Whoopi Goldberg, star co-host of ABC’s “The View,” has now missed six straight episodes after blackface photos of co-host Joy Behar resurfaced in the midst of the scandal involving Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam
“Unfortunately Whoopi is still sick, I’m sorry,” said Behar at the opening of Tuesday’s show. “Whoopi, we miss you. I hope you’re watching and I can’t wait for you to get back here.”
Wednesday, Goldberg was absent again, and again Behar offered a similar message.
“So, um, unfortunately Whoopi is still on the mend and hopefully she’ll be here soon,” Behar said Wednesday. “She’s not feeling great, but she’ll be back, maybe soon.”
Behar quickly segued into bashing President Donald J. Trump, the everlasting theme of the ghoulish cast of the daytime talk show.
As Big League Politics reported, Goldberg was absent beginning last Wednesday, just after blackface photos of Behar re-emerged in national media. The show maintains that Goldberg is simply ill, but the timing of her absence is raising eyebrows.
On Monday, Big League Politics followed up on our original story:
Star co-host of ABC’s “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg, missed her fourth straight show Monday morning, coinciding with the resurfacing of co-host Joy Behar’s blackface photo last week.
