stopped by The View
on Tuesday, filling in for Meghan McCain
as co-host. And it didn’t take long before she mixed it up with the rest of the panel.
During a discussion about sexual misconduct allegations in politics, Navarro argued that partisanship plays a role in how progressives and conservatives treat various claims .
“You look the other way when it’s your people and you look for every fault when it’s the people against you,” Navarro said. “We’re seeing it plainly on this sexual harassment issue…If you’re a Democrat, a progressive, you don’t want this against [Sen.] Al Franken
[D-MN], but you want it against [Alabama GOP Senate candidate] Roy Moore
, and you want it against [President] Donald Trump
took umbrage with Navarro’s position for, in Behar’s opinion, trying to equate Moore’s alleged child molestation offenses with Franken’s alleged misconduct.

Another woman came forward today alleging that Senator Al Franken groped her during a photo-op
, and The View
covered the news this morning.
There have been calls for Franken to resign since Leeann Tweeden
spoke out last week, and there is going to be a Senate ethics committee investigation.
said, “If Franken has to resign, then Trump needs to resign.”

Bill Maher addressed the recent downpour of sexual harassment allegations with the panel, including the recent revelations about Bill O’Reilly.
“What did Bill O’Reilly do that got that woman $32 million?” Maher asked Joy Behar.
“I wouldn’t f**k him for $32 million,” Behar reacted.
Maher pointed out that it’s “always married guys” that get caught sexually harassing women.
“Why is that?” Behar asked.
“Because they have sh*tty sex lives,” Maher responded.
The View host took offense to his response, thinking he meant that they’re “bored at home” and essentially blaming the wives.
“[Mark] Halperin is accused of masturbating under the desk while he’s talking to somebody,” Behar elaborated. “What’s that got to do with him being married?”
The Daily Beast‘s Betsy Woodruff sided with Behar.
“Let’s not bring the wives into it,” Woodruff said.

On Friday night,
Congresswoman Maxine Waters
has been leading the charge in the Democrats’ fantasy of impeaching and removing President Trump
And it would now appear as though Waters is already looking into the post-President Trump future and directing her ire at the man who would fill the void in the Oval Office, Mike Pence
While discussing her dream of impeaching the President with the ladies of The View
on Friday, host Joy Behar
asked Waters, “Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?”
As much as the Congresswoman clearly detests the President, she apparently has an equal level of disdain for the Vice President.
“No, and when we finish with Trump we have to go and get Putin,” Waters said. (She clarified that she meant Pence.)
Waters has been perhaps the most outspoken opposition voice to the President in the country, leading her supporters in chants of Continue reading "Maxine Waters Tells The View: After We Impeach Trump, We Should Go After Pence Next"
On Tuesday night,
sat down with The View
host Joy Behar
and while most of their interview was about President Trump
, the conversation shifted a bit when discussing First Lady Melania Trump
The Late Night
host asked Behar whether she has sympathy for Melania Trump or think we should judge her “like anybody with free will.”
“I feel sorry for her,” Behar responded. “She had to sleep with him once. At least once, she did,” implying the only time was when their son Barron Trump
She continued on the subject of the President Trump and the First Lady’s sex life.
“And then when she was in New York and we had to pay a million dollars a day to keep her here just because she doesn’t want to sleep with him, we had to pay for that. I didn’t like that,” she said.

Last night’s special election in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District did not turn out the way
Democrats hoped. With tens of millions of dollars behind his campaign,
fresh-faced, 30-year-old Jon Ossoff
was unable to flip the district’s House seat blue for the first time in decades, losing to Republican Karen Handel
by nearly four points in the runoff. (Ossoff had come up just short of 50% in the first round in April, necessitating the runoff.)
Considering the vast amounts of cash spent on Ossoff, and Democrats desperate for a win in special elections to prove they have momentum ahead of the 2018 midterms, it was expected that as soon as the race was called for Handel, there’d be quite a bit of analysis and reflection on what caused the defeat. And, with that, we’d also get knee-jerk reactions from some folks looking for an easy-to-grasp narrative.
On Twitter, we saw Continue reading "Don’t Believe Lazy Pundits: Ossoff Didn’t Lose Because He Focused On Trump"
A lot of the talk surrounding Jon Ossoff
‘s loss last night has been about whether Democrats have a strong enough message that resonates beyond opposition to President Trump
. The hosts of The View
discussed this very issue this morning.
in particular said that maybe Democrats don’t have that strong message:
“The fact remains that since Donald Trump won the election… the Democrats have lost three elections. So if you’re using Donald Trump as your basis for your campaign, I don’t know if it’s working. I don’t think people are going towards the Democrats… and it’s a problem.”
The media narrative about the Ossoff-Karen Handel
race being about––at least in part–-a referendum on Trump led to tweets like this last night:
