You can add Whoopi Goldberg to the list of Hollywood deplorable who will leave the country is Donald Trump is elected.
For some reason, celebrities think we actually care about their political opinions, or personal lives. Whoopi is just one of the latest to hop on the anti-Trump bandwagon.
What’s her beef with Trump? About as generic as any other uninformed leftist who gets to run their mouth on TV, knowing they’ll never run into someone who will contradict them.
As the US Herald reported:
ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump needs to “stop blaming” others for the problems in America and threatened to “move” out of the country.
Goldberg said, “People don’t like being the butt of the jokes and now that people say, listen, you can’t make me the butt of your jokes, I don’t like it. You can’t use me as some sort of stereotype. I don’t like it. That’s the PC people are talking about. And the bottom line is this—find a different way to say what you’re going to say. People are not going to take it anymore. So if that’s what’s pisses you off, you’re going to stay angry.”
Co-host Joy Behar said, “A lot of it has to do with their pocketbook. They’re not making as much money as they used to make, that particular group of people. Maybe jobs are overseas, maybe technology has taken over, they don’t have the background for it. They’re ticked off.”
Goldberg interjected, “But then you can’t blame immigrants for that.”
Behar continued, “That’s scapegoating. It’s as old as the hills. What do you think World War II is all about? You know that. It’s all about blaming the Jews. Now it’s the Mexicans and the Muslims. Blame everybody but yourself.”
As a few of you may have noticed from the video above, it was uploaded by a pro-Trump YouTube account, and that’s no coincidence. Maybe Whoopi isn’t all that self aware, but her offering to leave the country in the event of a Trump victory if one of the greatest advertisements for the benefits of a Trump Presidency there is. That – and the fact that Lena Dunham, Rosie O’Donnell, and Cher have also made the same promise.
None of them seem to realize that all of them leaving in the event of a Trump Presidency is a present. I’ll be extremely disappointed if any of them refuse to stay true to their word.
