GOP Hypocrisy

Whoopi Goldberg Eviscerates ‘Ignorant as Hell’ Lindsey Graham for Defending Herschel Walker

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) really hit a wrong note with the co-hosts of The View when he said the Republican Party isn’t racist because Herschel Walker is running on the GOP ticket.

“They’re beating our guys up, but what is it about this guy?” Graham said. “He changes the entire narrative of the left. We’re a party of racists. The Republican Party is racist. What happens when the Republican Party elects and nominates Herschel Walker, an African-American, Black Heisman trophy winner, right? Olympian. It destroys the whole narrative.”

Whoopi Goldberg was understandably upset at Graham’s comment because it’s abjectly racist and can be likened to saying “I can’t be racist, some of my best friends are Black,” Raw Story reports.

“Here’s the thing you need to know,” Goldberg said. “Just because we see a Black person does not mean we do ‘monkey see, monkey do.’ And I’m sure that you don’t know how insulting that is, but let us just say to you, don’t ever say that again because you look as ignorant as hell. Don’t do that. I mean, you know, it doesn’t work that way. It may work that way for you because we know what you are doing, okay? We know what you are up to, but we don’t just go get people because they look the right way. We actually have to find the people that can actually do the damn job. That’s what we want.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin shared Goldberg’s sentiments and added that from the very beginning of the race, it became quite clear that Republicans thought they could beat Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) who won the special election in January 2021, by finding another Black person to run against him.

“I think that’s the sad thing about this: I think the sad thing about this is, you know, Herschel Walker is woefully underqualified for this job and the only reason he was chosen and also supported by Trump is that Raphael Warnock, the Senator in Georgia is Black and they wanted someone who is Black to confront him, to oppose him.”

“Because we can’t tell each other apart,” Goldberg interjected.

“Exactly! And — I think it’s sad that the GOP is using Herschel Walker in the way that he’s letting himself be used because I really do think he’s being used and I think he probably has,” Hostin explained.

“I think willingly,” Goldberg responded.

This comes as another woman has come forward this week that Walker also pressured her into an abortion, even to the point of driving her to the clinic. Walker has claimed he’s “pro-life” but folks are of course calling him a hypocrite for professing to be a conservative man of God while obviously acting the exact opposite in his personal life.

Co-host Sara Haines added that as a “flawed character” Walker could have claimed to have found Jesus and that he’s now a different person.

“He’s literally a flawed character and the thing that blows my mind is all you would have to say if you were Herschel Walker is ‘This happened and this was the best decision for us at the time. I am a changed man. I’ve gone to church. I have been saved by the Lord. People would be, like, ‘Oh my gosh! You’re amazing.”

But, Haines pointed out, this isn’t the only thing he’s lied about. She noted he’s even told untruths about things that are completely verifiable facts, like pretending to be a police officer or a sheriff, graduating at the top of his class in college, running companies, and so on. The dude has told some tall tales, he has.

Even Alyssa Farah Griffin, the show’s lone Republican, noted that Democrats are regularly criticized for “playing identity politics” when that’s exactly what Republicans are doing with Walker.

“He was not the most qualified candidate by any means to run and what frustrates me is we have multiple accusers,” Griffin said. “I think 10 or 15 could come forward and it wouldn’t change the fact that Republicans have decided he’s wearing the jersey so, we’re standing by him. It’s disappointing to me that that’s what politics has gone to, is win at all costs regardless of the qualifications.”

That’s exactly what Republicans are doing. Donald Trump was definitely the wrong choice for president but by and large, they stood by him no matter what.

We now know where that led.
