Following a one-week hiatus, the liberal hosts of The View had a mini-meltdown over the results of the Mueller report, at Monday’s Hot Topics table. Co-host Joy Behar was adamant that the big mistake here was on Mueller’s part for not forcing President Trump to sit down for a one-on-one interview or testify before Congress. She angrily ranted that had he done so, Trump would have lied for sure and would’ve been impeached “automatically.”
It looks like the ladies of The View have fallen in love with openly gay South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has formed an exploratory committee to run for President as a Democrat in 2020. Co-host Joy Behar opened the segment by touting a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll highlighting that “a majority of Americans have...no problem with a gay candidate.” Behar then asked a follow-up question: “are they ready for a gay President?”
While lately co-host Meghan McCain agrees more than disagrees with her liberal peers at The View, Tuesday that changed when the Republican got into a shouting match with three of her co-hosts over a very familiar argument: the idea that the former administration was untainted by scandal.
The co-hosts of The View unanimously praised former DNC Chair Donna Brazile for joining Fox News Channel’s lineup as a regular contributor, on Tuesday’s show. They praised the decision as good for independents to get a liberal voice from the network, and Whoopi Goldberg even claimed that it was a sign Fox News would be returning to doing “news.”
The hosts of The View Friday were unanimously angry about ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s 47-month-long sentencing by a judge Thursday, calling it “immoral” “shameful” and wishing that he’d “rot in jail for the rest of his life.” Host Joy Behar even shared her own conspiracy theories that the judge was a Trump supporter and wondered if Mitch McConnell had something to do with it.
Disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe made the media rounds Tuesday promoting his new book, which is full of salacious claims and stopped by The View for a lengthy discussion about it. However, only co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman called into question McCabe’s stories, even though he was fired from the FBI for lying to federal investigators.
ABC News's political director Rick Klein appeared briefly on The View Thursday to talk about the controversies surrounding freshman Democrats and to tout the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While co-host Abby Huntsman expressed concern that Democrats were veering too far left, Klein and fellow co-host Joy Behar shut her down, claiming that most Americans supported Democrats’ radical and infeasible policy proposals.
ABC on Friday thrust a sexist, bizarre “art” project at Ivanka Trump and demanded to know “how does it make you feel?” Unsurprisingly, she didn’t like it. In an interview for Good Morning America, Abby Huntsman tried to thrust a picture of a 16-year-old model vacuuming up crumbs.
Just when you think The View can’t get any more unwatchable, they bring on CNN journalists as their guests. On Thursday's show, host Chris Cuomo came on to talk about pretty much everything in the news cycle except Covington. He even defended Buzzfeed for their inaccurate anti-Trump report released last week, while defending his own network as having no bias but slamming Fox News for its own.
View co-host Whoopi Goldberg shamelessly defended the media Tuesday, after they spent all day Friday hyping the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, and was later refuted by Robert Mueller that same day. Conservative co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman slammed the media’s initial response to the Buzzfeed report, arguing they were helping Trump get re-elected, a claim Whoopi took issue with.
Only on The View would you hear a host compare the radically leftist mayor of New York City to “a Republican.” That happened on Wednesday’s show, when the hosts gave Bill De Blasio a tougher shake than most news programs do, but still praised his socialist health care plan that guarantees free health care for illegal aliens. That’s when Joy Behar weirdly praised the mayor’s plan as sounding like a “small government” idea by “a Republican.”
ABC’s Senior White House correspondent Jonathan Karl appeared on The View Monday to briefly discuss the two reports out in the Washington Post and New York Times which the media is seizing on as their new “evidence” that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. However the reports fall short of that and even Jon Karl had to admit that there was “zero evidence” of that to the hosts, much to their chagrin.
