Thursday on The View, the co-hosts got into a heated argument over whether Democrats needed to vote on an anti-Semitism resolution, after Rep. Ilhan Omar got blowback for multiple anti-Semitic statements she’s made recently. A frustrated Sunny Hostin tried to turn the scandal around and blame Republicans for their own bigotry, while Meghan McCain tearfully ranted that she was afraid of what the Democrats’ hesitance on condemning Omar meant for the country.
Even though Vermont Democrat senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders identifies as a “democratic socialist” he was pressed from the left by the co-hosts of The View on Friday’s show. Bernie fan Joy Behar actually apologized for having to ask him “tough questions.”
Disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe made the media rounds Tuesday promoting his new book, which is full of salacious claims and stopped by The View for a lengthy discussion about it. However, only co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman called into question McCabe’s stories, even though he was fired from the FBI for lying to federal investigators.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts addressed the updates to the Jussie Smollett case that suggests there is evidence he fabricated his entire story of being assaulted by two Trump supporters. The co-hosts lamented the damage this would do for actual victims of hate crimes, and Sunny Hostin even admitted that she was embarrassed for believing Smollett and coming out in support for him, initially.
ABC News's political director Rick Klein appeared briefly on The View Thursday to talk about the controversies surrounding freshman Democrats and to tout the Green New Deal proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While co-host Abby Huntsman expressed concern that Democrats were veering too far left, Klein and fellow co-host Joy Behar shut her down, claiming that most Americans supported Democrats’ radical and infeasible policy proposals.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts interviewed potential 2020 independent candidate and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. Despite Schultz’s liberal politics, the notion that he could be more moderate than Democrats running and thus steal votes away from Dems has driven the media to hysterics, including the women at The View.
Tuesday, The View finally addressed the encounter between Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American veteran, Nathan Phillips, at the Lincoln Memorial at the March for Life last Friday. After the media smeared the kids as racists based off of unfounded accusations, they suddenly found longer videos posted which contradicted that narrative. The View’s Sunny Hostin, however, still put the blame on the Convington kids and their parent chaperones, instead of the media or Phillips, for lying about them.
View co-host Sunny Hostin once again showed just how blindly partisan she is on Tuesday’s show, arguing that anyone who agrees with Trump’s border wall is a racist bigot against “brown people.”
ABC’s Senior White House correspondent Jonathan Karl appeared on The View Monday to briefly discuss the two reports out in the Washington Post and New York Times which the media is seizing on as their new “evidence” that President Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 election. However the reports fall short of that and even Jon Karl had to admit that there was “zero evidence” of that to the hosts, much to their chagrin.
View co-host Meghan McCain held her liberal guest’s feet to the fire after the latter repeatedly dodged then flat-out refused to condemn vile, anti-Semitic remarks made by her friend, Louis Farrakhan. Tamika D. Mallory appeared on the show Monday with co-chair of the march, Bob Bland, to address that controversy as well as the claims by pro-life women that they were excluded from the march.
On Wednesday’s show, the hosts of The View predictably were angry at President Trump’s address Tuesday night about the border, and opened the show by ranting about it. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin also combatted Meghan McCain over the policy separating illegal alien children at the border, calling that the real humanitarian crisis.
Democrat Senator Kamala Harris made the rounds on ABC Tuesday promoting her new memoir and aiding the media in bashing President Trump for addressing the nation tonight about the need for a southern border wall. Though she did not make a formal announcement if she was going to run for president in 2020, the liberal hosts at The View treated her as if she were already a candidate, comparing her to Hillary Clinton and pleading with her to stop President Trump.
