Whoopi Goldberg fails to perform simple Google search before posing ‘gotcha’ question to Ann Romney

Ann Romney appeared on The View and fielded what was an attempt at a “gotcha” question from Whoopi Goldberg, but I don’t think Whoopi got the payoff she was looking for:

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, ya know… uh, from wars. Now I know, I believe that your religion doesn’t allow you to go fight…

Romney: No, that’s not correct

Goldberg: Ok, so…

Romney: We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in the armed services.

Goldberg: Ok, umm…

It went on a little from there, but Goldberg helps us segue into today’s talk show host protip: Always try to know what the answer’s going to be before reaching into the bag of trick questions out of an eagerness to put your guest on the spot, lest you fall into your own trap:

Does Goldberg have an aversion to a simple Internet search that could have helped her avoid looking foolish? For example, it took me all of 15 seconds to find this page.

Ann Romney’s response totally ruined a follow up question that Whoopi had in the hopper: “So what’s up with your people churning butter all the time?”
