As NewsBusters reported yesterday, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro got into a little bit of a dust-up with Whoopi Goldberg on Thursday’s edition of The View. Goldberg abruptly ended the segment not longer after Pirro accused her of suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. During an appearance on Hannity Thursday night, Pirro explained that the situation did not get much better after she tried to leave the studio.
The fallout happened after Pirro answered host Sara Haines question as to why she called her book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals, The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”. Saying she wasn’t “an ideologue,” she slammed the Mueller investigation as a “fake investigation based on a fake document” (the unsubstantiated Trump-Russia dossier.) That upset host Sunny Hostin who shot back, “It was not only based on that and you know that.” CNN commentator Ana Navarro, filling in for Joy Behar, used Pirro’s initial comment to try to pin her into a corner on President Trump:
At a time when feminist media place utmost importance on careers, Paula Faris is making a revolutionary move: She’s changing roles at ABC to focus on a faith project – and to spend more time with her family. On Wednesday, Faris announced her departure from The View and the weekend edition of Good Morning America for a new position at ABC.
The media outrage was out of control yesterday after President Trump’s complimentary comments towards Vladimir Putin and denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election, at a press conference in Helsinki, Finland, Monday morning. That outrage spilled over to Tuesday's coverage, as ABC’s The View hosts were unanimously upset at Trump’s rhetoric, even comparing the words to an act of treason.
Friday, The View’s Hot Topics table, devolved into a shouting match between Republican hosts Meghan McCain and Tara Setmayer. The Never Trump, CNN commentator was a fill-in host for the day, and used the opportunity to air her grievances against Republicans who supported the President as part of a “cult.” McCain took issue with Setmayer’s rhetoric and the two sparred, as some of the liberal hosts chimed in to support Setmayer.
The hosts of ABC's The View started off Tuesday show discussing what they thought about President Trump's recent Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. Surprisingly Joy Behar was really the only one to come out swinging against Trump's nominee.
Friday at ABC's The View, as Republican strategist and CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer filled in as guest host, the panel sat down with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the “Democrat-Socialist” who recently beat out the incumbent in New York's 14th Congressional District primary. While the media has gone gaga over the notion that she could be the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, they've glossed over her radical, leftist viewpoints. Even as two Republicans sat at the View’s table today, they manage to shirk away from confronting Ocasio- Cortez on her platform.
Thursday’s The View started off with an astounding nearly 10-minute-long meltdown over Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and the second chance for President Trump to appoint a judge for the highest court of the land, during his first two years in office. Liberal Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were the most upset about the news with Whoopi angrily attacking host Meghan McCain, Republicans and Christians for potentially challenging Roe v Wade.
Liberal presidential historian and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham was the guest at the end of Tuesday’s The View, where he fulfilled his duty in bashing President Trump in hyperbolic terms, something the anti-Trump hosts could appreciate.
Just under an hour after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the third iteration of President Trump’s “travel ban,” the liberal ladies of ABC’s The View had the chance to weigh in on the immigration order which adds more vetting to travelers from specific countries coming to the United States. While host Meghan McCain tried to bring balance to the table’s discussion, Whoopi shut her down, saying she didn’t need to present Trump supporters’ viewpoints because she didn’t know if anyone really voted for him in the first place.
Monday, The View hosts complained that conservatives calling last week's Time magazine cover, “fake news,” were missing the point. “It’s a symbol!” they decried. The cover, depicted the infamous photo of an immigrant child in tears, supposedly separated from her mother, an image that was used all over by the media to the deride Trump's cruelty. There was no question as to what message Time was trying to portray, depicting that child crying at Trump's feet on their cover with the words, “Welcome to America.” After news broke later that the girl was not actually separated from her mother, Time magazine and other media outlets still went out defending their use of the image, and the View continue the spin Monday.
On Thursday’s The View, the hosts talked with Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging Andrew Cuomo for his seat in New York’s gubernatorial race. The radical activist only got softball questions from the friendly hosts, despite saying some pretty controversial things at the table.
