Tempers ran high when McCain and Navarro were discussing the government shut down on air, but behind the scenes it got even worse.
“When the show ended Ana walked up to Meghan, put her hand on her shoulder and said ‘Hey, Meghan listen’ in an effort to smooth things over,” an insider snitched to RadarOnline.com.
McCain wanted nothing to do with her and shouted “Get away from me! Don’t talk to me!” the source spilled.
A rep for McCain denied any off-camera confrontation.
“Meghan left the show quickly as she was late for a doctor’s appointment, but that was it," the spokesperson told RadarOnline.com. "She absolutely did not scream at her.”
Earlier in the show, Senator John McCain’s daughter had gone head to head with the Republican strategist on the broadcast.
“I understand that DACA is a very emotional issue at this point, but most Republicans are on my side on this one, Ana,” McCain said on the show.
“And I just don’t — it’s really difficult for me to understand sometimes why you still consider yourself a Republican.”
Navarro replied: “Because I’m a Hispanic, immigrant Latina.”
While Whoopi Goldberg tried to diffuse the conversation, Navarro blamed the Republican Senate Majority Leader for not funding the military with the shutdown.
“But I would say to, you know, to Mitch McConnell, I would say to everybody, because it’s going to happen on both sides, do not play with the people that are defending our national security that are putting their lives at risk to keep the rest of us safe,” she said.
McCain told her she was being “intellectually dishonest” by blaming the government shut down on the Republicans.
“To sit here and say this government shutdown has anything to do with my or the Republican Party’s love for the troops is just intellectually dishonest,” McCain said.
