The View hosts spent a segment on Monday’s show celebrating June as gay pride month. As usual, the hosts found a way to bash President Trump and religious conservatives. Co-host Sunny Hostin bashed Catholics who were against gay pride month, alleging children were safer at pride parents than in church and Jesus would've attended a pride parade.
Not surprisingly, David Letterman’s appearance on The View Friday quickly devolved into Trump bashing. Letterman reminisced about Trump’s many appearances on his show as a private citizen and talked about how “he seemed like a guy” back then, as opposed to now, where he has become a “goon.”
The hosts of The View spent last Friday defending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and made a repeat performance on this Friday’s show, after Democrats and the media pressured her to start impeachment proceedings. The hosts took turns between fawning over Pelosi and then ranting that the “criminal in the White House” needed to be impeached.
2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received an enthusiastic welcome from the hosts of ABC’s The View Thursday, and packed the audience with her liberal fans. The lengthy segment felt more like a political rally, as the audience loudly cheered every answer she gave to the hosts about her support for far-left issues like abortion and student loan-debt “forgiveness.”
On Tuesday’s show, the hosts of ABC’s The View conflated two unflattering videos starring Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that circulated social media late last week. While only one video was altered, the co-hosts claimed both were “fake,” angrily came to Pelosi’s defense, and demanded that both “doctored” videos needed to be taken down.
Meghan McCain cleans her fellow View hosts’ clocks on a near-daily basis. It’s not simply a Left/Right thing. McCain has a better grasp of the facts, avoids lazy talking points and eagerly fires back when her liberal co-stars critique her views. All three tactics were in short supply before McCain joined the show.
The co-hosts of The View went overboard as usual in decrying a Trump administration decision to postpone the release of the new twenty-dollar bills depicting abolitionist hero, Harriet Tubman. After Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin explained the bills wouldn’t come out till 2028 to deal with counterfeiting issues, the hosts slammed it as an obvious racist “dog whistle” to Trump supporters.
With Michael Avenatti embroiled in yet another legal scandal, it’s worth remembering the incredible amount of friendly coverage that he received from liberal television outlets last year. In addition to landing an incredible 254 live television appearances in a single year, the notorious lawyer who previously represented porn star Stormy Daniels received considerable praise from cable and network hosts alike throughout 2018.
The women of The View on Wednesday angrily denounced Ben Carson for an awkward moment during congressional testimony. The Housing and Urban Development Secretary didn’t know what the acronym REO stood for and made a joke about Oreos. This prompted co-host Joy Behar to blow up: “He's also under the influence of Donald Svengali who already created this cult of mentally crazy people! I mean, everybody who believes Donald Trump I believe has to look a little closer.”
The New York Times Magazine has posted its Sunday cover story on ABC's The View, touted as "The Most Important Political TV Show in America." Behar lamented that Hillary Clinton made a big mistake not coming on the show more than once in 2016 so she could show she was a "gregarious grandma." ABC wanted to help her win, and she didn't cooperate!
Tuesday The View co-hosts melted down over former White House counsel Don Mcgahn defying a Democrat subpoena to testify over the Mueller investigation. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin compared President Trump to Richard Nixon, fuming that he should be impeached, while Whoopi Goldberg worried that Trump and his supporters wanted to bring back segregation and take away voting rights from blacks.
Monday at The View, the hosts heaped praise on 2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg for being one of the few Democrats who agreed to do a town hall on Fox News, this past Sunday. Co-host Joy Behar loved that Buttigieg attacked the right-leaning network at one point, and the other hosts commended the Democrat for trying to reach the other side.
