The View’s Whoopi Goldberg shames conservative writer for attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for wearing clothes: ‘Hush, boy’

“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.

"I'm waking up in the middle of the night because I'm worrying about something or there's a heaviness," the 56-year-old former First Lady said.

"I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine, where I just have felt too low," she said.

Another watchdog at US State Department abruptly gone

Published

on

The internal watchdog looking into accusations against Secretary of State Mike Pompeo abruptly quit Wednesday, just months after his predecessor was fired.

The State Department's acting inspector general, Stephen Akard, is a longtime aide to Vice President Mike Pence and his installation in May had widely been seen as a way to keep a friendly figure in the role.

Akard informed colleagues that he is "returning to the private sector after years of public service," a State Department spokesperson said.

"We appreciate his dedication to the Department and to our country."

But Akard's departure comes just as his office finalizes a report on Pompeo's controversial decision to bypass Congress to sell $8.1 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia and other Arab allies.
