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!"
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?)
On Thursday's The View, the liberal majority fulminated against Rudy Giuliani suggesting the Mueller probe has accomplished nothing and should wrap it up. Sunny Hostin lamented "He says this is a witch hunt, and it's caught a lot of witches and warlocks! There’s been 75 charges already, 22 people have been indicted so, the suggestion somehow that the Mueller investigation isn't finding anything is nonsense." So Mueller doesn't actually have to convict anyone of anything?
Tuesday’s edition of The View on ABC began with a bizarre spin. The announcer proclaimed: “One of the president's biggest foes, New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman, resigns over sexual abuse allegations. Is this a tipping point for Trump?” Isn’t this an embarrassment for the Democrats? How is everything “a tipping point for Trump”?
On Monday’s edition of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg noted the president touted a new Reuters-Ipsos poll that showed a growing approval rating for Trump among blacks. The View crew refused to acknowledge that was any evidence at all for improvement in the black community, even the record-low black unemployment rate of 6.6 percent, which was announced on Friday.
ABC's The View replaced Meghan McCain on Monday with CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter, who worked on Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in the last cycle. But Carpenter lined right up with Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg in defending Stormy Daniels for doing a comedy skit with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. She even proclaimed Daniels is taking on Trump better than the Democrats. "I hand it to her, and I hand it to Michael Avenatti! "
On Wednesday's edition of The View, co-host Meghan McCain took a little wind out of the liberal scandal sails by noting Trump was at an "all-time high" in several polls, like 45 percent in an NBC News/Survey Monkey poll. Liberal co-host Sunny Hostin then said she doesn't believe these polls anymore, since Hillary lost.
On Wednesday’s edition of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg was reading a rant off an index card. (This happens a lot on The View, so you can wonder who’s actually writing these lines. They often sound like a DNC Info-Pak.) Whoopi was outraged about the lack of experience in the Cabinet. No one on the set asked how she is qualified to be a pundit because she co-starred in Ghost and Sister Act. She's a high-school dropout.
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."
It seems as though some of the women on The View haven’t learned much. Co-host Sunny Hostin wandered into dangerous territory on Thursday as she lamented that no one has taken Trump “out back and kicked his little butt.”
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.
