“You had so many senators that voted to not only impeach but also convict President Clinton for, yes, perjuring himself,” Hostin said. “Many of those same people are still in the Senate. I cannot believe they would vote to impeach and convict a sitting president for perjuring himself and they would not vote to convict a president, and remove a president, who clearly wanted to use a foreign government for his own personal benefit to impede our very democracy.”


“That is the height of hypocrisy for this Republican-led Senate,” she said. “I don’t understand it.”

“My job here is not to litigate the ethics of it. I’m an ABC political analyst along with being a 'View' co-host, my job is to analyze the politics of it,” McCain, the daughter of the late Arizona Sen.

“But I’m not talking about you,” Hostin responded, “I’m talking about people that are the senators —"

“Just let me finish. I let you talk. Just let me finish,” McCain said as she and Hostin continued to talk over each other.

Goldberg then cut in trying to steer the conversation away when McCain asked whether people wanted to hear a conservative perspective "on the show ever."


"Girl, please stop talking," Goldberg responded. "Please stop talking right now." 

"No problem. I won't talk for the rest of the show," McCain shot back, to which Goldberg responded: "I'm OK with that, if you're going to behave like this."

"I'm not behaving like anything," McCain continued. "I'm trying to show conservative perspective." 

The show then cut to commercial break after Goldberg called for a timeout. 

The moment between Goldberg and McCain went viral on Twitter not long after.
