Just like in the mainstream media, any common sense statement uttered by a conservative on The View is treated with absolute shock and horror. During a particularly stupid conversation Tuesday about a poll which found 58% of Republicans think colleges have a negative impact on the country, libertarian host Jedediah Bila suggested that liberal bias in academia was probably the reason for this poll. But even the mere mention of something awry in that untouchable institution provoked outrage at the table.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts fretted that Trump was “leading the charge” on assaults on journalists. After retweeting a gif last week that showed Trump wrestling with a CNN logo, the media threw a temper tantrum, obsessing that the gif was a sign of danger to their very lives. Co-hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin continued that worrying, hyping that even more of these silly tweets were “assaults” on the media that could lead to real life violence.
Just days after the Supreme Court passed through a watered-down version of President Trump’s temporary “travel ban,” CNN put out a Facebook Live video with Elmo from Sesame Street talking about the plight of Syrian refugees. In the video, CNN journalists are shown sympathetically asking Elmo about his experience visiting a refugee camp in an obvious attempt to spin an anti-Trump message to kids. On Thursday’s The View, the liberal hosts defended CNN and Sesame Street, insisting the video had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with “humanity.”
As has become routine on The View, the liberal hosts ganged up on libertarian host Jedediah Bila Wednesday after she pointed out the mainstream media’s liberal bias. After Playboy's White House Correspondent threw a temper tantrum in yesterday’s press briefing, the panel criticized the White House’s treatment of the media. Host Sunny Hostin gushed that the reporter was only there to be a “watchdog” for the White House and to protect us against a “dictatorship.”
The View proved yet again Monday that the only “views” tolerated on their show are the ones that attack Republicans. After the panel gushed over a New York Times article listing all of Trump’s lies since taking office, libertarian host Jedediah Bila pointed out that you could make a similar list with President Obama or either of the Clintons. This simple statement threw the rest of the panel into a frenzy of outrage for daring to suggest that Democrats also lie.
It’s often disheartening to hear some of the despicable things the audience of ABC’s The View will applaud for. Whoopi Goldberg and her compatriots talked about Cuban relations on Monday and parroted loony moral equivocations between human rights in America and Cuba made by Cuban officials. The audience, eager to shower their undying loyalty, erupted in applause as Whoopi repeated the communist regime's talking points.
The View is a show that has, for much of its history, profited off of manufactured outrage. Friday’s broadcast took a similar turn, when they discussed the multifarious “sexism” embedded in liberal favorite Senator Kamala Harris getting “interrupted” by her fellow Senators. Other supposed examples: Reminding her not to interrupt Attorney General Jeff Sessions who was attempting to answer her question, and being called “hysterical” by a Trump surrogate.
The View, ABC’s morning talk program that elevated Raven-Symone to political punditry, engaged in one of its more oafish rants Thursday on one of the many topics about which it knows very little: the Constitution. In the wake of an agitated socialist attempting to engage in the mass murder of his political opponents, the panelists at The View changed the subject to berating the Second Amendment and the limits it places on gun control.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the panel had a heated discussion about the Trump Administration’s planned move to repeal the ObamaCare universal mandate that employers provide birth control to their employees under their company’s health insurance plans. This decision was praised by religious and conservative groups, but the women at The View were not having it, comparing the move to Sharia law.
Chelsea Clinton is making her rounds in the media this week to promote her new children’s feminist book, (that includes a special cameo of her mother!), aptly titled "She Persisted." After one fawning interview on NBC’s Today show Tuesday, Clinton was ready for another cushy interview on Wednesday’s The View.
Overly sensitive students at college campuses everywhere have learned that if you protest a conservative speaker on your campus, you will be lauded by the media as “brave” and “patriotic.” That’s exactly what happened on Tuesday’s The View, when the panel finally got around to discussing Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony last weekend, where a large group of students walked out during Vice President Mike Pence’s commencement speech to his alma mater.
Last Friday, former First Lady Michelle Obama blasted Trump and Republicans for trying to roll back her healthy school lunch program, accusing them of not caring about kids. “What is wrong with you?” Obama provocatively asked her left-leaning audience. Well Joy Behar on Monday’s The View had the same question to ask Republicans, adding in a little Ronald Reagan bashing and Michael Moore praising to make her rants extra nauseating and eye roll-worthy.
