The View’s Whoopi Goldberg gets fired up and blasts ‘educate his a**’ after clip is shown during debate live on air

The View’s Whoopi Goldberg gets fired up and blasts ‘educate his a**’ after clip is shown during debate live on air

THE VIEW host Whoopi Goldberg has gotten fired up, even blasting the phrase “educate his a**,” after a clip is shown during an on-air debate.

Whoopi, 67, is well-known for being very vocal regarding her opinion on the topics about which she is passionate.

During Thursday’s episode of The View, the panel watched and discussed a clip that showed New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, 42, and Prime Minister of Finland Sanna Marin, 37, “school a reporter” after he asked the politicians a “stupid” question during a press conference.

The reporter asked the prime ministers: “A lot of people will be wondering are you two meeting just because, you know, you’re similar in age and, you know, got a lot of, you know common stuff there?”

He continued his ill-worded question, asking “When you got into politics and stuff?”

Prime Minister Jacinda was first to respond, meeting his question with a query of her own.

“My first question is I wonder whether or not anyone ever asked Barach Obama and John Key if they met because they are of similar age?”

She continued: “We of course have a higher proportion of men in politics it’s reality [but] because two women meet it’s not simply because of their gender.”

Prime Minister Sanna Marin then added: “Yeah, we are meeting because we are prime ministers.”

Back in the studio, the audience applauded the politicians’ responses as Whoopi explained: “When you think of all the women who have run countries, I mean what is this stupid question?”

Mocking the reporter, the morning show moderator asked: “Are you meeting you’re two black women? Or are you meeting because you both have breasts?”

Cohost Ana Navarro, 50, chimed in, stating: “It’s almost felt like he was saying ‘So do you guys go get manis’ and pedis’ together? Are you ladies who do lunch?’”

The political strategist continued: “The woman from New Zealand, that lady is a bada**. The way she’s handled COVID the way she’s handled gun control in her country, she really is an exemplary leader.”

Alyssa Farah Griffith, 33, disclosed that she thought the question was “so cringe.”

“He’s like ‘we’re all wondering,’ no one was wondering that except you guy.”

She continued: We still do this thing where we are so reductive about women and it’s like ‘certainly they can’t be talking about national defense or foreign policy they’re probably exchanging recipes.’”

The TV personality concluded: “I can’t believe in 2022 that’s what we’re still doing.”

Whoopi then disappointedly voiced: “Just the idea that we have to explain to people that in fact, women are people.

“It’s sad because I feel like we have to do a better job as parents educating men.”

Referencing the reporter, Whoopi concluded “Maybe he’s not going to have a job. They shouldn’t fire him, just educate his a**.”

Viewers took to Twitter to share their opinions on Whoopi’s take and the reporter’s daft question.

One person wrote: “Whoopi Goldberg: ‘Are you meeting because you both have breasts?’ She makes a point about the reporter’s question to Prime Ministers Jacinda Ardern and Sanna Marin, but it’s funny.”

Another fan tweeted: “Those Prime Ministers SCHOOLED the h**l outta that reporter.”

CONTROVERSIAL OPINION

During the same broadcast, Whoopi warned viewers that they might “freak” out over a controversial opinion she shared with them on the live show.

Early into Thursday’s show, the hosts brought up a Hot Topic about the new Casey Anthony docuseries on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock.

The panelists went back and forth about the backlash that the show has been receiving. 

Fans are not happy that Casey – who was charged with the murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, but was acquitted of the charges – is being given a larger platform via a TV series.

Alyssa blasted the fact that the woman is getting more publicity.

Meanwhile, Joy Behar, 80, likened it to all of the true crime shows out there, like the recent Netflix series about Jeffrey Dahmer.

That’s when Whoopi jumped in, saying: “Listen, I’m gonna say something that’s probably gonna really freak people out.”

She continued: “You know, not every mother is meant to be a mother. I’m sorry. Not every woman is meant to be a mother.

“And while we would like to believe that women have this instinct, they all don’t.”

Though she sounded unsure of how viewers might react to that statement, many shared on social media that they agreed.

“Say it louder for all, Whoopi,” wrote one fan.

Another commented: “Whoopi spoke [the] truth. Not every woman has a motherly instinct.”

A third said: “True story. I agree everybody is not meant to be a parent/caregiver.”

While fans didn’t seem to freak out by Whoopi’s comment as much as she thought they would, viewers have called out the host for different reasons this week.

DISENGAGED LISTENER

On Tuesday, fans blasted the moderator’s rude on-air behavior and insisted the show’s better without her on it.

Whoopi’s impolite behavior was on display during a segment where the panelists discussed the hit movie, Love Actually.

After announcing a new special about the 20-year anniversary of the “beloved holiday romantic comedy,” Whoopi asked her cohosts: “Why do you think so many people keep going back to the movie?”

Joy was the first to respond, declaring: “It’s a fabulous film.”

She explained, “It’s very edgy but yet it’s heartwarming,” before listing several of the film’s stars.”

The other hosts then went on to share their opinions on the film, though Sunny Hostin revealed she’d never seen it and wasn’t all that interested in changing that.

While Joy, Sara Haines, and Alyssa attempted to convince Sunny that she would like the film if she gave the movie a chance, Whoopi couldn’t look more disinterested in the discussion.

As the cohosts continued chatting, the camera switched to an angle that captured the entire cast – including Whoopi, who appeared to not even be paying attention.

The EGOT winner stared out into the audience and rudely interacted with its members as the other hosts discussed the topic.

One fan pointed out on Twitter: “Whoopi could care less.”

A second called out “Whoopi and Sunny’s faces while they go on and on about Love Actually.”
