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.
Monday at The View, the hosts heaped praise on 2020 Democrat candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg for being one of the few Democrats who agreed to do a town hall on Fox News, this past Sunday. Co-host Joy Behar loved that Buttigieg attacked the right-leaning network at one point, and the other hosts commended the Democrat for trying to reach the other side.
As New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio announced overnight he was joining the crowded Democrat 2020 field, the hosts of The View were decidedly split on their opinion of De Blasio. Announcing the topic, co-host Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t stop laughing at the apparent absurdity of the unpopular De Blasio running for President, while her liberal co-hosts earnestly tried to make the case that he his radical policies had been good for New York.
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
Monday at The View, the hosts opened by fretting about access to abortion, after Georgia was the latest state to pass a bill which bans abortions after a woman is six weeks pregnant and a fetal heartbeat can be detected.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was on The View Monday where he was mostly grilled from the left on Trump’s relationship with Russia, immigration policies, and his rhetoric. Only one conservative question was allowed for the very end, but regardless, the former Navy SEAL held his own against the very hostile hosts.
The View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin practically put their hands over their ears after Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain referenced scandals that happened under Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, during a conversation on Bill Barr’s testimony yesterday. Whoopi was so desperate to avoid comparisons to the previous administration that she even fabricated something that never happened just to defend the Obama administration.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s cheerleading squad, also known as the ladies of The View, praised the South Bend Mayor for admitting he has white privilege during an appearance on The Daily Show. Behar also contended that even poor “white guys” still have white privilege while the rest of the panel gushed over “Mayor Pete,” whom they described as an “antithesis” to President Trump.
The hosts of ABC’s The View predictably went nuts Wednesday following Bill Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While tearing into Barr for allegedly “lying,” the hosts had sudden concern for ethics at the DOJ, and eagerly hoped the Attorney General would go to prison for “obstructing justice” and trying to conduct a “coup.”
As the big three networks ignored 2020 Democrat candidate Senator Bernie Sanders arguing that terrorists deserved voting rights during a CNN town hall Monday night, the hosts of the View didn’t ignore it, bringing up the hot topic on Tuesday’s show. Sanders’ comments caused a fierce debate between co-hosts Meghan McCain and Whoopi Goldberg, leaving McCain horrified by her co-host’s defense of Sanders’ controversial comments.
Wednesday, ABC’s The View devoted an entire show to expectant host Abby Huntsman, celebrating her pregnancy with a baby shower and packed the audience with pregnant women. The irony of the predominantly liberal show celebrating babies is quite ironic considering how the hosts have celebrated a “woman’s right to choose” to kill her baby many times before on the show.
After they spent last week defending former Vice President Joe Biden after the left came after him over Anita Hill, the hosts of The View opened the show Monday defending the potential 2020 Democrat contender yet again. Over the weekend, fellow Democrat Lucy Flores, a former Nevada assemblywoman accused Biden of touching and kissing her inappropriately during a campaign event in 2014, an admission that caused the media to blow up all Monday, wavering on whether their #MeToo standards were still fair, when it affected people they liked.
