Whoopi Goldberg Praises Mattress Mack, Hopes He Gets Medal Of Freedom


Whoopi Goldberg had some very kind words for Houston's own Mattress Mack this morning on The View. After the Gallery Furniture icon appeared on ABC's Good Morning America this morning to talk about the crisis here in the city and his efforts to help, the hosts of The View took note.

Goldberg in particular had high praise for the way Jim McIngvale always steps up for the people of his city, saying that he she hopes to see him receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She read a quote from Mack about opening up his store as a shelter/warming center and providing meals for those in need, and then listed off some of his efforts during Hurricane Harvey and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Awesome to see Mattress Mack get this kind of well-deserved praise at the national level. Check out the clip below.
