Whoopi Goldberg: Trump Memo to TV Producers ‘Out of the Fascists’ Playbook’

Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said a letter sent by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign to television producers asking them not to give air time to politicians who said there was evidence of collusion between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign was “out of the fascists’ playbook.”

The memo named Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), former director of the Central Intelligence Agency John Brennan, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).

Goldberg said, “So you know who is wasting no time sort of capitalizing on the Mueller report, even though we haven’t read it yet. He’s attacking the media as the enemy of the people on Twitter, again. And his campaign sent a letter to TV producers asking them to strongly consider keeping anyone off the air saying there was evidence of collusion. Calling them outrageous and unsupported claims. The letter lists some politicians and public figures by name. But you know, when those kinds of lists, enemies list is kind of out of the fascists’ playbook. You want to be careful naming people the enemy of the people.”
