Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of The View, railed against “thoughts and prayers” in the wake of the shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, threatening to “punch somebody” if she heard any more Republicans say they were heartbroken over the violence.
“What are we doing?” Goldberg asked after playing clips of President Joe Biden and Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) reacting to the shooting. “Why are we always at square one with this?”
Goldberg continued: “And I swear to God, if I see another Republican senator talk about their heart being broken, I’ma go punch somebody!”
“I can’t take thoughts and prayers. If your thoughts and prayers were really with everybody, you’d have done something by now.”
Co-host Ana Navarro echoed Goldberg’s sentiments later in the episode.
“I hope they roll up their little thoughts and prayers into a suppository and find what to do with it,” Navarro said.
