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 Cracks Up Over Stormy Daniels Comparing Trump’s Penis to Nintendo’s Toad: ‘You Can’t Make This Up’

On Wednesday, The View joined the political observers having a field day over how Stormy Daniels described her alleged sexual encounter with President Trump in her upcoming book. Late night comics and people in general were taken aback yesterday over an excerpt of Full Disclosure where Daniels compared Trump’s penis to Toad, the mushroom-like character from Nintendo’s Mario franchise. The panel snickered as Whoopi Goldberg brought this topic to the floor, even as she rightfully captured everyone’s feelings when she said “you will never look at Super Mario Kart the same way again.” “He is wanting so badly to respond to this and he can’t legally,” Abby Hunstman said through laughter. “He’s got to be so frustrated. I don’t think anyone this this country wants to hear anything about President Trump from below the waist, below the belt.” The panel continued to discuss whether this is a Continue reading "The View Cracks Up Over Stormy Daniels Comparing Trump’s Penis to Nintendo’s Toad: ‘You Can’t Make This Up’"

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"

Schumer on The View: Christine Ford’s Allegations ‘Extremely Credible,’ Feinstein Did the Right Thing With Letter

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer appeared on The View this morning and said he finds the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford against Brett Kavanaugh “extremely credible.” “She took a lie detector test. She talked to this to her therapist. They were having family counseling in part because of what happened to her,” he said. “To come out and say something like this puts you and your family through incredible scrutiny. People throw brick bats at you and everything else. She didn’t do it on a whim. I don’t think she did it for political reasons. She has a great deal of credibility.” He rejected the idea that there’s anything political about the timing, defending Dianne Feinstein‘s handling of the letter and saying she “did the right thing.” “When a woman is abused,” he said, “it is her prerogative as to how, where, why, when, if Continue reading "Schumer on The View: Christine Ford’s Allegations ‘Extremely Credible,’ Feinstein Did the Right Thing With Letter"

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"
