Whoopi Goldberg quotes “Ghost” while criticizing presidential candidates: 'You in danger, girl'

Sara Haines collapsed onto the Hot Topics table in ecstasy after Goldberg invoked an iconic line from her movie while slamming power-hungry politicians.

Molly is no longer the only one in danger — at least according to Whoopi Goldberg.

The View moderator and EGOT-winning actress invoked an iconic quote from psychic Oda Mae Brown, her character in the 1990 film Ghost, as she criticized candidates in the 2024 presidential race on the talk show on Wednesday.

The moment came as the 68-year-old star discussed her issues with those vying for the presidency after cohost Alyssa Farah Griffin spoke in support of conservative Republican candidate Nikki Haley.

"I want whoever’s going to stand for us, the American people. I don’t mind Republican, Democrat — I don’t mind it because it gives us an argument," Goldberg said.

"But when you’re not taking us into consideration and it’s about holding onto power, you’re a danger, all of you," Goldberg continued, clarifying that she meant politicians in general and not specifically Griffin or her party.

Shortly after, she connected the dots and turned the statement into a Ghost reference. "You in danger, girl!" Goldberg quipped, which prompted cohost Sara Haines to look to the sky and shout, "Yes!" before collapsing in ecstasy onto Goldberg's shoulder.

The studio audience applauded before Goldberg continued, speaking about Haley's qualifications.

"That's my biggest concern, because when you're talking about women’s stuff, I need her to be specific. I need to know where she stands on education, because we have a lot to rebalance in this country. I don’t mind that she’s a Republican, but I need to know where she stands," Goldberg said, while Joy Behar noted that Haley is a "political animal" who "goes where the wind blows."

Griffin finished the exchange by reiterating that "anyone is safer than [Donald Trump] being in office," again criticizing her former boss, for whom she worked as part of the White House communications team in 2020.

Outside of her work on The View, which she joined in 2007, Goldberg won an Oscar in 1991 for her performance in Ghost, Jerry Zucker's romantic drama about a woman, Molly (Demi Moore), who enlists Brown (Goldberg) to help her communicate with her murdered boyfriend, Sam (Patrick Swayze).

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
