The hosts of The View Friday were unanimously angry about ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s 47-month-long sentencing by a judge Thursday, calling it “immoral” “shameful” and wishing that he’d “rot in jail for the rest of his life.” Host Joy Behar even shared her own conspiracy theories that the judge was a Trump supporter and wondered if Mitch McConnell had something to do with it.
Thursday on The View, the co-hosts got into a heated argument over whether Democrats needed to vote on an anti-Semitism resolution, after Rep. Ilhan Omar got blowback for multiple anti-Semitic statements she’s made recently. A frustrated Sunny Hostin tried to turn the scandal around and blame Republicans for their own bigotry, while Meghan McCain tearfully ranted that she was afraid of what the Democrats’ hesitance on condemning Omar meant for the country.
Another 2020 Democrat contender, Washington state governor Jay Inslee, was the guest on The View Monday, after Senator Bernie Sanders appeared on the show Friday. Meghan McCain was the only co-host to take the environmentalist Democrat to task over the Green Deal, laying out specific problems with it. Unfortunately, Inslee wasn’t given much time to respond as co-host Joy Behar cut to commercial right as the discussion was heating up.
Even though Vermont Democrat senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders identifies as a “democratic socialist” he was pressed from the left by the co-hosts of The View on Friday’s show. Bernie fan Joy Behar actually apologized for having to ask him “tough questions.”
Just like his boss and hero James Comey, McCabe has written a Trump-trashing book, and like Comey, he’s getting hours and hours of air time to sell laughable notions, like the idea that the FBI has been utterly nonpartisan. This man will say anything. Truth means nothing. He’s worse than Comey. It barely matters to his interviewers that McCabe was fired from the top of the FBI for…lying his face off to the FBI.
Several Democrats running in 2020 for president have visited ABC’s The View for largely friendly interviews that still somehow manage to be more even-handed than what they experience on actual news programs. However on Wednesday’s show, Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii surprisingly faced tough questions from hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro about her position against U.S. intervention in Syria and Venezuela.
Disgraced former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe made the media rounds Tuesday promoting his new book, which is full of salacious claims and stopped by The View for a lengthy discussion about it. However, only co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman called into question McCabe’s stories, even though he was fired from the FBI for lying to federal investigators.
Newly announced 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) made the media rounds Friday after several other Democrats threw their hats in the ring this week. Booker made his first stop at ABC’s The View, where he was pressed from the left by co-hosts Joy Behar and Ana Navarro. Co-host Meghan McCain however questioned Booker’s reputation for inauthenticity and grandstanding, to which the Democrat contested, saying he was “proud” of his shamefully partisan performance at the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
Tuesday on The View, the hosts interviewed potential 2020 independent candidate and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. Despite Schultz’s liberal politics, the notion that he could be more moderate than Democrats running and thus steal votes away from Dems has driven the media to hysterics, including the women at The View.
Just when you think The View can’t get any more unwatchable, they bring on CNN journalists as their guests. On Thursday's show, host Chris Cuomo came on to talk about pretty much everything in the news cycle except Covington. He even defended Buzzfeed for their inaccurate anti-Trump report released last week, while defending his own network as having no bias but slamming Fox News for its own.
View co-host Whoopi Goldberg shamelessly defended the media Tuesday, after they spent all day Friday hyping the Buzzfeed report that claimed President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress, and was later refuted by Robert Mueller that same day. Conservative co-hosts Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman slammed the media’s initial response to the Buzzfeed report, arguing they were helping Trump get re-elected, a claim Whoopi took issue with.
Only on The View would you hear a host compare the radically leftist mayor of New York City to “a Republican.” That happened on Wednesday’s show, when the hosts gave Bill De Blasio a tougher shake than most news programs do, but still praised his socialist health care plan that guarantees free health care for illegal aliens. That’s when Joy Behar weirdly praised the mayor’s plan as sounding like a “small government” idea by “a Republican.”
