Whoopi: ‘I Can’t Get Mad That the System Is Rigged Against the White Guy’ Bernie Sanders


Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” while commenting on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporters booing at the first night of the Democratic National Convention, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said she couldn’t “get mad that the system is rigged against the white guy.”

Goldberg said, “The DNC started out a little shaky between the DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz stepping down and Bernie Sanders supporters booing. I mean, so here’s — I’m just going to say this. All these wonderful young liberal people who are booing the first female that actually might become president, I don’t get it. Because you all like to talk about how the system is rigged. The system has been rigged forever. It’s been rigged against women for years.”

She added, “This idea you didn’t know the system was rigged—do your homework. It’s been rigged for years. But we were talking yesterday about what a party is supposed to do. I thought about it a lot, particularly what you said, and I think that I believe that the party is going to do whatever they can do to get the most electable candidate elected. I think that’s what they’re there to do. So stupidity reigns everywhere. Don’t look at any of my emails. I’m going through all kind—honey, ooh, I would not have a job if people saw my email, you know? So I can’t look at those and get mad. I can’t get mad that the system is rigged against the white guy. I can’t … I’m talking about Bernie.”
