The View spent their Wednesday gossiping over the news that Stormy Daniels is filing a lawsuit against President Trump. The porn star is taking action against the president because she claims that Trump never signed the nondisclosure agreement over their sexual affair years ago. Michael Cohen previously admitted to paying Daniels off, and Daniels believes that between the Trump lawyer’s public statements and the absence of the president’s signature on the NDA, the gag order should be null and void. The women of The View talked a great deal about how the act of paying hush money during the 2016 election Continue reading "The View Takes on Stormy Daniels Lawsuit: Could Build Six People From DNA in Oval Office"
STORMY SUES PREZ OVER "HUSH MONEY": Adult film actress Stormy Daniels is suing Pres. Trump, alleging the nondisclosure agreement she signed is not valid because Trump himself never signed it.

The View held an in-depth conversation on guns on Wednesday as they talked about the nationwide student marches in protest of gun violence, one month after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Meghan McCain expressed concern about rhetoric accusing pro-Second Amendment supporters of endorsing gun violence. McCain wished that there was a more nuanced conversation with more inclusion for pro-gun students after the massacre, but she also reminded her co-hosts that law-abiding gun owners are also horrified by school shootings. Whoopi Goldberg noted that some of today’s protesters are demanding a conversation about guns, which led to a discussion about the rights of students to speak out on these issues. McCain noted how many anti-NRA protesters have gotten a bigger media profile over the last few weeks, and she took issue with how things have gone during events like CNN’s recent town hall. “I thought it was really inappropriate and Continue reading "Meghan McCain and Whoopi Spar Over Gun Violence Protests: ‘We’re Tired of the BS’"
Hillary Clinton spoke in India this weekend, and of course, criticism followed. “His whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again’, was looking backwards,” Clinton said over the wekeend. “You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women getting jobs. You don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it. So it was a symptom, but it was also a cause.” The women of The View broke down the former secretary of state’s comments Tuesday. And naturally, Meghan McCain had her daggers out. “I think at this point, if you can’t stop making this about virtue signaling and race, a lot of it was about poverty, a lot of it was about the economy, a lot of it was just this Anti-Washington sentiment,” McCain said. “Honestly, I have to tell you. It’s one thing to lose to Continue reading "The View Goes Nuts Over Hillary Comments in India: ‘The Clintons Are a Virus’"
The View discussed Stormy Daniels this morning and started with the fact that Sarah Huckabee Sanders had essentially confirmed the existence of an NDA by saying that the “case has already been won in arbitration.” “It’s been reported that trump was very, very upset with Sarah Sanders for basically confirming the fact that an arbitration happened and that this NDA does exist,” Sunny Hostin said. “Can I just say one thing about her? That girl is an amateur liar. Her boss is a professional,” Joy Behar said. “She’s not good enough of a liar. Like out of the mouths of babes comes the truth, you know. It was almost like painful to watch that.” Guest host Deborah Roberts took it in a different direction and talked about the ick factor of the whole story. “When my son is having breakfast in the morning and we’re hearing the president Continue reading "The View Breaks Down ‘Painful’ WH Briefing on Stormy Daniels: Sarah Sanders is an ‘Amateur Liar’"
The View got incredibly contentious on Thursday morning discussing concealed carry for teachers and more security in schools. In particular, Meghan McCain, the only member of the cast who was really prioritizing higher school security above better gun control, said that she didn’t mind having armed teachers in schools. At the beginning of the conversation, Joy Behar said: “I was a teacher. Believe me, you don’t want me to hold a gun.” “President Trump is talking about people with military experience who are comfortable,” McCain said. Confusion ensued as the entire panel jockeyed for the floor. “Do you really think that’s practical? Do you know how many schools there are in this country?” Behar asked. “I think schools need to be guarded much more than they are now,” McCain said, over chatter from the others. “Can we talk about statistics? Can we talk about facts? Because I Continue reading "The View Goes Off The Rails While Debating Concealed Carry: ‘Everybody Just Take a Breath!’"
Joy Behar didn’t mean to offend when she implied VP Mike Pence is a little nuts because he allegedly believes Jesus speaks to him. “Do you think Christians are mentally ill?” Whoopi Goldberg asked on Thursday’s episode of The View (which was largely pre-empted in many markets due to special coverage of the Parkland, FL school shooting). “Of course not. I don’t mean to offend people, but apparently I keep doing it,” Behar said. “It was a joke. Comedians are in danger these days.” Goldberg then responded to allegations that The View and ABC are intolerant of others’ religious beliefs because of what was said on the show. “To call us intolerant or to call out ABC… I find a little hard,” she said. “I give money to the church. I actually help Christians with my pocketbook,” Behar added. Then Meghan McCain chimed in with a bit more Continue reading "Joy Behar Walks Back Comments Mocking Pence For Speaking to Jesus: ‘It Was a Joke’"
President Donald Trump has reportedly ordered the Pentagon to begin organizing a grand military parade, after experiencing something akin to pageantry envy upon witnessing France’s Bastille Day parade. Of course, parades cost money and military parades cost even more money. Moving all of that heavy machinery around is not cheap. Whoopi Goldberg, during today’s The View, called the president out for attempting to make taxpayers foot the bill for this extravagant show of military might. “Right now, in America, we’ve got a tax cut costing the US, you know, $1.5 trillion, a border wall, they say, is gonna be $25 billion and the government on the verge of another shutdown,” she said. “So, you know who in the White House has a very special thing he wants to do. He wants to throw a big blowout military parade, with tanks and troops marching through D.C.” Goldberg continued, Continue reading "Whoopi Goldberg: If You Want a Parade, Mr. President, ‘You Pay for It’"
