Speaking on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, co-host Whoopi Goldberg blasted the new darling of the Left, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for “pooping” on other Democrats and icily said Ocasio-Cortez should “sit still” and “learn the job” first.

According to Mediate, Goldberg’s comments were prompted by a discussion of Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks during a “60 Minutes” interview with Anderson Cooper.

Mediate reported, “Anderson Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez about her previous intentions to support Democratic primary candidates to unseat incumbent Democrats, which the 60 Minutes correspondent and CNN host noted as ‘politically dangerous tactics.’ Ocasio-Cortez replied, ‘It’s absolutely risky. It requires risk to try something new, but also we-we know so much of what we’ve tried in the past hasn’t worked, either.’”

Goldberg’s remarks started like this:

Listen, let me just say this about Ocasio-Cortez: She just got in on Thursday; she was sworn in, and she is very opinionated, which we like. We like opinionated women. But it is very, very difficult when people make accusations where you say, you know, the Democrats have done nothing, the establishment of the Democrats have done nothing. And I just want to throw this out to you. (Rep.) John Lewis (D-GA) wasn’t sitting still. [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) wasn’t sittin’ still.

There are a whole bunch of people in the Democratic Party who have been busting their a**** to make sure that women get what they need; people get what they need; children get what they need. So you just got in there and I know you got lots of good ideas, but I would encourage you to sit still for a minute and learn the job. And just, you know, there are people in that party who have been working their tails off for this country —

Co-host Joy Behar interrupted, “And they know a lot.”

Goldberg echoed, “And they know a lot and you could learn some stuff from that. And I just feel like, you don’t have to be born into it. You don’t have to know it when you step out, but before you start pooping on people and what they’ve done, you got to do something too.”

She added, “You can’t poop on what was when you’re coming in on the shoulders of quite a few giants.”

After Ocasio-Cortez was elected to Congress, she stated her intention to support Democratic candidates challenging Democrat incumbents, saying, “Long story short, I need you to run for office. All Americans know money in politics is a huge problem, but unfortunately the way that we fix it is by demanding that our incumbents give it up or by running fierce campaigns ourselves. That’s really what we need to do to save this country. That’s just what it is.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who co-founded the group Justice Democrats, which supported Ocasio-Cortez in her bid to oust incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley, added, “We need new leaders, period. We gotta primary folks.”

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “If you’re a strong progressive leader in your community and committed to getting money out of politics, I want you to join me in Congress. I want you to run.”

    Ms.AOC could learn a few things if she used more those big ears she has and kept that even bigger mouth SHUT. I don’t usually like Whoopi Goldberg but she had a point and then some.
    You see , Ms. AoC, you don’t have to be a Democrat or a Republican to be fair and level minded. You claim you are a Democrat but you chose to align yourself with the lowest if the low liberals and,on too of everything, you pretend that just because you have all those “new brilliant ideas” you deserve to have a following?
    I’ve got news for you,uneducated imbecile that you are. READ MORE HISTORY, you may find those “brilliant new ideas ” of yours were OLD in 1930 and did not work. Get your head out of your ass and learn to be civil toward others. Might do you well.

    Whoppi if you would keep that racist big mouth shut and how about this, turn to Jesus and get saved, you would be the woman Jesus wants you to be.You go looking for someone to hate. That is from Satan. You would know that if you knew Christ. I will pray for your Salvation.

    . . . . If she truly wanted to help the country she would pack her bags and leave. While she is doing that she should take the other 30+ million communist aka democrat traitors with her. I could recommend several nice communist dictatorships such as China, Cuba, NK, Russia, or Venezuela. BTW: High Treason and Sedition during Wartime are Capital Offenses.
    . . . . I am a retired Auto Technician that is living on Social Security Disability. I also served in the AF but my disability is not service connected. I am trying to raise the money for me to be able to move back to Texas. I was born there. I am concerned that I may not be able to survive another Wisconsin winter. Here is the link to my GoFundMe page. Please help me out.

    You know what happens when Dems get a majority…the in-fighting begins. They will accomplish nothing when they are this divided. God help us all.

    “People (DEM) there they know a lot? done a lot?” you must be joking. These are career politicians who have lied and done nothing for the people and most of their times is taken up by covering their arses and holding black people back from advancing their lives
