Whoopi Goldberg slammed Chris Christie for attacking [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore], calling for the New Jersey governor to “stop talking about people’s bubbles and get home to your own.”

Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” Goldberg critiqued Christie’s attempt to label Rubio as “the boy in the bubble” while he has been away from New Jersey so much in order to campaign for president. (VIDEO: Christie Claims Rubio Is ‘The Boy In The Bubble’)

“The View” played Christie’s remarks from Tuesday in New Hampshire where told reporters, “I’m not the boy in the bubble, OK. You know who the boy in the bubble is up here, who never answers your questions, who is constantly scripted and controlled because he can’t answer your questions. So when Sen. Rubio gets here, when the boy in the bubble gets here, I hope you guys ask him some questions.”

“You know, it’s kind of interesting because Chris Christie spent 191 days entirely outside of New Jersey [in 2015],” Goldberg said. “Last month 158 bills piled up while he was campaigning waiting to be signed.”

Christie “created two commissions, task force, seven key cabinet positions — including attorney general, state treasurer — are still tilted only on an acting basis, and he’s delegated virtually all of his office’s public activities to the lieutenant governor. Dude, you should stop talking about people’s bubbles and get home to your own,” Goldberg proclaimed.

Co-host Joy Behar agreed with Goldberg’s argument.

Candace Cameron Bure added, “I think the candidates want to just label something, like Trump said about [Jeb] Bush that he was ‘low energy.’ They just want this catchphrase that’s going to be repeated so their name can stay in the news or somehow label another candidate, but I just think it’s very unpresidential.” (VIDEO: Trump: ‘Jeb, For All Your Sleeping Needs’)
