(Newser) – Meghan McCain responded Tuesday to the latest fight she and Whoopi Goldberg got into on The View. The co-hosts were discussing the impeachment process on Monday's show, and McCain was trying to explain that, politically, it could be a bad move for the Democrats. After one exchange, Goldberg told McCain to just "stop talking." She did, but on Tuesday, she responded on Twitter. "Good morning - to all the fellow conservative 'girls' who won’t be quiet," she tweeted alongside an image of Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons. Also Tuesday, sources told Page Six that producers had to step in to calm things down during the commercial break, as there was still an hour of the show left.

McCain had also noted Monday, "Pointing out things that are true is part of my job even if it angers people and even if it’s politically inconvenient," later adding, "Pretending half the country doesn't exist won't make them disappear. The culture war is real, and Americans who aren't part of the overwhelmingly anti-conservative media deserve to have their views represented." She also got support from others, including conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, who tweeted, "Nothing says tolerance and diversity like Whoopi Goldberg telling Meghan McCain to shut up after McCain says literally *a* sentence about the political fallout from impeachment. So much sisterhood from Goldberg." (Read more Meghan McCain stories.)
