The women on ‘The View’ Are a very vocal and opinionated bunch. I suppose that is the schtick of their show, however, it does not take much to send these ladies over the edge.
The women of The View are melting down over Kyrsten Sinema’s announcement that she is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming an Independent. She will continue to caucus with the Democrats and Chuck Schumer says she will get to keep all of her committee assignments. The Democrats cannot afford to make her angry because she is up for reelection in 2024 and if she runs as an independent, she will probably not have a primary opponent and in a three-way race, the Republicans would have a huge advantage in the general election.
“It’s an interesting thing that she’s going through in her head. It’s like, ‘OK, this party has nothing. They have nothing. No platform. All they do is hang out with Nazis, and white supremacists. And the other party actually is doing something for people like us, for the working families, for gay people, for voting rights, and then she’s like, ‘What should I do?'”
Sunny Hostin, meanwhile, accused Sinema of simping for support:
“I was looking at her unfavorably she’s viewed: 55% of women don’t like her, 53% of men, 56% of white voters, 54% of Hispanic voters. I think she’s like, ‘Who’s gonna like me?! So let me become independent, so maybe that I can get those independent voters, and maybe I can get those Republican voters, and maybe they’ll love me.”
Ana Navarro even claimed that Sinema’s decision was self-serving:
“This is a reflection of the fact that she was about to lose the primary.”
“Sunny, you were saying, you know, ‘It’s because nobody likes her so she’s maybe trying this group.’ I don’t think voters are that one-dimensional. I don’t think that just changing her title or party is going to make a voter say, ‘Oh great, you’re now like one of us.'”
“She said, at one point, ‘In catering to the fringes, neither party has demonstrated much tolerance for diversity of thought.’ Right now if you are not with us, you’re against us. It’s too simplistic for the way we all operate, and the way politics should be.”
“The moderates are growing and the idea of coming more to the center is actually more in touch with the pulse of the country.”
The segment on Friday’s show discussing Sinema’s departure began when Joy Behar accused Sinema of cutting short Democrats’ celebration of winning a 51-49 majority in the Senate with Sen. Raphael Warnock’s victory in Georgia on Tuesday. Although Sinema is not joining Republicans, Behar condemned Sinema as if she were.
In fact, Haines said that she herself is an independent for many of the same reasons that Sinema cited for leaving the Democratic Party. That alone puts Sinema “in touch with the pulse of the country.”
Though she is officially leaving the Democratic Party, Sinema will still caucus with Democrats.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, in fact, has already said that Sinema will retain her committee memberships, which includes being chairwoman of two Senate subcommittees.
I know it happens all the time, but I still get a tingle of excitement as the ladies of The View melts down like a Hershey bar in Death Valley. I just wonder if they realize just how pathetic they are.
