It all started on Monday, November 7, when the series’ leading ladies began dissecting the potential reasons behind former President Donald Trump’s support for former foe Florida Senator Marco Rubio ahead of his midterm re-election bid.

"He's supporting Marco Rubio, who he used to call Little Marco,” explained host Ana Navarro of 45's seemingly shifting loyalties.

"I thought Trump was the one with the small hands,” interjected fellow host Sunny Hostin, seemingly referencing the breadth of memes poking fun at the previous POTUS’ alleged small hands.

Though fellow panelist Sara Haines interjected that the Florida lawmaker “was Small Hands Rubio," it seems Navarro had another idea.

"Maybe they all got small hands," she quipped.

Yet as the camera panned back to Navarro, the EGOT-winning actress put her comedy chops to the test, evidently making gestures that prompted giggles from both her costars and audience members alike.

"I'm sorry. I'm sorry," the Sister Act icon said quietly before flashing a sheepish smile.

"Bad Whoopi!" the CNN commentator cracked back with a laugh.

This is far from the only time Goldberg has shown off her comedic timing. Last week, the star made headlines after making a joke about spicy videos during a panel discussion about the role of pornography in society.

“We need to teach young people,” explained actress Elizabeth Banks, who appeared as a guest during the recent episode. “Give them as much information as possible, so that they’re empowered to make positive decisions about their relationships going forward."

"And to recognize sex acting in porn as not being real,” Goldberg added.

"That’s not how it really goes! Nobody can take that much pounding!” she continued, garnering chuckles and applause from the audience.

The Sun reported on Goldberg’s hilarious behind-the-scenes antics.
