Whoopi Defends: 13 Famous Men Whoopi Goldberg Has Stood Up For

In my opinion, Whoopi Goldberg’s most memorable role is not Deloris in “Sister Act” and “Sister Act 2,” or Oda Mae in “Ghost,” or even Guinan on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” No, to me, Whoopi will always be best known for playing Devil’s advocate each and every goddamn time some asinine man, usually famous, gets in trouble for offensive and controversial remarks or actions. (Unfortunately for Whoopi, the Devil doesn’t pay for her services.) Seriously, if you are a dude making headlines for saying/doing something shitty, the rest of the country may be facepalming, but Whoopi’s got your back! To compile this list of all the dumbass dudes Whoopi has caped for, I simply typed “Whoopi defends” into Google — and the results spoke for themselves…

“The View” Names Its New Ignorant Blonde Lady Co-Host

While Elisabeth Hasselbeck was annoying, her only crime was blindly regurgitating conservative talking points, a mere misdemeanor in the grand pantheon of crimes commit by television talking heads. So when the time came to choose a new blonde lady, “The View” producers sought out someone whose views are actually responsible for the deaths of children: Jenny McCarthy. Monday morning, Barbara Walters announced that part-time actress and full-time fear-monger Jenny McCarthy would be joining the show as a co-host. Read more on Celebuzz…

Michelle Obama kept it classy on “The View” this morning, as always. The First Lady gamely fielded questions about the president tucking her into bed at night and whether she would ever consider running for office. (Answer: hell no!) She also discussed the continued prevalence of racism in this country. But I was most interested in hearing her discuss how the Obamas raise their daughters and make sure Malia and Sasha are happy, even with all the craziness swirling around them. “The thing I always want my girls to know is their life is good either way,” she said. “They understand their world is secure no matter what. They’ve grown to understand home is wherever we are. … Dad is always going to be Dad.” Well said. [Mediaite]

President Obama appeared on “The View” today, and damn, the talk was serious as if he appeared on “Meet The Press.” But there were very serious matters to discuss: last week’s announcement that the president believes lesbians and gays should be allowed to marry, the economy, and of course whether or not Mitt Romney is “a rich man who is out of touch” with average Americans. All the president will say about that last point is that Romney’s financial success should be celebrated, but as a politician he has “a different vision on how to move the country forward.”

After the serious talk, the ladies quizzed the president on his pop culture knowledge, including (gulp!) 50 Shades Of Grey. Hear his response, after the jump:
