On Thursday’s The View, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar praised the intelligence community for leaking confidential information to the press, calling them “whistleblowers.” During a segment on the confidential leaks, only host Jedediah Bila argued that these leaks were as problematic as what the story they revealed. Hostin fought back, repeatedly stating, “The leak is not the story!”
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the panel touted their reputation for not just being a fluff show but giving their viewers hard-hitting news. Unsurprisingly, the mostly-liberal panel didn’t realize that opinionated, unhinged rants about Trump are not the same as fact-based, unbiased news reporting.
Thursday on The View, the mostly liberal panel surprisingly talked about an event that ABC’s news shows routinely ignore: the annual March for Life. The hosts were respectful of the marchers but Whoopi Goldberg took issue with the march’s use of the term “pro-life.” The whole panel then made contradictory and confusing arguments then about how one could be both “pro-choice” and “pro-life.”
On Thursday’s The View, the hosts spouted off on Wednesday’s press conference where Donald Trump refused to call on CNN reporter Jim Acosta, calling his news organization “fake news.” The conflict came over CNN repeating an unsubstantiated report from BuzzFeed, which claimed that Russia had “compromising information” on Trump. Though many in the media denounced the report, many still shared it. The panel on ABC’s The View thought it was perfectly acceptable for CNN to share this story and rejected Trump calling the story and CNN “fake news.”
From defending flag burning to justifying anti-Trump violence, the largely liberal panel at ABC’s The View frequently proved this year that the only “views” that were acceptable came from the radical left. We’ve broken down the worst of the worst liberal outbursts from the 2016 season in the cringeworthy video below.
On Good Morning America December 2, anchor George Stephanopoulos argued with Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway over the media’s reaction to the election. When Conway brought up the fact that media was suddenly against the electoral college after their candidate lost, Stephanopoulos shot back, “No one is questioning the victory.” But is that really true? Since November 8, many journalists have openly challenged the election results and pinned their blame on the electoral college.
Wednesday on The View, the ladies turned their self-admitted “rage” over the election results into a tentative plan of how to stop Trump from entering office. Host Joy Behar argued that the Constitution left a “chance” for Trump to get forced out, with help from the electoral college.
On Wednesday’s The View, the notoriously biased panel touted their trustworthy reputations, in a completely unironic segment. While discussing ‘fake news,’ the panel contrasted right-leaning media website Breitbart with the “news” they give on The View. The most radically left hosts, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg, gushed over their own credibility, touting that any facts they give are “fact-checked” by ABC News.
Wednesday on The View, the panel made some wild predictions about what would happen during Donald Trump’s presidency. But not before making some clearly factually inaccurate statements. The panel blamed Trump for supposedly taking away people’s health insurance already before warning that Mike Pence was going to take away women’s rights and LGBT rights.
To start off ABC’s The View show December 2, the ladies actually discussed whether or not Trump’s election win was causing a phenomenon of wives spurning their husbands in the bedroom. Calling it the ‘Trump Bedroom Backlash’ Behar asked, “Is Trump causing ‘electile dysfunction?’” before the panel erupted in giggles but also agreement.
Friday’s “Hot Topics” on the View was so incredibly biased it was hard to know where to begin. After playing a leaked audioclip of Trump aide Kellyanne Conway arguing with Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri about the election results, Behar asked the panel if Palmieri was right in calling out Conway for winning on a platform of white supremacists. The liberal panelists wholeheartedly agreed with Palmieri, with Sara Haines making the most ludicrous comment.
Friday morning’s The View started off with the mostly liberal panel having a meltdown over the announcement of Trump choosing retired General Michael Flynn and Alabama’s Senator Jeff Sessions for White House positions. Whoopi Goldberg complained that Sessions and the right wanted to bring back slavery and to deport Muslim Americans. Sunny Hostin then claimed that violence was only coming from the right, while Whoopi and Behar conceded there was violence from the left but it was deserved and provoked. “People better not sit back and just take it,” Behar lamented. “They [Republicans] started it.”
