View co-host Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday fought back against liberal outrage in the wake of her comments on bad teachers and tenure. On Monday, the co-host insisted that bad teachers should lose their job, declaring, "You teachers in your unions, you need to say, 'these bad teachers are making us look bad. We don't want it!"...And it has nothing to do with being a liberal or a Democrat. It has to do with being an American."
On Tuesday, the comedienne responded to attacks on Twitter and doubled down: "We were not talking about good teachers who do a great job. We were talking about getting rid of teachers who don't do a good job." She lectured, "My mother was a teacher. So, this is not about bashing teachers and I don't appreciate you misquoting what we said." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]
