Former Presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson visited The View earlier this week. It wasn’t long into the interview until Whoopi Goldberg asked Carson why he was backing Donald Trump.
As Carson tried to defend his decision to back Trump, the ladies continued to fire questions his way about Trump’s comments on race and women. Carson explained that he could look at just one topic, but instead he chooses to look at a bigger picture. Goldberg, who was clearly frustrated said, “You’re Ben Carson! You’re so much better than this!”
Carson continued to defend his choices and said, “You have to look at the good and the bad.” Goldberg responded, “I’m sorry. He’s a racist, and he’s not good for the country. And I’m sorry, I just don’t understand.”
Trump was apparently watching the interview and took to Twitter to voice his opinions about the talk show. Trump said, “Explain how the women on The View, which is a total disaster since the great Barbara Walters left, ever got their jobs. @abc is wasting time.”
