‘The View’s Whoopi Goldberg “Offended” By Trump Attending NYPD Officer’s Funeral: “Didn’t Care What Happened To The Officers On Jan. 6”

Whoopi Goldberg isn’t a fan of Donald Trump, but she was so excited about the POTUS’ unique mandate that she stepped in to question Alyssa Farah Griffin’s analysis of him on this morning’s episode of View.

While discussing the upcoming 2024 election, Griffin said she believed Trump’s “rhetoric and lack of impulse control” would lead to his downfall. Still, she said her recent appearance at the funeral of NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller may have won her stronger Republican support.

“Last week, he had a brief and good political moment for a Republican. He attended the funeral of a murdered NYPD officer to juxtapose, you know, what he was describing as (Joe) Biden hanging out with celebrities,” Griffin said. “Pick what you like there, but for Republicans, it was good imagery.”

As she began to continue, a flabbergasted Goldberg asked, “Really?

Griffin began: “One day later…” then stopped to respond to Goldberg, answering with a definitive “yes.”

Goldberg then explained to her co-host why she asked her, responding, “I ask that question because I was so offended, because this man, because you know who, showed up, and he was – whether it was requested or not…”

As Griffin clarified, “he was invited,” Goldberg continued, “this is a man who didn’t care what happened to the officers on January 6.”

Griffin, seeming to agree, told Goldberg “exactly” and named Brian Sicknick, a Capitol Police officer who died after responding to the Jan. 6 insurrection, where he was pepper-sprayed and suffered two accidents cerebral vascular.

Griffin then continued: “Just to finish my point, at its core, it was about smart optics. But he objects to it a minute later by tweeting this offensive and dangerous photo of Joe Biden… He lacks the most basic instincts when it comes to impulse control and I think that’s going to hurt him over time. that we are getting closer to the elections.”

The Sicknick family also spoke about Trump’s presence at Diller’s funeral. While sharing their condolences to the late officer’s family, they also questioned Trump’s intentions in addressing The New York Daily News.

Charles Sicknick, Brian’s father, said The New York Daily News that Trump only lowered the White House flags to half-mast three days after his son’s body was released from the hospital. He told the outlet: “The first one to call us was Joe Biden and he was crying on the phone. The only thing Donald Trump cares about is Donald Trump.”
