Ever since Donald Trump was inaugurated, Whoopi Goldberg has been launching vile attacks on him during her liberal talk show The View. Last week, she took things too far when she compared Trump’s administration to the deadly terrorist group the Taliban.
Unfortunately for Whoopi, however, she quickly learned this was a BAD idea.
“Let me ask you now. We have a leader who has repeatedly demeaned women, wants to defund organizations that benefit women, calling on the media to shut up, specifically wants to give preferential treatment based on religion — are these values really much different than the Taliban’s?” Whoopi said, according to The Blaze.
When asked about Trump’s values, Whoopi replied, “Well, the values that we are listening to” as she cited the temporary travel ban. She has ignorantly dubbed this temporary ban on travel from seven countries with known ties to terrorism as a “Muslim ban.”
Whoopi went on to slam White House adviser Steve Bannon’s advice for the media to “keep its mouth shut” as well as Trump’s promise to prioritize Christian refugees over Muslims.
“Here’s the thing — we have a constitution that says these are the things we don’t do, this is what makes us different from everybody else,” Goldberg said. “Nobody tells our media to shut up and just take it. That’s not America. That is the Taliban.”
