Former Mayor of NYC, Rudy Giuliani, got Whoopi Goldberg heated on The View. Whoopi definitely had much to say about him and his remarks about President Obama and “not loving America.”
Goldberg is known for her opinionated, outspoken stance. She’s not afraid to let you know what she’s thinking, when she’s thinking and for how long she’s been thinking it. Rudy Giuliani is no exception.
It began with Giuliani saying that President Obama doesn’t love America. Specifically, he states as follows.
“Every modern president has had a grasp on American battles, abroad, while Obama does not. I felt that from every American president, including ones I disagree with, even Jimmy Carter. I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you, and he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up with you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.”
After hearing of this, Whoopi became livid, and when her eyebrows go down, it’s time to speak.

While on The View, Whoopi chimed in during a discussion, stating as follows.
“During a private dinner, featuring business execs and conservative media, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani reportedly said that he believes President Obama does not love America. He says it was because he wasn’t brought up with a love of the country.
“Really?? Were you in the nursery with him when his mother was with him? Shut up, Rudy! You can disagree with the president all you want to. Don’t start talking about who loves America and who doesn’t. You don’t know what you’re talking about. And to say that he wasn’t brought up like y’all were brought up, I don’t know what that means. I’m sure it’s not racial, because that’s not you [Giuliani], is it??
“I’m sorry. I get that you don’t like him. I understand that…this is from me. And I’m on a ‘soapbox,’ I don’t know. But I don’t like when people start pointing fingers and saying, ‘You don’t love America’. We are all Americans. We are all busting our a**es trying to get our lives together, including the president. So back up! You don’t like him, that’s okay. Don’t start talking about his love of the country.”
Goldberg shared those statements with plenty emotion. What do you think? Is Whoopi Goldberg right or wrong for her expression?
