People have noticed that Whoopi Goldberg makes the same empty promise to almost every guest – that they can come to co-host the show.
On Wednesday’s (29 June) episode of The View, which is being filmed in the Bahamas, the hosts welcomed Chef Marcus Samuelsson and actors Simu Liu and Chloe Fineman to the set.
Goldberg invited Liu to co-host in the future after Liu talked about his experience swimming in the sea with pigs, becoming a Marvel superhero, and other subjects.
“Next time we see you, come and hang with us for the whole show. And do a thing with us. Be one of our co-hosts,” she told him.
“Oh my goodness,” he said with a stunned expression and asked if they’d be shooting in the Bahamas.
As per indy100, the same thing was said by Goldberg when Chloe Fineman from Saturday Night Live made an appearance later on in the show for an interview.
“Next time we’re all together, you also should come and co-host with us. Have some fun,” she said.
“That would be…,” Fineman said while nodding her head.
Show viewers mocked Goldberg on Twitter for her “empty promises”.
“Now celebrities, raise your hand if Whoopi offered you a guest co-host seat on #theview,” one wrote, accompanied by a photo of a scene from Mean Girls where everyone is raising their hands.
Another agreed, “Literally every day.”
A third user wrote: “Whoopi, can you please stop inviting all the guests to co-host? #TheView.”
Overall, even though it can be a little controversial, Goldberg is not shy about sharing her opinions.
Goldberg sent a warning to US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas on Monday (June 27) regarding his inter-racial marriage and the consequences of the Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last week.
“What’s next? Clarence Thomas is signaling they would like to get rid of contraception. Do you understand, sir? No, because you don’t have to use it,” Goldberg said on The View.
She added: “We were not in the Constitution either. We were not even people. You better hope that they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say ‘you should not be married to your wife,’ who happens to be white. Because they will move back.”
