Sounding like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, The View’s Sunny Hostin argued Wednesday that she “believed in the 2nd Amendment” but wanted to see various types of guns “banned.” The show’s host echoed the other liberal hosts at the table in wondering “why” any American would need certain types of guns, modifiers and silencers. Hostin tried to have her cake and eat it too by saying she “didn’t want to take anyone’s guns away” but the government should “ban” several types of guns.
After Monday’s show was interrupted with live news coverage, ABC’s The View got its first chance to respond to Sunday night’s mass shooting on Tuesday’s program. As to be expected, the dialogue was high on emotions and low on facts, with the hosts reciting Democrat talking points, praising Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night rant, and urging viewers to vote Republicans out of office for not doing enough to stand up against “the gun lobby.”
Following the networks’ lead this morning, ABC’s The View expressed disgust at Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who won out the primary vote against Trump-backed Republican incumbent Luther Strange yesterday. Moore’s staunch conservative and Christian views triggered the show's hosts to rant and rave about how “scary” his viewpoints were, as host Sara Haines even worried that Moore would try to “legislate” Christianity.
As the left likes to say, never let a serious crisis go to waste! While discussing the absolute devastation in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, some hosts at ABC’s The View wondered if the lack of media attention was a result of racist mainland Americans. Instead of putting the blame on the media for being late to alerting Americans to the serious crisis, The View’s Sunny Hostin instead suggested the skin color of Puerto Ricans was why Americans didn’t “care” about what they were going through.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts continued their network’s obsessive coverage and hysterical handling of the NFL protests this weekend, that were in response to President Trump’s condemnation of the league allowing them to happen in the first place. The ladies at The View took a hard left position on the protests, as to be expected, praising Colin Kaepernick as “very American,” and bashing Trump as “scary” “crazy” and the “bum-in-chief.”
Not surprisingly, Lyin’ Brian Williams prevailed during the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards as the winner of the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis thanks to a bonkers quote about life in communist Cuba. The Federalist’s Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway served as the category’s presenter while House Freedom Caucus Chairman and Republican Congressman Mark Meadows (N.C.) accepted the award in jest on Williams’s behalf.
In the realm of bizarre, wacky and just plain stupid things said on ABC’s The View, this has to up there as one of the strangest statements made on this show recently. While discussing President Trump’s address to the United Nations September 19, the hosts took pause to wonder if Trump had a “strategy” in calling Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” because it was a “phallic” symbol.
Charlottesville was back on the hot topics table at ABC’s The View, September 15, one month to the day after violence broke out on the campus of the University of Virginia. But instead of thought-provoking conversation on the serious issue, as usual, conspiracy theories about the right was the prevailing opinion expressed at the table by the liberal hosts. Whoopi Goldberg had the most mind-numbing take, actually wondering out loud if the right had “made up” Antifa, so they could have something to “bitch about.”
Now that President Obama is out of office, it’s apparently time to rewrite history. Over at ABC’s The View, the panel can’t stop finding new ways to describe our former president in ways that are detached from reality. During a brief segment on Thursday’s show, the panel discussed whether or not President Trump was more bipartisan than President Obama, after the alleged deal he made with Democrats about DACA. The panel was skeptical but said, if true, that it was a good thing for Trump to concede to Democrats or, as they put it, “be bipartisan.”
September 13 on ABC’s The View, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made her first talk show appearance since the election ten months ago, to promote her recently released memoir, What Happened. She sat at the table for over 40 minutes, fielding mostly friendly questions from the hosts. Host Joy Behar even revealed when Clinton lost the election, she felt like a friend had died and “went into mourning.”
Monday on The View, the two most liberal hosts made a claim so absurd it begged the question: What world are they living in? The audacious claim came during a discussion on media bias and President Trump. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila pointed out conservatives’ complaints about left-wing media bias in general, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar brought it directly to Trump, arguing that the media couldn’t be biased, because they covered Trump positively.
The day after hosting conservative guests, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, the liberal ladies at The View had a bone to pick with their guests. One by one, each host went on a tirade against both guests, after Mike Huckabee told a conservative outlet some less than flattering comments about The View hosts’ tone.
