The View returned Thursday after being interrupted by this week’s wall-to-wall impeachment hearings coverage, to discuss that very topic. Liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin claimed President Trump was running scared because Democrats had the smoking gun. However, Meghan McCain and Abby Huntsman weren’t convinced and pointed out how far removed Democrats were from public opinion on impeachment.
Behar began by smirking that Trump was clearly “nervous” after Ambassador Sondland’s testimony. Hostin agreed that Trump was becoming unglued by these hearings: “I think so. He appeared to be coming undone, in my view, when I saw that.”
She went on to argue that it “didn’t matter” “at all” if President Trump didn’t tell Sondland that Ukraine aid would be withheld until Biden was investigated:
What was interesting for me also during Sondland’s testimony is that the Republican defense in this has been, ‘but Sondland didn’t speak directly to the President.’ But that doesn’t matter at all. What matters is that Sondland said that he was speaking to Giuliani who was acting at the direction of the President.
A few weeks ago, Behar also argued it didn’t matter if the whistleblower was a Democrat who had worked for Biden when he was Vice President. It seems a lot of relevant things don’t “matter, at all” to the liberal hosts when they have an impeachment agenda they want to ram through.
But Huntsman pointed out a new poll showed “90%” of Republicans still supported the President. She argued that Democrats didn’t have what they needed to impeach Trump because they had yet to point to any crime.
That triggered Behar who shouted, “Baloney, baloney! They’re in a cult!”
However McCain chided Behar and Hostin for believing that these impeachment hearings were going to move the needle on public opinion. She also blasted the media’s “low ratings” for these hearings, arguing Democrats had nothing of substance:
We can’t get sucked into the beltway in the media circles. What I saw last night on the debate stage is not going to be good enough to beat him. You all are very convinced he’s crazy, he’s whatever. He’s always been crazy like a fox. I knew he was going to win in 2016 and I’m telling you right now if you think this impeachment hearing and everything with Sondland and the 30,000 cast of characters which by the way, every day is ticking lower and lower on ratings. If you think this is enough to have it locked and loaded you are naive!
But Behar claimed Democrats just needed more people to testify: “I would like to see these people answer subpoenas Giuliani, Bolton and Mike Pompeo!” she gushed.
McCain pointed out “what matters” is the “electoral college.” Of course that system which the framers intended to protect the rights and interests of Americans in less populated states, was deemed racist by the liberal co-hosts.
Behar snarked, “That was created to save slave states,” as Sunny Hostin echoed her approval and they cut to commercial.
I won’t play the video clip. My tenuous grip on sanity is hanging by a thread as it is.
Walters described the show as “a talk show featuring four or five women ‘of different backgrounds, different generations, and different opinions,’ who would discuss the topics of the day, mixing humor with intelligent debate.”
ROTFLSHIPMP! Baba Wawa can be a real hoot.
On October 30, 2014, ABC announced that responsibilities for production oversight on The View would shift from ABC’s daytime entertainment division to Lincoln Square Productions, an ABC News subsidiary, where the show will be grouped under the division’s non-fiction programming umbrella.
The show is not news. On the other hand, it’s not entertaining either. It is surreality television.
When You have slanted your messaging so much in favor of the Democrats that Meggy Mac feels obligated to indirectly defend Donald Trump, You have left reality far behind. Megs is just like her father – she claims to be a conservative Republican but would rather burn the entire GOP to the ground rather than support DJT. Unlike her father, her wardrobe is designed by Hugh Jass. Seriously, Megs should check into the Hanoi Hilton. That placed helped her father and a bunch of other US servicemen lose weight and keep it off.
As far as the show, they aren’t even trying to be honest brokers They intentionally mislead their viewers with untruths, half-truths, and lies made up of whole cloth. It is as if they read Nineteen Eighty-Four and thought it was a DIY manual. But instead of Orwell they should study Lincoln:
“You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”
If you were someone who didn’t follow politics and/or read/watch the news on a daily basis and you heard bits and pieces of the Democrats talking about impeachment you might have assumed that the Democrats really had found something bad that Trump had done. Even if you don’t understand right now what it is they say he did, you figure they’re gonna produce all the evidence and explain what Trump did and why it was wrong.
Well, we had some hearing this week and last week. The Democrats brought in a bunch of witnesses and they testified. If the only parts you watched were when the Democrats were questioning witnesses, You likely would have come away wondering what the Democrats were smoking.
But if you listened to the GOP’s limited cross-examinations of the witnesses, you might find yourself wondering where’s the beef?
During the Clinton impeachment, there was little dispute as to what Bill Clinton had done. People understood what the charges were. The official reason that Bill Clinton was impeached was that he lied under oath. The unofficial reason for Clinton’s impeachment was that he was schtupping Monica Lewinsky. Newt Gingrich was the driving force in pushing the House to impeach Bill Clinton. Gingrich mistakenly believed that when Republicans laid out what Clinton had done, the voters would turn on Billy.
