‘The View’s’ George H.W. Bush Tribute Devolves Into Shouting Match
The Daily Beast - Matt Wilstein - link

<tste>

If there was one thing it seemed most Americans could agree on this weekend it was that former President George H.W. Bush was generally a good man who had the country’s best interest at heart.

And yet, somehow, the hosts of The View still found a way to turn his tribute into an argument on Monday morning.

Things started off cordial enough with moderator Whoopi Goldberg noting how the remembrances from Presidents Clinton and Obama have helped remind us “how you can still not agree with somebody but be respectful of somebody.”

“He seemed to be coming from a loving, kind place also,” Joy Behar added of Bush Sr. “That's what I’m gleaning from what they're talking about, that he was loving.”

“He was also known for his humility as president,” Meghan McCain added, noting that as our last combat veteran to be elected “he was there to serve the people.”

The unspoken contrasts with America’s current president continued as Abby Huntsman highlighted Bush’s 73-year marriage to Barbara Bush, who died eight months earlier, and his dealings with the media. “I loved his relationship with the press because we talk about that a lot on this show—they were tough on him, it's not like they were easy—but he had such a respect for what they did,” she said.

This led Behar to bring up another aspect of Bush’s legacy that has not gotten as much attention over the past few days.

“As a candidate he said, ‘Those who think we're powerless to do anything about the greenhouse effect are forgetting about the White House effect.’ Then he signed into law the Clean Air Act amendment of 1990, one of the most sweeping environmental statutes ever.”

She then made the Trump comparison explicit. “This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter, it will be about pollution and the greenhouse effect and the fact that—”

And just like that, she was interrupted by McCain. “Can we focus on the president, please? I don’t want to talk about Trump.”

“Well, I do for a second, so excuse me!” Behar said. “Excuse me a second, please!” When McCain she was not “not interested in your one issue,” Behar replied, “I don't care what you’re interested in because I’m talking!”

“Well I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy!” McCain shot back as Goldberg hastily threw to commercial.

There isn't enough coffee in the world to cure Behar of her TDS.

Short of drowning her in it, that is.

That is a waste of good coffee, but I would make the sacrifice to shuffle her off the mortal coil.

She’s not the only one. Going to be a lot of toxic leftists pretending to say nice things about the 41st President this week just as a creepy way to bash the 45th.

I have some lead ingots for casting bullets that I'd donate to the cause as ballast.

That show would have a lot more credibility if they'd stop cutting to a commercial whenever the discussion gets a little heated, it's almost like they don't want viewers to see Behar get put in her place.

We will see the exact same thing when President Trump passes away. They will say nice things about him while bashing the current crop of evil Republicans.

Now it's safe to pay tribute now that President Bush is a good Republican.

“how you can still not agree with somebody but be respectful of somebody.”

I disagree; dems only feign respect in public because they fear backlash from voters seeing how vile they truly are. Conservatives are that way because of having some measure of tolerance, forbearance, and a sense of decency in their personalities.

Years ago, I read a couple Bernard Goldberg books.

He was a CBS correspondent who wanted to expose the bias in the media.

Anyway, he had special scorn for Barbara Walters, which kind of surprised me, and isn't she the person behind "The View"?

Now I see what his insight was.
