The ABC daytime talk show host comes back feisty from a two-week hiatus and dominates the first portion of Hot Topics
The View host Whoopi Goldberg wasted no time firing back Tuesday at Seth Rogen and director Michael Moore for their comments about film American Sniper, which surpassed $105 million in a record-breaking MLK-weekend box office.
Rogen had tweeted that the Oscar-nominated film reminded him of a scene in Inglourious Basterds. Moore, meanwhile, tweeted that his father taught him snipers are cowards.
We stood behind you Seth with your movie, and we said you had the right to make the movie you wanted to make. Give them the same respect, because we stood behind them. Michael Moore, you know better, said Goldberg, who returned to the ABC daytime talk show from a two-week hiatus while she nursed a bulging disc in her back.
My brother came through the 60s, she said. If youve ever been to war, you can call people all kinds of names. Until the bombs are exploding around you, and people are dying around you, you need to be a little more sensitive, dudes. I get that youre creative types, but so are they. So back up, or not?
Co-host Nicolle Wallace chimed in.
These guys die so people like Michael Moore and Seth Rogen can say this stuff. So, the next time they trash a movie about Americas heroes they should add a little thank you, Wallace said. They compared these guys to Nazis
Its offensive. Its reprehensible, and I think the military should boycott Seth Rogens crappy movie.(continued)

Well I’ll be damned!
Some good news for a change.
This movie, American Sniper, is getting untold amounts of free publicity, everywhere you turn, people are discussing it, pro and or con. I know Clint E. is dee-lighted to be 84 y/o, and still have such a national impact with his movies.
Wow-I just saw the devil ice skating, and a pig just flew by my window-I agree with Whoopi Goldberg.
She sees the writing on the wall. But I don't expect it to last. This was a one-time deal.
Yeah, but obama is still the antichrist.
A broken clock....
Well there ya go-Pigs flying. The Apocalypse cometh.
I don’t listen to anything “he” has to say !
She’s jumping on the popularity band wagon to save what little career she has...too bad she didn’t stay in the temporal vortex for good....oh wait...that was just a movie....too bad...
Whoopie knows enough to keep her mouth shut on certain issues. She has been burned before.
She is just warning her kindred spirits...nothing more
It’s seems those who enter the Nexus always remain there forever in some form.
Probably the weakest plot (plotz?) device of any ST viewing since the Black and White cookie people or the Space Hippies of Eden.
She’s just trying to stay on the air. I don’t think she really means it.
Must have been the pain mess ‘talking’.
Mess = Meds
