In a very brief segment, introduced without comment, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver took a dig at The View host Whoopi Goldberg for her tendency to give the benefit of the doubt — in spite of overwhelming evidence — to famous celebrities and friends accused of terrible acts.

Goldberg recently took fire for continuing to defend Bill Cosby from accusations of rape despite recently released court documents where the comedian testified under oath that he gave Quaaludes to at least one woman he had sex with.

Goldberg explained that Cosby “has not been proven a rapist,” in a court of law, later stating, “Save your texts, save your nasty comments, I don’t care,” as criticism of her comments rolled in.

The collection of clips — offered with a simple “And now this”  by a smiling Oliver — is titled “Whoopi Goldberg defends ten surprising things.”

Among the clips is her famous “I don’t believe it was rape-rape,” defense of director Roman Polanski who fled the country after being accused of having sex with a 13-year-old, and Goldberg withholding judgement of singer Chris Brown after he brutally beat his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna, prior to the Grammys.

Speaking of actor Mel Gibson, who she called a friend, Goldberg said “I know he’s not a racist” despite audio recordings of him saying to an ex-girlfriend, “You look like a f*cking pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n****rs, it will be your fault.”

Additionally, Goldberg also questioned whether the moon landing ever happened, and defended torture, saying other countries have used it effectively.

Fox News' John Roberts was enraged after the White House press briefing on Thursday in which Kayleigh McEnany refused to denounce white supremacy or explain why the president refuses to do so.

During Tuesday's debate, Trump hammered former Vice President Joe Biden on denouncing violent protesters, which Biden did, saying that violence is not the answer and anyone who induces violence should be prosecuted. President Donald Trump, by contrast, refused to condemn white supremacists and militias who are trying to stir up more unrest to help Trump craft a narrative that Democrats are dangerous and create violence.

‘Where is this river?’ Kayleigh McEnany’s press briefing goes haywire as she’s pressed over bizarre Trump rant

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany struggled on Thursday to back up President Donald Trump's claims that several ballots had been found floating in a river.

The trouble started when Fox News Radio reporter Jon Decker asked McEnany to justify some of the president's wild claims being thrown around about mail-in ballots.

"The other day he said, 'They found a lot of ballots in a river,'" Decker began. "Who is they?"

McEnany claimed that the president was referring to reports that a bag of mail in Wisconsin, which included some absentee ballots, had ended up in a ditch.

A Fox News correspondent grilled White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany over President Donald Trump's refusal to disavow white supremacists.

The president demurred when asked to do so during the first presidential debate, and continued to equivocate when pressed again afterward, and White House correspondent John Roberts asked the press secretary to disavow those hate groups.

"I would like to ask you for a definitive and declarative statement without ambiguity or deflection, as the person who speaks for the president, does the president denounce white supremacists?" Roberts asked during Thursday's briefing.
