Ted Cruz Shuts Down Whoopi Goldberg: ‘So It’s Illegitimate When Republicans Win but Not Democrats?’

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has shut down co-host Whoopi Goldberg during an appearance on “The View” by highlighting the Democrats’ double standards on election victories.

The Texas senator went to New York to watch the Houston Astros beat the Yankees last night.

The New York crowd couldn’t handle the Yankees’ loss and heckled Cruz.

For an encore, Cruz went on “The View” today and promptly shut down Goldberg and her co-hosts for defending Democrat “election deniers.”

The hosts suggested that Republican candidates cast doubt over election results when they lose while claiming that Democrats accept the results when they don’t win.

Arguing with Whoopi, Cruz read off a list of recent Democrats calling into question our elections.

“Hillary Clinton and Stacey Abrams sat here and said their elections were illegitimate and you guys were fine with it,” Cruz said.

Cruz then said, “In 2002 Hillary said, ‘George W. Bush was selected not elected.’

“Joe Biden said ‘Al Gore won the election.’”

“So it’s illegitimate when Republicans win but not Democrats?

“People at home are saying ‘OK, is my life better than two years ago?’ and I think for the vast majority of Americans the answer is no,” Cruz added.

But the interview went off the rails after that as climate activists disrupted the show.

Protesters started shouting over Cruz and the co-hosts causing the show to cut to a commercial while security resolved the issue.

Whoopi said:

“Excuse me, ladies. Let us do our job.

“We hear what you have to say, but you got to go.

“You got to go. You got to let us do our job.”

According to The Daily Mail, the hecklers were climate protesters:

Climate activists tried to drown out Republican Sen. Ted Cruz during a heated appearance on The View on Monday morning.

Whoopi Goldberg told the protesters to leave as they condemned the panel for their lack of coverage on on climate.

At one point the show had to cut to commercials when one member of the crowd appeared to yell ‘f*** you, Ted Cruz’.
