The “Hot Topics” table was hotter than ever when the co-hosts started talking about politics. McCain was seemingly upset that Bloomberg has been gaining traction and expressed her doubt he could win over Trump.

“And you know what? A guy who wants to take away your health care is even in worse shape!” Behar fired back.
This was the point where McCain lost it and started throwing low blows towards Behar.
“You know what, Joy? I’ve been right about election stuff and you’ve been wrong,” McCain said. When Behar asked how she was wrong, she said, “you thought Trump was going to lose in 2016 and I didn’t.”

“Everyone on this panel repeats themselves, ok?” Behar replied.
“You’re trying to make yourself feel better, it’s weird,” McCain then said.
