According to reports from TVLine, Tv Guide and The Daily Beast, lone, right-leaning host of The View, Meghan McCain might not return to the talk show when the new season begins this September. Those “close to McCain” reportedly told the media that she may quit because she felt “like a caged animal” after two years on the show getting into constant charged confrontations with her liberal co-hosts, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi Goldberg.
Former Republican Governor of New Jersey and ABC News contributor Chris Christie appeared on The View Friday to analyze last night’s Democratic debate. However, the liberal hosts were more interested in attacking him for working for the Trump administration. The segment ended in a total meltdown from each of the hosts, ranting and raving over how awful the president is.
Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar are no strangers to hyperbole and dramatics on The View. After Behar said Trump was on his way to exterminating illegal immigrants last week, Whoopi claimed that Trump was on his way to criminalizing and exterminating gay people on Wednesday’s show.
If Donald Trump announced today that he’s going to find a cure for cancer tomorrow, liberals would whine and complain that a lot of people with medical careers would unfairly be put out of work. But when Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made such an outlandish claim, the women on ABC’s The View program applauded the promise even though co-host Joy Behar warned that accomplishing such a task will be “much more difficult” if the liberals’ top priority of climate change has not been dealt with first.
Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney was on The View Thursday, joining the crowd of Democrat presidential candidates who have come on the show. Despite espousing many typical liberal, big government policies, he framed himself as a centrist Democrat, noting areas where his party was being extreme, fiscally. While Sunny Hostin pressed the Democrat from the left at every turn, even Joy Behar admitted she wasn’t for one of the party’s more radical bills.
The hosts at The View blasted President Trump Wednesday, for calling Democrat candidate Joe Biden “slow” and claiming he didn’t have the fortitude to make it on the campaign trail. That led to an entire segment of the hosts ragging on Trump for spreading "health conspiracy theories," which is too rich, coming from the same people who spread their own health conspiracy theories about Trump all the time.
The hosts were divided on The View Tuesday over Democrats dragging out John Dean to testify over the Mueller report Monday, where he compared President Trump to Richard Nixon. The stunt was praised by View hosts Sunny Hostin and fill-in host Deborah Roberts as historically necessary, but Meghan McCain called out the disgraced, former White House counsel for his partisanship and history of hackery.
The hosts of ABC’s The View struggled on Monday’s show, between praising Joe Biden for flip-flopping on the Hyde Amendment last week, to expressing frustration that he wasn’t with the radical left to begin with. After pressure from the left, the former Vice President and current 2020 candidate came out this past week to say he now was against the amendment, which bans federal funding for abortion, after being in favor of it for the past forty years. Meghan McCain was the only critic of Biden’s flip- flopping.
2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received an enthusiastic welcome from the hosts of ABC’s The View Thursday, and packed the audience with her liberal fans. The lengthy segment felt more like a political rally, as the audience loudly cheered every answer she gave to the hosts about her support for far-left issues like abortion and student loan-debt “forgiveness.”
The New York Times Magazine has posted its Sunday cover story on ABC's The View, touted as "The Most Important Political TV Show in America." Behar lamented that Hillary Clinton made a big mistake not coming on the show more than once in 2016 so she could show she was a "gregarious grandma." ABC wanted to help her win, and she didn't cooperate!
Tuesday The View co-hosts melted down over former White House counsel Don Mcgahn defying a Democrat subpoena to testify over the Mueller investigation. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin compared President Trump to Richard Nixon, fuming that he should be impeached, while Whoopi Goldberg worried that Trump and his supporters wanted to bring back segregation and take away voting rights from blacks.
On his weekly HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a shot at Meghan McCain, now the outspoken conservative on ABC's The View. It came as Oliver discussed the Eurovision song contest, which included a kooky anti-capitalist sado-masochist rock band from Iceland called Hatari, and one member (shown in bondage gear) was the son of Iceland's ambassador to England. Oliver joked: "You may be thinking that’s the most embarrassing child of a prominent political figure you’ve ever seen, but let me remind you of the continued existence of Meghan McCain!"
