Seemingly unsatisfied with the naked racist bigotry from “Sunny Hostin” earlier in the week, Whoopi Goldberg stepped it up by lashing out at South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) on Thursday’s edition of The View by playing to the homophobic smear that the Senator is a closeted homosexual. She was forced to make a non-apology where she called it a “joke” and quipped, “I should probably never do this show again” if people don’t get jokes anymore.
Goldberg’s attack came as White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was talking about Graham’s national 15-week abortion ban bill. “Senator Graham had said maybe about a month ago, early August, that he believes when it comes to marriage when it comes to abortion, it's for states to decide. So, Senator Graham, what changed?” she huffed.
“Maybe he's getting married,” Goldberg blurted out. She dabbled in the homophobic rhetoric by adding: “Do it quick because I know people are fooling around with our marriage rights. Whoever, wherever you stand.”
