The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg Delivers Impassioned Plea: Left or Right, Child Separation ‘Has to Piss You Off!’
The View continued to slam President Donald Trump on Tuesday, showing clear disapproval for how the White House has tried to justify and explain their division of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Sara Haines had a hard time taking DHS Chief Kirstjen Nielsen seriously, saying that the Secretary of Homeland Security blundered yesterday’s press briefing just as she other press events. Joy Behar followed up, condemning Trump defenders like Fox News’ Laura Ingraham for dismissing the widespread outrage and saying migrant children are basically placed in “summer camp” after being taken away from their families.
“Children want their parents. They want their grandparents there,” Behar said. “I don’t think in summer camp mothers were dragged out screaming ‘I want my child back.’ They were sending them to camp.”
Whoopi Goldberg eventually got in on the conversation with an impassioned plea, noting that with so much media coverage surrounding the border controversy, more people are expressing disapproval as they see how migrant children are being treated.
“I feel like these visuals of us seeing these children being separated…is going to help us as Americans,” Goldberg said. “Whether you’re left or right, as an American, this has to piss you off! This should piss you off.”
