    Meghan McCain stormed off the set of "The View" Friday after sparring with co-hosts and regular guest Ana Navarro during a discussion on the politics and ethics of whistleblowing, NBC News reports.

    The conservative commentator and co-host of "The View" suggested that Democrats were hypocritical for supporting a whistleblowing intelligence officer who filed a complaint about President Donald Trump. The complaint alleged that Trump made a promise to a foreign leader, as reported by The Washington Post on Thursday evening.

    McCain suggested that liberals were being hypocritical by supporting the whistleblower in this case, but they criticized the leak of emails from former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016.

    Toward the end of the segment on the live episode Friday, the women were all speaking, at which point McCain yelled, "Excuse me!"
