Whoopi Goldberg: It’s time to play the race card on Trump

posted at 5:49 pm on April 27, 2011 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, a stern lesson about not showing “insane disrespect to the president” from a show that used to be co-hosted by a 9/11 Truther. Trump’s very Trump-ish response to the accusation: “There is nobody who’s less of a racist than me.” I hope they have him back as a guest soon. An hour of banter like that between him and Whoopi would be a dream come true.

A question via lefty Tommy Christopher and righty Philip Klein: Did Obama make a mistake by playing Trump’s game and finally producing the birth certificate? Both say yes for various reasons, among them that this will encourage other species of conspiracy theorists to press their own claims harder. The thing is, The One might not have had the luxury of taking the high road. Thanks to Trump mainstreaming this issue, it may have been starting to bite politically — not necessarily among true-believing Birthers, who’ll never be dissuaded from their position, but among people who hadn’t followed it until someone with a media profile as high as Trump’s started talking about it. Maybe they ran an internal poll, got some numbers back that they didn’t like, and decided that it was time to end the fun. A telling quote from a Democratic strategist: “This has become more than an obsession among the lunatic fringe.”

Or maybe they just want to feed Trump fever among (some parts of) the base by burnishing the image of him as a guy whom Obama “fears” or whatever. Trump’s numbers are already turning toxic nationally and among independents in swing states; maybe Obama and Plouffe wanted to encourage him to run at a decisive moment by handing him a big “victory,” which will keep the media focused on him and similar kooky material. Ace thinks that theory is too clever by half but I don’t know why. The whole liberal narrative about the tea-party GOP is that it’s insane, and since O has nothing to show centrists and independents after two and a half years in office, he quite reasonably concludes at this point that he’s better off trying to scare them into preferring him over the GOP as the lesser of two evils. His Mediscare tactics towards Ryan aren’t much different. He doesn’t need a plan of his own if he can convince people that his opponent’s a crazy monster, so why not keep as many “monsters” in the race as he can?

the Race Race card?

When have folks on the left not played the race card?

powerpro on April 27, 2011 at 5:54 PM

As nutty as their audience must be, I honestly do not think Whoopi’s race card is going to play well with that group. I think she is misreading her audience. They’re liberal, yes. But of the housewife variety, not the professional left variety. I bet she dials it back pretty quickly after the calls and e-mails start coming in.

Rational Thought on April 27, 2011 at 5:56 PM

Obama has a record now. It’s not a very good one. He can make up monsters all he wants. He can keep “leading from behind” and see of that works. It hasn’t so far, but hey, I hope they keep it up.

Whoopi is an idiot. She needs some more cocktails or whatever she took that day she was basically drunk on air. It made her more interesting.

JAM on April 27, 2011 at 5:57 PM

The Geneva Convention cable ratings chapter demands it.

Would be nice if Trump could burn the race card too, after killing the birther stuff.

He should remind them of their 9/11 rants on the view.

I like Whoopi but she is far to protective of Obama. She can’t understand that our contempt and distrust in him has nothing to do with his half blackness but everything to do with his anti American Marxist-ish policies!

MCGIRV on April 27, 2011 at 6:02 PM

Obama’s election in 2008, mostly by WHITE VOTERS has erased the racism of the past.

A Black man has gone to the highest office in the World.

What else do you want?

portlandon on April 27, 2011 at 6:04 PM

trump needs to play the ‘obama…you’re fired’ card.

this entire trump / corsi alliance feels well planned and like the first of many correographed steps about to unfold.

DrW on April 27, 2011 at 6:04 PM

I think the Obama campaign is more concerned with the fact that Trump was gaining too much of a following and semi-support on the birth certificate which isn’t a real issue for Obama. But, when Trump started needling about the grades non-disclosure, that is an issue than could be really sensitive, if they aren’t sterling in nature which seems to be the case.

Trump isn’t a seriuos candidate, which lets him go loose cannon on anything without worrying about the repercussions. He flamed the birth cert issue and got more people involved. He’s got nothing to lose going after the most transparent president evuh’s college grades.

I’m thinking that Obama through the cert out there now to show that Trump (and the birthers) are all wet, and to prevent any steam from building up to demand his college records, which could really hurt Obama.

parke on April 27, 2011 at 6:05 PM

Obama released it today because he thought he could still get an invite to the royal wedding. Royals don’t much care for people with questionable backgrounds.

JavelinaBomb on April 27, 2011 at 6:06 PM

My thoughts exactly. They put the BC out to shut down the calls for his college records. They’ve lost “greatest orator of all time.” They’ve lost “will bring the country together.” They’ve lost “will end the wars.” They’ve lost “will create jobs.”

If they lose “smartest president evah!” they’ve got nuthin. Nada. Zip. The whole fraud comes tumbling down around them.

Never mind Whoopi. Who cares what ‘card’ she plays? Does anyone really care?

The burning questions for me is what language is Joy Behar speaking, and does she have a brain? What a mindless, hideous creature.

OK. That’s 3 minutes of my life wasted. Never again.

I don’t think they were handing Trump a victory. The “carnival barker” just forced the President of the United States of America, the most powerful man and nation on earth and in history to produce a document that that President spent 2 & 1/2 years refusing to produce: and the document was a routine form which was produced by his ’08 opponent without objection when his eligibility was questioned. Obama danced to Trump’s tune (and it must be because this issue was causing political damage, otherwise there’s no need to produce the document now) and no amount of spin or errant after action analysis can change that fact. The net result is that Obama and the Dems “trap” to make the Repubs look crazy backfired on them and Obama has been humiliated and has lots of carnival cotton candy on his face.

JimP on April 27, 2011 at 6:20 PM

Seven Percent Solution on April 27, 2011 at 6:33 PM

In 12 years of study, Obama didn’t write a single article or book.

Show his transcipts and his grades, from highschool.

It would reveal his ‘brilliance’ and his names, not to speak of his ‘efforts’.

Call me a racist all you want. I don’t care if he’s purple.

The racist label is like water down the back of duckies, for any substantive person.

Whoopi got that name, believe it or not, for being too flatulent.

Oh the irony of Whoopi demanding that people give the President respect. Isnt’ this the same woman who spoke at a Democratic fundraiser and used such vile, disgusting, profane language when discussing Bush that she lost her corporate endorsements over it. And now she is lecturing the rest of us on being nice to the president.

slickwillie2001 on April 27, 2011 at 6:51 PM

Ø doesn’t have many options. As political junkies, we knew about the non-disclosure of birth cert, ed. records, etc. but plenty of people never knew of any of it. Trump made them aware.

And naturally they ask, what is worth the expense of hiding in a birth cert, or college records, etc.? There is no good answer, certainly none in the document released today. Those questions are not going away.

Ø’s only choices are show/don’t show. Even a leftie can’t squeeze much nuance into that choice.

jodetoad on April 27, 2011 at 6:58 PM

There are some people who just shouldn’t be given a microphone…as a favor to themselves. She hates the fact that Mr. President had to come clean with proof of his citizenship so much that now she’s going to plant the conspiracy that Trump is a racist. Makes perfect sense to me /

scalleywag on April 27, 2011 at 7:04 PM

Im sorry, Whoopi, the race card expired in 2008. Now, if you want to play the gender card, you still have that available but only until Nov. 6th 2012, when Sarah is elected President.

NY Conservative on April 27, 2011 at 7:29 PM

So basically her entire point was that the “world” sees Americans as stupid, especially now, due to these events.

I see it as just another case where the “world” is jealous of our freedoms, our form of government, and how these events played out without violence/riots/anything too crazy, and ended with a sense of humor (possibly faked, but doesn’t matter) on the POTUS part. It would all be light-hearted all the way around if it wasn’t for butthurt Leftists/media like Whoopi pretending to be so butthurt about the BC, or even questioning BO about anything.

They asked for the BC. The POTUS finally gave in. There may be more controversy, or not. No big deal. In the US (at least for now), its not the apocolypse. That is a good thing.

I do agree with Whoopi that AA did not help blacks. It placed them in colleges at levels that they could not handle, and created a class of drop outs. See recent Thomas Sowell columns for this discussion.

These “ladies” (I use the term loosely) claim that Obama’s sooooooo smart, then what does he have to fear from the release of his transcripts and theses. You’d think an ego maniac like Obama would love to show off his grades. Unless…..

Whoopi Goldberg, of the black, bigoted, politically correct Goldbergs, admitting that Trump forced the issue is huge. It speaks volumes about the damage done to the poisonous multiculti hegemony she and her ilk have trumpeted for decades. Reality finally triumphs, as it always does in the end.

RebeccaH on April 27, 2011 at 10:26 PM

ABC cancels “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” to leave this stinking pile of crap on the air. I about fell out of my chair when I heard Whoopi bleating about how we should show the president some respect. I’m bookmarking this video so that the next time these harpies start laying into the next GOP president we elect, I can produce it and ask, “Et tu, Whoopi?”

Sherri Shepherd remains the most vacuous head on the panel, however, and that’s saying alot. The other two don’t hide their bias, or make any attempt to do so, but she’s just completely clueless. She’s one of those “thoughtful independents” we always hear about I’m sure.

They need to replace her with the Boss Emeritus, but that would never happen because every time Michelle is on there, she reduces them all to a pack of hysterical blatherskites. Can’t have someone with a right-leaning POV and the brains to defend it. That would upset the brainwashed audience’s collective world view.

It’s just more of the same from “The Spew”, so what else is new?

Duh. Just identifying or voting as a republican makes one racist. Everyone knows that. Obviously if you aren’t a liberal, you must be a racist. There is no other way to explain it.

They’ve been playing the race card for two and a half years.

I think it’s worn out. Good Riddance. Well, they won’t quit until it consistently backfires, it’s been working as a way of manipulating people too long for them to give it up until using it causes them pain.

Can we stop, please stop diluting the definition of racism?

1. the belief that races have distinctive cultural characteristics determined by hereditary factors and that this endows some races with an intrinsic superiority over others
2. abusive or aggressive behaviour towards members of another race on the basis of such a belief

I am just curious how objecting to the presidents policies, or telling stereotypical race based jokes (based on observable stereotypes), or singing “King Fu Fighting” in front of a Chinese person meet that definition.
