On Monday, Whoopi Goldberg and the liberal hosts of “The View” had a near meltdown, and criticized liberal personality Bill Maher for “flippant” COVID-19 remarks he made about mitigation policies, which Maher called “bananas.”

Maher made his remarks on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” on Friday night.

Goldberg: ‘That’s not really funny to people who have lost their kids’

Goldberg aired a clip of Maher’s opening monologue in which he said, “I don’t want to live in your paranoid world anymore — your masked, paranoid world.”

“You go out — it’s silly now,” Maher continued. “You know you have to have your mask, you have to have a card, you have to have a booster. They scan your head like you’re a cashier and I’m a bunch of bananas.”

As the audience laughed, Maher added, “I’m not bananas — you are.”

Goldberg wasn’t having it.

“How dare you be so flippant, man,” Goldberg said of Maher’s remarks.

“That’s not really funny to people who have lost their kids,” Goldberg said, adding, “or people who have lost family members or dear friends to this.”

“Listen, nobody on the planet really wants to go through this,” Goldberg continued. “This is not something we’re doing because it’s sexually gratifying. This is what we’re doing to protect our families.”

“You don’t have to do it, but stay away from everybody,” she said.

“I want to point out, there are little kids who can’t get vaccinated,” Goldberg went on.

“Lots of people who cannot get vaccinated, so you’re playing Russian roulette with their lives,” Goldberg claimed without evidence.

Last week, Maher made headlines for his remarks in an interview with Deadline.

“Don’t sit there in your white coat and tell me ‘Just do what we say,” Maher said of White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci and the medical community.
