One of the more contentious moments for him came in 2010, when Behar and Goldberg walked off the set in protest to O’Reilly saying Muslims had brought down the World Trade Center.
Watch: O’Reilly Finds Out What ‘The View’ Just Did To Trump, Instantly Stuns With Shock Announcement
Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly announced on his program Wednesday night that he never intends to go on The View again, based on comments by one of the show’s hosts questioning Donald Trump’s mental stability.
As reported by Western Journalism, Joy Behar said on the program Tuesday that Trump is “not right in the head.”
The host hit on that note multiple times within a short period.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg introduced a segment on the soon-to-be Republican control of the White House and Congress saying, “this new administration is bringing in something we haven’t seen in a long time.”
“Mental illness,” Behar interjected. “Sorry, I couldn’t control myself,” she added in a tone somewhere between anger and joking.
Behar further explained her position. “It’s not that I don’t agree with [Trump], he’s not right in the head,” she said.
She said she found President Obama and the first lady to be “mentally stable ” when they appeared on The View prior to him taking office.
“Donald Trump has never appeared stable to me when he has come on the show, no he has not,” the co-host said.
O’Reilly reacted to Behar’s comments about Trump.
“Enough,” he said after showing a clip of Behar. “That’s ABC News. That’s a disgrace.”
Fellow Fox News personality Martha McCallum agreed with O’Reilly that the remarks were ill-advised and pointed out the program has lost 300,000 viewers over the last two years.
“It is interesting to note that Donald Trump has done very well in the recent polls we saw. His favorable ratings are up 17 points since August. They are out of step in hammering him across the board as they do on a daily basis,” she stated.
“I don’t object to them hammering Donald Trump. Not at all,” said O’Reilly. “They’re liberal people. They want to hammer him, but to say that he’s ‘not right in the head’…”
“That’s it. No more ‘View’ for me,” he proclaimed.
The Fox News icon has appeared on The View multiple times over the last decade, often to promote his books.
