With almost 20 people currently running for the Democratic Party’s nomination in the 2020 presidential election, liberal media types have decided to educate us about these candidates, who range from New Jersey Senator Cory Booker to former tech executive Andrew Yang. The popularity of these individuals rises and falls, according to the host of the eponymous Tucker Carlson Tonight weeknight program on Fox News, who noted that many of the people who previously supported former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke now seem to favor South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Appearing on CNN’s New Day Thursday, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper weighed in on Attorney General William Barr’s testimony on Capitol Hill earlier in the week; particularly taking issue with his declaration that “spying did occur” on the Trump campaign at the hands of the intelligence community. Clapper also told co-host Alisyn Camerota that he could not “speak specifically” to what the FBI did, an apparent 180 from his denial that the FBI spied on the Trump campaign during an appearance on The View a year earlier.
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts argued about the combative exchange between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Rep. Maxine Waters that happened during a committee hearing Tuesday. When the Democrat committee chair wanted to keep questioning Mnuchin, despite a previously agreed upon ending time, the two had a fiery exchange that prompted View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar to gush about how amazing “Auntie Maxine” was for shutting down the Secretary.
For some reason ABC’s The View has been a favorite stop for Democrats to announce their presidential runs for 2020. That happened again on Thursday’s show, when Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) officially announced that he was the Democrat to beat President Trump in the next election.
Wednesday, ABC’s The View devoted an entire show to expectant host Abby Huntsman, celebrating her pregnancy with a baby shower and packed the audience with pregnant women. The irony of the predominantly liberal show celebrating babies is quite ironic considering how the hosts have celebrated a “woman’s right to choose” to kill her baby many times before on the show.
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.
After they spent last week defending former Vice President Joe Biden after the left came after him over Anita Hill, the hosts of The View opened the show Monday defending the potential 2020 Democrat contender yet again. Over the weekend, fellow Democrat Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately during a campaign event in 2014, an admission that caused the media to blow up all Monday, wavering on whether their #MeToo standards were still fair, when it affected people they liked.
Friday the hosts of The View reserved their rage for Education Secretary Betsy Devos, after the administration backpedaled on cutting federal funds for the Special Olympics. Liberal host Ana Navarro tore into DeVos for being wealthy, calling her “Cruella DeVos” while Joy Behar not-so-subtly called her a “bitch.”
As Joe Biden is nearing closer to announcing his 2020 run for president, the left’s demanding he apologize for how he “mishandled” Clarence Thomas’s accuser Anita Hill during Thomas's confirmation hearing in 1991. The View hosts disagreed over whether an apology was needed, but everyone could agree that this was all Trump’s fault.
After melting down Monday, View co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin were still refusing to admit that Mueller found no collusion, on Tuesday’s show. A shell shocked Behar expressed confusion that the findings didn’t turn out how she had hoped, while Hostin moved the goalposts, arguing that Trump was an illegitimate president even if he wasn’t guilty of collusion.
After ex-Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested by the FBI for extortion and fraud, the hosts of the View reacted to it on Tuesday’s show. Co-host Joy Behar, who had previously lauded the celebrity lawyer for “saving the country,” admitted she was heartbroken over Avenatti’s fall from grace.
