Whoopi Goldberg: I’m More Qualified to Be President than Donald Trump


On Monday’s episode of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said she’s more informed and capable of being President of the United States than current President-elect Donald Trump.

“Here’s the difference, when I speak, at least you know that I’ve actually looked stuff up, so people think that I might be more aware,” Goldberg said. “People know that I’ve had a wide variety of lives, so they think I might know some stuff.”

Trump, Goldberg says, is a man that “doesn’t seem to do the homework, who doesn’t seem to have any idea how things actually run.”

“When you bring up Hillary, I can only think to myself she may not have been the best candidate for people, but I know she knew what she was doing,” Goldberg said of the former Democratic presidential nominee.

Co-host Jedediah Bila suggested Clinton wasn’t qualified to be president because she put America’s national security at risk when she used a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

Clinton “didn’t do her homework,” Goldberg responded.

While the co-hosts of The View argued which candidate was qualified to be president, voting was underway in the Electoral College as state electors cast their ballots for the presidency.

At press time, Trump had 304 votes, securing his place in history as America’s 45th president.
