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.
In a sit-down interview with Axios on Ash Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence told investigative journalist Mike Allen that he was upset to hear about The View’s callous remarks about his faith on their show earlier this week.
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.
After Chief of Staff General John Kelly told reporters Tuesday that the discrepancy between the number of registered DACA recipients and those eligible for the program was probably due to people being too lazy or too fearful to apply for the program, the media went into a tailspin of fury over the adviser’s blunt comments.
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.
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.
For a show that likes to question President Trump’s sanity on a daily basis, the hosts at ABC’s The View sure like to entertain wacky conspiracy theories a lot. The day after the press obsessively questioned the presidential physician’s report that Trump was in excellent health, the talk show hosts couldn’t believe it either, wondering if it was a vast right-wing conspiracy to protect the president.
Thursday on ABC’s The View, hosts Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar sparred with host Meghan McCain and guest host, actress and singer Keke Palmer, over the trustworthiness of the media. Behar and Hostin complained that no one trusted the media anymore, when they were only trying to give “the truth” and “the facts.”
In a hostile, lengthy exchange on ABC’s The View Friday, host Meghan McCain admitted frustration at being the sole Republican host on the show. Trying to explain to host Joy Behar that Trump supporters “don’t care” about the Michael Wolff book, or other controversies the media hypes about the White House, McCain gushed, “I have never felt more conservative and more defensive of the middle of the country than I have before I started working on this show.”
