Whoopi Goldberg has been constantly bashing Donald Trump on her struggling ABC talk show The View ever since before he was inaugurated. On Wednesday’s show, Whoopi once again launched into a foul rant against the president, but it didn’t take long for her to learn that she’d made a huge mistake.
Raw Story reported that the women of The View were discussing claims made by Republicans that liberal activist groups are paying people to cause trouble at town halls for GOP congressman. Even though there’s evidence to support these claims, Whoopi refused to hear it.
“People are not paid to do this,” she barked. “People are pissed off!”
“I think there’s a lot of pressure in D.C. right now considering [Donald] Trump is technically a Republican and he’s overseeing this party,” said co-host Sara Haines. “Right now people are feeling the pressure in D.C. to give in, pass people, do all of this stuff. These are the people that are going to vote them back in or not. I think it’s a good a real reminder that at the end of the day, their power comes from those votes.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed, saying she was surprised that GOP politicians still say Obamacare was a bad thing even though it’s popular with the people.
“If Obamacare was really that popular with people, Hillary Clinton would be president right now,” said conservative cohost Jedediah Bila.
“No, no, no,” Whoopi rudely interrupted.
“This has nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act,” Whoopi said. “A lot of what’s happened with the insurance companies is that the insurance companies don’t want to deal with this. So, we’re going to punish you, so you’re forced to move this. Now, here’s my suggestion, because it works for a lot of people, there has to be a way, as with everything, that you use stuff that works and move what doesn’t – but to come in and sweep everything out seems very crazy to me.”
Unfortunately for Whoopi, Twitter users did not agree with her.
