Joy Behar treated her as an old friend when Whoopi first appeared on the screen. She praised Goldberg's shirt that said "OVER IT" on the front because no doubt Ms. Goldberg was "over it" by this interview.
"They sent people to test me and they tested me and it was like 'oh no you're not coming back. We're not sending anybody to your house, you have Corona. And it was like 'wait what?' It was a shock because I'm triple vaxxed. I haven't been anywhere, I haven't done anything. But that's the thing about the Omicron, you just don't know where it is."
Whoopi Goldberg was amazed since she thought she did "everything" she was "supposed to do."
Behar said Whoopi had a "serious" pneumonia case in the past few years and it made the gang concerned, but Goldberg was convinced given this condition. She believed the CDC, ABC, and CBS protocols were outlined in enough detail that "The View" host knew what she had to do.
Whoopi admitted that she's lucky because she's rich and has family around her. And she has a big enough house with enough places to hide from other household members.
This news comes as "The View" is trying to replace Meghan McCain, but incompetent to find the right "Goldilocks" Conservative that fits the show's standards.
When it comes to what other politicians in DC have said so far – Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Ayanna Pressley have also matched the same lines about how important it was that they all had their COVID booster shot.
The backdrop of everything going right now with the pandemic is the recent Omicron COVID variant that prioritizes infectiousness despite the downgrades to overall hazard. When Vice President Kamala Harris tried going on "The View" back in September, it was impeded by false-positive COVID-19 tests that created confusion before she went on air.
Candace Owens has come up as a potential host. Owens has interviewed former President Donald Trump and other prominent officials. The problem in "The View" executives' eyes is how outlets like The Daily Beast habitually frame stories about Conservative commentators, making it impossible to meet the selective criteria.
The closest they've been able to get in terms of potential is an offer from Kat Timpf from Fox's "Gutfeld!" show. But sources say Timpf rejected the offer partially because of the past reputation of how "The View" treats Conservatives—as in poorly.
