‘The View’ cuts to break when Ted Cruz becomes too much for live audience, person appears to shout ‘F–k you!’
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) for some reason decided to go into the harpies’ den on “The View” Monday, where some in the audience reportedly yelled, “F*** you!” at him before co-host Whoopi Goldberg told those interrupting him, “You gotta go!”
The conservative senator gave the leftist female panelists hell while he was on their show concerning the hypocrisy of Democrats. It was refreshing, to say the least.
“#TheView couldn’t handle learning about the hypocrisy from Democrats: Hillary said Trump was an ‘illegitimate president’ & said George W. Bush was ‘selected not elected.’ Joe Biden said ‘Al Gore was elected president,’” he tweeted after the segment aired.
The co-hosts kidded Cruz over New York Yankees fans booing and flipping him off at Sunday night’s playoff game as the show began. The interview then turned to the midterm elections, national debt, and federal spending.
Cruz was answering a question about skyrocketing inflation, the economy, and economic hardships Americans are facing, when a group of protestors in the New York studio began to chant, “Vote for climate now!”

“We do cover climate here, guys,” one of the hosts yelled back.
The senator ignored them and kept responding. Goldberg seemed to get irritated by the disruption. She turned to the audience and shouted at them, “Excuse me. Excuse me, ladies! Excuse us! Let us do our job. Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say, but you gotta go! You gotta go! You got to let us do our job!”

The same audience members appeared to tell Cruz, “F*** you!” when the senator claimed that the core question for voters is whether their lives are better now than they were two years ago, and he noted, “I think for the vast majority of Americans, the answer is no.”
Co-host Farah Griffin admonished the audience saying, “Come on guys.”

From there, the interview devolved into a shoutfest with co-host Ana Navarro requesting that Cruz “lower your voice” during the exchange.
Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin kidded Cruz that “they weren’t even protesting you.” Cruz then took back what he said about Yankees fans and said he was “really glad you don’t have a Van Gogh on the wall,” referencing recent climate change protests where activists threw soup on a painting worth millions and then glued themselves to the wall.
Hostin confronted the Texas senator about the Republicans’ agenda and what he feels conservatives stand for now. Cruz didn’t miss a beat and proudly stated, “Jobs, freedom, and security.” He then predicted that the midterms would be a “tidal wave” for the GOP and that they’ll retake both chambers of Congress. At that point, the activists once again began shouting from the audience.

They didn’t stop and the show eventually went to a commercial break. When the show resumed, co-host Ana Navarro apologized to Cruz.
“I’ve been very vocal and very critical of you, but I am sorry that this has happened in our house,” she stated.

“Three members of the audience interrupted The View today during Sen. Ted Cruz’s appearance protesting about climate,” an ABC News spokesperson told The Daily Beast. “They were promptly escorted out by security.”
Following Navarro’s congenial statement, the claws came out.
“I frankly don’t know how you get over your wife being called ugly. I don’t know how you get over those kinds of calamities against your father,” Navarro stated. “But you obviously have gotten over it, and today you sing a very different tune. Were you lying then or are you lying now?”
“Those are real results that make a real difference and I’m proud of that record. And why did I choose to work with him even though I was pissed off at what he said?” Cruz responded concerning former President Trump. “Because I had a job to do and I had a responsibility.”

He continued to spar with the leftists over their unhinged hatred of Trump. Which, of course, led to the back and forth over election results and claiming who had won what. In the end, the round decidedly went to Cruz.
