Whoopi Goldberg said Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that since the election, President Donald Trump was doing nothing to quell the coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, she declared blood was “on his hands.”
Co-host Sara Haines said, “This virus has been hijacked as a political message, and that’s the problem. Straight out of the gates, the president, current president, President Trump, and the administration turned this into a political message. The refusing to wear a mask became a rallying cry, and they leaned into it flagrantly disregarding all the science, and I think the other thing is the mask-wearing, you know like this was always a three-part action plan. it was wear your mask, socially distance, and wash your hands. it was always the three of those together, and it wasn’t going to 100% eliminate the virus, but it was our best weapon, and that’s straight from doctors and scientists.”
