Wednesday on The View, the panel opened the conversation with shock and dismay at news that the Justice Department was investigating universities’ affirmative action policies and if they were unfair to white students. The table decried the already “unfair playing field” repeatedly, even bringing up slavery as a reason why we still need affirmative action to this day.
Tuesday on ABC's The View, the sole self-admitted pro-life Democrat on the panel, Sunny Hostin, urged her party to reclaim the moral party status from Republicans. But instead of being encouraged by reports that said Democrats were now opening their doors to pro-life candidates, Hostin claimed abortion shouldn’t be the leading moral issue for Christians in her party. Instead, she claimed Jesus was already on the Democrats side, since caring for the earth, the poor and refugees were his primary teachings.
This week news broke that Hillary Clinton’s much touted memoir, that’s due for release this Fall, finally had a title: What Happened. Mockery ensued from the right and left over the groan worthy title that showed Clinton still isn’t willing to take any responsibility for losing the election. That notion was met with vehement agreement and disagreement at the table on The View, as hosts Sunny Hostin and Jedediah Bila battled over why Clinton really lost.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the hosts had on former Ferguson police chief, Tom Jackson, to talk about his new book about his experience in Ferguson during the Michael Brown shooting. During the conversation, Jackson tried to dispel many of the media myths concerning the shooting of Brown, but instead he got an earful from hosts Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg about the credibility of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the panel talked with a self-identified “polyamorous” bisexual actor Nico Tortorella and a group of “sexually fluid” teens, to help educate them about the broad and confusing world of their community. While the panel called on the media to give more positive representations of “sexually fluid” people, the hosts themselves admitted they didn’t even understand what the terms meant. In an unintentionally comical segment, the panel grew visibly more confused and frustrated while scrambling to understand the rules and norms of their more “sexually progressive” young guests.
Just like in the mainstream media, any common sense statement uttered by a conservative on The View is treated with absolute shock and horror. During a particularly stupid conversation Tuesday about a poll which found 58% of Republicans think colleges have a negative impact on the country, libertarian host Jedediah Bila suggested that liberal bias in academia was probably the reason for this poll. But even the mere mention of something awry in that untouchable institution provoked outrage at the table.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts fretted that Trump was “leading the charge” on assaults on journalists. After retweeting a gif last week that showed Trump wrestling with a CNN logo, the media threw a temper tantrum, obsessing that the gif was a sign of danger to their very lives. Co-hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin continued that worrying, hyping that even more of these silly tweets were “assaults” on the media that could lead to real life violence.
As has become routine on The View, the liberal hosts ganged up on libertarian host Jedediah Bila Wednesday after she pointed out the mainstream media’s liberal bias. After Playboy's White House Correspondent threw a temper tantrum in yesterday’s press briefing, the panel criticized the White House’s treatment of the media. Host Sunny Hostin gushed that the reporter was only there to be a “watchdog” for the White House and to protect us against a “dictatorship.”
The View proved yet again Monday that the only “views” tolerated on their show are the ones that attack Republicans. After the panel gushed over a New York Times article listing all of Trump’s lies since taking office, libertarian host Jedediah Bila pointed out that you could make a similar list with President Obama or either of the Clintons. This simple statement threw the rest of the panel into a frenzy of outrage for daring to suggest that Democrats also lie.
It’s often disheartening to hear some of the despicable things the audience of ABC’s The View will applaud for. Whoopi Goldberg and her compatriots talked about Cuban relations on Monday and parroted loony moral equivocations between human rights in America and Cuba made by Cuban officials. The audience, eager to shower their undying loyalty, erupted in applause as Whoopi repeated the communist regime's talking points.
The View, ABC’s morning talk program that elevated Raven-Symone to political punditry, engaged in one of its more oafish rants Thursday on one of the many topics about which it knows very little: the Constitution. In the wake of an agitated socialist attempting to engage in the mass murder of his political opponents, the panelists at The View changed the subject to berating the Second Amendment and the limits it places on gun control.
The female co-hosts of ABC’s The View weekday program regularly get into arguments and often try to shout over each other, but Monday set a new standard when Jedediah Bila declared that former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey came off as a "coward" during his Senate testimony last week.
“I don’t think he was lying,” Bila stated before noting that her issue was definitely with Comey, who “sat there for so long” and moaned: “Oh, this made me uncomfortable.”
