Whoopi Goldberg is claiming that President Donald Trump is “sitting around doing nothing” even as coronavirus cases continue to rise.
Goldberg argued on ABC’s “The View” that Trump was not doing anything to help Americans who were suffering, saying, “I’ve never seen a president that didn’t care whether people lived or died.”
Sunny Hostin began the segment by noting that, since the election, President Trump has been making claims about voter fraud and a stolen election — and that a number of his supporters appear to have been convinced that he is right.
“I was reading yesterday that 50% of Republicans, at least half believe that Donald Trump — that there was rampant voter fraud and Donald Trump really did win the election,” she said. “So that’s kind of — it’s not shocking, but if they believe that, they also believe everything that is coming out of this administration, and it’s just been lie upon lie upon lie, and it’s led to — to more and more death.”
Goldberg jumped in then, saying that Trump’s refusal to accept the results of the election amounted to “willful ignorance,” adding, “He lost. He lost this election, and because he lost all those people who now have the virus who don’t make it from now until January 20th, this blood is on his hands because this isn’t like he’s sitting around thinking, how can I help? He’s sitting around doing nothing.”
Goldberg concluded by saying that it wasn’t just Trump but other Republicans as well.
“I don’t know when America turned into this particular version of America, but I got to tell you I don’t like it,” she said. “I’ve always had, you know, we’ve always had conversations that we don’t agree with people, but I’ve never been — I’ve never seen a president that didn’t care whether people lived or died, and it’s very clear.”
This is par for the course with the left-wing nutjobs at The View.
Last week, co-host Joy Behar said President Trump and members of his administration should be charged with “crimes against humanity” because of its immigration policy and vowed to not “be a part of a country” that separates children from their parents.
The panel discussed last week’s final presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, where they sparred over immigration policy.
Trump attacked Biden for the Obama-Biden administration’s “catch-and-release” policy, in which illegal immigrants were allowed to walk free ahead of their court dates after being arrested for being in the country illegally.
“Parents … kids were ripped from their arms and they were separated … those kids are alone, nowhere to go,” Biden said of the policy at the debate.
When asked for her thoughts on the debate, Behar told a story about her time as a young mother when her 4-year-old daughter went missing for 20 minutes at the Bronx Zoo — a memory that she said still haunts her to this day.
“So last night, the thing that stood out for me was Joe Biden talking about those kids at the border,” Behar said. “I mean, is this the country we want? What kind of country do we want?”
“I, as an American, disavow all of it. I disavow this entire administration, Stephen Miller, Rod Rosenstein, Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump need to be brought up on charges for crimes against humanity… this is a crime against humanity,” Behar said. “I will not stay in a country, or be a part of a country that does something like that to children. It’s outrageous.”
Earlier in the “The View,” Sara Haines said the debate went “well” and credited both the mute button and the moderator for its success before trashing Trump.
“These new rules that were applied, but also Kristen Welker did an amazing job, having those mics muted helped actually being able to hear some substance, or at least… giving them enough rope to unanswer, dodge or do what they do,” Haines said, before listing the “annoying” parts of the debate.
“I can’t stand when Donald Trump talks about Joe Biden’s 47 years in service as a Senator, because a Senator cannot affect the change, he’s equivocating,” Haines said. “Also, he’ll say, ‘You spent eight years as a vice president,’ he keeps dodging the fact that he’s been in office for four years… and hasn’t done anything.”
