Abortion Hyde amendment Intelwars Mainstream media Media Meghan McCain President joe biden Pro-Life The View

Meghan McCain trends on Twitter after proclaiming ‘abortion is murder’ on ‘The View’

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain trended on social media Monday after she criticized President Joe Biden’s support for federal funding for abortion, claiming “he’s doing grave spiritual harm to himself” by violating the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings.

Her comments came as “The View” discussed how the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops last week advanced plans to produce a document that could deny Communion to public officials who support abortion. The effort is largely seen as a rebuke of President Biden, the first Catholic U.S. president in nearly 60 years and an advocate of abortion rights.

“When it comes to the separation of church and state, the onus is on the government, not the church,” McCain said, adding that the church attempts to exert its influence whenever possible. She noted that previously several U.S. bishops expressed support for excommunicating New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) after he signed a radical pro-abortion bill into law, so the actions toward Biden are not unprecedented.

McCain reminded viewers of Biden’s flip-flopping positions on abortion, most notably his previous support for the Hyde Amendment — a law that bans federal funding for abortions — which Biden renounced on the 2020 campaign trail. The president’s most recent budget removes the Hyde Amendment, fulfilling a campaign promise to pro-abortion activists and signaling his shifting public views on abortion under pressure from the left.

“If you are a devout Catholic, as President Biden claims to be, abortion is a cardinal sin that can do deep spiritual harm to you, and President Biden had been supportive of the Hyde Amendment up until 2019 when he decided to run for president,” McCain said.

“I know the women on this show disagree with me, but as far as I’m concerned abortion is murder and that means the government-funded killing of the unborn,” she continued.

“It’s ultimately up to the church, but he’s walking a very fine line here, and ultimately, all of these issues are literally life and death for Catholics, for devout Christians,” she said. “And he’s going to have to ultimately talk to his creator when the time comes as we all do, and reconcile his politics with his — with his personal faith, and I believe he’s doing great spiritual harm to himself and harm to this country.”

McCain’s comments stirred up controversy on social media, with pro-lifers expressing support for her and critics attacking her views. After she started trending, McCain observed that the attention she received was likely due to being “the only pro-life woman in mainstream media.”

Ana Navarro CNN Intelwars Jeffrey Toobin Leftists Masturbation Sexual Harassment The View watch

Ana Navarro says CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin ‘sexually harassed himself maybe,’ defends his return to network after ‘accidental’ masturbation faux pas

Ana Navarro shocked absolutely no one during Monday’s episode of “The View” when she defended Jeffrey Toobin’s
return to CNN after the legal analyst’s embarrassing Zoom call masturbation fiasco last fall that cost him his longtime job with the New Yorker.

What did Navarro say?

After viewing part of Toobin’s on-air return to CNN, which took place last week, co-host Whoopi Goldberg noted that Navarro “worked for CNN” and then asked her, “Are you surprised to see him back on the air?”

Team player Navarro said no.

“You know, actually I’m not surprised he’s back on the air,” she answered. “But I will tell you when I saw that interview, oh, God, how embarrassing, how humiliating. I kept thinking to myself, ‘If I have to go on live TV and explain to the nation why I masturbated on a Zoom call, I think I would rather go sell avocados under I-95 than get my job back on TV.'”

Navarro explained that Toobin “was not sexually harassing anybody. He didn’t have the intent to sexually harass somebody. He was sexually harassing himself maybe.”

She added that Toobin’s
faux pas was an “accidental exposure” and that he was fired from the New Yorker for it and took a leave of absence from his CNN gig as well — and “during the election, during the hottest political and legal times.”

Navarro suggests CNN viewers should ‘have some grace’

“I also think CNN is a for-profit business. If viewers don’t like it, then they should make their views known,” she continued. “If they wanna have some grace, if they wanna say, ‘We’re not gonna cancel a guy because he made a stupid mistake.’ I think his bigger problem is, frankly, with himself, with his family, with his wife than it is with his CNN colleagues. Because it was not something that was done to us. It was something stupid, horrific, kinky, freaky that he did. But it wasn’t something he was trying to do to us, his CNN colleagues.”

youtu.be

What’s the background?

Toobin was caught masturbating on camera during an October work call with the New Yorker, for whom he was a veteran staff writer. After his behavior came to light, Toobin
lost his New Yorker job — but CNN, for which he also worked, granted him a leave of absence rather than terminating his employment.He explained that he thought he’d turned off his camera.

“I didn’t think I was on the call. I didn’t think other people could see me,” Toobin told CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota during his high-profile return in front of the camera last week.

Toobin added to Camerota that it still didn’t excuse his behavior, and he called his actions “deeply moronic and indefensible.”

He also told Camerota he’d been in therapy during his leave of absence and did things like working at a food bank and is “trying to be a better person.”

After Toobin’s return to the cable network, the
Daily Beast said it interviewed CNN “insiders” about it — and some of them characterized Toobin’s comeback as “insane,” “awkward,” and “inappropriate.”

Past allegations against Toobin

It isn’t clear why Navarro referred to “sexual harassment,” but Toobin has been accused of it — both immediately after the notorious Zoom call and years before that.

The New York Daily News reported in 2010 that an unnamed “well-known media figure” said Toobin — who’s been married since 1986 — repeatedly hit on her at a Washington, D.C., party.

“He came up behind me and whispered in my ear,” the source told the paper, adding that “I couldn’t believe my ears. It was so disgusting. At the time, I never even knew people did that.”

The woman added to the Daily News that Toobin later followed her to her hotel room: “He tried to invite himself in. He said, ‘You know you want it.’ I said, ‘No, actually I don’t.'”

After Toobin was caught masturbating last fall, the Young Turks’ Adrienne Law tweeted in response to those defending him that “1. Masturbating at work is neither normal nor acceptable — it’s sexual harassment. 2. Individuals who engage in sexual harassment should suffer professional consequences. 3. These Toobin defenders are telling on themselves.”

The Daily News — citing an unnamed source — also reported in 2010 that after Toobin impregnated his mistress Casey Greenfield, he offered her “money if she’d have an abortion.”

The paper added that Greenfield carried the baby to term but that Toobin had stopped talking to her. The Daily News said Toobin agreed to take a DNA test, which ultimately proved he’s the father, and that a Manhattan Family Court judge ordered him to pay child support. The paper said that when Toobin refused to pay the full amount, sources claimed Greenfield’s lawyer threatened to notify his employers and garnish his wages — and then Toobin ponied up.

anthony fauci Anthony fauci emails Intelwars Meghan McCain The View Video Videos

Meghan McCain torches Fauci for basking in spotlight amid pandemic: ‘He clearly wanted to be a Kardashian’

“The View’s” Meghan McCain blasted infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci during Friday’s broadcast for appearing to capitalize on his newfound fame amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

What are the details?

During a Friday segment, McCain said that Fauci loved his press opportunities — such as photo shoots for People magazine and In Style — during the coronavirus pandemic because he thrived on a desire of being a reality star just like the Kardashian family.

Fauci in 2020 was even nominated for People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive.”

The remarks took place during a discussion about Fauci’s newly released emails.

Co-host Sara Haines insisted that Fauci was not happy with the attention he received over the past year, but McCain pointed out that he appeared to be well at ease with the myriad press opportunities that came his way.

“I don’t think people that are uncomfortable with celebrity and don’t want to be celebrities pose on the cover of ‘In Style’ magazine in fashion spread, and on the cover of ‘People’ magazine,” McCain insisted. “I’m sorry, but if he just wanted to be a scientist, part of the criticism of him going forward is that he clearly wanted to be a Kardashian as well.”

She also said that Fauci apparently didn’t understand Americans’ concerns in the early days of the pandemic.

“We have to understand where the virus originated from if we’re ever going to, God forbid, face a threat like this going forward,” McCain continued. “There’s a huge crisis in this country with Republicans and Democrats questioning the legitimacy of our institutions, and having a lack of faith in our government, and the medical community. … If there’s nothing to hide, then show us the proof, and continue the investigations.”

In a December interview with People, Fauci called his celebrity “surrealistic” and “amusing.”

“You can’t take that stuff seriously and start to think you’re a celebrity,” he said. “When you start to think that, then you get into trouble. I’m a physician. I’m a scientist. And I’m a public health official.”

Daytime tv Intelwars Joy Behar Meghan McCain Own the libs The View vaccines Video Videos

‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar says conservatives aren’t getting vaccines because they want to ‘own the libs.’ Megan McCain shoots her down in segment-ending fury.

“The View” co-hosts Joy Behar and Meghan McCain clashed over vaccinations on Thursday’s broadcast of the hit daytime TV show, prompting co-host Whoopi Goldberg to prematurely shut down the segment.

At one point during the heated discussion, Behar insisted that conservatives are avoiding the vaccine simply in order to “own the libs.”

The remarks didn’t sit well with McCain, the sole conservative on the panel.

What are the details?

Early in the segment, which was about COVID-19 vaccines, vaccine lotteries, and the contingent of population who are receiving the vaccines, co-host Sunny Hostin argued that people who refuse the vaccine are “selfish,” and insisted that we are “supposed to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper.”

“We’re supposed to take care of each other,” Hostin reasoned. “We have to incentivize people to get vaccinated so they not only protect themselves and their families, but their fellow citizens — I guess I can’t make sense of something like that when you have a country like India where there are 4,500 deaths every day from COVID and people there are begging for the vaccine.”

Hostin concluded her tirade by insisting that people who wish to be incentivized for receiving the vaccine are “sad and selfish” and “frankly kind of absurd.”

Behar’s remarks came after the show played a clip of infectious diseases expert Dr. Anthony Fauci saying that Americans were misinterpreting updated mask guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What are Americans ‘misinterpreting’?

On Wednesday, Fauci said, “They are feeling that we’re saying ‘You don’t need the mask anymore.’ That’s not what the CDC said. They said ‘If you are vaccinated, you can feel safe — that you will not get infected either outdoors or indoors. It did not explicitly say that unvaccinated people should abandon their masks.”

Behar chimed in, “It’s not that complicated, people. It’s not nuclear physics. All you have to do is get the damn vaccine. When you go inside, wear a mask even if you have the vaccine. There might be variants around. Get the damn vaccine! Get the booster when that time is coming! What is the complicated problem here with people?

“I don’t understand,” she continued. “Is this just to own the libs? Maybe they’re not seeing enough on television the way people suffer when they get the disease. Even though the numbers are going down, people are still dying. … You’re not ‘owning the libs’ by not getting the shot. Nobody is growing an extra arm or head. Everybody is fine. It’s the people not taking it who are not fine. I’m sick of it!”

White House and CDC have done a ‘terrible job’

McCain interjected and said that Behar’s remarks weren’t helpful in mending division between conservatives and liberals and that Fauci’s messaging on the vaccine and mask-wearing has been utter “garbage.”

“And it’s not just about owning the libs, the demographics on who is vaccine-hesitant — it crosses the gamut,” McCain fired back. “The White House and the CDC have done a terrible job, and just saying, ‘What do you want to own the libs’ and that’s that? It’s not productive. That’s why people keep going to their corners and this is coming from a place of fear. I don’t think it’s coming from a place of politics.”

McCain added that there has been so much miscommunication surrounding the pandemic that it’s easy to see why some Americans are hesitant or skeptical of a new vaccine.

“People don’t understand and don’t know,” McCain defended. “I don’t like to judge people who aren’t accessible to the same resources and education I am. This is a serious, serious problem in this country.”

Behar’s race argument

Behar reasoned that vaccine hesitancy in black Americans is legitimate, but added that white conservatives aren’t getting the vaccine because they’re watching Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.

“A lot of people of color have every right to be skeptical of the government,” Behar insisted. “They have been burned for generations by various policies and so they’re nervous. That’s different.”

McCain interrupted, “Republicans have reasons to be nervous for other [reasons]. I’m not trying to judge. I want as many people vaccinated in as many ways, but I think when you come on the show and just say we’re ‘owning the libs,’ it’s just factually inaccurate about the demographics who are not getting the vaccine. It crosses the gamut.”

As McCain continued shutting her down, Behar fired back, “A lot of these people that you’re talking about, Meghan, are watching Sean Hannity … and Tucker Carlson, who are telling them that it’s danger — Excuse me, can I please finish the sentence?”

McCain, however, refused to back down, and shouted, “They are not! They are not!”

She continued, snapping, “Some of these women that I know are highly educated women.”

As the two women continued shouting at each other, Goldberg cut the fiery segment off and went to commercial break.

Biden Biden administration Insurrection Intelwars Meghan McCain Meghan mccain liz cheney The View Trump allies Videos

Meghan McCain implores media to quit focusing on Trump allies and take a good hard look at President Joe Biden

Meghan McCain lashed out at the media during Thursday’s broadcast of “The View,” saying that they would be better advised to examine President Joe Biden’s administration rather than targeting Trump allies and re-litigating issues that took place months ago.

What are the details?

During the show’s “Hot Topics” segment, McCain and the other co-hosts addressed Georgia Republican Reps. Jody Hice and Andrew Clyde for their remarks on the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot.

Both Nice and Clyde have insisted that no “insurrection” took place in Washington, D.C.

Clyde has said, “There was no insurrection, and calling it an ‘insurrection,’ in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg fired back, “What was he smoking?”

Co-host Sara Haines began, “This is a strategy. The broken recording, this is something [former President Donald] Trump did leading up to his election, it’s what he did through his whole administration, and what he continues to do. ‘If I say it enough, it’ll be come true, or at least it’ll appear to be true and people will start to believe it.'”

McCain, for her part, began, “Well, this happened four months ago, and we’ve been talking about it for four months, and I’ve made my perspective on this absolutely crystal clear: I think it’s horrific. I don’t believe the ‘Big Lie.’ We’ve talked about Liz Cheney at length.”

Continuing, McCain turned to what many people say are the missteps of the Biden administration — including the ongoing U.S. southern border crisis and inflation — and said that the media should pay attention to what’s affecting the lives of America right now.

“You know what’s also a strategy, Sara? A strategy is not focusing on anything the Biden administration is doing right now that is leading this country into crisis,” McCain said. “There’s a crisis at the border, inflation rates are sky-high, the Middle East is on fire, unemployment is crazy, and a lot of Americans can’t figure out how they’re gonna get gas in their car. These are real problems. It’s like the ’70s all over again.”

She continued, “I think there’s a strategy going on that the media doesn’t want to focus on anything bad happening in the Biden administration. And I implore everyone who works in this industry — just because Trump was so bad doesn’t mean this is good!”

Doubling down on the remarks, McCain insisted, “There are real meat-and-potatoes issues impacting average Americans, who are also frightened, and I think we should be focusing on that, versus re-litigating something that happened four months ago.”

Covid-19 tyranny Intelwars Shun those who won't get vaccine Sunny Hostin The View Vaccine watch White evangelicals

Sunny Hostin of ‘The View’ declares ‘we need to shun those that refuse to get vaccinated’ — specifically ‘white evangelicals’ and ‘Republicans’

Sunny Hostin of “The View” tore into Americans who’ve indicated they won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine by saying we should “shun” them — and the co-host specifically called out “white evangelicals” and “Republicans.”

What are the details?

Hostin on Monday’s program decried the “politicization” of the vaccine controversy, calling out former President Donald Trump without naming him — and then proceeded to politicize things herself by using divisive and shaming language and phrases.

“This is just a vestige of the prior administration’s politicization of the mask and of the vaccine,” Hostin said of reason for vaccine hesitancy. “I mean, the prior administration was an anti-science administration, and I think we’re seeing the fallout of the bungling of the pandemic where it led to … the death[s] of over 500,000 people. We now know that studies show that had the pandemic … been dealt with in a different way, in a public-health manner, had these masks and efforts not been politicized in the way that they were, we could have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, including the lives of my in-laws.”

Perhaps Hostin missed the news that Trump — who, by the way, said he’s been vaccinated — recently called anti-vaccine sentiments “deranged pseudo-science” and ripped President Joe Biden for aiding such a point of view by pausing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine’s distribution.

Oh, and speaking of politicizing the vaccine, who remembers when Kamala Harris in September famously said she wouldn’t receive a vaccine developed under the Trump administration — and then happily received it in December when she was the vice president-elect?

But anyway, Hostin in her soft-spoken rant went on to target and blame specific groups.

“When you look at the folks that are not getting vaccinated — because it’s a quarter of Americans that aren’t getting vaccinated — white evangelicals: 45% say they won’t get vaccinated according to … Pew Research … almost 50% of Republicans are refusing to get the vaccine,” Hostin said. “So we won’t reach herd immunity because of those particular groups.”

Then the co-host lowered the boom: “So I say we need to shun those that refuse to get vaccinated.”

She added that unvaccinated Americans should be refused entry into certain places.

“I think if you have not been vaccinated, no entry. You want to get on a plane? You gotta be vaccinated, show proof of vaccination,” Hostin said. “And those people who don’t want to get vaccinated … that’s fine for you, but you can’t spread it to other people … you don’t get those other liberties that come with immunity. Something has to break. If that’s your personal choice not to get vaccinated, you don’t then get to infringe on the rights of those who have chosen to protect their fellow citizens.”

Hostin’s comments begin just after the 3:30 mark in the below clip:

Pushback

But co-host Meghan McCain, as you can imagine, wasn’t down with Hostin’s all-out assault on the unvaccinated — and pointed out that when concern abounded last year over vaccine hesitancy among the black community, the response was “compassion” and “empathy.” However, amid vaccine hesitancy with other groups, McCain said the response from the left has been “you dumb hillbillies; stay the hell away from me!”

She added that such messaging is “absolute garbage” and is “getting worse.”

“I have no problem with vaccines, but the messaging is psychotic,” McCain concluded, adding that “I’m horrified by the way people are talking to Republicans … I think we should try and meet people along instead of saying they’re dumb morons in the middle of the country that are going to kill everybody. It’s just not effective.”

Hostin is far from alone in her view

As it happens, Hostin is far from alone in her view. On Friday, USA Today published an op-ed by a far-left former Justice Department prosecutor titled, “It’s time to start shunning the ‘vaccine hesitant.’ They’re blocking COVID herd immunity.”

Like Hostin on her high horse, Michael J. Stern’s piece was full of venom and extremist sentiments, noting that “a quarter of the country is ruining [herd immunity] for all of us” — and he also took aim at white evangelicals and Republicans, saying “in the end the G.O.P., and the children of G.O.D., are perpetuating a virus that is sickening and killing people in droves.”

More from Stern’s piece:

A big part of the problem stems from the cultish relationship many evangelicals and Republicans have with the former president. They absorbed his endless efforts to downplay the danger of the virus and turn public health precautions into a political freedom movement. But the time for analyzing why these human petri dishes have chosen to ignore the medical science that could save them, and us, is over. We need a different strategy. I propose shunning.

Biden’s wildly successful vaccine rollout means that soon everyone who wants a vaccine will have one. When that happens, restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, barbers, airlines and Ubers should require proof of vaccination before providing their services.

And it shouldn’t stop there. Businesses should make vaccination a requirement for employment. A COVID-19 outbreak can shut down a business and be financially devastating. And failure to enforce basic health and safety measures is not fair to employees who have to work in offices, factories and stores where close contact is required. Things should get personal, too: People should require friends to be vaccinated to attend the barbecues and birthday parties they host. Friends don’t let friends spread the coronavirus.

Derek chauvin trial Intelwars LeBron James Lebron james tweet Ma'khia bryant Social Media The View Videos

Meghan McCain tears into LeBron James on ‘The View’ for his tweet: ‘Putting that police officer’s life in danger’

Meghan McCain, co-host on “The View,” blasted NBA superstar LeBron James on Thursday after he shared a photo of the Columbus, Ohio, police officer who fatally shot 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.

On Wednesday night, James tweeted the photo and captioned it, “YOU’RE NEXT. #ACCOUNTABILITY.” He later removed it after tremendous backlash.

What are the details?

On Thursday morning, McCain blasted James for tweeting the officer’s identity and warned that he was putting the officer’s life in danger with his rhetoric.

James himself on Wednesday night said that he removed the photo because the tweet was “being used to create more hate.”

At the time, he wrote, “I’m so damn tired of seeing black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its [sic] being used to create more hate[.] This isn’t about one officer. It’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”

During the segment, McCain addressed the violence that led up to the officer’s shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant.

Co-host Sunny Hostin said that the officer could have attempted to de-escalate the situation before firing on the 16-year-old.

“It goes from zero to execution very quickly with black and brown people,” Hostin said.

McCain responded, “I don’t know enough about police protocol, but I know that had she been able to successfully stab the girl, she possibly could have hit an artery, she possibly could have killed the girl herself.”

“This is hard for me to talk about because … the way I was raised is to respect authority, is to respect police officers, to respect law enforcement,” she added. “No one without two brain cells in their head can’t understand that police tend to treat African Americans and people of color a different way than they do white people. It’s just a fact.”

McCain added, “But when you have people like LeBron James posting pictures of this police officer before this has been adjudicated and litigated, you’re also putting that police officer’s life in danger, and I would like killing to stop in this country and violence to stop.”

“She was about to stab another girl, and the police officer did what he thought he had to do,” she concluded.

Intelwars Pepe Le Pew rape culture Space jam 2 The View Videos Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg rails against Pepé Le Pew critics: ‘Don’t know why you’ve got to erase everything’

Whoopi Goldberg has torn into critics attempting to cancel beloved cartoon character Pepé Le Pew, demanding to know why people have to “erase everything.”

Goldberg’s comments come on the heels of New York Times columnist Charles Blow’s explosive essay accusing the cartoon skunk of perpetuating and “normalizing rape culture.”

The cartoon character will not appear in the upcoming “Space Jam” sequel.

What are the details?

During Tuesday’s broadcast of “The View,” Goldberg and the other co-hosts discussed eBay’s recent announcement that the online marketplace company would stop selling six Dr. Seuss books that were removed from publication for their potential for causing offense with “racist imagery.”

“I just heard that they’re taking Pepé Le Pew out of ‘Space Jam,’ and I think to myself, ‘Couldn’t y’all have just written a couple of lines to say, you know, Pepé doesn’t do that anymore because he knows it’s not OK to jump on other skunks who may not be as interested in him as he is interested?” Goldberg demanded. “I don’t know why you’ve got to erase everything. I don’t get it. I don’t understand it.”

Co-host Joy Behar later fired back, “Well, nobody likes Pepé Le Pew anyway.”

Goldberg responded, “I do! I like Pepé!”

The Hollywood Reporter on Monday noted that the popular Looney Tunes character will not be featured in any current or future TV projects.

What else?

Of the decision to remove Pepé from the new “Space Jam” film, actress Greice Santo — the skunk’s co-star — expressed disappointment that she wouldn’t be able to deliver Pepé’s “comeuppance.”

Through a spokesperson, actress Greice Santo said, “This was such a big deal for Greice to be in this movie. Even though Pepé is a cartoon character, if anyone was going to slap a sexual harasser like him, Greice wished it would be her. Now the scene is cut, and she doesn’t have that power to influence the world through younger generations who’ll be watching ‘Space Jam 2,’ to let younger girls and younger boys know that Pepé’s behavior is unacceptable.”

According to Deadline, the scene in question was as described:

Pepé was set to appear in a black-and-white Casablanca-like Rick’s Cafe sequence. Pepé, playing a bartender, starts hitting on a woman at the bar played by Santo. He begins kissing her arm, which she pulls back, then slamming Pepé into the chair next to hers. She then pours her drink on Pepé, and slaps him hard, sending him spinning in a stool, which is then stopped by LeBron James’ hand. James and Bugs Bunny are looking for Lola, and Pepé knows her whereabouts. Pepé then tells the guys that Penelope cat has filed a restraining order against him. James makes a remark in the script that Pepé can’t grab other Tunes without their consent.

Ana Navarro Candace owens Donald Trump Intelwars Sunny Hostin The left eating their own The View Van Jones watch

‘The View’ devours fellow leftist Van Jones for, um, noting good things Trump did for blacks and appearing in ‘smiling’ photo with Candace Owens

Anybody out there notice how little leftists celebrated after hated former President Donald Trump flew away from the White House last month and President Joe Biden took the oath of office?

You’d think there would have been 24/7 left-wing dancing in the streets — fully masked-up and socially distanced, of course — with a heapin’ helpin’ of giddiness, laughter, and politically correct tears of joy. But that isn’t what we’ve seen — quite the opposite, in fact.

Instead, leftists have been even angrier than usual, as they’ve spent their first few weeks of complete control of the White House and both houses of Congress impeaching Trump — who’s, you know, no longer in office — and silencing and canceling and bullying anyone and anything that wafts even the slightest conservative scent.

But has that been enough to satisfy their head-scratching, ravenous appetites? No way.

They’re starting to go after their own, like sharks in a feeding frenzy.

Know what happens when a leftist cast member of leftist “Saturday Night Live” tells a transphobic joke? Devoted comrades across the fruited plain pull up their chairs, stick napkins under their collars, and start scraping their knives and forks together. Bon appetit!

Now what?

Now our favorite TV show “The View” seems to have literally jumped those hungry sharks.

We’ve all known for years that the show’s co-hosts — save for Meghan McCain — are avowed, outspoken leftists. But what happened on Friday’s program is truly dropping jaws.

Van Jones, a fellow left-wing political figure, made an appearance — and one may have assumed he was stepping into friendly territory. But no.

Co-host Sunny Hostin tore into Jones for — let’s see here — acknowledging good things that Trump did for the black people while in office. She actually told him that “people in the black community don’t trust you anymore”:

But was that all? No sir.

Trump-hating political commentator Ana Navarro — who apparently was a guest co-host on Friday’s program — sank her teeth into Jones for appearing in a “smiling” photo with conservative figure Candace Owens.

Navarro’s outraged, courtroom-style cross examination was quite a thing to behold: “Do you not regret that? Do you not see that you’re giving her legitimacy? You don’t regret taking smiling pictures with Candace Owens? I mean, how does that help the issue?”

Jones apparently couldn’t believe his ears — and tried his best to interject — but soon co-host Joy Behar stepped in and broke it up and said “you’re gonna have to take it outside.”

As you can see from the latter tweet from Owens herself, she seemed to think Navarro was being a bit unreasonable: “The radical Left wants to unite America by making it a criminal act to smile in pictures with conservatives. Utterly psychopathic.”

She added that the photo in question was from an “event attended by both Republicans and Democrats for the First Step Act — prison reform. The women of #TheView are taking their obsession with me to new heights.”

Intelwars Joe biden administration Joy Behar Meghan McCain Questions in advance The View watch WHITE HOUSE Whoopi Goldberg

‘The View’ — surprise, surprise — vigorously defends Biden White House’s desire to get reporters’ questions in advance

It will come as no surprise that nearly all the co-hosts of “The View” vigorously defended the jaw-dropping recent request from President Joe Biden’s communication team to get reporters’ questions in advance of daily press briefings.

What are the details?

It seemed like a big joke to co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who chuckled several times as she opened the discussion on Wednesday’s show and bristled that journalists were “raising red flags about the [chuckle] Biden administration’s promise of total transparency.” She then asked, “Does it occur to anybody they’ve been in probably for three weeks, and they might not [laughs] … have all the answers yet? Call me crazy.”

Co-host Joy Behar naturally concluded the concern from the media is bogus: “First of all, let’s talk about whether they’re actual, specific questions or areas of discussion, and, you know, this type of press conference is not supposed to be gotcha questions; they’re supposed to be informative, information questions and answers — and so it behooves the administration to be prepared to give the correct information.”

Behar added that White House press secretary Jen Psaki “can’t know everything, you know?” and that “the reporters are quite aware of when someone is spinning and when they’re not, and that they would call her out on that, and this administration is very well prepared to say the truth, whereas the last one would just lie and spin and whatever. But you know … I just think that it’s not a gotcha session. That’s what has to be understood.”

Co-host Sara Haines also said the Biden White House’s request for questions in advance wasn’t a concern, emphasizing that it would be “if there was some kind of consequential outcome” for reporters who don’t provide advance questions. She added that “this happens in every administration, and it’s just part of the game.”

While co-host Sunny Hostin said she didn’t like the request for questions in advance, she managed to go on a lengthy breakdown about why it’s actually no big deal since President Donald Trump is finally out of office.

“Let’s face it. I mean, this is a world of difference from what we were dealing with before,” she said. “The last administration was not transparent. It was opaque at the very best. … We’re coming from the Mooch [Anthony Scaramucci], Sarah Huckabee [Sanders], and Kayleigh McEnany! The liar-in-chief … press secretary! So we’re in a whole new world, and so, you know, if the Biden administration has given us — .”

Hostin wasn’t quite able to finish her thought and just settled for, “I think it’s just a breath of fresh air, so the fact that they’re asking for topic areas or even questions, I still think we’re in a much better place in terms of transparency. And isn’t that what we want … from our government?”

But Meghan McCain isn’t having it

As you might expect, co-host Meghan McCain differed from the rest of the panel.

“I’m a Republican,” she began, noting that the idea of the White House asking reporters for questions in advance is “highly un-kosher” and “highly unorthodox.”

“Maybe we are all living in different worlds,” McCain continued, “but I have worked on campaigns, I’ve been around many politicians, I’ve helped politicians — [but] I’ve never once been in a situation where I said, ‘Hey, you as a journalist, can you give me this question for the principal in advance?’ That’s not how it works.”

She then addressed the elephant in the room: “A big part of the problem is that we live in two different worlds of media: We live in the liberal media and the conservative media, and it is known … most journalists are liberal, most journalists are Democrats, most journalists have a liberal bias. It’s just the facts.”

McCain added that there’s journalism school data to back up her points.

Finally, she issued a warning: “If Jen Psaki and people in the Biden administration want to act like this is just gonna be a free for all forever because ‘we’re all finally done with the Trump administration,’ and there’s gonna be a different set of standards … it’s gonna end very badly.”

Georgia runoff election Intelwars Meghan McCain Raphael warnock The View watch Whoopi Goldberg

Angry Whoopi Goldberg slaps down Meghan McCain’s questions for Democratic US Sen.-elect Raphael Warnock — who of course skirted them

Co-host Meghan McCain has been having a tough couple of days on “The View.”

On Monday, the lone conservative voice on the decidedly left-wing TV program was forced to push back against Joy Behar — perhaps the most ardent leftist co-host on the show — over her “dangerous'” rhetoric regarding those who voted for President Donald Trump.

But it got nastier on Wednesday during a segment in which “The View” welcomed with open arms the new U.S. senator-elect from Georgia, the Rev. Raphael Warnock.

What happened?

McCain had no intention of pitching softballs to the far-left Democrat, fresh from his runoff victory Tuesday night — but she did offer him congratulations to start things off.

“I watched your race closely like everyone else, and you talked a lot about unity on the campaign trail and the need to unify the country and unify Georgians,” she continued. “But progressives across the country are celebrating that your election could mean adding two states, eliminating the filibuster, and packing the Supreme Court with more members. Your colleague [Democratic U.S. Sen.] Joe Manchin has joined with Republicans to reject those ideas. [Democratic Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer this morning tweeted ‘buckle up.’ So you could understand how it’s hard for Republicans like to believe in the spirit of unity. And I want to know, will you do the same thing as Joe Manchin and agree not to follow up on all of those things?”

Warnock skirted McCain’s question by replying that he hasn’t been thinking about those issues, and neither are his constituents. But McCain refused to let him grandstand, and she interrupted his attempt to move the goalposts.

“Senator, I do believe that average Americans care about packing the courts, and I just want to know if you would agree and join Joe Manchin and agree that you’re not for that?” McCain continued.

Already a skilled politician, Warnock certainly knows how to avoid giving direct answers — and he warbled on about other issues.

But after he finished, McCain continued to press: “Senator, I understand that. I’m just asking you a direct question. I just wanted to know if you would join—”

Goldberg, however, began speaking while McCain was still asking her question: “Well … actually, I’m going to end this. I get …”

And then she yelled at McCain: “Hey, listen!”

Dialing it back just a tad, Goldberg continued by saying, “We’re gonna say thanks to the Senator-elect, Rev. Raphael Warnock, and we will be right back. Thanks for coming back, sir.”

Warnock smiled and said, “Great to be on ‘The View!'”

‘The View’s’ Meghan McCain pushes back against Joy Behar over her ‘dangerous’ rhetoric & media treatment of Trump voters: ‘You’re a proud, progressive leftist’

Meghan McCain took Joy Behar, fellow co-host on “The View,” to task over her treatment and the media’s treatment of Trump supporters.

What are the details?

As highlighted by the Daily Caller, the exchange took place Monday.

McCain’s remarks about the media and its treatment of Trump supporters came after fellow co-host Sunny Hostin said that President Donald Trump’s efforts to halt certification of the 2020 presidential election amounted to nothing more than a coup attempt.

Behar also quipped, “Who are these people?”

McCain fired back, “I think that rhetoric is dangerous. I think saying we’re going to have martial law, and it’s a coup — I’m here in D.C. They’re setting up for the inauguration right now. There’s not going to be martial law, and things like that just scare people.”

“Joy, to your point, ‘Who are these people?'” McCain added. “Who are these people are 70 million Americans that voted for Trump. Biden won, but he didn’t win by any kind of the landslide that I, for one, thought he might have.”

She continued, insisting that the media rhetoric against Trump supporters needed to stop.

“I’m just saying the rhetoric and the media needs to be more respectful of people — of Trump voters — and I think that’s how we got to this place to begin with, and going forward in 2021, we need to be respectful of the 70 million Americans that for whatever reason did not feel that they could, in good faith, pull the trigger for President Biden and Vice President Harris.”

Behar, not to be outdone, fired back and insisted that many of Trump’s supporters got their information about his campaign and the subsequent election from sources that were simply not “legitimate.” She also insisted that many people who voted for Trump did so without the full picture of what it was they were actually doing.

McCain snapped, “That’s your perspective. It’s the perspective of Joy Behar and, you know, you’re a proud, progressive leftist, but I am a proud conservative, and I think the idea that the only reason why people voted for President Trump in the last election is because they were lied to and they’re morons who were just being fed information is not only disrespectful … [but] inaccurate.”

anti-Trump Donald Trump Intelwars robert de niro The View Trump Supporters watch

Trump-hating actor Robert De Niro: President’s supporters ‘should be afraid of what’s gonna happen’ when he’s out of office

Actor Robert De Niro said supporters of President Donald Trump have a lot to worry about once he leaves office — presumably in January — and predicted that some will “have the gall to try and crawl back.”

What are the details?

De Niro is about as far away from a fan of Trump as one can get. Last December he said he wanted to see the president “confronted and humiliated” in public — specifically wanting to witness a “bag of s**t” hit him in the face. De Niro also told TV host Stephen Colbert last November that America under Trump is like living in an “abusive household.”

And during a Friday appearance on “The View,” De Niro fielded a number of questions from the co-hosts — and fellow Trump-hater Ana Navarro began by asking “Bob” if anyone will be able to convince the president to concede the election to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and also, “Why are so many Republicans still kissing the ring among other things?”

‘They should be afraid’

“I’m — I don’t know what — what logic they’re using except they’re just afraid,” De Niro replied. “They should be afraid of what’s gonna happen later when he’s not around, and they’re gonna try and crawl back, the ones that would have the gall to try and crawl back. It’s gonna be — it’s going to be interesting to see.”

De Niro added that Trump is such a “sham” and a “bully” who will “go anywhere” to give himself an advantage.

“He’ll pardon himself,” the actor said. “He’ll pardon everyone around him, who he can, who’s gonna be possibly prosecuted and/or convicted, and then some.” He added that if Trump were reelected, it would mean “the end of this country, period. I’m not being overdramatic.”

De Niro also said Trump’s “base” will discover how his behavior “trickles down to them.”

Whoopi insisted that Hillary Clinton didn’t question or complain about the results of the 2016 and went on to shame Trump supporters who question the legitimacy of the election.

How dare you question it?” she asked.

2020 presidential election Intelwars Sunny Hostin The View Trump voters Videos

‘The View’ host Sunny Hostin goes nuclear over fact that nearly 50% of voters voted for Trump: ‘You are selfish’

“The View’s” Sunny Hostin declared that Americans who voted for President Donald Trump during the 2020 presidential election are “selfish.”

What are the details?

During a heated segment, Hostin blasted Trump voters for supporting the president.

“For the past four years, this president has shown us that he is a misogynist, that he is homophobic, that he is racist, and that he mismanaged a coronavirus pandemic to the tune of over 250,000 American deaths,” Hostin said. “Yet 50% of America saw all of that and looked the other way to their brothers and sisters and said, ‘I’m going to vote for him anyway.’ And that is really disheartening.”

Hostin insisted that one thing was clear to her: “For me, that means you are selfish.”

“I’m not going to say that 50% of Americans are racist and sexist and homophobic, but I will say that tells me that they will look the other way to that kind of behavior, to the plight of their fellow Americans if personally they feel that they are doing OK and that they will do better under that type of presidency, and that, I think, is despicable,” she unloaded. “It is un-American.”

Co-host Sara Haines appeared to attempt to steer the conversation back to more of a middle ground and argued that voting itself “is a selfish thing.”

“We vote for what affects our day-to-day lives,” she reasoned, pointing to voters in 2016 who previously supported former President Barack Obama, but went on to vote for President Donald Trump. “That’s their choice. That’s their vote, and they’re just as American as we are, they have a different viewpoint. That was the part that really shocked me on election night is how different it was.”

Hostin was not to be deterred from her leftist talking points.

She responded, “The problem, Sara, though, is that our very democracy is founded on the notion of a collective spirit. ‘We the people,’ right? We the people, for the people, by the people, and unless you have that collective social contract, our democracy fails.”

Hostin argued that such selfishness impacts fellow voters, and seemed to indicate that democracy will fail over differing viewpoints.

“[W]hen you see 50% of the country just looking the other way at the plight of 50% or more of the country, at the plight of the LGBTQ community, at the plight of African Americans, at the plight of immigrants — their children are being torn from them at the border — at the plight of people that are losing their spouses, their children, their brothers, their sisters from a deadly virus because the president could not control it — because he lied to us — when you see that, and you still continue to vote for yourself, democracy fails.”

What else?

Later during the show, she insisted that the election uncovered the “true character” of many Americans.

“I’m not saying that if you voted for Trump that you are a racist, that you are a homophobe, that you are a sexist, that you are against transgender rights,” she countered. “But what I will say, if you voted for Trump, you then did look the other way at the fact that he is not allowing our transgender brothers and sisters from serving in the military, that he has called people from African countries that those people are from s**thole countries, that he has slandered women, that he has done all of these terrible, terrible things.”

She concluded, “If you voted for him, then all of those things are OK with you because of your own personal circumstances.”

Bari weiss Court packing Daily Beast Embarrasses Intelwars Sunny Hostin The View

Daily Beast embarrasses itself with entirely false story on court packing

The Daily Beast published a completely false story on Tuesday in an attempt to slam a former New York Times columnist, apparently taking the word of a co-host from “The View” in pushing Democrats’ newly manufactured definition of court packing.

What are the details?

Daily Beast senior writer Matt Wilstein wrote an article titled, “‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin Schools Bari Weiss on ‘Court Packing.'” But it wasn’t Hostin who did the schooling. In fact, Weiss is the one who gave “The View’s” entire panel a lesson.

Wilstein did not explain what court packing is for The Daily Beast’s readership, so TheBlaze reminds everyone that the term “court packing” goes back to when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (D) attempted to add justices to the high court in order to push through his agenda after the Supreme Court had determined parts of his New Deal were unconstitutional.

The concept of adding justices is considered highly controversial. In fact, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the past called Roosevelt’s attempt to pack the Supreme Court “a bonehead idea” that “put in question” the Supreme Court “for an entire decade.” Biden now refuses to say whether he will make the same move if he wins the White House.

During “The View” episode, Hostin, a legal analyst, argued, “We all know the Republican Party has been packing the Supreme Court for decades. They’ve been packing the judiciary for decades. [President Donald] Trump has put now three justices on the Supreme Court and just dozens and dozens of judges on the federal judiciary. So I think what we’re going to see is perhaps the Democrats unpacking the Supreme Court so that there’s more of a balance.”

Weiss explained, “Packing the Court is about adding more justices to the bench, which is something that people like [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.)] and [Rep.] Ilhan Omar [D-Minn.] are advocating for. Packing the court doesn’t mean appointing justices that some people don’t like.”

“I think where the conversation is right now, is about whether or not the Democrats — if they win the Senate and if Joe Biden wins — if they’re going to fundamentally change the nature of the court as Roosevelt once tried to do,” Weiss continued, noting that the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg also voiced opposition to packing the court last year when she told NPR that “nine is a good number.”

Weiss went on to call out Biden for refusing to “stand up to the left-wing flank of his party.”

“The fact that he has refused on the record to say whether or not he will pack the court I think is very suspicious to some people, and the fact that journalists aren’t forcing him to ask that essential question … is pretty ridiculous as far as I’m concerned,” Weiss said.

Hostin insists new definition of court packing means ‘balancing’

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg tried to provide cover for Hostin by stepping in and saying the legal analyst was referring to lower courts being packed. But Hostin stood firm, correcting Goldberg and saying, “I was talking about the Supreme Court.”

Hostin insisted this new definition of court packing actually meant “balancing” out the court for Democrats, pointing to a Newsweek article from another legal expert who also completely ignored where the term came from and what it means.

She explained to Goldberg:

“I was in particular talking about the Supreme Court being packed and I used those words very specifically. In order to unpack the Supreme Court, meaning unpack the culture, unpack the values that are on the Supreme Court—in order to do that you would have to add either term limits, age limits, or you would have to add justices, which would then balance the Supreme Court, which would lead to an unpacking.”

But Weiss was right. She and Hostin sparred over whether or not Biden should provide an answer on whether or not he would add justices, but Weiss was certainly not schooled, and she maintained the same opinion of others in the media, such as CNN’s Jake Tapper, who have said Biden should tell voters his plans on the issue before Election Day.

The Daily Beast failed to show Weiss was wrong

Not only did The Daily Beast article fail to explain court packing, it failed to show any evidence of how Weiss was wrong or “schooled,” and folks on social media took notice.

In response to the outlet’s Twitter post of the story, one person wrote, “When I first heard of the new rhetorical strategy to make up a new definition for court-packing I thought ‘there is absolutely no way anyone is stupid enough to buy this.’ I was wrong. Daily beast writers and readers are stupid enough to buy it. Fair enough.”

Another responded, “Makes the case for Civics Education in schools. And apparently, a badly needed requirement for snarky Daily Beast boys.”

Someone else added, “Here’s the thing– the lingo that Hostin is using is WRONG. Bari Weiss is describing it correctly. “Packing” means adding more judges to the court. “Un-Packing” doesn’t mean anything. It’s sad that he uses it as an opportunity to smear @bariweiss for getting it right.”

Someone else concluded, “Yeah…. Saw the segment. @bariweiss was correct. Perhaps you guys should change the title to your article. Sunny Hostin perhaps should go back and get ‘schooled’ on using terms with correct definitions. She looked foolish for it.”

Here is the exchange from “The View”:

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.”
