The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg said President Trump’s words on the campaign trail has caused her to sink into a “depression.”
“What is he talking about? I’m in a depression now, because of him. Every time I see him, he depresses me. Everything he says is pissing me off and depressing me,” Goldberg said on Monday on The View.
Goldberg was venting frustrations with Trump after showing a clip of him at a rally on Sunday, where he criticized the effect a Joe Biden presidency would have on America.
“If you vote for Biden, he will surrender your jobs to China. He will surrender your future to the virus,” Trump said in the clip. “He’s going to lock down, he’s gonna want us to lock down. He’ll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would, right now, have a country that would be in a massive depression, instead of, well, like a rocketship.”
“I don’t know what rocket he’s on, but I’m getting off the rocket he’s on. That’s ridiculous, but we’re about two weeks away from this election. Is this a winning strategy, Sunny? You think he’s making sense to folks, particularly people who may have lost loved ones over this?” she added.
Goldberg handed off the discussion to co-host Sunny Hostin, who said she was “disgusted” by Trump’s comments.
“I’m just shocked to hear him say that. … When you hear something like this coming from the president, who, in my view, is responsible for the deaths of over 200,000 Americans, now saying that he doesn’t listen to scientists and that he hasn’t listened to scientists,” Hostin said.
“You know, it’s just … it’s just remarkable, Whoopi, to me. It’s just remarkable because had he listened to scientists, he would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives. He’s just so reckless and cavalier about it. I’m actually disgusted this morning to hear that. I’m disgusted.”
