It’s not exactly news that Whoopi Goldberg is a lunatic. After all, this is the same person that was suspended from her television show for two weeks after she suggested (multiple times) that the Holocaust wasn’t predicated on race. I guess she thought Adolf Hitler just didn’t like the little hats the Jewish men wore or something? However, don’t think that this episode will bring out the best in a Hollywood celebrity.
OMG! That was a completely normal reaction by Goldberg when Lauren Boebert questioned Joe Biden during the State of the Union. Here she is ranting and raving, calling the congresswoman “li’l girl” for daring to express dissent toward the president.

Can you imagine working with such people everyday? I’m starting to understand why Meghan McCain jumped ship. The women left on “The View” are legitimately unstable people, and that’s vividly expressed in their rhetoric. The constant raw anger and vitriol can’t be good for Goldberg’s blood pressure, considering she’s not exactly a picture of health as it is.
Yet, her rant seems incredibly instructive. Leftwingers such as Goldberg see Americans in two categories: the elites and everybody else.
You are banished to the outside if you hold an opinion they consider unacceptable. That’s just a profoundly anti-American sentiment, and it’s one that ignores that respect is a two-way street. Was Boebert’s outburst disrespectful, as Goldberg asserts? Sure, I’d say that’s a fair criticism, but what has Biden done to earn respect?
Let’s recall that he’s trashed Republicans as racist supporters of Jim Crow because they dared to support voter ID. You don’t deserve respect if you make people look so disgusting. I don’t care what office you hold.
Let’s not forget about hypocrisy. These are the same women, including Goldberg, who thought it was great that Nancy Pelosi tore up Donald Trump’s SOTU speech for the cameras back in 2020. Where were “The View” hosts’ concerns for decorum and respect for the office then? They didn’t have any because Donald Trump wasn’t part of the approved class. Do you yell about Joe Biden because he ignored the American servicemen who died in Afghanistan? Well, then it’s time to talk about respect and decorum again. It’s all extremely convenient, and extremely partisan.
Goldberg asks of Boebert, “Who the hell do you think you are?” The answer is that Boebert is an American with the right to free speech. It is possible to shout at the president without regard for whether it is appropriate. It’s one thing to say Boebert shouldn’t have done it. It’s another to suggest she doesn’t have the status to question the president. That’s not how any of this works. Biden serves at the pleasure of the nation’s citizenry, for better or worse. Biden isn’t a king and Goldberg shouldn’t be criticizing anyone for being disrespectful.
