Whoopi Goldberg's Crass Bush Joke

By July 23, 2004

Follow me on:

Comedian Whoopi Goldberg was widely criticized after performing a comedy routine at a Kerry-Edwards fundraiser in which she made a crass sexual joke about President Bush. Here's what she said:

"That's why I'm here tonight. Because I love bush. But someone's giving bush a bad name. Someone has tarnished name of `bush.' Someone has waged war, someone has deliberately misled the country, someone has attempted to amend the constitution, all in the name of bush. The bush I know and cherish would never do such things. My bush is smarter than that. And if my bush is smarter than that, you can understand just how dumb I think that other bush is. And anyone who would wave to Stevie Wonder is not fully there. I will do whatever it takes to restore bush to its rightful place and that ain't in the White House. Vote your heart and mind and keep bush where it belongs."
