‘Freudian slip perhaps?‘: The View calls out Trump for tweeting that he’s ‘giving our country away’
The women of “The View” were in rare form after returning from vacation Monday. But it co-host Whoopi Goldberg who noticed a strange admission by President Donald Trump in his morning tweets. Trump was responding to criticism that Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump took his place during G-20 meetings.
“Can you put that back up again?” Whoopi asked, standing up from the table. “Now, is this something we should be paying attention to.”
Goldberg then walked over to the screen and gestured to a key part of Trump’s Monday morning tweet attacking Chelsea Clinton and former Secretary Hillary Clinton.
“If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!” Trump tweeted, with emphasis by Raw Story.
“As her mother gave our country away,” Goldberg quoted. “Is that what he’s doing? Because, you know, one of the things I find interesting about him is he always lets you know — remember when he said, ‘It’s all fake news. It’s all fake this. It’s a rigged election.’ Mmmm-humm.”
“Well, it was rigged in his favor,” co-host Joy Behar called out.
“That’s the point,” Goldberg said. “That’s an interesting choice of words.”
“A Freudian slip, perhaps,” co-host Sunny Hostin agreed.
Conservative host Jedediah Bila agreed before Goldberg cut in to say that Trump’s point was “nothing to see here!”
