Paula Faris Attempts to Say Attacks Post Election Are on ‘Both Sides’, Entire ‘View’ Panel Shuts Her Down  

On the Nov. 18 edition of ABC’s “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg comments on the latest reports claiming President-elect Donald Trump will appoint Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.

Atlanta Black Star reported today that Sessions have had multiple incidents where he has made racial comments and used disparaging language aimed at minorities.

The Republican lawmaker reportedly called the NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and other groups advocating for Black rights “un-american.” In other instances, Sessions confessed that his only issue with the Ku Klux Klan is that they smoke marijuana.

“The View” co-hosts also pointed out that Sessions allegedly called Black federal prosecutor Thomas H. Figures a “boy.”

However, the segment gets heated after co-host Paula Faris’ expressed optimism over news that Trump will meet with 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Goldberg snaps back at the woman, “I’m sorry baby, when you see these—I’m an optimist too. This does not make me optimistic, this pisses me off.”

Goldberg adds that she is fed up with people talking about putting things behind them. The Native Americans who were here before everybody had trouble … If you are talking about it’s a backwards move to do civil rights, why are you even running. Why don’t you just stay home?”

The comedienne further elaborates on her point that minorities are entitled to this country as much as white people.

“Black people are not going anywhere, they are not going to be slaves anymore so get that out of your head. Muslims, who were born here as Americans, are not going anywhere. We’re not going anywhere, I don’t know why you don’t get this part.”
