Intelwars Joy Behar Nancy Pelosi President pelosi The View Videos

Joy Behar gleefully fantasizes about ‘President Nancy Pelosi’ during gushing interview with House speaker

Joy Behar, co-host on “The View,” was in virtual ecstasy while fantasizing about an imaginary world in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was president.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, Behar spoke to Pelosi in a livestream interview and she admitted that she’s “dreaming of the day when we say ‘President Nancy Pelosi.'”

“Nancy, I’m dreaming of the day when we say ‘President Nancy Pelosi,'” Behar told the 80-year-old House speaker. “I think that sounds really good.”

Pelosi appeared to revel in the compliment, and issued a throaty chuckle in response.

During the exchange, Behar discussed unnamed polls that she said show Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump, but admitted that she is still concerned that somehow the incumbent president will “steal” the 2020 presidential election.

“The polls are showing that Biden is ahead in key swing states,” Behar said. “It’s very encouraging in many ways — Pennsylvania, et cetera — but I’m still worried that they could steal this election. I know that the Russians are still involved. Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security just released a report warning that Russia is a key threat to the election. Now we knew this going into 2016 too, and we saw how that turned out.

“That’s why I’m not counting my chickens at all,” Behar fretted. “I’m still nervous. People have to vote, and we have to win in a landslide. … How concerned are you about that?”

‘Joe Biden will be inaugurated and Kamala Harris inaugurated’

Pelosi responded, promising Behar that Democrats would do their best to be prepared for the Nov. 3 election.

“Well, I’m concerned,” Pelosi admitted, “but my motto is ‘We don’t agonize, we organize.’ And I have no doubt that the president, in typical fashion, will lie, cheat, and steal to win this election, so we are prepared for that. I’m sorry to have to say that … but that is the reality.”

Pelosi added, “He’s trying to dismantle the Postal Service to undermine vote by mail. He’s welcoming — inviting practically — the Russian interference into our elections. But again, we’re ready. We’re ready, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that matter how he tries to declare victory, or undermine the Electoral College, or try to win in the House — he’s bragging now he’s going to win in the House — I will assure you of this. A free and fair election, Joe Biden will be inaugurated and Kamala Harris inaugurated.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Joy Behar Nursing home scandal Ny gov andrew cuomo Ted Cruz The View Videos

Sen. Ted Cruz triggers Joy Behar on ‘The View’ after he brings up Cuomo’s COVID-19 nursing home scandal

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) appeared on Monday’s episode of “The View” and explained what he said was a colossal COVID-19 failure on the part of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

He made the remarks in response to co-host Joy Behar’s concern over Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ announcement that he would be removing all COVID restrictions across the state.

What are the details?

During the later part of the broadcast, Behar accused Cruz of deflecting from the topic of DeSantis’ statewide announcement when he brought up Cuomo’s COVID-19 nursing home scandal.

In March, Cuomo drew wide condemnation after he ordered nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for COVID-19.

As Newsbusters’ Kristina Marsh pointed out, “As each host tried and failed to trap the Republican senator with liberal talking points [earlier in the show], Joy Behar lost her patience at the end of the interview when talking about shutdowns and coronavirus.”

“[Behar] fretted about how Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis had let bars and restaurants open back up and asked [Cruz] if Texas would do the same,” Marsh said.

“He said they won’t be closing anything going forward,” a clearly worried Behar told Cruz during the exchange.

Cruz responded by pointing out that he does support a reopening of the economy, adding that the COVID-19 death rate in Florida — and in his home state of Texas — has been comparatively low when pitted against death rates in Democratic states.

“New York in particular has led the country in death rate, and I think it had a lot to do with the Democratic governor there — Gov. Cuomo — sending people who had COVID into nursing homes,” he insisted.

Behar snapped, “That’s not true!” and attempted to talk over Cruz, but he apparently would not permit it.

“Well, the death rate [in New York] is three times as high as the death rate in Texas or Florida,” he stated.

A clearly upset Behar did not want to talk about New York and pressed, “I asked you about DeSantis. Answer me about DeSantis, please. I’m talking about Florida right now, not New York. New York got hit very early, and a lot of people were coming in without any kind of sanctions on it.”

Cruz, who apparently didn’t see the relevance of her remark about Gov. DeSantis, added, “The policy of the governors of New York and New Jersey of sending people who were COVID-positive into nursing homes was catastrophic. And it resulted in a horrific death rate.”

Behar fired back, “Deflection! You are deflecting, sir! You are deflecting the question!”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg was primed to pile on at that point and directed the responsibility to President Donald Trump.

“Had the man who is running the country right now given us this information in January when he had it — when we could have maybe done something a little differently — it might have worked differently,” Goldberg snapped. “I just wanted to point that out. It’s not about whose people died more. People died, and they didn’t have to.”

Intelwars Joy Behar Meghan McCain Ruth Bader Ginsburg Scotus nominees Supreme Court The View Videos

Joy Behar concedes Democrats’ SCOTUS loss: ‘We’ve lost that battle’

Joy Behar, co-host on “The View,” said Tuesday that Democrats have lost the fight for the Supreme Court.

What are the details?

Behar said on the daytime show that Republicans won the battle for the control of the Supreme Court during a segment about replacing late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday.

“You know, I was thinking about the Supreme Court, because we’ve lost that battle,” she admitted. “I don’t want to talk about the Republicans anymore. We’ve lost the battle. That doesn’t mean we lost the Senate. There are states up for grabs — Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas … and Arizona, too.”

Behar added, “Those states could become Democratic, help the Democrats win the Senate.”

She insisted that she personally doesn’t need to worry too much about what the Supreme Court does because she’s “white.”

“I don’t have to worry about the Supreme Court that much because I’m white. Because I’m post menopausal so I can’t get pregnant, thank God,” she continued. “I happen to be straight. I have money because I’ve been working on ‘The View’ for so many years.”

Behar pointed out that those in more precarious situations should worry about what the Supreme Court will be like in the coming years.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg voiced her agreement and admitted that she didn’t want to think about the Supreme Court all that much, either — but she couldn’t help taking a backhanded swipe at purported top SCOTUS pick, Amy Coney Barrett.

“Well, here’s what I’ll say about — you know, talking about the woman who has the seven kids,” Goldberg said. “She’s up for becoming a justice. You know, you can’t really Kavanaugh her because Kavanaugh was Kavanaughed because he was accused of rape and people wanted to make sure that that wasn’t the case. No one’s going to accuse her of anything. And I haven’t really seen people going after her for her religion.”

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney indicated Tuesday that he would vote to confirm a qualified Trump nominee, which would likely kill any chances Democrats had of obstructing the nomination.

Intelwars Meghan McCain President Donald Trump Ruth Bader Ginsberg SCOTUS Scotus appointment Scotus nominee The View Videos viral videos

Meghan McCain unloads on ‘The View’ over Democrats’ behavior ahead of SCOTUS nomination: Dems will do ‘anything and everything to smear any conservative’

Sparks flew on Monday’s broadcast of “The View” when the co-hosts discussed President Donald Trump’s plans to announce a nominee to replace late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by the end of the week.

Ginsburg died Friday at the age of 87 following recurring bouts of cancer.

What are the details?

Conservative co-host Meghan McCain squared off against her fellow co-hosts over the news, proclaiming that she backs Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) announcement that the Senate will vote on Ginsburg’s successor before the November general election.

“One of my biggest concerns is if we have a contested election in 2020, and it’s split like it was in 2000, we have to have a full court ruling on it,” she explained. “The potential for constitutional chaos is absolutely the most imminent it has been in my modern lifetime.”

McCain pointed out that while she agrees with her fellow co-hosts who said McConnell is a hypocrite over the announcement after he refused to confirm former President Barack Obama’s nominee in 2016, she believes that the circus surrounding Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation could occur once more due to political division and underhanded dealings.

“Democrats on their side will do anything and everything to smear any conservative,” she insisted.

Co-host Sara Haines insisted that the focus should not be on rushing a SCOTUS nomination in the 45 days preceding the election.

“In the shadow of what’s been left behind after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, the irony of what type of human she was, and what we’re seeing in our politicians is disheartening,” she said.

McCain fired back, “At the same time, you have people on the left who are screaming that they’re gonna pack the courts and create violence and you’re gonna see chaos that we’ve never seen if Mitch McConnell does this. Everyone is behaving badly across the board, and the deep politicizing that happened after she passed is true, and while you’re correct that the majority of Americans are against repealing Roe v. Wade, 47% of Americans are pro-life.”

“Every time I talk about it on this show, it’s received as if it’s this vast minority in the country,” McCain said. “It’s not. I’m telling you, for people who are pro-life, not never-Trumpers … for people like me, it is a meat and potatoes issue, much like guns. It will get people out [to vote], period.”

Haines then went on to read a quote from Amy Coney Barrett — purported to be a potential SCOTUS nominee — but McCain wasn’t having any of it.

“I would be very careful slandering her, Sara, before she’s even been put forth,” McCain warned. “This is what I’m talking about with the Kavanaugh stuff!”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg had to pull the plug on the segment, and, quickly cutting to commercial, yelled, “Everybody stop! We’re going. We’ll be back.”

Baltimore blackface Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Joy Behar Kimberly klacik Maryland The View

‘The View’ segment descends into chaos after GOP House candidate Kim Klacik calls out Joy Behar for blackface

An interview on “The View” with Kimberly Klacik, a Republican running for Congress in Maryland, ended badly after Klacik called out host Joy Behar for her blackface scandal.

Klacik is running in the 7th Congressional District in Maryland, a heavily Democratic district formerly served by the late Elijah Cummings, and has been endorsed by President Donald Trump.

When discussing President Trump’s COVID-19 response, Behar asked Klacik to answer for Trump’s admission to reporter Bob Woodward that he downplayed the virus early on.

“Excuse me, I have to say something to you,” Behar began. “He told Bob Woodward that it was a very serious issue. That it was airborne, and that it was terrible. Then he went out and told the American people, ‘Don’t wear masks, it’s all gonna go away. You have to put some blame on your president, I’m sorry. You’re putting it on something extraneous here. Talk to the point, please.”

“Is this Joy speaking?” Klacik responded. “The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago? Come on, Joy, I don’t think you should be asking these questions.”

Behar responded angrily to Klacik’s topic shift.

“Excuse me,” Behar interjected angrily. “The black community had my back. They know that that was not blackface, that was an homage. Oh, please. Just answer the question.”

As Behar was talking, Klacik responded that the black community had her back as well, leading host Sunny Hostin to jump in.

“The black community has your back?” Hostin interjected, incredulously. “The black community has your back? The black community did not vote for you. What planet are you living on? What planet are you living on? Wow.”

As Klacik attempted to explain the circumstances around the special election that she lost in February to Democrat Kweisi Mfume, who she is challenging again, Hostin turns around in her chair and Behar dismissively ends the interview.

“Listen, Kim, good luck to you,” Behar said as she ended the interview.

A photo of Behar wearing darkening makeup and dressing as a “beautiful African woman” in the 1970s was released by The Wrap in 2019.

Black lives matter riots CNN CNN bias Intelwars Kenosha wisconsin riots Meghan McCain Meghan mccain slams cnn The View Videos

Sunny Hostin says violent riots are ‘manufactured by the Trump campaign.’ Meghan McCain hits back and puts blame on radicals — and the media.

Meghan McCain, co-host on “The View,” issued a scathing rebuke of mainstream media — specifically CNN — and its coverage of the nationwide riots over police conduct.

Her remarks came after fellow co-host Sunny Hostin said that much of the violence has been “manufactured by the Trump campaign.”

What are the details?

On Monday, McCain slapped much of the media for downplaying the riots’ violence and refusing to outright condemn the madness.

Co-host Sunny Hostin began by discussing a recent Fox News poll that found that the majority of surveyed voters said Black Lives Matter demonstrations are riots — not protests.

“If you really look at the facts, 93%, 93% of protests are nonviolent, nonviolent,” Hostin insisted. “And, in fact, when Trump has put in force, has put in federal enforcement, out of those 93%, the violence ratchets up.”

Hostin continued, insisting that much of the violence has been “manufactured by the Trump campaign.”

“And so more than 5% of the protests, actually, that are linked to the Black Lives Matter movement that was met by force by authorities compared to 1% of other sorts of demonstrations like COVID protests or protests about being unhappy about not being able to, you know, go to the barbershop,” she said. “And so this is manufactured by the Trump campaign, and I just wish that people understood that and knew that and just looked up the real facts about protests in this country.”

‘Radical Antifa people in this country’

McCain, clearly not having any of it, responded by telling Hostin that there should be no violence during protests and that settling for 7% is unacceptable.

“People are coming on and saying, ‘Oh, only 7% of the protesting is violent,'” she said. “Well, I wouldn’t get on a plane that had a 7% chance of crashing. We’re talking about deaths in the country. There’s been around 34 deaths as a result of protesting and rioting since this all started at the beginning of this summer.”

McCain said that much of the media — “particularly CNN” — has succeeded in downplaying such violence.

“I think the media, particularly CNN, has done a real disservice by trying to downplay the violence so much,” she insisted. “I mean, the idea of a peaceful protest with a video of a building on fire, people being shot, has been blasted all over social media all summer, and I think when you have a group of people in the media that want to act like nothing is going on.”

McCain said that the left should be held to account for the out-of-control demonstrations and violence taking place in U.S. cities.

“I think there are radical Antifa people in this country, just like there’s radical people on the right, and in the same way that I’m held to accountability for every crazy Trump supporter that does something crazy in the country, I don’t understand why people on the left aren’t taking accountability for some of this as well,” she mused.

Black trump voters Intelwars Leo Terrell Racims Social Media Sunny Hostin The View Trump Supporters Videos

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin says blacks are ‘props’ for Republicans. Black civil rights attorney Leo Terrell — a decadeslong liberal — cuts her down.

Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell says Sunny Hostin — a co-host on “The View” — should be ashamed of herself after she said black conservatives were “props’ for the Republican Party.

What’s a brief history here?

During a panel discussion earlier this week, Hostin said she wasn’t surprised that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was losing support among Hispanic voters in Florida, and took it even further.

“I actually wasn’t surprised to hear it because Cubans in Florida typically do vote Republican,” Hostin said of the news. “That wasn’t a surprise to me. It wasn’t a surprise to me that black voters are overwhelmingly the backbone of the Democratic Party — 83% in favor of Biden.”

She continued, “[Y]ou hear all of this coming from the Trump campaign about how black people have nothing to lose and they are gonna overwhelmingly vote for Trump, and you had all the black people props all over the RNC talking about all the stuff they’ve done for the black community. You heard [former White House press secretary] Sarah Sanders yesterday talking about all the things that have been done for the black community by the Trump administration.”

What did Terrell say in response to Hostin’s inflammatory remarks?

Terrell appeared on Thursday night’s episode of “Hannity,” where he blasted Hostin for what he said was a terribly narrow-minded worldview.

“See, the Democrats’ playbook is no black can leave the plantation,” he said. “We have to remain, if not, we will be called names. I’ve been called names recently, but here’s the point: I want to speak directly to Sunny from ‘The View.’ I have news for you, Sunny. Tim Scott is not a prop. Alice Johnson is not a prop. And the wife of David Dorn is not a prop.”

“I have 30 years invested with the left side, I know what the left side has done,” he continued. “I freely decided to vote Republican. No pay, it’s because I love this country. … When you make this argument, as a lawyer, you should be ashamed of yourself to call black Republicans a ‘prop.’ That is a personal attack.”

Covid-19 vaccine Intelwars Ivanka Trump Ivanka trump coronavirus vaccine Joy Behar The View Trump vaccine

Ivanka Trump calls Joy Behar’s bluff on COVID-19 vaccine — and says she’ll take it live on ‘The View’

Ivanka Trump says she’s not only ready and willing to take a COVID-19 vaccine — she’ll take it live on “The View” to call co-host Joy Behar’s bluff.

Behar said Wednesday that she had serious doubts about the efficacy of a rushed vaccine and would not take any vaccine approved by the Trump administration unless the president’s daughter took it first.

What are the details?

In a Thursday tweet directed at the liberal TV co-host, the president’s daughter
wrote,”Deal @JoyVBehar. I would come on your show to do so. I trust the FDA and so should all Americans. Vanquishing this virus should be our collective top priority.”

‘It’s not a simple thing to do’

On Wednesday, Behar suggested that any Trump administration-approved vaccine for COVID-19 could be faulty and unsafe.

The Trump administration has furiously been working to get a coronavirus vaccine approved and distributed to the American public by the end of 2020.

“[President Donald Trump] will push anything to get re-elected,” Behar spat. “Don’t fall for it. And by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”

Earlier in the segment, Behar explained, “As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America — in case we don’t know this, because I looked all this up for you — the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years, and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries. It was developed initially in 1796 when they started to think about it, and it became useful in the 1950s. OK? It’s not a simple thing to do.”

Fox News reported on Thursday that a source purporting to be close to the production “would welcome Ivanka Trump [on the show] and attempted to book her prior to the start of the current season.”

Behar has yet to respond to the first daughter’s tweet.

Candace cameron Candace cameron bure Christian celebrities Christianity Fox News Intelwars Interviews Jesus gospel Sharing jesus The View Videos

Former ‘View’ co-host says she’d rather share Jesus with people than return to the hit ABC show

Actress Candace Cameron Bure, who spent nearly a year as a co-host on “The View,” told Fox News that she would much rather spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ than return to the long-running daytime TV show.

What are the details?

Bure, 44, told the outlet that she has no interest in returning to the show, which she appeared on between 2015 and 2016.

“I just don’t publicly want to talk about politics,” she reasoned. “Not because I don’t believe that my viewpoints and opinions are important, but I would much rather share Jesus with people. That’s really my passion.”

Bure, an outspoken Christian, added that she’d sooner focus on sharing her faith rather than engaging in discourse that has been increasingly proven to lead to further and further divide in America.

“I don’t want to get into the political debate because it is just about division and separation,” Bure explained. “And I want to learn. I want to be [part of] a conversation about how to build a bridge.”

What else?

In April, Bure said producers of the hit show approached her several times about co-hosting duties before she agreed in 2015.

“The funny thing is, sometimes what you end up doing is what you least expected,” she told Good Housekeeping in an interview. “I never pursued that show, but they pursued me, and it was very unexpected. I tried to say no, I did say no several times.”

She admitted that she always loved a challenge, so it eventually made sense for her to take producers up on their offer to feature her on the show.

“I love to grow and be challenged,” Bure said. “And that’s exactly what it was. So I was up for the challenge and I’m glad that I did it.”

On her decision to take part in the show, the conservative Christian concluded, “I am really happy for the experience. It helped me grow a lot.”

Auto zones Daytime tv Domestic terrorist Intelwars Joy Behar President Donald Trump The View Whoopi Goldberg

Joy Behar loses it and calls President Trump a ‘domestic terrorist’ — Whoopi has to talk her down from the ledge

Joy Behar, liberal co-host on “The View,” referred to President Donald Trump as a “domestic terrorist” during Thursday’s airing of the hit daytime TV show.

Fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg, however, reined in Behar and said that she surely couldn’t mean such a thing.

What are the details?

The popular panel of women on Thursday discussed the protests in Seattle, which took center stage in this week’s news. At one point this week, demonstrators took over Seattle’s City Hall, and later declared one area neighborhood — “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or CHAZ — as a police-free autonomous zone.

Trump railed against Washington state’s government about how it has been handling protesters and rioters, and specifically this week, referred to people who have “taken over Seattle” as “domestic terrorists.”

“[Trump] doesn’t help anything,” Behar spat. “As a matter of fact, he has the nerve to call anybody a domestic terrorist. He’s the domestic terrorist. He’s the one who’s been impeached for obstructing justice in this country.”

She wasn’t done there.

“He’s worried about the people in Seattle? By the way — if he wants to do something in Seattle, somebody better show him where it is on the map. I doubt he even knows where it is. Get back in your bunker. Get back in the bunker,” she ranted.

What did Whoopi do next?

Goldberg, seemingly taken aback by Behar’s remarks, attempted to bring the train back onto the tracks.

“Joy, I need you to clear up one thing: You were not calling the president a domestic terrorist. You were just saying that his take on this is a little crazier than you thought, is that right?” Goldberg prompted.

Clearly frustrated by having to discuss the president in a rational manner, Behar groused, “Um, yeah. I guess. I mean, I’m not calling anybody names like he does. It’s just that it seems ironic that he would be calling people domestic terrorists. I mean, I’ll get in trouble for calling him a domestic terrorist, [but] he won’t get in trouble for calling innocent people domestic terrorists.”

Behar relented, however, and said that she misspoke.

“That’s the irony of the situation,” she complained. “So I take it back. I take it back.”

Black Lives Matter Colin Kaepernick Intelwars NFL Nfl kneeling protests Nobel Peace Prize Roger Goodell The View

‘The View’ co-hosts laud Colin Kaepernick: He deserves back pay and an apology — oh, and a Nobel Peace Prize, too

Co-hosts on “The View” expressed their love and appreciation for NFL player-turned-activist Colin Kaepernick on Tuesday.

What are the details?

At least two of the show’s co-hosts lauded Kaepernick’s activism efforts amid — and leading up to — the George Floyd protests.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said that Kaepernick — who has not played in the NFL since spearheading the national anthem protest movement in 2016 — should be rehired in the NFL, and should receive back pay along with a comprehensive apology.

She also insisted that Kaepernick, an outspoken racial equality advocate, should receive a Nobel Peace Prize.

“I think he’s not only owed an apology,” she said. “I think he’s owed his job. I think he’s owed back pay. I think he deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. I think what is fascinating about it is when you listen to [NFL Commissioner] Roger Goodell’s mea culpa, he mentions everything. He says we are wrong. We should have listened. Athletes in the league are now allowed to take a knee. We support peaceful protests. He mentions everything except the name of the man who started this peaceful protest.”

Hostin added that Kaepernick’s gesture of taking a knee during the protests has become the symbol of the racial equality movement.

“Taking the knee has become the symbol of these protests. We see it just all over the country,” she said. “We see it actually internationally now. I think it’s shameful that people were allowed to co-opt that movement and make it about the flag and make it something it was never about. It really is just shameful. I’m sort of shocked that Roger Goodell never mentioned [Kaepernick’s] name.”

Co-host Joy Behar later added that she feels Kaepernick isn’t so dissimilar from boxing star Muhammad Ali, and also “gave up his livelihood for a principle.”

“Well, you know, Sunny just said Colin Kaepernick is really the hero of this and should be rewarded instead of thrown out of his job,” Behar said.

“I think that Roger Goodell and the NFL need to get behind history and not be on the wrong side of it,” Behar insisted. “I say that about a lot of people. Mitch McConnell and the rest of them, who are on the wrong side of history right now. They will pay the price in years to come.”

Former president barack obama Intelwars Meghan McCain President Donald Trump The View

‘The View’ co-hosts gloat over Obama’s anti-Trump remarks — but Meghan McCain serves an immediately sobering shutdown

A clearly unamused “The View” co-host Meghan McCain rained on show’s parade Monday, as three of the four co-hosts gleefully celebrated former President Barack Obama’s critical remarks on President Donald Trump.

On Saturday, Obama blasted the Trump administration for its handling of the COVID-19 crisis in America. Sunday saw an irate Trump firing back, calling Obama a “grossly incompetent” president.

What are the details?

Co-hosts Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Whoopi Goldberg all lauded Obama’s remarks against Trump during Monday’s broadcast.

Behar, who said Obama’s remarks made her feel “giddy,” stated, “I’m really looking forward to watching the … brilliant law professor take on the quasi-literate reality show host. This is going to be good!”

Hostin pointed out that Obama’s speech took her “back to a time where we had [a president] that was compassionate and empathetic and reassuring, and funny, intelligent, honest curious.”

“[T]hat’s what a president is supposed to sound like,” Hostin gushed.

Goldberg said that Trump deserved the commentary, and that people reacted positively because they “miss” Obama.

McCain adds proper perspective

McCain then put things into perspective for many of the long-running show’s viewers.

“Obviously everyone on the left has basically appointed President Obama as nothing short of a saint, and obviously I feel different, as most Republicans and conservatives do,” she said. “I will say… the culture war that I believe is real and is raging in this country I believe was ushered in with his administration and then exacerbated in the Trump Administration.”

McCain pointed out that despite the hype surrounding Obama’s remarks, she believes that Trump would win a re-election if the 2020 presidential election were held today.

“And if the election were held today, I do believe Trump would be re-elected and I think at a certain point, we have to start talking to each other in the middle, and we have to start talking about the faults on both sides because he was not a perfect president, and I don’t think perfect presidents would have ushered in the era of Trump,” she concluded.

Christianity Faith Intelwars Paula Faris The View

Paula Faris explains why she quit her co-hosting gig at ‘The View’ and left a powerful career behind

Paula Faris was at the height of her career when she abruptly decided to leave it all behind.

Despite sweeping success as co-host of “The View” and co-anchor of “Good Morning America: Weekend Edition,” Faris was burnt out, exhausted, and on a quest to refocus on what truly mattered.

“I was at the height of my career … and I really felt like I was walking in my … God-given calling,” she recently told “The Billy Hallowell Podcast.” “And I leaned in so hard to what we’re told to lean into — to work and vocation … that I burnt out.”

Listen to Faris reveal why she walked away from her dream job:

Faris, author of the new book, “Called Out: Why I Traded Two Dream Jobs for a Life of True Calling,” said her career was “soaring,” but that her personal life was failing.

From her marriage to her health, nothing was where she wanted it to be. Faris, a longtime Christian, said she simply “didn’t have an ease” in her spirit, and that she had become consumed by her job.

“I knew that I had taken it to an unhealthy place,” she said. “I had become addicted to what I did, addicted to the accolades … accomplishment, and the high [of] the spotlight.”

Faris added, “It became about what I was doing, not who I was doing it for.”

(Read also: 10 Comforting Bible Verses About Sadness)

And before her departure from her hosting duties, it all came to a head. Amid a flurry of chaos, the journalist faced a miscarriage, an emergency surgery, a concussion, a head-on car accident, and a bout with the flu that turned to pneumonia.

“My life just felt like it was falling apart,” Faris said.

The personal pandemonium and the recognition that her career had overtaken everything else left Faris with the realization that she had misplaced her identity.

“My identity had been so misplaced in what I did,” she said. “Here I am a professing Christian and it wasn’t good enough to just be ‘Paula.'”

So, the TV host stopped, paused, and did the unthinkable: She quit both of her dream jobs. At first, the transition was quite difficult.

“I didn’t know what to do with myself,” she said. “I had a full-on identity crisis.”

But Faris said she started getting herself rooted back into the Bible and began to surround herself with the right voices who spoke into her life about what truly matters.

Over time, it all came together. And now she’s sharing her insights and realizations in “Called Out,” a new book that not only tells her story, but also inspires others not to fall into the same pitfalls of misplacing significance and identity.

“God’s calling me into a different space now,” Faris said of her journey. “My worth is not my work.”

And for anyone looking for guidance in their own lives, she offered an encouraging word: listen to God.

“God speaks to you. He speaks to you through people … and that song on the radio … through scriptures and sermons,” Faris said. “You just have to listen for God’s voice.”

‘The View’ squares off with Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther — and it gets ugly, but Luther stands her ground

Sunny Hostin, co-host on “The View,” tore into Dallas beauty salon owner Shelley Luther on Monday and accused her of contributing to the uptick in COVID-19 across the state.

Needless to say, Luther wasn’t having any of it.

Luther went viral for reopening her Dallas beauty salon and then refusing to close, insisting that she needed to feed her family and could not be out of work. A judge initially sentenced Luther to seven days in prison and fined $7,000 for violating state-mandated stay-at-home measures. Several officials, however, including Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott, demanded her early release.

What are the details?

During a Monday segment on the ABC show, Hostin spoke to Luther and said that people like the beauty salon owner, who reopened her business and then refused to close during the pandemic, contributed to the overall rise of the coronavirus in the Lone Star State.

“Shelley, coronavirus cases are already rising in Texas and across the country where restrictions have been lifted, and you’re worried about your staff and your customers,” Hostin said. “I mean, I would assume you’re worried about your staff and your customers getting sick, since there’s now an uptick because of people not following the rules like yourself.”

Luther took the remark in stride and responded by pointing out that cases in Texas, and likely in other areas across the country, simply seemed to increase because there is now easier access to COVID-19 testing.

“What we need to look at is the number of deaths, if that is plateauing at all, and to make sure that we have room in our hospital beds,” Luther answered. “And Texas has plenty of room in their beds and are able to care for the people that need to come in at this time.”

She continued, “As a matter of fact, there’s doctors and nurses getting furloughed because there’s not enough work.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg later took the floor, and said that Luther would best be served speaking up for people who are not receiving the testing or treatment necessary to help quash the COVID-19 outbreak.

“I would like to hear you put some of that fury and that passion toward the governments that didn’t take care of the people, because that’s what they’re supposed to do,” Goldberg suggested. “So I want you to get out there and fight for all those folks who are not getting what they’re supposed to be getting, and not getting the information that they need, and then I think I’ll feel better about watching you tell people ‘I’m feeding my people.'”

Daytime tv Intelwars Joy Behar President Donald Trump The View

Joy Behar says she won’t leave her house till November due to COVID-19 — and Trump, of course

“The View” co-host Joy Behar says she won’t go out in public until at least November — mainly because of COVID-19, but also because of President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

During a Friday panel discussion, piped in from the co-hosts’ at-home livestreams, Behar discussed the conditions in America.

On Friday, ABC News/Ipsos announced a poll finding that the majority of Americans aren’t ready for the immediate reopening of America.

Pointing to the poll, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “A lot of people don’t seem to be ready to step outside yet according to a survey. Forty percent say they plan to avoid public spaces as much as possible until long after everything is over, but I don’t think you can actually do it like that.”

The poll found that Americans, “by a large 30-point margin,” are resistant to reopening the U.S. in the immediate days.

“[N]early two-thirds of Americans said they more closely align with the view that opening the country now is not advantageous since it will result in a higher death toll, while slightly more than one-third agree with the belief that an immediate reopening is beneficial to minimize the negative impact on the economy,” a portion of the report read.

Behar said that until everyone in her space was tested for coronavirus — including people in places she might deign to visit — she would be staying under elective lockdown.

“I’m prepared,” Behar boasted, “I think I’m going to have to stay put at least until November when Trump is out of office because he is not — he’s not putting the tests out there.”

She continued, “Until everybody gets tested or certainly people that I’m going to be visiting or places that I’m going to go to, I am not leaving this house.”

Meghan McCain refuses to host ‘The View’ with Elisabeth Hasselbeck over her coronavirus prayer comments

Meghan McCain said that she would refuse to co-host “The View” with Elisabeth Hasselbeck because of her comments telling people to pray against the coronavirus pandemic.

McCain made the comments on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“Somebody actually sent me a screenshot of my face when she said that,” McCain said to Cohen.

“I took this virus seriously from the very beginning, and I thought a lot of this rhetoric was really dangerous. I think it’s really, really unfortunate and dangerous that she said that,” she added.

Hasselbeck had returned to the show in early March and commented that people needed to pray against the coronavirus in addition to taking personal precautions.

“I think there can be a fine line between what is precaution, what is taking precaution, and what is panic,” said Hasselbeck on the previous show. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows. We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it stops in its tracks.”

McCain can be seen in the video grimacing at Hasselbeck’s comment.

Later McCain accused her of putting out misinformation about coronavirus.

“I don’t need to co-host with her again, and it’s unfortunate, because I’ve been a huge fan for a long time,” McCain said. “Anybody who is screwing around with this virus and putting out sort of misinformation, I don’t really have a lot of time for right now.”

There are nearly 900,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., with more than 50,000 deaths.

Here’s the video of Hasselbeck’s comments:

Coronavirus Pandemic COVID-19 Daytime tv Intelwars Joy Behar Protesters Stay-at-home protesters The View

‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar likens lockdown protests to terrorism: ‘Terrorists … bring guns to things’

“The View” co-host Joy Behar said that gun-toting protesters were like terrorists for bringing their weapons to protest lockdown orders.

What are the details?

During Monday’s broadcast, Behar blasted Americans engaging in the protest of stay-at-home orders, and suggested they leave their guns at home if they want to demonstrate.

During a segment, Behar — blaming “right-wing media” — said that while it is understandable people are upset about closed state economies, it was inexcusable to protest in public amid the COVID-19 crisis.

“These people are being egged on by right-wing media,” she insisted. “People like Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh. And why are you bringing guns to a rally? You want to call yourself protesters, leave your guns home. Those are terrorists who bring guns to things. To rallies. I don’t trust that at all. And don’t listen to these people.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin, however, said that President Donald Trump was to blame for inciting an insurrection as well as condoning violence.

“What really disturbed me was the president’s tweets, you know, you have the president saying things like ‘Liberate Virginia’ and then also, in the same sentence, bringing up the Second Amendment,” Hostin said. “And, to Joy’s point, you saw protesters with guns, and I think, you know, he’s in a sense, implying an incited — an insurrection.”

She continued, “I think the argument can be made that he is inciting violence by these tweets. He’s inciting government insurrection, and many are saying, ‘Well, it’s his free speech,’ but the Supreme Court has found many times that if you are inciting lawlessness that’s leading to violence, that that type of speech isn’t protected.”

Hostin pointed out that she was “shocked” that Trump would be “inciting this kind of behavior,” and “inciting these protests.”

What else?

Behar later turned the focus back on the media, and said that Limbaugh and Jones were both part of an “extreme right-wing media” that is to blame for the insurrection.

“There’s so much, you know, lying and negativity coming out of this extreme right wing media, you know, between Limbaugh and Infowars and all that other stuff, that it’s very hard for the media to counteract all of that,” she fretted.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Face coverings Intelwars Racism Sunny Hostin The View

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin is paranoid that mask-wearing will result in racial profiling, arrests

Sunny Hostin, co-host on “The View,” said this week that COVID-19 guidelines encouraging public mask-wearing could be a detriment to black men.

What are the details?

During Friday’s broadcast of the hit ABC show, Hostin said, “Something that I have been thinking about, because you see all of these cases that have been coming up, especially about black men wearing masks and then being racially profiled and being pulled over and arrested.”

She pointed out a recent news item in which a police officer handcuffed a black doctor who was on his way to hand out tents to Miami’s homeless population. The incident is currently under investigation.

“There was an article about a black doctor in Miami that was handcuffed because he was taking some things out of his truck,” she said. “I have a friend saying he won’t wear a bandana, he’s going to wear something like a pig mask so that he’s not profiled, so that he doesn’t scare anyone.”

“For black men or Latino men, I think there is a fear that if you follow the guidelines, which is wear a mask when you’re outside, will that lead to racial profiling? And so it’s a real concern in certain communities,” she insisted.

Whoopi Goldberg chimed in, “Better to wear the mask and let people figure out if they’re afraid of you or don’t wear the mask and know that they’re gonna be afraid. I pose that to the people who are nervous about seeing black men in masks.”

Earlier in April, the Centers for Disease Control directed the American public to wear face coverings when they leave the house in order to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus pandemic.

Some governors — including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) — have made the suggestion a mandate in their states.

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Michigan governor Michigan protest Protests The View

‘The View’ complains about ‘racist’ Michigan protest, blames Fox News: Willing to ‘sign away their right to treatment’ too?

Women on “The View” blasted Michigan’s “racist” protests, and blamed Fox News and its hosts for the demonstrations.

Thousands of Michiganders took to the streets Wednesday to protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s extension of social distancing measures, which includes a ban on visiting other homes within the state.

The protest was dubbed Operation Gridlock, and you can read more about it here.

What are the details?

Co-host Sunny Hostin said that while she agreed Whitmer may be encroaching on government overreach territory, it didn’t mean people had to turn it into a “racist protest.”

“I was trying to figure out why there were Confederate flags flying around during the … alleged protest. Just because I couldn’t figure out what that had to do with the coronavirus,” she said.

“If you are indeed upset about the stay-at-home order, I can understand that, because it is probably, I think, the most restrictive in the country, and people are very concerned about it,” Hostin added. “But I guess I just didn’t understand the manner in which it was done. … I thought rather than it becoming a stay-at-home order protest, it seemed to become some sort of racist protest.”

Co-host Meghan McCain said she couldn’t stop thinking about how restrictive the measure actually was, pointing out that the order bans leaving your home for home improvement supplies including garden tools and seeds.

“Gov. Whitmer needs to lean back on some of these restrictions because people are doing the best they can to entertain themselves at home, and if you want to repaint your house, that’s certainly one of the safest things that I think you can be doing right now,” McCain said.

Not to be outdone, co-host Joy Behar added, “I would like to ask [the protesters] if they’re willing to sign away their right to treatment if and when they get infected. Are you going to say, ‘I don’t need a ventilator because I thought I should go out and defy the governor’s order’?”

She added, “And I would like to know if people in states who are following the guidelines like us in New York, can be sure those people don’t come here. They blocked an ambulance the other day. Can’t they be charged and arrested for that? I understand the fact that, you know, they can’t get their veggies, but hello. We’re talking about this disease being way more infecting and worse than they even thought, you know?”

Behar concluded by taking a shot at Fox News and its conservative hosts.

“By the way, they’re watching Fox a little too much. They’re watching Laura Ingraham, who tweeted ‘Time to get your freedom back.’ And then the brilliant Jeanine Pirro. In early March, she was parroting Trump that the infection rate would drop as the weather warms. I mean, this is who they’re listening to! So, again, do you say ‘I won’t get the treatment if I get the virus’? That’s my question.”

‘The View’s’ Joy Behar tries to get Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom to blast Trump — but he hits back with only praise for the president

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) appeared on “The View” Friday, where he sang President Donald Trump’s praises over the COVID-19 outbreak.

What are the details?

During an exchange about coronavirus in the U.S., co-host Joy Behar asked if Newsom was sucking up to President Trump in order to avoid retribution.

Newsom, however, lauded the president’s efforts as “proactive” and refused to say anything negative about him.

“Governor, it’s no secret that you’ve had a combative relationship with Trump in the past, but lately, you’ve been praising him for the help he’s giving,” Behar said. “Of course, you have to, because look at how he treats governors who don’t kiss the ring. The governor of Washington, the governor of Michigan, he said they were not appreciative and told Mike Pence, ‘Don’t call them back.’ Do you feel like you have to feed this guy’s ego to get the respirators, to get the PPEs? Is that what’s going on?”

Newsom admitted that he’s had issues with the president in the past and has had differences of opinion as well.

“Let me just acknowledge the frame of your question,” he responded. “We’re involved in over 68 lawsuits with the Trump administration, and so there’s no question we have had our differences of opinion on many issues, but I just want to remind you that you and many others that maybe are not aware of this.

“We have been at this since late January. California got a head start in many respects, where no one was really paying much attention. We started working with the administration directly to get these repatriated flights from mainland China into the state of California. Many states turned their back on those flights and those repatriation missions. California embraced them,” he continued.

“We also had that Grand Princess, that large cruise ship, where we worked very collaboratively with the federal government and developed strong relationships of trust with emergency planning and how we can bring those passengers back into our diverse communities and all across the rest of the country,” he added.

“As a consequence of that, our relationship began earlier than most. And so from that perspective, all I can say is that, from my perspective, the relationship has been strong,” Newsom noted. “I’m not doing it to kiss the ring — I’m not doing it in a way, you know, I’m just being forthright with the president. He returns calls, he reaches out, he’s been proactive.”

Newsom concluded, “We got that Mercy ship down here in Los Angeles. That was directly because he sent it down here. Two thousand medical units came to the state of California, these FMS, these field medical stations. That’s been very, very helpful, and to the extent, we’re going to need more, and I’ll let you know in a few weeks if that relationship continues.”

‘The View’ issues rare praise for President Donald Trump’s coronavirus stance and ensuing remarks

The women on “The View” praised President Donald Trump for his stance on the COVID-19 outbreak sweeping the nation and the rest of the world.

What are the details?

During a Tuesday press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak, Trump said that his administration projects at least 100,000 to 240,000 Americans could die from COVID-19.

“We’re going to go through a very tough two weeks,” Trump said during the briefing.

On Wednesday, “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “It’s nice to know that he’s caught up with the rest of the country, because while everyone has been, you know, at home trying to cope with all of this, we have been aware that it’s going to be a tough time ahead. Is this the honest account that we’ve needed to hear from him from the start?”

Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in, “I think perhaps now we’re hearing from the administration the gravity that we needed to hear from the administration probably in January or February. I’m happy in a sense that we’re hearing that gravity, but I think we needed to hear it a long time ago.”

Co-host Sara Haines added that she approves of the president’s tenor in discussing the severity of the outbreak.

“I felt good hearing the more serious tone [from the president],” she responded.

“It’s easy to get wrapped up in it, in the anxiety, the fear, the numbers, and so there was a little moment of gloom that all these people, even if we all act perfectly, they were quoting numbers of, you know, over six figures — over 100,000 — that even if we all behave perfectly, we will probably see pass,” she continued. “And my heart went to just the deaths themselves, but also that so many people are dying alone.”

She added, “That really broke my heart, because the one thing you hope when you pass or someone you love passes is that it’s easy, it’s pain-free, and that you’re by their side. So hearing that kind of brought the human level to me. It was very heavy.”

What else?

Haines pointed out that it’s been difficult in her own house, so she can respect the president’s leveling with the public about the dangers of COVID-19.

“It also reminded me that in the beginning in our household, we kept saying, ‘It doesn’t matter if we can’t figure this out. Hopefully it will be a limited run.’ Now, as you see, you know a month, two more months, we’re kind of feeling the heat of figuring out how to run our household successfully and be the best versions of ourselves for the kids while also, you know, informing them in age-appropriate terms,” she concluded. “So it’s a lot. I think today is one of those days where I’m feeling a little heavier about all of it, but I was happy to hear a serious tone because I think that’s lining up with the facts.”

Sunny Hostin tries to bait Mark Cuban into Trump-bashing while on ‘The View’ — but Cuban won’t do it: ‘I’m not gonna throw him under the bus’

Sunny Hostin, co-host on “The View,” attempted to bait billionaire Mark Cuban three times into attacking President Donald Trump over his COVID-19 response.

Three times, Cuban refused.

What are the details?

Cuban appeared via video on Tuesday’s broadcast to discuss the coronavirus pandemic gripping the U.S. and the rest of the world.

“You know, in January, though, experts were raising the alarm about the coronavirus to President Trump, and some say that his refusal to respond quickly, efficiently, appropriately enough cost lives, American lives,” she said. “What are your thoughts about his leadership during the pandemic?”

Cuban responded by saying he believed the president was doing the best of his ability.

“You know,” he began, “I’m not a fan of President Trump, but I’m not going to rip on him either, because any senator could have stood up and said something and screamed loud. Any congressperson could have. I mean, nobody did. I didn’t have high expectations from President Trump, but I’m not going to throw him under the bus.”

When it was clear that Hostin wasn’t getting what she was looking for, she attempted a more direct approach.

“Trump’s approval ratings match his all-time high — 49% — the highest mark since he’s been in office,” she said. “Are we underestimating how Americans are viewing his handling of this crisis?”

Cuban was unmoved.

“No,” he responded. “You know, he’s doing the best he can, and here’s what I’ll say, and I’m not a fan of his, but what’s real is real. When you have imperfect information, you make imperfect decisions. We’re not in a ready, aim, fire mode. That makes it tough. No matter what he did, it’s going to be wrong for some people.”

Hostin, determined, attempted one last time to encourage Cuban to attack Trump.

“Mark, you know, many people are calling Governor Cuomo ‘President Cuomo’ at this point for the way he’s leading New York state during this pandemic, but President Trump berated him saying, he needs to do more … Is this how President Trump should be spending his time?” she asked. “Criticizing the governor of one of the hardest hit states?”

Although he agreed personal attacks were unnecessary, Cuban reiterated a third time that he would not take the bait.

“There’s no good reason just to rip on, you know, I’m ripping on politicians generically, but the decisions that have been made particularly from the president, he is who he is. I’m not just going to stand around and tear him apart,” Cuban insisted. “President Trump can tweet about whatever he wants. I’m looking to see people doing work, and are we trying to solve things coming out of the government? Yes, we are. That’s what I focus on.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Daytime tv Intelwars President Donald Trump The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg suggests it’s the Trump administration’s fault that Americans are under quarantine

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host on “The View,” said that U.S. citizens would not be stuck in their homes under self-quarantine if America had decent leadership.

What are the details?

During the show’s Friday broadcast, Goldberg said that a lack of leadership all but guaranteed Americans would be under lock and key in their homes to wait out the COVID-19 pandemic.

Co-host Sunny Hostin, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, insisted that Americans were under fire because they were caught unaware. She explained that Americans were not on guard because their president insisted that COVID-19 was a “hoax” — a suggestion that the president has vehemently denied.

In February, the president, instead, said that Democrats were politicizing the coronavirus outbreak and weaponizing it against his administration. For his part, Trump simply insisted that Democrats’ criticism of his administration’s response to it was a hoax in itself.

Here’s what he said at the time (emphasis added):

Now the Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. You know that, right? Coronavirus. They’re politicizing it. We did one of the great jobs. You say, ‘How’s President Trump doing?’ They go, ‘Oh, not good, not good.’ They have no clue. They don’t have any clue. They can’t even count their votes in Iowa, they can’t even count. No they can’t. They can’t count their votes.

One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia. That didn’t work out too well. They couldn’t do it. They tried the impeachment hoax. That was on a perfect conversation. They tried anything, they tried it over and over, they’ve been doing it since you got in. It’s all turning, they lost, it’s all turning. Think of it. Think of it. And this is their new hoax. But you know, we did something that’s been pretty amazing. We’re 15 people [cases of coronavirus infection] in this massive country. And because of the fact that we went early, we went early, we could have had a lot more than that.

What else?

“[Americans] listened to the president, who called it a hoax,” Hostin insisted. “There are lives at stake.”

Goldberg then went on to put the blame squarely on “leadership.”

“The interesting thing about all of this is whatever channel you’re watching, you’re still watching from home,” she began. “You’re watching from inside your house. Because a pandemic has happened, and you are stuck, and whatever side you’re on, you understand that when you have leadership you would not be — you would not be stuck in your house.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Mother Nature pandemics The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

‘The View’s’ Whoopi Goldberg demands Americans stop calling COVID-19 a ‘Chinese virus.’ Meghan McCain isn’t having any of it.

Whoopi Goldberg, co-host on “The View,” said that people need to stop referring to COVID-19 as a Chinese virus, and insisted that the pandemic is not on the Chinese country’s shoulders — but on that of Mother Nature.

Co-host Meghan McCain, however, hit back hard with a fiery response.

What are the details?

Goldberg made the demand during a Wednesday segment on the ABC show.

“We need to stop calling it — or labeling it — it’s like [China] did it to us,” Goldberg said. “Mother Nature really did it to us.”

Goldberg pointed out President Donald Trump’s statement that Chinese officials reportedly blamed the U.S. for the virus, saying that the military brought the virus to the Wuhan region of China.

“Clearly [Trump] is trying to pin the blame on China, but I don’t recall hearing … China say the military gave it to them,” she insisted. “All I remember is seeing lots of people trying to quell this pandemic.”

Goldberg continued by claiming that Trump simply “makes things up.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in, “I don’t think when the swine flu … originated here in the United States, we didn’t hear people saying, ‘This is the American swine flu.'”

Co-host Megan McCain, however, disagreed with her fellow panelists, and said that she had no issue referring to COVID-19 as a Chinese virus.

“I don’t have a problem with people calling it whatever they want,” she insisted. “It’s a deadly virus that did originate in Wuhan [China]. I don’t have a problem with it. And I think that China — had they acted right away, and we had more access to information, maybe it wouldn’t have gotten to the place where it is.”

Putting things in perspective, McCain added, “We have the luxury right now to be arguing about verbiage versus people that are actually dying and on ventilators.”
