One of the liberal co-hosts  of “The View” admitted Wednesday that she has set up a “safe room” for Thanksgiving this year so political talk doesn’t “mess up the vibe.”

The comment came during a panel discussion about the kinds of questions a person might face during Thanksgiving dinner, such as the NFL national anthem protests and President Donald Trump. (RELATED: ‘The View’ Quickly’ Pivots From Talking Franken To Attacking Trump)

“Millions of Americans will be around the table for Thanksgiving tomorrow and the conversation can go south in a hurry,” Whoopi Goldberg explained. “The website Mashable lists the worst questions you’ll be hearing are like, ‘So, you’re still single’ and ‘I don’t think the NFL players should kneel. What do you think?'”

“What about Roy Moore, is he coming up too,” Joy Behar interjected.

“‘Do you think Roy moore did it?”” Sarah Haines responded. “‘Why would someone wait decades to say it now?’ I feel like you should start light like, ‘how’s the turkey?”

“It never starts out light at my house,” Sunny Hostin shared, as she mentioned there will be people at her house who voted for Trump. “I’ve already warned my mother no political talk, that’s not going to happen. So, I have a safe room actually in my house.”

“I have a room and I’m like if people are getting into these kinds of discussions just take it into the room. That way it is one on way and it doesn’t mess up the vibe of Thanksgiving,” Hostin added. “Because it’s supposed to be family and friends getting together.”
