“Somebody better step up before you suddenly turn around and they have taken the country and now you have no recourse,” she added.

“Either we fix it now, or he’s gonna walk away with it because his lies are many and they go farther and farther and farther,” Goldberg continued.

Hostin joined in on the criticism, saying “What we’re seeing is a president attempting to steal an election to overturn results and in addition disenfranchise voters of color.”

“The appearance of impropriety that is happening in the Republican Party is disgraceful,” she said.

She added that the senators’ private comments against the president and his actions mean “nothing because every person is watching this not only in this country but around the world.”

Biden has been widely recognized as the president-elect for more than two weeks. But Trump has refused to concede, and his campaign filed several lawsuits contesting the vote in different battleground states.

After the election, Goldberg addressed the president's supporters on "The View," instructing them to "suck it up" and accept defeat after Biden's victory.
