After the news broke of Whoopi Goldberg’s two week suspension, Sean Hannity came to the defense of The View co-host. Goldberg faced immediate backlash on Monday after she said on The View that the holocaust was “not about race,” but rather “about man’s inhumanity to man.” Goldberg was quick to issue an apology, but it wasn’t enough.

“I think her apology is sincere. I think she's learned a lot in the process. If two weeks off is the penalty, it's better than being canceled,” Hannity said. “And I just — I have just a reflexive reaction to cancel because I don't like what somebody says, because you don't have to watch The View. I hate to tell you, I don't watch The View.”

While Hannity agreed that Goldberg’s comment was wrong, he gave her credit for what she got right. But still questioned what made her say it in the first place.

“She recognized the evil, but did she not know the history, or did she just negate the history?” Hannity asked. “She recognized evil, man’s inhumanity to man. Six million Jews were slaughtered. Millions others, slaughtered.”

Video Transcript

TED CRUZ: Unfortunately, under Joe Biden, we have seen an incredibly partisan Department of Justice. And both the Department of Justice and the FBI have an arrogance that they are not accountable to anyone, that they can stonewall.

KYLIE MAR: Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Hannity Tuesday following a hearing earlier in the day, in which he questioned an FBI official about whether or not the agency had anything to do with the January 6 insurrection, a narrative Fox News opinion host Tucker Carlson has been pushing for months. Like others, Cruz focused on one individual.

TED CRUZ: In that same hearing, I asked that FBI official, I asked her about one individual in particular, Ray Epps. We know the FBI put him out on the list of people they wanted information about. And then magically, he disappeared.

KYLIE MAR: Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger spent the afternoon shooting down Cruz's narrative. And though the FBI'S supposed transgressions would have taken place while former President Trump was in the White House, Cruz believes the Biden administration should answer for any wrongdoing.

TED CRUZ: There needs to be transparency, and the Biden administration needs to fess up. Is this a politicized law enforcement operation that is targeting the enemies of the president, and did they actively encourage and solicit illegal conduct?
