‘The Candidate Is Joe!’ Hostin SCREAMS at View Cast to Shut Up, Get Behind Biden

The liberal ladies of ABC’s The View had a particularly volatile reaction to former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie telling the network that President Biden was “past his sell-by date” and to get a different candidate. It culminated in staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin screaming at the panel and demanding everyone shut up, get in line, and stop speaking ill of Biden immediately.

After playing a soundbite of Christie, moderator Whoopi Goldberg could barely gather her thoughts before speaking. “You know what, ooh, my goodness gracious,” she stumbled to speak.

Once she got her footing, Goldberg bizarrely argued that Biden “kicked butt a couple days ago” and “did better” than former President Trump in the South Carolina primary. “You know, nobody knows what’s coming, but, you know, you can’t tell Democrats to get –” Goldberg began before being interrupted by apparent involuntary convulsions [see included video].

Holding up Biden’s primary results in South Carolina and comparing them to Trump was bizarre because there was nothing to compare them to. The Republican presidential primary wasn’t scheduled until February 24, over two weeks away.

“You know, I do not like when Republicans tell Democrats what they need to do in their house,” Hostin indignantly chided. “Why don’t Republicans sweep their own Trump trash first in this house and then give Democrats advice.”

Hostin’s indignation was fairly hypocritical since she and The View have a habit of telling Republicans what to do with their house. Last month, the cast bashed Iowa Republicans for voting for Trump, they said they wanted former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley to stay in the race to annoy Trump, and they literally begged former Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney to run third party to pull GOP away from Trump.

In whining about Christie not naming a Democrat to replace Biden with, co-host Joy Behar tacitly admitted that Democrats don’t have a bench of politicians that could step up. “Why go on TV and say somebody else without naming? Who? FDR? He’s dead. Okay? The good ones are all gone,” she said.

Faux-conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin ridiculously suggested they could put up a “generic Democrat” like Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the COVID tyrant.

As the conversation went on, Hostin became triggered and started screaming that they should shut up and get behind Biden. She even started spewing falsehoods about how good a president he was:

HOSTIN: There isn’t going to be another candidate! The candidate is Joe Biden!

GOLDBERG: So, suck it up!

HOSTIN: He has run this country well! He has so much to run on! He’s got a better economy, inflation is down, job growth, more job growth than any other president in the past couple of decades!

BEHAR: His infrastructure bill.

HOSTIN: Infrastructure bill.

BEHAR: Created jobs.

In reality, Biden couldn’t legitimately take credit for the number of jobs created since the vast majority of those were people being allowed to return to work after the pandemic. He also couldn’t reasonably be given credit since he (and his supporters in the liberal media, like The View) spent the first three years of his presidency claiming there was nothing he could do about inflation since the office supposedly didn’t hold that kind of power.

“He has a platform to run on! The Republicans have zero to run on!” Hostin continued to scream. “The best candidate that the Republicans could come up with is Donald Trump! So, again, Republicans do not give Democrats advice!”

(…)

CHRIS CHRISTIE: I like President Biden personally. Always have. But, you know, past his sell-by date.

[Cuts back to live]

[Audience gasps]

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: You know what, ooh, my goodness gracious.

JOY BEHAR: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: First of all, what are you talking about?! He did — he kicked butt a couple days ago.

SUNNY HOSTIN: South Carolina.

GOLDBERG: He did better than you-know-who did. Okay? So, it’s not –

[Applause]

You know, nobody knows what’s coming, but, you know, you can’t tell Democrats to get – [starts convulsing] Look, you take it.

HOSTIN: Okay, I have the same thought. You know, I do not like when Republicans tell Democrats what they need to do in their house.

(…)

11:04:47 a.m. Eastern

HOSTIN: Why don’t Republicans sweep their own Trump trash first in this house and then give Democrats advice.

BEHAR: To his credit, Chris Christie has been sweeping a lot of dirt about the Republicans and, you know, I like Chris Christie but —

HOSTIN: I don’t understand that, Joy.

BEHAR: Why go on TV and say somebody else without naming. Who? FDR? He’s dead. Okay? The good ones are all gone.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: The bigger problem too, because I actually agree with him. I think a generic Democrat would do better —

BEHAR: Who. Give me a name.

FARAH GRIFFIN: Throw – I mean – Gretchen Whitmer –

(…)

11:07:21 a.m. Eastern

HOSTIN: There isn’t going to be another candidate! The candidate is Joe Biden!

GOLDBERG: So, suck it up!

HOSTIN: He has run this country well! He has so much to run on! He’s got better economy, inflation is down, job growth, more job growth than any other president in the past couple of decades!

BEHAR: His infrastructure bill.

HOSTIN: Infrastructure bill.

BEHAR: Created jobs.

[Crosstalk]

HOSTIN: Wait a second. He has a platform to run on! The Republicans have zero to run on!

BEHAR: Nothing. Nothing.

HOSTIN: The best candidate that the Republicans could come up with is Donald Trump! So, again, Republicans do not give Democrats advice!

[Crosstalk]

SARA HAINES: Just have a fair, open conversation. What Alyssa is bringing to the table is something you see all over, people are talking about this. This isn’t a fringe idea.

HOSTIN: There was a Quinnipiac poll that just had Biden beating Trump.

[Crosstalk]

HAINES: The ratings are 37 percent.

[Crosstalk]

FARAH GRIFFIN: There is another poll that has him losing in every single battleground state by double digits to Donald Trump.

[Goldberg shouting over them to stop talking about polls]
