Three audience members were thrown out of “The View” set on Monday after disrupting a live television interview of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz — and that was just the beginning of the explosive exchanges on the popular talk show.
Two women began shouting “Cover climate now” while the Texas Republican was answering a question.
He briefly paused, smiled and then continued talking as the women shouted, most of it indecipherable to a television audience.

“Ladies, ladies, excuse us,” host Whoopi Goldberg said when Cruz stopped. “Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say but you’ve got to go.”

The shouting ended in less than a minute. The women, who were not seen on television, were apparently ejected.
But as the segment headed into a commercial break, a third woman yelled out a comment that was bleeped out for the TV audience.
When the show returned from the commercial, host Ana Navarro apologized to Cruz.

“I’m sorry that this has happened in our house,” she said.
It wasn’t all niceties, however. Cruz and the liberal hosts clashed over the upcoming midterms and a history of Democratic Party leaders challenging election results.
#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."

The ABC daytime show, which just began its 26th season, has seen its share of hostility among on-air hosts through the years.

But it’s the first time in memory that it has seen such a demonstration by people in its small studio audience.
