A new Quinnipiac poll out Tuesday reveals the Democrats’ push to impeach President Trump appears to be working against them with voters, with a slight majority now opposing impeachment. The hosts of The View were upset at this news and lashed out at their Republican guest co-host, former Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie on Wednesday's show, blaming Republican “tactics” for persuading voters against impeachment.
The hosts of The View talked briefly Tuesday about Clint Eastwood’s latest biographical film on fake news victim Richard Jewell, who was falsely branded by the media as a terrorist in 1996. Instead of discussing the media’s culpability in ruining this man’s life, however, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Eastwood instead for his film’s depiction of a now-deceased Atlanta Journal-Constitution reporter.
The hosts of The View were all over the map on Monday’s show while discussing the latest strong jobs report that was released Friday. Unable to face facts, the hosts tried to argue the economy was actually a negative for Trump. The liberal hosts suddenly pretended to care about the rising deficit, while at the same time, griping that more money wasn't being put into food stamps. Co-host Joy Behar even suggested that half the country supported impeaching Trump because the economy wasn't benefiting them.
The hosts of The View revealed the absurd lengths they will go to defend their favored candidate on Friday’s show. After Joe Biden shouted down a Democrat voter on the campaign trail for daring to question why his son was qualified to be on the board of Ukrainian gas company, Burisma, the hosts claimed Biden was just responding like any parent would when their “kid” was attacked.
If you’re looking for insightful political analysis, The View might be the most obvious show to skip. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg proposed her theory that Republicans and Trump’s base would abandon Republicans in Congress if they continued to oppose impeaching President Trump. Yes, you read that correctly. According to Whoopi, Republican voters really wanted to “keep the country together” by joining the Democrats in ousting President Trump.
Predictably, the liberal View hosts weren’t embarrassed by Democrat witness Pamela Karlan’s smug, rage-filled performance during Wednesday’s impeachment inquiry hearing. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and guest host Bari Weiss even defended the Stanford professor attacking the President's teenage son, before ripping into Republicans as hypocrites who don't care about the migrant children at the border.
In what has increasingly become Democrats’ favorite excuse, The View’s Sunny Hostin claimed Kamala Harris’s failed campaign was due to racism and sexism. On Wednesday’s show, the co-host was visibly distraught at the news Harris had dropped out of the 2020 race. Instead of acknowledging the Democrat's campaign problems, Hostin pulled the race and gender cards. Along with Joy Behar, she also suggested the country was more racist after they elected Barack Obama twice, because voters then elected President Trump.
Monday on The View, each liberal host blew a gasket over President Trump cracking down on bloated government assistant programs, calling it “cruel.” The hosts were referring to a Trump administration proposal that would place reduce SNAP’s budget by an estimated 4.2 billion dollars and place tighter work requirements upon those who receive food stamps. One host even wondered what was “wrong” with allowing the government to "feed and house" millions of people.
On Wednesday’s The View, the frequently uncivil hosts spent a short segment reminiscing over more civil times in the country. While Whoopi Goldberg wondered why the country couldn’t return to having polite disagreements at the dinner table this Thanksgiving, her co-hosts suggested it wasn’t our fault; it was President Trump’s.
The View hosts couldn’t come to agreement on Monday’s show on the topic of Facebook and free speech. Since October, the media has been attacking the social media platform for not following Twitter’s example in banning political ads, (yet). Co-host Joy Behar complained the website was promoting “dangerous propaganda” just like how the media covered candidate Trump during the 2016 election.
The View hosts were riled up Friday, after their show had been preempted most of the week by the televised impeachment hearings. Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar were devastated by the news that more independents were against impeachment, and the President’s approval ratings had shot up since the hearings began. The two lectured Americans for not believing the Democrats, and media’s impeachment arguments.
The View returned Thursday after being interrupted by this week’s wall-to-wall impeachment hearings coverage, to discuss that very topic. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin claimed President Trump was running scared because Democrats had the smoking gun. However, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman weren’t convinced and pointed out how far removed Democrats were from public opinion on impeachment.
