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.
Well you don’t see this “view” very often on a liberal network like ABC. Some hosts at The View admitted Tuesday that they were less than impressed by CNN’s new “facts first” ad campaign.In fact, they thought it was a joke. Host Sara Haines went even further, criticizing the network as a whole for giving in to “editorializing” and lowering their standards of straight news reporting since President Trump has taken office.
It seems like wherever Anita Hill came up in this week’s conversations about Harvey Weinstein, the liberal media kept up that annoying tactic of skipping from Hill’s 1991 allegations directly to Donald Trump’s Access Hollywood remarks, dug up weeks before the 2016 election. Allegations against Bill Clinton don’t come up. Only allegations against Republicans are admitted in their fake-news history lesson.
After spending the past few days obsessing over a Florida Democratic Congresswoman’s claims that President Trump “disrespected” a fallen soldier in a phone call to his widow,The View hosts were still not done blaming Trump for the allegations on Thursday’s show. But in today’s episode, the hosts added fuel to the fire, falsely accusing Trump of doing nothing for reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Wednesday on The View, the hosts praised “brave” rapper Eminem for his crass cuss-out of President Trump, and his followers, during last night’s BET Awards. Telling his fans who supported Trump, bluntly, “F**k you,” he proceeded to call the president a “b***ch,” a “racist grandpa,” and a host of other vulgar things in the lengthy freestyle rap.
Sounding like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, The View’s Sunny Hostin argued Wednesday that she “believed in the 2nd Amendment” but wanted to see various types of guns “banned.” The show’s host echoed the other liberal hosts at the table in wondering “why” any American would need certain types of guns, modifiers and silencers. Hostin tried to have her cake and eat it too by saying she “didn’t want to take anyone’s guns away” but the government should “ban” several types of guns.
After Monday’s show was interrupted with live news coverage, ABC’s The View got its first chance to respond to Sunday night’s mass shooting on Tuesday’s program. As to be expected, the dialogue was high on emotions and low on facts, with the hosts reciting Democrat talking points, praising Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night rant, and urging viewers to vote Republicans out of office for not doing enough to stand up against “the gun lobby.”
Following the networks’ lead this morning, ABC’s The View expressed disgust at Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who won out the primary vote against Trump-backed Republican incumbent Luther Strange yesterday. Moore’s staunch conservative and Christian views triggered the show's hosts to rant and rave about how “scary” his viewpoints were, as host Sara Haines even worried that Moore would try to “legislate” Christianity.
