Whoopi Goldberg got into a a heated spat with Donald Trump on Wednesday’s The View over President Barack Obama‘s birth certificate. How did it play out?
The Donald has been very open about the possibility of him running for president in 2012 and his Republican platform.
He has also been gaining attention for his comments questioning Obama’s citizenship.
“Why doesn’t he show his birth certificate?” Donald asked, via Huffington Post. “Why should he have to?”
Whoopi was noticeably taking deep breath, rolling her eyes and trying to keep calm, asking Donald why Obama should have to show his certificate.
“Because I have to and everybody else has to, Whoopi,” Donald fired back.
He did express that he believes Obama has a birth certificate, but believes by not showing it to the public, a “he has a terrible pall hanging over him.”
Donald did add that “nobody from [Obama’s] early years remembers him,” and that there was “something on that birth certificate that he doesn’t like.”
The comment of Obama hiding something certainly sent Whoopi and Barbara Walters over the edge.
“That’s a terrible thing to say,” Barbara said, as Whoopi sat next to her ready to explode.
“Oh my God… that’s the biggest pile of dog mess I’ve heard in ages,” Whoopi chimed in,”it’s not ’cause he’s black, is it?”
“Because I’ve never hear any white president being asked to show his birth certificate,” Whoopi continued, pounding her fist into her hand. “When you become the president of the United States of America, you know that he’s American. I’m sorry. That’s just B.S.”
