Whoopi Goldberg tried to humiliate Donald Trump on Monday by claiming his lawyer lied yesterday when he said the president is no longer under investigation. Unfortunately for Whoopi, however, her efforts quickly backfired in a big way.
Gossip Cop reported that Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow spent the weekend appearing on various media shows to say that the president is not under investigation. In one interview, Sekulow simply misspoke and said Trump actually is being investigated. Though he quickly corrected himself, Whoopi tried to read into this and make it into a much bigger deal than it was.
“The current administration really needs to get themselves together. And they need to get the story straight,” she said, adding that she was “confused” by Sekulow.
Cohost Sunny Hostin said that Trump and Sekulow probably do not know if he is under investigation.
“The current administration really needs to get themselves together. And they need to get the story straight,” she said. “This lawyer, the way he posed all this information, is what gives lawyers a bad name.”
Twitter users, however, made it clear that they did not agree with Whoopi’s logic.

@WhoopiGoldberg why haven’t you left the US? You said you’d leave if Trump became president. Surely you can afford to relocate.
