2020 Democrat candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders was guest on ABC’s The View Wednesday, where he was praised for his radical socialist politics being more popular than they were just four years ago. After co-host Abby Huntsman asked him if the media treated Biden fairly next to Trump, co-host Meghan McCain pressed him on what Republicans in Congress he would actually work with, as POTUS.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin practically put their hands over their ears after Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain referenced scandals that happened under Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, during a conversation on Bill Barr’s testimony yesterday. Whoopi was so desperate to avoid comparisons to the previous administration that she even fabricated something that never happened just to defend the Obama administration.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s cheerleading squad, also known as the ladies of The View, praised the South Bend Mayor for admitting he has white privilege during an appearance on The Daily Show. Behar also contended that even poor “white guys” still have white privilege while the rest of the panel gushed over “Mayor Pete,” whom they described as an “antithesis” to President Trump.
The hosts of ABC’s The View predictably went nuts Wednesday following Bill Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While tearing into Barr for allegedly “lying,” the hosts had sudden concern for ethics at the DOJ, and eagerly hoped the Attorney General would go to prison for “obstructing justice” and trying to conduct a “coup.”
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.
