Whoopi Goldberg reminded some of her View co-hosts on Tuesday that NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not the first person to carry out political protests
“People have been protesting — be they athletes who won gold medals, who stood on the podium and did this,” she said, raising her fist to reference Tommie Smith and John Carlos’ 1968 Summer Olympics protest. “The bitch about all of this is we’re still protesting the same thing. People find the ways that they can do it.”
Paula Faris, Candace Cameron Bure, and Sarah Haines accused Kaepernick of being “disrespectful” or divisive by refusing to stand for the national anthem during the San Francisco 49ers’ slate of pre-season games this season.
“Instead of coming to the table and saying, ‘I don’t want to do this,’ let’s come to the table with some solutions,” said Faris, before Goldberg cut her off.
“Actually, we have done that,” she said. “We have come to the table with solutions.”

Republicans in Congress are angry about Trump’s latest racist comments — but not because they’re racist
There can be no denying that amid the firestorm from President Donald Trump tweeting that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) should "go back where they came from," Republicans in Congress are upset.
However, as many of them make clear in conversation with reporters, the fact that these comments were racist is not the main reason they are angry at the president. Rather, they are frustrated that his comments are hogging the news cycle, which leaves them incapable of discussing their agenda — and of criticizing the agenda of the Democratic representatives he targeted.
Lara Trump says the president is the real victim: He ‘gave up his entire life’ to be president
Campaign advisor Lara Trump defended her father-in-law saying that he's the real victim in this exchange between four Congresswomen of color. Then she repeated that these women can "leave" the country.
Trump began the fight Sunday when he told four Congresswomen that if they didn't like what was happening in the United States Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." The women are all citizens and all but one was born in the United States.
"The reality is everything he says, of course, was taken and misconstrued," she said, alleging Trump's statements were taken out of context. You can read them below:
George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column
Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.
Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.
"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully — in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I gave still him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist. No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.
