Meghan McCain Clashes With Joy Behar Over Media Bias: Time‘s ‘King’ Trump Cover ‘Moves the Needle No Place’

Meghan McCain collided with her fellow panelists on The View today — this time over media bias and the reasons why President Donald Trump‘s supporters around the country aren’t phased by negative news coverage. The conversation was focused on Time Magazine‘s new cover depicting Trump looking in a mirror and seeing himself as a king. As the ladies reflected on the recent news and suggested that TIME accurately depicted Trump’s perspective, McCain said the cover is good for riling up the media, but Middle America doesn’t acknowledge or care about it. As McCain cycled through polls saying more Americans believe the mainstream media churns out fake news, Joy Behar argued that Trump’s attacks on the press are causing “the erosion of democracy.” McCain met her halfway and said some parts of Trump Administration resemble a “dictatorship,” but she stuck to her point that Trump has seized on Continue reading "Meghan McCain Clashes With Joy Behar Over Media Bias: Time‘s ‘King’ Trump Cover ‘Moves the Needle No Place’"

The View Laments the State of Discourse in Trump’s America: ‘We’re All Stomping Around’ in the Swamp

The View today started the show with a segment that quickly turned into a meditation on discourse in Trump’s America. They kicked off with the Twitter feud between President Trump and Morning Joe after the President missed the irony of him attacking anyone else for making up crap about a woman’s facelift:

A Guide to Celebrity Offensive Remarks and The Punishments They Faced (Or Lack There Of)

Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee reignited the ongoing culture war about what’s offensive and what’s punishable in American society. All week long, we’ve heard folks on the right call out the double standards in the fallout of these controversies, comparing ABC canceling Roseanne’s show to the lack of consequences Bee among others have faced for their repugnant remarks. In order to advance the dialogue, we must reflect on how people were treated thus far. So here’s a list of high-profile individuals from both sides of the aisle who in recent years were swept up in controversy and the fallout they faced.

The View on Trump’s Demand For Apology from ABC: He Doesn’t Get ‘Difference Between Criticism and Racism’

The ladies on The View condemned President Donald Trump today — as he continues to make himself the center or the commotion regarding ABC’s cancellation of Roseanne. Even though the president has yet to say anything about Barr’s racist comments about Valerie Jarrett, he’s still demanding apologies from ABC over the network’s critical coverage of his administration. “He doesn’t seem to know the difference between criticism and racism,” Joy Behar said. “People criticize the president. That is the job of the media: to criticize…That’s a job of the president to accept the criticism like a man.” The panel went on to discuss how the current development fits with Trump’s pattern of crying “fake news” over news reports he doesn’t like, not because they aren’t actually true. Sunny Hostin declared that Trump shouldn’t receive apologies from anyone until he can prove he actually deserves them.
“If he is looking Continue reading "The View on Trump’s Demand For Apology from ABC: He Doesn’t Get ‘Difference Between Criticism and Racism’"

Sarah Sanders Rips ‘Double Standard’ of Roseanne Backlash, Cites Keith Olbermann, Jemele Hill, Kathy Griffin

The other shoe has dropped for President Donald Trump vis-à-vis the Roseanne debacle, in the form of the White House press corps asking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders why the heck he hasn’t said anything about it yet. NBC News’ Kelly O’Donnell was the one to break the ice. “Has the president spoken to Roseanne Barr who we know has been a longtime friend of his and why did he choose to address the ABC apology instead of the underlying issue of concerns about a racist comment that she tweeted out?” she asked. “I’m not aware of any conversations that have taken place,” Sanders responded. “The president [is] simply calling out the media bias. No one’s defending what [Roseanne] said. The president is the president of all Americans and he’s focused on doing what is best for our country.” “The president is pointing to the hypocrisy Continue reading "Sarah Sanders Rips ‘Double Standard’ of Roseanne Backlash, Cites Keith Olbermann, Jemele Hill, Kathy Griffin"

The View Destroys Trump For ‘Tone-Deaf’ Memorial Day Tweet: ‘Your Fricking Communications Team’ Should Stop You

President Donald Trump‘s Memorial Day tweet was roundly panned on Twitter Monday, and also by the ladies of The View Tuesday. Whoopi Goldberg began the skewering session by noting that many, including veterans, said the message was “tone-deaf,” to which Joy Behar replied: “Duh.” “First of all, Obama pulled the U.S. out of the great recession and the economy has been steadily improving since. So he can’t really take credit for anything that he’s done,” Behar continued. “I think the greatest point is that we should be talking about our fallen Continue reading "The View Destroys Trump For ‘Tone-Deaf’ Memorial Day Tweet: ‘Your Fricking Communications Team’ Should Stop You"

Laura Ingraham: I Trust Joy Behar More With National Intelligence At This Point Than James Clapper

On Tuesday night, Laura Ingraham and Newt Gingrich blasted former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for his involvement in the surveillance of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Clapper appeared on The View and pushed back against the assertion that he lied under oath about a NSA surveillance program that targeted law-abiding citizens, insisting that he “made a mistake.” He also noted that he never liked using the term “spying.” The former Speaker accused Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennon, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch of “lying” to the American people and believed that everything was being “coordinated” by President Obama and Valerie Jarrett. Gingrich then went after Clapper for his View appearance, saying after years of knowing him that he’s “astounded at how bad he looks now” and how “dishonest and Continue reading "Laura Ingraham: I Trust Joy Behar More With National Intelligence At This Point Than James Clapper"
