Co-host Whoopi Goldberg of ABC’s “The View,” attacked Mike Pence for apparently showing little respect for North Korea when he didn’t stand for their Olympic entrance.
Partial transcript as follows:
HOSTIN: I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events? Wasn’t he that guy who walked out of the football game because people were kneeling and not standing?
JOY BEHAR: Well he would say that’s in their own country is what he would say to that
HOSTIN: But he’s representing the United States of America isn’t he?
GOLDBERG: We have to be respectful because what we do know about politicians is they end up sitting with people that you and I say well, why are they sitting with them? So if you’re in Korea, you need to stand up. You need to stand up and show respect.
