For a show that likes to question President Trump’s sanity on a daily basis, the hosts at ABC’s The View sure like to entertain wacky conspiracy theories a lot. The day after the press obsessively questioned the presidential physician’s report that Trump was in excellent health, the talk show hosts couldn’t believe it either, wondering if it was a vast right-wing conspiracy to protect the president.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar sparred with host Meghan McCain and guest host, actress and singer Keke Palmer, over the trustworthiness of the media. Behar and Hostin complained that no one trusted the media anymore, when they were only trying to give “the truth” and “the facts.”
In a hostile, lengthy exchange on ABC’s The View Friday, host Meghan McCain admitted frustration at being the sole Republican host on the show. Trying to explain to host Joy Behar that Trump supporters “don’t care” about the Michael Wolff book, or other controversies the media hypes about the White House, McCain gushed, “I have never felt more conservative and more defensive of the middle of the country than I have before I started working on this show.”
Wednesday on ABC’s The View, the largely liberal panel mocked the idea that officials appointed by President Obama, still working in the federal government, could have an agenda against President Trump.
The hosts at The View are not strangers to comparing President Trump to dictators and terrorists. They spent several shows in 2016 and 2017 comparing the Republican agenda to terrorism, and claiming that Trump was turning America into the Taliban.
The liberal bias on ABC’s daytime talk show The View is so over the top, it’s hard to single out just what qualifies as the worst examples of it that occurred this year.
The View’s reaction to the breaking news Friday that Michael Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI was just about what you would expect from the super partisan show.
In light of all the accusations of sexual misconduct, harassment and assault coming out now against liberals and Democrats, some on the left are hunkering down and sticking to their partisan politics moreso than ever. Longtime host of The View Joy Behar has been increasingly uncomfortable in the past few weeks, as the ABC panel has brought up the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Louis C.K. and now Charlie Rose.
On Wednesday, ABC’s The View began the show with a much more enthusiastic opening than they typically do, as the hosts raved to the excited audience, that Democrats had won races in several key states during last night’s election. Suggesting the election results were a “rebellion” against Trump and his policies, the hosts gushed that America seemed to be heading back on track. “It makes you feel better about the country today,” host Joy Behar gushed.
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, former DNC Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile was in the hot seat to answer questions about the recent allegations she made in her new book about the 2016 election. The liberal hosts were able to grill Brazile on claims she made in the memoir that conservative media seized on, because they put Democrats and the Clinton campaign in a negative light. But as soon as host Meghan McCain tried to ask Brazile about the DNC paying for the infamous Russian dossier, hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin interrupted to answer the question themselves, and followed up with questions trying to contest the conservative host’s claims.
GQ host and former MSNBC crazy Keith Olbermann joined the ladies of ABC’s The View on Friday and he came locked and loaded with head-shaking statements, chiefly his belief that President Trump has been worse for America than Osama bin Laden. In addition, Olbermann made the stark admission that he owes George W. Bush and John McCain apologies for trashing them and wishes Bush could have had a third term as President instead of Trump being in the White House now.
Monday on ABC’s The View, things got heated when discussing the breaking news that morning about ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had been indicted by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller. After announcing the news, the audience cheered as the panel joked that they hoped President Trump would be next. As host Meghan McCain brought up Hillary Clinton’s funding of the Russian dossier, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar angrily shut her down, insisting that Democrats and Clinton had nothing to do with any Russia collusion.
