Whoopi Goldberg is demanding that the United States Constitution be amended so that criminals can’t be president.

Goldberg Calls For Amendment To Constitution 

“What really was started to freak me out is the idea that we’re not even discussing changing the Constitution to make it say you cannot be in jail while being the president,” Goldberg said on Thursday’s episode of her ABC talk show “The View.”

“An amendment would be nice,” her co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in to add, to which Goldberg responded, “I’m a big fan of amendments. I feel like unless we start to plug these holes, this is going to keep biting us in the behind. It really is going to take people saying, hey, listen, if I can’t vote when I come out of jail, why can you be president.”

“That’s a wonderful point. Amendments are very American,” Hostin said, “You know, I mean, some people argue the Constitution is not a breathing and living thing. It’s sort of stagnant. I feel differently. I feel it’s a living and breathing thing. We didn’t have cell phones before. We don’t know there would be AR-15s.”

Goldberg Doubles Down

That’s when Goldberg really doubled down.

“It has to grow with the country,” she said. “What has happened, I know this is weird, but I’ve been having strange thoughts. What I think has happened for us as a nation is over the past ten years weird stuff has been happening in the country to show us where the problems are.”

“I think the fact that we have this situation now with you-know-who is there to tell us, hey, y’all have a problem and these kinds of things are going to start coming up because these kinds of people, people who are not reading the Constitution, don’t know the law, don’t know how this country runs are now starting to get in,” Goldberg continued. “An amendment will change how we deal with people who come up like this.”

Goldberg’s co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, who previously worked n the administration of Donald Trump, had some thoughts on this as well.

“The bar is high for a constitutional amendment,” she said. “I think it warrants it in this case. It would force a state like Texas to be on the record do you think that somebody who is a convicted felon should be able to hold office? I believe in restoring felons voting rights. I don’t believe you should be able to run for president if you’re in jail.”

Trump Indicted 

This comes after Trump was indicted on 37 federal counts following Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into alleged improper handling of classified documents.

“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax,” Trump said last Thursday night, according to The Miami Herald.

During his arraignment on Tuesday, Trump pleaded not guilty to all of the charges against him.

“Today we witnessed the most evil and heinous abuse of power in the history of our country,” Trump said afterwards, according to 9News. “This is called election interference and yet another attempt to rig and steal a presidential election. But they will fail and we will win bigger and better than ever before.”

Goldberg and her co-hosts on “The View” are hopelessly infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome, so nothing that they say about him can really be taken seriously. Goldberg can call for the Constitution to be amended all that she wants to, but thankfully, she’s not in a position to actually make that happen.
