Ann Coulter forced Whoopi Goldberg up to her breaking point when she appeared on “The View” on Thursday to promote her controversial new book.
Coulter took less than 30 seconds to get under the host’s skin, confidently claiming: “I write these books because I try to correct things people believe that are just false.”
The Republican promoted her book Mugged while arguing that America’s “legacy of slavery” has lead to civil rights only “belonging to blacks,” much to Goldberg’s disgust.
As tension mounted around the table, Goldberg demanded of Coulter: “Tell me what you know about being black.”
Appearing exasperated to the point of near-speechlessness, Goldberg told her: “Your facts are a little shaky. I mean, you’re saying that because liberals have abandoned black people now—what? I don’t get it. I don’t understand.”
“I don’t think liberals ever cared about black people,” Coulter said, defending herself and trying to make a case for sympathetic Republicans.
“Five minutes after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, they start calling everything that has nothing to do with black people a civil rights issue: abortion on demand, homeless rights.”
But Goldberg had had enough, exploding with rage she shouted: “Bullshit! Bullshit! I’m sorry! That’s bull, that’s bull.”
Each of the four other women sat around “The View”‘s table picked their own faults with Coulter’s claims.
“You’re saying liberals don’t care about black people,” Sherri Shepard complained.
“Then are you saying that Republicans embrace us in a warm fuzzy way.”
To which Coulter staunchly replied: “I do, we are not embraced back.”
The women continued to bicker as Coulter adamantly stated that the “Southern Strategy is a lie” and even claimed that the O.J. Simpson verdict was “the best thing that ever happened to black Americans.”
“Millions of white people watching with the equivalent of in New York, we use the Brooklyn juries who simply would not convict, even guilty black criminals,” she said, interrupted by Goldberg who cut in: “You know what, hold up Ms. Coulter.
“Please stop, please stop! If you’re going to talk about race, at least, know what you’re talking about.
“At least know what you’re talking about.”
Eventually co-host Barbara Walters called time on the heated debate, turning to Coulter and thanking her for coming on the show.
“No matter what, you sit down here and you got 5 women going bah badda badda, whatever it is, thank you for coming on!”

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
