Whoopi Goldberg, a host of The View, has told Trump supporters to doubt the validity of President-Elect Joe Biden's victory to "suck it up." President Trump has made accusations of widespread voter fraud in the election, without providing any evidence of such.
"Now I just want to bring something up right now, I want to say to all those people who don’t believe that Americans actually got out and voted, let me say this to you,” Goldberg said during an episode of The View. “When you know who was elected four years ago, Hillary Clinton didn’t say: ‘Hey, wait a minute, this doesn’t feel right, stop the count.’"
“She didn’t say: ‘This isn’t right.’ She didn’t say any of that. So all of you, suck it up. Suck it up like we sucked it up.”
Goldberg went on to offer advice to anyone who is “not comfortable with Joe Biden,” telling viewers: “Do what we did. Find things and then take it to the law, and if the law says it’s something to look at, look at it. But from now on, suck it up.”
Goldberg went on to call out those questioning the validity of the election. “You’re bringing into question all these Americans who voted, legally, came out and stood and voted,” she said. “How dare you question it?”

Goldberg could have been addressing co-host Meghan McCain, who made the false claim that Hillary Clinton “still hasn’t conceded her election.” McCain has since deleted her tweet after people pointed out that Hillary Clinton officially conceded a day after Trump was declared the winner.
In reply to McCain, CNN analyst Joe Lockhart wrote: "Seriously, what is wrong with you. Hillary's speech was one of the most gracious and undeserved moments in our history. @TheView is this the kind of stuff you guys want to be associated with?"
