The liberals on The View geared up to defend Michelle Wolf’s comedy routine for a second day, and Meghan McCain returned to underline how badly conservatives distrust the media elites. Whoopi Goldberg claimed “journalists are an endangered species.” But Joy Behar really took the cake by insisting that no panelist on The View ever attacked Trump voters, just Trump. That’s a Pants-on-Fire lie.
Joy Behar took a nasty shot at Melania Trump on Thursday’s The View and token conservative Meghan McCain fired back, deriding her liberal co-host as “so mean.” The women were discussing the latest on Stormy Daniels. Behar mocked: “Today is Melania's birthday. Happy birthday, Melania.”
On ABC’s The View on Monday, they brought up Kellyanne Conway’s Sunday pushback at CNN’s Dana Bash when she wrapped up the interview by bringing up tweets by Conway’s lawyer husband, George Conway. Bash asked “I just ask you one question that a lot of people are asking me, probably you too. And that is, what is up with your husband's tweets?” Conway shot back that Bash wouldn’t ask this question to a man. Sunny Hostin who used to work at CNN, fiercely defended Bash by saying Conway was "really, really slimy" to question the question.
Just as ABC laid out the red carpet for James Comey on Sunday night, ABC’s “The View” laid out the red carpet for porn star Stormy Daniels on Tuesday, the only “live” interview...even if it mostly sounded like a warmed-over rehash of her 60 Minutes interview. Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti were awarded almost 27 minutes of air time. The big difference was Meghan McCain, who suggested – “no disrespect” – Daniels is offering a “publicity stunt,” making a lot of money on this Trump-bashing campaign:
View co-host Meghan McCain is making a habit of upending the liberal narrative on the ABC program. On Friday, she mocked the idea that Jim Comey is a pious, non-ideological truth teller, saying that the “highly political” ex-FBI Director just wants to be a View co-host.
Token conservative View co-host Meghan McCain on Thursday unloaded on the liberal Joy Behar when she compared Donald Trump to thug dictators like Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin. It all started when Behar sneered, “We have gotten to the point in this world now where we have to rely on the sanity of Kim Jong-un and Putin over the President of the United States. That's where we're at.”
On Monday's edition of The View on ABC, they talked about the liberal "March for Our Lives" protest against the gun-rights movement. Co-host Meghan McCain wonder if the wild language of the child activists like David Hogg calling Republicans "sick f---ers" was counterproductive, and three of her liberal counterparts rushed to Hogg's defense. Whoopi Goldberg argued "whether they're cussing you out, or speaking beautifully, doesn't matter."
On Wednesday’s The View, the ABC crew assaulted the irony of Melania Trump taking up the cause of cyber-bullying, when President Trump’s tweets are routinely described as bullying. "I don't think she's the right messenger for cyber-bullying because she can't seem to control it in her own home," Sunny Hostin said. "She's the wrong messenger for cyber-bullying but she’s the wrong messenger for everything almost because of his behavior."
ABC’s The View started off the week with a largely cozy interview with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a potential 2020 challenger to President Trump. Meghan McCain pressed Booker on the fact that Robert Mueller’s team of investigators is stuffed with registered Democrats and Hillary Clinton donors. Booker kept changing the subject to Trump’s manners.
March 15 on ABC’s The View, the table briefly discussed the potential firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who is under fire from the Justice Department for allowing FBI officials to talk to reporters about sensitive information regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation, and then going on to mislead Justice Department investigators in their review of this behavior.
On the Wednesday edition of the table’s “Hot Topics,” The View's hosts opened the show by having a heated argument over the nationwide walkouts happening in schools everywhere today, in protest of the Parkland school shooting. Lone conservative host Meghan McCain let the others lead the conversation for several minutes, saying she respected the students’ right to protest, before adding that she didn’t like how these protests and pro-gun people were being covered by the media.
ABC’s The View started off their show, March 8, by blasting White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as an incompetent liar, and eagerly hoping the Stormy Daniels lawsuit would produce physical evidence to impeach President Trump.
