The liberal bias on ABC’s daytime talk show The View is so over the top, it’s hard to single out just what qualifies as the worst examples of it that occurred this year.
The War on Christmas exists only in the president’s brain, according to The View. The View ladies recently discussed the “War on Christmas” – by going after President Donald Trump. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg introduced the Thursday segment by criticizing the president for calling on stores to say “Merry Christmas again” while his daughter, Ivanka, tweeted out “Happy Holidays.”
On Wednesday, ABC’s The View began the show with a much more enthusiastic opening than they typically do, as the hosts raved to the excited audience, that Democrats had won races in several key states during last night’s election. Suggesting the election results were a “rebellion” against Trump and his policies, the hosts gushed that America seemed to be heading back on track. “It makes you feel better about the country today,” host Joy Behar gushed.
Monday on ABC’s The View, things got heated when discussing the breaking news that morning about ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had been indicted by FBI special counsel Robert Mueller. After announcing the news, the audience cheered as the panel joked that they hoped President Trump would be next. As host Meghan McCain brought up Hillary Clinton’s funding of the Russian dossier, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar angrily shut her down, insisting that Democrats and Clinton had nothing to do with any Russia collusion.
Well you don’t see this “view” very often on a liberal network like ABC. Some hosts at The View admitted Tuesday that they were less than impressed by CNN’s new “facts first” ad campaign.In fact, they thought it was a joke. Host Sara Haines went even further, criticizing the network as a whole for giving in to “editorializing” and lowering their standards of straight news reporting since President Trump has taken office.
After spending the past few days obsessing over a Florida Democratic Congresswoman’s claims that President Trump “disrespected” a fallen soldier in a phone call to his widow,The View hosts were still not done blaming Trump for the allegations on Thursday’s show. But in today’s episode, the hosts added fuel to the fire, falsely accusing Trump of doing nothing for reforming the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, Scandal actress Kerry Washington appeared briefly to discuss the popular show’s final season. The show’s writers, along with Washington herself, have been outspoken critics of President Trump as well as advocates for abortion and Hillary Clinton. So the hosts were overjoyed with the opportunity to get their like-minded liberal guest to spout off on Trump and Republicans.
After Monday’s show was interrupted with live news coverage, ABC’s The View got its first chance to respond to Sunday night’s mass shooting on Tuesday’s program. As to be expected, the dialogue was high on emotions and low on facts, with the hosts reciting Democrat talking points, praising Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night rant, and urging viewers to vote Republicans out of office for not doing enough to stand up against “the gun lobby.”
Following the networks’ lead this morning, ABC’s The View expressed disgust at Alabama’s Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who won out the primary vote against Trump-backed Republican incumbent Luther Strange yesterday. Moore’s staunch conservative and Christian views triggered the show's hosts to rant and rave about how “scary” his viewpoints were, as host Sara Haines even worried that Moore would try to “legislate” Christianity.
As the left likes to say, never let a serious crisis go to waste! While discussing the absolute devastation in Puerto Rico from Hurricane Maria, some hosts at ABC’s The View wondered if the lack of media attention was a result of racist mainland Americans. Instead of putting the blame on the media for being late to alerting Americans to the serious crisis, The View’s Sunny Hostin instead suggested the skin color of Puerto Ricans was why Americans didn’t “care” about what they were going through.
Monday on ABC’s The View, the hosts continued their network’s obsessive coverage and hysterical handling of the NFL protests this weekend, that were in response to President Trump’s condemnation of the league allowing them to happen in the first place. The ladies at The View took a hard left position on the protests, as to be expected, praising Colin Kaepernick as “very American,” and bashing Trump as “scary” “crazy” and the “bum-in-chief.”
Anthony Scaramucci was the welcomed guest on Friday’s The View, where the short-lived former White House Communications Director happily dished insider details on all the staffers he didn’t like while working in the White House, to the liberal hosts’ delight. Virulently anti-Trump host Joy Behar led the discussion, and at every opportunity she tried to get Scaramucci to bash President Trump along with current and former White House staff.
