“The View” co-host Meghan McCain stormed off the set Friday after she was admonished by guest host Ana Navarro for raising her voice.

The show’s panel was discussing the whistleblower complaint against President Trump when Ms. McCain criticized liberals for supporting this whistleblower while being critical of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who released emails from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and, according to Ms. McCain, “directly affected the outcome” of the 2016 election.

Ms. McCain said she thinks intelligence leaks hurt the country and should be condemned on all fronts.

Co-host Abby Huntsman agreed, saying what Assange did was “just as dangerous as what the president is being charged with doing or people are assuming that he did.”

Ms. Navarro and co-host Joy Behar started weighing in on the issue when Ms. McCain interjected to clarify her comments.

“And maybe I was — Excuse me!” she said. “Maybe I was clumsy in the way that I said it.”

Ms. Navarro fired back, “I’m two feet away. You don’t have to scream at me that way.”

“I don’t know what you just said,” Ms. McCain responded.

“I said, ‘Don’t scream at me. I’m two feet away,’ ” Ms. Navarro repeated.

“You know what?” Ms. McCain said. “That’s so rude, Ana.”

Ms. McCain could then be seen walking off the stage just before the show cut to a commercial break.

“Another day, another drama,” she later tweeted.
