Latest from Kristine Marsh
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) came to The View on Friday to talk about his book about why socialism is wrong for America. However his ideas were so unpopular with The View hosts and audience that this part of the interview only lasted three minutes.
“Resign! Get Out!” The View co-host Joy Behar demanded of President Trump, to start Thursday’s show. Behar blasted Republicans, who were criticizing the President for pulling U.S. forces out of Syria in the fight against ISIS, but didn’t “stand up” to him over the border family separation policy. Her co-host Sunny Hostin also misled viewers by falsely claiming a Fox News poll showed 25% of Republicans now supported impeachment.
Thursday all three networks reported on President Trump telling reporters Wednesday that the whistleblower is not only a registered Democrat, but actually worked for one of his 2020 rivals. Trump was referencing a report that came out Tuesday and that ABC and CBS had effectively ignored until they were forced to address it on Thursday’s morning shows. While each network touted the whistleblower’s lawyers denials, CBS was the only network to concede that their own reporting corroborated the whistleblower did indeed work for a 2020 rival. ABC, on the other hand, flatly denied this information, claiming this was just a “smear campaign” from the President.
The 2012 Benghazi attacks are suddenly a topic of interest for CNN on Wednesday morning, but only as a tool to criticize Republicans. Smug CNN Newsroom hosts Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto eagerly showcased a clip of former Rep. Trey Gowdy slamming Democrats for withholding information from the Republican led-committee, equating it to what Trump’s administration is doing now with the impeachment inquiry.
Longtime Obama official Susan Rice was guest on Wednesday’s The View, to do what else? Bash the Trump administration. Well that’s not all. Joy Behar also invited Rice to defend her former Obama administration colleague, Vice President Joe Biden, about his Ukraine scandal too, of course.
This ranks up there in the things no one wants to see. Joy Behar, co-host of The View celebrated her birthday with an impeachment-themed rendition of “Joy to the World” on Monday’s show. Behar loved the bastardized version of the religious Christmas carol so much she even joined in the merriment.
Just like in 2016, the networks have done their best to ignore Democrat presidential candidate scandals and lies while harping on everything surrounding Donald Trump. After capitalizing on her grossly exaggerated Native American ancestry, frontrunner Elizabeth Warren has been caught in another lie, by her own words from twelve years ago. However, you wouldn’t know this if you only watched ABC, NBC or CBS.
It was just another day, Friday on The View , where the hosts engaged in the usual overwrought panicking over President Trump. Still talking about the impeachment inquiry, the hosts melted down over Republicans and Trump’s base still standing by the President, even after Democrats revealed text messages from State Department officials, worrying about a quid-pro-quo with Ukraine investigating Joe Biden. Abby Huntsman painted a dystopian picture of America’s future while each host claimed our children’s future was in peril because of Trump.
The View hosts were desperate to make the Joe/Hunter Biden Ukraine controversy go away on Thursday’s show. So much so, that Meghan McCain begged Biden to come out publicly and “explain it away.” On the other hand, her co-host Joy Behar, like the media, didn’t want to touch the topic, to avoid implicating Biden. She complained it was “too complicated.”
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow came to The View midway through Thursday’s show to discuss the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and her new book. During her time there, she defended Adam Schiff’s lies, suggested Vice President Pence would be impeached too, and defended MSNBC as a nonpartisan news network.
ABC’s George Stephanopoulos touted his exclusive interview with Nancy Pelosi on Thursday’s Good Morning America, which was largely friendly to the Democrat House Speaker. In the lengthy aired interview, Stephanopoulos pushed Pelosi to make her impeachment case “more airtight” and eagerly wondered if impeachment “was inevitable.” The ABC anchor even asked Pelosi if she “heard the fear” in President Trump’s voice, pertaining to impeachment.
Chelsea and Hillary Clinton were warmly welcomed on The View Wednesday to plug their new book, but spent nearly the entire interview talking about President Trump’s impeachment, and the 2016 election, instead. Throwing out any pretense of impartiality, the hosts of course began the show urging President Trump’s 2016 rival, to explain why he needs to be impeached.
Who better to comment on the Democrats’ desperate attempt to impeach President Trump, than the Democrat who lost to him in the last election? Hillary Clinton was enthusiastically received on Stephen Colbert’s The Late Show Monday night, along with daughter, Chelsea, to discuss their new book, entitled The Book of Gutsy Women. Of course, the primary reason why Colbert wanted Clinton on his show was to bash President Trump and celebrate the impeachment inquiry.
The View’s diehard liberal co-host Joy Behar admitted it didn’t matter if the unnamed whistleblower had an agenda when putting forth their complaint concerning President Trump’s July phone call with the President of the Ukraine. On today’s show, Behar linked the situation to President Clinton’s impeachment, arguing that he was impeached because of a “partisan” whistleblower, as well.
The View lately has turned into five hosts parroting the same liberal ‘view’ point instead of just 4 hosts doing that. On Monday’s show, the hosts were unified in their disgust for Republicans and conservative media pundits who went on cable news this weekend to question the whistleblower complaint, after new details have come forth. Meghan McCain was more angry than her liberal colleagues, raging that Mark Levin, Lindsey Graham and others were behaving “hysterically” while she simultaneously praised liberal anchors like George Stephanopoulos as reputable journalists.
The View host Joy Behar made a weird argument on Friday’s show about the whole Hunter Biden, Ukraine controversy. The liberal host suggested that because the 2020 presidential candidate and veteran politician suffered a family tragedy decades ago, he should be immune from any Republican attacks which involved his 49-year-old son.
After Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff’s embarrassing display during Thursday’s hearing, where he fabricated quotations from President Trump and then claimed it was a “parody,” the hosts of the View Friday responded to his performance art in very different ways. Surprisingly liberal host Joy Behar wasn’t a fan, but her co-host Sunny Hostin couldn’t be more enthusiastic in her praise, declaring Schiff “the man.”
As is often the case, ABC misled its audience by tweeting a deceptive headline and story, only to issue a correction after the damage was done. To make matters worse, the network doubled down on their spurious story by giving it airtime on Good Morning America, Thursday morning in two separate segments.
The liberal hosts of ABC’s The View on Wednesday couldn’t hold back their excitement over House Democrats launching an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Co-host Sunny Hostin even claimed that impeachment would be good for the country and “unify” Americans, while co-host Joy Behar huffed that polls showing otherwise until this point were only because most Americans outside of the media weren’t paying attention to the damage President Trump was doing to the country.
A fight broke out between the hosts of The View to start off Tuesday’s show, as the liberal hosts practically salivated at the idea that Democrats were seriously pursuing impeachment now because of the whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s alleged promise to the president of the Ukraine. But Meghan McCain argued Americans wouldn’t side with Democrats on this one, even calling out her fellow co-hosts for sounding the alarm on impeachment the last time a Republican was in office.
