Whoopi Goldberg demands Homeland Security stage Trump intervention
Speaking on ‘The View’ on Monday, Goldberg and her fellow presenters competed to see who could be the most enraged about Trump’s behavior at the Helsinki summit with Putin.
John McCain’s daughter Megan got the most words in, addressing National Security Advisor John Bolton and the Trump administration. “Are you an America first, do you not believe in genocide? Or are you going to allow the chemical gassing of children right now?”
However, it was Goldberg’s call for the Department of Homeland security to step in that won out in the end.
TRUMP, PUTIN MEET IN HELSINKI: As the two leaders sit down for a one-on-one meeting today, the co-hosts discuss what this means for our relationship with Russia, and what message it sends to the rest of the world. https://t.co/f8u2wc159Spic.twitter.com/X9BbuhhdIc— The View (@TheView) July 16, 2018
“If this was anybody else, If this was anybody else, Homeland Security would be involved all kinds of stuff. Where is Homeland Security?” Goldberg said. “This man, to me – This, I feel endangers the country. Our country, America. I don’t like this, I don’t like it, I don’t like what he’s done, I don’t like this whole last trip. I’m just saying.” she said.
Goldberg's comments are the latest borderline hysterical outbursts to come from those horrified by Trump’s so-called "disloyalty to the US intelligence agencies". Representative Steve Cohen (D-Tenn) on Monday wondered, “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!”

I assume you mean: why aren't members of the military sounding off on this? Not. Why isn't the military taking up positions to take out the POTUS? Because it's not totally clear https://t.co/yjKgZz8pqJ— Christopher D. White (@ZanderKelly30) July 16, 2018
His tweet was taken by some as a call for a coup against the president, although it is unclear what he meant. When a reporter queried whether Cohen meant, “Why aren’t members of the military sounding off on this?” he responded, “Of course.”
