Whoopi Goldberg, a co-host on “The View,” has voiced her backing for President Joe Biden following a poor debate showing.

On Monday, Goldberg said, “I don’t care if he’s pooped his pants. I don’t care if he can’t put a sentence together. Show me he can’t do the job and then I’ll say, okay, maybe it’s time to go. Now, he had a bad night the first time that he went on and debated with Kamala Harris, and everybody wanted him to quit then, saying ‘You can’t talk to women like this,’ or ‘You’re doing this wrong, you’re doing that wrong.’ He came back, said, ‘You know what? I got it,’ and gave four years.”

“So yeah, I have poopy days all the time. I step in so much poo you can’t even imagine. Now, I’m not running the world, but I don’t know anybody who doesn’t step in stuff at some point. So I’m just simply saying, yeah, there are two debates,” she continued.

Finally, Goldberg added, “And if he can’t do what he needs to do for the second debate, I’ll join any crew that says get rid of him. But loyalty to me? If you are doing the job, I might not like everything you’re doing. I don’t like it all. But I’m going to stand behind you like those guys stand behind the guy who should have been the person people were talking about saying, ‘Yeah, Biden had a bad day, but this guy couldn’t tell the truth if it split his lip.’ But nobody said that.”


Axios reported that on Sunday, at least four senior House Democrats expressed their belief in a call with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) that Biden should step aside. This comes after his poor debate performance, which has raised fresh concerns about his age and ability to defeat former President Donald Trump in the election.

However, in a defiant letter on Monday, Biden said, “I want you to know that despite all the speculation in the press and elsewhere, I am firmly committed to staying in this race, to running this race to the end, and to beating Donald Trump.”

“I have had extensive conversations with the leadership of the party, elected officials, rank and file members, and most importantly, Democratic voters over these past 10 days or so,” he continued. “I have heard the concerns that people have — their good faith fears and worries about what is at stake in this election. I am not blind to them. Believe me.”
