Whoopi Goldberg: ‘I can’t’ say Donald Trump’s name

In an interview with CNN’s David Axelrod on “The Axe Files,” Whoopi Goldberg said she can’t bring herself to use Donald Trump’s name in conjunction with the word, “President.”

“I can’t wrap my mind around” his being the nation’s commander-in-chief, she said, even though she acknowledges that he’s “the man in charge.”

“You never say his name?” Axelrod asked.

“I don’t,” she said.

“Why?” Axelrod pressed.

“I can’t,” Goldberg responded.

“But you recognize that he is the president?” Axelrod later asked.

“You know, he’s there. You know,” she said.

“Listen, this is the first time where I can’t wrap my mind around this — and that people felt the need to put this in.

“So, yeah, I know people don’t like that I don’t do it,” she added. “I’m fine with that.

“There is lots of stuff I do people don’t like. I can live with it.”

CNN added:

Goldberg, a native New Yorker who appeared along with Trump in the 1994 “Little Rascals” movie, described their relationship as one that had been “cordial,” but told Axelrod that she had been “deeply” bothered over the years by Trump’s outspoken comments, especially “the nonsense about whether Barack Obama was an American citizen.”

“I know he went to school and I know he knows that Hawaii was part of the United States. And I know that the real bottom line of that conversation was how can he be our president, and it’s like listen, man.  He won,” she said.

Asked by Axelrod to respond to Trump’s assertion that he is the “least racist person you know,” Goldberg retorted that “in his mind, he probably is,” adding that she believed the President has an inherent belief that there are inferior people to him.

“You know, you keep — you keep saying you’re not racist and then you do racist stuff.  And then you hear racist things and you don’t say ‘Hey, that’s not how we talk here.’  So for me, he has a lot of issues.  But I — I always said he had issues,” she said.

Keep in mind this is the same Whoopi Goldberg who once said that Communism is a “great concept” that “makes perfect sense” on paper.
