The hottest of “Hot Topics” on The View on Thursday was the NFL’s new policy to stop players from kneeling on the field during the playing of the national anthem. Whoopi Goldberg introduced a clip of President Trump on Fox News saying it was “the right thing.” Sunny Hostin went on and on in 46-second rant about how American terrorizes black men, but when Meghan McCain started to speak, she quickly interrupted. McCain yelled: "I'm still talking!"
Comedian Michelle Wolf from The Daily Show responded "I don't care" when asked by Meghan McCain on The View on Wednesday if her "comedy" appearance at the White House Correspondents Association on April 28 caused the reporters' organization to stop hiring a comedian for their annual dinner.The rest of the View crew surrounded Wolf with encouragement and support, and McCain was smiling through the question.
Journalists are freaking out over an alleged admission by Donald Trump that he attacks the press simply to “discredit” reporters and so that “no one will believe you.” CBS This Morning, CNN, ABC’s The View and MSNBC have all fretted over the quote.
On Tuesday’s edition of The View, the liberals were upset that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would tweet about a “war against women in the Trump administration.” Joy Behar tried to turn that into a Planned Parenthood argument, and Meghan McCain lost patience with that: “The idea that Planned Parenthood is the number one women’s issue in America, all women...it’s false and I’m sick of this!”
Monday's edition of The View carried a segment promoting Sen. John McCain's new book and an HBO documentary For Whom the Bells Tolls. Once again, Whoopi Goldberg tried to pose as a guardian of decency, when she asked McCain ten years ago if she had to be afraid of slavery coming back if he were elected. The segment also avoided HBO's history of McCain films (doesn't anyone remember the McCain/Palin-trashing Game Change flick?)
On Thursday's The View, the liberal majority fulminated against Rudy Giuliani suggesting the Mueller probe has accomplished nothing and should wrap it up. Sunny Hostin lamented "He says this is a witch hunt, and it's caught a lot of witches and warlocks! There’s been 75 charges already, 22 people have been indicted so, the suggestion somehow that the Mueller investigation isn't finding anything is nonsense." So Mueller doesn't actually have to convict anyone of anything?
Fox News anchor Bret Baier appeared on ABC's The View on Thursday to promote his new book Three Days in Moscow about Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. But the ABC crew peppered him with questions about their favorite topic -- the White House aide who insulted John McCain -- and whether Fox News is the "administration's mouthpiece," since it's reported Sean Hannity talks to the president nightly after his show. Baier replied "There may be opinion shows that have a direct relationship with the president, and Sean is not calling me and giving me a download of the call."
On Monday, The View team fulminated several times about remarks made about immigrants by White House chief of staff John Kelly (and in his defense, Fox News analyst Tomi Lahren). Later in the show, Empire star Terrence Howard brought his best globalist "borders are imposed by men" blather, and then seemed to lapse into discussing how the native Americans fed the European immigrants, like Squanto and the Pilgrims.
Tuesday’s edition of The View on ABC began with a bizarre spin. The announcer proclaimed: “One of the president's biggest foes, New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman, resigns over sexual abuse allegations. Is this a tipping point for Trump?” Isn’t this an embarrassment for the Democrats? How is everything “a tipping point for Trump”?
On Monday’s edition of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg noted the president touted a new Reuters-Ipsos poll that showed a growing approval rating for Trump among blacks. The View crew refused to acknowledge that was any evidence at all for improvement in the black community, even the record-low black unemployment rate of 6.6 percent, which was announced on Friday.
ABC's The View replaced Meghan McCain on Monday with CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter, who worked on Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in the last cycle. But Carpenter lined right up with Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg in defending Stormy Daniels for doing a comedy skit with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. She even proclaimed Daniels is taking on Trump better than the Democrats. "I hand it to her, and I hand it to Michael Avenatti! "
According to The View’s Joy Behar, “civilized” girls should still be separated from “Lord of the Flies” boys when it comes to scouting. The liberal co-host on Friday dissented from the idea that girls should be apart of the Boy Scouts, saying: “I would say my opinion of this, and it's not popular one, I don't think. I think that girls do not benefit through having boys in their midst at these young ages.”
