Whoopi Sounds Off On Secretary Carson

“It just feels, Ben, like you’re kinda blaming poor people for being poor.”


Whoopi Goldberg, spurred by Secretary Carson’s latest round of unsettling comments while touring low-income housing last week, took to The View to sound off.

According to Secretary Carson, compassion means not giving people “a comfortable setting that would make somebody want to say: ‘I’ll just stay here. They will take care of me.”

Golberg, who once lived in a government-subsidized housing project, was not having it.

“You think poor people wanna stay in the housing, because I gotta tell you, all I could think of was how to get the hell out of there,” she said.
