Whoopi Goldberg And Hosts Of ‘The View’ Tear Into Kellyanne Conway For ‘Alternative Facts’ Comment
Whoopi Goldberg and her co-hosts set their sights on Kellyanne Conway after she said that Sean Spicer provided “alternative facts” about the size of Donald Trump’s inauguration crowd size.
“She coined a new term for the times we’re living in,” Goldberg said on “The View” Monday. “She could not even say it with a straight face. I was raised that an ‘alternative fact’ is not a fact. An alternative fact is a lie. Even people who are for him, this will erode their beliefs.”
“They have ears and they’re paying attention and this is not what they bargained for.”
“You can see she almost threw up in her mouth because she knows this not to be true,” Sunny Hostin added. “Why are the people he’s surrounding himself with unwilling to confront him and say ‘I’m not going to do that, I’m not going to say that’?”
“This is a conversation for the Republicans as well,” Goldberg continued. “Pay attention. You’re selling your soul out for something and I don’t think you realize the price that we’re gonna pay.”
“I used to be a runway model, and I’m 25 years old,” Joy Behar joked. “Whoopi is actually Caucasian.”
