Whoopi Runs Her Big Mouth at Mike Pence… GETS A BRUTAL RESPONSE!
Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, Whoopi Goldberg and her fellow liberal nitwit hosts of The View have been whining about how “unfair” the result is. On Monday’s show, the women discussed the fact that the cast of “Hamilton” confronted Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday night.
Unsurprisingly, things quickly got heated.
Raw Story reported that host Sunny Hostin said the statement was “important to be directed at Mike Pence” since the cast of the show is so diverse. Sara Haines agreed, citing Pence’s history of advocating for gay conversion therapy.
“He actually redirected some funding from AIDs research to conversion,” Haines said.
Jedidiah Bila chose to defend Pence, saying that though she “didn’t mind the statement” itself, she minded “the way it was done.”
“I think there has to be a place—Mike Pence didn’t show up there as [vice] president-elect, he showed up with his daughter to see a play,” Bila argued as her cohosts tried to interrupt her with their protests. “This was not a political discussion. If I went to see a play, I’m very vocal politically on this show, if I went to see a play—“
“But you’re not vice president and they wouldn’t be doing this to you,” Whoopi Goldberg interjected.
“Maybe if I explain how this works you’ll understand it better,” Whoopi continued, telling Bila that when the cast learned that Pence would not be coming backstage, they read the statement during curtain call “because they wrote this for him, they wrote this to him.”
Whoopi also said that there’s a long history of Broadway stars speaking out about important issues from the stage, including during Broadway Cares/Equality Fights AIDs events.
Bila, however, refused to backdown to Whoopi.
“The way that I felt hearing it was, you’re basically marginalizing that person in the audience,” Bila argued. “You’re saying, ‘you’re part of the problem. I hope that you won’t be, but my perception of you is that you’re the other.’”
“What’s wrong with seizing the moment though?” Joy Behar asked “They’re not going to have this chance again. There he is, the perpetrator of anti-gay policies.”
We’re glad to see that Bila refused to submit to Whoopi Goldberg’s liberal agenda. Hey, Whoopi, if you don’t like Trump and his administration, then LEAVE!
