The View co-host Joy Behar went on a rant on Friday’s show, urging the show’s liberal viewers to unite behind whomever the Democrat nominee will be. Behar painted a bleak dystopian picture of what America is like now under President Trump, warning liberals that to save the planet and their children, they must vote Democrat, no matter what, in 2020.
Actress and singer Jennifer Lopez was the guest on Thursday’s The View, where she promoted her new film, Hustlers, about a group of strippers who steal money from their Wall Street clients. However, the hosts were more interested in hearing about how much the singer loved the liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Prolific horror fiction novelist Stephen King appeared on ABC’s The View, Wednesday to plug his newest book The Institute, about a group of teens with supernatural abilities who are kidnapped by the government, locked up and experimented on. While King claimed he left politics out of his stories, he connected the Trump administration “locking up kids in cages” as making his fictional novel, come to life.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts spun a comment President Trump made about criminals entering the U.S., as another example of how Trump hated black people. While answering a reporter’s question about hurricane refugees, he warned we had to be careful about letting in “very bad people” such as “drug dealers” and “gang members” into the country. View co-host Whoopi Goldberg complained that this was clearly a racist statement about everyone who lived in the Bahamas.
It’s nearly impossible for The View co-host Joy Behar to keep her anti-Trump anxieties to herself, on the rare occasion a Republican guest comes to the show. Even when there is no reason to, Behar finds a way to insert Trump into the conversation. On Monday’s show, this happened again as retiring Republican congressman Rep. Sean Duffy appeared with his wife Rachel Campos-Duffy to discuss his retirement and their growing family. All The View co-host could think about, however, was how Trump was destroying the environment.
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris gleefully laughed on Friday when a voter mocked Donald Trump with what is considered a slur against handicapped people. Yet, NBC has still not covered the incident. ABC and CBS have offered scant coverage and The View hosts defended the intentions of the Democratic senator. On Friday, a man at a Harris rally asked about Trump: “What are you going to do in the next one year diminish the mentally retarded action of this guy?” The 2020 Democrat responded with a big smile and cheered, “Well said. Well said.”
An argument broke out on Friday’s The View, between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, over whether Bernie Sanders and other 2020 Democrats were pushing eugenics as a way to combat climate change. Whoopi fiercely defended Sanders’ promoting abortion as a way to slow population growth, even claiming that the eugenics movement had nothing to do with minorities or birth control.
Thursday on The View, the liberal co-hosts gushed over 2020 candidate South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigeg attacking Christians about the climate, during his CNN town hall late Wednesday. The same View hosts who hate God being brought into the topic of abortion, loved that Democrats were bringing God into climate change.
2020 Democrat candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders was guest on ABC’s The View Wednesday, where he was praised for his radical socialist politics being more popular than they were just four years ago. After co-host Abby Huntsman asked him if the media treated Biden fairly next to Trump, co-host Meghan McCain pressed him on what Republicans in Congress he would actually work with, as POTUS.
The View co-host Sunny Hostin was angry on Monday’s show, at the news that rapper Jay-Z had partnered with the NFL as an adviser for its “social justice initiatives,” without Colin Kaepernick’s consent. She was also outraged at Jay-Z’s statement that blacks were “past kneeling,” in protest at police brutality, calling it “ridiculous” “inappropriate” and “insensitive” because apparently police force was a “leading” cause of death among young black men in the United States.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the first show of The View’s new season displaying a more libertarian stance on hot-button issues such as gun rights and free speech. After suggesting that we didn’t need more gun laws, but needed to close the loopholes in our current laws at the beginning of the show, she went on to make an impassioned plea for her fellow actors in Hollywood to stop blacklisting Trump supporters.
It’s not easy being the most conservative pundit on a liberal program like The View, which airs weekdays on ABC. Just ask Meghan McCain -- daughter of late Arizona Senator John McCain -- who’s been on the show for nearly two years and has clashed regularly with her liberal co-hosts, especially Joy Behar. In an interview for Elle magazine, she claimed: "I feel like I'm controversial. It's a very liberal audience in the studio, and they're very vocal."
