The hosts of ABC's The View started off Tuesday show discussing what they thought about President Trump's recent Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. Surprisingly Joy Behar was really the only one to come out swinging against Trump's nominee.
Friday at ABC's The View, as Republican strategist and CNN political commentator Tara Setmayer filled in as guest host, the panel sat down with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the “Democrat-Socialist” who recently beat out the incumbent in New York's 14th Congressional District primary. While the media has gone gaga over the notion that she could be the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, they've glossed over her radical, leftist viewpoints. Even as two Republicans sat at the View’s table today, they manage to shirk away from confronting Ocasio- Cortez on her platform.
Thursday’s The View started off with an astounding nearly 10-minute-long meltdown over Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and the second chance for President Trump to appoint a judge for the highest court of the land, during his first two years in office. Liberal Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were the most upset about the news with Whoopi angrily attacking host Meghan McCain, Republicans and Christians for potentially challenging Roe v Wade.
Liberal presidential historian and former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham was the guest at the end of Tuesday’s The View, where he fulfilled his duty in bashing President Trump in hyperbolic terms, something the anti-Trump hosts could appreciate.
Just under an hour after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the third iteration of President Trump’s “travel ban,” the liberal ladies of ABC’s The View had the chance to weigh in on the immigration order which adds more vetting to travelers from specific countries coming to the United States. While host Meghan McCain tried to bring balance to the table’s discussion, Whoopi shut her down, saying she didn’t need to present Trump supporters’ viewpoints because she didn’t know if anyone really voted for him in the first place.
Monday, The View hosts complained that conservatives calling last week's Time magazine cover, “fake news,” were missing the point. “It’s a symbol!” they decried. The cover, depicted the infamous photo of an immigrant child in tears, supposedly separated from her mother, an image that was used all over by the media to the deride Trump's cruelty. There was no question as to what message Time was trying to portray, depicting that child crying at Trump's feet on their cover with the words, “Welcome to America.” After news broke later that the girl was not actually separated from her mother, Time magazine and other media outlets still went out defending their use of the image, and the View continue the spin Monday.
On Tuesday's The View, the panel talked about Trump's border policy yet again, this time actually arguing in favor of more deportations, if you can believe it. Because, Obama! After host Sara Haines talked about how she can't believe anything Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says, giving examples of times she said inaccurate things, host Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin began by making the immigration debate about race.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the panel talked about the findings of the IG report released last week, revealing the anti-Trump bias in the FBI between agents Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and former Director James Comey. The hosts argued about whether the findings really were that important in influencing the election.
Comparing our country unfavorably to a totalitarian state seems to be a favorite pastime of Joy Behar and the women at The View. At reports that the Trump Administration was separating families at the border who tried to cross illegally, the hosts freaked out and claimed that this was a “human rights violation” akin to what Hitler and Kim Jong-un did to their people.
If there’s a way of turning a positive into a negative, liberals in the media will certainly find a way to do it. While Trump’s accomplishments hardly ever get noticed by the hosts of The View, the historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was so important, they had to acknowledge it on Tuesday’s show, but only to complain about it. To make matters worse, some of the hosts had completely opposite reactions with President Obama met with foreign dictators.
Fast-talking Georgetown professor and New York Times’ contributor Michael Eric Dyson was the guest on ABC’s The View, June 4, where he proceeded to “educate” the panel and viewers about the differences between bigots and racists, and how Republicans were seemingly both.
On Friday afternoon, MSNBC and their AM Joy host Joy Reid released separate statements days after more old blog posts surfaced from Reid’s now-defunct site ReidBlog. They ranged from encouraging readers to watch a 9/11 truther documentary to comparing Republican Senator John McCain (AZ) to the Virginia Tech shooter.
