Democrat 2020 candidate and former Obama cabinet member Julián Castro came on ABC’s The View Thursday following last night’s Democratic debate, to receive softballs and high praise from the liberal hosts. While Meghan McCain pressed him on his support for open borders, co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar lavished praise on his performance and didn’t critique any of his far-left policies.
Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are no strangers to hyperbole and dramatics on The View. After Behar said Trump was on his way to exterminating illegal immigrants last week, Whoopi claimed that Trump was on his way to criminalizing and exterminating gay people on Wednesday’s show.
When you are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome it’s hard to remember some basic facts. Co-host of The View, Joy Behar, forgot that Norway is on another continent on Tuesday’s show, when she asked if kids from “Norway” would be treated the same at border facilities.
The hosts of The View saved time to bash White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Monday’s show, after she announced last week that she would be leaving her post at the end of the month. Whoopi and Joy Behar reveled in the news, mocking her while Sunny Hostin took a more dramatic tone, blasting Sanders as a liar who had forever tainted the position.
Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.
The hosts at The View blasted President Trump Wednesday, for calling Democrat candidate Joe Biden “slow” and claiming he didn’t have the fortitude to make it on the campaign trail. That led to an entire segment of the hosts ragging on Trump for spreading "health conspiracy theories," which is too rich, coming from the same people who spread their own health conspiracy theories about Trump all the time.
The hosts were divided on The View Tuesday over Democrats dragging out John Dean to testify over the Mueller report Monday, where he compared President Trump to Richard Nixon. The stunt was praised by View hosts Sunny Hostin and fill-in host Deborah Roberts as historically necessary, but Meghan McCain called out the disgraced, former White House counsel for his partisanship and history of hackery.
The hosts of ABC’s The View struggled on Monday’s show, between praising Joe Biden for flip-flopping on the Hyde Amendment last week, to expressing frustration that he wasn’t with the radical left to begin with. After pressure from the left, the former Vice President and current 2020 candidate came out this past week to say he now was against the amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, after being in favor of it for the past forty years. Meghan McCain was the only critic of Biden’s flip- flopping.
Friday on The View, the liberal hosts took offense at the Wall Street Journal suggesting Joe Biden’s popularity in the 2020 race meant that Americans didn’t want a “far-left” Democrat. Joy Behar praised the virtues of liberalism while simultaneously denying Democrat policies were anything but “common sense.” Whoopi Goldberg even went out of her way to defend Democrats’ support for late-term abortion.
Sometimes you really have to wonder if the hosts of The View actually listen to anything coming out of their mouths. On Thursday’s show alone, the hosts politicized D-Day numerous times, connecting it to gay pride month in one segment, and in another segment, tying it to the southern border crisis. In that latter segment, co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin raged at the “illegal” and “despicable” funding cuts to recreational programs for illegal alien minors, while Whoopi Goldberg claimed our soldiers died fighting in Normandy so we could take care of illegal alien kids.
Abortion was the topic at The View’s hot topics table Tuesday, and this time it was Whoopi Goldberg’s turn to get worked up over recent state bans. Just two weeks ago, Joy Behar whined that Republican men should get forcibly sterilized for passing these bans. On today’s show Whoopi raged at former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley for daring to speak out against abortion at a pro-life gala, calling it "anti-human."
The View hosts spent a segment on Monday’s show celebrating June as gay pride month. As usual, the hosts found a way to bash President Trump and religious conservatives. Co-host Sunny Hostin bashed Catholics who were against gay pride month, alleging children were safer at pride parents than in church and Jesus would've attended a pride parade.
