On Thursday’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg responded to the overturn of Roe v. Wade by calling on Democrats to pack the Supreme Court.
“You have a Supreme Court that is not a balance of left and right,” Goldberg said, according to Fox News. “That is not what is the Supreme Court is supposed to be because they have to rule, judicially, they’re supposed to be the balance of the country. They’re out of balance now, and I think the only way to fix it is we’re going to have to put other people on the court.”
Goldberg’s co-host Sunny Hostin then asked if she was “in favor of that.”
“I’m in favor of getting my country back,” Goldberg replied. “You know I’m a huge fan of the Supreme Court and I had a lot of faith in them and I don’t have faith in them now because I’m afraid that politics is now the way to go and not, not the law.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
When asked by guest host Ana Navarro to clarify what she meant, Goldberg said, “I’m talking about expanding the court.”
“He doesn’t have the votes,” Navarro said.
“It doesn’t change that that’s what I want,” Goldberg responded, with Hostin saying, that “he needs whip up the Democrats.”
“Democrats have had 50 years to codify this,” said co-host Sara Haines. “They knew it was a vulnerable decision by the Supreme Court which is why it ruled the day in every Supreme Court nomination hearing. This was the number one question. Two times it came up, and they could not get their stuff together to do this.”
This comes after White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Joe Biden does not agree with packing the Supreme Court.
“That is something that the president does not agree with,” she said last Saturday. “That is not something that he wants to do.”
Goldberg’s co-host Joy Behar slammed Democrats who claimed that Biden’s response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade was “painfully inadequate.”
“And by the way, why do you blame Biden? Biden had a promising agenda, and it was derailed by the DINOs [Democrats In Name Only], DINOs in Congress. Manchin and Sinema,” she said. “And so to blame Biden, the guy is trying. He put a Black woman on the Supreme Court, that was good.”
The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade one week ago, handing the issue of abortion back to the states. Liberals have been losing their minds ever since, and this is yet another example of that.
