After Jedediah Bila surprised viewers by announcing she was leaving The View crew on ABC after just a year, reports quickly surfaced that ABC was in negotiations with Meghan McCain shortly after she departed Fox News. The London Daily Mail reported Bila was “blindsided by the shakeup” when she was told by a “friend at CNN” over last weekend. ABC apparently said "Oops, you weren't supposed to find out this way."
On Monday’s show, The View’s only regular conservative host Jedediah Bila announced it was her last day on the show. Just two weeks into the new season, Bila emotionally told viewers that she was leaving the show, but didn’t give any reason as to the cause for her sudden departure.
Now that President Obama is out of office, it’s apparently time to rewrite history. Over at ABC’s The View, the panel can’t stop finding new ways to describe our former president in ways that are detached from reality. During a brief segment on Thursday’s show, the panel discussed whether or not President Trump was more bipartisan than President Obama, after the alleged deal he made with Democrats about DACA. The panel was skeptical but said, if true, that it was a good thing for Trump to concede to Democrats or, as they put it, “be bipartisan.”
September 13 on ABC’s The View, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made her first talk show appearance since the election ten months ago, to promote her recently released memoir, What Happened. She sat at the table for over 40 minutes, fielding mostly friendly questions from the hosts. Host Joy Behar even revealed when Clinton lost the election, she felt like a friend had died and “went into mourning.”
Monday on The View, the two most liberal hosts made a claim so absurd it begged the question: What world are they living in? The audacious claim came during a discussion on media bias and President Trump. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila pointed out conservatives’ complaints about left-wing media bias in general, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar brought it directly to Trump, arguing that the media couldn’t be biased, because they covered Trump positively.
The day after hosting conservative guests, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, the liberal ladies at The View had a bone to pick with their guests. One by one, each host went on a tirade against both guests, after Mike Huckabee told a conservative outlet some less than flattering comments about The View hosts’ tone.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) who has openly campaigned for impeaching Trump since he took office, was the guest on Friday’s The View. Like two peas in a pod, Joy Behar and Waters hit it off immediately, while hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila actually tried to press Waters on her statements about impeaching Trump, the White House leaks, and the Democratic party’s shortcomings.
After bashing Trump adviser Stephen Miller as a racist for defending immigration reform, then bashing the state of Missouri for their recently passed “racist” law that protects businesses from unfounded lawsuits, the View crew had still more ill-informed hot takes to give on Thursday’s show. Equally as loony liberal activist Michael Moore was today’s guest, and he fit right in with most of the panel’s hatred for the right and for Trump.
After arguing students should be denied college admission based off of their race, the women at The View went on to argue students should be denied their Second Amendment rights. The rants were in response to a 2016 law passed in Texas that allows licensed gun owning students to conceal carry on campus. The law went into effect on community college campuses this week in the state. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila delivered a reasoned and fact-based argument in favor of the law, the rest of the panel shut her down and spewed nonsense in order to further their gun control agenda.
This week news broke that Hillary Clinton’s much touted memoir, that’s due for release this Fall, finally had a title: What Happened. Mockery ensued from the right and left over the groan worthy title that showed Clinton still isn’t willing to take any responsibility for losing the election. That notion was met with vehement agreement and disagreement at the table on The View, as hosts Sunny Hostin and Jedediah Bila battled over why Clinton really lost.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the hosts had on former Ferguson police chief, Tom Jackson, to talk about his new book about his experience in Ferguson during the Michael Brown shooting. During the conversation, Jackson tried to dispel many of the media myths concerning the shooting of Brown, but instead he got an earful from hosts Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg about the credibility of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the panel talked with a self-identified “polyamorous” bisexual actor Nico Tortorella and a group of “sexually fluid” teens, to help educate them about the broad and confusing world of their community. While the panel called on the media to give more positive representations of “sexually fluid” people, the hosts themselves admitted they didn’t even understand what the terms meant. In an unintentionally comical segment, the panel grew visibly more confused and frustrated while scrambling to understand the rules and norms of their more “sexually progressive” young guests.
