Whoopie Goldberg took a break from debating politics with her co-hosts on Tuesday’s episode of The View to slam Kanye West for admitting he didn’t vote in the presidential election.
During a discussion about the aftermath of Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery, the ladies revealed what they would really like to see the E! reality star talking about when the show returns.
“What I would like to see on ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’]is Kim arguing with Kanye over you know who,” said Joy Behar, referencing Donald Trump, “because Kanye said he would have voted for him. That I would like to see.”
But Goldberg took it a step further, getting visibly angry as she scolded West for admitting he didn’t vote at all in the election.
“I would like her to say to him, ‘Listen, don’t you ever think that saying you didn’t vote was a good idea,'” she emphatically said. “‘Don’t you ever think that that was good. I don’t care who you would have voted for. People died for your right to not vote you idiot boy. You foolish boy. Idiot boy. Don’t ever say that again!”
The show cut to commercial after Goldberg’s outburst, which got major applause from the studio audience.
he didn’t vote
As Gossip Cop reported, in November West said in a concert rant that he would have voted for Donald Trump, but did not actually cast a ballot. While the revelation was much discussed at the time, it came back up now during “Hot Topics” on “The View.” The co-hosts were talking about Kim Kardashian’s robbery being a plot point on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” when Joy Behar revealed the storyline she’d like to watch.
“What I would like to see is her arguing with Kanye about you-know-who, because Kanye said he would have voted for him,” she shared. “That I would like to see.” Goldberg didn’t disagree, but went a lot harder.
The moderator announced, “You know what I would like to see? I would like her to say to him, ‘Listen, don’t you ever think that saying you didn’t vote what was a good idea. Don’t ever think that that was — I don’t care who you would’ve voted for. Don’t you ever say that, because people died for your right to not vote, you idiot boy! You foolish boy! Idiot boy! Don’t ever say that again!’”
While Goldberg may have a point, Kardashian, of course, is not her husband’s keeper. The comedienne previously ripped West last month for meeting with Trump. Watch the new clip below.
