Things got heated on The View on Monday when the co-hosts debated over the Meryl Streep's comments about Donald Trump at the Golden Globes.

Streep is still making headlines for her speech at the Golden Globes in which she called out Trump for mocking the disabled New York Times reporter and bashed the President-elect's stance on various issues.

The ladies of The View weighed in on Streep's speech and while Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin seemed to be big fans of the speech, Jedidiah Bila was most certainly not.

"She [Meryl Streep] made me turn it off, if I'm being honest," Bila said. "Not because I don't respect her right to an opinion, not because - I think she's a phenomenally talented actress. But when I turn on an awards show, I don't want to be lectured about politics. There are people out there who love Meryl Streep and love her acting, but don't want to be made to feel they're being marginalized for their politics in a moment that's not about politics."

Her co-hosts disagreed with her, with Goldberg addressing the criticism against "Hollywood elites" by noting how few prominent conservatives have lost their jobs for speaking out against President Barack Obama, while many liberals have been lambasted for criticized Republican presidents.

As for Streep's choice of delivering the speech at the Golden Globes, Hostin noted that this was a perfectly fine platform.

"People look up to actors. They look up to athletes...and that was such an incredible platform," she said. "And what she was speaking out against, or in support of, was freedom of the press, not making fun of disabled people...supporting arts in our country. That message was really significant to me."

And as always, Behar had a quippy, biting take on the matter, making fun of Trump for tweeting that Streep is "over-rated."

"He's such a baby. Of course, she's no Scott Baio, I'll admit that," Behar joked. "He is supposed to be the president of the free world. He's not there to tit-for-tat over every little slight that goes through his thin skin. That is not his job."
