Meghan McCain is in hot water once again on The View. During a discussion on the October 29 episode of the show, Whoopi Goldberg made Meghan, 35, stop talking so she could give her a lecture about respecting the other cohosts.

The women were arguing about veterans and how much respect they deserve. Meghan was saying that veterans should get the benefit of the doubt in all situations, no matter what.

Joy Behar said, “Just because somebody served does not ipso facto make them above reproach.” Meghan shot back, “For me and where I come from, it does.”

“If you are putting your life on the line for freedom, yes,” she explained, fuming. “Soldiers in this country and veterans and people who have lived and fought for freedom get a pass from me.”

That’s when Whoopi, 63, cut in. She told them all to “just take a breath.”

“Everybody has something to say at the table, we really do want to hear from everybody, but we’re starting to do that thing,” she continued.
