Of course, when anything of consequence happens, and the President does his job by responding to it, The View has to do their job and respond to him. Instead of focusing on the actual issue of the people who lost their lives, and the lives of their family members, these brilliant political analysts had to pick apart the way the President criticized the perpetrators.
Via The Blaze:
“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny hosted slammed President Donald Trump for not acting more “presidential” in his comments addressing Monday’s terror attack in Manchester.
About the attack that took at least 22 lives and injured scores more, Trump said:
“I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack and to the many killed and the families — so many families of the victims.”
“We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom. So many young beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life.”
“I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, losers, because that’s what they are. They are losers. And we will have more of them. But they are losers, just remember that.”
“Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed, we cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people. And in today’s attack it was mostly innocent children. The terrorists and extremists and those who give them aid and comfort must be driven out from our society forever.”
“This wicked ideology must be obliterated and I mean completely obliterated, and the innocent life must be protected. All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right our citizens to live in safety and in peace.”
“I didn’t feel that was presidential enough to respond to this kind of …” Hostin said about Trump’s remarks as she was cut off by co-host Joy Behar.
“It’s typical of the way he talks,” Behar interrupted.
Hostin continued, “Harkening back to President Obama, who talked about [Boston Marathon bombing] victims and talked about how we as a society have to come together. I was expecting something like that.”
Goldberg later added that Obama received heavy criticism for not being “strong enough” in his own response to terrorism.
“You can’t win, this is not an argument you can win,” she said. “It’s up to us to start to kvetch, and say we want more protection.”
Though conservative co-host Jedidiah Bila said that Trump’s words weren’t “aggressive enough,” she added that common folk can easily identify with Trump’s sentiments and vernacular.
“They’re sitting at home and they’re having a gut reaction and they’re feeling he’s speaking their language in many ways,” she said about Trump supporters. “Sometimes it’s real and authentic and it’s not polished.”
Conservatives on Twitter, however, weren’t having condemnation of the president by the women of the daytime talk show.
