WHOOPI DEFENDS EX-CO-STAR FROM ACCUSATIONS OF RACISM...AGAIN

It's not Mel Gibson this time.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, cohost of "Fox & Friends," suggested that the late Sandra Bland could have attacked a Texas law enforcement officer with her cigarette.  She suggested maybe the officer was afraid.


"But, what if, I mean, there are times, I'm sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer, maybe chucked it at him, pushed it at him," Hasselbeck said during the segment.  "If he indeed felt it could be a potential threat, was that the wise thing to do?"

There was backlash for this race-based, race-biased stupidity that she rarely got while on "The View."

Whoopi defends her?  Really? REALLY?
