‘The View’ Co-Host Whoopi Goldberg Praises Biden’s First Months in Office: ‘He’s Taking Care of Business’ (Video)

“You gotta give it to him,” the talk show host argues

Whoopi Goldberg is more than ready to give credit where credit is due when it comes to President Biden’s first few months in office. During Monday’s episode of “The View,” the host offered up her praises as the panel dug into the latest unemployment numbers in the U.S.

The latest jobs report indicated that only 266,000 jobs were created in April, falling well below the projected – and hoped for – numbers of 1,000,000 jobs. While Biden has argued that it shows his infrastructure plans are key to getting things back on track, Republicans have argued that Biden’s policies are in fact the cause of this.

“Everybody has a theory about it,” Whoopi noted. But, after opening the floor to the panel on this subject, Whoopi offered her opinion quite clearly.

“I know y’all wanna blame him for something. I know you want it to be his fault,” Whoopi said. “But right now, you know, he’s taking care of business, and you gotta give it to him. You gotta give it to him, there’s nothing else.”

The panel did not respond to Whoopi’s assertion, and moved on shortly thereafter, discussing whether the pandemic has been harder on women or men. Both Joy Behar and Meghan McCain had the day off, so Ana Nevarro stepped in for the morning.
