The hottest of “Hot Topics” on The View on Thursday was the NFL’s new policy to stop players from kneeling on the field during the playing of the national anthem. Whoopi Goldberg introduced a clip of President Trump on Fox News saying it was “the right thing.” Sunny Hostin went on and on in 46-second rant about how American terrorizes black men, but when Meghan McCain started to speak, she quickly interrupted. McCain yelled: "I'm still talking!"
Comedian Michelle Wolf from The Daily Show responded "I don't care" when asked by Meghan McCain on The View on Wednesday if her "comedy" appearance at the White House Correspondents Association on April 28 caused the reporters' organization to stop hiring a comedian for their annual dinner.The rest of the View crew surrounded Wolf with encouragement and support, and McCain was smiling through the question.
On Tuesday’s edition of The View, the liberals were upset that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would tweet about a “war against women in the Trump administration.” Joy Behar tried to turn that into a Planned Parenthood argument, and Meghan McCain lost patience with that: “The idea that Planned Parenthood is the number one women’s issue in America, all women...it’s false and I’m sick of this!”
On Thursday's The View, the liberal majority fulminated against Rudy Giuliani suggesting the Mueller probe has accomplished nothing and should wrap it up. Sunny Hostin lamented "He says this is a witch hunt, and it's caught a lot of witches and warlocks! There’s been 75 charges already, 22 people have been indicted so, the suggestion somehow that the Mueller investigation isn't finding anything is nonsense." So Mueller doesn't actually have to convict anyone of anything?
Fox News anchor Bret Baier appeared on ABC's The View on Thursday to promote his new book Three Days in Moscow about Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. But the ABC crew peppered him with questions about their favorite topic -- the White House aide who insulted John McCain -- and whether Fox News is the "administration's mouthpiece," since it's reported Sean Hannity talks to the president nightly after his show. Baier replied "There may be opinion shows that have a direct relationship with the president, and Sean is not calling me and giving me a download of the call."
The View was engaged in Hot Topic Recycling on Monday. Putting the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem or denuclearization of North Korea were ignored in favor of more piling-on about a leaked insult of Sen. John McCain, which was already addressed on Friday’s show. Meghan McCain surely caused a few jaws to drop by saying if you don’t have role models in politics, well, “You got some on The View, with all of us!” Because The View is America’s center of civil and rational discourse? Joy Behar blew that up within seconds.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared to plug his novel The Hellfire Club on ABC's The View on Wednesday. Mostly, the View wanted him to pronounce on the Trump tweet of the day on the "fake news" (and the MRC study showing 91 percent of the evening-news coverage of Trump was negative from January to April).
Tuesday’s edition of The View on ABC began with a bizarre spin. The announcer proclaimed: “One of the president's biggest foes, New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman, resigns over sexual abuse allegations. Is this a tipping point for Trump?” Isn’t this an embarrassment for the Democrats? How is everything “a tipping point for Trump”?
On Monday’s edition of The View, co-host Whoopi Goldberg noted the president touted a new Reuters-Ipsos poll that showed a growing approval rating for Trump among blacks. The View crew refused to acknowledge that was any evidence at all for improvement in the black community, even the record-low black unemployment rate of 6.6 percent, which was announced on Friday.
ABC's The View replaced Meghan McCain on Monday with CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter, who worked on Ted Cruz's presidential campaign in the last cycle. But Carpenter lined right up with Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg in defending Stormy Daniels for doing a comedy skit with Alec Baldwin's Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live. She even proclaimed Daniels is taking on Trump better than the Democrats. "I hand it to her, and I hand it to Michael Avenatti! "
On Wednesday's edition of The View, co-host Meghan McCain took a little wind out of the liberal scandal sails by noting Trump was at an "all-time high" in several polls, like 45 percent in an NBC News/Survey Monkey poll. Liberal co-host Sunny Hostin then said she doesn't believe these polls anymore, since Hillary lost.
The ladies of ABC's The View unanimously defended liberal comedian Michelle Wolf's White House Correspondents Dinner routine on Monday. Whoopi Goldberg said there was a "brutal backlash" and calls for an end to the dinner. Joy Behar said "We were laughing our heads off here." Sunny Hostin attended the dinner with her old CNN pals. "DonLemon and I cackled during a lot of it."
