The View co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Joy Behar clashed on Tuesday’s show over the left’s messaging on climate change. After Whoopi Goldberg praised 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s disturbing speech yesterday at the United Nations, an argument ensued between the liberal hosts and Huntsman. While the moderate host slammed the hysterical, fearmongering from Thunberg and the left on climate change, Behar raged that we needed the younger generation to lead the way because older “deniers” didn’t love their grandchildren, enough.
It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
Prolific horror fiction novelist Stephen King appeared on ABC’s The View, Wednesday to plug his newest book The Institute, about a group of teens with supernatural abilities who are kidnapped by a group of zealots, locked up and experimented on. While King claimed he left politics out of his stories, he connected the Trump administration “locking up kids in cages” as making his fictional novel, come to life.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts spun a comment President Trump made about criminals entering the U.S., as another example of how Trump hated black people. While answering a reporter’s question about hurricane refugees, he warned we had to be careful about letting in “very bad people” such as “drug dealers” and “gang members” into the country. View co-host Whoopi Goldberg complained that this was clearly a racist statement about everyone who lived in the Bahamas.
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris gleefully laughed on Friday when a voter mocked Donald Trump with what is considered a slur against handicapped people. Yet, NBC has still not covered the incident. ABC and CBS have offered scant coverage and The View hosts defended the intentions of the Democratic senator. On Friday, a man at a Harris rally asked about Trump: “What are you going to do in the next one year diminish the mentally retarded action of this guy?” The 2020 Democrat responded with a big smile and cheered, “Well said. Well said.”
Thursday on The View, the liberal co-hosts gushed over 2020 candidate South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigeg attacking Christians about the climate, during his CNN town hall late Wednesday. The same View hosts who hate God being brought into the topic of abortion, loved that Democrats were bringing God into climate change.
The View co-host Sunny Hostin was angry on Monday’s show, at the news that rapper Jay-Z had partnered with the NFL as an adviser for its “social justice initiatives,” without Colin Kaepernick’s consent. She was also outraged at Jay-Z’s statement that blacks were “past kneeling,” in protest at police brutality, calling it “ridiculous” “inappropriate” and “insensitive” because apparently police force was a “leading” cause of death among young black men in the United States.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the first show of The View’s new season displaying a more libertarian stance on hot-button issues such as gun rights and free speech. After suggesting that we didn’t need more gun laws, but needed to close the loopholes in our current laws at the beginning of the show, she went on to make an impassioned plea for her fellow actors in Hollywood to stop blacklisting Trump supporters.
2020 candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was guest on Friday’s The View where he received ample praise from the liberal co-hosts but was called out by hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro. Co-host Sunny Hostin admitted that she didn’t understand why de Blasio’s approval ratings were low in New York, considering all of his “terrific accomplishments.” She gushed that his policies should be copied everywhere across the country.
After Joy Behar argued that black people couldn’t be racist on Monday’s show, The View host doubled down on her comments, Tuesday. The hosts were still obsessing over President Trump’s tweets about Baltimore when Behar decided to defend her own controversial comments from the previous show by scolding her critics that it was a fact every black American suffered under “systemic racism.”
Monday The View began their hot topics segment defending Democrats and attacking Trump for his tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings and his district in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend. Co-host Sunny Hostin tried to make the case that Baltimore was a thriving city but Republican controlled-states were in worse shape, while Joy Behar pushed back against Trump calling Cummings ‘racist,’ suggesting it was impossible for a black person to be racist.
Friday on The View, the liberal co-hosts predicted that Republicans would cheat in 2020 and declared they couldn’t win “legitimately” no matter what. Following the media’s messaging that Republicans were happy to receive “help” from the Russians in 2016, and would do so again, the hosts warned that if Trump won reelection in 2020, everyone should call into question its legitimacy.
