Responding Monday morning to the sexual misconduct allegation against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh with predictable hypocrisy, the liberal ladies on ABC’s The View applauded Democrats for finally “play[ing] hardball,” deemed Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s claims to be “very credible,” and defended Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA) for not going public sooner with the letter.
Friday at ABC’s The View, the hosts spent an entire segment slamming Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson for his interview with porn star Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti Thursday night. The hosts took objection with Carlson calling the outspoken Avenatti a “creepy porn lawyer” in the lower-third at the bottom of the screen and calling him that moniker to sign off the interview.
The View began Wednesday’s show by parroting the same overwrought analysis all over cable news this morning after President Trump came out touting the federal government’s response to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit last year. Co-host Sunny Hostin was the most vocal, admitting she had family there so she took the issue personally, blasting the administration for “allowing its own citizens to die.”
Omarosa Manigault Newman was invited on ABC’s The View Monday, to release what was supposedly a damaging tape she recorded of President Trump in the Oval Office in 2017 (and promote her new book, of course.) Even after dismissing the former Apprentice star and White House aide as an unreliable opportunist in the past, the View, and the rest of the media suddenly had a new respect for her after she turned on President Trump with all sorts of sensational claims about life in the administration.
The View host Joy Behar appeared on CNN’s Van Jones Show Saturday evening to hawk her anti-Trump book released nearly a year ago, The Great Gasbag, and give her advice to the Democrat party on how to deal with Trump and win elections.
Friday at the Hot Topics table, the hosts of the View discussed President Trump’s rally Thursday where he called out the writer of the anonymous New York Times op-ed, as “treasonous.” The liberal hosts were aghast at Trump’s response, saying he was the real villain of this story. The panel compared Trump to former President Nixon and Whoopi even claimed that it was now “dangerous” for anyone to criticize Trump.
Michael Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis appeared on Thursday’s edition of ABC’s The View where he fielded questions about his time as Harvey Weinstein’s legal counsel and his false claims to CNN. In the midst of being peppered with questions about what his client actually knew about Trump’s understanding of the Trump Tower meeting, co-host Joy Behar demanded to know what was being done to “fix” the media’s credibility after what he did.
Thursday the hosts of ABC’s The View opened the show by gushing about the anonymous op-ed printed in The New York Times September 5, which was supposedly written by a senior member of the administration that’s part of the “resistance” against Trump. Most of the panel only had positive things to say about the article, with co-host Sunny Hostin even characterizing the anonymous writer as a hero who was “saving” America from Trump.
On Tuesday's CBS This Morning, as the regular team of hosts returned from the Labor Day holiday, the group caught up with NBC's Today show in fretting over a pastor at Aretha Franklin's funeral who delivered a conservative message, but they still did not mention the controversy around Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan being allowed to share a stage with former President Bill Clinton and other prominent Democrats. In fact, former Attorney General and possible presidential candidate Eric Holder even posed for a photograph with the ardently anti-Semitic religious figure.
The View returned Tuesday for its 22nd season on ABC, with new host Abby Huntsman, former host of Fox and Friends Weekend and daughter of Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman. The panel spent a good portion of the show discussing Senator John McCain’s funeral as co-host Meghan McCain was absent from the table. After praising their co-host for making a veiled swipe at Trump during her eulogy for her father, the panel moved on to slam First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner for daring to attend the funeral.
If hell had a sound, it would be like listening to the women on the View — and Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — talking about sex.
Could The View have found its first male co-host in Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti? Though the female-led show would most likely not buck tradition by doing so, the liberal women certainly seemed to enjoy having the attack dog for #theResistance fill-in as co-host on their show, Friday.
