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.
ABC’s The View started off their show, March 8, by blasting White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as an incompetent liar, and eagerly hoping the Stormy Daniels lawsuit would produce physical evidence to impeach President Trump.
As she’s done before on The View, host Meghan McCain gave a strong pro-life argument from the table of liberals, amidst their cheerleading for feminism on the March 8 show, which fell on International Women’s Day. McCain argued with fellow host Joy Behar that feminism wasn’t as straightforward as the dictionary definition. “[Does feminism include] the rights of unborn women as well?” McCain asked upfront.
As they’ve done before, the women at The View used the latest controversy over President Trump as a way to complain that President Obama had it worse. As news broke that porn star Stormy Daniels was back in the news again, suing President Trump, the View hosts whined that this story was just more proof of how Trump got away with everything, yet Obama faced unfair scrutiny.
By the end of the day on March 5, former Donald Trump campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, had made quite a few rounds of interviews by the networks even though it seemed something was not quite right with the guy either mentally or medically. It finally seemed so exploitative that even the crew of The View felt the nets were being overly exploitive. Perhaps one of those rare times that The View seemed sympathetic towards someone who was in any way connected with the Trump campaign or administration.
View co-host Whoopi Goldberg absurdly wondered if the Parkland high school shooting was the long-awaited “call” that would get teens involved in political activism. On ABC’s February 20 show, the hosts praised the students for “responding to a threat,” comparing the teens progressive activism to the Vietnam War, Civil Rights and women’s suffrage movements.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, the whole table addressed host Joy Behar’s mockery of Mike Pence’s Christian faith on Tuesday’s show that caused an uproar. Even though the rest of the table, with the exception of Meghan McCain and to some extent Whoopi Goldberg, also made vile comments, ABC only brought up Behar’s comments as controversial.
Tuesday on The View, the liberal hosts displayed a sudden respect for fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault, after the controversial figure took her fame to reality television to spread malicious gossip about the Trump White House. With the exception of Meghan McCain, the hosts touted Omarosa’s supposed “leaks” about Vice President Mike Pence’s “scary” Christianity on CBS’s Celebrity Big Brother this week, as gospel-truth.
Monday on ABC’s The View, liberal hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar called Vice President Mike Pence a hypocrite for sitting down while North Korean athletes marched into the stadium at the Olympic Games this weekend. Whoopi complained that Pence didn’t not show North Korea their due “respect,” while Hostin compared Pence’s actions to the NFL anthem protests.
On Thursday's The View show, during a discussion of reports that gay Olympic skater Adam Rippon had turned down the opportunity to meet with Vice President Mike Pence because of his views on gay rights, co-host Whoopi Goldberg at one point defended the decision by suggesting that meeting with Pence would be like a Jew having a meeting with a Nazi.
