A "whoops" by Whoopi. ‘The View’ co-host fired off a "gotcha" question at Ann Romney in Thursday morning’s show, only to get shut down. The topic, Ann’s Mormon faith.
Whoopi Goldberg: “As first lady, if you get the job, it's going to entail a lot of things, and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars. Now, I know -- I believe that your religion doesn't allow you to go fight.”
Ann Romney: “No, that's not correct. We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in armed services.”
Whoopi, believing an article she read about Mitt Romney, learned the hard way you can't believe everything you read.
Goldberg: “Okay, um, I say that because when I read about your husband, what I had read, and maybe you can correct this is that the reason that he didn't serve in Vietnam was because it was against the religion. That's what I read.”
Romney: “No, that's not correct. He was serving his mission and you know my five sons have also served missions. None served in the military.”
Fox News was quick to point out this interview with Ann was much more hard hitting than an interview with the President Obama and First Lady Michelle just weeks ago. As a matter of fact, they called that interview, a "love fest."
