"The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg kowtowed to President Joe Biden on Wednesday when a guest dared to blame him for the ongoing crises in the United States.
During a segment bashing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) and former President Donald Trump, guest Stephanie Grisham, a key player in the Trump administration, noted what the majority of Americans believe.
"I want to say this, though, the country’s not doing well," Grisham observed.
"So I think that Biden does need to get some stuff in order. We have got high gas prices. We do have inflation," she continued as Goldberg tried to interrupt. "Come to the Midwest. I invite anybody to come to the Midwest, where farmers can’t afford fertilizer, they can’t afford fuel. People really are suffering at the grocery store. There are a lot of things going on that I think could affect the polls."
Goldberg immediately seized on Grisham's accusation. According to Goldberg — whose net worth is estimated to be $60 million or more — "we're all suffering."
"And I would say this to you: Go to New Jersey. Go to upstate New York. Go anywhere in the state of New York. Go to the state of New Jersey. Go anywhere in the states. We’re all suffering!" Goldberg claimed.

Goldberg then defended Biden from the economic problems facing Americans right now, such as record-high gas prices.
"I'll tell you, everybody is suffering. But let’s place it in the places that it belongs. OK?" she said. "Gas prices aren’t bad because of anything Biden did. It’s just what he’s going to absorb."
Sunny Hostin added to the defense, "There’s also a war going on in Ukraine." Goldberg agreed, "There’s a war going on, and everybody said, this is what we got to do. So we’re in the middle of it."
And the baby formula shortage? Goldberg claimed "Abbott" is responsible, most likely a reference to the baby formula manufacturer.
"People want baby food, baby stuff. That is also not on him. That’s on Abbott," Goldberg claimed. "But I noticed when people talk about these things, specifically what you were just saying, nobody ever says, here’s the cause of this, and here’s how we have to fight this."
Grisham is right. Americans believe the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction, which explains dismal polling for Democrats.
Biden's favorability is under water by an average of 13 points, according to RealClearPolitics, and all signs point toward a red tsunami this November, especially if Biden and Democrats continue to abdicate responsibility for the problems ailing Americans.
Editor's note: This story has been updated to clarify that Goldberg's reference to "Abbott" is most likely directed at the baby formula manufacturer. The story originally said it was in reference to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. Goldberg did not clarify in her remarks on "The View."
