The View Rips Trump for ‘Nasty’ Tweet on Christine Ford: He Should Know by Now Why Women Don’t Speak Up

The hosts of The View went in on President Donald Trump‘s tweets this morning about Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford. Trump’s restraint in talking about Ford was so noticeable that there was even a CNN report yesterday on how Trump’s own aides were stunned by how respectful he was being. And then this morning he tweeted this: Whoopi Goldberg teed up Trump’s tweet by saying, “It’s all sort of nuts because a lot of other dudes have strong opinions.” “He has enough accusers to know why people Continue reading "The View Rips Trump for ‘Nasty’ Tweet on Christine Ford: He Should Know by Now Why Women Don’t Speak Up"

Joy Behar Unleashes on ‘Probably Guilty’ Kavanaugh: ‘Take a Lie Detector Test!’

Joy Behar had a passionate moment on Wednesday when she ravaged congressional Republicans for saying Brett Kavanaugh‘s Supreme Court confirmation should proceed despite the firestorm swirling around him. The View used most of its A Block to talk about Christine Ford, the woman accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assault who now refuses to testify before the senate unless the FBI investigates her claims first. As Behar talked about how men have an obligation to help protect women from potential predators, she slammed the “old, white men” in the Senate Judiciary Committee who aren’t doing that with Kavanaugh, who Behar is presuming guilty. “They’re protecting a man who is probably guilty,” Behar declared. “If you’re not, Judge Kavanaugh, take the lie detector test. Prove it the way she did and the way Anita Hill did, that they were not lying. Let’s see that from you, or are you a coward?

The View Battles Over Kavanaugh: GOP Won’t Blow Their ‘Chance of a Lifetime’ to Overturn Roe

The View, on Tuesday, debated the upcoming Senate hearing in which Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will both testify about the sexual assault allegations made by the former against the latter. The panel began by comparing President Donald Trump‘s statement defending Kavanaugh to similar remarks he’s made about figures like Rob Porter, Michael Flynn and Kim Jong Un. This led to Whoopi Goldberg asking whether the FBI needs to do another investigation on Kavanaugh before there’s a confirmation vote. Sunny Hostin criticized congressional Republicans who want to rush the judge’s confirmation, saying a new investigation is necessary given the seriousness of the allegations and the political importance of Kavanaugh’s nomination. Abby Hunstman pushed back by saying there’s a lot of things the public doesn’t yet know about the allegations, and an investigation should wait until Kavanaugh and Ford’s Senate hearing next week. This led Continue reading "The View Battles Over Kavanaugh: GOP Won’t Blow Their ‘Chance of a Lifetime’ to Overturn Roe"

The View Clashes Over Kavanaugh Allegations: Timing of Letter is ‘Very Political’

The hosts of The View kicked off the show today by addressing the big news about Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who came forward accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault. The Supreme Court nominee issued a statement Monday vociferously denying the allegation. Sunny Hostin said Ford should be heard because her allegations are “very credible” and “extremely important.” Joy Behar noted how Ford took a lie detector test and said Republicans are pushing Kavanaugh’s nomination through because they’re worried about how the midterms would turn out. Abby Huntsman said she didn’t like the politics surrounding this, pointing to how Dianne Feinstein received the letter in July and saying, “It seems as if the Democrats put this in a drawer and said, ‘This is big and this is going to benefit us is if we use the time perfectly.” Goldberg noted that Ford had asked Feinstein to keep Continue reading "The View Clashes Over Kavanaugh Allegations: Timing of Letter is ‘Very Political’"

Joy Behar: Julie Chen Can’t Return to The Talk Until She ‘Comes Clean’ on Husband Les Moonves

Joy Behar doesn’t see how Julie Chen can possibly return to The Talk on CBS unless she “comes clean” on the troubles surrounding her husband, recently ousted CBS chief Les Moonves. The View on Friday discussed how Chen surprised viewers last night by closing out the latest episode of Big Brother by calling herself “Julie Chen-Moonves.” Since this was unusual on Chen’s part, the View panel took it as a sign that she’s standing with her husband despite the fact that he was recently ousted over an increasing number of sexual misconduct allegations. With Chen having been absent from The Talk over the last few days, Behar believes it’s “going to be hard” for her to come back if she cannot acknowledge something as prominent as the #MeToo movement without saying she’s part of it. “What topics can they do?” Behar asked. “They can’t talk about anything related Continue reading "Joy Behar: Julie Chen Can’t Return to The Talk Until She ‘Comes Clean’ on Husband Les Moonves"

The View Tears Into Tucker Carlson for Avenatti Interview: The Whole of Fox News Was a ‘Sleaze Factory!’

By now you’ve probably heard that Tucker Carlson and Michael Avenatti fought last night and it was a bit of a trainwreck. Carlson’s chyrons kept using the “creepy porn lawyer” nickname, Avenatti asked Carlson when he last watched porn––you get the idea. After the interview, Avenatti took to Twitter to react to those chyrons and call Carlson a liar. On The View this morning, Whoopi Goldberg said the interview went “exactly the way you kinda thought they might.” Abby Huntsman, who up until recently worked at Fox News, said it just felt like two men “trying to out-macho the other.” Sunny Hostin said Avenatti came out on top, particularly because of Carlson’s chyron pettiness:
“You call yourself a television host and it’s on a news platform. I mean, that’s something we’d never be allowed to do. Our legal standards are beyond that. We wouldn’t be allowed to Continue reading "The View Tears Into Tucker Carlson for Avenatti Interview: The Whole of Fox News Was a ‘Sleaze Factory!’"

WATCH: Norm MacDonald Explains #MeToo, Down Syndrome Comments in Strange View Segment

Comedian and SNL alum Norm Macdonald appeared on The View today following an escalating series of remarks, starting with comments about the #MeToo movement, that have stirred outrage and controversy. The unusually quiet segment itself drew controversy shortly after it ended, prompting a response from the View hosts. The interview began with Whoopi Goldberg asking about his original remarks to the Hollywood Reporter. “You took a lot of flack for saying in the — for some things that you said in the Hollywood Reporter,” she said, “saying that you were kind of glad that the MeToo movement has slowed down. We don’t really know you as a guy who, you know, really comments on much. What were you trying to say?” “Well, I was– you know, print reporters, they ask the questions and they put them all together,” he said. “What I was talking about was Chris Hardwick, Continue reading "WATCH: Norm MacDonald Explains #MeToo, Down Syndrome Comments in Strange View Segment"
