Things went off the rails once again on today’s episode of “The View,” but this time in a way that might surprise you, as Whoopi Goldberg and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ended up being unlikely allies for once.

Goldberg Kicks Out Climate Activists

The Daily Caller reported that when Cruz joined the women of “The View” on Monday to talk about various political issues going into the midterm elections, he was immediately heckled by climate activists who appeared to be chanting, “Vote for climate now! Vote for climate now! Vote for climate now!”

Goldberg, however, was not having any of it.

“Excuse me, ladies, ladies, excuse me,” Goldberg said, turning on the radically liberal protesters. “Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say, but you gotta go. Gotta go, you gotta let us do our job. You gotta let us do our job.”

Producers of “The View” then had no choice but to cut to a commercial when a protester yelled, “F*ck you, Ted Cruz.”

When the show resumed after the commercial break, it appeared that the loudmouth protesters had been escorted out of the audience, which remained relatively silent for the rest of the segment. A spokesperson for “The View” later told Entertainment Weekly that the activists were “three members of the audience” who were “promptly escorted out by security” after the outburst.

Co-host Ana Navarro, who claims to be a Republican but regularly takes the left’s side on most topics, even apologized to Cruz for the actions of the climate activists.

‘The View’ Hosts Are Typically Anti-Republican

It isn’t often that you see Goldberg defending a Republican these days, however, as she and her fellow leftwing co-hosts are currently in full panic mode about next month’s midterm elections.

“The Republican Party is happy to let corporations never pay another tax the rest of their days, they will cut Social Security, they’re going to cut lunches for children,” co-host Joy Behar said last week, according to Fox News.

“They are not going to help you, so why would you vote for them?” she continued. “And yet, I see that it’s very close, that people are not understanding what the stakes are. And I find it, I find it sad and depressing. They lose because people, like, I don’t know what they’re thinking right now, and then the Dems have to come in and fix it again. That is what’s happening.”

Goldberg Reflects On ‘The View’

As “The View” celebrated its’ 25th anniversary earlier this year, Goldberg reflected on what it’s been like to work on the show. 

“This show has gone through 25 years of lots of different people and lots of different opinions and there’s nothing like us on television in the world,” she said at the start of this season, according to Hello Magazine

“It’s not easy, and you have to have a whole lot of skin, thick skin, because on any given day half the people on the planet hate you, and on the next day half the people really like you,” she continued. “It is what it is, and you know, I’m glad to have a gig.”

Goldberg and most of her co-hosts on “The View” are so shamelessly liberal that her defense of Cruz from hecklers comes off as refreshing. Perhaps they should all think about defending conservatives more in this way in the future.
