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.
One thing they seemingly didn't agree on? McCain's assertion that Markle and Winfrey are continuing the same work that President George Washington and the other founding fathers started.
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 camera then panned to Goldberg, who stared in shock and amusement for three quiet seconds, which was probably one of the longest stretches of silence to ever happen on The View.
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..."
