Friday at the Hot Topics table, the hosts of the View discussed President Trump’s rally Thursday where he called out the writer of the anonymous New York Times op-ed, as “treasonous.” The liberal hosts were aghast at Trump’s response, saying he was the real villain of this story. The panel compared Trump to former President Nixon and Whoopi even claimed that it was now “dangerous” for anyone to criticize Trump.
Thursday the hosts of ABC’s The View opened the show by gushing about the anonymous op-ed printed in The New York Times September 5, which was supposedly written by a senior member of the administration that’s part of the “resistance” against Trump. Most of the panel only had positive things to say about the article, with co-host Sunny Hostin even characterizing the anonymous writer as a hero who was “saving” America from Trump.
On Tuesday's CBS This Morning, as the regular team of hosts returned from the Labor Day holiday, the group caught up with NBC's Today show in fretting over a pastor at Aretha Franklin's funeral who delivered a conservative message, but they still did not mention the controversy around Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan being allowed to share a stage with former President Bill Clinton and other prominent Democrats. In fact, former Attorney General and possible presidential candidate Eric Holder even posed for a photograph with the ardently anti-Semitic religious figure.
Whoopi Goldberg led a celebrity wave of tributes to Sen. John McCain this weekend. Actors, who spend most of their online efforts slamming conservatives, took a pause to mourn McCain’s passing at the age of 81. Goldberg’s tribute was clear, concise and heartfelt.
If there’s one thing the media doesn’t seem to specialize in, it’s originality. They all read from the same script. On five different programs broadcast Monday and Tuesday on three different networks, the media went off the rails; repeatedly calling President Trump a dictator and in some cases comparing him to Turkish Dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan. At least they didn’t compare him to Hitler.
CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.”
The fallout happened after Pirro answered host Sara Haines question as to why she called her book, “Liars, Leakers and Liberals, The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy”. Saying she wasn’t “an ideologue,” she slammed the Mueller investigation as a “fake investigation based on a fake document” (the unsubstantiated Trump-Russia dossier.) That upset host Sunny Hostin who shot back, “It was not only based on that and you know that.” CNN commentator Ana Navarro, filling in for Joy Behar, used Pirro’s initial comment to try to pin her into a corner on President Trump:
The hosts of ABC's The View started off Tuesday show discussing what they thought about President Trump's recent Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. Surprisingly Joy Behar was really the only one to come out swinging against Trump's nominee.
From President Donald Trump’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, there was a lot for lefties in the media and Hollywood to lose their heads over this month. Anchors and reporters depicted the “despot” Trump and those who voted for him as Nazis that were making the Statue of Liberty weep. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
Thursday’s The View started off with an astounding nearly 10-minute-long meltdown over Justice Kennedy’s retirement from the Supreme Court, and the second chance for President Trump to appoint a judge for the highest court of the land, during his first two years in office. Liberal Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were the most upset about the news with Whoopi angrily attacking host Meghan McCain, Republicans and Christians for potentially challenging Roe v Wade.
Just under an hour after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the third iteration of President Trump’s “travel ban,” the liberal ladies of ABC’s The View had the chance to weigh in on the immigration order which adds more vetting to travelers from specific countries coming to the United States. While host Meghan McCain tried to bring balance to the table’s discussion, Whoopi shut her down, saying she didn’t need to present Trump supporters’ viewpoints because she didn’t know if anyone really voted for him in the first place.
Monday, The View hosts complained that conservatives calling last week's Time magazine cover, “fake news,” were missing the point. “It’s a symbol!” they decried. The cover, depicted the infamous photo of an immigrant child in tears, supposedly separated from her mother, an image that was used all over by the media to the deride Trump's cruelty. There was no question as to what message Time was trying to portray, depicting that child crying at Trump's feet on their cover with the words, “Welcome to America.” After news broke later that the girl was not actually separated from her mother, Time magazine and other media outlets still went out defending their use of the image, and the View continue the spin Monday.
