About halfway through The View broadcast, the hosts spoke with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

The host looked down at her note card and began reading, before quickly cutting herself off.

She read: “Now, the aver– Ooh.”

The View fans shocked as Whoopi Goldberg blasts co-hosts on live TV

Sara appeared to notice something else going on on the teleprompter or someone trying to get her attention off-camera.

Confused about what was going on, she looked off to the side and called out to a producer about what she should be doing. 

“Ooh, are we gonna be going or staying,” she asked.

Someone told her that it was time for commercial, and she just said “okay” and let Whoopi Goldberg take over.

The moderator jumped in to complete one of her roles on the show of letting viewers know: “Oh, we’ll be right back. Don’t go away.”

Earlier in the broadcast, fans were left in shock after Whoopi blasted her co-hosts on live TV.

The moderato started making demands of the fans in the studio audience, as well.

The View co-hosts Sara, Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Ana Navarro were busy discussing gun violence when Whoopi told them she’d had enough.

It started when the 66-year-old was about to go to commercial but Sunny wanted to add one more thing.

Whoopi told her she had to do it “quickly,” but it turned into the hosts all jumping in once again to share their own thoughts.

Eventually, it got to be too much and Whoopi cut them all off.

She blasted them, saying: “Okay, I can’t do this with y’all! 

“I gotta go. I can’t do it anymore.”

The moderator took the show to its commercial break, and she then turned her attention toward the studio audience and told them they could “clap” now.

Last week, host Sara was in the hot seat, but not for anything she did on The View.

Instead, The Chase fans accused Sara, who also hosts that reality show, of helping to "rig" the competition show.

During the broadcast, Jeopardy! champ James Holzhauer returned as the chaser, whose job it was was to beat the contestants in trivia.

Fans don’t think the players had a fair shot against the game show champion, thanks to the host, Sara.

One upset fan tweeted: “Is it just me or does @sarahaines read the final questions faster for the Chaser? 

“Doesn’t seem fair.”
