Absurd: ‘View’ Hosts Say Smollett’s Fake Hate Crime ‘Made Sense’ ‘Believable’

absurd:-‘view’-hosts-say-smollett’s-fake-hate-crime-‘made-sense’-‘believable’

Just when you think the hosts of The View can’t get any more divorced from reality, they do. The liberal hosts defended the media and Democrats, on Friday’s show, for their ardent defense and belief in actor Jussie Smollett’s fake hate crime story that quickly unraveled back in 2019.

The actor, who accused Trump supporters of assaulting him in the middle of the night in downtown Chicago, was indicted Thursday on five counts for lying to authorities and staging the alleged crime. But the liberal hosts of The View were shocked by the news because Smollett’s bizarre story was realistic and “made sense” to their Trump-deranged minds.

Friday co-host Ana Navarro was saddened by the news because, she argued, the actor’s story was so ”believable.” “Look, I think — when it first happened I think it was unimaginable to anybody that it could be a hoax, and um frankly, you know, I think that for a lot of people it read believable, that there could be hate crimes because there are hate crimes against minorities and against LGBTQ,” she began, before urging real victims of hate crimes to not let this deter them from making them public.

Sara Haines was the only host to call out the media and politicians who rushed to report and share support for Smollett as soon as his story came out, before verifying if it was true. “The part that jumped out at me the most about this story though was the rush of leaders across this country to do the right thing on Twitter and make sure they spoke up immediately in defense before knowing everything. We had the president,” she started, before Behar cut her off.

Since Haines was the only one with an ounce of common sense, her irrational co-hosts of course pounced. Behar defended the media and Democrats buying the story. “Well it made sense. That’s why,” she insisted. But Haines pushed back, saying that rushing to judgement on social media wasn’t wise:

Yeah, but when you approach anything that happens you need to bring the information in, you need to respond not react. Everyone across the board reacted very quickly and impulsively on Twitter. I just think it’s a reminder that you can’t dial that back in, so if a narrative goes in and you endorse it, when things come out –

Again, her co-hosts jumped on her. “Sarah, we’re living in a period where it wasn’t unimaginable that a black LGBTQ  person could get beat up — and I think that’s what people reacted to,” Ana Navarro huffed.

Navarro went on to gripe about conservatives on Twitter pointing out Democrats who immediately put out statements in support of Smollett. She made a garbage analogy saying Republican politicians who took photos with Josh Duggar, when he worked for the Family Research Council, years before allegations of molestation and child pornography came out, were in the same boat as the Democrats who voiced support for Smollett:

You know what let me say this– Sunny I’m sorry I’m cutting into your time– I saw yesterday a lot of reaction, you know, on that point on Twitter of people wanting to own the liberals who had reacted in support of Jussie Smollett. Well yesterday, also Josh Duggar got found guilty and got convicted of child pornography. Guess what? There are pictures all over all online with him of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee. [applause] So here’s the bottom line. It’s not their fault, that Josh Duggar was a pornographer and they didn’t know. And it’s not you know, Kamala Harris’s fault or Joe Biden’s fault, or Cory Booker’s fault, or anybody’s fault that their natural reaction was to empathize with somebody that we all at first thought was the victim of a hate crime.

But her analogy doesn’t even make sense, as Duggar wasn’t accusing others of a hate crime against him before the truth came out, as in Smollett’s case. Nor is anyone arguing that sympathizing with an alleged victim is a bad thing. But Smollett’s story wasn’t realistic in the slightest and was clearly a political stunt intended to make Trump supporters look like violent bigots, and the biased media wanted to believe it instead of investigate what the truth was.

Sunny Hostin also defended Democrats for buying the story without verifying: “I was going to say exactly that, we want victims of hate crimes and any crime to be believed. And so I think in a sense that was a good thing they came out and said we believe you.”

ANA NAVARRO:  Look, I think — when it first happened I think it was unimaginable to anybody that it could be a hoax, and um frankly, you know, I think that for a lot of people it read believable, that there could be hate crimes because there are hate crimes against minorities and against LGBTQ, and the big message that should come out for everyone is it should not deter people of victims of real hate crimes from reporting it. I think for Jussie Smollett, it would serve him well to accept responsibility. To pay back the city of Chicago for all the time and resources they spent investigating this false accusation. And to show a little humility and remorse. Because sentencing is coming and you know he keeps sticking to the story, when there’s a copy of the check he paid these brothers to beat him up. 

SARA HAINES: …I think the problem that bothers me here with this story, the biggest thing for a victim of any abuse or hate crime is that they won’t be believed. I think when stories like this come out, the damage is in planting a small seed that could potentially make someone not be believed when it happens. The part that jumped out at me the most about this story though was the rush of leaders across this country to do the right thing on Twitter and make sure they spoke up immediately in defense before knowing everything. We had the president — 

JOY BEHAR: Well it made sense. That’s why.

HAINES: Yeah, but when you approach anything that happens you need to bring the information in, you need to respond not react. Everyone across the board reacted very quickly and impulsively on Twitter. I just think it’s a reminder that you can’t dial that back in, so if a narrative goes in and you endorse it, when things come out — 

NAVARRO: Sarah, we’re living in a period where it wasn’t unimaginable that a black LGBTQ  person could get beat up — and I think that’s what people reacted to.

HAINES: I know why it happened. I think it’s important– 

NAVARRO: You know what let me say this– Sunny I’m sorry I’m cutting into your time– I saw yesterday a lot of reaction, you know, on that point on Twitter of people wanting to own the liberals who had reacted in support of Jussie Smollett. Well yesterday, also Josh Duggar got found guilty and got convicted of child pornography. Guess what? There are pictures all over all online with him of Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee. [applause] So here’s the bottom line. It’s not their fault, that Josh Duggar was a pornographer and they didn’t know. And it’s not you know, Kamala Harris’s fault or Joe Biden’s fault, or Cory Booker’s fault, or anybody’s fault that their natural reaction was to empathize with somebody that we all at first thought was the victim of a hate crime.

BEHAR: It’s Twitter’s fault anyway. It’s Twitter.

[cross-talk]

HOSTIN: I was going to say exactly that, we want victims of hate crimes and any crime to be believed. And so I think in a sense that was a good thing they came out and said we believe you.

What I hope really is to see some contrition, because sentencing is coming up and we know that he’s facing as much as three years in prison and if drugs were involved. If other things were involved. What I’d like to see when he arrives before the sentencing judge is, complete contrition and um penance. For him to say, maybe I was on drugs I made the wrong decisions here. I wish I would have done things differently, I lied, and forgive me. 

BEHAR: He may get there. He may get there.

HOSTIN: I’d like to hear that. If he gets there then I think there’s place for forgiveness, right? In our country. 

BEHAR: For the Duggar also? 

HOSTIN: Well–

NAVARRO: A child pornographer? 

BEHAR: I’m asking the question. 

NAVARRO: I’m a lot more likely to have forgiveness for somebody who played a hoax on himself and hurt himself than on somebody who was trafficking in child pornography. 

BEHAR: Right, of course.
