An uncomfortable situation unfolded on “The View” set this morning when co-host Whoopi Goldberg confronted conservative author Ann Coulter. Goldberg demanded that the commentator tell her how much she knows “about being black” and later proclaimed that Coulter’s “facts are a little shaky.”
Appearing on the show to discuss her new book, “Mugged,” Coulter detailed her reasoning for writing the book, while defending Republicans against common Democratic talking points about race. Her comments were apparently so infuriating to Goldberg that the network was forced to bleep out the co-host.
“What I’m trying to say is race-mongering has been very bad for America,” she said. “Liberals use it to promote causes that have nothing to do with blacks and, in fact, harm blacks.”
Goldberg simply couldn’t handle Coulter’s stance on race relations, so she interrupted, telling the fiery conservative, ”If you’re going talk about race, at least — at least — know what you’re talking about.”
Coulter attempted to cut through the chaos, responding that “Mugged” is “not a book about black people” and that it is, instead, “a book about white liberals.”
