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.
On Thursday's The View show, during a discussion of reports that gay Olympic skater Adam Rippon had turned down the opportunity to meet with Vice President Mike Pence because of his views on gay rights, co-host Whoopi Goldberg at one point defended the decision by suggesting that meeting with Pence would be like a Jew having a meeting with a Nazi.
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.
Hollywood has never really been a shining advocate of clear lines between right and wrong.
But when it comes to Tinseltown's favorite rapey auteur, Roman Polanski, somehow the moral boundaries are not applicable anymore. In an interview with Howard Stern in 2003, brought to light by Jezebel, director Quentin Tarantino defended convicted child rapist Roman Polanski as innocent. His reason? “He didn’t rape a 13 year old, it was statutory rape. That’s not quite the same thing, alright?”
As Whoopi Goldberg appeared as a guest in a pre-recorded interview for CNN's The Axe Files on Saturday night, the liberal comedian and co-host of ABC's The View repeated the myth that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell pledged not to work with Barack Obama right after he was elected President, and then claimed that "a lot of" the opposition to Obama was "based in race" as she declared that "That group that never got over the fact that slavery was abolished is still out there." She also responded to a question from host David Axelrod about why she always refuses to speak Donald Trump's name as she co-hosts The View.
The liberal ladies of ABC’s The View were quick to choose sides in the feud between controversial actress Jane Fonda and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly on the January 23 episode of their show. After Kelly attacked Fonda as someone who had no moral authority to lecture others on what was “offensive,” after her history of anti-American activism in Vietnam, the View hosts gasped at Kelly’s nerve in going after the actress.
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.”
Wednesday on ABC’s The View, the largely liberal panel mocked the idea that officials appointed by President Obama, still working in the federal government, could have an agenda against President Trump.
The hosts at The View are not strangers to comparing President Trump to dictators and terrorists. They spent several shows in 2016 and 2017 comparing the Republican agenda to terrorism, and claiming that Trump was turning America into the Taliban.
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.”
