Wednesday on ABC’s The View, the largely liberal panel mocked the idea that officials appointed by President Obama, still working in the federal government, could have an agenda against President Trump.
The hosts at The View are not strangers to comparing President Trump to dictators and terrorists. They spent several shows in 2016 and 2017 comparing the Republican agenda to terrorism, and claiming that Trump was turning America into the Taliban.
The View’s reaction to the breaking news Friday that Michael Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI was just about what you would expect from the super partisan show.
At a Navajo veterans’ ceremony over the weekend, President Trump made a brief joke at Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren’s expense that left the media practically foaming at the mouth.
While discussing the Roy Moore allegations on Monday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s chief political analyst, faux Republican, and nasty politico Matthew Dowd ironically informed co-host and former Bill Clinton official George Stephanopoulos that, in sexual misconduct incidents, “the default position ought to be believe the women.”
On Wednesday, ABC’s The View began the show with a much more enthusiastic opening than they typically do, as the hosts raved to the excited audience, that Democrats had won races in several key states during last night’s election. Suggesting the election results were a “rebellion” against Trump and his policies, the hosts gushed that America seemed to be heading back on track. “It makes you feel better about the country today,” host Joy Behar gushed.
Giddy over Democratic wins in state and local elections across the country, on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, political pundits Matthew Dowd and Meghan McCain were eager to cheer the results as “rejection” of President Trump and a victory for “diversity and inclusion.”
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, former DNC Interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile was in the hot seat to answer questions about the recent allegations she made in her new book about the 2016 election. The liberal hosts were able to grill Brazile on claims she made in the memoir that conservative media seized on, because they put Democrats and the Clinton campaign in a negative light. But as soon as host Meghan McCain tried to ask Brazile about the DNC paying for the infamous Russian dossier, hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin interrupted to answer the question themselves, and followed up with questions trying to contest the conservative host’s claims.
Keeping up their trend of inviting never-Trump Republican politicians on the show, the liberal hosts at ABC’s The View welcomed Arizona Senator Jeff Flake with open arms, on Monday’s show. After he used the Senate floor two weeks ago to lambast President Trump while announcing his retirement, the Arizona senator was ready to continue his media friendly tour, and The View was only happy to give it to him.
GQ host and former MSNBC crazy Keith Olbermann joined the ladies of ABC’s The View on Friday and he came locked and loaded with head-shaking statements, chiefly his belief that President Trump has been worse for America than Osama bin Laden. In addition, Olbermann made the stark admission that he owes George W. Bush and John McCain apologies for trashing them and wishes Bush could have had a third term as President instead of Trump being in the White House now.
Monday on ABC’s The View, things got heated when discussing the breaking news that morning about ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had been indicted by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller. After announcing the news, the audience cheered as the panel joked that they hoped President Trump would be next. As host Meghan McCain brought up Hillary Clinton’s funding of the Russian dossier, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar angrily shut her down, insisting that Democrats and Clinton had nothing to do with any Russia collusion.
Thursday on The View, the hosts misconstrued a brief statement President Trump made to a White House reporter the day before, defending his intelligence, in response to a hostile question. The hosts at The View mocked Trump’s response, and stupidly claimed that he was “turning on his base” by defending his intelligence to the press.
