Meghan McCain was in rare form and spared no one on Monday's tense episode of The View.

It all went down while Whoopi Goldberg was moderating a discussion about Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene comparing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's mask mandates on the House floor to the Holocaust.

"You know, we can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were definitely treated like second class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany," Greene said. "And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about."

McCain, a conservative, prefaced her thoughts on the matter by saying that she "can't stand" Greene and thinks she's a "crazy person."

Soon enough, however, she took aim at "The Squad" – consisting of Democratic Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib – and bashed the media for not covering what McCain feels is their anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Goldberg eventually had to interrupt Meghan's rant so that they could go to a commercial break.

"Why are you cutting me off?!" she shouted at Whoopi, who yelled back, "I'm cutting you off because we're going to break!"

When the ladies returned, McCain picked up right where she left off.

"When anti-Semitism shows itself on the right, it is easy to spot with crazy people and tiki torches," she argued. "When it manifests on the left, it's a lot more insidious and a lot more sinister and a lot more difficult to define."

In response, Goldberg pointed to all the same-party backlash Omar received when she said that Israel had "hypnotized the world" back in 2012. Sunny Hostin added that "criticizing the Israeli government and some of its tactics are not the same as being anti-Semitic."

Though McCain clarified that she didn't mean being pro-Palestinian was the same as being anti-Semitic, she did call on news outlets to cover anti-Semitic hate crimes the same way "as we do with every other minority."

"Hey, we bring dislike for all hate crimes," argued Whoopi, while Joy Behar actually took personal offense to Meghan's comment. "I resent that. I resent that remark," she said.

"Well, I resent a lot of things, so we're even," Meghan fired back.

But Joy did not feel that way.

"I've been talking about anti-Semitism on this show for 25 frickin' years," she hurled at McCain. "Don't tell me what I'm supposed to be saying, Meghan. You do your thing; we'll do ours."

Meghan replied, "I'm well aware we do separate things on this show, Joy, OK? And I know you've been here 25 years. I've been here four."

"That's right," Behar shot back. "You should have some respect for that once in a blue moon."

Attempting to get everyone back on a civil page, Goldberg chimed in, "Nobody wants anybody arguing. ... We would like everybody to stop comparing stuff or conflating stuff or saying stupid stuff, whether you're on the left, the right or in the center."
