Intelwars Pepe Le Pew rape culture Space jam 2 The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg rails against Pepé Le Pew critics: ‘Don’t know why you’ve got to erase everything’

Whoopi Goldberg has torn into critics attempting to cancel beloved cartoon character Pepé Le Pew, demanding to know why people have to “erase everything.”

Goldberg’s comments come on the heels of New York Times columnist Charles Blow’s explosive essay accusing the cartoon skunk of perpetuating and “normalizing rape culture.”

The cartoon character will not appear in the upcoming “Space Jam” sequel.

What are the details?

During Tuesday’s broadcast of “The View,” Goldberg and the other co-hosts discussed eBay’s recent announcement that the online marketplace company would stop selling six Dr. Seuss books that were removed from publication for their potential for causing offense with “racist imagery.”

“I just heard that they’re taking Pepé Le Pew out of ‘Space Jam,’ and I think to myself, ‘Couldn’t y’all have just written a couple of lines to say, you know, Pepé doesn’t do that anymore because he knows it’s not OK to jump on other skunks who may not be as interested in him as he is interested?” Goldberg demanded. “I don’t know why you’ve got to erase everything. I don’t get it. I don’t understand it.”

Co-host Joy Behar later fired back, “Well, nobody likes Pepé Le Pew anyway.”

Goldberg responded, “I do! I like Pepé!”

The Hollywood Reporter on Monday noted that the popular Looney Tunes character will not be featured in any current or future TV projects.

What else?

Of the decision to remove Pepé from the new “Space Jam” film, actress Greice Santo — the skunk’s co-star — expressed disappointment that she wouldn’t be able to deliver Pepé’s “comeuppance.”

Through a spokesperson, actress Greice Santo said, “This was such a big deal for Greice to be in this movie. Even though Pepé is a cartoon character, if anyone was going to slap a sexual harasser like him, Greice wished it would be her. Now the scene is cut, and she doesn’t have that power to influence the world through younger generations who’ll be watching ‘Space Jam 2,’ to let younger girls and younger boys know that Pepé’s behavior is unacceptable.”

According to Deadline, the scene in question was as described:

Pepé was set to appear in a black-and-white Casablanca-like Rick’s Cafe sequence. Pepé, playing a bartender, starts hitting on a woman at the bar played by Santo. He begins kissing her arm, which she pulls back, then slamming Pepé into the chair next to hers. She then pours her drink on Pepé, and slaps him hard, sending him spinning in a stool, which is then stopped by LeBron James’ hand. James and Bugs Bunny are looking for Lola, and Pepé knows her whereabouts. Pepé then tells the guys that Penelope cat has filed a restraining order against him. James makes a remark in the script that Pepé can’t grab other Tunes without their consent.

Intelwars Joe biden administration Joy Behar Meghan McCain Questions in advance The View watch WHITE HOUSE Whoopi Goldberg

‘The View’ — surprise, surprise — vigorously defends Biden White House’s desire to get reporters’ questions in advance

It will come as no surprise that nearly all the co-hosts of “The View” vigorously defended the jaw-dropping recent request from President Joe Biden’s communication team to get reporters’ questions in advance of daily press briefings.

What are the details?

It seemed like a big joke to co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who chuckled several times as she opened the discussion on Wednesday’s show and bristled that journalists were “raising red flags about the [chuckle] Biden administration’s promise of total transparency.” She then asked, “Does it occur to anybody they’ve been in probably for three weeks, and they might not [laughs] … have all the answers yet? Call me crazy.”

Co-host Joy Behar naturally concluded the concern from the media is bogus: “First of all, let’s talk about whether they’re actual, specific questions or areas of discussion, and, you know, this type of press conference is not supposed to be gotcha questions; they’re supposed to be informative, information questions and answers — and so it behooves the administration to be prepared to give the correct information.”

Behar added that White House press secretary Jen Psaki “can’t know everything, you know?” and that “the reporters are quite aware of when someone is spinning and when they’re not, and that they would call her out on that, and this administration is very well prepared to say the truth, whereas the last one would just lie and spin and whatever. But you know … I just think that it’s not a gotcha session. That’s what has to be understood.”

Co-host Sara Haines also said the Biden White House’s request for questions in advance wasn’t a concern, emphasizing that it would be “if there was some kind of consequential outcome” for reporters who don’t provide advance questions. She added that “this happens in every administration, and it’s just part of the game.”

While co-host Sunny Hostin said she didn’t like the request for questions in advance, she managed to go on a lengthy breakdown about why it’s actually no big deal since President Donald Trump is finally out of office.

“Let’s face it. I mean, this is a world of difference from what we were dealing with before,” she said. “The last administration was not transparent. It was opaque at the very best. … We’re coming from the Mooch [Anthony Scaramucci], Sarah Huckabee [Sanders], and Kayleigh McEnany! The liar-in-chief … press secretary! So we’re in a whole new world, and so, you know, if the Biden administration has given us — .”

Hostin wasn’t quite able to finish her thought and just settled for, “I think it’s just a breath of fresh air, so the fact that they’re asking for topic areas or even questions, I still think we’re in a much better place in terms of transparency. And isn’t that what we want … from our government?”

But Meghan McCain isn’t having it

As you might expect, co-host Meghan McCain differed from the rest of the panel.

“I’m a Republican,” she began, noting that the idea of the White House asking reporters for questions in advance is “highly un-kosher” and “highly unorthodox.”

“Maybe we are all living in different worlds,” McCain continued, “but I have worked on campaigns, I’ve been around many politicians, I’ve helped politicians — [but] I’ve never once been in a situation where I said, ‘Hey, you as a journalist, can you give me this question for the principal in advance?’ That’s not how it works.”

She then addressed the elephant in the room: “A big part of the problem is that we live in two different worlds of media: We live in the liberal media and the conservative media, and it is known … most journalists are liberal, most journalists are Democrats, most journalists have a liberal bias. It’s just the facts.”

McCain added that there’s journalism school data to back up her points.

Finally, she issued a warning: “If Jen Psaki and people in the Biden administration want to act like this is just gonna be a free for all forever because ‘we’re all finally done with the Trump administration,’ and there’s gonna be a different set of standards … it’s gonna end very badly.”

Georgia runoff election Intelwars Meghan McCain Raphael warnock The View watch Whoopi Goldberg

Angry Whoopi Goldberg slaps down Meghan McCain’s questions for Democratic US Sen.-elect Raphael Warnock — who of course skirted them

Co-host Meghan McCain has been having a tough couple of days on “The View.”

On Monday, the lone conservative voice on the decidedly left-wing TV program was forced to push back against Joy Behar — perhaps the most ardent leftist co-host on the show — over her “dangerous'” rhetoric regarding those who voted for President Donald Trump.

But it got nastier on Wednesday during a segment in which “The View” welcomed with open arms the new U.S. senator-elect from Georgia, the Rev. Raphael Warnock.

What happened?

McCain had no intention of pitching softballs to the far-left Democrat, fresh from his runoff victory Tuesday night — but she did offer him congratulations to start things off.

“I watched your race closely like everyone else, and you talked a lot about unity on the campaign trail and the need to unify the country and unify Georgians,” she continued. “But progressives across the country are celebrating that your election could mean adding two states, eliminating the filibuster, and packing the Supreme Court with more members. Your colleague [Democratic U.S. Sen.] Joe Manchin has joined with Republicans to reject those ideas. [Democratic Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer this morning tweeted ‘buckle up.’ So you could understand how it’s hard for Republicans like to believe in the spirit of unity. And I want to know, will you do the same thing as Joe Manchin and agree not to follow up on all of those things?”

Warnock skirted McCain’s question by replying that he hasn’t been thinking about those issues, and neither are his constituents. But McCain refused to let him grandstand, and she interrupted his attempt to move the goalposts.

“Senator, I do believe that average Americans care about packing the courts, and I just want to know if you would agree and join Joe Manchin and agree that you’re not for that?” McCain continued.

Already a skilled politician, Warnock certainly knows how to avoid giving direct answers — and he warbled on about other issues.

But after he finished, McCain continued to press: “Senator, I understand that. I’m just asking you a direct question. I just wanted to know if you would join—”

Goldberg, however, began speaking while McCain was still asking her question: “Well … actually, I’m going to end this. I get …”

And then she yelled at McCain: “Hey, listen!”

Dialing it back just a tad, Goldberg continued by saying, “We’re gonna say thanks to the Senator-elect, Rev. Raphael Warnock, and we will be right back. Thanks for coming back, sir.”

Warnock smiled and said, “Great to be on ‘The View!'”

Election 2016 Election 2020 Intelwars Leftist rewrite history The View Whoopi Goldberg

WATCH: Whoopi LASHES OUT at Trump supporters: ‘Suck it up like we did’

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said after the election that Trump supporters just need to “suck it up” like the Left did when Donald Trump was elected in 2016.

Whoopi insisted that Hillary Clinton didn’t question or complain about the results of the 2016 and went on to shame Trump supporters who question the legitimacy of the election.

How dare you question it?” she asked.

BlazeTV’s Sara Gonzales, host of “News and Why it Matters,” is sick and tired of the Leftists who “want to rewrite history” with their unrelenting gaslighting tactics.

2016 presidential election 2020 presidential election Biden wins Intelwars Trump wins Videos Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg goes off on ‘The View,’ tells Republicans, Trump supporters to ‘suck it up’: ‘How dare you question’ election results?

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host on “The View,” said that Republicans and conservatives should “suck it up” and accept the preliminary results of the 2020 presidential election — and even cited how “gracious” former secretary of state and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was in 2016 when she lost the election to President Donald Trump.

At the time of this reporting, Trump has refused to concede to Joe Biden and has said that he will be filing various lawsuits against several states’ election results in order to “ensure election laws are fully upheld and the rightful winner is seated.”

What are the details?

Goldberg opened Monday’s airing of the long-running daytime TV show by singing Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.”

Later during one of the segments on the 2020 presidential election, Goldberg accused Trump supporters of overreacting in their desire for a recount in various states across the country, saying that they need to “suck it up” and accept the preliminary results showing a victory for former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Now, I just want to bring something up right now,” she said. “I want to say to all those people who don’t believe that Americans actually got out and voted, let me say this to you: When you knew who was elected four years ago, Hillary Clinton didn’t say ‘Hey, wait a minute, this doesn’t feel right, stop the count.’ She didn’t say, ‘This isn’t right, I’m not going for it.’ She didn’t say any of that. So, all of you, suck it up. Suck it up like we sucked it up.”

She continued, “And if you’re not sure that you’re comfortable with Joe Biden, do what we did: Find things and then take it to the law and if the law says it’s something to look at, look at it. But from now on, suck it up.”

Goldberg added, “Grow the pair for [Trump] that he can’t grow for himself, because this is ridiculous, you’re not sure that he won. You’re bringing into question all these Americans who voted legally, came out and stood and voted. How dare you question it?”

What else?

It seems fair to point out that many Democrats lost their minds and went into meltdown mode following Trump’s 2016 election — and while former Democratic nominee Clinton did concede after the 2016 election results, she repeatedly obsessed over the loss for months and months following the Nov. 2016 shutout.

In the days following the 2016 presidential election, demonstrations and riots broke out across the country.

The New York Times reported, “On campuses nationwide, students marched against Mr. Trump with signs bearing slogans like ‘Not my president,’ and protesters in Oakland, Calif., smashed windows and set fire to garbage bins. On Wednesday night, thousands of people protested in several cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle and New York, where demonstrators converged in Midtown Manhattan in front of Trump Tower, the home of the president-elect.”

Some voters even suggested that the Electoral College should refuse to elect Trump at the time.

In 2017, Clinton herself wrote a book titled “What Happened,” which pondered the many failures on her part that led to the stunning defeat. In the book, she admitted to going to the woods nearby her New York home and screaming in horror. That same year, she also admitted that she’d watch news coverage on Trump’s policymaking and international dealings and ask herself what she’d do instead, if she were president.

“Losing is my biggest regret,” she told NPR at the time. “And losing to someone who was not qualified and did not have the experience or the temperament to be president of the United States. That is my biggest regret.”

That same year, the former secretary of state also said that she wouldn’t rule out contesting the legitimacy of the 2016 election.

According to a Politico report, she “refused to rule out challenging the legitimacy of last year’s presidential election … though she said such a move would be unprecedented and legally questionable.”

“I don’t know if there’s any legal constitutional way to do that. I think you can raise questions,” Clinton told NPR’s Terry Gross during an interview.

Following her interview with Gross, a Clinton spokesperson clarified the former secretary of state’s remark, saying, “Secretary Clinton has said repeatedly the results of the election are over but we have to learn what happened. I would hope anyone in America concerned about the integrity of our democracy would feel the same way if we got there. But we’re not. Right now Bob Mueller and several congressional committees are investigating to what extent the Russians impacted our election and who exactly helped them do so.”

Auto zones Daytime tv Domestic terrorist Intelwars Joy Behar President Donald Trump The View Whoopi Goldberg

Joy Behar loses it and calls President Trump a ‘domestic terrorist’ — Whoopi has to talk her down from the ledge

Joy Behar, liberal co-host on “The View,” referred to President Donald Trump as a “domestic terrorist” during Thursday’s airing of the hit daytime TV show.

Fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg, however, reined in Behar and said that she surely couldn’t mean such a thing.

What are the details?

The popular panel of women on Thursday discussed the protests in Seattle, which took center stage in this week’s news. At one point this week, demonstrators took over Seattle’s City Hall, and later declared one area neighborhood — “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or CHAZ — as a police-free autonomous zone.

Trump railed against Washington state’s government about how it has been handling protesters and rioters, and specifically this week, referred to people who have “taken over Seattle” as “domestic terrorists.”

“[Trump] doesn’t help anything,” Behar spat. “As a matter of fact, he has the nerve to call anybody a domestic terrorist. He’s the domestic terrorist. He’s the one who’s been impeached for obstructing justice in this country.”

She wasn’t done there.

“He’s worried about the people in Seattle? By the way — if he wants to do something in Seattle, somebody better show him where it is on the map. I doubt he even knows where it is. Get back in your bunker. Get back in the bunker,” she ranted.

What did Whoopi do next?

Goldberg, seemingly taken aback by Behar’s remarks, attempted to bring the train back onto the tracks.

“Joy, I need you to clear up one thing: You were not calling the president a domestic terrorist. You were just saying that his take on this is a little crazier than you thought, is that right?” Goldberg prompted.

Clearly frustrated by having to discuss the president in a rational manner, Behar groused, “Um, yeah. I guess. I mean, I’m not calling anybody names like he does. It’s just that it seems ironic that he would be calling people domestic terrorists. I mean, I’ll get in trouble for calling him a domestic terrorist, [but] he won’t get in trouble for calling innocent people domestic terrorists.”

Behar relented, however, and said that she misspoke.

“That’s the irony of the situation,” she complained. “So I take it back. I take it back.”

George floyd protests Intelwars Looting and rioting Police police brutality Protests Video Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg takes on and shames rioters and looters who are exploiting the George Floyd protests: ‘You’ve destroyed too many people’s dreams around the country’

In the middle of a thoughtful Instagram
post about the ongoing protests following the death of George Floyd, Whoopi Goldberg stopped to clearly tell looters who are taking advantage of peaceful protests to knock it off and understand how their actions are hurting people — including people they care about.

What did she say about looters?

The liberal actress and co-host of “The View” recorded and posted a video message Wednesday offering her take on the protests and the progress that’s going on in America in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of four Minneapolis cops.

In it, Goldberg said that folks are “being forced to look at something” that they’ve felt they were already able to see. But now that feeling is “different.” She lauded the fact that all sorts of people who aren’t black are peacefully taking to the streets to say “enough is enough” and experiencing the “response that they’re getting.” She noted that “parents — moms and dads — are walking with their kids.”

Then she paused and spoke directly to the looters and rioters who have been committing violence and destruction in cities nationwide.

And she was very clear that the criminality had to come to an end: They have “destroyed” too many dreams and lives and are putting their own families in danger.

“All you looters, you need to stop,” she said. “Because you’ve destroyed too many people’s dreams around the country. You have made it impossible for a lot of people to get back to their lives.

“I’m just saying, all you looters,” she continued, “just know your grandmother, your mother’s mother, your brother’s sister, your cousin’s baby can’t get their medication because you burned down the pharmacy, or you burned down the bus stop.”

What else did she say?

After scolding the looters, Goldberg offered her take on how the country might reconsider the process of handing out badges. She added that knowing cops’ state of mind and forcing them to talk about what they’re facing is a good thing — not something that should be ignored.

“I’m just saying, maybe better background checks on the people who want to become police officers. Because, you know, that a big job to hand somebody a gun,” she said. “So I would rather know that their state of mind is good and force this idea of having to talk to somebody about it.”

And she was sympathetic to cops and the stress that comes with their duties, noting that the nation is seeing good things happen when police and the people talk about those stresses.

“There’s nothing wrong with realizing you’re overwhelmed. I can’t imagine that cops on the front line right now are not overwhelmed,” she said. “But they’re talking to each other and they’re talking to the demonstrators. And they’re saying the things that people need to hear, like, ‘What happened in Minnesota was unconscionable and we don’t want to be that to you. We don’t ever want to be that to you. Let us start this conversation.'”

Those kinds of conversations are what will lead to actual change where it’s needed because everyday citizens who are new to the discussions are beginning to understand, she said.

“That’s meaningful change, because when the police recognize that there’s a problem, we’ll be able to change it,” Goldberg said. “And now, people are saying, ‘We see it. I hear it. I understand it.'”

Meghan McCain said that she would refuse to co-host “The View” with Elisabeth Hasselbeck because of her comments telling people to pray against the coronavirus pandemic.

McCain made the comments on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“Somebody actually sent me a screenshot of my face when she said that,” McCain said to Cohen.

“I took this virus seriously from the very beginning, and I thought a lot of this rhetoric was really dangerous. I think it’s really, really unfortunate and dangerous that she said that,” she added.

Hasselbeck had returned to the show in early March and commented that people needed to pray against the coronavirus in addition to taking personal precautions.

“I think there can be a fine line between what is precaution, what is taking precaution, and what is panic,” said Hasselbeck on the previous show. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows. We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it stops in its tracks.”

McCain can be seen in the video grimacing at Hasselbeck’s comment.

Later McCain accused her of putting out misinformation about coronavirus.

“I don’t need to co-host with her again, and it’s unfortunate, because I’ve been a huge fan for a long time,” McCain said. “Anybody who is screwing around with this virus and putting out sort of misinformation, I don’t really have a lot of time for right now.”

There are nearly 900,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., with more than 50,000 deaths.

‘The View’s’ Joy Behar tries to get Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom to blast Trump — but he hits back with only praise for the president

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) appeared on “The View” Friday, where he sang President Donald Trump’s praises over the COVID-19 outbreak.

What are the details?

During an exchange about coronavirus in the U.S., co-host Joy Behar asked if Newsom was sucking up to President Trump in order to avoid retribution.

Newsom, however, lauded the president’s efforts as “proactive” and refused to say anything negative about him.

“Governor, it’s no secret that you’ve had a combative relationship with Trump in the past, but lately, you’ve been praising him for the help he’s giving,” Behar said. “Of course, you have to, because look at how he treats governors who don’t kiss the ring. The governor of Washington, the governor of Michigan, he said they were not appreciative and told Mike Pence, ‘Don’t call them back.’ Do you feel like you have to feed this guy’s ego to get the respirators, to get the PPEs? Is that what’s going on?”

Newsom admitted that he’s had issues with the president in the past and has had differences of opinion as well.

“Let me just acknowledge the frame of your question,” he responded. “We’re involved in over 68 lawsuits with the Trump administration, and so there’s no question we have had our differences of opinion on many issues, but I just want to remind you that you and many others that maybe are not aware of this.

“We have been at this since late January. California got a head start in many respects, where no one was really paying much attention. We started working with the administration directly to get these repatriated flights from mainland China into the state of California. Many states turned their back on those flights and those repatriation missions. California embraced them,” he continued.

“We also had that Grand Princess, that large cruise ship, where we worked very collaboratively with the federal government and developed strong relationships of trust with emergency planning and how we can bring those passengers back into our diverse communities and all across the rest of the country,” he added.

“As a consequence of that, our relationship began earlier than most. And so from that perspective, all I can say is that, from my perspective, the relationship has been strong,” Newsom noted. “I’m not doing it to kiss the ring — I’m not doing it in a way, you know, I’m just being forthright with the president. He returns calls, he reaches out, he’s been proactive.”

Newsom concluded, “We got that Mercy ship down here in Los Angeles. That was directly because he sent it down here. Two thousand medical units came to the state of California, these FMS, these field medical stations. That’s been very, very helpful, and to the extent, we’re going to need more, and I’ll let you know in a few weeks if that relationship continues.”

Sunny Hostin tries to bait Mark Cuban into Trump-bashing while on ‘The View’ — but Cuban won’t do it: ‘I’m not gonna throw him under the bus’

Sunny Hostin, co-host on “The View,” attempted to bait billionaire Mark Cuban three times into attacking President Donald Trump over his COVID-19 response.

Three times, Cuban refused.

What are the details?

Cuban appeared via video on Tuesday’s broadcast to discuss the coronavirus pandemic gripping the U.S. and the rest of the world.

“You know, in January, though, experts were raising the alarm about the coronavirus to President Trump, and some say that his refusal to respond quickly, efficiently, appropriately enough cost lives, American lives,” she said. “What are your thoughts about his leadership during the pandemic?”

Cuban responded by saying he believed the president was doing the best of his ability.

“You know,” he began, “I’m not a fan of President Trump, but I’m not going to rip on him either, because any senator could have stood up and said something and screamed loud. Any congressperson could have. I mean, nobody did. I didn’t have high expectations from President Trump, but I’m not going to throw him under the bus.”

When it was clear that Hostin wasn’t getting what she was looking for, she attempted a more direct approach.

“Trump’s approval ratings match his all-time high — 49% — the highest mark since he’s been in office,” she said. “Are we underestimating how Americans are viewing his handling of this crisis?”

Cuban was unmoved.

“No,” he responded. “You know, he’s doing the best he can, and here’s what I’ll say, and I’m not a fan of his, but what’s real is real. When you have imperfect information, you make imperfect decisions. We’re not in a ready, aim, fire mode. That makes it tough. No matter what he did, it’s going to be wrong for some people.”

Hostin, determined, attempted one last time to encourage Cuban to attack Trump.

“Mark, you know, many people are calling Governor Cuomo ‘President Cuomo’ at this point for the way he’s leading New York state during this pandemic, but President Trump berated him saying, he needs to do more … Is this how President Trump should be spending his time?” she asked. “Criticizing the governor of one of the hardest hit states?”

Although he agreed personal attacks were unnecessary, Cuban reiterated a third time that he would not take the bait.

“There’s no good reason just to rip on, you know, I’m ripping on politicians generically, but the decisions that have been made particularly from the president, he is who he is. I’m not just going to stand around and tear him apart,” Cuban insisted. “President Trump can tweet about whatever he wants. I’m looking to see people doing work, and are we trying to solve things coming out of the government? Yes, we are. That’s what I focus on.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Daytime tv Intelwars President Donald Trump The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg suggests it’s the Trump administration’s fault that Americans are under quarantine

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host on “The View,” said that U.S. citizens would not be stuck in their homes under self-quarantine if America had decent leadership.

What are the details?

During the show’s Friday broadcast, Goldberg said that a lack of leadership all but guaranteed Americans would be under lock and key in their homes to wait out the COVID-19 pandemic.

Co-host Sunny Hostin, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, insisted that Americans were under fire because they were caught unaware. She explained that Americans were not on guard because their president insisted that COVID-19 was a “hoax” — a suggestion that the president has vehemently denied.

In February, the president, instead, said that Democrats were politicizing the coronavirus outbreak and weaponizing it against his administration. For his part, Trump simply insisted that Democrats’ criticism of his administration’s response to it was a hoax in itself.

Here’s what he said at the time (emphasis added):

Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know that, right? Coronavirus. They’re politicizing it. We did one of the great jobs. You say, ‘How’s President Trump doing?’ They go, ‘Oh, not good, not good.’ They have no clue. They don’t have any clue. They can’t even count their votes in Iowa, they can’t even count. No they can’t. They can’t count their votes.

One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia. That didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. That was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything, they tried it over and over, they’ve been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning, they lost, it’s all turning. Think of it. Think of it. And this is their new hoax. But you know, we did something that’s been pretty amazing. We’re 15 people [cases of coronavirus infection] in this massive country. And because of the fact that we went early, we went early, we could have had a lot more than that.

What else?

“[Americans] listened to the president, who called it a hoax,” Hostin insisted. “There are lives at stake.”

Goldberg then went on to put the blame squarely on “leadership.”

“The interesting thing about all of this is whatever channel you’re watching, you’re still watching from home,” she began. “You’re watching from inside your house. Because a pandemic has happened, and you are stuck, and whatever side you’re on, you understand that when you have leadership you would not be — you would not be stuck in your house.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Mother Nature pandemics The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

‘The View’s’ Whoopi Goldberg demands Americans stop calling COVID-19 a ‘Chinese virus.’ Meghan McCain isn’t having any of it.

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host on “The View,” said that people need to stop referring to COVID-19 as a Chinese virus, and insisted that the pandemic is not on the Chinese country’s shoulders — but on that of Mother Nature.

Co-host Meghan McCain, however, hit back hard with a fiery response.

What are the details?

Goldberg made the demand during a Wednesday segment on the ABC show.

“We need to stop calling it — or labeling it — it’s like [China] did it to us,” Goldberg said. “Mother Nature really did it to us.”

Goldberg pointed out President Donald Trump’s statement that Chinese officials reportedly blamed the U.S. for the virus, saying that the military brought the virus to the Wuhan region of China.

“Clearly [Trump] is trying to pin the blame on China, but I don’t recall hearing … China say the military gave it to them,” she insisted. “All I remember is seeing lots of people trying to quell this pandemic.”

Goldberg continued by claiming that Trump simply “makes things up.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in, “I don’t think when the swine flu … originated here in the United States, we didn’t hear people saying, ‘This is the American swine flu.'”

Co-host Megan McCain, however, disagreed with her fellow panelists, and said that she had no issue referring to COVID-19 as a Chinese virus.

“I don’t have a problem with people calling it whatever they want,” she insisted. “It’s a deadly virus that did originate in Wuhan [China]. I don’t have a problem with it. And I think that China — had they acted right away, and we had more access to information, maybe it wouldn’t have gotten to the place where it is.”

Putting things in perspective, McCain added, “We have the luxury right now to be arguing about verbiage versus people that are actually dying and on ventilators.”

Alexandria ocasio-cortez AOC Daytime tv Democratic socialist Intelwars The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

AOC appears on ‘The View’ where not even Whoopi Goldberg likes her message about older Democrats — and makes her feelings clear

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) appeared on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The View,” where she discussed her respect for her elder Democratic lawmakers.

One person who didn’t seem to be too impressed was co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who chastised the freshman lawmaker for her perceived ageism against more senior lawmakers in Washington, D.C., such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Ocasio-Cortez has also attacked Pelosi’s policies, which reportedly prompted some House Democrats to call the New York congresswoman a “fraud” and a “nobody.”

What are the details?

Goldberg opened by admitting that she was “very happy” when Ocasio-Cortez was elected because she believed that the young lawmaker could easily effect change.

“I was very happy when you were elected, because I thought it was a great step in a good direction,” Goldberg said. “And then, you lost me because it felt like you were saying to people like me that I was too old and didn’t do enough.”

She continued, “And so, that has bothered me, because I feel like I love young people. I was once one. But you’re on my shoulders. And we have carried this fight. People like Nancy Pelosi, who was the only chick in the room for years. … And to sort of hear it sound like you were dismissing us bothered the hell out of me. And I’ve been very upset about it for a long time.”

Ocasio-Cortez bristled and insisted that she has great respect for some senior lawmakers such as Democratic Reps. Barbara Lee (Calif.), Maxine Walters (Calif.), and the late Elijah Cummings (Md).

“I appreciate you sharing that with me, because I think that’s something we have to model more in politics,” she answered. “Nancy Pelosi, that’s Mama Bear of the Democratic Party. You don’t mess with her. Also, women like Barbara Lee … and Maxine Waters.”

“Cool,” Goldberg quipped, seemingly unimpressed.

2020 presidential election Democratic debates Intelwars Joy Behar Meghan McCain Michael Bloomberg The View Whoopi Goldberg

Sparks fly on ‘The View’ after Meghan McCain blasts Joy Behar: ‘You guys have done a p***-poor job of convincing me that I should vote for a Democrat’

Co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar squared off on “The View” Tuesday over whether former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would make a good Democratic presidential nominee against President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

The co-hosts discussed the news that Bloomberg will be in Las Vegas on Wednesday for his first Democratic presidential debate.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg pointed out that Bloomberg will likely take fire for controversial statements and stances that have emerged over the last week.

McCain added that Bloomberg clinching the nomination is hardly a sure bet, and insisted that it will be “a lot harder” than what his team might think.

Clearly disturbed her fellow co-hosts’ critical remarks against Bloomberg, Behar spat, “[I]f we keep taking the Democrats down, Trump is going to win.”

McCain fired back, “If Democrats don’t take [Bloomberg] out, Republicans will. … You want to go up against Trump and you want to take the moral high ground, I don’t know if [Bloomberg] is going to be the guy.

“I’m supposed to give Bloomberg a pass? Not on this show,” she added.

‘Who are you voting for?’

Behar, apparently taken aback by McCain’s disdain for Bloomberg, demanded, “I would like to know who you are going to vote for. Who are you voting for?”

McCain responded by pointing out her vote was none of Behar’s business.

“Who I vote for is none of your business,” McCain quipped, “but I am not voting for Trump and I sure as hell am not voting for Bloomberg.”

Behar took it as McCain wouldn’t be voting.

“So you’re not going to vote. So you’re not going to vote,” Behar griped. “You’re not voting for Trump and you’re not voting for a Democrat. You said that already.”

McCain, undaunted, fired back, “[Y]ou guys have done a p***-poor job of convincing me to vote for a Democrat.”
