Whoopi ‘surprised’ campaign let Melania Trump talk to ‘same media that’s rigging the election’
Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of “The View,” had a good chuckle when talking about the Melania Trump interview done with CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night.
“What I was surprised by is that Trump’s campaign let her speak to the same media that’s rigging the election,” Goldberg joked. While her co-hosts laughed and the audience applauded, Goldberg was also being serious. “Because, Anderson Cooper had this interview. So, it’s like, but you weren’t you pissed that … okay, nevermind.”
Co-Host Jedediah Bila noted that she wished they would leave the spouses out of the ordeal and a more important issue to her was that Trump’s character was revealed in this instance.
“People’s character is revealed when they think people aren’t watching,” Bila said. “So, I would just remind everyone of that. If he didn’t know he was mic’d, that’s still who he is. You can egg me on all you want, there’s things I’m not going to say. So, it does speak to his character. And, I think, the investigations need to play out and you need to let people — if people are going to make accusations, let them make them and let’s figure out what’s going here.”
Candace Cameron-Bure said that she appreciated what Melania said, but took issue with the fact that Billy Bush was “egging him on” on the bus in 2005. “I did not feel that way because I feel like when you accept something or take responsibility, you can’t, in the same breath, throw it to someone else or put blame on someone else.”
