‘The View’ Goes Off the Rails Over Trump, Clinton, Complicity — and ‘Horseface’ Stormy

ABC's Joy Behar actually targeted supporters of the president and insisted he is 'training American kids to disrespect women' and 'to be racist'

Just when you thought the liberal co-hosts of ABC News’ “The View” couldn’t go any lower, they not only analyzed the “Donald Daters” app for President Donald Trump-supporting singles, but they also wound up clashing about Trump supporters, former President Bill Clinton’s scandals, and the president’s “horseface” criticism of porn star Stormy Daniels.

“What are the questions [on that app]? ‘Do you get hot from a dictator?'” co-host Joy Behar (pictured above center) asked.

Co-host Meghan McCain (above right) interjected, “Oh, my God.”

“I mean, what are the questions? ‘Do low taxes turn you on?'” Behar continued on that path.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg offered a more measured view of the Donald Daters site and whether conservatives and liberals could form romantic relationships. “I mean, we’ve known couples who haven’t necessarily seen eye to eye on that,” she said.

Co-host Abby Huntsman (above left), the most recent addition to the show, noted she has single friends who work in the Trump administration and at Fox News, and they “often tell me about their dating life, and it’s not easy,” she said. “They say that when they go out on a first date, they either have to make up what they do or who they voted for, what their political views are — or when they do express what they are, they don’t get a second date.”

“What if [at] this table everyone said the same thing, thought the same thing? I don’t want to live in that world. I actually find it so refreshing when people come together and date [people of] different political parties,” Huntsman added.

Behar insisted, “This table is different. I can disagree with Meghan. It doesn’t mean I want to sleep with her.”

After the co-hosts laughed about that one, McCain said, “I’m sorry, you don’t know what you’re missing, Joy.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin agreed with Behar, telling McCain, “I don’t know that we could live together. I love you, but I don’t think I could live with you.”

“Poor Meghan. No one wants to sleep with her,” Huntsman said as the co-hosts began laughing again.

After McCain noted she’s already married, Goldberg attempted to bring some purpose back to the conversation.

“Listen, I’ve lived with people that I didn’t agree with. I’ve done that, you know, and the idea that you feel like you need to only be with someone who thinks as you think is kind of restrictive in the world,” she said.

Huntsman said it’s a “really dangerous thing” if people “want to live in a world where you only watch Fox, you only watch MSNBC, you only surround yourself with people who think and believe the same things you do.”

But Hostin remained unconvinced, saying it would be “difficult” to live with someone or have a relationship with someone who harbors vastly different “fundamental” values.

It didn’t take long after that for Behar to target Trump supporters, saying, “We’re not talking about Republicans and Democrats. We’re talking about Donald Trump people who believe what he believes.”

After Huntsman insisted, “They’re not all bad people,” Behar replied, “They may not be bad people, but they’re not offended by calling a woman a ‘horseface.'”

Trump targeted Stormy Daniels in a tweet on Tuesday with that moniker. Daniels, who’s represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti, claims to have had an affair with Trump during his marriage to first lady Melania Trump. The president has consistently denied that.

Trump jubilantly tweeted after a judge dismissed Daniels’ defamation case against him and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

“‘Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials [sic] lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.’ @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!” Trump wrote.

Huntsman pushed back on Behar, insisting that “many Trump supporters” do not support “everything that comes out of his mouth and everything that he tweets.”

That’s when Hostin declared, “Aren’t you complicit if you still support him?”

Huntsman fired back, “Well, are you complicit in voting for Bill Clinton?”

“Bill Clinton never called anybody ‘horseface,'” Behar said, as the conversation turned toward the cultural impact of Clinton’s affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky. “When Bill Clinton did his dirty work, kids believed that oral sex was not sex for a while.”

McCain agreed, saying, “I learned about oral sex because of that.”

Although Behar said she “deplores” the “horrible influence” Clinton’s affair had on American kids, she managed to maintain that Trump has done and said far worse things.

“This guy is training American kids to disrespect women … call them names, to be racist in many ways, to be bullies, even though his wife says, ‘Be best and don’t bully,'” Behar claimed, adding, “We’re voting him out.”

McCain launched into a passionate speech about how “we’re a country full of independent thinkers and strong people” who “lived through a Civil War” and can “survive” Trump’s presidency.

Goldberg attempted to regain control of the segment, concluding that “you can love people who think differently. You can love people who look differently. You can love people who are nothing like you.”
