Have you ever read a story about something stupid that Joy Behar or Whoopi Goldberg said while on the set of The View and thought to yourself, “how on earth is that show still on the air?”
Earlier this month, Whoopi Goldberg took part of the show to criticize Vice President Mike Pence for demonstrating what she considered to be a lack of respect for North Korea by not standing up during the entrance of the country’s Olympic athletes. “We have to be respectful because what we do know about politicians is they end up sitting with people that you and I say well, why are they sitting with them? So, if you’re in Korea, you need to stand up. You need to stand up and show respect,” Goldberg said, apparently not even considering how foolish such a statement really is. (Related: There’s a reason why Whoopi Goldberg made Natural News’ Celebrity Hall of Shame list back in 2015.)
The reason Whoopi Goldberg’s criticism of Vice President Mike Pence was foolish is twofold. First of all, North Korea isn’t exactly a friend of the United States; as a matter of fact, over the past several months, they have been making numerous threats against our country and working diligently to develop weapons that can reach U.S. soil. Why on earth would the vice president of the United States stand for a regime that wants to bring about the destruction of America? Respect is earned, and if there’s one thing that North Korea has shown us as of late, it’s that they most certainly do not deserve our respect.
Second, did Whoopi Goldberg have anything to say about “respect” when the congressional Democrats sat like a bunch of whiney snowflakes during President Trump’s State of the Union address? Was she as outraged over the Democrats not standing in support of President Trump as she was about Vice President Mike Pence not standing for a murderous, tyrannical regime? The answer is no, of course not. Whoopi Goldberg is a partisan hack who cares more about viciously attacking those on the right than anything else.
Astonishingly, the hosts of The View have found themselves surrounded in controversy even more recently than this. Over the past few days, ABC News has been flooded with more than 25,000 angry phone calls in response to a comment that Joy Behar made regarding Vice President Pence’s Christian views, in which the liberal host suggested that Pence has a “mental illness” for speaking with Jesus. (Related: Joy Behar of The View is an enabler of fake news after defending her colleagues and their bogus lies on so-called “Russian collusion.”)
The comment was so absurd that it prompted Vice President Pence to respond to it on C-Span. “To have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong,” Pence said. “It is simply wrong for ABC to have a television program that expresses that kind of religious intolerance.”
With criticism pouring in from every corner of the country Joy Behar had no choice but to (sort of) apologize: “I don’t mean to offend people but apparently I keep doing it,” Behar said. “It was a joke.”
We the people aren’t laughing, Joy, and quite frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Time and time again, The View exposes itself for what it really is: A show that consists of five women, the majority of whom are radical leftists or worse, hellbent on advancing the progressive agenda through lies and deception while trashing anyone who considers him or herself to be a conservative. How the show is still on the air after it has been surrounded by this much controversy is anyone’s guess.
