Whoopi and Joy ‘Take a Walk’ on Bill O’Reilly on ‘The View’

This clip left me with my mouth wide open!
Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are here to let you know that they DO NOT PLAY when it comes to politics and current events. The two outspoken liberals of The View were part of the morning team interviewing The O’Reilly Factor‘s host Bill O’Reilly of FOX News.
Things got heated and BUTT UGLY when the topic came up about the Islamic Center near Ground Zero in Manhattan. Basically, Joy and Whoopi agree with President Obama that Muslims have a right to worship wherever they see fit. Bill, on the other hand, thinks that the mosque doesn’t need to be built anywhere near the site.
All hell broke loose when O’Reilly said that “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” PUMP. THE. BRAKES.
All of the cast members started talking in five different conversations. They had to bleep out Whoopi saying, “That’s bullshit.” [I agree with Whoopi]. Finally, O’Reilly was not backing down so Big Joy got her ass up, said she wasn’t taking this anymore, and literally WALKED OFF THE SET with Whoopi right behind her.
It’s about damn time we got some daytime-journalism-interviews with some people speaking up for what is RIGHT!! To hell with those FOX News talking points about Muslims. Attacking Islam is not the answer. PREACH JOY AND WHOOPI!!
