Whoopi Fires Back at Fiorina for Slamming ‘The View’: ‘We Welcomed You’

Monday on ABC’s “The View,” the latest in the back-and-forth between Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and the women of “The View” included an aggressive tone from co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who chose to ignore the insults they hurled at Fiorina’s “demented” face last week after the debate while promoting Fiorina’s upcoming appearance on “The View” on Friday.

Goldberg, instead of addressing the double standard on the appearance of conservative women, attacked Fiorina as ungrateful for her last appearance, saying, “Carly will be here on Friday. Now, I will not—but I do want to point out, Carly, that the last time you were here, and you’ll see B-roll running, we welcomed you to our table. We helped raise your profile so you would be included in the sea of men. There were no—you weren’t worried about any kind of Republican backlash. Nobody was backlashing. We were respectful and gave you your due. So just so we’re all clear, you have to know the difference between when somebody’s coming for you and when somebody is paying you a compliment and when somebody is saying, ‘Here’s my observation.’ If you get that together, maybe you can be president.”
