Yes, you read that correctly. The lunacy of ABC’s The View knows no bounds as liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin turned the suggestion that CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta “assaulted” a White House aide yesterday, into the young aide’s fault. Citing her legal experience, Hostin claimed that the aide was actually in the wrong and could be pressed by Acosta for charges of battery.
The View began their show Monday by addressing the Saturday Night Live controversy where comedian Pete Davidson mocked a wounded veteran who also happened to be a Republican running in an upcoming midterm election. While even some of the liberal hosts at The View’s table said Davidson needed to apologize for the rude remark, co-host Joy Behar repeatedly defended the show and comedian, saying it was normal for the comedic show to make offensive jokes, (not noting that most of their “humor” is directed at Republicans.)
Thursday on The View, the liberal hosts grilled their guest, FNC’s Geraldo Rivera, for comments he made about the pipe bomb suspect, and the media’s attacks on President Trump. Rivera, who's not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination, still took heat because he defended President Trump and called out CNN for being partisan and biased.
With just one week before the Midterm elections, The View brought on media-hyped Democrat candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams of Georgia, to tout her party’s highly misleading claims that blacks are being denied votes in that state due to her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp. In fact, the only host on the show to press Abrams on her actual policy positions was right-leaning Meghan McCain.
Monday on The View, co-host Joy Behar snapped at her fellow co-host Meghan McCain after she was called out for changing the topic twice to make a liberal point. The second time, Behar lost it, spouting, “I jump to wherever I damn please!” as the audience loudly applauded her for standing up to her right-leaning co-host.
In the middle of discussing the pipe bombs that were sent in the mail to several prominent Democrats this week on Thursday’s the View, co-host Meghan McCain had a come to Jesus moment and apologized for what she said about Hillary Clinton months ago on the show.
On Monday’s The View, the show started off with the hosts ripping into President Trump and “the right” for speaking out against the caravan of illegal aliens marching towards the U.S./Mexico border. Meghan McCain was the only co-host to argue for stronger immigration laws, as the rest of the hosts complained about racism and the lack of “humanity” the President displayed.
During Monday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on Hillary Clinton’s interview on CBS Sunday Morning, where she said that her husband should not have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky affair, dismissing the idea of the affair as an “abuse of power” and asking “where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made?” Believe it or not, co-host Joy Behar, wearing a shirt with the word “Resist” displayed in capital letters, decided to make a comment that she knew would not impress the ultra-liberal, Hillary-loving studio audience. Her co-hosts soon followed her lead.
Co-host Meghan McCain called out her liberal co-hosts and Democrats for defending Senator Elizabeth Warren, on Tuesday’s The View, after Warren released DNA test results showing she greatly exaggerated her Native American heritage. After Whoopi Goldberg went out of her way to defend Warren’s claims, and Joy Behar claimed Warren’s tall tale didn’t matter, McCain argued that they and their fellow Democrats would’ve been singing a different tune had a Republican made these same claims about heritage.
The View co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made an outrageous argument on Thursday’s show that should raise eyebrows. Discussing Melania Trump’s comments stating we needed evidence when accusations of sexual assault are made, Hostin grew irate after co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain defended the need for due process. Objecting to the need for supporting evidence of any kind, Hostin gushed, “A woman’s word is enough!”
View co-host Meghan McCain on Tuesday called out the hypocrisy of her liberal co-host Joy Behar. Discussing Brett Kavanaugh and sexual abuse claims against powerful politicians, McCain reminded, “Joy has also said that Al Franken should come back [to the Senate]. She has publicly on the show.”
Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity.
