In a shocking turn of events on Wednesday’s The View, Whoopi Goldberg came to the defense of a Trump. Goldberg makes no secret of the fact that she is staunchly opposed to President Trump, but she disagrees with how his daughter, Tiffany Trump, was treated during a show at New York Fashion Week.
At the Philipp Plein show, a senior editor for Elle Magazine, among others, changed seats so they wouldn’t have to sit next to the first daughter. Some even tweeted pictures of Trump with the empty seats next to her. Goldberg volunteered to keep Trump company at upcoming shows if need be.
“Tiffany, I’m supposed to go to a couple more shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m coming to sit with you. Because nobody’s talking politics at the—you’re looking at fashion. She doesn’t want to talk about her dad. She’s looking at the fashion,” Goldberg said.
Goldberg was also quick to differentiate between the fashion editors refusing to sit by Trump at the Fashion Week event and the widespread boycott of her sister Ivanka’s clothing and accessory line.
Goldberg explained, “People say, ‘What’s the difference between people boycotting Ivanka?’ There’s a difference. That’s all about buying stuff. You’re buying stuff. This girl is looking at fashion. She’s just looking at fashion.”
Tiffany Trump has since Tweeted about the exchange, gladly accepting Goldberg’s offer.
