On her last week on the show, The View co-host Abby Huntsman held Democrat Adam Schiff’s feet to the fire over which impeachment witnesses were allowed to testify, asking him repeatedly to explain why Joe Biden and his son couldn’t be subpoenaed. Her co-host Meghan McCain also pressed the Democrat to admit that this impeachment process was going to damage his party with the American public.
Even as the danger appears to deflate with Iran, the media won’t stop suggesting we are entering WWIII. The View hosts started Wednesday’s show with that same Chicken Little routine, worrying about their own kids getting drafted. Co-host Abby Huntsman also fretted that by taking terrorist Quasem Soleimani’s life, the U.S. would be on the wrong side of history, while fellow co-host Sunny Hostin worried that President Trump was “provoking” Iran.
The hosts of ABC’s The View aren’t exactly known for their even-handed or rational political analysis. While each show is predictably filled with meltdowns over President Trump, sometimes a co-host will say something so bizarre it defies understanding. Here’s our top picks for wackiest analysis from the political talk show, this year:
The View hosts followed the media’s lead in attacking President Trump on Wednesday’s show, over his lengthy letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending his actions before the House votes on impeachment, later today. Even though The View hosts have a reputation for their own angry meltdowns and fact-free rants, they fretted the letter revealed the hysterical rantings of an unstable president, who should be removed from office.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain had a nasty fight on Monday’s show when the Republican co-host accused her liberal co-hosts of not wanting to hear a conservative perspective, “ever.” The argument started as the hosts were hyperventilating that Republicans were not “fulfilling their oath” to impeach President Trump and McCain tried to rein in her co-hosts’ emotional reactions back to reality.
The hosts of The View talked briefly Tuesday about Clint Eastwood’s latest biographical film on fake news victim Richard Jewell, who was falsely branded by the media as a terrorist in 1996. Instead of discussing the media’s culpability in ruining this man’s life, however, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Eastwood instead for his film’s depiction of a now-deceased Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter.
The hosts of The View were all over the map on Monday’s show while discussing the latest strong jobs report that was released Friday. Unable to face facts, the hosts tried to argue the economy was actually a negative for Trump. The liberal hosts suddenly pretended to care about the rising deficit, while at the same time, griping that more money wasn't being put into food stamps. Co-host Joy Behar even suggested that half the country supported impeaching Trump because the economy wasn't benefiting them.
Predictably, the liberal View hosts weren’t embarrassed by Democrat witness Pamela Karlan’s smug, rage-filled performance during Wednesday’s impeachment inquiry hearing. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and guest host Bari Weiss even defended the Stanford professor attacking the President's teenage son, before ripping into Republicans as hypocrites who don't care about the migrant children at the border.
Monday on The View, each liberal host blew a gasket over President Trump cracking down on bloated government assistant programs, calling it “cruel.” The hosts were referring to a Trump administration proposal that would place reduce SNAP’s budget by an estimated 4.2 billion dollars and place tighter work requirements upon those who receive food stamps. One host even wondered what was “wrong” with allowing the government to "feed and house" millions of people.
The View hosts couldn’t come to agreement on Monday’s show on the topic of Facebook and free speech. Since October, the media has been attacking the social media platform for not following Twitter’s example in banning political ads, (yet). Co-host Joy Behar complained the website was promoting “dangerous propaganda” just like how the media covered candidate Trump during the 2016 election.
The View hosts were riled up Friday, after their show had been preempted most of the week by the televised impeachment hearings. Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar were devastated by the news that more independents were against impeachment, and the President’s approval ratings had shot up since the hearings began. The two lectured Americans for not believing the Democrats, and media’s impeachment arguments.
Well this was definitely a show for the record books. Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle sat down at the “hot topics” table on The View Thursday for an explosive discussion. Despite the hosts’ hostile and abusive behavior towards their guests, Trump and Guilfoyle were still able to land some good points about the media’s bias towards President Trump. Trump even called out the View’s network, ABC, for its part in covering up Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Bill Clinton, during the 2016 election.
