We will not see the women of To watch in early space. All four panelists – Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines – was in the same group during this debate, completely clear with their feelings towards billionaire “phallic-off” space race. And in today’s hot topics, they’ve gone as far as teasing Michael Strahan for choosing to shoot me into space with Jeff Bezos‘Blue Origin rocket ship.
Strahan will launch into space next month as part of the ongoing Blue Origin missions, missions that have taken the likes of William Shatner and Bezos to heaven. While some celebrities have thrown their names into the race to be next, To watch would feel comfortable at their panel on Earth.
“I don’t know about you guys, but are you going?” Goldberg asked her co-hosts, who responded with a wave of ‘no’ from every woman on the board.
“And it’s not because I think it’s unsafe, because this travel is actually much safer than when we’ve had major space disasters in the past,” said the host. Kristen Soltis Anderson started. “I don’t like the feeling of weightlessness.”
“Oh, I do!” Behar interrupted, cutting in with a quick joke. “I like weightlessness, are you kidding me?”
After saying that there are huge differences between men and women in deciding to go to space – men prefer to shoot themselves in the sky – Hostin had some questions about the outlook as a whole.
“Why are you going? What is the purpose of going? ” she asked.
“If he said it was free!” Goldberg said. “You don’t have to spend any money. You know it’s a hundred million thousand dollars ticket. ”
But Hostin stands firm, arguing that no amount of money is worth her life and safety: “I still wouldn’t go, even if it were free. First of all, I am very risk averse. I don’t think it’s risk-free. Second, you get off the plane because you have to travel. You get in the car because you have to travel. What for? Are you doing some kind of scientific research? “
Hostin earned another ‘no’ from the panelists, who seemed to have no plausible explanation for space flight. Then Haines began with a seemingly answer.
“That’s to say you can,” she said. “Michael drives a fast car. He’s lived a great, wonderful life, and that means he has to rise even higher. Now you can’t just drive a car, you have to go into space.”
“And he’s a big guy!” Hostin added. “Michael is like, what, 6’3, 6’4? Why did he get into some small spaceship? “
Behar, the former comedian, has another point: he’s too busy and busy to invite Bezos in the first place.
“When will he have time from his 27 jobs?” she joked. “According to them, the reason you want to do it is because you want to see the Earth. I said, take a globe and place it on the other side of the room. Boom! ”
That brought a round of laughter and applause from the audience, who seemed ready to go out and buy a miniature globe after today’s taping.
“You know what’s going to stop people from going?” Goldberg said. “The bathroom situation is interesting.”
The panelists, all of whom were talking to each other at this point, could not form their dissenting opinions quickly enough after this point was brought to the table.
Goldberg said: “You pretty much, I believe, in your pants. “There are all kinds of tunnels and everything.”
While Haines asked about the possibility of using a vacuum cleaner in the bathroom, Anderson suggested Strahan might not even be in space long enough to need a restroom. However, Hostin is still not convinced.
“Michael hasn’t given this much thought,” she said, shaking her head. “He’s a clean weirdo.”
“We knew he was going to have a great time. This is what he wanted to do,” Goldberg said of the discussion. “And I said, keep going Michael! Hope you have a great time without us. ”
To watch airs weekdays on ABC at 11/10c.
