Whoopi Goldberg lost it on “The View” Wednesday in demanding that White House press secretary Sean Spicer answer reporters’ questions about Russia’s possible involvement in the election.
The host of the daytime talk show blasted President Donald Trump’s press secretary for his answer to April Ryan, a reporter with American Radio Urban Networks, during the daily press briefing Tuesday when he told her that “if the president put Russian salad dressing on his salad tonight, somehow that’s a Russian connection.”(RELATED: Omarosa Destroys The Ladies Of ‘The View’)
“He [Spicer] has to make sense of all this ridiculousness and make it look like he actually cares, “Goldberg said. “But here’s my question…Russian salad dressing? All of these journalists are talking about real stuff.” (RELATED: Whoopi Goldberg Says ‘The View’ Is More Credible Than Fox News [VIDEO])
“These are real connections to Russia,” she added. “Stop brushing it off, answer the freaking questions, Sean. Just answer the question.”
Co-host Joy Behar then asked why all the journalists at the press briefing don’t just get up and say “Stop lying, stop it.” Behar then questioned why other journalists don’t stick up for Ryan and say, “Stop bullying the journalists.”
“What he [Spicer] needs to do is his job, and stop trying to figure out the way around this,” Goldberg interjected. “The legitimate question was what’s happening with this Russian stuff. His answer needs to be, ‘you know what, poops happening.'”
Later, Goldberg accused Trump of being thin-skinned and blasted him for comments he made in the past against Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
“If you can dish it, you have to be able to take it, ” Goldberg said. “But you did it and now, every president goes through this. Grow a pair, it’s part of the job.”
