During Thursday’s episode of “The View,” host Whoopi Goldberg falsely claimed that President Donald Trump is “doing nothing” about the coronavirus pandemic. She also once again blamed him for American COVID-19 deaths, saying that “blood is on his hands.”
“The View” cohost Sara Haines kicked things off before Goldberg let loose on her latest vile rant.
“This virus has been hijacked as a political message, and that’s the problem,” Haines said. “Straight out of the gates, the president, current president, President Trump, and the administration turned this into a political message.”
“The refusing to wear a mask became a rallying cry, and they leaned into it flagrantly disregarding all the science, and I think the other thing is the mask-wearing, you know like this was always a three-part action plan,” she added. “It was wear your mask, socially distance, and wash your hands. it was always the three of those together, and it wasn’t going to 100% eliminate the virus, but it was our best weapon, and that’s straight from doctors and scientists.”
That’s when Goldberg came completely unglued:
“It’s willful ignorance. I’m sorry. You know, at some point, you know what you are looking at. He did not win. He lost. No amount of hand wringing or praying to the Lord to say, Lord, make him —it’s not going to happen. It’s not going to happen. 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. He’s doing nothing, and he knows what he needs to do, and he’s not doing it, and neither are these Republicans.
I don’t know when America turned into this particular version of America, but I got to tell you I don’t like it. 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.”

Of course, the notion that Trump is “doing nothing” about the coronavirus pandemic is completely false. At the end of last month, the White House released a full report detailing the steps that Trump has taken to battle COVID-19, allegedly saving over two million lives in the process. For Goldberg and the rest of the liberal media to continue to push the fake narrative that Trump is literally doing nothing to fight this pandemic is a new low for them all.
