WATCH: Behar and Whoopi Rudely Cut Off Alan Dershowitz as He Defends Trump

Hosts on “The View” Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg rudely interrupted guest Alan Dershowitz multiple times as he defended President Trump as they were clearly irritated by his positions.

Fox News reports “The View” erupted with testy moments on Wednesday as Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz defended President Trump against the co-hosts during a discussion about the ongoing Senate impeachment trial.

Many of the co-hosts took issue with Dershowitz’s answers, including Behar who, at one point, told the Trump impeachment defense attorney that his argument was “baloney.” Co-host Whoopi Goldberg also cut off Dershowitz off as he attempted to give some historical background on whether impeachment could proceed without actual crimes.

He was responding to co-host Joy Behar’s claim that no other constitutional scholar agreed with him about needing a crime for impeachment. Dershowitz, a renowned legal scholar, has written dozens of books. Behar and Goldberg do not have law degrees, although co-host Sunny Hostin does.

“In 18…,” Dershowitz started before Goldberg interrupted him. “Ok, wait, wait, wait,” Goldberg said. “Alan, you know, in 1492 Columbus sailed the seas blue but listen, I need us to move on.”

Dershowitz told her that he wouldn’t move on without addressing the history of impeachment. “You’re not going to get any time because you got four people trying to ask you questions,” she responded.

Dershowitz proceeded to claim that academics were choosing their position because President Trump was in office. “Shortly after the Constitution was enacted, the dean of Columbia Law School said that the weight of authority was in favor of it being a crime,” he said.
