A lot can be said about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, but Meghan McCain's statements on The View have even Whoopi Goldberg looking flabbergasted.

It all started on the Tuesday, March 9 episode of The View. As per usual, the talk show hosts were discussing the trending topics, including the fallout from Meghan and Harry's bombshell claims. For once, the women were all in agreement and voiced support for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Don't believe us? Here's what McCain said: "The American experiment is the way to go, and if we have two American women, Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey, who are single-handedly finishing what George Washington and our revolutionary counterparts did, I'm all for it."

The Ghost actress then shook her head and moved on with an "OK," as one does when there's truly nothing more to be said. 

As comedian Justin Martindale wrote on Twitter, "It's 2021 and we are all Whoopi."

Meghan also reacted to the viral moment, although she didn't exactly see the humor in the situation. She explained on Twitter, "I am extremely patriotic. I love the founding fathers. I don't know why this is shocking or confusing for anyone has met me for even five seconds..."
