    Host Chris Cuomo and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo are being slammed for their lighthearted jokes during a discussion on coronavirus testing on CNN last night. During Wednesday’s episode of Cuomo Prime Time the governor recounted how he was tested for coronavirus on live TV during his daily press briefing on Sunday, leading his brother to joke he had a big nose and required a baseball bat-sized nasal swab for a test. But not all viewers were laughing over the brotherly banter. The View host Meghan McCain led the criticism on Twitter saying: 'I’m not sure I’m going to ever...
  • Joy Behar rejects 'believe all women' motto, prompting Meghan McCain to bring up Kavanaugh saga

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar panned the idea that the media should "believe all women" who allege sexual misconduct and denied applying a different standard to Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh. "To me, if you say I believe any woman who makes any accusation -- if you say that, I think it minimizes our credibility as women, and then nobody's going to believe anybody at some point," Behar said. The co-hosts were discussing former NBC host Matt Lauer's full-throated attack on Ronan Farrow's reporting, which cited a woman accusing the former "Today" star of rape. That prompted Behar to...

    Bombshell is quaking. The Morning Show is quivering in its boots. Somewhere in Rachel McAdams’s house, a poster for Morning Glory just spontaneously fell off the wall. Yes, Ramin Setoodeh’s best-selling book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View’ has been optioned to be adapted into a scripted TV miniseries. Variety reports that the tell-all, which features unprecedented levels of access and interviews with “nearly ever host” of the long-running ABC roundtable daytime television series, sold its screen rights to ex-Lionsgate president Erik Feig’s production company, Picturestart. So it’s time to start fantasy-casting what will surely be...

    The hosts of The View went after Dr. Deborah Birx of President Trump’s coronavirus task force team, Monday, after she scolded the media for continuing to wail about Trump’s disinfectant remark from last Thursday’s briefing. Sunny Hostin attacked Birx for not following the media’s orders, while Whoopi Goldberg claimed Trump’s sloppy remarks made him on the same level as a Nazi death camp doctor. Goldberg began by worrying kids were going to be "injecting disinfectant" into their bodies. Hostin falsely claimed that Trump had provoked a spike in calls to poison control centers (actually, they’ve been up since March): “There...

    "The View" hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Meghan McCain have been sounding off regularly on President Trump's response to the coronavirus outbreak and the race between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. Yet none of them have weighed in on a disturbing sexual assault allegation facing Biden leveled by his former staffer Tara Reade, who went public with her 1993 claim four weeks ago. "The View" isn't alone in the blackout. ABC News, which the daytime talk show is a part of, has not covered the controversy on-air and only acknowledged Reade's claim in the republishing...

    This week, we’re seeing more in the media reveal their contempt for anyone concerned about government overreach, as journalists attacked people protesting their state’s strict stay-at-home orders. Joy Behar added to the hate, offering her own scathing suggestion to the thousands in Michigan who showed up yesterday to protest their Democrat governor. On Thursday’s The View, the co-host claimed anyone who dared to defy their local guidelines should have to sign away their rights to be treated at a hospital if they did get sick. Whoopi Goldberg opened the show asking her co-hosts what they thought about protesters in Michigan...

    “The View” co-host Meghan McCain said on Monday that White House coronavirus press conferences should be aired — but not because she is a fan of the daily briefings. Many members of the mainstream media have called for President Trump’s daily press conferences to be silenced or banned, with some critics comparing them to campaign rallies and others accusing the president of spreading misinformation. But McCain thinks the American people need to see what Trump has to say for the sake of transparency so that he can’t use people’s fears to his benefit. “My argument for keeping the press conferences...

    Democratic presidential candidate and former VP Joe Biden has been accused of being out of the limelight as the coronavirus pandemic shuts down the country. So his handlers said set ’em up, Joe, and scheduled a whirlwind of video appearances. So far, they’ve spotlighted his famous knack for stumbling into word salad. Fresh off an online appearance in which he waved off his first point about the pandemic as his teleprompter allegedly malfunctioned, Biden came to The View seeking redemption. He appeared via satellite to reveal how he would handle the current coronavirus crisis.
  • Joe Biden Torn Apart After ‘The View’ Appearance: He “Reminded Everyone Why He’s Been in Hiding”

    Joe Biden may have been met with a warm welcome from The View‘s co-hosts this morning, but the reception on social media was much more chilly. On Tuesday, Biden appeared on The View via satellite, and he laid out his “plan” for combatting coronavirus. Viewers at home were quick to point out that despite speaking primarily in platitudes, the former vice president still managed to bungle the appearance when he cautioned that “the cure” for COVID-19 “will make the problem worse, no matter what.” Come again? SNIP The View‘s co-hosts didn’t push Biden on the gaffe, but of course, Twitter...

    Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” is taking some leave due to concerns over the coronavirus, Variety reported Thursday. Behar, 77, reportedly announced that she would be taking time off from the show at a Thursday taping of an episode that will run Friday. Like several other live shows, "The View" has chosen to not allow studio audiences until the spread of the virus subsides. “I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy,” Behar said. “I don’t look my age, but I’m actually up there. The number makes me dizzy.” SNIP ABC did...

    Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., came out swinging on "The View" Thursday, asking co-host Joy Behar if she was wearing black to mourn the death of the Democratic Party after Wednesday's debate. "I was just wondering if you were wearing black as a consequence of, like, the death of the political left in the debate last night," he said. Behar responded by telling him not to "count the dead yet." Earlier in the show, Behar predicted that former Vice President Joe Biden would be the Democratic nominee after what she called a failed performance by former New York City Mayor MIchael...
  • Whoopi Goldberg Says AOC ‘Lost’ Her Over the Treatment of Older Democrats

    Whoopi Goldberg admonished Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her treatment of older Democrats during an appearance by the congresswoman on “The View” Wednesday. Goldberg said her excitement for AOC’s election fizzled out after the lawmaker “dismissed” older Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein. “I was very happy when you were elected because I thought it was a great step … and then you lost me,” Goldberg told Ocasio-Cortez during a polite back-and-forth, “because it felt like you were saying to people like me that I was too old and didn’t do enough.”
  • Buttigieg Touts Less Government, but only when it’s about Abortion and Infanticide

    DB Daily Update ^ | Karen Kataline
    The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece...

    They may not agree on much, but the hosts of The View, to a person, have always been on Joe Biden’s side. From the moment he officially announced his presidential bid early last year, the hosts vigorously defended him against allegations of inappropriate touching. Meghan McCain vehemently attacked his accusers of executing a “hatchet job.” Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg pushed back the criticism of his record on race and Joy Behar wondered aloud if Democrats could just “skip the primary” and anoint Biden the nominee. So when Biden appeared Thursday morning on The View following disastrous a fourth-place finish in Iowa...

    ABC News’ “The View” co-host Meghan McCain shot back Thursday when Whoopi Goldberg compared Mitt Romney to the late Sen. John McCain, her father, and told the panel Romney is nothing like her dad. Goldberg said Romney’s decision to break party lines Wednesday and vote to convict President Trump on one article of impeachment reminded her of another free-thinking Republican. “I’m just glad somebody stood up and said ‘no,’” Goldberg said. ”I’m going to give faith in him like I gave to your dad.”

  • 'The View' melts down as impeachment lawyer Alan Dershowitz defends Trump: 'I'm moving you on or cutting you off'

    "The View" erupted with testy moments on Wednesday as Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz defended President Trump against the co-hosts during a discussion about the ongoing Senate impeachment trial. Many of the co-hosts took issue with Dershowitz's answers, including Behar who, at one point, told the Trump impeachment defense attorney that his argument was "baloney." Co-host Whoopi Goldberg also cut off Dershowitz off as he attempted to give some historical background on whether impeachment could proceed without actual crimes. He was responding to co-host Joy Behar's claim that no other constitutional scholar agreed with him about needing a crime for...

    "The View" co-host Meghan McCain slammed the "performance art" of House Intelligence Committee chairman and leading House manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., during the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump, suggesting Schiff's dramatics are meant to indicate future political ambitions. After Schiff received praise by her daytime co-hosts, McCain began by expressing she feels like she "lives on a different planet" by not being enthralled by his opening arguments. "When I saw Adam Schiff, I thought he seemed pretty performative ... and that he's clearly trying to take over for Dianne Feinstein at some point," McCain said, referring to the California...

    The View host Joy Behar claimed Democratic voters would prefer to vote for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who recently suffered a heart attack, instead of a woman. Her comments came in response to co-host Sunny Hostin saying the previous 45 presidents have "all been men." "They'd rather vote for a 78-year-old socialist, who just had a heart attack, than a woman," said Behar. "I think that's probably accurate," replied Hostin. Sanders, 77, has found himself in the middle of a heated feud with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren after his campaign team released an internal document that instructed attacks on Warren's...

    Abby Huntsman announced on Monday she’s quitting “The View” to join her father, Jon Huntsman Jr., on his Utah gubernatorial campaign. But Page Six is told that the campaign isn’t the real reason for her exit from the ABC fixture, which has recently been rocked by a breakdown in the relationship between Meghan McCain and her fellow panelists. “It’s an unhealthy environment — just the way that things are handled during shows and how people deal with each other,” said an insider familiar with Huntsman’s thinking. “It’s intense.” “Abby made an issue [to executives] about the overall environment. She’s felt...
