ABC’s “The View” issued an apology for claiming that Turning Point USA (TPUSA) “embraced” neo-Nazis at its recent even in Tampa, FL.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Let me make a quick clarification about the neo-Nazis at the Turning Point event. They were outside protestors. My point was more metaphorical. You embraced them at your thing I felt.”

Co-host Sara Haines said, “So, on Monday, we talked about the fact there were openly neo-Nazi demonstrators outside the Florida student action summit of the Turning Point USA group.”

“We want to make clear that these demonstrators were gathered outside the event and that they were not invited or endorsed by Turning Point USA. A Turning Point USA spokesman said the group, quote, ‘100 percent condemns those ideologies,’ and said Turning Point USA security tried to remove the neo-Nazis from the area but could not because they were on public property.”

“Also, Turning Point USA wanted to clarify — wanted us to clarify that this was a Turning Point USA summit and not a Republican party event. So we apologize for anything we said that may have been unclear on these points.”

“Sue the View” began trending on Twitter after outspoken leftist Whoopi Goldberg falsely claimed conservative group “Turning Point USA” allowed neo-Nazis into their event in Tampa, Florida.

Charlie Kirk, the group’s founder, said he’s speaking to lawyers who believe they have a strong defamation case against the liberal television show. Goldberg later attempted to offer a “clarification” that neo-Nazis really means “outside protesters,” which it doesn’t.

The View co-host Sara Haines initially said, “I’ve got a legal note. The conservative group Turning Point USA has condemned the group of neo-Nazis and said they have nothing to do with the organization.”

“Yeah, but where was DeSantis is what I want to know?” Joy Behar responded.

Goldberg attacked TPUSA by saying, “But you let them in. You let them in and you knew what they were. So you are complicit.” Watch the clip below:

Goldberg later stated, “I want to make a quick clarification about the neo-Nazis at the Turning Point event: they were outside protesters.”

“My point was more metaphorical, that you embrace them at your thing, I felt. So I just — they were not in the building. … They were not in the building; they were in the mix of people at the thing,” she added.

More from Daily Wire:

TPUSA tweeted, “After a group of Antifa and left wing protesters showed up, predictably, to protest our event, they eventually dispersed, then minutes later these ‘nazis’ appeared. Who are these people? We have no idea, and ABC and other news media aren’t curious enough to find out.”

“TPUSA students confronted and argued with these individuals,” the organization continued. “Our security attempted to remove the ‘nazis’ but were unable to intervene because they were standing on the public sidewalk. TPUSA students ultimately left the scene, at which point these individuals dispersed.”

The neo-Nazis brandished anti-Semitic material and a sign emblazoned “DeSantis Country” in an apparent attempt to smear him by linking him to their rhetoric.

The organization released a statement declaring, “Turning Point USA 100% condemns those ideologies in the strongest of terms.” They pointed out that the individuals were located on public property, thus TPUSA’s security could not physically remove them, and that TPUSA students initially confronted the group but then left.
