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.
The hottest of “Hot Topics” on The View on Thursday was the NFL’s new policy to stop players from kneeling on the field during the playing of the national anthem. Whoopi Goldberg introduced a clip of President Trump on Fox News saying it was “the right thing.” Sunny Hostin went on and on in 46-second rant about how American terrorizes black men, but when Meghan McCain started to speak, she quickly interrupted. McCain yelled: "I'm still talking!"
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.
