Whoopi Goldberg had strong words for President Donald Trump on Monday morning's episode of The View (23 November).

Calling out Trump's refusal to concede the 2020 presidential election, The View moderator accused the sitting President of staging "a coup".

“I mean, it's crazy. Reporter Carl Bernstein also released the names of 21 Republican senators who've privately voiced their contempt for [Trump]. I mean, what is it going to take to get people going? We can all just get together and sing 'the party's over',” she said.

“There’s so much disinformation coming out about these crazy court cases he keeps doing and what’s going on in Michigan right now," Goldberg continued, speaking to host Sunny Hostin.

"It feels like they’re attempting a coup, to me, Sunny. I know everyone doesn’t want to hear that, but this is what dictators do when they try to say, ‘This election isn’t real. This didn’t happen. I’m going to change it.'”

"Either we fix it now, or he’s going to walk away with it. Because his lies are many, and they go farther and farther and farther. And it doesn’t matter what we seem to say here because the lies seem to quadruple. As soon as we speak them, they have a lie to block it.”

"The appearance of impropriety that is happening in the Republican party is disgraceful," Hostin weighed in. “And Carl Bernstein saying that 22 people are speaking to him 'privately...' Privately means nothing. Because every person is watching this, not only in this country but around the world."
