Whoopi Goldberg Starts Playing With Midshow Out of Boredom Laser Pointer
Whoopi Goldberg often pokes fun at some of the conversation topics on “The View,” but on Wednesday’s show, she pretty much just completely checked out. At one point, she even started playing with a laser pointer.
Things really started to go downhill early on for the moderator, as the show’s second segment focused on Klondike’s recently announced discontinuation of ice cream treats known as Choco Tacos. On this topic, host Sara Haines was passionate, berating Klondike for “dropping it on my newsfeed like it meant nothing to them” and mourning the loss of the snack. Guest host — despite supposedly being the permanent host soon — Alyssa Farah Griffin supported Haines, but Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar admitted they’ve never had a Choco Taco before.
As the conversation continued, the camera repeatedly cut to Whoopi, who looked both unimpressed and exasperated by the segment’s trajectory, saying absolutely nothing. Eventually, she reluctantly launched a taste test for the hosts.
Upon returning from the commercial break, Whoopi monotonously informed the audience that Behar had indeed enjoyed his Choco Taco, before moving on to the next topic.

This time they discussed a new series on Lifetime called “Phrogging: Hider in my House”. The show explores true stories of people who have experienced phrogging – a phenomenon of people secretly living in someone else’s house.
Based on the preview clip alone, the hosts of “The View” were terrified and started discussing how this would even be possible. Whoopi had more of a hand in this segment, but ultimately it prompted the hosts to discuss how they still love real crime projects, even if said projects are scary. As the camera panned to Whoopi again at the end of the chat, she could be seen holding her chin in her hand and playing with what appeared to be a laser pointer.
Later, when Neil Patrick Harris joined the panel to discuss his new Netflix show “Uncoupled,” he took a moment to say how funny Whoopi was to watch because of his reactions throughout the hour.
“It was a hilarious episode to watch,” he said. “Because once the Choco Taco conversation started, Whoopi Goldberg checked out. I was backstage just making fun of you because they kept cutting you off and you’re just – it’s like something broke inside you. You’re like ‘This is what the show got to?’
