Fox & Friends Blasts The View’s Goldberg For Torture Remarks: ‘Lets See Whoopi Handle Terrorists’

On Saturday, Fox and Friends blasted The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg for her comments on torture that the Fox News hosts insisted was actually a challenge to President Donald Trump to be waterboarded.

Earlier this week, Goldberg suggested on her daytime show that Trump only supported Gina Haspel‘s nomination to be head of the CIA because he had never been tortured himself.

In response, Fox and Friends replayed the clip of her show, with the chyron blaring,”‘View’ host suggests Trump be waterboarded.”

“I think people who have actually been tortured who are saying that this is not a good thing you should listen to them because you have never been tortured and neither has Dick Cheney,” Goldberg is heard saying in the clip, which was introduced as Goldberg challenging Trump to be tortured.

Fox guest author and former CIA interrogator Dr. James Mitchell then chimed in and suggested Goldberg should go to an “unsafe place” and “interrogate the terrorists” herself.

“The next time there’s credible intelligence of another catastrophic attack with the potential to kill thousands of people in the United States, maybe she could go to some unsafe place in the world and interrogate the terrorists and I’ll stay back home,” Mitchell opined. “I’ll stay safe with my family and I’ll criticize her like she criticized us.”

As Mitchell talked, the Fox chyron once again amplified the criticism of Goldberg with “Mitchell: Let’s see Whoopi handle terrorists” and “Interrogator to Whoopi: Show us how it’s done” appearing at the bottom of the screen.
