The View co-host Joy Behar faced pushback from her liberal peers on Tuesday’s show, after she started defending Bernie Sanders comments praising Fidel Castro. However, some of her co-hosts shared her soft take towards the dictator in years past. After Barack Obama praised the dictator, Whoopi Goldberg defended the president's comments as “proper” and “diplomatic" because Cubans were "mourning" him. She also said that Cubans "grew up not thinking the Castro regime was bad."
While The View co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain have bonded in recent weeks over their dislike for Democrat 2020 candidates Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, on Monday's show, Hostin revealed she really blamed the “far right” Republican party for Sanders becoming the Democrat frontrunner.
Last night at a Trump rally, the president criticized the Academy Awards giving Best Picture this year to South Korean film, Parasite. While ripping the decision, he invoked classic American movies, Gone With the Wind and Sunset Boulevard. Trump just merely mentioning Gone With the Wind triggered the hosts at The View on Friday’s show, as they attacked Trump’s “xenophobia” and racism.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) got the gooey treatment by the hosts of The View Thursday, who all were smitten with the presidential candidate’s performance during last night’s democratic debate. While Joy Behar gave the candidate high marks, she couldn’t help but be miffed by Warren going after fellow Democrat Michael Bloomberg, saying she should’ve “gone after Trump more.”
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appeared on The View Thursday to get the usual disdainful treatment that every Republican guest gets on the liberal talk show. It wasn’t the questions he was asked, but more so the rude outbursts, interruptions and snarky comments that came at every turn in the brief interview that displayed the hosts’ contempt for Trump supporters.
The media is still fantasizing over Stacey Abrams becoming the next Vice President. Last week on The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg eagerly asked Joe Biden if he would make the failed gubernatorial candidate, his pick. On Monday’s show, the hosts petitioned Abrams herself to run, and cheered her on as she explained how she would forgo the Constitution to obliterate the electoral college.
Joe and Jill Biden appeared on The View Thursday, where they were treated to 100% gooey, softball questions in a show that looked more like a campaign rally than a media interview. While other 2020 candidates have gotten a mixture of questions from the hosts, it was clear that they weren’t willing or allowed to ask tough questions of the 2020 presidential candidate.
The View co-host Joy Behar had a minor meltdown on-air during Friday’s show, expressing her frustration over President Trump’s acquittal. Visibly rattled, she admitted she had been driven “crazy” by this administration and was getting “nuttier” by the day.
2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana appeared for the third time on The View, Thursday, since announcing his run for president. While he was mostly treated to softball questions from the left, he was also surprisingly pressed to explain how he was going to win over Democrat and swing voters who didn’t believe in same-sex marriage and abortion.
After praising Nancy Pelosi’s antics at last night’s State of the Union address, The View hosts reserved their rage for President Trump awarding Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg claimed the influential talk radio host had done nothing to deserve it, while Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Limbaugh as a racist bigot.
There was a lot of blame being thrown around Tuesday for Monday’s chaotic Democrat caucuses in Iowa, however, one common theme emerged on ABC: could it be because there’s too many white people? On Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos blasted the state as “unrepresentative, 92% white” to his Democrat progressive guests, and that theme continued on ABC later on The View. Hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar complained that Iowa’s whiteness was a problem for Democrats while Whoopi Goldberg brought up Stacey Abrams as an example of someone who was the victim of a racist election.
The View hosts implored God to save America from President Trump, on Friday, after finding out there wasn’t enough votes from Republicans to allow witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial. Co-host Sunny Hostin seethed that the GOP was now a party of “extremists” who dismantle democracy and the Constitution for power. Friday co-host Ana Navarro tried to find the silver lining and begged John Bolton to spill the beans to the media, instead.
