Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the first show of The View’s new season displaying a more libertarian stance on hot-button issues such as gun rights and free speech. After suggesting that we didn’t need more gun laws, but needed to close the loopholes in our current laws at the beginning of the show, she went on to make an impassioned plea for her fellow actors in Hollywood to stop blacklisting Trump supporters.
It’s not easy being the most conservative pundit on a liberal program like The View, which airs weekdays on ABC. Just ask Meghan McCain -- daughter of late Arizona Senator John McCain -- who’s been on the show for nearly two years and has clashed regularly with her liberal co-hosts, especially Joy Behar. In an interview for Elle magazine, she claimed: "I feel like I'm controversial. It's a very liberal audience in the studio, and they're very vocal."
Monday The View began their hot topics segment defending Democrats and attacking Trump for his tweets against Rep. Elijah Cummings and his district in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend. Co-host Sunny Hostin tried to make the case that Baltimore was a thriving city but Republican controlled-states were in worse shape, while Joy Behar pushed back against Trump calling Cummings ‘racist,’ suggesting it was impossible for a black person to be racist.
Friday on The View, the liberal co-hosts predicted that Republicans would cheat in 2020 and declared they couldn’t win “legitimately” no matter what. Following the media’s messaging that Republicans were happy to receive “help” from the Russians in 2016, and would do so again, the hosts warned that if Trump won reelection in 2020, everyone should call into question its legitimacy.
On Thursday’s The View, the co-hosts held a Skype interview with Democrat Adam Schiff about the Mueller hearing and what Democrats would do going forward. Co-hosts Ana Navarro and Whoopi Goldberg badgered Schiff that his party needed to impeach Trump now, while Joy Behar ranted Republicans were treasonous and being “helped” by Russia.
Thursday the hosts of The View reacted to Robert Mueller’s testimony Wednesday and as to be expected, attacked Republicans, while touting how untainted Mueller was from controversy. ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams argued Mueller had done Trump a “huge favor” and was clearly not anti-Trump, while Joy Behar attacked Republicans as being “disrespectful” to veterans.
The hypocritical hosts of ABC’s The View displayed no shame on Tuesday’s show, passionately insisting that former Democrat Senator Al Franken should not have resigned after sexual assault allegations and damning photos came out against him in 2017. Yet the hosts had no problems slamming conservative Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a “guilty” “coward” and “frat boy” when baseless accusations with much less evidence came out against him in 2018.
The View co-hosts kept defending the Democrat “squad” Monday, after the media firestorm surrounding President Trump’s tweets against them refuses to die down. Co-host Sunny Hostin even attributed a fake quote to Thomas Jefferson to hail how patriotic these congresswomen were.
Whoopi Goldberg began the segment with a lengthy diatribe against Trump adviser Stephen Miller for defending Trump this weekend. Reading from a cue card, she began, “You know you’re a racist when":
‘View’ co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro laid blame for protests over Puerto Rico's Democrat leadership squarely on President Trump on Friday’s show. Behar even claimed Trump was responsible for fascism spreading across the globe, comparing him to a deadly virus. Navarro also made excuses for the media's habit of ignoring Democrat scandals, saying that was a result of the “Trump effect.”
The four hosts of The View were unanimous in their displeasure over rally-goers chanting “send her back” at President Trump’s rally last night in Greenville, North Carolina. The hosts claimed it was “frightening” and “dystopian” and “invited violence.” Joy Behar wanted to know why the President couldn’t be charged with hate speech against Ilhan Omar over his tweets that inspired the chant.
Wednesday the co-hosts of ABC’s The View were thrilled at the Democrats’ petulant display on the House floor yesterday voting to rebuke Trump’s “racist” tweets he sent last weekend against four Democrat congresswomen. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg compared the Democrats to patriots standing up against Trump’s “tyranny”, while Sunny Hostin gushed over the “masterful” and “impressive” move by Democrats.
Unfocused rage filled the hosts of The View Wednesday, as they accused President Trump of everything from “squelching” patriotic “dissent” from Ilhan Omar, to being a part of Jeffrey Epstein’s child rape scheme, to killing the planet with insecticides. After playing the press conference yesterday where freshman Democrat representatives Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley sounded off on Trump, even calling for his impeachment over tweets, co-host Sunny Hostin gushed her approval.
