“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg sent Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle packing after a highly contentious appearance.
The president’s eldest son offered excuses for his father’s dealings with Ukraine, defended his revelation of a whistleblower’s name and accused co-host Joy Behar of wearing blackface — and Goldberg had enough.
“You know what, here’s the thing,” Goldberg said, trying to lower the noise level. “It would be easier to have this conversation if we could do it without the jokes, because the jokes are making it hard to hear anybody’s points.”
Joy Behar asked who had been joking, and Trump Jr. used that as a jumping-off point to complain about political correctness.
“We have to have that kind of discourse, and look at what’s going on in terms of P.C. culture,” he said.
Goldberg insisted there was no such thing, but Trump Jr. persisted.
“There is,” he said. “What do you think about Dave Chappelle or (Bill) Burr or those guys getting canceled?”
He then argued with Goldberg and Behar about comedy, and Abby Huntsman tried to lighten the mood by asking Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle when they were getting married.
“Let’s get the president re-elected,” Guilfoyle said.
The couple then praised one another, before Guilfoyle ticked off a litany of praise for the president.
“I grew up in the Mission District, where (Goldberg) filmed ‘Sister Act,’ one of my parishes there,” Guilfoyle said. “I’ve known the president 13 years, I know Don Jr. I’m proud Latina, I know the measure of the man, I know his character — the entire family. I stand for them because I do believe their commitment. Women are doing better under President Trump, Hispanics, African-Americans — that’s not fake news, it’s real.”
That’s when Goldberg called the appearance to a halt.
“I will just say this because, it is the end of the show,” she said, pausing.
The other panelists seemed confused, because the show still had 15 minutes left.
“I don’t think it is, Whoop,” Huntsman said.
Goldberg made herself more clear.
“It’s the end of this show,” she said, gesturing toward her two guests — who realized they’d been sent on their way.
“Oh, okay,” Trump Jr. said, biting his lips as Guilfoyle made an exaggerated, but silent, laugh.
Nicolle Wallace tells Colbert why she cursed at Fox News host Laura Ingraham — and that she left the GOP
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace appeared on Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" Wednesday after spending hours analyzing the impeachment hearings that began that morning.
One of the first things Colbert asked about was the recent smackdown from Wallace about Fox News host Laura Ingraham and her guests going after Col. Alexander Vindman. Ingraham proposed that because Vindman was born in Ukraine that he was somehow a traitor to the United States for coming forward about President Donald Trump's admitted crimes.
‘It takes a small mind to want to out a whistleblower’: Rachel Maddow blasts Trump and GOP
In an analysis of the first day of impeachment, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow explained to late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon why the impeachment hearings were a lot more rational than she anticipated.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) switched committees just to appear and ask questions and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) humiliated himself, but aside from that, Maddow said she was surprised there were reasonable questions, and everyone remained calm.
Seth Meyers mocks Devin Nunes saying Dems wanted to find nude photos of Trump: ‘Literally no one wants that’
"Late Night" host Seth Meyers ridiculed Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for his absurd line of questioning that accused Democrats of the impeachment is the same as the Russia scandal.
Nunes said that Democrats want the world to forget about their efforts to obtain nude photos of Trump, something Meyers countered with actual sense.
"Hey man, I guarantee you no one wants nude pictures of Donald Trump," Meyers said. "I'm not crazy about clothed pictures of Donald Trump. Also, I have to believe that if there were nude pictures of Donald Trump, the first person to show them would be Donald Trump. He'd probably hold a press conference with a giant poster board."
