Much like half of our fair country, the producers of The View are not pro-President Sexist-Egotistical-Lying-Hypocritical-Bigot. (I’m speaking of Dabney Colemen of course.) How do we know this? It’s because they’ve supplemented conservative host Meghan McCain (who loathes President Trump and the White House for constantly shitting on her father, Senator John McCain) with ANOTHER conservative host who happens to hate Trump. Her name is Abby Huntsman and, get this, she’s coming over from Fox News!
In case you missed our link to Towleroad about this mess, The View hosted Fox News commentator, Jeanine Pirro, who is a judge? Or something? Because they call her Judge Jeanine Pirro? She was on to talk about politics and plug her new book Liars, Leakers and Liberals. She was on for two segments and the first one shit is contentious and you can TELL something is bubbling up on the surface.
Donald Trump definitely spent 90% of his morning and afternoon (okay, 100% of his morning and afternoon) sounding out the words while writing, “invoise 2 Stormee Danyulls: one millyun dollers 4 openeneng up yr hor mouf on tevees,” on his presidential stationary today. Because Stormy Daniels violates the NDA she signed with Trump every time she publicly talks about their alleged one-night fuck. And she earned herself another $1 million violation today when she talked about it on The View with her panty cream-inducing stubble head lawyer Michael Avenatti.
Stormy didn’t really say anything she hadn’t already said on 60 Minutes, but she did bring the pecking hens of The View something new. She brought them a sketch of the goon she claims threatened her and her daughter. The sketch has got the internet playing a big ole’ game of Harpo, Who Dis Goon?
The View hasn’t had a good brawl since Whoopi Goldberg battled intelligence with that “rape rape” comment. Joy Behar and Meghan McCain were generous enough to give the viewing audience an exciting callback to the “Rosie O’Donnell prepping to devour Elisabeth Hasselbeck“-era by throwing down on Friday’s episode.
On Monday, Megyn Kelly used her time on Megyn Kelly TODAY to slap back at Jane Fonda. Jane has been scratching at Megyn ever since Megyn asked her about her plastic surgeries during an interview in September. Megyn probably high-fived herself in the mirror after her Jane takedown, but not everyone thinks what Megyn did was totally badass. Specifically, former TODAY co-anchor Ann Curry.
The View has always sort of been like the Bermuda Triangle of daytime talk shows. Every year, a co-host will find themselves wondering why their nameplate is no longer on their dressing room door and wondering where all their stuff went before they’re escorted out of the studio by building security, never to be heard from again. It was rumored last week that political TV person and Senator’s daughter Meghan McCain would be the latest famous butt to fill a seat at The View table left vacant by Jedediah Bila.
