Whoopi Goldberg made an on-air apology on Thursday for her remarks on ABC’s “The View,” in which she linked Turning Point USA to a group of neo-Nazi protesters.
“In Monday’s conversation about Turning Point USA, I put the young people at the conference in the same category as the protesters outside,” Goldberg said on Thursday’s episode.
“I don’t like it when people make assumptions about me, and it’s not any better when I make assumptions about other people, which I did,” she continued. “So, my bad, I’m sorry.”
Goldberg and co-host Joy Behar commented about the neo-Nazi protest outside the TPUSA Student Action Summit last weekend in Tampa, Florida.
Insider reported that a group gathered outside the Tampa Convention Center with Nazi flags, swastikas, the SS logo, and antisemitic caricatures of Jews while the TPUSA Student Action Summit was taking place. Former President Donald Trump was the star speaker at the conservative gathering.
