Appearing as a guest on Thursday's The View on ABC, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris smeared President Donald Trump as "the poster child for white supremacy" as he complained about several black celebrities who have embraced the Republican President. Harris: "What about addressing the disrespect and disregard for our community that was done? And what about him being the poster child for white supremacy and standing for the people who look to devalue our lives?" Liberal co-host Joy Behar then hyperbolically injected: "And destroy the world."
Tuesday on The View, host Whoopi Goldberg was adamant that schools needed to provide free birth control to teenagers without parental consent, because they “don’t teach sex education at school.” Whoopi first made this strange allegation on a February 2 show, when she said that a school shouldn’t have to notify parents before putting condoms in the boys' and girls' bathrooms.
On Monday's The View on ABC, as the group discussed Ted Koppel's recent interview with Sean Hannity in which he accused the conservative FNC host of being bad for the country, liberal co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and Joy Behar all wrongly accused Fox News of promoting birtherism conspiracy theories against President Barack Obama. Ironically, a Nexis search reveals many examples of FNC anchors over the years disputing the conspiracy theories that Obama was born in Kenya, as they repeatedly made known their belief that he was born in Hawaii and that those who claimed otherwise were misguided.
Friday on ABC’s The View, the show immediately began by lamenting loudly over the proposed 2018 budget, released Thursday. Host Joy Behar complained that she couldn’t wait to bring up the topic because it was “so horrific and so horrendous:”
Wednesday on ABC’s The View the panel blasted Trump for honoring the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL at last night’s address before Congress. Host Sunny Hostin had the harshest take, calling the move “exploitative,” even blaming Trump for the veteran’s death.
On Friday's The View on ABC, as Breitbart News senior editor at large Joel Pollak appeared as a guest, co-host Sunny Hostin tried to claim that White House advisor and former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon is someone who has made a "laundry list" of "bigoted statements," but, when pressed, failed to name a single example. The segment began with co-host Joy Behar recalling that some liberals have called the website "white supremacist," as she asked her guest how he would describe it.
Friday on the View, the panel talked about the Oscars and whether or not it was a good idea to make a political speech from the stage. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin pounced on the notion, saying the Oscars was the opportune moment for actors to be political, while Jedediah Bila blasted the move as alienating viewers with different beliefs.
As Republicans work to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the left is fighting tooth and nail to keep it alive, from hyping scare stories of what could happen if it is repealed, to flat-out denying the devastating effects it has caused on so many families. On Thursday’s the View, the liberal hosts on the panel staunchly defended the universal health care law, arguing in circles with the only host critical of the law, Jedediah Bila. Whoopi Goldberg even tried to reason away the negative effects of the law as the insurance companies’ fault.
On Monday’s The View, host Whoopi Goldberg highlighted a famous black American, as the panel has done every day in February in honor of Black History Month. Since today is Presidents Day, naturally the honored person was President Barack Obama. But since it was Obama, the normally short segment turned into an all-out gush fest, touting a long list of his liberal accomplishments that supposedly brought the country together.
On Thursday’s The View, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar praised the intelligence community for leaking confidential information to the press, calling them “whistleblowers.” During a segment on the confidential leaks, only host Jedediah Bila argued that these leaks were as problematic as what the story they revealed. Hostin fought back, repeatedly stating, “The leak is not the story!”
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the panel touted their reputation for not just being a fluff show but giving their viewers hard-hitting news. Unsurprisingly, the mostly-liberal panel didn’t realize that opinionated, unhinged rants about Trump are not the same as fact-based, unbiased news reporting.
Thursday on The View, the mostly liberal panel surprisingly talked about an event that ABC’s news shows routinely ignore: the annual March for Life. The hosts were respectful of the marchers but Whoopi Goldberg took issue with the march’s use of the term “pro-life.” The whole panel then made contradictory and confusing arguments then about how one could be both “pro-choice” and “pro-life.”
