A debate between off-camera pals Joy Behar and Meghan McCain turned nasty on the December 3 episode of The View during a discussion about the death of former President George H.W. Bush, and fans took to Twitter in support of the panelist who just celebrated 20 years on the ABC talk series.
The tension between Behar and McCain came to a head after Behar compared the good things the late 41st President of the United States did for the environment with what she believes are bad things the current administration is doing.
"He [President George H.W. Bush] signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever. This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did, and Obama did. And if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect," stated Behar.
Fellow co-host Meghan McCain snapped back at Behar for her point of view.
"Can we focus on the president, please? I don't want to talk about Trump," McCain said, interrupting Behar.
President Bush died at age 94 on Friday, November 30
