Only on The View would you hear a host compare the radically leftist mayor of New York City to “a Republican.” That happened on Wednesday’s show, when the hosts gave Bill De Blasio a tougher shake than most news programs do, but still praised his socialist health care plan that guarantees free health care for illegal aliens. That’s when Joy Behar weirdly praised the mayor’s plan as sounding like a “small government” idea by “a Republican.”
ABC’s Senior White House correspondent Jonathan Karl appeared on The View Monday to briefly discuss the two reports out in the Washington Post and New York Times which the media is seizing on as their new “evidence” that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. However the reports fall short of that and even Jon Karl had to admit that there was “zero evidence” of that to the hosts, much to their chagrin.
Left-wing actor and activist Bradley Whitford, whose most famous for his role on The West Wing, appeared on ABC’s The View Friday to promote his newest project but the hosts mainly wanted him to rant about the "real" national emergency being gun violence, instead of illegal immigration.
On Wednesday’s show, the hosts of The View predictably were angry at President Trump’s address Tuesday night about the border, and opened the show by ranting about it. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin also combatted Meghan McCain over the policy separating illegal alien children at the border, calling that the real humanitarian crisis.
Democrat Senator Kamala Harris made the rounds on ABC Tuesday promoting her new memoir and aiding the media in bashing President Trump for addressing the nation tonight about the need for a southern border wall. Though she did not make a formal announcement if she was going to run for president in 2020, the liberal hosts at The View treated her as if she were already a candidate, comparing her to Hillary Clinton and pleading with her to stop President Trump.
Monday, the hosts of the View finally got around to discussing Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s cringeworthy video from last week, where she awkwardly opened a beer while announcing her 2020 bid for president. While many on the right mocked the apparent shameless pandering, View co-host Sunny Hostin actually defended it as “authentic” on Monday’s show.
During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel reacted to a clip of Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, where the eponymous host pointed to studies showing that “when men make less money than women, women generally don’t want to marry them.” As a whole, the panel seemed dismissive of his argument, saying his arguments came from “loony town” and seamed “real nutty.”
The past two years we’ve broken down the worst moments of each year on ABC’s The View. Even with the addition of Meghan McCain late last year, 2018 has proved yet again that the hosts have no tolerance for conservative viewpoints. Whether it was sneering at religion or Trump voters, defending their own double standards or making nutty apocalyptic predictions, the liberal hosts continued to remind us why there is only one acceptable leftist “view” on the ABC show. Read below to see some of the worst incidents from 2018 and watch the video below.
In 2018 there was a torrent of ugliness directed at conservatives. Vice President Mike Pence was disgustingly derided as a “dangerous” Christian with a “mental illness” on ABC’s The View. When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was hounded by leftist activists at a Virginia restaurant, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin praised them as she condemned: “Sarah Huckabee has no right to live a life of no fuss, no muss, after lying to the press.”
The liberal ladies at The View predictably went nuts on Thursday’s show over the new Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic out in theatres entitled “On the Basis of Sex.” Co-host Sunny Hostin, an ABC legal analyst was particularly enthusiastic, running out of adjectives to describe how much she loved Ginsburg and the film to stars, Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer.
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts discussed President Trump’s meeting with Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday afternoon about funding for the border wall and a potential government shutdown. Neither side would budge as expected, but the liberal hosts of The View laid all the blame on Trump, and even argued that Pelosi was “nice” to him.
Tuesday on The View, co-hosts Meghan McCain and Sunny Hostin got into a heated argument over Chief of Staff John Kelly eaving the Trump administration. While discussing the high turnover rate in the White House, Hostin claimed that the four-star general’s reputation was forever sullied by working for Trump. As the audience whooped at Hostin’s liberal talking points, McCain slammed her co-host and the audience for discounting Kelly’s service for the country.
