The women of The View on Wednesday angrily denounced Ben Carson for an awkward moment during congressional testimony. The Housing and Urban Development Secretary didn’t know what the acronym REO stood for and made a joke about Oreos. This prompted co-host Joy Behar to blow up: “He's also under the influence of Donald Svengali who already created this cult of mentally crazy people! I mean, everybody who believes Donald Trump I believe has to look a little closer.”
The New York Times Magazine has posted its Sunday cover story on ABC's The View, touted as "The Most Important Political TV Show in America." Behar lamented that Hillary Clinton made a big mistake not coming on the show more than once in 2016 so she could show she was a "gregarious grandma." ABC wanted to help her win, and she didn't cooperate!
Tuesday The View co-hosts melted down over former White House counsel Don Mcgahn defying a Democrat subpoena to testify over the Mueller investigation. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin compared President Trump to Richard Nixon, fuming that he should be impeached, while Whoopi Goldberg worried that Trump and his supporters wanted to bring back segregation and take away voting rights from blacks.
Monday at The View, the hosts heaped praise on 2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg for being one of the few Democrats who agreed to do a town hall on Fox News, this past Sunday. Co-host Joy Behar loved that Buttigieg attacked the right-leaning network at one point, and the other hosts commended the Democrat for trying to reach the other side.
Friday on The View, co-host Joy Behar practically begged her guest, 2020 presidential candidate Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), to impeach President Trump. Behar fretted over the Treasury Department not handing over Trump’s tax returns, and the subpoena to Donald Trump Jr. as examples of the administration skirting law and order. Along the way she made some false claims, as is typical of hosts on The View.
2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar appeared on The View Friday and was largely handled with kid gloves. Only co-host Meghan McCain grilled the Democrat on her party’s radical support for abortion. But she was immediately saved from answering any hard questions on the matter from McCain’s liberal co-hosts.
As New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio announced overnight he was joining the crowded Democrat 2020 field, the hosts of The View were decidedly split on their opinion of De Blasio. Announcing the topic, co-host Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t stop laughing at the apparent absurdity of the unpopular De Blasio running for President, while her liberal co-hosts earnestly tried to make the case that he his radical policies had been good for New York.
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is trying to win back the media’s favor after Pete Buttigieg replaced him as the media’s favorite shiny new penny. Tuesday, he “re-launched” his presidential campaign on The View, going on an apology tour for not fully acknowledging his “white male privilege,” as he was pressed nearly entirely from the left from the co-hosts.
Monday at The View, the hosts opened by fretting about access to abortion, after Georgia was the latest state to pass a bill which bans abortions after a woman is six weeks pregnant and a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
Friday on The View, the hosts spent their politics segment attacking President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., as a “stupid” criminal who was unquestionably “guilty as all get out,” of conspiring with the Russians to help Trump win the 2016 election. The topic arose from the news that the Republican chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee had subpoenaed the president’s son to talk about his answers to Mueller about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting. Rumors that he would ignore the subpoena outraged the hosts, who bitterly clung to their belief that the Mueller report didn’t clear President Trump of collusion.
MSNBC’s married morning hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were on ABC’s The View today to plug Mika’s new book and talk politics. The most mind-numbing part came when anti-Trump Scarborough, a former congressman who left the Republican party, gave advice to Republicans, as if he were still one of them.
