The hosts of The View spent time Tuesday complaining that the Republicans and Trump lawyers were conducting an unjust and even racist, trial in the Senate. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin fretted that justice wouldn’t be served because Republicans wouldn't allow "smoking gun" witness John Bolton, to testify and seal the case against Trump.
Monday on The View, the hosts defended NPR as an unbiased news outlet after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yelled at one of their reporters and called her dishonest after a contentious interview. Co-host Meghan McCain wondered if the spat was over the reporter’s liberal bias, the other hosts jumped in to defend NPR and its reporter as unbiased while claiming Pompeo was the one, “not telling the truth.”
The ratings are in and just like during the House hearings, Americans have shown they are not interested in hearing the Democrat arguments to impeach President Trump. Collectively, the big three networks, who changed their regular programming to the Senate trial this week, lost about 3 million viewers, and for that grave error, they earned the wrath of The View hosts on Friday’s show.
As if the media hadn’t embarrassed themselves enough already in their cheerleading for Adam Schiff and the House impeachment managers, the liberal co-hosts of The View were eager and willing to heap more praise on the Democrats.
In a head-scratching moment on Wednesday’s The View, far-left co-host Sunny Hostin claimed she was “shocked” when critics called her a lefty because she was actually “socially conservative.” Hostin made the comment as the hosts were discussing a poll which found a majority of black Democrat voters identified as moderate and conservative. Her liberal co-host Whoopi Goldberg also tried to jump on the bandwagon and claim she was also “conservative” on some issues.
For two days in a row, The View has given Democrats in Congress a platform to bash President Trump over Iran and impeachment. Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was the satellite guest and today it was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s turn to take softball questions from the liberal hosts.
Even as the danger appears to deflate with Iran, the media won’t stop suggesting we are entering WWIII. The View hosts started Wednesday’s show with that same Chicken Little routine, worrying about their own kids getting drafted. Co-host Abby Huntsman also fretted that by taking terrorist Quasem Soleimani’s life, the U.S. would be on the wrong side of history, while fellow co-host Sunny Hostin worried that President Trump was “provoking” Iran.
The bitter media began the new year being outraged over President Trump ordering a drone strike to kill a terrorist, and the bizarre complaining continued on Monday’s The View. The hosts invited ABC News’ political director Rick Klein on the show to parrot Democrat fear mongering about how killing Soleimani was going to start a war with Iran. Co-host Joy Behar refused to give Trump any credit and snarked this “so-called threat” was just a distraction from impeachment.
The hosts of ABC’s The View aren’t exactly known for their even-handed or rational political analysis. While each show is predictably filled with meltdowns over President Trump, sometimes a co-host will say something so bizarre it defies understanding. Here’s our top picks for wackiest analysis from the political talk show, this year:
For nearly this entire year, Sunny Hostin of The View has urged Democrats to obey their “Constitutional duty” to impeach President Trump. She was pushing this back in March, months before the Democrats’ supposed smoking gun, the Ukraine phone call, was even known.Yet the co-host and ABC legal analyst was eager to abandon the Constitution after the House voted to impeach President Trump yesterday.
The View hosts followed the media’s lead in attacking President Trump on Wednesday’s show, over his lengthy letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending his actions before the House votes on impeachment, later today. Even though The View hosts have a reputation for their own angry meltdowns and fact-free rants, they fretted the letter revealed the hysterical rantings of an unstable president, who should be removed from office.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain had a nasty fight on Monday’s show when the Republican co-host accused her liberal co-hosts of not wanting to hear a conservative perspective, “ever.” The argument started as the hosts were hyperventilating that Republicans were not “fulfilling their oath” to impeach President Trump and McCain tried to rein in her co-hosts’ emotional reactions back to reality.
