The women at the View are constantly bashing Donald Trump for what he says but seem to have no filter on what comes out of their own mouths. On Tuesday’s show, the panel complained about House Republicans looking to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics and House Speaker Paul Ryan seemingly going along with it. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg then made a suggestive comment about Ryan and his relationship to the GOP.
From defending flag burning to justifying anti-Trump violence, the largely liberal panel at ABC’s The View frequently proved this year that the only “views” that were acceptable came from the radical left. We’ve broken down the worst of the worst liberal outbursts from the 2016 season in the cringeworthy video below.
On Good Morning America December 2, anchor George Stephanopoulos argued with Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway over the media’s reaction to the election. When Conway brought up the fact that media was suddenly against the electoral college after their candidate lost, Stephanopoulos shot back, “No one is questioning the victory.” But is that really true? Since November 8, many journalists have openly challenged the election results and pinned their blame on the electoral college.
Wednesday on The View, the ladies turned their self-admitted “rage” over the election results into a tentative plan of how to stop Trump from entering office. Host Joy Behar argued that the Constitution left a “chance” for Trump to get forced out, with help from the electoral college.
The women at The View had a collective meltdown on Monday’s show after hearing ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson was Donald Trump’s rumored choice for Secretary of State. Discussing Tillerson’s ties with Russia and the news from the CIA that Russians may have been trying to influence the election, the panel wondered aloud if Trump had anything to do with the hacking. An exasperated Behar blamed Trump for “encouraging” the hacking and demanded he “step down” before the inauguration.
With each conservative cabinet pick, the media freaks out and does their best to characterize each person as a radical extremist. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt was next in line for the media to attack, as the liberal women at The View were quick to bash Trump's “horrible pick” for the Environmental Protection Agency as someone who was going to leave the United States in an apocalyptic wasteland filled with polluted air and dirty water.
On Wednesday’s The View, the notoriously biased panel touted their trustworthy reputations, in a completely unironic segment. While discussing ‘fake news,’ the panel contrasted right-leaning media website Breitbart with the “news” they give on The View. The most radically left hosts, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg, gushed over their own credibility, touting that any facts they give are “fact-checked” by ABC News.
Wednesday on The View, the panel made some wild predictions about what would happen during Donald Trump’s presidency. But not before making some clearly factually inaccurate statements. The panel blamed Trump for supposedly taking away people’s health insurance already before warning that Mike Pence was going to take away women’s rights and LGBT rights.
To start off ABC’s The View show December 2, the ladies actually discussed whether or not Trump’s election win was causing a phenomenon of wives spurning their husbands in the bedroom. Calling it the ‘Trump Bedroom Backlash’ Behar asked, “Is Trump causing ‘electile dysfunction?’” before the panel erupted in giggles but also agreement.
Friday’s “Hot Topics” on the View was so incredibly biased it was hard to know where to begin. After playing a leaked audioclip of Trump aide Kellyanne Conway arguing with Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri about the election results, Behar asked the panel if Palmieri was right in calling out Conway for winning on a platform of white supremacists. The liberal panelists wholeheartedly agreed with Palmieri, with Sara Haines making the most ludicrous comment.
There were plenty of surprises this election season. While documentarian Michael Moore and pundit Ann Coulter stole the show with their solid predictions that Trump would win, many journalists and celebrities were certain it would never come to pass. Below you will find a list of some of the most confident—and wrong—election predictions.
Friday morning’s The View started off with the mostly liberal panel having a meltdown over the announcement of Trump choosing retired General Michael Flynn and Alabama’s Senator Jeff Sessions for White House positions. Whoopi Goldberg complained that Sessions and the right wanted to bring back slavery and to deport Muslim Americans. Sunny Hostin then claimed that violence was only coming from the right, while Whoopi and Behar conceded there was violence from the left but it was deserved and provoked. “People better not sit back and just take it,” Behar lamented. “They [Republicans] started it.”
