Sometimes there’s simply nothing you can say. 'The View' co-host Meghan McCain on Tuesday, March 9, slammed the British monarchy after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s March 7 interview with Oprah Winfrey, declaring that 'the American experiment is the way to go.' Her co-host Whoopi Goldberg paused for three full seconds to process, proceeded to give an epic eye roll and then managed a simple but measured response: “OK.”  The sentiment resonated with viewers at home, while the clip raked in more than 1.6 million views and shot Whoopi’s name up Twitter’s list of trending topics. 

McCain began her rant by saying she doesn't defend the monarchy, adding "I'm a red-blooded 100% American who celebrates freedom anyway I can and always." The co-host's comments came during a discussion about Meghan and Harry’s tell-all with Oprah and British TV personality Piers Morgan, who stormed off 'Good Morning Britain' on March 9 after he was called out for questioning Meghan’s revelations about her mental health struggles.

McCain went on to give a spiel about the American Revolution and explained that she doesn’t want to defend the monarchy because she’s “a red-blooded 100% American." She then discussed how the generational divide in the UK: "We have two American women — Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey — who are single-handedly finishing what George Washington and our revolutionary counterparts did. I'm all for it," she wrapped up. The whole thing left Whoopi so stunned that her facial reaction united the Internet in laughter. 

"MEGHAN MCCAIN IS SUCH A BAG OF WIND!!!! LOVE WHOOPI BUT CAN NEVER EVER WATCH THE VIEW AS LONG A MEGHAN IS THERE!!!!", said a tweet. "I don’t know who wins. Oprah’s “What?” or Whoopi’s “Okay”," said another. The expression became quite popular. "LMAO.... I love when Whoopi says "Okay" and has a bewildered look on her face after somebody makes an unnecessary or aimless remark," said a tweet. Another shared: "I just... what is John McCain's daughter even saying?? (We all confused Whoopi!)". One declared he'd be using the phrase quite often:" #TheView Whoopi Goldberg "Okay" and expression after whatever Megan McCain was ranting about shall henceforth by my mood and response and look for the remainder of 2021 when i get dumb responses on social media."

Whoopi received a lot of love from fans. "Whoopi is all of us," said a tweet, while another said, "I want Whoopi to adopt me". "I want Whoopi’s response to be my ringtone," said another. Some even went on to say, "Whoopi is not recognized as a comedic genius on par with Chaplin... she should be." Others said, "Whoopi reminds us all the time why she is a muthaf****n' American treasure. I stan, I have been a Whoopi fan for a loooooooooooooooooooong time and I don't see that changing any time soon."
