Whoopi Goldberg Uses False Claim to Compare Trump to Nazi Death Camp Doctor

Whoopi Goldberg falsely claimed Trump suggested children should 'drink bleach'

The far-left host of ABC's "The View," Whoopi Goldberg, falsely claimed during a Monday segment that Presdient Donald Trump suggested children should "drink bleach" as a treatment for COVID-19.

Goldberg then used the horrific fabricated claim to compare President Trump to the infamous Nazi death camp doctor, Josef Mengele.

Dr. Mengele tortured and murdered Holocaust victims at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

After spreading the lies about Trump's statement, Goldberg then noted that Mengele was the “last person that really even suggested anyone use bleach.”

Goldberg set the foundation for her anti-Trump rant by claiming the president suggested people should drink bleach to treat the coronavirus.

After making this monstrously false claim, she then expanded on it by suggesting "Trump's advice" was meant for children, despite the presdient never even making such remarks.

“Well, I have to say the reason that the story is still in the news is if you have little kids, you have to constantly explain to them, no, you cannot drink bleach," Goldberg said after establishing the fake narrative.

"You cannot do this. You know, the last person that really even suggested anyone use bleach was a man called Dr. Mengele, and he did bad things to people.

"So we don’t discuss bleach,” she continued.

"I have all of the compassion for everybody because it’s not an easy job, but one of those journalists sitting there should have stood up and said,

"No, sir, that is a dangerous thing to say because you can actually kill people.”

Referencing Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, Goldberg said, “She should have said, 'No, sir', and yes, she should have jumped up.

"That’s part of the reason they’re there.

"They’re there to protect us and to make sure we are getting the facts, and it wasn’t a joke because that’s not how you do a joke.

"You say at the moment, you know, well, why not this? I’m just kidding.

"That’s how you do that. You don’t say, 'Oh, I was just kidding' the next day.

"He made a mistake. Nobody called him on it, and she didn’t really call him on it.

"She didn’t really call him on it. She should have said, 'No, sir'.

"No one can ingest bleach ever because it kills.

"That’s what they needed to do, and nobody did it.

"So, you know, that’s all I have to say."

At no point has President Trump ever advised anybody to "ingest bleach" for anything.

Nor has he ever said "'Oh, I was just kidding' the next day" about those fabricated remarks.

Goldberg appears to have been further twisting false claims that emerged in the media last week.

During a White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing last Thursday, President Trump spoke of new developments concerning the treatment of COVID-19 using light and disinfectants to kill the virus.

The president said the treatments sounded promising and urged more research on the topic.

He made that suggestion after having listened to the results of a study into the coronavirus that was presented by the Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary for Science and Technology William Bryan.

"Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus, both surfaces and in the air," Bryan told reporters attending the daily news conference.

As temperature and humidity rise, the half-life of the coronavirus drops, he said.

"Now, you inject the sun, the half-life goes from six hours to two minutes."

Speaking in response, Trump said the research "sounds interesting" and asked if the light was applied inside the body "by injection inside."

The media jumped on the comments, however, falsely and dangerously claiming that Trump urged Americans to inject themselves with disinfectant to treat the coronavirus.

Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories debunked the claims, however, and did so way before Whoopi Goldberg's rant.

"While Trump has been taken [to] task over his comments at the news conference, the accusations are false," Lead Stories stated in their review of media claims.

"He did not urge people to do anything -- he just said such methods of ridding the coronavirus should be examined."
