Whoopi Goldberg is taking a stand at New York Fashion Week.
At the Phillip Plein show on Monday, Tiffany Trump was left sitting alone after several magazine editors moved so they wouldn’t have to be near President Donald Trump’s daughter. Some even tweeted that they had changed seats, with former Wall Street Journal columnist Christina Binkley posting photos of the 23-year-old with empty seats beside her.
The snub became the subject of conversation on Wednesday’s episode of The View, where Goldberg defended the University of Pennsylvania graduate and offered to sit next to her at future shows.
“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,” the outspoken actress, 61, said. “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!”

Tiffany accepted Goldberg’s offer on Twitter Wednesday. “Thank you @WhoopiGoldberg I’d love to sit with you too!” she wrote, adding a smiling face emoji.

Goldberg, who has been a vocal opponent of the new president, noted there was a difference between the movement of boycotting Ivanka Trump’s clothing line and the cold shoulder given to Tiffany. “And people say what is the difference between people boycotting Ivanka. There is a difference,” she said on The View. “That’s all about buying stuff. You’re buying stuff. This girl is looking at fashion, and she’s just looking at fashion. I just thought it was mean.”
