Whoopi Goldberg Gets Bleeped Arguing Herman Cain’s Private Life Isn’t Politically Relevant
With the pressure hitting the Herman Cain campaign increasing as his sexual harassment accusations give way to new philandering claims, the debate over whether his personal failings should matter in politics was the topic du jour at The View. Somewhat surprisingly, it was Whoopi Goldberg who seemed to care the least about his personal life, noting that “as long as you are not boning the country,” she didn’t mind the action on the side. And with that, Goldberg got bleeped, and finally has something in common with Ann Coulter.
While Sherri Shepherd found something of his character to be in question given the allegations, Goldberg and Elisabeth Hasselbeck argued that it is possible to be a good businessperson without being a good person in a moral way. “A relationship with another person is vastly different than running a country,” Goldberg argued, “you’re having problems in your relationship, you need to see a therapist… as long as you’re not [bleep]ing the country…”
At that the table erupted in laughter before continuing the debate, citing Presidents in the past with moral failings and Hasselbeck proposing a Gingrich-esque question: “Can you have two loves? Maybe they love business so much they can’t exactly be faithful,” a remark with spurs Goldberg into song.
