Friday on ABC’s The View, the show immediately began by lamenting loudly over the proposed 2018 budget, released Thursday. Host Joy Behar complained that she couldn’t wait to bring up the topic because it was “so horrific and so horrendous:”
In his first remarks this week to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employees, Secretary of HUD Ben Carson called slaves “immigrants,” that had hopes for the American Dream, comments that sent the media in an uproar. From print to television to social media, journalists and celebrities alike condemned the remarks as extremely offensive. Yet the media forgot that former President Obama has also compared slaves to immigrants, and not just once, but several times.
As NewsBusters has previously reported, many actors and other liberals in the entertainment industry have gone
out of their way to criticize Donald Trump since the Republican was elected president on November 8. The latest addition to this list is British actor Patrick Stewart, who is best known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the Star Trek: The Next Generation franchise and Professor Charles Xavier, telepathic leader of mutant heroes from the X-Men movies.
Like many other people in the “mainstream media," the female panelists on ABC's The View weekday program were delighted to move on from the positive response to Donald Trump's speech on Tuesday night to a topic that enabled them to vent their animosity toward the president and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is under fire regarding his testimony during his confirmation hearing.
Wednesday on ABC’s The View the panel blasted Trump for honoring the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL at last night’s address before Congress. Host Sunny Hostin had the harshest take, calling the move “exploitative,” even blaming Trump for the veteran’s death.
Some people sure can hold a grudge. One of those is Rosie O'Donnell, a former co-host on ABC's The View weekday program who's been in a feud with Donald Trump ever since they began sparring more than a decade ago.
In the latest clash between the liberal comedian and the current occupant of the White House, O'Donnell will take part in a “Resistance Address” slated to take place in Washington's Lafayette Park on Tuesday just hours before Trump gives his first address to the members of Congress.
On Friday's The View on ABC, as Breitbart News senior editor at large Joel Pollak appeared as a guest, co-host Sunny Hostin tried to claim that White House advisor and former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon is someone who has made a "laundry list" of "bigoted statements," but, when pressed, failed to name a single example. The segment began with co-host Joy Behar recalling that some liberals have called the website "white supremacist," as she asked her guest how he would describe it.
Friday on the View, the panel talked about the Oscars and whether or not it was a good idea to make a political speech from the stage. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin pounced on the notion, saying the Oscars was the opportune moment for actors to be political, while Jedediah Bila blasted the move as alienating viewers with different beliefs.
As Republicans work to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the left is fighting tooth and nail to keep it alive, from hyping scare stories of what could happen if it is repealed, to flat-out denying the devastating effects it has caused on so many families. On Thursday’s the View, the liberal hosts on the panel staunchly defended the universal health care law, arguing in circles with the only host critical of the law, Jedediah Bila. Whoopi Goldberg even tried to reason away the negative effects of the law as the insurance companies’ fault.
Media bias, it’s been a problem since... Fox News? That’s the claim from liberal View co-host Joy Behar on Tuesday as she bashed “pathological liar” Donald Trump. After hailing the need for the press to nail the President, whom she compared to Richard Nixon, token non-liberal Jededia Bila educated Behar: “[Some Americans] do feel betrayed by many in media. They do feel that media is biased.”
On Monday’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg highlighted a famous black American, as the panel has done every day in February in honor of Black History Month. Since today is Presidents Day, naturally the honored person was President Barack Obama. But since it was Obama, the normally short segment turned into an all-out gush fest, touting a long list of his liberal accomplishments that supposedly brought the country together.
On Thursday’s The View, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar praised the intelligence community for leaking confidential information to the press, calling them “whistleblowers.” During a segment on the confidential leaks, only host Jedediah Bila argued that these leaks were as problematic as what the story they revealed. Hostin fought back, repeatedly stating, “The leak is not the story!”
