MSNBC host Rachel Maddow came to The View midway through Thursday’s show to discuss the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and her new book. During her time there, she defended Adam Schiff’s lies, suggested Vice President Pence would be impeached too, and defended MSNBC as a nonpartisan news network.
The brother of a murder victim shocked a courtroom on Wednesday as he offered an overtly religious act of forgiveness, urging the killer to turn to Jesus Christ. But you wouldn’t know that from the network morning show coverage on Thursday. Today, Good Morning America and CBS This Morning skipped the appeal to faith, instead portraying it as more generalized forgiveness. Later in the day, View co-host Joy Behar rejected the call to grace and instead insisted, “I think to hold onto the rage gives you strength.”
Chelsea and Hillary Clinton were warmly welcomed on The View Wednesday to plug their new book, but spent nearly the entire interview talking about President Trump’s impeachment, and the 2016 election, instead. Throwing out any pretense of impartiality, the hosts of course began the show urging President Trump’s 2016 rival, to explain why he needs to be impeached.
The View’s diehard liberal co-host Joy Behar admitted it didn’t matter if the unnamed whistleblower had an agenda when putting forth their complaint concerning President Trump’s July phone call with the President of the Ukraine. On today’s show, Behar linked the situation to President Clinton’s impeachment, arguing that he was impeached because of a “partisan” whistleblower, as well.
The View lately has turned into five hosts parroting the same liberal ‘view’ point instead of just 4 hosts doing that. On Monday’s show, the hosts were unified in their disgust for Republicans and conservative media pundits who went on cable news this weekend to question the whistleblower complaint, after new details have come forth. Meghan McCain was more angry than her liberal colleagues, raging that Mark Levin, Lindsey Graham and others were behaving “hysterically” while she simultaneously praised liberal anchors like George Stephanopoulos as reputable journalists.
The View host Joy Behar made a weird argument on Friday’s show about the whole Hunter Biden, Ukraine controversy. The liberal host suggested that because the 2020 presidential candidate and veteran politician suffered a family tragedy decades ago, he should be immune from any Republican attacks which involved his 49-year-old son.
After Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff’s embarrassing display during Thursday’s hearing, where he fabricated quotations from President Trump and then claimed it was a “parody,” the hosts of the View Friday responded to his performance art in very different ways. Surprisingly liberal host Joy Behar wasn’t a fan, but her co-host Sunny Hostin couldn’t be more enthusiastic in her praise, declaring Schiff “the man.”
The liberal hosts of ABC’s The View on Wednesday couldn’t hold back their excitement over House Democrats launching an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Co-host Sunny Hostin even claimed that impeachment would be good for the country and “unify” Americans, while co-host Joy Behar huffed that polls showing otherwise until this point were only because most Americans outside of the media weren’t paying attention to the damage President Trump was doing to the country.
A fight broke out between the hosts of The View to start off Tuesday’s show, as the liberal hosts practically salivated at the idea that Democrats were seriously pursuing impeachment now because of the whistleblower complaint about President Trump’s alleged promise to the president of the Ukraine. But Meghan McCain argued Americans wouldn’t side with Democrats on this one, even calling out her fellow co-hosts for sounding the alarm on impeachment the last time a Republican was in office.
The View co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Joy Behar clashed on Tuesday’s show over the left’s messaging on climate change. After Whoopi Goldberg praised 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s disturbing speech yesterday at the United Nations, an argument ensued between the liberal hosts and Huntsman. While the moderate host slammed the hysterical, fearmongering from Thunberg and the left on climate change, Behar raged that we needed the younger generation to lead the way because older “deniers” didn’t love their grandchildren, enough.
It’s hard to compete with the crazy takes often expressed by hosts of The View, but on Friday, guest Margaret Atwood certainly came close. The author of the dystopian Handmaid’s Tale came to the show to talk about the Hulu adaptation of her book and her new sequel to the thirty-year-old aforementioned novel. While there, the Canadian author slammed the United States' abortion laws, even arguing that the government should pay for every woman’s house, food, clothing and medical bills, if they are “forced to give birth,” or more bluntly, forced to not kill their children.
It seems every week the media spends day after day obsessing over another anonymously-sourced report that makes claims no one can back up. Thursday, journalists were in a frenzy over a Washington Post report which alleged an anonymous “whistleblower” who formerly worked for an intelligence agency, claimed President Trump had promised something “troubling” to an unnamed foreign leader earlier this Summer. Frenzy over the story also hit the ladies at the View table, who worried that the Department of Justice was “covering up” the alleged scandal to protect Trump. Only co-host Meghan McCain had the nerve to point out the media hypocrisy on this topic.
