Whoopi and Joy explain why they walked off The View’s Bill O’Reilly interview

Last week there was a big controversy over the fact that Whoopi and Joy walked off The View while Bill O’Reilly was a guest. The topic was the proposed “Mosque at Ground Zero,” (which is neither a mosque nor is it at ‘Ground Zero’ but whatever) and when the shouting started happening and Bill said “Muslims killed us on 9/11” Whoopi and Joy both hightailed it out of there, leaving Barbara Walters and the rest of the panel in a tizzy. On Monday’s View, Joy and Whoopi spoke out about the incident. O’Reilly also apologized on his show, adding that it was everyone else’s fault for not understanding that he meant something that he didn’t specifically say. He said “I assumed that most people would be intelligent enough to know that I was saying ‘radical Islamists attacked us’.”

Both Whoopi and Joy said on The View’s postmortem that they’re glad they walked off. Whoopi claimed that she was about to go off on Bill and needed to leave while Joy explained that she was “enraged.” Barbara noted that Bill had played them both and that he got a huge kick out of it. Here’s Radar Online’s recap, where you can also watch a video clip.

On Monday, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar finally had their chance to defend walking off the set of The View last Thursday in response to guest Bill O’Reilly’s controversial remarks about Muslims being behind 9/11.

Since the show last Friday was pre-taped prior to the walkout, this was their first chance to publicly address the controversy on their own show.

“On this show we always speak about standing up to bigotry, so I stood up,” Behar said.

“I had reached my saturation point,” Goldberg added. “I had enough. As soon as I said the B word, I knew to get up and leave. Because I knew what was coming next. I was going to cuss him out.”

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, on The View last Thursday, O’Reilly said, “The Muslims killed us on 9-11.” Shortly afterward, an enraged Behar stormed off the set; Goldberg quickly followed her. The other ladies of the panel stayed on, and Barbara Walters scolded her colleagues for walking off.

Monday, Goldberg made no apologies; she said that O’Reilly needed to be more cautious in his statements because it’s a volatile time. “I”m glad that I left,” she said.

Walters countered that the country needs conversations without yelling and walking off. “You don’t walk out of your own home,” Walters chided her colleagues. “We’re used to Bill O’Reilly. He loves this. He loves to pull your chain. He loves to get you angry. This is just what he wanted.”

Responding to some critics who questioned if the entire scenerio was staged in a ploy to get ratings, Sherri Shepherd adamantly stated that it was not staged and that O’Reilly seemed “energized” during a commercial break. He promised to show the clip on his Fox show, The O’Reilly Factor, and said it would help the ratings for The View, Shepherd said.

Shepherd said that Walters told O’Reilly: “We’ve been doing fine without you trying to make our ratings.”

Shepherd added, “He knew what he was doing.”

The notoriously conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck said her staying didn’t mean she agreed with O’Reilly. Hasselbeck stressed that the terrorists killed us in the 2001 attacks.

Behar also brought up the Henry Fonda movie 12 Angry Men, cited the bigoted character played by Lee J. Cobb. She pointed out that the other jurors stood up to him. “I believe that was what I had to do,” Behar said.

“We are supposed to be civilized,” Goldberg said. “I know that had I stayed there, for me at least, it would have gotten worse. … He was so enraging and so disrespectful.”

“Bill loves to pull your chains,” Walters said.

Behar admitted her surprise at all the attention the incident attracted, saying, “Two girl comedians walk off in the face of a bully, and it gets to be all over the world. Interesting.”

During the interview with O’Reilly last Thursday, both Goldberg and Behar returned to the set to finish the interview after O’Reilly -prompted by Walters- apologized if he offended anyone by his comments.

[From Radar Online]

Whoopi and Joy interview people for a living, they’ve been doing it for years, and they should be able to handle some ass who is known for being incendiary without getting all offended and storming off. Bill needled the crap out of them and he got the response he was looking for. The fact that they still can’t see that they reacted just as he hoped they would just serves to show why they would leave in the first place. I don’t like Bill O’Reilly and I don’t agree with his point whatsoever, but everyone knows how he is. If they don’t want to deal with his behavior they shouldn’t have him on the show.

Joy also talked about this on her CNN show yesterday. I like what her experts have to say about the issue. Here’s video of that.

    what a farce. all of em. why do we even watch these people ?

  2. Marjalane says:

    It’s time for the shutters to close on the view.

  3. Just a Poster says:

    I’m quite interested in what others have to say about this.. and I will leave it at that.

  4. constance says:

    Old tactics. So old even the goons at Co$ use them. Ratings are really hard to come by these days?

    I hate this whole half-truth system of baiting attention. I feel like I’m watching my grandparents relive 2nd grade with my son. /le sigh

  5. YOYO99 says:

    They are weak. Never leave your own show!

  6. sammyhammy says:

    I think for so called “professionals,” stomping off liked spoiled children was pretty stupid. Why can’t people express differing views without others going into hysterics? It is, actually, possible to disagree with someone-even strongly-and still maintain professionalism and decorum.

  7. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I agree with Walters and that Bill sort of played them. I understand Whoopi and Joy getting upset because Bill was talking crazy but I have learned that people will do stuff just to rile you up and its your job to not take the bait and debate civilly and make that person look like the fool they are. Its hard, I know, just to release what I feel is pent up stress I will go off but in the end I looked just as stupid.

  8. Tess says:

    Bill’s gasbaggery turns me off. However, the reason Goldberg and Behar stomped off their own set was because they weren’t up to a meaningful debate of the issues with him and they knew it. So like two little kids who can’t cope, they pulled a stunt.

    It’s easy to toss off fashionable one-line responses but they lack a deep enough understanding of the issues to engage in an actual debate.

    What they showed is that they’re running on intellectual empty.

  9. Rachel says:

    I don’t watch the show. However, I do realize Bill O’Reilly’s explanation for what he said is the biggest crock of bullshit I’ve evear heard. He said exactly what he meant. Now he’s trying to backtrack on it. Do I think the ladies would have been better off remaining on set to make it clear that radical Islamic jihadists were responsible were the bombings? Yes, I do. However, if they were unable to control themselves well enough to make their point, it probably is best that they left and took some time to cool down. And I just don’t understand the appeal of Barbara Walters. She’s out of touch, and I don’t find her enlightened or enlightening in the least. The statement about leaving your own home is ridiculous. You’re right Babs. I wouldn’t walk out of my own home, but you can bet the farm that if someone came into my house spewing that kind of hateful, bigoted commentary, I’d throw him out on his ass.

  10. Jenna says:

    hey ladies, thanks for making all women look like we’re constantly PMSing. jesus.

  11. Praise St. Angie! says:

    yeah, I hate it when people disagree with someone on their own show and don’t show professionalism and decorum. when they lose their temper, yell, and throw insults.

    you know, when they just yell for the sake of yelling, and don’t let their guest get a word in by talking over them…


    but hey, Bill was always like that, even when he was just a lowly gossip-show anchor.

    and oldie but a goodie…the real freakout starts at about 1 minute in. Watch until the end so you can see him get up from his desk and rip his jacket off.


    He’s always been an unstable, pedantic bully…oh, and a sexual harasser.


    oh, and O’Reilly wouldn’t know a “meaningful debate” if it walked up and bit him on his loofahed ass.

  12. bros says:

    i agree bill got what he wanted. those two old gas bags should have stayed and held their ground. they should take lessons from jon stewart on how to own asshats who are on your program, without looking like a child or a sore loser. he ruled eric cantor last night, and eric didnt even know what hit him.

  13. Tess says:

    You can assault Bill’s character but what about the issue at hand?

    Deflection is a fair tactic but a losing strategy.

  14. LindaR says:

    Tess, I agree with you 100%. Walking away is what people do when they are trying to control a situation they feel they are losing control of. Certainly Goldberg and Behar were as they were unable to sustain a meaningful debate. I like to let gasbags like O’Reilly hang themselves with their own words. If they had remained quiet and let him speak he would have looked like a fool. Instead, they did.

  15. Bodhi says:

    “I assumed that most people would be intelligent enough to know that I was saying ‘radical Islamists attacked us’.”

    Then why the hell wasn’t he intelligent enough to SAY what he meant? Oh wait…

  16. kas says:

    So, on her own show, Joy sits next to a 9/11 Truther to state her case. That, she is fine with. Awesome.

    O’Reilly did not so much “backtrack” from what he said as state that he assumed people might possess the ability to know the entire Muslim Community did not attack us on 9/11.

    We do not, nor did we ever say “Japanese Extremist” attacked Pearl Harbor. There is a reason for that.

  17. Praise St. Angie! says:

    issue at hand?

    the issue for me is that bill o’reilly is a bully (and a bigot) and went on the show and acted the part. that’s not an assault on his character, that’s the truth. Those videos are indicative of his entire persona, as was his behavior on the View.

    to be clear, I don’t agree with them walking off the show, but they had their reasons. sometimes it’s better to walk away rather then simply yell while another person is yelling, especially one like o’reilly who won’t STOP yelling to let you get a word in, and says condescending things like “listen to me…you might learn something”.

    it doesn’t always mean you “aren’t up to a debate”, sometimes it means that the person you’re “debating” is unable to HAVE a debate. for him, it’s more like “let me have my say, and I’ll disagree and yell over you while you have your say.”

    “We do not, nor did we ever say “Japanese Extremist” attacked Pearl Harbor. There is a reason for that.”

    yup, because it was THE COUNTRY OF JAPAN who attacked, not a few Buddhist extremists.

  18. Stronzilla says:

    O’Reilly also apologized on his show, adding that it was everyone else’s fault for not understanding that he meant something that he didn’t specifically say. He said “I assumed that most people would be intelligent enough to know that I was saying ‘radical Islamists attacked us’.”

    Well Bill, you know what they say, when you assume you make an ass of u and me.
    How passive-aggressive can you get? What ever happened to Baba Wawa’s journalistic integrity? Has it become stretched as thin as her latest face lift? Since when is it okay to be a condescending a-hole to your viewing demographic? Or for an arbitrator to sit back and allow some numbnuts to spew his sanctimonious bile strictly for the purpose of baiting her co-hosts? So much for unbiased journalism. What people need are intelligent journalists who understand complex news issues and are able to communicate to them, not whip them into a frenzy with fear and hate-mongering. Whoopi should have stayed and let loose on both of them. Now that would have been ratings gold.

  19. Bodhi says:

    The problem, kas, is that there are still people out there who think that it was the entire Muslim community that attacked us & O’Reilly damn well knows that. He & his ilk say shit like that knowing that they will inflame people. If he meant extremists he should have said extremists.

  20. Aqua says:

    Bill O’Reilly was an invited guest on the view and was asked about his opinion on something and he said it.Bill is well known for his outrageous statements that’s why he has his own show.( he has been on the view many times before so everyone knew what he’s all about)I think the women were wrong to walk off because I wish they had stayed and stated their case.Defended their opinion instead of walking off.It was a discussion and both women let Mr.Bill get the better of them and he won,he’s having a field day with this and will for quite sometime this is the type of stuff he feeds off of and they gave it to him on a silver platter.Mr.Bill should have acted like a guest and not try to take over the interview and BW should have taken control of the situation.People should be able to have a discussion and or share their opinion about something without everything being so personal.I did love the Bitchslap that happened yesterday on T.V. as a result of all of this.

  21. Obvious says:

    If i were in that situation I would have walked off the set as well to calm down so I didn’t start telling him what I really thought of him and his bigoted ways.

    Muslims did not attack and kill us. terrorists who happened to BE Muslims did that. there is a HUGE difference. If I were a Muslim I would happily sue O’Rielly for slander or libel on this one. I’m fairly sure you would win too-especially as many of the people who watch his show take his word for truth.

    Not asking him to be politically correct or anything but do not make blanket statements like that.

    As for the Japanese and Pearl Harbor. it was the COUNTRY of Japan who attacked. It was sanctioned by the GOVERNMENT therefore it was not a few extremists.

  22. RHONYC says:

    @ Jenna

    hey ladies, thanks for making all women look like we’re constantly PMSing. jesus.


    exactly. 🙁

  23. Cheyenne says:

    O’Reilly is more full of ca-ca than an overflowing commode. He knew exactly how his words would be interpreted. Fox News has been exploiting anti-Muslim sentiment in this country ever since Obama was elected. The bullshit that station spews daily is unbelievable. All terrorists are Muslims, the “Ground Zero Mosque” (which is neither a mosque nor at Ground Zero) is a “Victory Mosque” celebrating 9/11, Obama is a closet jihadist, etc. etc. ad nauseum. And people are eating it up. It makes you wonder what this country is coming to.

  24. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    BOOOOOO bad show.. if this is what you do for a living, try to contain yourself. geez.

  25. Dannii says:

    so hold on-does this mean O’reilly is a zombie? as the muslims clearly attacked him on 9/11 yet he is still alive? and the entire muslim population is made up of only 19 people who hijacked the plane? thanks for clearing that up pop culture!

  26. Kitten says:

    @Praise-Well done with those links! Pretty amusing to see the blatant hypocrisy. I completely agree with what you said BUT I do think Joy and Whoopi should have stayed. I mean come on-they KNEW O’Reilly was going to say something inflammatory. They wouldn’t have invited him on the show without knowing that this guy gets off on making incendiary remarks. The worst part is that O’Reilly’s statements were so ridiculous that they had plenty of ammo for a good counter-argument. I hate to keep bringing gender into this, but the basic premise for the show is about womens’ viewpoints so yes, unfortunately it does make women appear reactionary and weak imo…

  27. teri says:

    Geesh you’d think Bill O’Reilly had said he had too many abortions to count. These old hags don’t have thier priorities straight.

  28. teri says:

    Sounds like a good idea to me!!

    I am appalled that so many of my friends are against the mosque near Ground
    Zero. We should allow it in order to promote tolerance. I also propose that two
    gay nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque to promote tolerance in the
    mosque. We could call them “The Turban Cowboy” and “You Mecca Me Hot.”

    Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork and have an open
    barbecue with pork ribs and across the street a very daring lingerie store
    called “Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret.” And next door in flashing
    lights open an
    Adult Toy Shop.

    I think for the purpose of tolerance we should build accordingly around the

  29. Obvious says:

    @Kitten I agree with almost everything you said-sadly though I doubt Joy and Whoopi get to choose who to invite-seeing as how neither of them like Bill I’m sure he wans’t their choice. And I think they should have stayed till commercial and calmed down, but I can’t blame them for trying to cool down before they lashed out.

  30. Kitten says:

    @#28-what do sex shops or gay nightclubs have to do with a church or mosque? It would be different if the Ground Zero area was devoid of all religion and was simply a memorial to honor those who died on 9/11 but if one is allowed to build a Catholic Church on the site then why not a mosque as well? I don’t see where sex shops or gay nightclubs etc come into it..
    You are comparing houses of worship to commercial real estate.

    @Obvious-yeah I’d like to think that I would have stuck it out myself but then again who knows? I’ve been known to shut down when you just can’t get through to someone. Also, they are not professional journalists, they’re both comediens so I suppose it’s a little different than say, Matt Lauer or Brian Williams walking out.

  31. bros says:

    teri, muslims arent intolerant about pork. its just against their religion to eat it. intolerance and haram are not the same thing and muslims arent offended by pork. 2, id say a couple of gay bars should go up around christian and mormon churches, since they are pretty much the epicenter of intolerance in this country.

  32. Jeri says:

    Joy, Sherry & Elizabeth should of walked out when Whoopi defended Mel & the “not rape rape” Polanski.

  33. Lucinda says:

    I love how Joy gets a former pro-wrestler to support her point, a guy who is a conspiracy theorist. Awesome! Getting my popcorn…

  34. hellen says:

    If Joy and Whoopie had just sat their asses down, this story would have been over DAYS ago. And now it’s getting kicked into its second week. O’Reilly couldn’t have gotten better PR if he’d paid for it. Good job, ladies (heavy sarcasm, in case no one gets it).

  35. lu says:

    They were not able to defend their point, and that is what saddens me cause I was on their side. They should have of known before hand how Bill was going to act and have better comebacks.

  36. Just a Poster says:

    Lucinda I agree. Jessie has a great concept for the show, but totally jumped the shark bringing Alex Jones onto it.

    Even the Conspiracy folks think Alex Jones is a nut job and kinda point and laugh at him.

    And Jerri I totally agree.

  37. Malice says:

    Bill gets off on doing that and its part of his shtick. However, I don’t think ANYONE should have to sit and listen to hate speech. However, in a way by leaving the interview, Whoopi and Joy gave Bill huge media exposure and press time.

  38. jover says:

    Thank you tess my thoughts also. Since these shows, across the political spectrum (lets take off our political blinders), don’t promote actual political discussion, but are mostly cheap forms of entertainment by cheap penny pinching networks, why do we even bother with them?

  39. Kim says:

    BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. They are unintelligent, imbeciles who cant listen to anyone who doesnt have exact same opinion as themselves. Self absorbed nitwits!

  40. The Bobster says:

    O’Reilly thumped the bullying Joy(?) Blowhard and Whoopi Cushion. It’s about time someone did. It’s also about time they recruit their audience from somewhere other than the local insane assylum.

  41. Kloops says:

    Comics *should* have been able to skewer him. I didn’t think it possible, but I think less of them. BOR is an idiot.

  42. Xx says:

    The histrionics were embarassing. They are so rude and high pitched. The show’s best days, if there ever were any, are behind them.

  43. lisa says:

    to disrespect an entire religion because of your ignorant hatred is not a point of view, it’s fear mongering/bullying/insult. but what do you expect when you invite this man on a talk show? he always interrupts everyone HE invites on HIS show. he doesn’t want to grow, learn, expand his perception of reality.

    he appeals to everyone who haven’t given much thought about world issues outside of watching mainstream media and their propagandist spins on what’s going on.

  44. craigc says:

    get these cows off of our tv screens, already!!!

  45. jensational says:

    sorry, people, but Muslims DID attack and kill US citizens on 9/11. If any of you would bother to read certain pages of the Quran, you would understand their way of thinking. Listen to the female muslims that have fled their country that are speaking out, begging us to listen to them about how to interpret the Quran, what it means and what Muslims are all about. Bill O’Reilly has it spot on but the liberal media just won’t listen. If they had their way, they would pretend that there is no problem with Muslims when ALL OVER THIS WORLD they are causing issues. Do any of you read international news? Have you listened to what’s going on with the Muslims in germany, france and england? Get your heads out of your butts and pay attention! Muslims are responsible and you can’t change that. Why should we bend over backwards for them with “tolerance” and butterflies when they have no intention of being tolerant themselves? of anyone!!!

  46. Lucky says:

    Can we send the ladies on the View to Muslim countries for the rest of their lives?

  47. Alicia says:

    Sorry to change the topic
    Does anybody know what Woopie is: lesbian? Asexual? Straight!
    Iam so curious!

  48. Obvious says:

    @Alicia she has a daughter, make of it what you will.

  49. Liana says:

    “On this show we always speak about standing up to bigotry, so I stood up,” Behar said.

    No. She walked out. Actually, yeah, she stood right up and walked away. She didn’t “defend” anything or anyone. She turned tail and ran.

  50. loopygorilla says:

    people like bill o’reilly are the worst of the worst, these extreme right wing people are just as bad as the extreme left wing.
    they distort the truth, and inflame debates with inflammatory and idiotic comments to throw people off.
    i mean the other terrorist attack in usa was the olkahoma bombing by Timothy McVeigh, who was 1. a militant 2. anti-government 3. a white supremecist (aka nazi sympathizers)
    yet nobody comes out and says “white people killed us at olkahoma” which would have been similar to bills “muslims killed us on 911”
    now it is widely known mcveigh was a white supremecist and anti-government and found like minded people in the west, yet we never sent troops to the west to “bring democracy” to those people…no we didnt.
    anyway, moderates like us can never ever have discussions with extreeme right or left, because the problem is, they always say the most outrageous things to inflame you.
    and this is what o’reilly wanted and whoopi and behar fell couldnt win, damm if you stayed damm if you left.
    that is the reason why the media rarely covers the views of moderates and always the views of extremists.
    moderate people who have a brain and use it cant get a word in, because we always talk sensibly about things, not run our mouths with propaganda aimed at inflaming people.
    what is worst about all of this is, o’reilly’s comments would likely be used by terrorist recruiters…. sigh
    so you see it ends up being a vicious cycle over and over and over again.

  51. loopygorilla says:

    and also on the matter of the Quran, it has been distorted by the extremist who use it as reason to stage terrorist attacks.
    but everybody has used “god” as their reason, bush said in his invasion of Iraq, “god is on our side”.

    And remember, all this war dates back to the early century, when the roman catholic church used the bible and its “god” to launch the “holy war” against the muslims to take the “holy land” which the catholic church deemed was their right.

    jerusalem is the holy place for all religions, muslim, christian, and jew…

    this in turn, angered the muslims and they invaded europe.

    the world would be a better place without religion all together.

    no matter who has the seat of power, religion and god have always been used by extremists whether they be muslim/catholic/jew etc… as an excuse for war.

    and dont bash the muslims all the time, look at northern ireland. thats catholics fighting the protestants.
    and that whole saga dates back to king henry and the english monarchy who seperated from the catholic church and catholics were hunted in england and jailed.

    this led to Guy Fawkes, who was probably the dubbed first terrorist, who planned to blowup the english parliament and kill the king because they were protestants.

    and in india/pakistan, you have hindus fighting muslims.

    anyway. end of discussion. we could spend an eternity talking about this. but ultimately the less airtime we give to extremists the better because it doesnt serve anything except to create more anger and distrust within people against other people.

    omg my brain hurts, can we get back to gossip now 🙂

  52. Tess says:

    @ Alicia

    I think Whoopi’s gay. I think she’s quiet about it…basically in the closet.

    Which is interesting for someone so opinionated and outspoken about just about everything.

  53. Stronzilla says:

    Whoopi has a daughter, had a serious long term relationship with Frank Langella and another with Ted Danson. Cheers!

  54. Leah! says:

    By walking away, Joy & Whoopi just proved that they couldn’t have an intelligent, informed, CALM discussion about the issue at hand. Even though you can’t really debate with someone like O’Reilly, they would have shown themselves to be the bigger humans beings, and this discussion wouldn’t be happening.

    On a side note, I actually think O’Reilly is smart like a fox… not his views or politics, but in how he presents his public persona. He played them, and they walked right into his hands.

  55. LittleOat says:

    If during a discussion somone tells me “Listen to me, and you’ll learn something,” you’re damn right I’m walking away, professional interviewer or not. If someone says something like that, they aren’t trying to engage in a discussion. They are trying to force their opinions on you because they think they are smarter and know more. That is beyond disgusting and disrespectful, and I can’t believe these women are getting as much negative attention as they are.

  56. Ruby says:

    I understand why they did it. Ever watched O’Rielly factor? The guy is….. well thats why I would leave too before I would say something I regretted or smacked him one.

  57. Chris says:

    All these people take their opinions waaay to seriously. They’re getting old and want to think that somehow they’re going to make a difference but they won’t, nor will anyone until we stop fighting among ourselves and turn our hostility towards the real enemy…the ruling class.

  58. redlips says:

    I am so sick of this “PC” crap! What the hell has happened to “Freedom of Speech” in this country? O’Rielly was invited on the show, was asked his opinion on something, he stated it and Goldberg and Behar lost it! They acted like spoiled little brats and walked off the show.

    Barbara Walter’s needs to grow a spine and a pair of cajones and fire both of them. Better yet, The View needs to be canceled. Whoopi can stand up for Mel Gibson and Roman Polanski however, when it comes to 9/11, she gets her feathers ruffled because O’Reilly didn’t call them “Muslim terrorist”. Please!

  59. Jen says:

    It’s interesting to me that Joy calls O’Reilly a bully. I think she is exactly that when she and Elisabeth argue. She screams and yells until she “wins.” From the couple half-shows I’ve watched, the loudest one wins. There is no room for differing “Views.” The show should be called the Loud and Obnoxious.

    I’m glad you posted the article about their explanation. I had DVR’ed the show because I wanted to hear what they had to say, but haven’t wanted to actually hear their voices so I haven’t watched it.

  60. TaylorB says:


    To be fair Mr O’Reilly invites people on his show yells over them and cuts their mics if they disagree, so save the ‘freedom of speech’ arguement for someone who actually respects it to begin with. All of these people are entertainers interested in ratings and all their grandstanding and rude behaviour gets them ratings. He shouts and insults, they stomp off like children… Frankly they all have frequently behaved badly and until they can show some respect they shouldn’t expect much in return. Very sad state of affairs.

  61. Tibet Girl says:

    Stay and battle it out if you have a point. But walking off of the show and letting him have the forum shows weakness and inability to debate.

  62. truthzbetta says:

    They’re cowards who can’t take another view, and only like to gang up on Elizabeth four or five at a time for a “fair” fight.

    It was unprofessional and they could have expressed their opposition better.

  63. Francesca says:

    Bill and Elizabeth went off and had sex after this cuz it made them both so hot and sweaty to bash our President.
