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.
On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
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.
As New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio announced overnight he was joining the crowded Democrat 2020 field, the hosts of The View were decidedly split on their opinion of De Blasio. Announcing the topic, co-host Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t stop laughing at the apparent absurdity of the unpopular De Blasio running for President, while her liberal co-hosts earnestly tried to make the case that he his radical policies had been good for New York.
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is trying to win back the media’s favor after Pete Buttigieg replaced him as the media’s favorite shiny new penny. Tuesday, he “re-launched” his presidential campaign on The View, going on an apology tour for not fully acknowledging his “white male privilege,” as he was pressed nearly entirely from the left from the co-hosts.
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.
Meghan McCain says conservative things on television -- especially calling out the Left for anti-Semitism, saying the Democrats may be echoing Britain's Labour Party soon -- and so now she's getting thrown under the bus. On NBC's Late Night, Seth Meyers interviewed McCain, and tried to shame her televised remarks taking on radical Rep. Ilhan Omar. Criticizing Omar was "unfair" and even endangering her safety.
The View co-host Meghan McCain had a tense exchange with Late Night host Seth Meyers Tuesday night, after the liberal host repeatedly berated McCain for criticizing Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar. As Meyers couldn’t get McCain to admit she had said anything wrong, she turned the tables on the host by calling out his liberal bias.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s cheerleading squad, also known as the ladies of The View, praised the South Bend Mayor for admitting he has white privilege during an appearance on The Daily Show. Behar also contended that even poor “white guys” still have white privilege while the rest of the panel gushed over “Mayor Pete,” whom they described as an “antithesis” to President Trump.
Not surprisingly, the ladies of The View decided to politicize the shooting that took place at a synagogue in Poway, California over the weekend. While the topics of gun control and cracking down on “hate speech” came up throughout the course of the conversation, no one took it further than co-host Joy Behar, who told President Trump that he was “the culprit” of the attack.
