Left, right and center, pretty much everyone agrees that America is an amazing nation. Case in point: A girl born into poverty who ended up dropping out of high school ended up as one of the most wealthy women in the country. But what has many already wishing her a pre-emptive but nonetheless fond adieu would be the recent comments by Hollywood A-Lister Whoopi Goldberg regarding the upcoming presidential election.
Born Caryn Elaine Johnson, Goldberg opined on the Jan. 20, 2016 airing of her panel discussion show The View, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump needs to “stop blaming” others for the nation’s woes and then threatened to “move” out of the country if Trump wins the election. As reported by Breitbart.com, Goldberg also admonished the presidential contenders, “So I need all the candidates to get it together. Get back to American values.”
Yet Goldberg failed to mention what she considered acceptable American values. However, she did appear on The Howard Stern Show in 2013 where she admitted to her youthful habit of shooting up heroin “because it seemed like a good idea at the time.” She also spoke of her taking a number of “shitty” jobs to feed her smack habit to include scrubbing toilets for the New York City subway system.
Highlighting her prowess at telephonic erotica, Goldberg gave an examples of her charms with Stern:
Howard: Hey baby.
Howard: What’re you wearing?
Whoopi: What do you think I’m wearing?
Howard: Are you naked?
Whoopi: I could be.
With youthful indiscretions aside, the Orlando Sentinel noted in a 1994 interview Goldberg bragged, ”I’m an anti-Semite, I’m a bigot. I’m a disgrace to my race, I’m a disgrace to women. I’m a home-wrecker. I’ve slept with everyone in Hollywood.”
Not done yet, she also added, ”It feels pretty good to be the highest-paid woman in the history of Hollywood.” While Goldberg’s best Hollywood days may be behind her, CelebrityNetWorth.com estimated her personal fortune at $45 million.
