Whoopi Goldberg went off the rails in her latest television broadcast.
Goldberg was quoted saying “if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’m going to punch somebody”.
She made her comments on the show just minutes after showing a video clip of Democrat Senator Chris Murphy yelling before Congress What are we doing” regarding gun control.
You would think after an act of violence such as 19 children being killed along with two teachers, Whoopi would refrain from making such threats but she didn’t.

The Daily Wire had more on the story:
“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg held nothing back on Wednesday’s broadcast of the ABC midday talk show, responding to the tragic news of a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, by blasting Republicans saying they should have “done something by now.”
Goldberg and her co-hosts discussed the shooting at Robb Elementary School — which left at least 19 students, two adults, and the 18-year-old shooter dead — and she said that she was tired of hearing politicians offer their “thoughts and prayers” in the aftermath of such tragedy.
Goldberg began with a clip of Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), who was on the Senate floor calling for gun control within hours of the shooting — and he ended his emotional speech with a question: “What are we doing?”
“So that’s the question. What are we doing? Because we’re – why are we always at square one with this?” Goldberg echoed Murphy’s question. “And I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’m going to punch somebody.”
“I can’t take any — thoughts and prayers. If your thoughts and prayers really were with everybody, you would have done something by now,” Goldberg insisted, adding, “What the hell is going on?

Breitbart got the scoop too:
Whoopi Goldberg expressed her displeasure over hearing Republicans offering “thoughts and prayers” in response to Tuesday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX.
Goldberg said, “What are we doing? Why are we always at square one with this? And I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’m going to go punch somebody. I can’t take it and their thoughts and prayers. If your thoughts and prayers were really with everybody, you would have done something by now. It’s not like everybody’s not trying to make something happen. What the hell is going on?”
