Whoopi Goldberg defended Hasan Minhaj, saying that comics embellish stories because real life wouldn't be as 'interesting.'

"That’s what we do. We tell stories and then we embellish them," Goldberg said, referring to comedians. "If you’re going to hold a comic to the point where you’re going to check up on their stories, you have to understand a lot of it is not the exact thing that happened because why would we tell exactly what happened? It ain’t that interesting."

"There’s information that we will give you as comics that will have grains of truth, but don’t take it to the bank," she noted. "That’s our job, a seed of truth. Sometimes truth and sometimes total BS."

Hasan Minhaj said that he tells the 'emotional truth' of a story while exaggerating other parts of it.

On the Tuesday, September 19, installment of America Reports, the political commentator — who is widely known as just Kennedy — called the Ghost actress "a bloated fartbag" and claimed that "most of what she says is irrelevant and untrue."

"She was know a lot about spinning falsehoods," Kennedy added.

However, her rant took a turn when she admitted that she actually agreed with Goldberg in this situation before she began venting about politicians and other public figures.

"The people we should be holding accountable when they lie are people who lie about their heritage, like Elizabeth Warren, or their military service, like Richard Blumenthal," Kennedy continued. "There are plenty of politicians, you know George Santos comes to mind, you know, that professional volleyball player who was a backup dancer for Madonna last week."

"It’s not like people are going to his show because he’s raising money to end racism. He’s making people laugh," she said. "And so if he’s stretching the truth or filling it out or adding color to it, I don’t have a problem with that. Like, all is forgiven if it’s funny."
