Today Show anchorette Savannah Guthrie calls Whoopi Goldberg a ‘national treasure’

Whoopi Goldberg is a lot of things.  She is an apologist for child rapist Roman Polanski (“it wasn’t rape rape”). She is a supporter of Hamas. She is a person who plays fast-and-loose with facts (see here, here, and here).

But we’re not quite sure we’d agree that Goldberg is a “National Treasure.” Many tweeters seem to feel the same way:

  • TexasMeow

    Whose nation was she referring to? Maybe Palestine…..because that would make more sense.

  • trekmyer

    Quote-I think I’m gonna hurl-Unquote

  • Randal Redder

    Maybe she thought Whoopi was in the movie “National Treasure?”

    • TheOriginalDonald

      Caryn Johnson and Diane Kruger do NOT look alike.

  • Steve_J

    A booby prize, maybe.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Participation trophy?

  • $24835958

    Savannah Guthrie is a very ignorant woman.

  • Sterling Hallbrook

    Unfortunately, not buried treasure.

    • Brian Bennett

      Maybe, for the sake of future generations, we could bury her?

    • doc255

      I’ve got a spare litterbox I’m not using…..

      • Brian Mouland

        Please I own cats!

    • my preciousss!!

      buried crap more like it.

  • Grumpa Grumpus

    Progressives have been devaluating our National Treasure since the Central Bank—

    Mixing it with muck could make it much worse— polluted is polluted after all.

    I can’t get over how lumpy her face is. Daily beatings with an Uglystick™ perhaps?

    : emulation of Progressive-style humor.
    I think I need more practice, I haven’t gotten the degree of viciousness down correctly.

    • Midnight Cow

      lol @ Uglystick™

      Whoopi is an embarrassment.

  • radjahshelduck

    National treasure? She looks like the horse from National Velvet.

    • Garth Haycock

      Why insult a horse?

    • Brian Mouland

      More like its arse

  • TocksNedlog

    Methinks Miss Savannah done been dippin’ into the holiday cider a bit too early in the day!

  • Brett McMicken

    considering the source, it’s no shock what she said.

  • Joe W.

    That racist witch is more of a national disgrace, than treasure. But, it IS NBC, after all.

    • Andy Hebert

      I’m not sure if Goldberg is a racist, but she likes to date white men.

      • Joe W.

        She’s a racist, all right.

      • Jillane Kent

        Google is your friend, Andy. A simple search will show you evidence of the hatred that resides in her heart.

    • plower

      Roger that, but it is not only Whoppi, who is an obvious racist, but this statement makes Savannah an askisin racist as well. In that world though, a statement like that just might get her a promotion and a pat on the head. Good doggy!

  • LightSabre

    Look at Whoopi Goldberg. Listen to Whoopi Goldberg. Can you believe what our country and culture has come to that something like that is a movie star as well as a TV talkshow star? Makes millions/year. Jesus H. Christ, WTF has happened to this country?

  • mkreider

    This means that our country is in really deep trouble is Whoopi Goldberg is a national treasure…I guess we really are broke.

  • Tanker74

    I think I just threw up turkey in my mouth a little.

  • Brent Guthrie

    I don’t know about national treasure. She certainly could be considered “special.”

  • terrence chaplin

    my dog leaves better “treasures” in the yard. who the hell are they kidding!!!??

  • roycoleman

    its time to take nbc and its affliates off the air

  • terrence chaplin

    I think Bill Maher would actually “do her”, ah….ICK!!

    • tsluf273

      Thanks for that image. =P

    • Chris Clinkinbeard

      Ted Danson did, while in “blackface”. Google it.

  • Adela Wagner

    Whoopi is a National Embarrassment. And she creeps me out when that commercial comes on where she tells you about pissing on herself…ewww. Obviously her mouth is not ALL she can’t control.

  • Andy Hebert

    I’m not fond of either woman. I have watched Guthrie on the Today show a few times. She comes across as a spoiled little rich girl to me. Whoopi I used to like…in the 80’s.

    • TugboatPhil

      Until you saw Jumping Jack Flash…right??

      • Raejean

        I enjoyed her in “Ghost” and in “The Color Purple.” Everything else I have ever watched her perform in and everything I have learned and witnessed about her personally is worthless, overrated crap.

  • James McLarey

    All you people who don’t think she is a treasure are racist!

  • Brian Roastbeef

    Whoopi Goldberg is indeed a National Treasure.

    And by that I mean they should stick her in a cave for 200 years until Nicolas Cage finally bothers to solve the clues and go find her.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      with the help of Jon Voight and Justin Bartha

  • Raejean

    Treasure someone buried along with their refuse; the dog dug it up and the cat dragged it back in.

  • Ms MoomMist

    Too bad she doesn’t take her “hard” earned dollars and move to Palestine, then her face could really be covered up.

  • Denise Sanchez

    Treasure? Like fools gold?

  • disqus_dave

    She is a national treasure. She’s a work of art from the olden days. Sculpture of primitive tribes.

  • Brian Mouland

    Old,dusty and probably should be locked up in a box pretty much describes Whoppi


    she is a RACIST thru and thru.

  • mhojai

    Quite an indictment against a country to pronounce such garbage a “treasure.” Very skewed set of values.

  • TheOriginalDonald

    AFAIK Whoopi and Nicolas Cage do NOT look alike.

  • Guest

    Savannahs little teeth and big gums are creepy. I won’t ever watch again unless they bring Ann back.

    • Kenna Neel

      And I still won’t watch then.

  • Gallatin

    Another example of why I don’t watch the Today show. savannah here are two examples of National Treasures to wrap your little mind around; The Declaration of Independence, and The U.S. Constitution. Whoop de doo goldberg is not a National Treasure.

  • beadstallcup

    Whoopi Goldberg, a national treasure? HaHaHa. HaHaHa HaHaHa. That’s a joke, right?

  • NotaLemming

    National Treasure? Nobel Peace Prize? Sure sure. Propagandize we much and to must we much we will.

  • DavidKramer

    Ms. Rape Rape herself. Yeah, quite the treasure, someone that excuses a pederast rapist because he is a lefty just like her.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Did this cause Al Roker to go into another 30 second death stare?

  • philomena

    Did you ever hear her laughable explanation as to why she chose “Goldberg” as her last name? A direct slap in the face at people named “Goldberg,” with a very cynical reason behind her choice of name. She happened to find the pot of gold at the end of the guilty liberal lefty rainbow.

    • CherDash

      @disqus_RR0riRTfF6:disqus No, I haven’t heard. What was her reason for calling herself Goldberg?

      • philomena

        Actually, it was pretty cynical and illustrated her own narrowness of thought, or I should say her mother’s. Her real name is Caryn Elaine Johnson. Her mother didn’t think “Johnson” sounded Jewish enough to make it in Hollywood. Even more cynical, she tried to attach herself by way of genealogy to Sephardic Jews years later. Do I have to explain what her thought and then deed demonstrates, or do you get it?

        • CherDash

          Oh, I get it, it’s sickening, and I knew her real name, I just didn’t know the reasoning behind her stage name. Thank you for the explanation.

          • philomena

            You’re entirely welcome.
