“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg shamed a conservative writer for trying to mock newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for wearing a business suit at the Capitol.
Eddie Scarry, a reporter for the Washington Examiner, shared a photo of Ocasio-Cortez wearing a black suit, and suggested she was a hypocrite for wearing the outfit after claiming she didn’t have enough money to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C.
“The first thing I understand when I see what you wrote, sir, is that you know nothing about women’s clothing,” Goldberg said. “You know nothing about women’s clothing.”
She said there was no way to determine how much the newly elected lawmaker had spent on the suit — not that the cost matter.
“Listen, women can put together an outfit and make it look like a zillion dollars, it costs 45 cents,” Goldberg said. “If you’ve got to look good, that’s what women do, so that’s a little — you know, hush, boy.”
Goldberg said the double standard was glaring.
“You know, really what I found interesting is that we have had newly elected officials sleep in their offices because they couldn’t afford the rent, on both sides,” she said.
Guest host Ana Navarro named House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) as lawmakers who’d slept in their offices, and co-host Joy Behar pointed out Joe Biden had, as well.
“Again, as I said, young sir, shhh,” Goldberg said.

Julian Castro nails McConnell and GOP to the wall for putting ‘sexual predator’ Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court
Calling into MSNBC's "AM Joy" on Sunday morning, Democratic presidential contender Julian Castro ripped into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a serial sexual predator and said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP are to blame for his being on the court.
Speaking with host Joy Reid, Castro renewed a call he made late Saturday night for Kavanaugh to be impeached over fresh allegations of sexual assault before getting down to the heart of the matter.
"Do you believe there was misconduct in this case by the FBI and the Department of Justice or even by the senators who seemed uninterested in finding out of what really happened with this very brief investigation of Mr. Kavanaugh?" Reid asked.
