Whoopi: Trump ‘Cowardly’ For Debate Boycott — ‘You Are the Emperor That Has No Clothes’

Thursday on ABC’s “The View,”  while discussing Republican front runner Donald Trump not participating in tonight’s Fox News debate, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the move was “cowardly.”

Goldberg said, “I don’t think when Hillary goes to do her debates, she particularly wants to be asked about her personal life and her husband, but she does it, because that’s what you gotta do when you’re going to be president of the United States. I don’t think Megyn Kelly wants to sit there and look at a man who had his people say horrible stuff about her. She doesn’t necessarily want to sit there and deal with him, but she does, because it’s her job.”

She continued “You’re a coward, Donald. You’re a coward. It’s cowardly, because to me, you are the emperor that has no clothes on. Nobody wants to get the criticism, but this is the job. If you’re going to be president of the United States, you have to go and talk to the people that you may not like. You’re being cowardly, and I think people are starting to see what the presidency with you in it will look like.”

“I don’t know if the people in the United States, as they’re looking, want a guy who’s going to cut and run because he doesn’t like what he’s hearing.”

She added, “You talk about, ‘Obama hasn’t done this…’ He’s a stand-up guy; he stood and he took all this crap for eight years. so you’re gonna have to, Donald. You need to do your job, D.”
