Jeanine Pirro said Whoopi Goldberg, one of the hosts of ABC's "The View", has not offered an apology for heaping abuse on her during Thursday's show.

Pirro cast Goldberg's belligerence as part of a broad trend of widespread left-wing hostility towards conservatives. Whoopi shouted over Pirro, then ended by exclaiming, "Say goodbye I'm done!" "I did say to her in the middle of all of this, 'You and I have never had a problem before.' And then I had to go back to work to finish the show, which should tell you none of us were chasing her because we still had another segment to do". 'I am exhausted of people starting a conversation with, "Mexicans are liars and rapists". But I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never, ever seen anything like this.

"Listen, I'm 62 years old", Goldberg continued.

She said Pirro stopped to confront her offstage, jabbing a finger in Goldberg's face, and claimed to have been a more effective victim's advocate in her career.

Pirro came on the show to promote her new book, "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy".

Pirro fired back: "You know what is frightful?"

Another source told us, "Jeanine could have walked by her".

"For twenty years, this show has always had people on with different views", Whoopi said, before listing off a bunch of conservatives - Newt Gingrich, Charlotte Pence, Corey Lewandowski, Trey Gowdy and more.

Asked why she wrote the book, Pirro explained that she wasn't "an ideologue", but because she had been in "the crime business for over three decades", she knows "a con" when she see one.

"So you saw me do something I very rarely do", she said.

Things got hot during her second book-plugging segment, which Den Mom Whoopi seemed to cut short, though today she insisted it ran as long as scheduled.

"When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment", an source told Page Six. I'm so sorry.' Honestly, I didn't even know if I should get up from the table because I knew it wasn't over, but the host just pushed the chair away and stormed off. "Goldberg reported lashed out in response: "'F-k you, get the f-k out of this building'.

Pirro wrapped up her conversation with Hannity by saying Trump supporters "deserve better than to be berated" for their politics. "I very rarely lose my cool and I'm not proud of it". Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump.

"After the segment, which ended when it was supposed to - it was not early, was not late, it ended when it was supposed to - she then called everybody at the table a name I can not repeat on TV and said it in front of the audience", Goldberg revealed.
