Latest from Kristine Marsh
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.
The View co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Joy Behar clashed on Tuesday’s show over the left’s messaging on climate change. After Whoopi Goldberg praised 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s disturbing speech yesterday at the United Nations, an argument ensued between the liberal hosts and Huntsman. While the moderate host slammed the hysterical, fearmongering from Thunberg and the left on climate change, Behar raged that we needed the younger generation to lead the way because older “deniers” didn’t love their grandchildren, enough.
As exposed by Breitbart, it appears another editor at The New York Times has a history of making anti-Semitic and anti-white tweets. What’s more, this same editor worked on the Times’ infamous 1619 project, which “reframes” America under the lens of racism and slavery. This comes after several other high-level employees at the paper were found to have made racist remarks on their social media accounts.
It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
The three major broadcast networks spent time promoting radical environmental activism on Friday’s morning broadcasts. Teens and children conducted a global “strike” this morning against climate change ahead of a United Nations summit on the subject. ABC, NBC and CBS couldn’t get enough of the youths' liberal activism, gushing about the kids as young as 9 years old walking out of school to “lead the way” in the political movement.
It seems every week the media spends day after day obsessing over another anonymously-sourced report that makes claims no one can back up. Thursday, journalists were in a frenzy over a Washington Post report which alleged an anonymous “whistleblower” who formerly worked for an intelligence agency, claimed President Trump had promised something “troubling” to an unnamed foreign leader earlier this Summer. Frenzy over the story also hit the ladies at the View table, who worried that the Department of Justice was “covering up” the alleged scandal to protect Trump. Only co-host Meghan McCain had the nerve to point out the media hypocrisy on this topic.
Comedian Chelsea Handler loves being browbeaten about her white privilege by woke millennial college students, apparently. On The View Wednesday, she admitted that in her new Netflix documentary about white privilege, she visited a liberal college campus where black students “took her to task” her about her own privilege. Handler said she even took sexual harassment and racial sensitivity classes, which “everyone” should be taking, she said.
Wednesday on The View, the panel roundly criticized former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. As Democrats aggressively grilled Lewandowski, he refused to answer several questions and even slammed the media at one point. View co-host Joy Behar raged against both Lewandowski and Brett Kavanaugh’s temperament during their respective hearings as worse than “murderers and pimps.”
MSNBC commentator Elie Mystal is pretty proud of how much he hates the President, and apparently anyone who lives in one of his properties. So much so, that he boasted on Twitter that he fantasizes driving his car into a Trump condominium lobby.
New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly were grilled on Tuesday’s The View for omitting crucial information in their hit piece against Brett Kavanaugh published over the weekend. While Meghan McCain slammed the op-ed as a “hatchet job,” Pogrebin and Kelly acted as if they were innocent bystanders only out to seek the truth on Kavanaugh. Pogrebin self-righteously claimed they had no agenda to push and President Trump was merely using the paper for his “political purposes.”
While the news media spent all of Monday hyping the latest smear from Democrats against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, comedian Trevor Noah continued the trend into late night. The Daily Show host mocked the conservative justice as a drunk exhibitionist who was constantly “whipping his di** out” and even compared him to accused sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
The View’s “moderate” co-host Abby Huntsman came out swinging against the New York Times Monday morning, for publishing a hit piece that was full of holes against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Nearly a year after his nomination was tarnished by a media-hyped unsubstantiated accusation of attempted rape, the paper was back at it again this weekend publishing another dubious account of sexual misconduct that was even not corroborated by the alleged victim herself. Huntsman gave the liberal paper a harsh rebuke, warning them that they were helping to re-elect President Trump.
All three networks eagerly promoted a new allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his college days, published by the New York Times over the weekend. The paper’s report was an excerpt of a new anti-Kavanaugh book authored by Times reporters that largely used anonymous sources to smear the conservative, Catholic Supreme Court Justice. Nearing the anniversary of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing that was mired by uncorroborated accusations of attempted rape and sexual misconduct, the networks spent the morning hailing the “growing calls” by 2020 Democrats for impeachment.
The View co-host Joy Behar went on a rant on Friday’s show, urging the show’s liberal viewers to unite behind whomever the Democrat nominee will be. Behar painted a bleak dystopian picture of what America is like now under President Trump, warning liberals that to save the planet and their children, they must vote Democrat, no matter what, in 2020.
According to MSNBC, Hillary Clinton didn’t make a mistake in calling Trump supporters, “deplorables” in 2016, she was just ahead of her time. In the wee hours of the morning following ABC’s Democrat debate, MSNBC’s Joy Reid and former Clinton adviser Philippe Reines spent time ranting about how awful President Trump and his supporters were, instead of talking about the Democrat candidates, (have they not learned anything from 2016?)
Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez was the guest on Thursday’s The View, where she promoted her new film, Hustlers, about a group of strippers who steal money from their Wall Street clients. However, the hosts were more interested in hearing about how much the singer loved the liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
