This morning things got heated on the View when Candace Cameron Bure (yes, D.J. Tanner from Full House), said she voted on policy and isn’t upset with the results of the 2016 Presidential Election. Whoopi Goldberg delivered an unabashed response, reminding viewers why Trump’s win might be making some of us uneasy:

I have to say that given the bigger picture of what Donald Trump represents, it’s not so comfortable for me because not only does he now threaten how things are going to be with kids of color, with women’s rights, with my right to decide what’s right for my body, not what somebody else says is right … This is a bigger picture, this is bigger than him, this ripples out in so many different — it affects gay folk, gay marriage, transgender people. This has huge effects whether we are a nation who believes in people’s rights as they are constitutionally guaranteed, whether we’re a nation that believes in the rights as God as guaranteed. Whatever you believe, no child should be afraid that their parents are going to be taken away because they’re Muslim, or Mexican, or black, no kid should ever have to deal with that and that to me is an issue.

What she said.
