This week, NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2018. Today, it’s a look at the media’s Trump Derangement Syndrome as we present the most over-the-top attacks on President Donald Trump. When he wasn’t being compared to tyrants like Benito Mussolini, he was being branded a traitor who sold out America to Vladimir Putin. And of course he was repeatedly tarred as a hateful racist.
Joy Behar was furious. Furious! Why? It seems that following the death of President George H. W. Bush, View co-host Joy Behar wanted to say something nice about the late president, and settled on a comment about his signing of an amendment to the Clean Air Act in 1990. Said she, as reported here in on NewsBusters:
Joy Behar frequently puts her ignorance on display but on Wednesday's The View, she went above and beyond her usual lack of knowledge. In discussing the midterm elections with Matthew Dowd, Behar wore her constitutional scholar mantle to observe that the Democrats lost the Senate races in the midterms the day before due to gerrymandering.
The female co-hosts of ABC’s The View are certainly no strangers to controversy, but on Thursday, the panelists turned their attention from mostly liberal topics to criticizing Twitter for allowing numerous harsh posts to remain on the social network website. The discussion took a deeply personal tone when conservative co-host Meghan McCain described what she went through when a doctored photo invaded her grief after her father -- Arizona Senator John McCain -- passed away in late August.
View co-host Meghan McCain on Tuesday called out the hypocrisy of her liberal co-host Joy Behar. Discussing Brett Kavanaugh and sexual abuse claims against powerful politicians, McCain reminded, “Joy has also said that Al Franken should come back [to the Senate]. She has publicly on the show.”
During the third installment of the Fox News Channel's Ben Shapiro Election Special, the eponymous host called out celebrities in Hollywood and the media for their hypocrisy over showing outrage about Judge Kavanaugh’s “supposed sexual brutality” but looking the other way when members of their own tribe committed similar atrocities. According to Shapiro, “the city that brought us the casting couch might not be the best source for moral guidance in politics.”
During Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, the eponymous host lamented the fact that the ABC program The View has “recently warped from a breezy daytime show into a font of deranged propaganda.” Carlson had previously played a clip of View co-host Whoopi Goldberg saying that Donald Trump Jr. should only fear for his son in the wake of the Kavanaugh mass hysteria if he thinks his son “has these tendencies,” adding “If your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you.”
The women of The View on Monday offered their latest conviction of Brett Kavanaugh, declaring him “guilty” and suggesting that impeachment is next, should the judge be confirmed to the Supreme Court. Last week, co-host Joy Behar proclaimed Kavanaugh “probably guilty.” On Monday, she’s dropped the “probably.”
The partisan hypocrisy of The View's co-hosts apparently knows no bounds. On Wednesday, Joy Behar deemed Brett Kavanaugh “probably guilty” of the sexual assault accusation made by Christine Blasey Ford. If that wasn’t enough, she sneered that the judge must be a “coward” if he doesn’t take a lie detector test.
The co-hosts of The View on Monday hammered Supreme nominee Brett Kavanaugh and took very seriously the sexual assault claims against the conservative. Co-host Joy Behar deemed them “credible” and called for the nomination to be delayed. On a day like this, it’s important to remember that these women are hypocrites who have a double standard when it comes to sex accusations. If it’s a liberal politician like Bill Clinton or Hollywood director Roman Polanski, they don’t seem to care.
Media personalities and journalists decry over-the-top comments from Donald Trump, but they tolerate them from liberals like director Michael Moore. Moore appeared on The View, Friday and dramatically warned that the United States might not make it to 2020. He declared Trump the “last president” of the United States. ABC donated 16 minutes and 5 seconds to the filmmaker.
Liberal View co-host Joy Behar stepped in it again on Wednesday. Ranting about Donald Trump, she lamented that “God forbid” the “sociopath” might “live another 20 years.” The comment was cringe-worthy enough that Behar backtracked after a commercial break, exclaiming, “I didn’t mean that, what I said.”
