Whoopi Goldberg Deserves a Medal: Watch Her Go Ballistic on Ben Carson for Backing Donald Trump on 'The View'
Former-pediatric neurosurgeon and current Trump-stumper Dr. Ben Carson received a probably-unexpectedly hostile welcome on “The View” Thursday morning.
Goldberg cut through Carson’s bullshit, pressing him to explain his endorsement of “a man who has bashed women, made countless racist remarks.”
“You’re Ben Carson,” she added. “Why would you align yourself with that?”
“There’s no perfect person,” Carson responded before touting Trump’s “insisting” Mar-a-Lago admit “Blacks and Jews” at a time when such integration was a rarity among swanky private clubs.
“I always say that one of the ways that you measure a person is looking at their children,” he continued, essentially saying Trump’s kids are well-behaved relative to other rich kids. “And how do their children act.”
“Well, one’s a big-game hunter,” host Joy Behar interrupted, referring to Donald, Jr. “I’m not thrilled with that.”
“That’s your privilege,” Carson responded.
Halfway through Round 2 of his condemnation of the political “establishment”/”ruling class,” Goldberg spoke her (and, I think, everyone else’s) mind again, telling Carson, “You can say that ’til the cows come home. This guy is … he’s a racist. And he’s not good for the country.”
“You’re Ben Carson,” she added. “You’re so much better than this.”
The Donald rebutted in typical fashion, shooting off a few concurrent fire tweets:
