Whoopi Goldberg Both Shut Down Meghan McCain And Taught Her A Valuable Lesson In One Breath

"I'm not trying to cut you off, I'm trying to get you heard."

This morning on The View, things got pretty heated at the table when the topic of national security came up.

ABC

People began talking over one another, which is when moderator Whoopi Goldberg stepped in:

And then Meghan McCain jumped in, but Whoopi was quick with her response:

ABC

And then Meghan SAID THIS:

ABC

COME AGAIN? I KNOW she didn't just take that tone with Madame Whoopi.

At this point, Whoopi was not having it with Meghan:

ABC

"So, when I'm saying to you 'Hold up,' because we're not hearing each other, I'm not trying to cut you off, I'm trying to get you heard."

And, when Meghan tried to cut Whoopi off once AGAIN, Whoopi silenced her with the ultimate cut off:

ABC

*Cuts to commercial."

The internet had a FIELD DAY with this whole ordeal:

Whoopi earned her paycheck today for sure. I clutched the pearls after she said, "You know what, let me tell you something about the View..." but Meghan McCain just had to keep going.

Whoopi, you know what? Let me tell you something about the view.. Everyone...#TheView

Whoopi read tf outta her again then hit her once again with the “we’ll be right back” I forever Stan

When Whoopi adjusted her seat and said "Let me tell you about The View"--woo, I felt that in my bones. Megan, as usual, was not ready. https://t.co/9VzvLzyjPC

@FredTJoseph She’s so caught up in being privileged she couldn’t even allow Whoopi to defend her. That’s some deep shit.

I honestly respect that everyone in that audience & on that stage ~understood~ the significance in Whoopi settling herself in her seat and saying “You know what. Let me tell you something...” https://t.co/IrLkEwsrEb

When Megan tried to come for Whoopi Whoopi said: Let me tell you somethin about The View. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

When Whoopi or any black woman adjusts her seat and says “Let me tell you something,” that translates into:

@illustjuan @HarlemMC Whoopi: were all trying to be heard, so let's keep it civ- Meghan: Well me, personally I... Whoopi:

All Whoopi was trying to do was ensure that everyone — INCLUDING MEGHAN — had their chance to be heard. And, instead of paying Whoopi the same respect Whoopi pays her, Megan tried to interrupt her. But Whoopi was not having it.

CBS

So, shoutout to one Ms. Whoopi EGOT-Winner Goldberg. She truly has the patience of a thousand saints.
