Whoopi Goldberg Just Demolished Mitch McConnell Over Racist Reparation Comments: Watch
Whoopi Goldberg blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday after the Republican senator claimed that reparations are not needed because we elected Barack Obama as president.
McConnell disagreed with reparations for slavery, lynching, discrimination and other racist institutions. He claimed that “electing an African-American president” was enough to make up for the years of slavery in America.
“The View” host called out his hypocrisy.
“You know, Mitch, you said that you would make him a one-term president,” Goldberg said, “and you did everything you could to not help him in the first four years. Maybe you should pay reparation for that.”
Goldberg argued that black work and wealth had been stolen for centuries, and she said racism was much bigger than anything President Donald Trump — whose name she never says — and the Republican Party had done.
“It’s not them,” she said. “This is much bigger than Trump.”
The crowd then started booing after she mentioned Trump’s name.
“Oh, I said his name!” Goldberg said, covering her mouth as the audience booed.
