Whoopi Goldberg Compares Trump to the Taliban – What could go Wrong?

Co-host of “The View” Whoopi Goldberg attempted on Tuesday to compare and contrast (mainly compare) the fledgling administration of Donald Trump with the Taliban. Never mind that it’s the sort of analogy that sent the Left into a rage when the target was Barack Obama.
