The Dems are still talking about a real political loser – slavery reparations. It is almost as if they are trying to get crushed in 2020.
This Thursday, Whoopi Goldberg argued that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should pay reparations to former President Barack Obama.
In response to the Congressional hearing from Wednesday on the possibility of reparations for slavery, Mitch McConnell argued that reparations were not the best path to move forward.
“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible is a good idea,” Mitch McConnell said.
McConnell proceeded to point out some of the progress our society has made since the end of slavery, including Civil Rights legislation and the fact that “we’ve elected an African American president.”
The following morning, Whoopi Goldberg fired back at Mitch McConnell during a segment of ABC’s “The View.”
Ana Navarro brought Mitch McConnell into the conversation, saying, “But yesterday, Mitch McConnell got asked this question and he said, you know, electing Barack Obama is reparations. He’s not even a descendant of slaves. His Daddy was an intellectual, an exchange student from Kenya.”
“Can I interject something here?” Whoopi Goldberg asked. “You know, Mitch, you said that you would make him a one-term president. And you did everything you could to not help him in the first four years. Maybe you should pay reparation for that.”
The hearing, regarding H.R. 40, was set to determine whether it would be feasible to impose financial reparations for slavery and the pursuant unequal treatment of black people in America.
