If you didn’t you can catch the high-jinks all over the Internet that included some offensive comments from O’Reilly aimed at the ladies intelligence and ended with two of the ladies storming off the set.
What happened that caused the ladies to show off some majorly unladylike behavior?
What started off as a relatively mild conversation spun out of control when Bill O’Reilly brought up the subject of the Muslim mosque near the 9/11 site in New York. The spin out started when O’Reilly turned to co-host Joy Behar and uttered the words, “Listen to me because you’ll learn.” The comment elicited a juvenile response from Behair including rabbit ears over his head and the chant of ‘pin head’. The conversation continued to disintegrate until Joy decided to take her leave with co-host Whoopi Goldberg soon following.
Barbara Walters tried to calm things down with O’Reilly saying. “I want to say something to all of you. You have just seen what should not happen. We should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking off stage. I love my colleagues, but that should not have happened.”
The reality is even though I am not Bill O’Reilly’s biggest fan (or one of his fans at all), the ladies of the view looked more like immature brats rather than respectful ladies listening to different views. We should all be teaching our children that even if we don’t agree with someone, we can at least show them the respect to listen to them and engage in a conversation. The ladies looked like immature brats in their reaction to O’Reilly’s comments.
While O’Reilly may feel that it is ‘inappropriate’ to build a mosque near ground zero, the truly inappropriate behavior came on the part of the ladies from The View today!
What did you think of Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg’s behavior on the view?
