Stelter: Reducing a liar's reach is not the same as censorship
(CNN) —  

Things got so heated between Meghan McCain and Joy Behar on “The View” on Monday that their fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg stepped in to steer the conversation back on track.

The women, along with fellow hosts Abby Huntsman and Sunny Hostin, were discussing the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during their “hot topics” segment at the beginning of the talk show.

During this segment, the co-hosts started talking about border security, President Trump’s immigration policy and Kevin McAleenan, who is expected to take over DHS in an acting capacity.

Tensions started to rise between Behar and McCain when they were debating what plan of action McAleenan can bring to the border security issues.

“[For] many friends of mine, this is the number one and only issue,” McCain said. “If we sit here and act like there isn’t a crisis, that it’s just crazy people living in border states that think that there’s a crisis, that is a winning ticket for Trump going forward.”

Behar responded, discussing giving aid to countries in Central America.

“That’s the way to solve the problem — keep them there, happy,” Behar said. “Give them a house, give them food, help them, help their children.”

“Give a Nicaraguan a house?” McCain said, cutting her off. “We’ve had a bunch of liberal guests who do not want to send in aid at all.”

“I’ve listened to you, let me just finish,” Behar responded.

“Part of your job is to listen to me,” McCain fired back. “Just saying.”

Before the situation escalated further, Goldberg jumped in.

“Here’s what’s not gonna happen today — we’re not gonna do this,” she said. “Everybody gets a conversation piece, everybody gets to say their piece, and we don’t need to comment if we don’t like what we’re hearing. Just let folks talk.”

Goldberg then turned to Behar and asked her to finish what she was saying, but a clearly startled Behar replied she “forgot what it was now.”

This isn’t the first time the two have clashed over issues on the show. In January, McCain spoke to Van Jones about her conflict with Behar.

“I will say first and foremost, when we are not talking about politics we have a lot in common,” she said. “But we are both true believers and she’s a great sparring partner on air for that reason because she truly believes in her liberal principles.”

She added the two get along great backstage and sometimes go out for drinks together.
