The View finally got something right. ABC’s liberal-loving, cancel-culture promoting, daytime talk show has done the unthinkable. It suspended one of their own.
The network announced late Tuesday that, effective immediately, Whoopi Goldberg was being suspended for two weeks because of insensitive comments she made about the Holocaust on Monday’s program.
“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” Kim Godwin, ABC News’ president said in a statement. “While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments.”
BREAKING: Whoopi Goldberg SUSPENDED from The View for 2 weeks after bizarre rant on air claiming “the Holocaust isn’t about race”

Goldberg, 66, left viewers and her cohosts stunned on Monday when she insisted that the Holocaust “isn’t about race.” Even the liberal ladies of The View couldn’t believe what they were hearing.
“What is it about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about,” said Goldberg.
Moments later, Goldberg doubled down on her own stupidity by stating that Nazis and Jews “are two white groups of people.”
Hours after her head-scratching comments struck a chord with the Jewish community and any person with common sense, or even a nominal understanding of world history, Goldberg appeared on The Late Show and issued a half-assed apology.
“I thought we were having a discussion,” Goldberg said to host Stephen Colbert. “I think of race as being something that I can see… You couldn’t tell who was Jewish. They had to delve deeply to figure it out… My point is, they had to do the work.”
Thankfully, ABC wasn’t about to allow Goldberg to play the victim, and it wasted little time handing down her suspension.
“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends and communities,” added Godwin via the network’s statement.
Gone, gone at last. Whoop-dee-doo!
