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.
As the big three networks ignored 2020 Democrat candidate Senator Bernie Sanders arguing that terrorists deserved voting rights during a CNN town hall Monday night, the hosts of the View didn’t ignore it, bringing up the hot topic on Tuesday’s show. Sanders’ comments caused a fierce debate between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, leaving McCain horrified by her co-host’s defense of Sanders’ controversial comments.
The co-hosts of The View had a heated exchange Thursday over the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. When co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made the case that Assange deserved to be protected under the First Amendment, Meghan McCain took her to task, calling her argument, “straight propaganda.”
The View hosted two trans women military members on Wednesday in order to get their personal accounts on President Trump’s impending trans military “ban.” The segment obviously was sympathetic to the pair, felt the U.S. armed forces cater to their gender reassignment needs, but like most View segments, it turned into another attack on the president’s shocking “textbook definition of ignorance,” that amounts to “baseless discrimination.”
While lately co-host Meghan McCain agrees more than disagrees with her liberal peers at The View, Tuesday that changed when the Republican got into a shouting match with three of her co-hosts over a very familiar argument: the idea that the former administration was untainted by scandal.
After they spent last week defending former Vice President Joe Biden after the left came after him over Anita Hill, the hosts of The View opened the show Monday defending the potential 2020 Democrat contender yet again. Over the weekend, fellow Democrat Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately during a campaign event in 2014, an admission that caused the media to blow up all Monday, wavering on whether their #MeToo standards were still fair, when it affected people they liked.
As Joe Biden is nearing closer to announcing his 2020 run for president, the left’s demanding he apologize for how he “mishandled” Clarence Thomas’s accuser Anita Hill during Thomas's confirmation hearing in 1991. The View hosts disagreed over whether an apology was needed, but everyone could agree that this was all Trump’s fault.
After ex-Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti was arrested by the FBI for extortion and fraud, the hosts of the View reacted to it on Tuesday’s show. Co-host Joy Behar, who had previously lauded the celebrity lawyer for “saving the country,” admitted she was heartbroken over Avenatti’s fall from grace.
President Trump made a rare appearance at a church last Sunday. It's a safe bet the sermon was not based on Proverbs 15:1 — “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” If it was, it didn't appear to have much effect. Before and after church, the president engaged in a tweet storm that insulted several people, including the late Sen. John McCain.
The co-hosts of The View unanimously praised former DNC Chair Donna Brazile for joining Fox News Channel’s lineup as a regular contributor, on Tuesday’s show. They praised the decision as good for independents to get a liberal voice from the network, and Whoopi Goldberg even claimed that it was a sign Fox News would be returning to doing “news.”
The hosts of The View Friday were unanimously angry about ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s 47-month-long sentencing by a judge Thursday, calling it “immoral” “shameful” and wishing that he’d “rot in jail for the rest of his life.” Host Joy Behar even shared her own conspiracy theories that the judge was a Trump supporter and wondered if Mitch McConnell had something to do with it.
