The Democrats have endless advocacy programs on television.
ABC’s The View might be the most ridiculous of them all.
Now Whoopi Goldberg and The View have egg on their faces after one report.
ABC’s The View exists to spew DNC talking points to women who are watching daytime television.
The show pretends to provide balance by hiring one or two RINOs to serve as piñatas for the Democrat activists on the show.
The left-wing echo chamber causes the hosts to go on nonsensical rants that sometimes veer into actual slander.
And the show had to issue an eye-popping 36 legal notes to ensure that they could not get sued.
One of the legal corrections came after co-hosts slandered the conservative youth organization Turning Point USA (TPUSA).
“The View’s on-air legal corrections regarding TPUSA were the result of a threatened defamation suit but were only three of a total of 36 legal notes and statements the show was forced to issue in 2022 because of the cast’s reckless, hate-fueled, and dubious comments. Reviewing The View’s 36 legal notes, NewsBusters has noted that very few conveyed any genuine sincerity, and were instead openly mocked by the cast afterward. The Turning Point USA (TPUSA) saga was the most serious the show had been this year when issuing these legal notes.”
Regarding the TPUSA affair, co-host Sara Haines, one of the supposed moderates on the show, said, “So on Monday we talked about the fact there were openly neo-Nazi demonstrators outside the Florida Student Action Summit of the Turning Point USA group. We want to make clear these demonstrators were gathered outside the event and that they were not invited or endorsed by Turning Point USA.”
The drama did not end there.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg had to issue a boilerplate apology to TPUSA after she claimed, “You let them in and you knew what they were. So you are complicit.”
In Golberg’s “heartfelt” apology, she said, “My bad.”
Goldberg also tried to smear Florida governor Ron DeSantis with the bogus Nazi affiliation.
Perhaps the most absurd aspect of the saga is that there was evidence to suggest the neo-Nazi clowns that showed up at the event were actually Antifa radicals in disguise.
The show also had to issue legal notes regarding Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
The hosts accused her of conspiring to orchestrate the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th.
Co-host Sunny Hostin read the legal note, “Ginni Thomas has denied any conflict of interest between her activism and her husband’s position on the supreme court. She acknowledges attending the stop-the-steal rally, but says she left because it was cold, and denies she was involved in organizing it.”
The View just spouts off nonsense, and the legal department has to walk it back.
But few people see—or care—the legal correction.
The original shock content is what goes viral.
