Democratic Georgia Senator-elect Raphael Warnock had a liberal guardian angel in Whoopi Goldberg when she stopped co-host Meghan McCain from questioning him about the liberal extremism on a Wednesday episode of “The View.”

McCain was not pulling punches when she questioned how his campaign talk of unity would play out when Democrats are plotting moves to stay in power indefinitely.  “You know, I watched the race closely just like everyone else, and you talked a lot about unity on the campaign trail and the need to unify the country and unify Georgians, but progressives across the country are celebrating that your election could mean adding two states, eliminating the filibuster, and packing the Supreme Court with more members,” McCain started. 

“Your colleague Joe Manchin has joined with Republicans to reject those ideas. Chuck Schumer this morning tweeted, ‘buckle up.’ So you can understand how hard it’s hard for Republicans like me to believe in the spirit of unity, and I want to know, will you do the same thing as Joe Manchin [D-WV] and agree not to follow up on all of those things?” she asked.

Warnock said that he and his constituents are “focused” on issues like health care rather than the subjects she brought up in her line of questioning. 

“Well I’m not focused on any of those things. And as I’ve moved across Georgia, you know, those are interesting conversations inside the Beltway, but I’ve been on the campaign trail for months, and I’ll tell you what ordinary people are asking me about — they’re wondering, are they gonna lose their health care in the middle of a pandemic,” Warnock countered. “We’ve got 1.8 million Georgians who have preexisting conditions and, you know, sometimes these words just become political buzzwords. So, we [ought] to unpack what that means.”

When she kept pushing, Warnock replied, “My job is to take the concerns that are being raised by my constituents, and what I’m telling you is that they’re asking about their health care, they’re asking about whether or not they can earn a liveable wage [for] working hard every day, and they’re wondering when in the world are they gonna get relief after waiting for it for months, and right now what is the Senate doing?”

He went on to slam lawmakers for abusing power. “They’re engaged in this shameless exercise of privilege and power, challenging the basic norms of our government. The people of Georgia rose up and rebuked that kind of politics last night, and I intend to represent their interests in the U.S. Senate — to make sure they have health care, to make sure that they enjoy a liveable wage, and that their voice can be heard in their democracy.”

 McCain tried to ask more questions, but Goldberg cut her off and ended the segment. “I’m actually going to end this,” Goldberg interviened.. “Hey, listen! We’re going to say thanks to the Senator-elect Reverend Raphael Warnock, and we will be right back. Thank you for coming back, sir.”

Apparently Whoopi thought that her fellow leftist Warnock needed protection for his far-left positions that he did his best to hide during the campaign.

Why is it that such a large percentage of the black population accept and vote for these radicals?

America and Georgians are about to find out what they’re getting with their choice of candidates.
In the meantime, God help us all.

Whoopie Cushion Goldstine is a reprehensible gas bag. Has been that never existed. I don’t know, or care, what or how many movies she has been in because I have never seen ANY of them, and never will.

I can’t wait until racial quotas are reinstated and EVERYTHING is determined by your skin color. I anxiously wait for young liberal brainwashed white people to start being victimized by their actions.
To the leftists…..hurry up, I don’t have too many more years left and I want to see stupid young white people learning their lesson. lol lol
