Whoopi Goldberg has NEVER been a fan of President Trump and often belittles him with her buddies on “The View” every chance she gets to take a cheap shot.
That all changed on a recent episode where Whoopi and her co-hosts were discussing the incident involving the 3 UCLA basketball players who were arrested in China for shoplifting. Thanks to President Trump, all 3 players were immediately released, and everyone was grateful except for LaVar Ball who downplayed Trump’s involvement of his son LiAngelo Ball’s release.
In 2 seperate interviews, LaVar Ball said to ESPN that Trump had nothing to do with the players’ release and then told CNN that he didn’t thank President Trump for releasing his son because Trump didn’t offer for the players to ride back on Air Force One. President Trump immediately slammed “Ungrateful” LaVar Ball with this statement:
…LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!

In a recent episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg, of all people, defended President Trump regarding the handling of the incident. In the video that can be seen below, Goldberg chastised the “ridiculous stupidity” of the players. She made jokes to make a point about the players being tall and “black,” while trying to blend with the Chinese population as they attempted to get away with stealing. Goldberg then acknowledged the President’s involvement in the situation as she said:
“You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country and you embarrassed the president. Now, I’m not a big fan of the president, but the fact that he had to call and get your asses out of there is not anything to be proud of or think is cool.“
Here is the clip:
Wow! Strong words from Whoopi Goldberg as she defended Trump!
This is a major step for Whoopi, who just months ago talked about leaving the country if Trump won the election. It appears she and her co-hosts are warming up to President Trump more than ever! Who saw that coming? LaVar Ball, on the other hand, continues to look more and more ridiculous for not condemning his son’s actions and instead talks trash about our President.
