Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican, was being interviewed, and host Whoopi Goldberg yelled at spectators who kept the interview from finishing by heckling the women on The View panel.

The audience was yelling something that sounded like “Cover climate now!” as the senator was discussing inflation.

Cruz turned back toward the co-hosts and continued his answer to the question after grinning at the viewers. Alyssa Farah Griffin and Goldberg decided to put an end to the commotion when the hecklers didn’t stop and kept shouting inaudible things at the women.

“Guys, we cover climate here!” Griffin yelled back before Goldberg yelled back, “Excuse me! Ladies, excuse us. Let us do our job. Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say but you gotta go.”

Griffin then joked with Cruz, “They weren’t even protesting you.” Sunny Hostin clarified, “They’re accusing us of not covering climate change and we do that almost every day.”

“Good thing you don’t have a Van Gogh on the wall,” Cruz joked, referring to climate activists who threw tomato soup at one of the artist’s paintings in a London museum.

Another irate viewer said something similar right before the commercial break, but ABC muffled the sound this time. Hostin’s jaw fell while he just chuckled and sipped awkwardly from his cup. Although the comment was suppressed, it was claimed that the guy shouted “F**k you” at Cruz.

Ana Navarro apologised to the senator once the show resumed after the commercial break, saying, “I’ve been very vocal and very critical of you, but I am sorry that this has happened in our house.”
