If hell had a sound, it would be like listening to the women on the View — and Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — talking about sex.
On Friday, August 3, on the View, host Joy Behar decided to turn the show into a panel about sexual fantasies. After asking the audience, “Why do people fantasize about sex?” she turned to the guest for the day, Avenatti, and asked him, “So Michael, do you have these fantasies or not?”
News shows have gone from grilling Avenatti about Daniels and the #resistance to now asking him about sexual fantasies. Nothing says professionalism like this topic.
Avenatti laughed and answered, “Well, well, to be clear, unlike Ted Cruz or Tucker Carlson I actually believe in sex.” Behar mumbled agreement, “They … they don’t, yeah.”
Not sure why he decided to slam conservative figures for their decisions to keep their lives private. Co-host Meghan McCain had the same reaction.
She fired back, “How does Tucker Carlson not believe in sex? He has five kids, he definitely believes in sex. Tucker Carlson has a bunch of children. I don’t know what that means…”
Neither do we, Meghan.
Avenatti continued the cringe fest, announcing, “All of my sexual fantasies involve handcuffs.” There’s nothing like seeing Never Trumper Ana Navarro, who claims to be a serious political commentator for CNN, grill Michael Avenatti about his handcuff obsession: “Wait, wait wait. Are you the one putting on the handcuffs, or are you handcuffed?”
Behar awkwardly announced: “I think I would like to put the handcuffs on Donald Trump!” Noticing that McCain was clearly made uncomfortable by the discussion, Behar yelled at her, “Come on Meghan! Laugh it up! It’s funny!”
McCain gave an answer that summed up how at least some of the viewers felt: “A special version of my hell is being on this panel talking about sex … as we know, for a full season, not talking about my sex life on TV, you told me I wouldn’t make it on the show. Not talking about sex, somehow I made it work.”
Behar admitted to bullying McCain into talking about sex, saying, “I did tell her that, I said you have to talk about sex on the View.”
