(ABC)

On Wednesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Roy Moore losing the Alabama special election. Watch the video below.

The people of Alabama went to the polls on Tuesday to vote on the Senate seat left vacant when Jeff Sessions became Donald Trump’s attorney general. Even though multiple people accused Republican Moore of being a pedophile, the president still endorsed him over Democrat Doug Jones. But Jones won, and now the panelists on the ABC talk show, all of whom were against Moore, are the latest stars to celebrate the outcome.

Whoopi Goldberg began by saying, “Hey Alabama, thank you! Thank you!” She then wondered, “Was this a message to the White House? Was it a message to Bannon? What happened last night?” Sunny Hostin brought up a tweet Meghan McCain sent Tuesday night that stated, “Suck it, Bannon!” The conservative commentator amusingly admitted she now wanted to get t-shirts made with that slogan.

She went on to say, “I didn’t see this one coming at all. [Jones] won by a very small margin. But a win is a win is a win. Bannon is now neutered… It show there actually is a moral compass.” Hostin also pointed out the high volume of black women that helped propel Jones to victory, prompting Joy Behar to declare, “Yet again, black women are saving the country. This is the second time.”

Hostin then argued, “It’s significant, because we often talk about this unheard population of the rurual white voters and how do you get that vote? And now I think the conversation has to change. How do you support the black female vote? How do you support that?” Still, she wanted to know, “Why did an overwhelming amount of white educated women vote for Roy Moore?”

Goldberg didn’t directly answer that, but expressed her belief that a lot of other Moore supporters switched their allegiance at the last minute, particularly after his wife made comments about Jews. “I think a lot of people said we’re gonna do it and a lot of people [then] decided we’re not gonna do it, because that’s not how anybody wants to be shown,” the moderator said.
