Goldberg Gives Surprising Statement About Fiorina on The View
The View came under harsh criticism last week when the group of girls sat around their table and laughed about Carly Fiorina, calling her face demented. After the episode with CNBC’s debate, where it was overly clear which side the network leaned, these comments came under serious fire from their bias and their partisan point of view.
Co-hosts Michelle Collins and Joy Behar laughed about Fiorina’s smile at the debate, stating that, “she looked demented,” and that she should have a Halloween mask.
Well, as there was so much uproar over Trump’s remark, Fiorina is holding the ladies on The View to the exact same standard, and said on Fox News on Sunday that they should “have the guts to say that to my face.” She also noted that it is a real threat to the liberal agenda to see a conservative woman, as many liberal talking points are about how the GOP hates women. Fiorina, on the defense, is calmly stating and illustrating why President Obama and Hillary Clinton are in fact not champions for women’s rights, and for this reason, poses a real threat to a core of the Democrat platform.
Whoopi Goldberg did not seem to apologize for the comments made on The View, stating that although she would not be there on Friday, the last time Fiorina was “welcomed” to their table they helped her compete in the sea of GOP men. Whoopi Goldberg continues, “Just so we’re all clear, you have to know the difference between when somebody’s coming for you, when somebody is paying you a compliment and when somebody is saying, ‘Here’s my observation.’ If you can get that together, maybe you can be president.”
While that does not sound in any way remorseful for a below the belt comment. Because of this episode, you would think these women would no longer call out those who criticize liberals in such a way, or dislike Trump for his harsh, out of line comments, because apparently to be able to “hear observations,” from the media in order to be president. The View clearly made another jab at Fiorina about this, not backing down from the controversial statement, and not standing with Fiorina.
It makes you think, how can women really fight for equality if we tear down each other? As Fiorina said, they are attacking the messenger because they do not like the message. I smell a double standard here.
