Meghan only came back to taping this week and things are already off to a feisty start. On today’s show, Joy and Meghan got into a little tiff during the Hot Topics segment.
Whoopi started the conversation by asking if there should be more than two political parties in America. She asked her cohosts if they thought that would be a good idea for the country and possibly help the divide.
Joy was the first to answer the question. She said everyone should let the Republican party eat themselves.
Child…. Joy Behar & Meghan McCain

Joy admitted there is a division within the democratic party but nothing like that of the Republican party. Joy said, “On the one hand you have the Republicans. and on the other hand you have the seditionists…Among the Democrats you have the progressives and the moderates which is de rigueur.”
She said the Republicans have a lot more issues going on right now than the Democrats. Meghan can be seen rolling her eyes and looking frustrated during Joy’s answer. She interrupted Joy saying, “Are you kidding me. You have people like AOC.” Meghan argued the Democrats have just as many issues as the Republicans at the moment. Joy didn’t appreciate being cut off and shouted, “Excuse me, I’m not done.”

Meghan didn’t let up shouting back, “Well it’s just that’s completely inaccurate.” Moments later, she told the cohost, “Joy you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave – you missed fighting with me.”
Joy replied with a stoneface, “I did not. I did not miss you. Zero.”
Meghan felt some kind of way telling Joy, “That’s so nasty. That’s so rude. That’s, like, so nasty.” Whoopi then stepped in and moved on asking cohost Sara Haines for her opinion.
After the episode aired this morning fans were quick to come to Joy’s defense on social media. One said, “I don’t care about Joy Behar disrespecting @MeghanMcCain Meghan we will not defend you, you are nothing but a Trump hating liberal. We don’t care that your last name is McCain, it means nothing to us Raise your hand if you agree.”
Another was tickled by the exchange commenting, “Child…. Joy Behar & Meghan McCain I hollered then had to rewind so I could record this moment. Face with tears of joy Face with tears of joy Face with tears of joy.”
