The View has found its voice with its Trump era tackling of politics

President Trump's grievances with Disney CEO Bob Iger have to do with Jemele Hill, Joy Behar, Keith Olbermann and Kathy Griffin
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said today the White House isn't defending Roseanne Barr's "inappropriate" comments. Rather, she said Trump's tweet this morning about not getting an apology from Iger over "the HORRIBLE statements" said about him was an attempt to point out media bias against him. “The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying the most horrible things about this president and nobody addresses it,” Sanders said. “Where was Bob Iger’s apology to White House staff for (ESPN’s) Jemele Hill calling the President, and anyone associated with him, a white supremacist? To Christians around the world, for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness? Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the President on The View after a photo showed her holding President Trump’s decapitated head? And, where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the President as a Nazi, even expanding Olbermann’s role after that attack against the President’s family? This is the double standard that the President is speaking about." ALSO: Jimmy Kimmel mocks Trump's tweet demanding an apology from Iger.

Meghan McCain's addition has made The View compelling thanks to her constant fighting with Joy Behar
"When McCain and Behar fight, there’s no one you agree with and no one you adamantly disagree with, because both sides are normally a little wrong," says Kayla Cobb. "There’s just a lot of yelling, gas-lighting, and confusing arguments. It’s like watching the most uncomfortable parts of a Thanksgiving dinner screaming match."

Mike Pence criticizes The View for "insult" about his religion
Joy Behar earlier this week said the vice president must be suffering from mental illness if, as Omarosa said, "he thinks Jesus tells him to say things." Pence was asked about Behar's comments by Axios. "I actually heard that ABC has a program that compared my Christianity to mental illness," he responded. "And I'd like to laugh about it, but I really can't." He added: "I have to tell you — to have ABC maintain a broadcast forum that compared Christianity to mental illness is just wrong. And it's an insult, not to me, but to the vast majority of the American people who, like me, cherish their faith. My Christianity is the most important thing in my life."
