Friday on The View, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) was on the show to discuss her 2020 presidential run. Meghan McCain was the only host to ask Harris about her stance on decriminalizing illegal immigration, while the other hosts focused heavily on race-related questions.
On The View Thursday, co-host Joy Behar lamented to her Democrat guest that Trump’s ICE raids were just like the Holocaust. To 2020 Democratic candidate, Senator Michael Bennet Behar demanded to know what Democrats were going to do about these raids, which were “reminiscent of Nazi Germany.”
You would think that having a national television platform would cause one to think twice before making baseless accusations. But when you’re a host of The View, you’re allowed to make fact-free claims all the time. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg did that today on Wednesday’s show, claiming evangelical leaders don’t care enough about sex trafficking and pedophilia, while discussing the Jeffrey Epstein case.
During a segment on the arrest of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Tuesday, View co-host Joy Behar tried desperately to connect the longtime Democrat donor to President Trump. Despite the fact that Epstein was a major donor to the Clinton Foundation and President Bill Clinton reportedly took over two dozen trips with the sexual predator on his private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express,” with underage girls in tow, Behar still tried to make it about Trump.
Another Democrat running in the 2020 election for President, Andrew Yang, was a guest on ABC’s The View Monday. As per usual, co-host Sunny Hostin only wanted to know how far left the Democrat, was willing to go, pressing him on issues like universal healthcare and reparations. Strangely enough, co-host Joy Behar was skeptical about Yang’s “monthly dividend” plan, saying it wasn’t a long-term solution, while her liberal co-hosts were all on board with it.
According to reports from TVLine, Tv Guide and The Daily Beast, lone, right-leaning host of The View, Meghan McCain might not return to the talk show when the new season begins this September. Those “close to McCain” reportedly told the media that she may quit because she felt “like a caged animal” after two years on the show getting into constant charged confrontations with her liberal co-hosts, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg.
Former Republican Governor of New Jersey and ABC News contributor Chris Christie appeared on The View Friday to analyze last night’s Democratic debate. However, the liberal hosts were more interested in attacking him for working for the Trump administration. The segment ended in a total meltdown from each of the hosts, ranting and raving over how awful the president is.
Democrat 2020 candidate and former Obama cabinet member Julián Castro came on ABC’s The View Thursday following last night’s Democratic debate, to receive softballs and high praise from the liberal hosts. While Meghan McCain pressed him on his support for open borders, co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar lavished praise on his performance and didn’t critique any of his far-left policies.
Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are no strangers to hyperbole and dramatics on The View. After Behar said Trump was on his way to exterminating illegal immigrants last week, Whoopi claimed that Trump was on his way to criminalizing and exterminating gay people on Wednesday’s show.
When you are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome it’s hard to remember some basic facts. Co-host of The View, Joy Behar, forgot that Norway is on another continent on Tuesday’s show, when she asked if kids from “Norway” would be treated the same at border facilities.
Ex-Republican and Washington Post columnist George Will appeared on The View Friday to promote his book and do the only thing right-leaning commentators are invited on television to do: bash President Trump and his supporters. Will got right to that, comparing “Trump Republicans” to cockroaches that had infested the party, to the friendly hosts. However, the tables turned quickly in the second half of the interview, as the liberal hosts attacked him for being against reparations.
Joy Behar defended Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on The View Wednesday, after the Democrat called ICE detention centers, “concentration camps.” Behar stood out from the rest of the hosts in agreeing with Ocasio-Cortez’s loaded assessment of President Trump's immigration policies, even suggesting that America was on the way to its own Holocaust.
