Whoopi Goldberg is a huge Obama supporter. If people had burned the American flag after Obama was elected in 2008 she would have called it proof that America is a horrible racist country and she knows it.
The fact that she’s excusing flag burning now only exposes her hypocrisy.
From the FOX News Insider:
Whoopi Goldberg Defends Flag-Burners: ‘They Don’t Hate The Country’
Actress Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated debate with her co-hosts on The View this morning, arguing the merits of burning the American flag.
The hosts were reacting to President-elect Donald Trump’s tweet in which he said that flag-burners should be jailed and possibly be stripped of citizenship.
“The flag does not always represent all of its people– All of its people were not taken care of under our flag,” Goldberg said.
“People are angry. They sometimes get angry and they burn the flag,” she said.
Co-host Paula Faris said that flag-burners have the Constitutional right to do so, but they often hate the United States, to which Goldberg adamantly disagreed: “They don’t hate this country. Stop saying that.”

She’s so full of it!
This is nothing more than a thinly veiled attack on Trump. As usual, Whoopi is using the issue as a weapon for a partisan attack. If the shoe was on the other foot, she’d be calling it an attack on American values.
