A newly surfaced clip is going viral this week showing conservative commentator Ben Shapiro mopping the floor with Whoopi Goldberg for disrespecting President Donald Trump on her liberal talk show “The View.”
Whoopi loves nothing more than bashing Trump every day on her ABC talk show, but Shapiro could finally take her nonsense no longer when she compared the president to the Taliban.
“We have had a leader who’s repeatedly demeaned women, wants to defund organizations that benefit women, calling on the media to shut up, specifically wants to give preferential treatment based on religion,” Whoopi said, according to The Hill. “Are these values really much different than the Taliban’s?”
Whoopi then doubled down on this claim by saying Trump’s approach to dealing with the mainstream media is much like the Taliban’s.
“If you’re saying to the media shut up — that’s what [the Taliban] do. Maybe they didn’t start out chopping people’s heads off, maybe they started out differently,” she said. “Because we’re saying to people, here are our American values, and then we’re saying on the same token stuff that sounds exactly like the stuff we’re fighting.”
“So the question is, when you put some of these things side by side—what kind of religion you’re supposed to have, you’re supposed to have one religion,” said Whoopi. “When he says there’s preferential treatment for Christians, forgetting the other religions out there…You know here’s the thing, we have a Constitution that says these are the things that we don’t do. This is what makes us different from everybody else. Our media, nobody tells our media to shut up and just take it. Nobody. That’s not American. That is the Taliban…My question is, what’s happening?”
Shapiro pointed out that this is just the latest example of a member of the mainstream media going way over the top in criticizing Trump. It’s moronic statements like this one from Whoopi that have caused millions of Americans to lose all faith in the mainstream media. How can the media be taken seriously when they rare comparing Trump to the Taliban and to Nazis on a daily basis?
