During Tuesday’s episode of “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked why so many people admittedly made “snap judgment” about the Covington Kids, blaming them as the aggressors during a confrontation with a Native American Vietnam vet “when different rallies converged in D.C. over the weekend.
“Now this week, social media, honey, attacked Kentucky private school kids for this confrontation with a Native American Vietnam veteran when different rallies converged in D.C.,” Goldberg said and showed the initial clip that first hit social media.
“So the school kids were blamed for being the aggressors, but then the extended footage was released that showed a group of black Israelites mocking the kids and the Native American,” she said. Then the extended clip was shown.
“So many people admitted they made snap judgments before these other facts came in, but isn’t that we just instantly say that’s what it is based on what we see in that moment and then have to walk stuff back when it turns out we’re wrong. Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?” Goldberg asked.
“Cause we’re desperate to get Trump out of office. That’s why,” Behar said. “I think that that’s the reason. I think the press jumps the gun a lot, because we just– we have so much circumstantial evidence against this guy that we basically are hoping that you know Cohen’s got the goods and what have you, and so it’s wishful thinking.”
