Whoopi Goldberg: Right to 'Impeach Trump' is the Reason Soldiers Keep Fighting
Actor addresses impeachment of Trump with 'history lesson'
Actor and co-host on “The View” Whoopi Goldberg claimed on Tuesday that impeaching President Donald Trump is the very fabric of America.
Goldberg addressed the impeachment of Trump by citing fundamental freedoms for which Americans fought to protect.
The actor's comment came after co-host Meghan McCain used the phrase “America’s funeral” to talk about impeachment.
“This is not a funeral,” Goldberg said.
“Listen, you have to go pretty hard to destroy us. You have to do it really hard to destroy this country, but there are too many people who fought too hard for too long to let that happen, and that’s why we are celebrating the Constitution," she added.
"We are celebrating our rights as Americans to say something’s wrong.”
Following a short applause from the audience, Goldberg continued:
"This is our right,” she said.
“That’s why your dad fought. That’s why your brothers fight. That’s why my father and grandfather fought, and my mom and everybody else. That’s why they fought."
“They fought for our right to say, ‘You can’t do it this way.’ We have a whole list of stuff that you’re supposed to follow.”
Goldberg then attempted to disguise her anti-Trump sentiment by claiming that impeachment is not a positive development for the nation.

“So, before we went on the air this morning, House Democrats made it official and laid out the articles of impeachment against you-know-who,” she said.
“No, no, this is not a celebratory moment. This is not a good thing.”
“When he’s out, then we’ll clap,” co-host Joy Behar said.
“Maybe you can clap then, but still, this is not — it wasn’t good when it happened to [Richard] Nixon. It wasn’t good when it happened to [Bill] Clinton. And this is not good. This is not good,” Goldberg said.
“But in order to keep our nation on point, we must do the due diligence that the Constitution requires.”
Last month, Whoopi Goldberg was shut down by guest Donald Trump Jr. as he called out her "hypocrisy" by noting her downplaying director Roman Polanski's sexual assault of a minor.
"Whoopi, you said that Roman Polanski… it wasn’t 'rape-rape,' when he raped a child."
