• Whoopi Goldberg Mocks Marco Rubio, Lindsey Graham: A Shortie and a Dummy

    Whoopi Goldberg ripped Republican presidential candidates for their hawkish talk on Islamic terrorism on Tuesday’s edition of The View.

    “The Republican candidates are kind of sounding more like action heroes,” Goldberg said. “Chris Christie wants to pump up the military. Marco Rubio says he ‘will find and kill terrorists like Liam Neeson in ‘Taken.’”

    “You’re too short to be Liam Neeson — find somebody else!” she continued, as the audience jeered with applause and laughter.

    Goldberg’s comment was in reference to Rubio’s speech at the South Carolina Freedom Summit last week where the Florida senator quoted the movie ‘Taken’ while addressing his position on dealing with terrorism and jihadists at the South Carolina Freedom Summit.

    “My favorite is Lindsey Graham, who is more like a snail to me,” Goldberg added, before rolling a clip of what she referred to as Graham “talking tough.”

    “If I’m President of the United States, and you’re thinking about joining al-Qaeda or ISIL … I’m not going to call a judge — I’m going to call a drone and we will kill you,” Graham recently said in Iowa.

    “Democrats and the media and Republicans alike appreciate Lindsey Graham, just because of this,” Goldberg’s co-host Nicolle Wallace argued. “He speaks directly to people’s fear. No one is saying we shouldn’t be afraid. He’s a straight talker. He’s best friends with [Sen.] John McCain, and he has a lot of fans.”

    Goldberg rejected Wallace’s argument, saying Graham had no way of knowing how to make that call.

    “How are you going to know, Lindsey?” she said.

    “If people are communicating with ISIL, then shut off their thing, don’t bomb them, because what if there are other people in the building?” she asked. “What if there are families in houses next door? Lindsey! Think about this, dummy.”
