Sunny Hostin Absolutely Goes OFF on Trump for Using Children as ‘Pawns’: ‘He Should Be Ashamed of Himself!’

On The View this morning, Sunny Hostin went on a tear against President Trump over the continued plight of children separated from their parents. “We don’t need legislation,” she said. “This President can stop it. This is the President’s idea. He created this crisis… because he wants his wall.” Hostin said Trump is clearly looking to get that $25 billion for the wall and he’s “using these children at the border as pawns”:
“It is immoral. It isn’t Christian. It is ugly. It’s child abuse. A human rights abuse. And he should be ashamed of himself! People who support him should be ashamed of themselves. It’s disgusting.”
During the show The View mentioned a breaking report from Fox News that Trump may actually take some executive action:

The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg Delivers Impassioned Plea: Left or Right, Child Separation ‘Has to Piss You Off!’

The View continued to slam President Donald Trump on Tuesday, showing clear disapproval for how the White House has tried to justify and explain their division of migrant families at the U.S.-Mexico border. Sara Haines had a hard time taking DHS Chief Kirstjen Nielsen seriously, saying that the Secretary of Homeland Security blundered yesterday’s press briefing just as she other press events. Joy Behar followed up, condemning Trump defenders like Fox News’ Laura Ingraham for dismissing the widespread outrage and saying migrant children are basically placed in “summer camp” after being taken away from their families. “Children want their parents. They want their grandparents there,” Behar said. “I don’t think in summer camp mothers were dragged out screaming ‘I want my child back.’ They were sending them to camp.” Whoopi Goldberg eventually got in on the conversation with an impassioned plea, noting that with so much Continue reading "The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg Delivers Impassioned Plea: Left or Right, Child Separation ‘Has to Piss You Off!’"

The View Condemns Trump Border Policy in Fiery Segment: This Will ‘Haunt’ Republicans

The women of The View were ready at the very beginning of their show Monday morning to absolutely tear the Trump administration apart for the “zero tolerance” immigration policy which has separated nearly 2000 children from their families. First off, Whoopi Goldberg wanted to set the record straight on the administration’s insistence that the policy is a law. “It certainly is a crime to enter the United States and cross the border illegally,” Sunny Hostin explained. “It’s a misdemeanor and it’s punishable up to six months in prison and/or a fine. However, there is no law that mandates that children must be separated from their families.” “So when Donald Trump says the Democrats have a law, he is lying,” Joy Behar said. “That is not true,” Hostin confirmed. “Okay. He is lying. Say it,” Behar said to laughter from the audience. “I have my legal hat on. I’m acting Continue reading "The View Condemns Trump Border Policy in Fiery Segment: This Will ‘Haunt’ Republicans"

The View Mocks Trump’s Bromance With Kim Jong Un: He ‘Knows The Real Enemy is Canada’

The hosts of The View mocked Donald Trump for his blooming friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, as the group joked that the president thinks “the new enemy is Canada” and joked that he “has praise for every dictator that ever lived.” Today’s airing of ABC’s daytime talk show began with the crew discussing Trump’s summit with Kim in Singapore earlier this week and included a clip of the president calling the dictator “a very smart guy” and a “great negotiator” who he understands. “Trump knows that the real enemy is Canada,” Joy Behar joked. “I’m sure he has praise for Pol Pot and Idi Amin and every dictator that ever lived.” She continued the riff: “Hannibal — whatever that guy’s name was. Attila the Hun — ‘They were all great!'” Meghan McCain then turned the conversation serious, pointing to the North Korean regime’s Continue reading "The View Mocks Trump’s Bromance With Kim Jong Un: He ‘Knows The Real Enemy is Canada’"

View Hosts Clash With Meghan McCain on Immigration: ‘A Nation Without Borders Is Not a Nation!’

The View had a spirited debate about the nature of immigration in the U.S. in the context of the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy of separating children from their families at the border. “I spoke to a couple of friends who are immigration lawyers because I’m so concerned about this stuff that we’re seeing and they said that this is just an affront to the rule of law, that this is not what this country stands for,” Sunny Hostin said. “These are people that have been practicing immigration law for 20 years, and they have never seen anything like this. This is different.” “Whatever happened to give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses?” Whoopi Goldberg added. “I disagree with a lot of what everyone is saying,” Meghan McCain said. “I believe in comprehensive immigration reform, I always have. I believe in the idea that we Continue reading "View Hosts Clash With Meghan McCain on Immigration: ‘A Nation Without Borders Is Not a Nation!’"

The View Reacts Live to Bombshell Report That Michael Cohen May Flip: Trump is Like a ‘Trapped Animal’ Now

Wednesday morning, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos broke the stunning news that President Donald Trump‘s lawyer, Michael Cohen, is likely getting ready to flip, and cooperate with Federal authorities — a development that Stephanopoulos wrote “will likely hit the White House, family members, staffers and counsels hard.” Moments after Stephanopoulos’ story was published, Whoopi Goldberg shared the news with her View colleagues and the show’s audience (which let up a cheer). They analyzed the bombshell development in real time. “Cohen once said he’d jump out of a building or take a bullet for Trump,” said Sara Haines. “So this is a big switch.” “We should watch Trump right now,” Joy Behar added. “Because when he’s cornered, he gets vicious. So I’m concerned about how he is going to respond. Like a trapped rat, you know?” Behar added, “It’s a trapped animal. He responds like that. It’s Continue reading "The View Reacts Live to Bombshell Report That Michael Cohen May Flip: Trump is Like a ‘Trapped Animal’ Now"

Meghan McCain Bashes Trump For Getting Chummy With Kim: He’s the Closest Thing of Our Time to Hitler

President Donald Trump‘s summit meeting with Kim Jong Un continues to dominate the media cycle, so naturally, The View had plenty of things to say about this historic encounter. As the ladies discussed whether anyone can take Trump and Kim at their word for how things went, Meghan McCain objected to how the American flag and the North Korean flag were equally portrayed in the backdrop of their meeting. She also lamented how amicable Trump and Kim seemed to be throughout their meeting, and how there wasn’t more of a focus on the dictator’s crimes against humanity. “We are not the same,” McCain said. “[Kim’s regime] is completely and utterly the closest thing to Hitler’s Germany that exists in modern time. My problem was how far it went with the buddy-buddy, and there was no talk whatsoever of the human rights violations going on in that country.” McCain Continue reading "Meghan McCain Bashes Trump For Getting Chummy With Kim: He’s the Closest Thing of Our Time to Hitler"
