Bill O’Reilly angered hosts of ABC’s “The View” so much that Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off of the set.
The incident occurred during a heated debate about the proposed Islamic cultural center near Ground Zero in New York City. O’Reilly said President Obama’s qualified support of the center was evidence of the “gulf” between him and the American people. 61% of Americans polled think the center should be moved, but the President has recognized their Constitutional right to have it there. Goldberg and Behar objected strongly to O’Reilly’s claim.
“This is America!” Behar said.
“Listen to me because you’ll learn!” O’Reilly interrupted her, to gasps from the audience.
