Recently, Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s “The View”, made headlines once more when she attempted to explain the voting process using unconventional language, creating an unexpected moment during a political discussion.
The conversation began when someone mentioned that former congresswoman Liz Cheney had proposed running as a third party against Donald Trump.
Alyssa Farah Griffin then commented that the United States is “careening into dictatorship” under Trump’s leadership and urged her fellow panelists to be aware of how dangerous he is.
Given that Trump is projected to be the nominee no matter what, Sunny Hostin questioned whether anyone was paying attention to voices such as those of Griffin and others.
She conceded that Liz Cheney may be their ‘savior’ since she stands up for democracy.

“I would consider this sort of split ticket that she’s talking about,” she shared, while Goldberg chimed in to say that everyone thought she was “crazy” when she proposed the idea of a split ticket years ago.
Later in the segment, Goldberg proclaimed, “This is not about them, this is about us,” referring to the candidates in the upcoming presidential election. “We make this decision. I don’t like polls because polls can be manipulated. I like when somebody goes in and they vote.”
Goldberg continued, “I like when somebody puts their thing in the box” — at this point, she used exaggerated hand gestures to mime shoving something into an imaginary container — before adding, “and they walk back, you know? Because then you can see what someone did.”
Sara Haines, seated beside Goldberg, was taken aback after hearing her remarks; Goldberg then offered an apology.
“I know that sounded worse than I meant it.” Thankfully, Goldberg caught her innuendo.
“It did, yeah,” Hostin told Goldberg, and the rest of the panel, including Haines, laughed. But Goldberg was adamant, saying, “I know where it came from now!”
