Thursday, The View hosts, like the rest of the liberal media, were still reeling over the close presidential race. Pretending like they haven’t spent the last four years attacking President Trump’s supporters with vile names, the haughty hosts boasted how they would refrain from calling his voters “racists” but insisted they were “selfish” people who didn’t care about the “plight” of their fellow Americans.
The co-hosts started off the show complaining about how sad it was to see half of America doesn’t agree with them politically. “It’s such a disheartening — this election was disheartening in many ways because we see that half the country ignores the terrible things that he’s done for whatever reason!,” co-host Joy Behar griped.
Fellow co-host Sunny Hostin was more forceful, saying half the country was “selfish” and “un-American” and didn’t care about anyone but themselves:
….[F]or 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. Yet 50% of America saw all of that and looked the other way to their brothers and their sisters and said, I’m going to vote for him anyway, and that is really disheartening because for me, that means that you are selfish, right? I’m not going to say that 50% of Americans are racist and sexist and homophobic, but I will say that 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 okay and that they will do better under that type of presidency, and that I think is despicable. It is un-American.
But more tolerant liberal co-host Sara Haines pushed back on Hostin’s claims, saying that everyone is selfish because they vote for the issues that are important to them. But Hostin didn’t want to hear that and insisted that our democracy would fail unless every American was united behind liberal policies on gender, immigration, and blaming Trump for a worldwide virus:
But the problem, Sara, though is that our very democracy is founded on the notion of collective — 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. So when 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 that 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 this president could not control it because he lied to us, when you see that and you still continue to vote for yourself –
Behar echoed her co-hosts’ self-righteous sentiment that they shouldn’t call Trump voters names but they needed to be called out for being brainwashed by conservative media to vote against their own interests:
There’s no reason to call people names, Sara. I agree with what. What I don’t understand is how the Republican party has persuaded the working person that you’re referring to, to vote for a party that does nothing for them. A party — that stands against unions, for instance. A party that stands against the minimum wage or worker protections. They have been totally brainwashed by the Republicans to think that they’re the party that’s going to help them when, in fact, we have seen evidence that that is not true. So I don’t want to call anybody any names. What I want people to do is educate yourself about the truth and stop watching these outlets that are lying to you. That’s all.
After more scolding from Hostin about the “character” of America being exposed, Behar ended the segment demanding conservatives have a “come to Jesus moment” for their sin of voting for the President:
A lot of people in this country need to have a come to Jesus moment and look in the mirror and see what they did. She’s right about a lot of it. Again, we don’t call people names, but look in the mirror. Did I vote because of my pocketbook and did I ignore the fact that children are being separated from their parents? Did I vote because of I don’t want black people moving into the suburbs and ignore the fact that black people are always behind the eight ball in this country and can’t get a leg up because of my votes?
