Liberal cohosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on ABC’s The View said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other white Republican men, along with conservative judges, want to bring back measles, black lung and pollute the water.
In a segment praising Joe Biden’s launch into the Democratic 2020 presidential primary, Goldberg and Behar gave a laundry list of negative things that they now blame on conservatives and said that they want to bring them all back.

“This is not new, we know how to deal with this, we know how to clear the air up, we’ve done it,” Goldberg said. “This generation, my generation, your generation [she said while pointing to Behar], we got the water clean, we got black lung gone, we got rid of all this stuff.
“We got rid of Nixon,” Behar said.
“We got rid of measles, the people have been doing this we know how to do this,” Goldberg continued.
“But they’re trying to undo all of that,” Behar said.
“I know, but don’t lose sight that we have done this before, we Americans have done this,” Goldberg said.
Goldberg and Behar’s assertion on measles is particularly tone-deaf in the wake of a recent measles outbreak when officials with the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention are sacrificing and working around the clock to contain the disease.
