Last Thursday, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the set of The View after Bill O'Reilly said Muslims attacked us on 9/11 and added that he was against the building of a mosque around the site of the World Trade Center.
He then went on his Fox News program and defended his point of view.
Now, Goldberg, Behar and other panelists on The View have spoken out again on the feud. Focusing on the controversy this morning, Goldberg said she had no regrets about walking away mid-interview because she "was gonna cuss him out."
Behar, meanwhile, said: "We talk about standing up to bigotry, so I stood up."
For once, though, an old woman was actually the voice of reason, as Barbara Walters chastised Goldberg and Behar for letting O'Reilly "pull your chain" and added: "This is a country full of rage, and we should be able to have conversations without rage... without obscenities."
Sounds like a job for Jon Stewart!For her part, Sherri Shepherd said the fight with O'Reilly "was not staged and not a publicity stunt," although the show is clearly happy to drag it out for the purpose of ratings.
As for Elisabeth Hasselbeck? She looked at the camera and said to President Obama: “Can we please use the word ‘terrorist’ again, Mr. President?”
Well, okay then.
