Fox News' Jeanine Pirro appeared on Thursday's airing of "The View," but didn't end up staying long after she said that co-host Whoopi Goldberg suffered from "Trump derangement syndrome."

What happened?

Pirro, who was appearing on the show to promote her new book, "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy," kicked off her remarks after Goldberg insisted that she wanted to repair the divisiveness emerging from — or as a result of — the Trump administration.

Though Pirro was on Thursday's show to plug her book, the majority of the co-hosts appeared to only want to needle her over her vocal Trump support.

Pirro was forced over a period of nearly three minutes to defend her support of the president and his stances through heated crosstalk at the table.

Pirro then said that Goldberg simply suffered from "Trump derangement syndrome."

Immediately outraged, Goldberg fired back, “Listen, I don’t have 'Trump derangement.' Let me tell you what I have. I’m tired of people starting a conversation with 'Mexicans are liars and rapists.'”

She added, “Listen, I’m 62 years old. There have been a lot of people in office that I didn’t agree with. But I have never, ever seen anything like this. I have never seen anybody whip up such hate. I have never seen anybody be so dismissive."

"What I suffer from is the inability to figure out how to fix this. That’s my issue," Goldberg spat.

Goldberg moved on in what appeared to be an attempt to stick to script, and began asking Pirro about her book.

“How long has the ‘Deep State’ been there, and who’s running it?” Goldberg asked, a nod to "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals."

Pirro, at this point, didn't seem to have any interest in anything other than addressing Goldberg's barrage of insults, and fired back with her own retort.

"You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!" Pirro shouted, but it wasn't enough for Goldberg — who had had enough at this point.

"What is horrible is when the President of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people," Goldberg responded. "Say good-bye. I’m done."

The show, indeed, did cut to commercial and Pirro was nowhere to be seen when the co-hosts returned to the air.

"You saw me do something I very rarely do,” Goldberg said when the show returned from commercial break. “You saw me lose my cool. And I’m not proud of it and I don’t like it.”

“But I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical, because that’s one of the things I try not to be on this show,” Goldberg added.
