Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ‘The View,’ has now threatened violence if she hears another Republican senator say their heart was broken or mention “thoughts and prayers.”
WATCH Whoopi say it on video:
Whoopi Goldberg was reacting to the sad news of a school shooting that happened in Uvalde, Texas, at Robb Elementary School, where at least 19 students and two adults were shot dead. The shooter, an 18-year-old, was also shot dead by a border agent who rushed into the school.
Goldberg was talking about how she’s tired of hearing politicians give “thoughts and prayers” and she specifically mentioned Republicans during her response to the shooting tragedy.
She used a video clip of Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) calling for gun control within hours of the shooting — and he ended his emotional speech with a question, saying “what are we doing?”
Whoopi said: “So that’s the question. What are we doing? Because we’re – why are we always at square one with this? And I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’m going to punch somebody.”
“I can’t take any — thoughts and prayers. If your thoughts and prayers really were with everybody, you would have done something by now,” Goldberg insisted, adding, “What the hell is going on?
Joy Behar chimed in asking for people to stop gaslighting her and commented on mental illness.
Joy said: “I want them to stop gaslighting me also… Stop saying it’s not guns that kill people. It’s people that kill people. It’s guns that kill people, okay? Stop saying the opposite… There’s mental illness in every country in the world, and they don’t have this problem. So stop gaslighting me on that one, and stop saying that you can have a good guy stop a bad guy with a gun… We have seen in both of these shootings in the past three weeks that a good guy tried and could not do it.”
Bill Melugin of Fox News reported on Twitter: “NEW: Border Patrol sources tell me an elite BORTAC Border Patrol agent is believed to have shot and killed the gunman at Robb Elementary School today. I’m told he entered with a tactical team while TX LEOs were engaged w/ barricaded shooter. Agent was injured.“
