In a completely unprecedented move: 64-year-old ‘The View’ host Whoopi Goldberg moderated the show today FROM HOME!
Whoopi’s co-hosts Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, and Meghan McCain were all in the studio and sat at the table while they discussed COVID-19; with Hostin saying while introducing Whoopi via video-conference: “Joy is still self-isolating at home and, as you all know, coronavirus in America is just spreading at an alarming rate. Life as we know it just keeps changing every single day, which is why our fearless leader Whoopi is joining us from home right now.”
Goldberg revealed that her decision to “stay home” came from “mixed messages” being sent by state and federal sources. The ‘Ghost’ actress said: “My brain said, until they can get themselves together, until they can figure out what they’re doing, I should not go in. I just felt like, with all this inconsistency, it wasn’t good for me.” Watch below and let us know: WILL ALL TALK-SHOW HOSTS NOW HOST FROM HOME? IS WHOOPI GOLDBERG STILL THE SAME EVEN VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE?
