As New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio announced overnight he was joining the crowded Democrat 2020 field, the hosts of The View were decidedly split on their opinion of De Blasio. Announcing the topic, co-host Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t stop laughing at the apparent absurdity of the unpopular De Blasio running for President, while her liberal co-hosts earnestly tried to make the case that he his radical policies had been good for New York.
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is trying to win back the media’s favor after Pete Buttigieg replaced him as the media’s favorite shiny new penny. Tuesday, he “re-launched” his presidential campaign on The View, going on an apology tour for not fully acknowledging his “white male privilege,” as he was pressed nearly entirely from the left from the co-hosts.
Monday at The View, the hosts opened by fretting about access to abortion, after Georgia was the latest state to pass a bill which bans abortions after a woman is six weeks pregnant and a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
Friday on The View, the hosts spent their politics segment attacking President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., as a “stupid” criminal who was unquestionably “guilty as all get out,” of conspiring with the Russians to help Trump win the 2016 election. The topic arose from the news that the Republican chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee had subpoenaed the president’s son to talk about his answers to Mueller about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Rumors that he would ignore the subpoena outraged the hosts, who bitterly clung to their belief that the Mueller report didn’t clear President Trump of collusion.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was on The View Monday where he was mostly grilled from the left on Trump’s relationship with Russia, immigration policies, and his rhetoric. Only one conservative question was allowed for the very end, but regardless, the former Navy SEAL held his own against the very hostile hosts.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin practically put their hands over their ears after Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain referenced scandals that happened under Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, during a conversation on Bill Barr’s testimony yesterday. Whoopi was so desperate to avoid comparisons to the previous administration that she even fabricated something that never happened just to defend the Obama administration.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s cheerleading squad, also known as the ladies of The View, praised the South Bend Mayor for admitting he has white privilege during an appearance on The Daily Show. Behar also contended that even poor “white guys” still have white privilege while the rest of the panel gushed over “Mayor Pete,” whom they described as an “antithesis” to President Trump.
The hosts of ABC’s The View predictably went nuts Wednesday following Bill Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While tearing into Barr for allegedly “lying,” the hosts had sudden concern for ethics at the DOJ, and eagerly hoped the Attorney General would go to prison for “obstructing justice” and trying to conduct a “coup.”
Not surprisingly, the ladies of The View decided to politicize the shooting that took place at a synagogue in Poway, California over the weekend. While the topics of gun control and cracking down on “hate speech” came up throughout the course of the conversation, no one took it further than co-host Joy Behar, who told President Trump that he was “the culprit” of the attack.
Following a one-week hiatus, the liberal hosts of The View had a mini-meltdown over the results of the Mueller report, at Monday’s Hot Topics table. Co-host Joy Behar was adamant that the big mistake here was on Mueller’s part for not forcing President Trump to sit down for a one-on-one interview or testify before Congress. She angrily ranted that had he done so, Trump would have lied for sure and would’ve been impeached “automatically.”
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.”
