Comedian Michelle Wolf from The Daily Show responded "I don't care" when asked by Meghan McCain on The View on Wednesday if her "comedy" appearance at the White House Correspondents Association on April 28 caused the reporters' organization to stop hiring a comedian for their annual dinner.The rest of the View crew surrounded Wolf with encouragement and support, and McCain was smiling through the question.
On Tuesday’s edition of The View, the liberals were upset that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would tweet about a “war against women in the Trump administration.” Joy Behar tried to turn that into a Planned Parenthood argument, and Meghan McCain lost patience with that: “The idea that Planned Parenthood is the number one women’s issue in America, all women...it’s false and I’m sick of this!”
Monday's edition of The View carried a segment promoting Sen. John McCain's new book and an HBO documentary For Whom the Bells Tolls. Once again, Whoopi Goldberg tried to pose as a guardian of decency, when she asked McCain ten years ago if she had to be afraid of slavery coming back if he were elected. The segment also avoided HBO's history of McCain films (doesn't anyone remember the McCain/Palin-trashing Game Change flick?)
The View was engaged in Hot Topic Recycling on Monday. Putting the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem or denuclearization of North Korea were ignored in favor of more piling-on about a leaked insult of Sen. John McCain, which was already addressed on Friday’s show. Meghan McCain surely caused a few jaws to drop by saying if you don’t have role models in politics, well, “You got some on The View, with all of us!” Because The View is America’s center of civil and rational discourse? Joy Behar blew that up within seconds.
On Wednesday's edition of The View, co-host Meghan McCain took a little wind out of the liberal scandal sails by noting Trump was at an "all-time high" in several polls, like 45 percent in an NBC News/Survey Monkey poll. Liberal co-host Sunny Hostin then said she doesn't believe these polls anymore, since Hillary lost.
The liberals on The View geared up to defend Michelle Wolf’s comedy routine for a second day, and Meghan McCain returned to underline how badly conservatives distrust the media elites. Whoopi Goldberg claimed “journalists are an endangered species.” But Joy Behar really took the cake by insisting that no panelist on The View ever attacked Trump voters, just Trump. That’s a Pants-on-Fire lie.
Joy Behar took a nasty shot at Melania Trump on Thursday’s The View and token conservative Meghan McCain fired back, deriding her liberal co-host as “so mean.” The women were discussing the latest on Stormy Daniels. Behar mocked: “Today is Melania's birthday. Happy birthday, Melania.”
On ABC’s The View on Monday, they brought up Kellyanne Conway’s Sunday pushback at CNN’s Dana Bash when she wrapped up the interview by bringing up tweets by Conway’s lawyer husband, George Conway. Bash asked “I just ask you one question that a lot of people are asking me, probably you too. And that is, what is up with your husband's tweets?” Conway shot back that Bash wouldn’t ask this question to a man. Sunny Hostin who used to work at CNN, fiercely defended Bash by saying Conway was "really, really slimy" to question the question.
Just as ABC laid out the red carpet for James Comey on Sunday night, ABC’s “The View” laid out the red carpet for porn star Stormy Daniels on Tuesday, the only “live” interview...even if it mostly sounded like a warmed-over rehash of her 60 Minutes interview. Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti were awarded almost 27 minutes of air time. The big difference was Meghan McCain, who suggested – “no disrespect” – Daniels is offering a “publicity stunt,” making a lot of money on this Trump-bashing campaign:
View co-host Meghan McCain is making a habit of upending the liberal narrative on the ABC program. On Friday, she mocked the idea that Jim Comey is a pious, non-ideological truth teller, saying that the “highly political” ex-FBI Director just wants to be a View co-host.
Token conservative View co-host Meghan McCain on Thursday unloaded on the liberal Joy Behar when she compared Donald Trump to thug dictators like Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin. It all started when Behar sneered, “We have gotten to the point in this world now where we have to rely on the sanity of Kim Jong-un and Putin over the President of the United States. That's where we're at.”
On Monday's edition of The View on ABC, they talked about the liberal "March for Our Lives" protest against the gun-rights movement. Co-host Meghan McCain wonder if the wild language of the child activists like David Hogg calling Republicans "sick f---ers" was counterproductive, and three of her liberal counterparts rushed to Hogg's defense. Whoopi Goldberg argued "whether they're cussing you out, or speaking beautifully, doesn't matter."
