Whoopi Goldberg, moderator of The View, unexpectedly halted the panel’s Hot Topics discussion today to chastise an audience member who appeared to be filming the proceedings on a cellphone.

Goldberg stood up and walked to the side of the stage area, saying sharply, “Sir, sir.”

“Hold on for a second. Sir, I need to stop you with the camera because I see you. Do me a favor and don’t pull it out again. I would appreciate it. “Thank you.”

The four co-hosts, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, sat stunned and astonished by the interruption, which occurred during a discussion of Donald Trump’s newest legal issues. “What was he doing?” Behar questioned gently, and Haines replied, “Recording.”

Later, during the Hot Topics segment, Goldberg sounded agitated once more when a producer allegedly indicated her to pause a debate to allow Hostin, the show’s legal expert, to read a legal note stating that Trump had denied any wrongdoing. “I’m going to get to her,” the irritated Goldberg declared. “My God, people, I am going to get to her. “May I finish my point, or do you want me to jump now?”

Behar chuckled and said, “Whoopi is not in the mood today for your shenanigans!”
