Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro went OFF on each other during what may be one of the most heated fights on ‘The View’ to date!
UPDATE, 9/20/19, 4:55pm ET: Meghan McCain responded to the drama on Twitter… in so many words. Though she did not address the incident directly, she tweeted out a gif that read, “I’m Good. It’s okay. We’re good.” She wrote, “Another day, another drama.” You can see her tweet below.
ORIGINAL: Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro went into the weekend with a massive fight on The View, leaving the audience truly shocked about what they witnessed go down. During the first Hot Topic on the September 20 episode, Meghan and Ana got into a screaming match while discussing Donald Trump‘s whistleblower scandal. Meghan took offense to the CNN commentator, who was filling in for Whoopi Goldberg, saying that everyone in the Trump administration “actually impacted” by the allegation “would like for this to go away.” Meghan freaked TF out, yelling, “all Americans are impacted by this.” The women began talking over each other in a heated debate, ending with Ana eventually saying, “Don’t scream at me; I’m two feet away!”
The show went to commercial break, with Meghan taking a sip of her water before storming offstage. She was clearly taken aback by the audience laughing at Ana’s remark, and it probably didn’t help that they reacted in the same matter when she walked off. The spat began with Joy Behar asking the women if they thought Nancy Pelosi should impeach the president in light of the revelation that Trump secretly corresponded with a leader of a foreign nation (thought to be Ukraine). Meghan made a callback to earlier this month, when she called Wikileaks founder Julian Assange a cyberterrorist. “There are a lot of liberals who are okay with Julian Assange releasing Hillary [Clinton]’s emails, but are screaming bloody murder about this whistleblower,” Meghan said. “All interference from a foreign country, all of it is bad and should be condemned. You can’t play party politics with this.”
Joy attempted to ask Meghan what she was referring to, but got “excuse me, I’m still speaking” as a response. This is when Ana tried to give her two cents, and told Meghan to stop yelling at her when she attempted to cut her off. “You know what? That’s so rude, Ana,” Meghan scoffed. “Welcome back,” she added sarcastically (Ana frequently fills guest hosts on The View).

Meghan returned to the set after the commercial break, but the tension was thick for the rest of the episode. This isn’t Meghan’s most controversial moment on The View this month, though. Days before her “cyberterrorist” remarks, on the season 23 premiere, she defended AR-15 owners and said that she refuses to live without guns.
