Whoopi Goldberg claimed that everything’s being questioned these days including whether or not she’s “free.”

“They were saying it was a big Bannon versus Trump moment,” co-host Sarah Haines explained. “The scariest thing to wake up to is a Bannon victory. And so knowing that he backed this guy is scary. I think the more concerning part is people are voting people like this gentlemen in.”
“He wants to legislate religion,” she added. “The beauty of this country is that we’re all so different and believe in different things. The second you start to legislate one religion — you can’t legislate religion.”
“The minute you start legislating one religion, it makes us no different than the people we’re fighting,” Goldberg said.
“Because there’s a separation of church and state…there’s supposed to be,” Sunny Hostin interjected.
“Everything is being questioned all of the sudden,” Joy Behar shared. “The First Amendment, church and state, all of the sudden.”
“Whether I’m free,” Goldberg interjected. “The greatest thing, as you said, is that we celebrate our differences. That’s the thing. That’s what makes America great. We don’t look the same and sound the same, but hey we’re all Americans.”
