Whoopi Goldberg returned to The View after a week off on Tuesday wearing one of her signature Christmas sweaters. Meghan McCain was quick to say she’d rather plug her co-host’s product than talk about “America’s funeral.” “No, this is not a funeral,” Goldberg told her. “Listen, you have to go pretty hard to destroy us. There are too many people who fought too hard for too long to let that happen, and that's why we are celebrating the Constitution. We are celebrating our rights as Americans to say something's wrong.” In a personal note to both McCain and Abby Huntsman, she added, “That's why your dad fought, that's why your brothers fight. That's why my father and grandfather fought and my mom and everybody else. That's why they fought. They fought for our right to say you can't do it this way.” Of course, they were talking about the big news that House Democrats had officially filed articles of impeachment against “you-know-who,” as Goldberg put it. When the audience began to cheer, she stopped them in their tracks. Waving a finger, Goldberg said, “No, no, this is not a celebratory moment. This is not a good thing.” “When he's out, then we'll clap,” Joy Behar chimed in. “Maybe you can clap then, but still, this is not good,” Goldberg said. “It wasn't good when it happened to Nixon. it wasn't good when it happened to Clinton. And this is not good. This is not good. But in order to keep our nation on point, we must do the due diligence that the Constitution requires.” Amy Klobuchar Schools Meghan McCain on ImpeachmentRead more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

GM, which controls about 70% of the large sport utility market in North America with six models, unveiled the redesigned Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, the first of a new generation of large SUVs whose profits will help fund development of electric vehicles that the automaker promises for the future. The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, revealed at the arena where the Detroit Red Wings hockey team plays in downtown Detroit, is 6.7 inches longer than the current Tahoe and can carry as much as 122.9 cubic feet of cargo.

Bill Cosby lost his bid to overturn his sexual assault conviction Tuesday, as an appeals court upheld the verdict in the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era. In its ruling, the Superior Court upheld the right of prosecutors to call other accusers to bolster their case - the same issue that was fought over in pretrial hearings before movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault trial. “This decision is a reminder that no one is above the law,” Andrea Constand, the victim in Cosby's case, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Victoria Falls, known locally as Mosi-oa Tunya, (“The Smoke that Thunders”), has seen its water levels slow to a relative trickle this dry season as drought ravages the region due to the impact of climate change. The drought, which already threatens the livelihoods of regional farmers, could also hurt the tourism industries in Zimbabwe and Zambia. This year the two southern African nations have experienced a long-running drought which has resulted in incessant power cuts due to a reliance on hydroelectric power.
