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.
As to be expected, the liberal hosts at ABC’s The View were less than thrilled by President Trump’s State of the Union last night. Since co-host Joy Behar was out sick, host Sunny Hostin took the mantle giving the hysterical anti-Trump take, decrying the “very offensive” speech that “demonized immigrants,” on the show’s January 31 episode.
The View’s “Republican” co-hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro had a spitfire exchange over who was to blame for the government shutdown during the January 22 show. After Navarro continued to attack the GOP’s response to the shutdown, McCain called her out as a hypocrite for still identifying as a Republican, yet defending Democrats at every chance she was given.
After doubting the truthfulness of the White House doctor, who gave President Trump a clean bill of health yesterday, the hosts at The View skyped in Democrat Senator Dick Durbin on their show January 17, to ask him about Trump’s infamous “s***hole” comment and whether or not the DACA deal was going to happen.
In November 2015, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar at The View rudely shut down then-presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, insisting that she was lying when she stated that Planned Parenthood had admitted to harvesting baby parts from aborted fetuses. On Friday, Orange County's district attorney announced a $7.8 million settlement with two California companies accused of "selling fetal-derived cells and tissues" obtained from fetal body parts acquired from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. When will ABC demand that Whoopi and Joy apologize?
September 13 on ABC’s The View, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made her first talk show appearance since the election ten months ago, to promote her recently released memoir, What Happened. She sat at the table for over 40 minutes, fielding mostly friendly questions from the hosts. Host Joy Behar even revealed when Clinton lost the election, she felt like a friend had died and “went into mourning.”
Wednesday on The View, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, spent the entire last half of the show fielding questions about Trump from the liberal hosts. But The View hosts never got their “gotcha” moment, as the pair always had a rebuttal for the panel’s heavily loaded questions. The White House Press Secretary even called out the media for using reports to “editorialize” rather than give the American people“facts,” and mocked the media’s persistence at harping on certain issues.
After arguing students should be denied college admission based off of their race, the women at The View went on to argue students should be denied their Second Amendment rights. The rants were in response to a 2016 law passed in Texas that allows licensed gun owning students to conceal carry on campus. The law went into effect on community college campuses this week in the state. While libertarian host Jedediah Bila delivered a reasoned and fact-based argument in favor of the law, the rest of the panel shut her down and spewed nonsense in order to further their gun control agenda.
Wednesday on The View, the panel opened the conversation with shock and dismay at news that the Justice Department was investigating universities’ affirmative action policies and if they were unfair to white students. The table decried the already “unfair playing field” repeatedly, even bringing up slavery as a reason why we still need affirmative action to this day.
Tuesday on ABC's The View, the sole self-admitted pro-life Democrat on the panel, Sunny Hostin, urged her party to reclaim the moral party status from Republicans. But instead of being encouraged by reports that said Democrats were now opening their doors to pro-life candidates, Hostin claimed abortion shouldn’t be the leading moral issue for Christians in her party. Instead, she claimed Jesus was already on the Democrats side, since caring for the earth, the poor and refugees were his primary teachings.
Tuesday on ABC’s The View, the panel talked with a self-identified “polyamorous” bisexual actor Nico Tortorella and a group of “sexually fluid” teens, to help educate them about the broad and confusing world of their community. While the panel called on the media to give more positive representations of “sexually fluid” people, the hosts themselves admitted they didn’t even understand what the terms meant. In an unintentionally comical segment, the panel grew visibly more confused and frustrated while scrambling to understand the rules and norms of their more “sexually progressive” young guests.
