Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.
The hosts at The View blasted President Trump Wednesday, for calling Democrat candidate Joe Biden “slow” and claiming he didn’t have the fortitude to make it on the campaign trail. That led to an entire segment of the hosts ragging on Trump for spreading "health conspiracy theories," which is too rich, coming from the same people who spread their own health conspiracy theories about Trump all the time.
Friday on The View, the liberal hosts took offense at the Wall Street Journal suggesting Joe Biden’s popularity in the 2020 race meant that Americans didn’t want a “far-left” Democrat. Joy Behar praised the virtues of liberalism while simultaneously denying Democrat policies were anything but “common sense.” Whoopi Goldberg even went out of her way to defend Democrats’ support for late-term abortion.
Sometimes you really have to wonder if the hosts of The View actually listen to anything coming out of their mouths. On Thursday’s show alone, the hosts politicized D-Day numerous times, connecting it to gay pride month in one segment, and in another segment, tying it to the southern border crisis. In that latter segment, co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin raged at the “illegal” and “despicable” funding cuts to recreational programs for illegal alien minors, while Whoopi Goldberg claimed our soldiers died fighting in Normandy so we could take care of illegal alien kids.
All morning Wednesday, ABC was promoting the dystopian feminist show on Hulu, The Handmaid’s Tale, with its star, actress Elizabeth Moss, appearing both on Good Morning America and The View to promote its third season. Both ABC shows immediately tried to tie recent statewide abortion bans to the patriarchal dystopia warned about in the fictional show.
Not surprisingly, David Letterman’s appearance on The View Friday quickly devolved into Trump bashing. Letterman reminisced about Trump’s many appearances on his show as a private citizen and talked about how “he seemed like a guy” back then, as opposed to now, where he has become a “goon.”
The hosts of The View spent last Friday defending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and made a repeat performance on this Friday’s show, after Democrats and the media pressured her to start impeachment proceedings. The hosts took turns between fawning over Pelosi and then ranting that the “criminal in the White House” needed to be impeached.
2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received an enthusiastic welcome from the hosts of ABC’s The View Thursday, and packed the audience with her liberal fans. The lengthy segment felt more like a political rally, as the audience loudly cheered every answer she gave to the hosts about her support for far-left issues like abortion and student loan-debt “forgiveness.”
On Tuesday’s show, the hosts of ABC’s The View conflated two unflattering videos starring Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that circulated social media late last week. While only one video was altered, the co-hosts claimed both were “fake,” angrily came to Pelosi’s defense, and demanded that both “doctored” videos needed to be taken down.
The co-hosts of The View went overboard as usual in decrying a Trump administration decision to postpone the release of the new twenty-dollar bills depicting abolitionist hero, Harriet Tubman. After Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin explained the bills wouldn’t come out till 2028 to deal with counterfeiting issues, the hosts slammed it as an obvious racist “dog whistle” to Trump supporters.
With Michael Avenatti embroiled in yet another legal scandal, it’s worth remembering the incredible amount of friendly coverage that he received from liberal television outlets last year. In addition to landing an incredible 254 live television appearances in a single year, the notorious lawyer who previously represented porn star Stormy Daniels received considerable praise from cable and network hosts alike throughout 2018.
The New York Times Magazine has posted its Sunday cover story on ABC's The View, touted as "The Most Important Political TV Show in America." Behar lamented that Hillary Clinton made a big mistake not coming on the show more than once in 2016 so she could show she was a "gregarious grandma." ABC wanted to help her win, and she didn't cooperate!
