    enny McCarthy is speaking out about her time on "The View." During an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" on Tuesday, the "Masked Singer" star, 46, revealed that creator Barbara Walters once wanted her to "act Republican." "... When I was on there, it was really hilarious, because they initially had me come on to be the pop culture girl because they wanted to change it," McCarthy explained to host Andy Cohen.

    The shouting match between co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain that capped off Monday’s tribute to former President George H.W. Bush went unmentioned on Tuesday’s episode of The View. But the lingering tension between the two women was unmistakable. At one point during their discussion about the Mueller investigation, Behar noted that Donald Trump is “the only president who has his own TV channel in history,” adding, “Nixon didn't have it. So he has Fox News and Fox will just back him up.” When former Fox News host Abby Huntsman interrupted with, “I would be careful about that,” Behar said,...
  • Behar under fire for snapping at Meghan McCain when asked not to bash Trump during Bush-1 tribute

    NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News that Behar’s remark during the Bush tribute was a “microcosm” of the media’s “permanent obsession” with Trump. “Joy Behar’s insistence that the Bush tribute center around Trump was a microcosm of the media’s permanent obsession with the current president, showing an embarrassing inability to cover stories or pay tribute to people like George H. W. Bush or John McCain without their cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome breaking through,” Houck said. Mediaite editor Caleb Howe agreed that there was an “obsession” that was made apparent by Behar. “Behar doesn’t even know what she...

    If there was one thing it seemed most Americans could agree on this weekend it was that former President George H.W. Bush was generally a good man who had the country’s best interest at heart. And yet, somehow, the hosts of The View still found a way to turn his tribute into an argument on Monday morning. Things started off cordial enough with moderator Whoopi Goldberg noting how the remembrances from Presidents Clinton and Obama have helped remind us “how you can still not agree with somebody but be respectful of somebody.” “He seemed to be coming from a loving,...

    During Thursday’s edition of The View, the panel weighed in on CNN's lawsuit against the Trump administration for revoking White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” The panel rushed to Acosta’s defense, in addition to spouting the usual talking points about how Sarah Sanders is a liar. The liberal co-hosts on The View ultimately concluded that President Trump “does not like to be asked tough questions he doesn’t want to answer.” After explaining to President Trump that “that’s their job” to ask tough questions, co-host Whoopi Goldberg advised President Trump: “if you can’t handle it, get out of the kitchen,...

    Thursday on ABC’s The View, co-host Joy Behar slammed Wednesday night’s Country Music Awards show for staying out of politics. As nearly every entertainment awards show has made itself part of the resistance against President Trump, Behar was sorely disappointed to see this was one show where Trump’s name wasn’t mentioned. . . Whoopi pointed out that people “voted” to fulfill that duty of resisting Trump. “I'm happy for that,” Behar acknowledged, before touting that she, unlike the country music artists, was willing to take a financial hit in order to be loudly anti-Trump.

    "The View" co-host Sunny Hostin said it was the young White House aide and not CNN reporter Jim Acosta who committed battery when attempting to remove a microphone from Acosta’s hand at a press conference on Wednesday. Acosta got into a heated exchange with President Trump, who told Acosta to sit down and refused to take further questions from the reporter. A White House aide, later identified as an intern, then tried to remove the microphone from Acosta, who resisted and asked a follow-up question. As the intern tried to grab the mic, Acosta said, "pardon me, ma'am" and continued...

    Joy Behar said Democrats lost key senate races because of gerrymandering in a segment on ABC’s ‘The View’ Wednesday morning. For some bizarre reason, ABC’s News’s Matthew Dowd brought up the fact that more ballots were cast in favor of the total number of Democratic candidates than Republican candidates running for U.S. Senate.

    The View began their show Monday by addressing the Saturday Night Live controversy where comedian Pete Davidson mocked a wounded veteran who also happened to be a Republican running in an upcoming midterm election. . . “He was making fun of people. He's not a comedian trying to get a laugh,” she retorted. After Huntsman argued again that jokes about veterans were unacceptable, Behar gushed, “What else is on the list? Of not making fun of anybody? Who else is on the list?” Whoopi then cut to commercial.

    Variety ^ | November 2, 2018 | Ramin Seetoodeh
    “The View” is adding Republican strategist Ana Navarro as a guest co-host one day a week, Variety has learned. Navarro will fill in on “The View” every Friday, rounding out the Season 22 panel with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman. Goldberg takes Fridays off as the moderator, which is why the show needs a sixth rotating cast member at the Hot Topics table. According to sources, Navarro had been in talks to join “The View” as a full-time co-host in the fall, but those negotiations fell apart due to salary demands. In addition to...

    Thursday on The View, the liberal hosts grilled their guest, FNC's Geraldo Rivera, for comments he made about the pipe bomb suspect, and the media’s attacks on President Trump. Rivera, who's not a conservative by any stretch of the imagination, still took heat because he defended President Trump and called out CNN for being partisan and biased. The interview started with Rivera disagreeing with the president about immigration and the caravan but he quickly got into a heated argument with the liberal hosts once they started talking about the mail bombs and the media. Co-host Joy Behar asked about Rivera’s...

    Monday on The View, co-host Joy Behar snapped at her fellow co-host Meghan McCain after she was called out for changing the topic twice to make a liberal point. The second time, Behar lost it, spouting, “I jump to wherever I damn please!” as the audience loudly applauded her for standing up to her right-leaning co-host. After Sunny Hostin laid part of the responsibility on Trump for “setting the tone” that allegedly made this violence possible, Behar and Hostin then blamed guns, citing many of the recent shootings carried out by people with AR-15s. Behar added,“[Y]ou need laws. You need...

    After the hosts complained President Trump hadn’t said enough to unify the country, an emotional McCain took it upon herself to apologize for “contributing to the polarization of the country” . . Her co-host Sunny Hostin applauded McCain for making that admission, while making a dig at President Trump. “It takes a big person to say what you just said. [applause] It does. It takes a person of great character to do that. I unfortunately don't know if this president has that kind of character,” she sighed.

PAULA FARIS: There are accusations but there are three women that claim that he did things to them that they didn’t want. One of them is Paula Jones…. Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey.

    Sasse went on to first praise the “#MeToo” movement as “really important,” saying that Ford “needed to be heard,” but he said that the investigation and lack of corroboration from 4 alleged witnesses led him to vote to confirm Kavanaugh. Behar tried to argue with Sasse claiming the people named simply “didn’t remember it” and were “probably drunk.”

    'The View' co-host and attorney Sunny Hostin, arguing against due process, said on Thursday's show that "a woman's word is enough" and that she has taken cases to trial based on a woman's testimony and no witnesses. She said you don't need a witness, all you need is "someone's truth." Hostin celebrated the progression of how the law treats sexual assault: "We finally said a woman's word is enough." "I've taken many cases to trial with just a woman's word," Hostin said to applause. "And now you have the First Lady of the United States telling women everywhere your word...
