“Looks like you both had a great time,” Goldberg, 67, noted without mentioning any blunder on Grant’s red carpet with Graham, 35.
A representative for “The View” didn’t immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment as to why he avoided the topic altogether.
On Sunday night, Graham — who was one of the ABC’s red carpet hosts — asked Grant a series of questions he clearly had no interest in answering.
For example, the host of the “Pretty Big Deal” podcast asked the “Love Actually” star if he was rooting for any candidate, and he calmly replied, “No one in particular.”
