During Monday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on Hillary Clinton’s interview on CBS Sunday Morning, where she said that her husband should not have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky affair, dismissing the idea of the affair as an “abuse of power” and asking “where’s the investigation of the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made?” Believe it or not, co-host Joy Behar, wearing a shirt with the word “Resist” displayed in capital letters, decided to make a comment that she knew would not impress the ultra-liberal, Hillary-loving studio audience. Her co-hosts soon followed her lead.
Co-host Meghan McCain called out her liberal co-hosts and Democrats for defending Senator Elizabeth Warren, on Tuesday’s The View, after Warren released DNA test results showing she greatly exaggerated her Native American heritage. After Whoopi Goldberg went out of her way to defend Warren’s claims, and Joy Behar claimed Warren’s tall tale didn’t matter, McCain argued that they and their fellow Democrats would’ve been singing a different tune had a Republican made these same claims about heritage.
The View co-host and ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin made an outrageous argument on Thursday’s show that should raise eyebrows. Discussing Melania Trump’s comments stating we needed evidence when accusations of sexual assault are made, Hostin grew irate after co-hosts Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain defended the need for due process. Objecting to the need for supporting evidence of any kind, Hostin gushed, “A woman’s word is enough!”
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.”
Question: What is more cringe-inducing than a celebrity funeral? Answer: Two back-to-back celebrity funerals. The ghoulish twin spectacles last week memorializing Aretha Franklin and John McCain brought out the worst in family, friends and frenemies. No matter your partisan affiliation, these vulgar exercises in self-indulgence should serve as object lessons on how not to depart with dignity.
During Saturday’s memorial service to the life of Senator John McCain, some of the speakers decided it was a perfect time to get political and take shots at the sitting President. NBC’s Sunday Today picked up right where they left off and disturbingly touted their politicized eulogies and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd hyped suggestions of them being a “call to arms” against President Trump.
If hell had a sound, it would be like listening to the women on the View — and Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti — talking about sex.
Could The View have found its first male co-host in Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti? Though the female-led show would most likely not buck tradition by doing so, the liberal women certainly seemed to enjoy having the attack dog for #theResistance fill-in as co-host on their show, Friday.
CNN’s Van Jones was the guest on Thursday’s The View where he plugged his primetime weekend show aimed at bringing together conservatives and liberals. While he mostly argued the haughty Michelle Obama-esque “When they go low, we go high” approach for the left, host Sunny Hostin badgered him for that take, saying anything less than hostility to Trump voters was being “complicit.”
View co-host Meghan McCain exploded at liberal talker Joy Behar on Tuesday, declaring it “dangerous” for the Democratic Party to be “normalizing” socialism. Discussing the rise of democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the token conservative attacked: “This makes my head explode!” She lambasted her liberal co-hosts, telling them: “Everyone that goes on TV saying that it's good needs to start paying 90 percent in taxes.”
The media outrage was out of control yesterday after President Trump’s complimentary comments towards Vladimir Putin and denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election, at a press conference in Helsinki, Finland, Monday morning. That outrage spilled over to Tuesday's coverage, as ABC’s The View hosts were unanimously upset at Trump’s rhetoric, even comparing the words to an act of treason.
Friday, The View’s Hot Topics table, devolved into a shouting match between Republican hosts Meghan McCain and Tara Setmayer. The Never Trump, CNN commentator was a fill-in host for the day, and used the opportunity to air her grievances against Republicans who supported the President as part of a “cult.” McCain took issue with Setmayer’s rhetoric and the two sparred, as some of the liberal hosts chimed in to support Setmayer.
