(CBrief) – ABC’s “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg had a meltdown for the ages on Wednesday and slammed critics of Dr. Anthony Fauci. Goldberg revealed that she had COVID-19 and awkwardly began shouting. “it will kill you.”

“Now that suggestion set… people’s heads exploded from outrage,” Goldberg said. “A lot of conservatives who posted about how much they hate Dr. Fauci, that they would rather get Covid than ever test again — let me explain something to you as somebody who’s just come off it again. And not a nice, light, you know, because I came off a tough a– [COVID diagnosis], OK? You don’t want to get this. It’s not funny. You don’t want this. This will kill you! What’s the matter with you people?”

Co-host Joy Behar claimed COVID did not kill Goldberg because she had received a booster shot.

“If you are not boosted, you could die. That’s the point. People write on Twitter or someplace, ‘You see? Whoopi got it, and she has the vaccinations.’ Yeah, but Whoopi’s sitting there. She’s not in a casket, thank you,” Behar said.

“And people who are immunocompromised, you know, I have to stay well, so I don’t hurt anybody else. This is how we take care of each other. I don’t understand how a suggestion for making your life perhaps better for the holidays makes people crazy,” Behar continued.

“Why do people hate watch Dr. Fauci? If you don’t like him, like, carry on. Like, there are other channels. There are other things to do, it’s not like he got you to wear a mask or do anything else… So just carry on. Keep doing your nonmasking,” co-host Sara Haines said.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin also praised Fauci and said that conservatives blamed him for everything they disliked about COVID policies. A former top Trump White House official, Farah Griffin joined her co-hosts in questioning Fauci’s critics.

“I think a lot in my party blamed him for everything they disliked about COVID policies. But he’s not an economic adviser. So if you don’t like that states closed down because of COVID or businesses closed down, that was not Dr. Fauci’s, an infectious disease doctor’s decision to do that or even things like discussions around masking,” she said.
