The moderator of "The View" delivered a searing takedown of a "fake news" story that circulated last week, falsely claiming she said Navy SEAL widow Carryn Owens appeared at Donald Trump's speech before Congress for the "attention."
During Monday's episode, Goldberg made it clear she didn't take the allegations lightly -- and she's "coming for" the man who wrote them.
"Something came out on a fake news website about me and it endangered my family's life and endangered my life," Goldberg said. "I have had for the last 20 years great relationships with vets and their wives, so when someone writes a bit of a horrible lie as this man did, he accused me of saying that the woman that was celebrated by the current president was doing it for the attention."
"If I hadn't been made aware of this, I could have found out about this at the end of a barrel of a gun," she said. "I'm going to try to get some legislation going that says if you're doing to involve someone in fake news, you should have their permission. Clearly, you don't care what could have happened to me or to my family. Costa Rica's not big enough for this lawsuit that's coming your way."
The Underground Report, the site which Goldberg's referring, says its stories "are fiction, and presumably fake news."
"Just so we're really clear, I want these protections in place for the current president, for his family, my family. If you write something like that or write something that endangers his his family's life, I'm just as angry at you," Goldberg continued.
"The fact that you don't give a crap that it endangered me is unconscionable," she added, "I'm gonna get my lawyer and I'm coming for you."
