In Thursday's episode of The View, Whoopi Goldberg revealed her feelings about Donald Trump and how he has recovered suspiciously quickly from the virus.
Safe to say, she didn't hold back...
Everything changed for the presidential election on October 2nd.
via: GettyPresident Donald Trump and First Lady Melania both tested positive for COVID-19.
Predictably, Trump announced the diagnosis on Twitter...And there's no doubting how the news shocked the entire world.
But of course...
via: GettyEven though the president was admitted into the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre, he discharged himself just days later, claiming he felt "better than ever."
Trump supporters were obviously delighted by this news...
via: GettyBut the president's constant reassurances about how well he was feeling raised a lot of suspicions.
Many felt it was all an act...And along with no sign of a negative test, Trump felt it was necessary to address the nation with an update on how great he was feeling. He also decided to tell millions of Americans to "not fear the virus" and to learn to "live with it."
Some famous faces are even speaking out about Trump's diagnosis.
via: GettyOne of those being Whoopi Goldberg... and she had a lot to say.
There's no doubt the whole thing has been very concerning...And people were feeling extremely alarmed at the president's relaxed attitude towards a virus that has so far killed more than 220,000 American citizens.
Trump even tried to claim he was "immune" from COVID...
via: GettyAnd that testing positive for it was a "blessing in disguise sent from God."
The president then made a promise to give any American with COVID "free healthcare"...Which, of course, many pointed out is an extremely unrealistic promise.
Well, just a mere 2 weeks on from Trump's positive test, he was out and about holding rallies for his presidential campaign...
via: GettyAnd as you can see, there have been barely any face masks in sight among the hundreds of supporters gathered for his rallies... even though the president jokingly threw a few into the crowd.
Trump seems to be a good spirits as he continues to power on through his presidential campaign...
via: GettyAnd even though the second scheduled presidential debate was canceled due to him refusing to take part in a health and safety restricted virtual debate, Trump went ahead with his own town-hall forum last week.
Leading many to wonder if the president even had the virus in the first place...And Whoopi Goldberg is one of those skeptics.
Both Goldberg and her fellow The View host Joy Behar admitted they don't believe President Trump had the virus.Saying the whole thing looked a bit too suspicious.
During Thursday's episode, they went through how they felt about his diagnosis.
via: TwitterAnd discussed the Trump administration's push for herd immunity.
"You know what?" Goldberg said...
via: Twitter"The more he talks, the less I think he had it, personally. That's just me, that's just me." "Me too!" seventy-eight-year-old Behar, interjected. "I'm starting to think that too, Whoopi."
Goldberg said she was skeptical over Trump's recovery...
via: TwitterAfter being discharged just 2 days after entering Walter Reed Medical Center.
via: GettyPhysicians insisted that Trump had been cleared after testing negative on "consecutive days."
He's since hosted a series of campaign rallies and looks to be in perfect health - something that has raised Goldberg's eyebrow.
via: Getty"I'm starting to feel like, really?" Goldberg said. "Because I just feel like...[Trump] is the only person on the face of the Earth ... and if you're comparing yourself to Jesus, you're saying five days, that's all it took. "People still haven't been able to get out of the bed. So I don't know. I just feel weird about it."
According to John Hopkins Medicine...

Behar agrees with Goldberg...
via: Twitter"He's a liar. Why would you believe anything he says?" she added.
Co-host Sunny Hostin gave her opinion that Trump's recovery could be down to his access to top-notch health care.
via: Twitter"They don't have access to the same drugs," Hostin said.
During his stay at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland...
via: GettyTrump was administered an experimental cocktail of antibodies from the biotech company Regeneron.
He also took Remdesivir, the controversial Ebola drug as well as the steroid Dexamethasone.
via: GettyTrump was also placed on oxygen, given around the clock care.
"It's not about the drugs," Behar replied.
via: TwitterGoldberg added that "It's hard to trust him, it's also hard to go with it and I hate feeling like that."
