Whoopi Goldberg told fans Monday that she is essentially living in her own version of “Dante’s Inferno” due to President Trump and the upcoming election. 

The lead voice of ABC’s “The View” reacted to Mr. Trump’s recent campaign rhetoric by saying he leaves her in a perpetual state of anger and “depression.”

“I’m in a depression now because of him,” she said after watching the Republican talk about the coronavirus pandemic and the economic consequences of electing Democrat Joseph R. Biden. “Every time I see him, he depresses me. Everything he says is pissing me off and depressing me.”

The president reiterated over the weekend that Mr. Biden lacks the ability to negotiate with foreign nations from a position of strength.

Mr. Trump, who recently recovered from the virus, added that his opponent’s preferred policies regarding the pandemic would leave the nation in economic ruin.

“If you vote for Biden, he will surrender your jobs to China. He will surrender your future to the virus. He’s going to lock down,” Mr. Trump said. “He’s going to want us to lock down. He’ll listen to the scientists. If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression instead of — we’re like a rocket ship.”

Ms. Goldberg was not impressed.

“I’m getting off the rocket he’s on,” she said. “That’s ridiculous, but we’re about two weeks away from this election.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin blamed the president for 200,000 coronavirus deaths before adding, “I’m actually disgusted this morning to hear [his comments]. I’m disgusted.”
