Following President Trump's war of words with House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about conditions on the southern border Sunday, "The View" host Whoopi Goldberg boldly compared the detention facilities to a fake Nazi concentration camp set up to dupe the Red Cross during World War II.
"Cummings had a good reason to say that there was a problem," she said Monday. "World War II started in 1939. From 1941-1945 tens of thousands of Jews were kept in Nazi labor camps. There was a camp ... when the Red Cross was invited to inspect the camp in 1944, the Nazis hid the fact of what they were doing.
"And so they built a fake camp. And it was kind of like, no, everything’s fine here. Everybody was eating. People were walking around singing and stuff."
Goldberg continued to hammer the administration and said more politicians need to visit border detention facilities as a bipartisan bloc to finally establish a consensus on the actual conditions and avoid being fooled by fake optics.
"You can’t send folks to one place and say, no, no. Everything’s good. That’s why I say, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, altogether should have to go to the same place at the same time, and we should be able to see it," she said.
"I don’t think one Republican going over here or this one — a Democrat going over here and saying, this is what I’m seeing when everyone is clearly seeing something that’s totally different."
