On Monday’s episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg launched a truly vile attack on the Republican Party, claiming that the GOP “doesn’t care if you drop dead because you can’t breathe.”
While talking about COVID-19, Goldberg referred to President Donald Trump when she said, “He wants credit for having this happen during his watch. He says to historians, ‘Please remember these great discoveries which will end the plague all took place on my watch.’ Should we also remind him how many people died between January and March when he did absolutely nothing on his watch and said it didn’t exist and that it would be gone in a couple of days?”
“These people who defy the protocols are going to be in a pickle when they get sick, and nobody is in the emergency room,” chimed in the radically liberal Joy Behar. “When they have an appendicitis attack or their children get sick, no one will be there for them. They need to think about that. There are increased delays in cancer diagnoses going on, and Republicans in Congress do not care about it because all they care about right now is power, retaining it, and nothing will change until the Georgia election. All eyes are on the Georgia election.”
“Well, you’ve kind of got to think if you are a Republican, you would say to yourself, hey we better get our act together, so the people who are coming in to revote don’t look at us and say, well, they’re the do-nothing party now,” Goldberg added.
“If Republicans are concerned about how they’re going to go down in history, he’s going down as a whiney, crybaby narcissist because he could not hand over power because he could emotionally and psychologically process that he lost,” said guest-host Ana Navarro, who claims to be a Republican at times. “That’s how he is going to go down as a guy who left the office having a tantrum and impeding the next president in the midst of a pandemic and a national cries from and taking over and having a seamless transition.”
Co-host Sara Haines then got in on the action, saying, “I saw a nurse talking on tv saying people can’t even catch their breath. They’re dying, and they’re still denying this virus. Republicans who aren’t coming out right now are part of this problem, and they’re doing it purely for power. It’s party over people, and that is absolutely unacceptable.”
As usual, it was Goldberg who had the last word.
“There we have it, and that’s what all of this is, and when you go in to vote in Georgia, remember, this is the party that doesn’t care if you drop dead because you can’t breathe,” she said. “Clearly, they know what has to happen, and they are not doing it.”
EXPERTS CLAIM NO TRANSITION HURTING COVID-19 RESPONSE: As the U.S. reaches 11 million coronavirus cases and Moderna announces its vaccine is up to 94.5% effective, the co-hosts discuss the importance of a transition of power to the Biden administration. https://t.co/cJ7fqNIYFD pic.twitter.com/ASr3O8oIvW
