‘The View’ Spreads COVID Misinformation, Defends Sotomayor’s Falsehoods

‘the-view’-spreads-covid-misinformation,-defends-sotomayor’s-falsehoods

According to the rules the left set up at the start of the pandemic, spreading COVID misinformation was an offense that should get you kicked out of society. But the rules don’t apply to them as Monday’s edition of The View demonstrated; as co-host Whoopi Goldberg speculated she got COVID from the wind after opening a window and gave it co-host Ana Navarro “through the camera.”

Meanwhile, co-host Sunny Hostin stepped up to the plate to defend Justice Sotomayor who was called out last week for spreading her own misinformation. She went on to deny the science of the CDC’s revised isolation guidelines without evidence to support her claims.

Near the top of the show, the cast was going around talking about how they felt while they recovered from their cases of COVID-19 (the entire cast is boosted). “Yeah, it’s crazy. And Ana, you tested positive last week. I feel like I rubbed off on you through the camera, how you feeling,” Goldberg declared as she looked for Navarro’s input.

After Navarro explained how she was “little stuffy” and spent her isolation “watching TV, reading, and eating popcorn,” Goldberg chimed back in to suggest COVID was just in the air and not just around people.

“You got to watch television, redesign stuff because it feels like it’s everywhere, eventually something — I feel like I open the window and got COVID because it was just going by on the waves, in the wind,” she stated.

Hostin also took the opportunity to virtue signal and brag about staying isolated for the outdated 10-day recommendation by the CDC:

So that’s how I kept myself, you know, I kept myself busy for ten days but I didn’t isolate just for five days like the current CDC guidelines. I wanted to make sure that I was testing negative before I went out of my little room and out of my isolation. So, you know, I guess things are being advised a little differently now. But I kept myself kind of busy.

After coming back from a commercial break, Hostin dove in to defend the Supreme Court Justice for spreading misinformation during the oral arguments for President Biden’s vaccine mandates. And the crux of her argument was that Sotomayor might be wrong factually but she’s correct in spirit.

“Well, first, I want to re-frame this a little bit about Justice Sotomayor,” she said. “Because while she may not be accurate for current hospitalizations in children, she is correct that we have more children in the hospital now more than ever before.”

Ignoring the fact that the Justice wrongly claimed there were 100,000 kids hospitalized and on ventilators, Hostin suggested: “it certainly reflects the current cases in children.” Adding: “Right now, we have over 82,843 children sick with COVID. More than 1,000 children have died from the virus. In addition, about 7.8 million children have caught COVID since the pandemic started.”

“And so, that’s a real thing and those are real numbers,” she indignantly huffed at critics.

Hostin then denied the science that the Omicron variant has a quicker life cycle and a patient is no longer infectious after 5 days:

The other thing that I want to say, I’m really concerned about this CDC guidance. I know that the science is evolving and I know our knowledge is evolving, but now the CDC is saying, after five days of being infected you don’t have to test negative, you can go out, you can go back to work and wear mask. 

I don’t believe that,” she sneered without evidence. “I think after five days if you’re not testing you can certainly still be infectious and you can certainly still spread the virus the other people.”

WHOOPIE GOLDBERG: Yeah, it’s crazy. And Ana, you tested positive last week. I feel like I rubbed off on you through the camera, how you feeling?

ANA NAVARRO: You know, I’m feeling pretty good, I probably sound a little stuffy and my hair and makeup is not on point today because I did it myself and this is not something I do well.

I’ve been isolating. You know, I think it’s very confusing to keep up with the guidelines. So, when I started feeling bad I started isolating. I went upstairs. I’ve done a lot of reading this weekend, which I don’t usually read fiction. I love this book: Olga Dies Dreaming. And been binge-watching stuff.

So, Sara has been organizing and doing constructive stuff, I have been watching TV, reading, and eating popcorn.

GOLDBERG: Well, I mean, that’s the thing, you know, if you find yourself, you know, coming down with COVID or having to isolate because you’ve been around somebody with it, then you got to spend some time figuring out how am I going not become cranky or get really crabby or nasty to people.

You got to watch television, redesign stuff, because it feels like it’s everywhere, eventually something — I feel like I open the window and got COVID because it was just going by on the waves, in the wind.

Sunny, you look terrific. So, I know you’re feeling better.

SUNNY HOSTIN: I am feeling better, I got COVID right before our Christmas break or during our Christmas break. And I will say I watched this incredible streaming series Love Life. The first and second season. I binged that and I’m writing my second book, Summer on Sag, and so I got a lot work done on that. And I also learned, I taught myself this African dancing from these TikTok videos.

So that’s how I kept myself, you know, I kept myself busy for ten days but I didn’t isolate just for five days like the current CDC guidelines. I wanted to make sure that I was testing negative before I went out of my little room and out of my isolation. So, you know, I guess things are being advised a little differently now. But I kept myself kind of busy.

HOSTIN: Well, first, I want to re-frame this a little bit about Justice Sotomayor, because while she may not be accurate for current hospitalizations in children, she is correct that we have more children in the hospital now more than ever before. And it certainly reflects the current cases in children. Right now, we have over 82,843 children sick with COVID. More than 1,000 children have died from the virus. In addition, about 7.8 million children have caught COVID since the pandemic started.

And so those are just the numbers and so, while fewer than 83,000 kids have been hospitalized with the virus we have kids sick with COVID more than we ever had before. And so, that’s a real thing and those are real numbers.

The other thing that I want to say, I’m really concerned about this CDC guidance. I know that the science is evolving and I know our knowledge is evolving, but now the CDC is saying, after five days of being infected you don’t have to test negative, you can go out, you can go back to work and wear mask. I don’t believe that, I think after five days if you’re not testing you can certainly still be infectious and you can certainly still spread the virus the other people,
