Aug 04 (TheWrap.com) - Whoopi Goldberg tore apart Donald Trump in the most “respectful” way possible on Monday's “The View” when discussing his tweets about two Americans who contracted the Ebola virus while treating an outbreak in West Africa. 

“I don't really know how to respond to it in a polite way,” Goldberg said. “I like Donald, I try to be respectful, but this was an idiotic comment.”

Trump took to Twitter on Friday to protest the return of Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol to the United States, where they are receiving treatment for the deadly virus at Emory University Hospital.

“Stop the EBOLA patients from entering the U.S. Treat them, at the highest level, over there. THE UNITED STATES HAS ENOUGH PROBLEMS,” Trump tweeted. “The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!” 

Goldberg said she understands why Trump would be fearful of the virus hitting American soil, but stressed it “doesn't carry in the wind” and can only be spread through bodily fluids. 

“I'm not defending him, but he is also a friend of mine, so I don't want to be disrespectful to him, but that was a stupid comment,” Goldberg said. “Do your homework, Donald. Just do your homework.”
