“The View” co-hosts were repulsed by President Donald Trump’s attacks on Joe Biden’s sons during the first debate.

The president interrupted Biden as he talked about his late son Beau, who died from cancer in 2015, and changed the subject to his younger son Hunter’s past problems with substance abuse.

“There was another one that horrified me,” said co-host Sara Haines.

“I literally had, like, a visceral reaction of disgust in that moment,” she added. “I had other moments like that, but that one got me last night that he just so freely didn’t lose a beat in doing that in regards to his family.”

Host Whoopi Goldberg praised Biden’s restraint in the face of those brutally personal attacks.

“It may get worse, but I have to say I’m proud of Joe Biden because he could have turned around and said, ‘Let’s talk about your kids,'” Goldberg said. “You see, that’s the kind of stuff I would have done. ‘Let’s talk about your kids. Have any of your kids gone to give service? Have any of your children — anybody?’ See, he didn’t do that. He could have done that, but he didn’t. No, never did.”

The return of the gatekeepers: how the press corrected the narrative in the 2020 election

Published

on

The Washington Post reported on July 13, 2020 that President Donald J. Trump had made more than 20,000 false or misleading claims during his presidency's first term. "The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a whole new genre of Trump’s falsehoods. The category in just a few months has reached nearly 1,000 claims, more than his tax claims combined. Trump’s false or misleading claims about the impeachment investigation — and the events surrounding it — contributed almost 1,200 entries to the database."

Trump pushes closing claim that ‘suburban women are STRONG’ for his campaign

Published

on

President Donald Trump continued to ignore polling data to push his conspiracy theory that Joe Biden will destroy the suburbs and that is why suburban women are backing him.

None of that is true, there is no evidence that Trump's return to redlining policies will destroy the suburbs. And Trump has consistently polled poorly with women, which is a major reason Republicans are fearing that the 2020 election will be a bloodbath for their party.

On Sunday, Trump ignored all of that to push his conspiracy theory again and to falsely claim he's winning the support of women in the suburbs.
