The spill was triggered when a BP rig collapsed in April, and Goldberg made it clear she is furious over failed efforts to stop the leak - as experts warn oil could soon spread up the southern East Coast.

Pointing into the camera, she shouted, "BP doesn't have an answer... When the people who built the rig, they don't know how to take care of an issue that they were supposed to be prepared for, I don't care about the politics! I don't give a damn! Somebody implode the thing, get another bl**dy cap on it, I don't care, but fix it. Because it's going into the ocean and I'm sick of the time you are taking to take care of this!"
