Where President Biden should have been standing and making remarks about the elections was a clip from The English, a series on Amazon Prime. Whoopi laughed it off and said, “I think that was him.”

The audience was able to laugh along with Whoopi, but tensions ran quite high during Thursday’s taping. It seemed that she and her co-host, Joy Behar, were at each other’s throats. Whoopi was called out for not participating in the show and the pair snapped at one another.

Is Whoopi Goldberg Checked Out On The View?

Joy Behar isn’t the only one who has called Whoopi Goldberg out for seeming bored or “checked out” during the show. It seems that, during lighter moments, Whoopi simply looks uninterested and fans have been calling her out for some time.

Last month, The View moderator was put on the spot for not having anything to add to a discussion. She admitted she had nothing to say on the topic and appeared to be completely checked out.

Thursday’s episode was dedicated to Whoopi because Sunday is her 67th birthday and The View star is off from the show on Fridays.

This is what really got under Joy’s skin. She insisted that Whoopi at least pretend to be interested in what was going on. Although Whoopi is often very involved in conversations on the program, there are moments when she obviously checks out. The other hosts were all discussing sex and marriage. While Joy, Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin, and Sunny Hostin were all discussing the topic at hand, Whoopi had her head on her shoulder.

From certain angles, it looked as if she was staring directly into the camera and bored out of her mind. Joy had enough of it though and slapped her hand on the shared desk saying, “Whoopi, stop that! Whoopi? Pay attention! It’s your birthday, be nice.”

The other hosts seemed unbothered though and Alyssa Farah Griffin even stood up for Whoopi, telling Joy she can’t do this to her on her birthday. Sara agreed and said it felt like Joy was trying to punish her. Whoopi exclaimed, “You are!”

What do you think? Was Joy punishing Whoopi for being checked out on The View? Let us know what you think in the comments!

  1. No she wasn’t. It was said in fun. People who have watched the show for many years know that. Joy made a perfect remark today “get a sense of humor”. I really dislike articles that do nothing but try to cause hate and discontent

  2. Joy your entertaining and if all eyes are on you why shouldn’t someone else check out for a moment. It’ll be your turn sometime. Let people be themselves. MYOB
