Yes, she doesn't trust that his medical judgement is right, but she wants him to tell it to liberal groups. The point, though, was about republican LEADERS not wearing masks, and putting down people who wear masks - making derogatory comments about social distancing, talking about how people can choose to wear masks or not. THAT is the issue. Not whether people who gather are on the left or right, but the leadership of the country encouraging safe practices.

OK - here's my guess. Based on nothing than watching Whoopi for years.
Whoopi once had a line of socks. then she had her ugly christmas sweaters. Didn't she say she MADE the crown? Maybe she is thinking - with everyone doing online videos for work, for family get-togethers, doing everything through zoom or something similar - can she cash in on it by coming out with a line of crowns, tiaras, jewel-studded headbands, animal ears, etc. kind of similar to how Disney has expanded their classic "mickey ears" to 100 different themes. Perhaps WHoopi wants people to start asking about her crown. then she'll be telling us that so many people asked where they could buy one, that she decided to create and market a line of headwear for online meetings.
