Whoopi Goldberg Labels Manchin’s Criticism of VP Harris as “Bigoted” and “Really Disrespectful”


If you listen closely to members of the media and “entertainers,” you’ll quickly find that they have a special trump card for anyone who disagrees with or criticizes democrats.

This special card is called the ‘bigot card.’

This card cannot be countered in any way, as battling back against this argument only further perpetuates the fact that you are a horrible bigot.

The folks over at the View are never above using this card.

In fact, they do it on a daily basis.

Most recently, Whoopi Goldberg used this card in order to dispute criticism of VP Kamala Harris from democrat Senator Joe Manchin.

Manchin was critical over the fact that he was not notified of Harris’s visit to West Virginia for the television interview she did over the weekend whre she discussed the administration’s cvoronavirus relief plan.

Manchin, who calls himself a moderate, said that in order to find a bipartisan pathway forward, they needed to work together.

He then said of Harris’s surprise appearance: “That’s not working together.”

Whoopi Goldberg of the View says that Manchin’s comments were “bigoted” and snapped back at Manchin on the show.

Even Whoopi's co-hosts, Meghan McCain And Joy Behar, both disagreed with her on this one.

Politico has more on Manchin's original statement on the visit:

“I saw [the interview], I couldn’t believe it. No one called me,” Manchin said Friday to WSAZ, the West Virginia station where Harris gave an interview Thursday. “We’re going to try to find a bipartisan pathway forward, I think we need to do. But we need to work together. That’s not a way of working together.”

Harris appeared on WSAZ to speak about the massive relief package, saying: “To your point in West Virginia, one in seven families is describing their household as being hungry, one in six can’t pay their rent, and one in four small businesses are closing permanently or have already closed, so it’s a big issue in West Virginia and across the country.”

Manchin is part of a bipartisan group of senators that has pushed back against the administration's relief plan, urging that the proposed $1,400 direct payments be targeted toward those in greater need.

"We met with his economic team and they put out what they wanted," Manchin said in response to Harris. "We want to help everyone that needs help. But if a person's making $250K or $300K, I don't think they're in much needs as a person making $40K or 50K. That's all I said. We're going to target."

The Vice President's office declined to comment on Manchin's comments.

Sounds like trouble at home for democrats.

As for the White House, Press Secretary Jen Psaki called Joe Manchin a "key partner" for the Biden administration moving forward.

Fox News has more: 

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Monday said Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin is a "key partner" for the administration after Vice President Harris made appeared on a local West Virginia television station to discuss President Biden’s "critical" coronavirus relief plan— an appearance that angered the West Virginia senator.

Harris over the weekend promoted Biden’s $1.9 trillion "American Rescue Plan" during a pair of interviews with local TV stations in West Virginia and Arizona.

But Manchin, D-W.Va., said he was surprised by the Harris interview in his state, claiming no one from the administration had called him to discuss the appearance.

"We’re going to try to find a bipartisan pathway forward, but we need to work together," Manchin told WSAZ-TV of Huntington, W.Va. "That’s not working together."

During the White House press briefing on Monday, though, Psaki called Manchin a "key partner" and said the White House has "been in touch with him."

"We’ve been in touch with Sen. Manchin as we have been for many weeks and will continue to be moving forward," Psaki said.
