2020 Democratic candidate Amy Klobuchar appeared on The View Friday and was largely handled with kid gloves. Only co-host Meghan McCain grilled the Democrat on her party’s radical support for abortion. But she was immediately saved from answering any hard questions on the matter from McCain’s liberal co-hosts.
Appearing to be on the verge of a breakdown of some sort during Monday’s Cuomo Prime Time, CNN political commentator and Never Trumper Ana Navarro got all worked up talking about Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and how he’s sided with President Trump more and more.
Monday at The View, the hosts opened by fretting about access to abortion, after Georgia was the latest state to pass a bill which bans abortions after a woman is six weeks pregnant and a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
CNN’s Ana Navarro, on Thursday, lost her mind after William Barr’s press conference. The CNN contributor and ABC’s The View co-host unloaded on the AG in a Twitter rant: “William Barr is a political hack in attorney general’s clothing. It’s simply disgusting.”
Hours before the Notre Dame Cathedral fire with cable news channels moving into rolling coverage from Paris, Monday morning’s New Day featured numerous analysts, commentators, hosts, and journalists defending Minnesota Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar’s comments downplaying the September 11, 2001 attacks and blasting the President for “taking [her] words out of context” and causing her to grapple with death threats.
The View hosted two trans women military members on Wednesday in order to get their personal accounts on President Trump’s impending trans military “ban.” The segment obviously was sympathetic to the pair, felt the U.S. armed forces cater to their gender reassignment needs, but like most View segments, it turned into another attack on the president’s shocking “textbook definition of ignorance,” that amounts to “baseless discrimination.”
March provided television viewers and streaming platform binge-watchers another heavy dose of Trump hate. At least another 40 separate entertainment programs, on major networks, cable TV, and popular streaming platforms continued their vicious anti-Trump propaganda. What once might have been shocking is all too commonplace for a media in the later stages of Trump Derangement syndrome.
It looks like the ladies of The View have fallen in love with openly gay South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who has formed an exploratory committee to run for President as a Democrat in 2020. Co-host Joy Behar opened the segment by touting a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll highlighting that “a majority of Americans have...no problem with a gay candidate.” Behar then asked a follow-up question: “are they ready for a gay President?”
While lately co-host Meghan McCain agrees more than disagrees with her liberal peers at The View, Tuesday that changed when the Republican got into a shouting match with three of her co-hosts over a very familiar argument: the idea that the former administration was untainted by scandal.
Friday the hosts of The View reserved their rage for Education Secretary Betsy Devos, after the administration backpedaled on cutting federal funds for the Special Olympics. Liberal host Ana Navarro tore into DeVos for being wealthy, calling her “Cruella DeVos” while Joy Behar not-so-subtly called her a “bitch.”
Several 2020 candidates have appeared on the ABC talk show The View, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttgieg was back Friday for the second time on the show since it's been rumored he will announce his run for president. The South Bend, Indiana mayor is openly gay, Catholic and quickly rising on the media’s monitor. He received a warm welcome at the View’s hot topics table, where they invited him to attack religious Republicans who supported President Trump, as hypocrites.
CNN really loves anti-Trump Republicans, so who better to bring on to discuss the Republican rebuke of President Trump, than their most vocal Never Trumper? Host Brooke Baldwin welcomed Ana Navarro’s hot take in the 3pm EST hour Thursday after 12 Republicans sided with Democrats in blocking President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the border. Predictably, Navarro only had nice things to say about the “symbolic” rebellion from the right, gushing that even if they lost their seats in the future that it was the right step to take.
