We knew the liberal nitwit hosts of The View would lose it if Donald Trump got elected, but even we had no idea their reaction would be this bad.
IJ Review reported that Whoopi Goldberg called the election result “shocking” while Joy Behar said she was “slowly getting drunk” as the election night coverage went on.
“It was a rough night for everybody I think. We’re worried, the people are worried,” Behar said. “You know, okay, he’s the president, now what? We’re watching you, okay?”
Behar went on to say that what really scares her is the idea of a Republican-controlled White House, Congress, Senate and, potentially, the Supreme Court. Former Fox News contributor Jedediah Bila jumped in to explain that within the Republican Party, there are “bold differences” among conservatives:
“You have a Libertarian wing of the party, I’ve always said, ‘How does John McCain and Rand Paul wind up in the same party?’ They disagree fundamentally on foreign policy issues. I mean, Hillary Clinton was far more hawkish in her speech than Donald Trump was. So, I think there are a lot of checks still. I think the Republican Party is trying to figure out who they are and what they stand for, and Donald Trump will want to do some things in that party that some people will not approve of and will stand up against.”
Co-host Sarah Haines described Trump winning as a “punch in the gut.” The only person on the panel who seemed happy with his win was Candace Cameron Bure, an outspoken evangelical Christian and Republican. Bure was afraid to speak her mind on Wednesday, given the fact that she was surrounded by closed-minded liberals.
“I was a person that voted on policy, and so in that sense, I am happy with the result,” she said. “And yet, if anything, I hope, no matter what side you were one, it brings all of us as a people to a horizontal posture — brings us to our knees, our face to the floor, that we pray for our country.”
