Whoopi Goldberg Confronts Chris Christie on 'The View': Who Are You Willing to 'Sacrifice?'

Former New Jersey governor and current ABC News contributor Chris Christie got more than he bargained for on Friday morning when he joined The View to make his case for “reopening” the country in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“You upset a lot of people saying the country needs to reopen because people are going to die no matter what,” Whoopi Goldberg began when Christie appeared in the box next to her. “You compared it to lives lost in World War II, calling it a sacrifice for the American way of life. So I’m asking, since you’re suggesting that I sacrifice, who are you sacrificing? Who are you willing to give up in your family?”

As Christie started to explain that he was simply presenting a “choice” between death and the unemployment rate, Goldberg asked him again, “Who are you willing to sacrifice to die, Chris? You’re saying people should be willing to sacrifice family to die. Who are you willing to give up?”

“Whoopi, that’s not what I said,” he replied. “Lives are going to be lost in this inevitably, no matter what we do. Lives are being lost today after we’ve been shut in for nine weeks.”

Goldberg interrupted him once more, asking, “You didn’t say that some Americans have to make the ultimate sacrifice? You did not say that?”

1. Pick any two out of each hundred that you are ok with dying.

Dr. Oz just said our children should go back to school because only 2-3% of them would die.

5. Another Creme-Poff Masquerading As A Hard Roll, Sir

He loves striking the posture of man who can stand up a brutal reality, but he lacks the intestinal fortitude to follow through face to face.

6. They never think it will be them or anyone in their family.

They always think that the "other people" will be doing the dying. I really want this to hit them hard. Maybe it will wake some of them up.

7. I applaud her tenacity, but she let him get away with a lie that many conservatives have been using.

His lie that "we’ve been shut in for nine weeks" is BS. We never had a nationwide lockdown, which is why people are still dying. Once we start prematurely opening, we'll lose even more people.
