Whoopi Goldberg opened Thursday’s episode of “The View” with a bang. “No one has a way with words quite like our new Housing Secretary Dr. Ben Carson.” (RELATED: Whoopi Goldberg Says ‘The View’ Is More Credible Than Fox News [VIDEO])

Spurred on by comments Ben Carson made while touring low-income housing in Columbus, Ohio that people who live in these developments shouldn’t be too “comfortable,” Goldberg really let loose on the head of HUD.

“It just feels, Ben, like you’re kinda blaming poor people for being poor. You think poor people wanna stay in the housing, because I gotta tell you, all I could think of was how to get the hell out of there.”

Goldberg herself once lived in the Chelsea Houses, a government-subsidized housing project in Manhattan.

“It’s like what they’re saying is, ‘If you help poor people, they’ll develop dependency,'” opined Joy Behar. “But it does not ever apply to rich people, such as Donald Trump, who I believe got $14 million dollars from his father.”
