On Thursday’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg joined the chorus of Democrats outraged by FBI Director James Comey’s firing by President Trump.
She said that his dismissal “feels kind of coup-y,”
“Does this feel like a coup to anybody? It just feels like a coup," Goldberg said. "First, the whole Justice Department got – everybody got gutted, all the things got gutted. It just feels — and he got all the generals — it feels kind of coup-y.”
“The View” hosts attempted to draw a connection between Trump’s meeting with Russian diplomats, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Ambassador Kislyak, on Wedneday, and his decision to fire Comey.
Co-host Joy Behar went so far as to call the private meeting “treason.”
“Guess who’s missing from that room? The American press,” Behar said. “This is treason to me. This is un-American, unpatriotic. Americans should be furious!”
“Pay less attention to who’s going to leave or who’s not going to leave,” said Whoopi, saying that the focus should be on Comey's replacement, who will head the Bureau’s investigation into Russia and allegations of collusion with the Trump campaign.
“It doesn’t matter if Comey’s gone,” she went on. “It doesn’t matter how it went down. It went down. And it’s kind of shady but, we say O.K. We cannot lose focus on the timing,” suggesting like Sen. Schumer that Trump’s decision to fire Comey was “part of a cover up.”
