“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday said a possible Donald Trump presidency signals that “maybe it’s time” for her to move out of the country.
Ms. Goldberg was responding to a claim by fellow co-host Joy Behar that the Republican presidential front-runner “has a lot of Democratic tendencies, if you look at his record.”
“Listen, he can be whatever party he wants to be,” Ms. Goldberg interjected, according to a clip obtained by Breitbart News. “What he can’t be is he can’t be the guy that says it’s your fault stuff isn’t working. That’s not the president I want. Find a way to make stuff work.”
“But you can’t say, ‘Oh, you’re Lebanese or you’re black or you’re Mexican or you’re a woman.’ Stop blaming everybody. Let’s fix the crap. Let’s just fix it,” she continued. “And if you can fix it, I will listen to what you have to say. The minute you start pointing and saying that person is a rapist and a murderer, it pisses me off because I’ve been part of that when they just use a blanket statement to talk about black people or when they use a blanket statement to talk about white people or women or any other group.
“I don’t think that’s America. I don’t want it to be America. Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know,” she added.
“Don’t say that,” Ms. Behar warned.
“Listen, I can afford to go,” Ms. Goldberg said, adding that she didn’t know where she would go if she chose to leave.
