"This gives me the heebie-jeebies can I just tell you? It is so creepy and so disgusting," guest host Ana Navarro-Cárdenas said. She went on to question why the Texas Senator was "doing a podcast" and "spending so much time trolling on Twitter".
However, Sunny Hostin reminded her co-hosts and the audience that Cruz did defend his wife by calling Trump a 'sniveling coward' and 'real men do not attack women'.
"If that's the case I don't understand why he's talking about a women's looks," Hostin said and added that she does not understand why the Senator has a podcast.
In response to the comments, Cruz quote-tweeted the clip of the women speaking and wrote, "Noted experts on sex appeal Whoopi Goldberg & Ana Navarro say I’m “creepy” & “disgusting.” I’m OK w/ that. Not my target audience! They’re also really pissed that my chart-topping podcast #Verdict has had over 40m downloads. Check it out for yourself: https://verdictpodcast.com."
"By the way, the reason women like Pete Davidson is because he is funny," Joy Behar added.
