For two days in a row, The View has given Democrats in Congress a platform to bash President Trump over Iran and impeachment. Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was the satellite guest and today it was Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s turn to take softball questions from the liberal hosts.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar told Democrat Adam hiff that President Trump was to blame for the deaths of 176 people who died after Iran shot down their plane last week. The co-hosts made the vile claim on Monday’s show during a Skype interview with the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Now that we’ve actually entered the year of the 2020 presidential election, the contest will undoubtedly become more contentious all the way through Tuesday, November 3. One sign of the ever-growing debate took place on Monday, when Judy Sheindlin – the star of the successful syndicated Judge Judy television program -- appeared on ABC’s The View show and discussed her role in a new advertisement endorsing Democratic billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The hosts of ABC’s The View aren’t exactly known for their even-handed or rational political analysis. While each show is predictably filled with meltdowns over President Trump, sometimes a co-host will say something so bizarre it defies understanding. Here’s our top picks for wackiest analysis from the political talk show, this year:
Ardently anti-Trump actor Robert De Niro felt right at home on The View set Monday, as the liberal co-hosts reveled in his hatred for the President. Even as he was there to promote his newest films, the hosts were more interested in hearing his bizarre takes on President Trump and his children.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain had a nasty fight on Monday’s show when the Republican co-host accused her liberal co-hosts of not wanting to hear a conservative perspective, “ever.” The argument started as the hosts were hyperventilating that Republicans were not “fulfilling their oath” to impeach President Trump and McCain tried to rein in her co-hosts’ emotional reactions back to reality.
The hosts of The View were all over the map on Monday’s show while discussing the latest strong jobs report that was released Friday. Unable to face facts, the hosts tried to argue the economy was actually a negative for Trump. The liberal hosts suddenly pretended to care about the rising deficit, while at the same time, griping that more money wasn't being put into food stamps. Co-host Joy Behar even suggested that half the country supported impeaching Trump because the economy wasn't benefiting them.
If you’re looking for insightful political analysis, The View might be the most obvious show to skip. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg proposed her theory that Republicans and Trump’s base would abandon Republicans in Congress if they continued to oppose impeaching President Trump. Yes, you read that correctly. According to Whoopi, Republican voters really wanted to “keep the country together” by joining the Democrats in ousting President Trump.
Predictably, the liberal View hosts weren’t embarrassed by Democrat witness Pamela Karlan’s smug, rage-filled performance during Wednesday’s impeachment inquiry hearing. Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and guest host Bari Weiss even defended the Stanford professor attacking the President's teenage son, before ripping into Republicans as hypocrites who don't care about the migrant children at the border.
On Wednesday’s The View, the frequently uncivil hosts spent a short segment reminiscing over more civil times in the country. While Whoopi Goldberg wondered why the country couldn’t return to having polite disagreements at the dinner table this Thanksgiving, her co-hosts suggested it wasn’t our fault; it was President Trump’s.
There’s no question guests Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle completely “triggered” the hosts of The View Thursday, as the president’s son was there, ironically to promote his book of the same title. The food fight continued for nearly thirty minutes, finally culminating with Trump shocking hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg by calling out their own controversies.
Well this was definitely a show for the record books. Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle sat down at the “hot topics” table on The View Thursday for an explosive discussion. Despite the hosts’ hostile and abusive behavior towards their guests, Trump and Guilfoyle were still able to land some good points about the media’s bias towards President Trump. Trump even called out the View’s network, ABC, for its part in covering up Jeffrey Epstein’s connection to Bill Clinton, during the 2016 election.
