Whoopi Goldberg blew up at media during Thursday’s broadcast of “The View,” slamming anyone who dared to question President Joe Biden’s mental acuity after he called for a recently-deceased Congresswoman at a Wednesday White House event.

Biden, hosting a conference on hunger, called for Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (R-IN) — despite the fact that she passed away in a car accident last month — in order to recognize her for her work on the issue.

Goldberg unleashed her fury during the ABC midday talk show, responding to Biden’s flub and the subsequent number of media outlets that questioned White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about it during Wednesday’s briefing.


“You know, my gosh, come on,” Goldberg shook her head, going on to claim that reporters were only concerned with Biden’s flub because he was doing so well on other issues that they couldn’t attack him.

“You can’t go after him for, you know, not giving aid to Florida, or not tackling the infrastructure, and he’s giving aid to Ukraine, so you can’t go after him for that but you can go after him for forgetting that someone has passed,” Goldberg continued. “I mean, she passed last month not, like, a hundred years ago, okay?”

Her co-hosts quickly piled on, with Joy Behar claiming that former President Donald Trump had believed Frederick Douglass was still alive and Sara Haines chalking the gaffe up to a “brain fart” or “mommy brain.” She explained that everyone made mistakes like that from time to time, but that Jean-Pierre had likely made the situation worse when she kept repeating that Biden did not forget that Walorski had passed, and had asked for her because she was “top of mind.”


Co-host Sunny Hostin then blamed “ageism” for the fact that Americans were concerned when their president appeared not to be aware that the woman he was asking for was deceased.

“You go to other countries and our elders are revered,” she complained. “I hate that about this country!”

New Republican co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin defended Biden by saying that he had been “gaffe-prone” for his entire career in public office, even going so far as to say that it was an “endearing” quality.


“I know this table, and myself, do not want to see Donald Trump as President,” Griffin continued, asking whether the others believed — all things considered — that President Biden was the best-equipped to beat Trump in a potential 2024 match-up.

“If this is any indication, I do,” Goldberg insisted.
