Whoopi Goldberg Offers To Sit Next To Tiffany Trump At Fashion Week

“I don’t want to talk about your dad, but girl, I will sit next to you because I’ve been there."

Tiffany Trump found a friend in Donald Trump critic Whoopi Goldberg after certain fashion editors refused to sit next to Tiffany at a show during New York Fashion Week. 

Goldberg brought up the incident on Wednesday’s episode of “The View” and said that she would sit next to Trump at the next shows she attended. 

“You know what, Tiffany, I’m supposed to go to a couple more shows. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m coming to sit with you,” Goldberg said, getting heated. “Because nobody’s talking politics. You’re looking at fashion! She doesn’t want to talk about her dad! She’s looking at the fashion!”

The actress then called out an editor at Elle for since-made-private tweets saying she moved away from Trump, while also pointing to tweets from former Wall Street Journal columnist Christina Binkley showing empty seats near Trump. (Binkley told The Huffington Post in an emailed statement that the seats were “almost immediately filled by other guests” and that “they ended up being highly coveted seats.”)

Goldberg then explained the difference between offering to sit next to Tiffany and boycotting or refusing to stock Ivanka Trump’s clothing line.

“That’s all about buying stuff. You’re buying stuff,” the actress said. “This girl is looking at fashion, and she’s just looking at fashion.”

The “View” co-host added, “I just thought it was mean. I don’t want to talk about your dad, but girl, I will sit next to you because I’ve been there, where people say we’re not going to sit next to you. I’ll find your ass and sit next to you!” 

Tiffany seemed happy enough with Goldberg’s offer on Wednesday afternoon and accepted her invitation via Twitter: 

We’ll have to keep at an eye out for these two at upcoming shows.
