Whoopi Grimly Declares on The View: If Trump Is Reelected, ‘We Deserve What We Get’ For ‘Not Being Loud Enough’

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s The View, had a dire message for American voters if former President Donald Trump wins reelection in 2024: We — yes, we — did it to ourselves.

The first segment of Tuesday’s show covered the glowing health report by Trump’s doctor, which befuddled co-host Joy Behar who called Trump “a rambling, sweating clown” in a “girdle and golf pants.” But the conversation got more serious when co-host Sunny Hostin read the ex-president’s suggestion that the Republican National Committee “save money” by canceling all future GOP debates to “STOP THE STEAL.”

The hosts felt the statement amounted to Trump asking to be declared the winner of the GOP primary without ever holding a vote, something co-host Sara Haines couldn’t believe was going unchecked by other Republicans:I know the polling looks bleak, but when Donald Trump says things like, let’s stop, you know, let’s just jump to the end, just like you said, he doesn’t even know the RNC doesn’t pay for the debates. I don’t think he realizes, and only that makes sense in the mind of a Donald Trump that you could ever do that. We have we don’t even have the first primary until, caucus until January 15th in Iowa. There’s time. We have watched in the last several months how fast things change. Let’s give everyone a beat to know them.

We have known Donald Trump since the ’80s when he was an awful real estate person, then The Apprentice, and then a really bad president. But now all we hear about is the indictments. He has the microphone. Everyone knows who he is. We need to keep putting other people forward to give them alternatives. I don’t believe that when people get polled, they– I heard I read an article that said a lot of times they just vent about what makes them unhappy and it doesn’t necessarily lead to a vote in the booth. Let it play out.

Then Whoopi reminded everyone that this is not how democracy in the United States works:

Goldberg: I also want to point out the fact that that is not how we work as a government. We’re not a dictatorship. You can’t say, “Oh, it’s me,” so you can’t decide it’s you. The people have to decide it’s you. They’re not going to they’re not going to let you do that, and these are, it’s important to know that just because you want it to happen, it doesn’t happen that way. We have checks and balances, which has kept you in line.

Haines: It’s like talking to a toddler.

Goldberg: That’s what’s kept us from gone, going over the side.

Haines: You’re not always going to get what you want.

Goldberg: No, you’re not.

It’s not the first time Trump has been compared to a toddler, but Whoopi was serious about where the blame would fall if another Trump presidency happened:

Hostin: But if he gets reelected, he will destroy this country.

Goldberg: Well, listen, if he if he gets reelected, we deserve what we get.

Behar: We?!

Goldberg: Yes, we!

Behar: I’m not voting for him, don’t put me in there!

Goldberg: Listen, if we put him back in, if we put him, if he gets back in, we deserve what we got. Because it meant that we were not loud enough, or strong enough, or that our constitution wasn’t strong enough to keep this bozo out.
