White House crasher tearfully accuses Whoopi of assault. Next comes the lawsuit.

These people – all of them – have absolutely no class, at all!

Fans of “The View” missed the best part of Wednesday’s show – an obscenity-laced backstage battle between co-host Whoopi Goldberg and White House gatecrashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi.

Tareq Salahi, upset that Goldberg touched his wife during a segment of the show, had an “elevated and heated” exchange after the live telecast.

Michaele and other cast members were on “The View” – to promote tonight’s launch of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Neither Goldberg nor Tareq Salahi were part of the interview.

As Michaele recounted a drink-throwing dispute between Tareq and one of the wives, Goldberg walked on stage, touched her shoulder, and said, “Excuse me, can you get back to the White House, please.”

“Oh, if you’d like us to, we can,” Michaele replied as Goldberg walked away. After the show, a sobbing Michaele fled to a security office, saying she felt attacked. The Salahis claimed Goldberg got physical with Michaele; Goldberg confronted her and the F-bombs flew.

“As the broadcast clearly shows, the accusation was completely unfounded,” a “View” spokeswoman said. “After being told she was being accused of hitting Ms. Salahi, Whoopi proceeded to defend herself verbally.”

It’s just the latest incident for the Salahis, who hit the celebrity map last year after being accused of crashing a White House state dinner.

The backstage battle should be on the menu when the cast appears on “Today” this morning – and when Goldberg appears on “The View.”
