Whoopi Goldberg has showed support for Democratic lawmakers and has been highly criticial of some Republicans, especially Donald Trump.
The commentator in November of 2020 accused Trump of staging a "coup" and claimed he was behaving like a "dictator" when he refused to admit defeat following the presidential election.
"This is what dictators do when they want to take a country away from its people," Whoopi said.

Her comments came two months before Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6, leaving at least five people dead.
Whoopi and co-host Joy Behar had previously compared footage of Trump supporters surrounding a Joe Biden campaign bus to a film about the Ku Klux Klan.
"I’m here to let you know that that is one of the most dangerous things you can do because buses can’t stop on a dime," Goldberg said at the time.

"When trucks and cars are surrounding people who are just trying to go drive. It was really freaky to see."
Mississippi Burning is a 1988 film loosely based on the murders of civil rights activists James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner in Mississippi in 1964.
The film depicts an FBI investigation into the killings as well as acts of intimidation and violence committed by local members of the Ku Klux Klan.
After the footage appeared online, Trump re-posted it and wrote: "I LOVE TEXAS!"
He later said: "In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong."Most read in CelebrityON THE LOBen Affleck gambles in Las Vegas casino at 3 AM without girlfriend JLoDEADLY COCKTAILRapper Shock G died from an overdose after 'mixing fentanyl and alcohol'KANYE SPOT ITClues Kanye West & Irina Shayk have been secretly dating for MONTHSNOT EVEN KHLO-SEKhloe accused of using 'too much photoshop' as she poses toplessDOUBLE TAKEA-list star's son shares new look on Insta - but do you know who his dad is?PLASTIC FANTASTICWhat K.

Speaking at a rally, he added: "They had ... these, I would say, very good people.
"They were riding along a highway, and you had Sleepy Joe's bus.
"They escorted the bus. And the radical Left said, 'Oh what a horrible thing that is to escort the bus.'"

The drama kicked off between the pair on Wednesday when Golnesa told fans that she was "soooo glad" Kelly had been fired from the RHOC.
Following her comment, Kelly hit back and claimed she didn't even know the Bravo star.
In a now-deleted Instagram video, she said: "I don’t know who this ghoul girl is, goulash, or whatever her name is. I don’t know her!"
Now, Golnesa, who has struggled with her hearing since birth, has taken to Instagram to accuse the ex-RHOC star of racism.View this post on Instagram

Golnesa wrote: "Wow! I am in awe. To ridicule my culture by assassinating my name, is an example of racism. But to make fun of someone's physical disability is simply inhumane.
"On behalf of myself and all of the millions of other people suffering from the inability to hear sounds, I apologize for showing this post, but enough is enough! Let the world see what the truth is about some people."
She added: "Yeah I'm nearly deaf. I read lips and wear hearing aids in both ears. And my name is Golnesa Gharachedaghi!"
Fans rushed to support the star, with one saying: "Wow, stunned by the things said to GG."7Golnesa fired back on InstagramCredit: Getty 7The Shahs of Sunset star said: 'To ridicule my culture by assassinating my name, is an example of racism'Credit: Getty
A second added: "She needs to run far far away. GG you are 110% a better women that she could ever be."
A third wrote: "Just awful of her. Sending you love GG."
Another shared: "Wow her true TRUE colors are really out now that she’s fired."
It comes after a Bravo spokesperson confirmed that Kelly, as well as Braunwyn Windham-Burke, will not be returning for the next season of RHOC following their controversial behavior.7Kelly mispronounced Golnesa's nameCredit: Getty 7Golnesa is one of the many to criticise KellyCredit: NBCU Photo Bank/NBCUniversal via
Fans also learned former star Heather Dubrow is making a return.
Kelly has ruffled plenty of feathers in the last couple of months - she previously sparked outrage when she made a toast to “super spreaders” while partying in a crowded restaurant with Rick and friends.
In the clips, there were people cheering “no masks” at the party, along with cries of "screw Covid."
Kelly would later defend their actions, saying: “I’m getting a lot of hate because we're at a restaurant we’re allowed to be at. We’re allowed to be at a restaurant!”7The Real Housewives Of Orange County star was recently booted from the showCredit: Getty
Drink company Positive Beverage didn't accept Kelly's version of events, however, and gave her the axe for her "controversial views and opinions."
Back in April 2020, Kelly also claimed people who died from Covid would have "died anyway" with or without the virus - and compared it to getting the flu.
Her controversial comments continued months later, when she faced backlash for wearing a novelty hat that read "Drunk Wives Matter" - a play on the Black Lives Matter movement - to a bridal shower.
An insider exclusively told The Sun: "Kelly's comments about Covid, Black Lives Matter and other political and social issues was ultimately the reason she was let go.Most read in CelebrityTRAGIC LOSSAndy Cohen's childhood friend Andy Neiman 'found dead' in Hudson River'WILL ALWAYS LOVE HIM'Brendan Fraser, 52, praised by fans after rare premiere appearance'READY TO CHANGE'Jazz Jennings gained 100 pounds in two years after binge-eating disorderBEACH GETAWAYKim poses in a tiny nude bikini after admitting she wants to ‘erase’ sex tapePicturedKHLOE'S KHAOSKhloe looks solemn on outing with 'cheating' Tristan & daughter TrueExclusiveMEAN GIRL TEIGEN?Chrissy Teigen 'pushed Cameroonian singer Dencia TWICE' at 2016 Grammys
"She's very upset, of course. She feels she was treated unfairly but is excited for her next projects, her career is just taking off.”
Not soon after getting the boot, Kelly ripped fired star Braunwyn, as she shared a text message exchange between the two.
Kelly told the mother of seven: "This is your fault, we'd still be in the show if you didn't make things so dark and ugly and brought all that political 'woke' BS. Your lies about me, calling me a racist and a homophobe were horribly destructive and your phony storylines didn't help either."
Braunwyn, 43, clapped back by saying: "Well, I'm still sober and still gay, like I said, if you ever want to talk, I'm here."Heather says she is ‘disgusted’ by Kelly's behavior in 2016 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County
