I see why Mitt Romney is scared of Whoopi Goldberg — she goes for the jugular. Ann Romney made an appearance on “The View” and was asked by Goldberg how she can explain to mothers of killed soldiers that her sons didn’t serve in the military. Uncomfortable but right, since Mitt Romney seems to want to send our troops to fight wars in Syria and Iran. One thing I can say, most soldiers would opt for a LDS mission than to serve on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan during the height of the war. The Romneys continue to show just how out-of-touch they are with the majority of Americans. There sense of entitlement is nauseating. Actually, it’s called WHITE PRIVILEGE, hence Tagg Romney’s behavior at a black man, President Obama, calling out his father, the ultra rich white dude.
“OK, um, well I say that, what I read about your husband, what I read, and maybe you can correct this, is that the reason that he didn’t serve in Vietnam was because it was against the religion,” Goldberg asked.
“He was serving his mission,” Romney responded. “My five sons have also served their mission. None served in the military.” Romney later added, “I sent them away boys and they came back men.”
“So when you’re facing these mothers whose children have not come back, how will you explain to them that your sons haven’t gone?” Goldberg pressed.
“I think it’s the hardest thing that a president will probably do,” she said. She added that while governor of Massachusetts, her husband “went to every funeral … and it was the hardest thing [he] had to do.” Source
Of course, President Obama didn’t serve in the military either, so let me just put that out there before people say I am biased.
Wow — Whoopi asks Ann Romney how she can explain to mothers of killed soldiers that her sons didn’t serve.
