Whoopi Goldberg, the lead cohost of ABC’s The View, is going after President Trump‘s man whisperer Steve Bannon.

“Steve Bannon we see what you are doing,” Whoopi said menacingly on Thursday’s show during a Hot Topic discussion about what the ladies felt was Trump’s mishandling of Black History Month. “We know what you are doing Steve. We know this is you President Steve Bannon. We’re hip to you.”

All the cohosts trashed Trump. But Whoopi saved her most scathing remarks for Bannon.

They began by assessing Trump’s handling of Black History Month in which POTUS acted as if the late abolitionist Frederick Douglass was still alive even though the famed historical figure died 122 years ago.

“I think it might have been an interruption in Steve Bannon’s thinking,” Whoopi said. “I believe in my soul that Steve Bannon is controlling everything because I just feel he’s handing the new president this information.”

Whoopi, who has compared Trump to the Taliban, even had a conspiracy theory that Bannon is purposely giving Trump dumb information so that Trump could eventually swoop in and save the day. (Huh???!!!)

Joy Behar, who was a big Bernie Sanders lover, was also incensed by Trump’s Black History Month remarks. “It’s clear that these two white guys know diddly about Black History Month,” she said.

Jedediah Bila, a former contributor at Fox News, sort of defended Bannon.

“Steve Bannon is not dumb,” she said.

And that was about the kindest thing she could say about him.

“When Trump acts like Trump this is what happened,” she continued. “Do your research. He spent so much time during the breakfast talking about him.”

On the topic of Douglass’s living status, she cracked, “Even if you don’t know the depth of the history you don’t know the guy’s dead?”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, the ladies were always viciously #neverTrump with the exception of ABC Good Morning America cohost Paula Faris, who occasionally pushed back against their liberal stances.

Trump continuously rattled them by insulting them and their program on Twitter.

“Whoopi Goldberg is terrible!” Trump said last summer. “Very sad! Joy Behar, who was fired from her last show for lack of ratings, is even worse.”

Trump needled them, saying the show was great when Barbara Walters was in charge, but was now in a “total free fall.”
