Whoopi to Trump: ‘If You Didn’t Do It, Why Are You in the Court?’

News & Politics

The View has championed so-called “criminal justice reform” efforts, praised cases of convicted criminals getting rulings overturned, and condemned former President Trump for his past calls to convict the Central Park Five. But on Wednesday’s edition of The View, moderator Whoopi Goldberg lashed out at Trump and proclaimed that he wouldn’t be in court if he didn’t commit the crimes he was accused of.

Goldberg’s bitter rant came at the conclusion of their first segment when they reacted to the court testimony of porn star Stormy Daniels. Just before going to a commercial break, she popped off about how Trump being in court was all the evidence needed to prove he was guilty:

GOLDBERG: You know, I just think if you didn’t do it, why are you in the court?

(…)

GOLDBERG: Why are you there?

(…)

GOLDBERG: You brought this on yourself. You did this to you. Nobody did this to you. You told the untruth. You took stuff. This is on you. This isn’t them. It isn’t the judge. This is yours.

Faux-conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin suggested that Trump’s refusal to testify also proved his guilt and “comedian” Joy Behar added that “O.J. didn’t take the stand either.”

Earlier in the segment, Farah Griffin whined that “This whole trial” was giving her “the ick.” She was “so frustrated it’s the first trial that we’re seeing of Trump and potentially only before the election.”

Farah Griffin lamented that Daniels’ testimony was a “mixed bag.” She claimed the porn star, who has lied publically, was “a credible person” but “hurt her credibility” by giving “salacious details” about her alleged affair with Trump.

“We all met her. We had her on the show,” she reminded the rest of the cast. “I would have liked to hear from Stormy who is a mom, who wants to live a private life, wants to put this behind her, has been exploited by countless men in her life, Donald Trump, Michael Avenatti. And she’s there under subpoena just to confirm what she’s able to.”

Always able to prioritize the important things, Behar spouted off about how she didn’t “trust” Trump with the nuclear codes because he allegedly didn’t “think to wear a condom when he’s having sex with a porn star.”

Without evidence, Behar also decried the documents case in Florida getting pushed back by claiming Trump “could have given [the documents] to any dictator in the world!”

“He may not go to jail for this but the American people can see what he is. He’s a despicable person and we have to remember that,” she tried to calm herself down.

What was actually worth remembering was that last year, The View decried the legal notion that Trump was entitled to a fair trial.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: This whole trial is giving me the ick. I’m so frustrated it’s the first trial that we’re seeing of Trump and potentially only before the election.

Here’s my thing. Stormy’s testimony was a mixed bag for me. So, we all met her –

JOY BEHAR: It was a what?

FARAH GRIFFIN: Mixed bag. We all met her. We had her on the show. I actually don’t believe she needed to into salacious detail. I would have liked to hear from Stormy who is a mom, who wants to live a private life, wants to put this behind her, has been exploited by countless men in her life, Donald Trump, Michael Avenatti. And she’s there under subpoena just to confirm what she’s able to.

SUNNY HOSTIN: She said some of that.

FARAH GRIFFIN: But I think if you’re a juror – cause then she is showed to have lied on Jimmy Kimmel and then she gets into these salacious details. I think it hurt her credibility and she is a credible person. I absolutely believe that this affair took place.

BEHAR: I thought it was very – go ahead.

FARAH GRIFFIN: But my two things. There’s two things they have to prove: the campaign finance side of it. I think that’s been proved. I think a consideration was how it would affect his campaign. But the falsifying business records, that’s tough.

HOSTIN: Why? Why do you think it’s tough?

FARAH GRIFFIN: He signed some things but he’s going to say, “I run an organization with thousands of employees, I make a lot of money, I sign things all the time my attorneys put in front of me.”

BEHAR: I don’t trust a guy with the nuclear codes who doesn’t think to wear a condom when he’s having sex with a porn star. I’m sorry. I think that it may – as you say, the other one down in Florida Cannon, that judge needs to be taken to task because she keeps kicking the can down the road on that whole trial –

HOSTIN: It’s indefinite now.

BEHAR: – with the documents, which he could have given to any dictator in the world! And we’re not going to see that until after he’s in office and then he’ll probably get rid of everybody who disagrees with him! But – He may not go to jail for this but the American people can see what he is. He’s a despicable person and we have to remember that.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: You know, I just think if you didn’t do it, why are you in the court?

FARAH GRIFFIN: Or testifying.

BEHAR: Get on the stand!

FARAH GRIFFIN: He won’t.

GOLDBERG: Why are you there?

FARAH GRIFFIN: Because he will not be able to say “I did not have sex with that woman.”

BEHAR: O.J. didn’t take the stand either.

GOLDBERG: You brought this on yourself. You did this to you. Nobody did this to you. You told the untruth. You took stuff. This is on you. This isn’t them. It isn’t the judge. This is yours.

BEHAR: Look in the mirror.

GOLDBERG: We’ll be right back.
