The co-hosts of The View had a heated exchange Thursday over the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. When co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made the case that Assange deserved to be protected under the First Amendment, Meghan McCain took her to task, calling her argument, “straight propaganda.”
Wednesday on The View, the co-hosts argued about the combative exchange between Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Rep. Maxine Waters that happened during a committee hearing Tuesday. When the Democrat committee chair wanted to keep questioning Mnuchin, despite a previously agreed upon ending time, the two had a fiery exchange that prompted View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar to gush about how amazing “Auntie Maxine” was for shutting down the Secretary.
One of the media’s most hated figures in the Trump administration, DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen turned in her resignation letter over the weekend, after months of conflict between her and President Trump. All Monday, journalists alternated between unhinged glee over her resignation and worry that Trump would put someone “more extreme” on immigration in her place. The hosts of The View offered their own scathing criticism of Nielsen, while co-host Sunny Hostin went after Trump for not addressing the “real” threat to our national security.
Wednesday, ABC’s The View devoted an entire show to expectant host Abby Huntsman, celebrating her pregnancy with a baby shower and packed the audience with pregnant women. The irony of the predominantly liberal show celebrating babies is quite ironic considering how the hosts have celebrated a “woman’s right to choose” to kill her baby many times before on the show.
It looks like the ladies of The View have fallen in love with openly gay South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has formed an exploratory committee to run for President as a Democrat in 2020. Co-host Joy Behar opened the segment by touting a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll highlighting that “a majority of Americans have...no problem with a gay candidate.” Behar then asked a follow-up question: “are they ready for a gay President?”
While lately co-host Meghan McCain agrees more than disagrees with her liberal peers at The View, Tuesday that changed when the Republican got into a shouting match with three of her co-hosts over a very familiar argument: the idea that the former administration was untainted by scandal.
After they spent last week defending former Vice President Joe Biden after the left came after him over Anita Hill, the hosts of The View opened the show Monday defending the potential 2020 Democrat contender yet again. Over the weekend, fellow Democrat Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately during a campaign event in 2014, an admission that caused the media to blow up all Monday, wavering on whether their #MeToo standards were still fair, when it affected people they liked.
As Joe Biden is nearing closer to announcing his 2020 run for president, the left’s demanding he apologize for how he “mishandled” Clarence Thomas’s accuser Anita Hill during Thomas's confirmation hearing in 1991. The View hosts disagreed over whether an apology was needed, but everyone could agree that this was all Trump’s fault.
After melting down Monday, View co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin were still refusing to admit that Mueller found no collusion, on Tuesday’s show. A shell shocked Behar expressed confusion that the findings didn’t turn out how she had hoped, while Hostin moved the goalposts, arguing that Trump was an illegitimate president even if he wasn’t guilty of collusion.
After ex-Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested by the FBI for extortion and fraud, the hosts of the View reacted to it on Tuesday’s show. Co-host Joy Behar, who had previously lauded the celebrity lawyer for “saving the country,” admitted she was heartbroken over Avenatti’s fall from grace.
Even as many in the media admitted defeat, after the Special Counsel report revealed no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election, the hosts of ABC’s The View refused to concede this whole charade over collusion was over. Co-host Sunny Hostin expressed the table’s sentiment the best, gushing, “We don’t know anything [yet]!”
Several 2020 candidates have appeared on the ABC talk show The View, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttgieg was back Friday for the second time on the show since it's been rumored he will announce his run for president. The South Bend, Indiana mayor is openly gay, Catholic and quickly rising on the media’s monitor. He received a warm welcome at the View’s hot topics table, where they invited him to attack religious Republicans who supported President Trump, as hypocrites.
