While Elizabeth Warren routinely collects applause when citing her gender — and at this minute is using it to accuse Bernie Sanders of sexism — The New York Times stepped to the plate to assail The View’s Meghan McCain. Ms. McCain, of course, is these days famous for her co-hosting stint on the ABC show created by Barbara Walters.
The New York Times published an op-ed today rather explicitly calling for the dismissal of The View panelist Meghan McCain. The headline was "‘The View’ Has a Meghan McCain Problem: The daytime co-hosts’ heated bipartisan debates are played down as disagreement among friends. But the strain for 'civility' is tiring."
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the latest 2020 Democrat candidate to appear on Wednesday’s The View. The hosts gave him a warm welcome, fawning over his decision to self-fund his campaign and giggling over his strange tweets during last night’s debate. In fact, nearly all the criticism Bloomberg faced from the hosts was about not being liberal enough. Yet co-host Meghan McCain did get one question in about his party’s problem with anti-Semitism.
On her last week on the show, The View co-host Abby Huntsman held Democrat Adam Schiff’s feet to the fire over which impeachment witnesses were allowed to testify, asking him repeatedly to explain why Joe Biden and his son couldn’t be subpoenaed. Her co-host Meghan McCain also pressed the Democrat to admit that this impeachment process was going to damage his party with the American public.
Even as the danger appears to deflate with Iran, the media won’t stop suggesting we are entering WWIII. The View hosts started Wednesday’s show with that same Chicken Little routine, worrying about their own kids getting drafted. Co-host Abby Huntsman also fretted that by taking terrorist Quasem Soleimani’s life, the U.S. would be on the wrong side of history, while fellow co-host Sunny Hostin worried that President Trump was “provoking” Iran.
2020 Democrat candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was warmly welcomed on Tuesday’s The View, after co-host Joy Behar had sung her praises just the day before. While the hosts questioned her from the left on everything from Iran to impeachment, co-host Meghan McCain actually confronted the Democrat about her bizarre backpedaling on whether General Soleimani was a terrorist.
The bitter media began the new year being outraged over President Trump ordering a drone strike to kill a terrorist, and the bizarre complaining continued on Monday’s The View. The hosts invited ABC News’ political director Rick Klein on the show to parrot Democrat fear mongering about how killing Soleimani was going to start a war with Iran. Co-host Joy Behar refused to give Trump any credit and snarked this “so-called threat” was just a distraction from impeachment.
The hosts of ABC’s The View aren’t exactly known for their even-handed or rational political analysis. While each show is predictably filled with meltdowns over President Trump, sometimes a co-host will say something so bizarre it defies understanding. Here’s our top picks for wackiest analysis from the political talk show, this year:
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain had a nasty fight on Monday’s show when the Republican co-host accused her liberal co-hosts of not wanting to hear a conservative perspective, “ever.” The argument started as the hosts were hyperventilating that Republicans were not “fulfilling their oath” to impeach President Trump and McCain tried to rein in her co-hosts’ emotional reactions back to reality.
The View hosts were grateful to get another opportunity to lavish praise on teenage climate crusader Greta Thunberg after Time Magazine named her their “Person of the Year,” Wednesday. On Thursday’s show, climate-obsessed host Joy Behar bashed President Trump as “jealous” of the “very smart” liberal teen, while her co-host Meghan McCain whined that she wanted the whistleblower to be "Person of the Year."
The hosts of The View were all over the map on Monday’s show while discussing the latest strong jobs report that was released Friday. Unable to face facts, the hosts tried to argue the economy was actually a negative for Trump. The liberal hosts suddenly pretended to care about the rising deficit, while at the same time, griping that more money wasn't being put into food stamps. Co-host Joy Behar even suggested that half the country supported impeaching Trump because the economy wasn't benefiting them.
The View hosts were riled up Friday, after their show had been preempted most of the week by the televised impeachment hearings. Co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar were devastated by the news that more independents were against impeachment, and the President’s approval ratings had shot up since the hearings began. The two lectured Americans for not believing the Democrats, and media’s impeachment arguments.
