Whoopi Goldberg surprised to be hosting Dalai Lama’s World Peace conference

Greeted by a roaring applause from an audience shocked to hear her name, “The View” TV talk show’s host, Whoopi Goldberg, headlined the World Peace Talk with the Dalai Lama Saturday at the U.S. Capitol lawn.

Before introducing the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet to the crowd, Goldberg said she was surprised to receive an invitation to the event. Goldberg told the audience her response to the invite was, “Are you sure? You know what I do, right?” Goldberg said. “I just wanted to warn them some of the kind of thing(s) I did.”

As the eager crowd wound down its clapping for the television pundit—an applause that rivaled the Dalai Lama’s entrance—she expressed pleasure in attending an event that exuded peace.
