An uncomfortable moment unfolded on “The View” on Thursday when a defiant Whoopi Goldberg was forced to explain a “joke” about Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., in an earlier segment that appeared to allude to gay marriage.

After White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre lit into Graham over his call for a federal limit on abortions after 15 weeks, she asked “what changed” with him, since Graham had earlier declared issues like abortion and marriage should be left up to the states.

“Maybe he’s getting married,” Goldberg said bluntly, as the panel and audience laughed.

As the audience and other hosts laughed awkwardly, Goldberg added, “do it quick because, I know people are fooling around with our marriage rights.”

Her comments were seen as an attack on Graham, who is a lifelong bachelor. Many on the left have mocked him and attacked him with crude jokes, claiming he is secretly gay.

Later, Whoopi tried to clean it up, claiming her attack on Graham was only “a joke.”

“I was doing what I was doing as a comic, sometimes I make jokes. It was a joke… nothing more than that,” she said. “I just had a whole conversation about people misunderstanding the joke.”

“I should probably never do this show again, if this is what it’s coming to! It was a joke, guys,” she added.

  1. Oh, yes….smear someone if the opposition party and explain that it was a joke! Sounds like it came out of the leftist playbook rules that allows you to do and say things that YOU would find offensive and usually reprimand the right for implying. Honestly, Whoopi and her, so called, VIEW is not pretty anymore nor interesting (haven’t watched it for years) and it time to EXIT!
    Just my opinion but the blasting that reverberates daily from these characters is exhausting and frankly, stupid!

  2. “I should probably never do this show again, if this is what it’s coming to! It was a joke, guys,” she added. NAAHHHH. It wasn’t a joke you ugly seahag…..practice what you preach. No one will ever miss your fugly face.
