'The View:' Bill O'Reilly Was 'Condescending,' 'Disrespectful'

Photo Courtesy - ABC/Barwall Productions(NEW YORK) -- Three days after their blowup with Bill O'Reilly, the women of The View reflected on the incident with cooler heads and calmer voices, but made it clear they still aren't fans of the Fox News host.

Monday's edition of the ABC daytime talk show began with a re-hashing of what happened Thursday when O'Reilly declared that "Muslims killed us on 9/11," prompting co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to walk off the set.

"He started with me as soon as he sat down," Goldberg said. "You can't throw stuff around like that, in my opinion. I'm glad that I left. I'm glad I left because I had reached my threshold."

View creator Barbara Walters said that a walk-out was probably what O'Reilly wanted.

"He loves this, this is just what he wants," she said of the controversy.

Goldberg did offer that O'Reilly's emotions may have gotten the better of him. "I suspect that maybe he said something that he actually didn't mean," she said.

O'Reilly defended his views last week on his prime-time Fox News show.
