‘The View’ Offers Shocking ‘Apology,’ Well Sort Of…Whoopi Can’t Hold It In

“The View” is rarely apologetic, and this time an apology came with some qualifiers from their most radical host, Whoopi Goldberg. 

A co-host read an apology on Wednesday from “The View” to Turning Point USA (TPUSA). They were sorry for “anything we said that may have been unclear” about a neo-Nazi group that protested outside the group’s Student Action Summit.

“On Monday we talked about the fact there were openly neo-Nazi demonstrators outside the Florida Student Action Summit of the Turning Point USA group,” said Sara Haines, a journalist and host of “The Chase.” 

“We want to make clear these demonstrators were gathered outside the event and that they were not invited or endorsed by Turning Point USA. A Turning Point USA spokesman said the group 100% condemns those ideologies and said Turning Point USA security tried to remove the neo-Nazis from the area, but could not because they were on public property.” 

“Also Turning Point USA wanted to clarify – wanted us to clarify this was a Turning Point USA summit and not a Republican Party event,” Haines continued. “So we apologize for anything we said that may have been unclear on these points.”

“The View’s” network, ABC” was given a “cease and desist” letter on Tuesday according to Fox News. The notice cited comments made by co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg made on Monday’s show. 

“Neo-Nazis were out there in the front of the conference with antisemitic slurs and, you know, the Nazi swastika and a picture of a so-called Jewish person with exaggerated features, just like Goebbels did during the Third Reich,” Behar said Monday.

But after the so-called “apology” was read by Haines, Goldberg said that the TPUSA “let them in,” and she claimed that she was making a “metaphorical” point.

TPUSA spokesman Andrew Kolvet had this to say about what “The View” did, “Whoopi is the one who said it, She should be the one to offer the apology.”
