WATCH: 'The View' Co-Host Whoopi Goldberg Says She Wouldn't Ditch Biden Even If He 'Pooped His Pants'

On Monday, "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg explained that she would back President Joe Biden as the Democratic nominee even if he "pooped his pants." The comment comes after multiple Democrat lawmakers, including Reps. Adam Smith (D-WA) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) have called on the 81-year-old Democrat to withdraw from the presidential race after an abysmal debate performance last month.

"I don't care if he's pooped his pants. I don't care if he can't put a sentence together. Show me he can't do the job, and then I'll say, okay, maybe it's time to go. Now he had a bad night the first time that he went up and debated with Kamala Harris, and everyone wanted him to quit then," Goldberg said. "He came back and said, 'You know what, I've got it,' and gave four years. I have poopy days all the time. All the time."

Goldberg then explained that the first debate was just a "bad night" and that fellow Democrats need to be loyal to Biden and support his candidacy given Donald Trump's strength in the polls. "The question now is, because lots of Democrats are coming out are coming out and saying 'find somebody else,' but when we tried to do that with [Donald Trump]...when we said he shouldn't be on the ballot, everybody said 'No, no, no. The people chose him. We can't take him off the ballot.' Well, I don't understand why anybody thinks it's going to be easier to take Biden off the ballot."

President Joe Biden advanced a similar argument in a letter to congressional Democrats on Monday, writing that the Democratic electorate chose him as the party's nominee. "We had a Democratic nomination process, and the voters have spoken clearly and decisively," Biden explained. "This was a process open to anyone who wanted to run. Only three people chose to challenge me. One fared so badly that he left the primaries to run as an independent. Another attacked me for being too old and was soundly defeated. The voters of the Democratic Party have voted. They have chosen me to be the nominee of the party."

"Do we now just say this process didn't matter? That the voters don't have a say?" Biden stated. "I decline to do that. I feel a deep obligation to the faith and the trust the voters of the Democratic Party have placed in me to run this year. It was their decision to make. Not the press, not the pundits, not the big donors, not any selected group of individuals, no matter how well intentioned."
