The View Season 26 premiere week: Whoopi Goldberg’s bloopers
Whoopi Goldberg made many mistakes during premiere week. However, fans have noticed her goof-ups over the past few months. On Thursday, September 8 of The View, she tried to end the show early. First, she plugged the new series, The Con. Whoopi gave her usual end-of-the-show speech to the viewers. Yet, there were 20 minutes left of the show to go.
“Next, I want to say, you all have been a great audience,” Whoopi Goldberg said as she looked at the camera. “We love that you’re watching. We want you all to have a great day. Take a little– no?”
Someone behind the scenes got Whoopi’s attention. They informed her that it wasn’t time to end the show yet. Her co-hosts laughed as they looked at her in confusion. They realized what Whoopi was trying to do.
Her co-host Sunny Hostin said: “We’ve got more show!” Joy Behar chimed in: “We’re not done!” Whoopi didn’t seem to care that there was more to come. She gave up as she said: “Ok, whatever. We’ll be back!” It’s already been a long week for Whoopi Goldberg, which is a relatable feeling for many Americans returning to work and school.
Apologizes to Sara Haines
In that same episode, Whoopi Goldberg cut off Sara Haines. She apologized to her after she realized what she did. Many of their “Hot Topic” segments have been heated. The View host has been slammed by fans for being rude to her fellow co-hosts. Some have even called for Whoopi to retire.
The 66-year-old comedian apologized to the 44-year-old after interrupting her during a heavy discussion about Presidential portraits. Later in the discussion, Alyssa Farah Griffin shared her thoughts about President Joe Biden, which had Joy rolling her eyes. Whoopi spoke passionately about seeing many women of color in the White House one day. She thinks women have the ability to “juggle” many tasks at once.
Sara Haines jumped into the conversation. She wanted to add her own opinion as the actress abruptly cut her off. Whoopi realized what she did and then said: “And I just cut you off, sorry.”
