Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) who has openly campaigned for impeaching Trump since he took office, was the guest on Friday’s The View. Like two peas in a pod, Joy Behar and Waters hit it off immediately, while hosts Paula Faris and Jedediah Bila actually tried to press Waters on her statements about impeaching Trump, the White House leaks, and the Democratic party’s shortcomings.
After bashing Trump adviser Stephen Miller as a racist for defending immigration reform, then bashing the state of Missouri for their recently passed “racist” law that protects businesses from unfounded lawsuits, the View crew had still more ill-informed hot takes to give on Thursday’s show. Equally as loony liberal activist Michael Moore was today’s guest, and he fit right in with most of the panel’s hatred for the right and for Trump.
After arguing students should be denied college admission based off of their race, the women at The View went on to argue students should be denied their Second Amendment rights. The rants were in response to a 2016 law passed in Texas that allows licensed gun owning students to conceal carry on campus. The law went into effect on community college campuses this week in the state. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila delivered a reasoned and fact-based argument in favor of the law, the rest of the panel shut her down and spewed nonsense in order to further their gun control agenda.
Wednesday on The View, the panel opened the conversation with shock and dismay at news that the Justice Department was investigating universities’ affirmative action policies and if they were unfair to white students. The table decried the already “unfair playing field” repeatedly, even bringing up slavery as a reason why we still need affirmative action to this day.
This week news broke that Hillary Clinton’s much touted memoir, that’s due for release this Fall, finally had a title: What Happened. Mockery ensued from the right and left over the groan worthy title that showed Clinton still isn’t willing to take any responsibility for losing the election. That notion was met with vehement agreement and disagreement at the table on The View, as hosts Sunny Hostin and Jedediah Bila battled over why Clinton really lost.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the hosts had on former Ferguson police chief, Tom Jackson, to talk about his new book about his experience in Ferguson during the Michael Brown shooting. During the conversation, Jackson tried to dispel many of the media myths concerning the shooting of Brown, but instead he got an earful from hosts Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg about the credibility of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”
You won’t believe what Trump just did! Celebrities like Levar Burton and media personalities like Joy Reid are “disgusted,” “horrified” and “disturbed.” They even accused the President of the United States of “abuse of children.” The uproar came after the president gave a speech at the annual Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia on July 24, 2017.
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the panel talked with a self-identified “polyamorous” bisexual actor Nico Tortorella and a group of “sexually fluid” teens, to help educate them about the broad and confusing world of their community. While the panel called on the media to give more positive representations of “sexually fluid” people, the hosts themselves admitted they didn’t even understand what the terms meant. In an unintentionally comical segment, the panel grew visibly more confused and frustrated while scrambling to understand the rules and norms of their more “sexually progressive” young guests.
Seemingly short on anti-Trump material Wednesday, the hosts on The View went after Trump’s daughter Ivanka for a recent social media post.“The first family knows how to make noise on social media, as we know” host Whoopi Goldberg scolded, before explaining what Ivanka did.
Far-left View co-host Joy Behar slobbered all over Bernie Sanders, Wednesday, lauding the socialist as a “hot” “hero.” This is the same Behar who previously said that she was “aroused” by the politician.
Just like in the mainstream media, any common sense statement uttered by a conservative on The View is treated with absolute shock and horror. During a particularly stupid conversation Tuesday about a poll which found 58% of Republicans think colleges have a negative impact on the country, libertarian host Jedediah Bila suggested that liberal bias in academia was probably the reason for this poll. But even the mere mention of something awry in that untouchable institution provoked outrage at the table.
Joy Behar may not understand the ins and outs of the legal battles surrounding gay wedding cakes, but the host certainly claimed to know how Jesus would handle such situations. On Friday, The View co-hosts welcomed Colorado baker Jack Phillips and Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Kristen Waggoner to discuss their case, which the Supreme Court will hear next term.
