“With all due respect, Mitt Romney is nothing like my dad,” Meghan snapped.
The bickering intensified when Goldberg, 63, scolded the much-younger Republican opponent: “You're half my age,” Goldberg exclaimed. “So hear what I know!”
“That's very dismissive. I don't understand what my age has to do with my political perspective right now,” Meghan answered. “I just don't think it's very nice.”
When the show cut to commercial, a visibly shaken McCain had a heated conversation with a producer.
“There was definite tension on the set,” a source told The Daily Mail. “Meghan looked like she was ready to walk off the set.”
The tensions remained high until Goldberg approached Meghan to patch things up before the show returned, but even after the ladies sat back down at their infamous table, the aftermath of the fight was still evident.
“Meghan barely interacted with the other hosts,” the source said. “It seemed like Meghan felt she was being attacked. I don't think she's going to last much longer.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, this is not the first time McCain has clashed with her co-hosts. Check out this Radar gallery to revisit some of her biggest feuds.
In February, 2019, McCain went off on producers after enduring what she claimed was “unfair treatment” from her co-host Joy Behar.
The outspoken co-hosts got into an on-air argument during the Feb. 11 episode when Behar led a discussion about Senator Amy Klobuchar’s 2020 presidential bid, and cut off McCain before she could offer her own opinion.
“If you’re going to have a hissy fit, we can’t continue,” Behar scolded McCain.
A source dished to Radar that the on-air feud left McCain heated and “losing patience.”
The “unhealthy” and “toxic” environment on the show were just two of the reasons Abbie Huntsman left the show in early 2020. Huntsman also may have lost patience with McCain, who become an outcast because of “rude” behavior.
McCain seems to have had enough as well, telling sources that she is planning to leave the show behind. A source told The Daily Beast that McCain is “feeling like a caged animal,” on the panel, and can no longer handle her heated confrontations with liberal-Democrats Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin.
After the clash, the source said the tension was still high. “Meghan barely interacted with the other hosts.
