Judge Jeanine Pirro weighed in on her Whoopi Goldberg screaming match on her Saturday night Fox News show, Justice.

This Thursday on The View, the outspoken show host got into a screaming match with the Republican Fox News star, slamming her for supporting President Donald Trump's "hate" and insensitive ways.

Pirro had accused Goldberg of having "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

Goldberg then hit the roof, shouting, "I don't have Trump Derangement… let me tell you what I have. I am tired of people starting a conversation with Mexicans are liars and rapists."

Pirro countered, "You know what's horrible? When people who shouldn't be here end up murdering the children of American citizens," referring to the immigration controversy.

This enraged Goldberg, who yelled back, "What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people."

"Say goodbye! Goodbye! I'm done!" Goldberg added, kicking Pirro off of the show.

Pirro has said appearing on The View with Goldberg - made her feel like "less than dirt."

On her own July 21 show, Pirro, 67, addressed Goldberg, 62, directly about their showdown.

She said, "I much preferred you (Whoopi) in the movie Ghost than on The View."

Pirro also humorously thanked Goldberg for making her new book, "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals," number one in the best seller lists!

Also on her well-rated Saturday show, Pirro said the argument showed how political discourse in America has become truly toxic following Trump's surprise Presidential win.

"Everyone has the right to speak, but when you can't even listen to what someone has to say because you despise the man who is President, you undermine not the President of the United States, you undermine the United States," Pirro stated.

The judge seemed to want to end her feud with Goldberg.

"All of you saw it, and most of you probably heard both my and Whoopi's version of what you didn't see after I was thrown off the set. But I'm not here to rehash old news, and in the spirit of tonight's opening statement, I'd like to close the book on this and move on," she said. "And I'd like you to do so, as well."

Pirro revealed to her viewers that until Thursday she and Goldberg actually had maintained a "friendly" long-time acquaintanceship.

"Furthermore, I've been a guest on The View many times... and have always been treated with respect," she added.

"To Whoopi, I accept that you and I have different versions of what happened on Thursday on and off the air and that we have completely different takes on President Trump and the job that he's doing," Pirro concluded.

It's just the latest in various controversies involving The View and Fox News personalities recently.
