The View’s Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday furiously denounced fellow co-host Joy Behar for suggesting that the family of Antonin Scalia might know of a conspiracy theory to kill the justice. Goldberg went ballistic at her fellow panelists on the show for speculating on such possibilities, condemning, “We don't actually know what happened! This just happened over the weekend. Let's hold off before we decide that somebody murdered him!”
Joy Behar, who has previously said she is “aroused” by the “hot” Bernie Sanders, on Friday advised the self-admitted socialist to stop calling himself a socialist. During a discussion of the Democratic primary on The View, Behar complained, “He calls himself a socialist. He’s just a liberal. He’s a liberal. He's as liberal as Obama.” (Whether that said more about Sanders or Obama, Behar didn’t explain.)
On ABC's The View on Friday, the ladies discussed the Republican debate. They actually discussed both debates, going after Carly Fiorina's Hillary wisecrack in the undercard. She said: "Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”
Co host Joy Behar made a meowing sound and said, “I wonder who she’s talking about? Who do you think she’s talking about?”
The View’s Joy Behar on Tuesday insisted that, regardless of whether Bill Clinton raped a woman or Ted Kennedy drowned someone, she would vote for these liberal politicians. Behar and her fellow co-hosts were discussing how Clinton’s past would impact his wife in 2016. She justified, “Republicans have voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Now, that to me, is more important than anything that Bill Clinton did or didn't do because it's what she's going to vote for.”
Today’s installment of the Media Research Center’s “Best Notable Quotables of 2015,” as selected by our 39 expert judges, the “The Barbra Streisand Political IQ Award for Celebrity Vapidity.” Winning this award, former Star Trek actor George Takei, who in a local news interview on June 30 spluttered out a racist condemnation of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas after being asked about Thomas’s dissent in the gay marriage ruling:
The View on Wednesday took issue at a recent video from Ted Cruz, in which he talks about encouraging staff using Star Wars voices. After the clip played, The View began a barrage of comedic jabs at Cruz’s expense. Michelle Collins began with “Did you see what a co-worker said?” Joy Behar interrupted Collins’ thought, saying “The bird flu is more popular than Ted Cruz.” Collins laughed at the bird flu joke, and continue her previous setup. “One co-worker said why do people take such an instant dislike of Ted Cruz? It just saves time.”
On Wednesday, the co-hosts of The View treated director Quentin Tarantino to a softball interview following his anti-cop remarks last month. The hosts happily provided him a platform to play the victim against those who condemned him calling cops “murderers” and to double-down on his attack on the policy.
Monday’s The View featured a segment with Richard Clarke, an ABC News consultant and former Clinton and Bush national security staffer. Clarke iterated that “We are a country of refugees. The people we're allowing in are the victims of terrorism. We shouldn't punish victims of terrorism.” When Paula Faris brought up that Marco Rubio said “you can't do a background check on a lot of these refugees. You just can't call someone up in Syria because it's hard to track them down,” Clarke got personal against Rubio.
On Wednesday's The View, liberal co-host Joy Behar surprisingly hit Hillary Clinton for failing to condemn one of her supporters who said he wanted to “strangle” Carly Fiorina. Behar admitted that “if somebody had said that to Donald Trump and he had laughed, we would be ripping him a new one and she did not -- she should have stood up to him, I'm sorry, I have to say that.”
On Friday's The View, as CNS News's Mark Judge reported, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar went ballistic when GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina stated that Planned Parenthood is "harvesting baby parts through late term abortion." Part of Goldberg's response as she serially talked over Fiorina: "You know that’s not true. Carly, you know no one’s harvesting baby parts." Behar chimed in: "That offends my sensibility to hear you say something like that when you know it’s not true.”
Fiorina was and remains indisputably correct, while Goldberg and Behar are both embarrassingly wrong. Yet an ABC report filed at its web site Friday afternoon by Jordyn Phelps would only characterize Fiorina's assertion of an obvious, widely-known fact as a "claim." Beyond that, Phelps characterized the candidate's citation of Planned Parenthood's announced decision to cease taking compensation for harvested body as merely being (in Fiorina's view) "proof of her point."
Carly Fiorina on Friday debated the liberal co-hosts of The View, mocking them for attacks on her and also lobbying for honesty about the double standard conservative women face. At one point, the Republican lectured: “If all of you are honest, you will admit that this is the reality. Conservative women are held to a different standard than liberal women. That's just true.” When the liberal Joy Behar wondered, “by whom,” Fiorina retorted, “By all of you. By the liberal media.”
On Tuesday’s The View, liberal co-host Joy Behar eagerly cheered on Hillary Clinton’s decision to play the gender card against her Democratic challenger for president, Bernie Sanders. Behar was reacting to Clinton, who during a campaign event in Iowa said “I've been told to stop shouting about ending gun violence. Well, I haven't been shouting but sometimes when a woman speaks out some people think it's shouting.”
