Judge Jeanine Pirro said her backstage interaction with Whoopi Goldberg on the set of “The View” Thursday was akin to “abuse,” after Goldberg allegedly told Pirro to get the “F*#k” out of the building.
“It was, you know, no-holds-barred. Whoopi got angry,” Pirro said on “Fox & Friends” Friday. “What the viewing audience, the television audience didn’t see is, they popped up the cover of my book as she pushed off the desk. You know, unplugged her mic and then stormed off the set.”
Pirro said she calmly got up to leave the set and went to the back staircase, to find Goldberg standing at the bottom of the stairs.

“I said something like, Whoopi, I’ve spent my whole life fighting for victims. Because we talked about rapes and all that,” Pirro said. “[Goldberg] says F you, F you. And then I said, ‘Did you just said f-you.’ And she said ‘Get the F out of this building. Get the F out of this building.’”
“She was nuts going off the set,” Pirro added. “I’ve been a prosecutor, judge, D.A. for 30 years. I’ve tried murder cases. I can go toe-to-toe anybody. But that was abuse. And it was sad. It was a sad moment that you know, she was triggered. And I’ve never understood triggering.”
Pirro said Goldberg apologized to the audience but not to her, but claims she received a phone call from a producer on “The View.” She has yet to return their call.
