There could not be a better example of liberal media double standards than the kerfuffle over former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin posing in front of Hillary Clinton’s White House portrait (as First Lady) with rock stars Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. The ladies of The View had their knickers in a knot.
It must be a requirement on ABC’s The View that the hosts create scandals out of nonsense just to have something to whine about. As proof, Friday’s show began with host Joy Behar complaining about what she called the “saddest day in the history of the White House,” (and surprisingly she didn’t say it was the day Donald Trump was elected!)
The hosts at The View couldn’t have been more thrilled with the news that Fox News ousted their longtime primetime personality Bill O’Reilly after multiple accusations of sexual abuse from female staffers and anchors. On the Thursday show, Whoopi excitedly told the audience that O’Reilly was “out” to loud applause, before boasting that the women at The View actually “broke with Bill” years ago, during a 2010 appearance on their show.
On Monday's The View on ABC, co-host Whoopi Goldberg made a point of chastising President Donald Trump -- whom she always refers to as "the new guy" or "you know who" -- because he recently forgot to put his hand over his heart until wife Melania reminded him as the national anthem was being sung. As she suggested that "any adult" who hears the anthem should reflexively remember the proper etiquette, she seemed oblivious to the fact that, in 2007, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama made the same mistake as he infamously forgot to hold his hand over his heart at an event while the anthem was being sung.
The liberal ladies at the View couldn’t contain their anger after Vice President Mike Pence made an unannounced visit to the South Korean border late Sunday night, to issue a stern warning to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, after weeks of the country conducting missile tests. Hosts Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg complained the loudest, with Hostin and Whoopi actually arguing that North Korea would respond to “diplomacy.”
The Evancho siblings have earned lots of news coverage this year. Sixteen-year-old Jackie was criticized by the LGBT community for singing the national anthem at Donald Trump’s inauguration, largely because her older sibling Juliet is transgender.
Susan Sarandon is a big-time Bernie fan. But since Donald Trump’s win, Hillary Clinton supporters have harassed the actress so much that she's had to change her phone number. So much for liberal tolerance. On April 12, Sarandon joined the ladies of The View to discuss her role as Hollywood legend Bette Davis in FX’s Feud. But, inevitably, the election came up too.
Friday morning on The View, the show started off with a fiery exchange over the U.S. missile strike in Syria last night. The panel was strictly divided, with conservative hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila fiercely disagreeing with liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin that the missile strike was unconstitutional.
Reacting to the air strikes ordered by President Trump, Good Morning America journalist Martha Raddatz on Friday assailed the “horrific chemical attack” by Syria’s dictator. Given that the war criminal Bashar al-Assad brutally massacred over 70 of his own people, the journalists at ABC might be embarrassed at how, through the years, they fawned over the “charming,” “intelligent,” “thoughtful” Assad.
Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The View on ABC, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris smeared President Donald Trump as "the poster child for white supremacy" as he complained about several black celebrities who have embraced the Republican President. Harris: "What about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community that was done? And what about him being the poster child for white supremacy and standing for the people who look to devalue our lives?" Liberal co-host Joy Behar then hyperbolically injected: "And destroy the world."
Tuesday on The View, host Whoopi Goldberg was adamant that schools needed to provide free birth control to teenagers without parental consent, because they “don’t teach sex education at school.” Whoopi first made this strange allegation on a February 2 show, when she said that a school shouldn’t have to notify parents before putting condoms in the boys' and girls' bathrooms.
During a segment talking about Russia, North Korea, and Trump’s relationship with these countries on The View Monday, host Joy Behar threw a temper tantrum, calling on the president to be impeached. After reading out-of-context quotes from Trump about using nukes, Behar couldn’t contain her rage any longer and demanded that Trump be “taken out of office,” to roaring applause from the liberal audience.
