After spending the past few days obsessing over a Florida Democratic Congresswoman’s claims that President Trump “disrespected” a fallen soldier in a phone call to his widow,The View hosts were still not done blaming Trump for the allegations on Thursday’s show. But in today’s episode, the hosts added fuel to the fire, falsely accusing Trump of doing nothing for reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Friday on ABC’s The View, the show celebrated host Joy Behar’s birthday, by starting off with a special guest appearance by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, voiced by comedian Robert Smigel. The puppet dog has been a mainstay on Conan O’Brien’s late-night comedy shows for the past twenty years and has a penchant for brutally mocking his interviewers. So naturally the hosts’ liberal bias didn’t escape the puppet’s blunt jokes.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, Scandal actress Kerry Washington appeared briefly to discuss the popular show’s final season. The show’s writers, along with Washington herself, have been outspoken critics of President Trump as well as advocates for abortion and Hillary Clinton. So the hosts were overjoyed with the opportunity to get their like-minded liberal guest to spout off on Trump and Republicans.
Sounding like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, The View’s Sunny Hostin argued Wednesday that she “believed in the 2nd Amendment” but wanted to see various types of guns “banned.” The show’s host echoed the other liberal hosts at the table in wondering “why” any American would need certain types of guns, modifiers and silencers. Hostin tried to have her cake and eat it too by saying she “didn’t want to take anyone’s guns away” but the government should “ban” several types of guns.
After Monday’s show was interrupted with live news coverage, ABC’s The View got its first chance to respond to Sunday night’s mass shooting on Tuesday’s program. As to be expected, the dialogue was high on emotions and low on facts, with the hosts reciting Democrat talking points, praising Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night rant, and urging viewers to vote Republicans out of office for not doing enough to stand up against “the gun lobby.”
Following the networks’ lead this morning, ABC’s The View expressed disgust at Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who won out the primary vote against Trump-backed Republican incumbent Luther Strange yesterday. Moore’s staunch conservative and Christian views triggered the show's hosts to rant and rave about how “scary” his viewpoints were, as host Sara Haines even worried that Moore would try to “legislate” Christianity.
As the left likes to say, never let a serious crisis go to waste! While discussing the absolute devastation in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, some hosts at ABC’s The View wondered if the lack of media attention was a result of racist mainland Americans. Instead of putting the blame on the media for being late to alerting Americans to the serious crisis, The View’s Sunny Hostin instead suggested the skin color of Puerto Ricans was why Americans didn’t “care” about what they were going through.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts continued their network’s obsessive coverage and hysterical handling of the NFL protests this weekend, that were in response to President Trump’s condemnation of the league allowing them to happen in the first place. The ladies at The View took a hard left position on the protests, as to be expected, praising Colin Kaepernick as “very American,” and bashing Trump as “scary” “crazy” and the “bum-in-chief.”
Anthony Scaramucci was the welcomed guest on Friday’s The View, where the short-lived former White House Communications Director happily dished insider details on all the staffers he didn’t like while working in the White House, to the liberal hosts’ delight. Virulently anti-Trump host Joy Behar led the discussion, and at every opportunity she tried to get Scaramucci to bash President Trump along with current and former White House staff.
Just when you thought The View had their most annoying guest of the season on last week with Hillary Clinton, on September 21’s show, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made an appearance. As to be expected, the panel treated Joe and Mika as if they were old friends, and gushed together over their mutual hatred of President Trump.
In the realm of bizarre, wacky and just plain stupid things said on ABC’s The View, this has to up there as one of the strangest statements made on this show recently. While discussing President Trump’s address to the United Nations September 19, the hosts took pause to wonder if Trump had a “strategy” in calling Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” because it was a “phallic” symbol.
Charlottesville was back on the hot topics table at ABC’s The View, September 15, one month to the day after violence broke out on the campus of the University of Virginia. But instead of thought-provoking conversation on the serious issue, as usual, conspiracy theories about the right was the prevailing opinion expressed at the table by the liberal hosts. Whoopi Goldberg had the most mind-numbing take, actually wondering out loud if the right had “made up” Antifa, so they could have something to “bitch about.”
