The View Explodes at Open Schools and DeSantis Win Predictions

Political News

With Election Day just two weeks away and 2024 looming large, Tuesday’s edition of ABC’s The View saw the liberal cast members growing increasingly terrified of a red wave sweeping the nation, particularly regarding Florida where Republican Governor Ron DeSantis was looking like he was cruising to reelection. But Whoopi Goldberg raged at such predictions and didn’t want to hear them. She and the rest of the liberals angrily rejected the broad public opposition to school shutdowns.

They opened the show by trying to suggest DeSantis didn’t win his debate against Democratic opponent Charlie Crist, with Joy Behar claiming DeSantis looked like he had “a stroke.” Meanwhile, they were defending Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman, who actually had a stroke and was struggling to function.

After their desperate attempts to tear DeSantis down, self-described conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin popped their bubble by noting: “Florida is where Democrats may be misreading the political mood more than anywhere.” She explained that “Ron DeSantis has consistently performed ten points up over Charlie Crist,” and even “50 percent of Hispanic voters in the state of Florida supported” flying illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

Pointing to the writing on the wall, including how “Florida is the state that the most people are flocking to,” Farah Griffin deduced that “he’s going to win the state of Florida.”

This TRIGGERED co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who flew into a rage and decried any prediction of how the race would turn out. She then urged people to get out and vote:

Well, you know what? Until you can say that you can see the crystal ball, nobody knows who’s going to win the state of Florida. Nobody knows. I mean, that’s the thing – And I always say this to everybody for a reason, because I feel like, it is a responsibility for us to remind everyone that it’s your job to get out and vote in your state, it’s your job.

After conceding that “we’ve seen crazy things happen in the final days” of an election, Farah Griffin proposed that DeSantis was doing well because he refused to shut down schools and the economy during the pandemic. “I know many voters who have said, ‘I will never vote for a politician who kept kids out of the classroom.’ We’ve seen the stats now about how much it’s put our kids behind, losing nearly a year of education,” she explained.

Aggressively rejecting the idea that there was a way to keep kids in school and healthy, Goldberg responded by screaming and seemingly suggesting that kids would have fallen dead in mass if they were to attend school:

GOLDBERG: Except the children are alive now because we kept them out of the schools!

FARAH GRIFFIN: Yeah, but there was a way to do it right.

GOLDBERG: No, there wasn’t a way! If there had been a way to do it right, the guy that you were over there would have done it right.

Downplaying how countless students are struggling academically, Goldberg scoffed saying, “Yeah, it’s going to be a little harder to get them to pull them up where they are. But they’re here and that’s the difference.”

As a long-ago former teacher, Behar’s big idea was that “they just leave everybody back a year.” “What’s the big deal?” she seriously wondered. “Well, they should have listened to me,” she huffed.

For her part, racist, multimillionaire co-host Sunny Hostin, who has made it no secret that she’s an oppressive helicopter parent, declared that “It’s more important to kid keep those kids safe” than make sure they were getting a proper education. “But at least they have their kids,” she would add later.

Despite hearing facts from Farah Griffin about successful in-person education programs, Goldberg grew more enraged and fully rejected reality:

FARAH GRIFFIN: I work with all of school choice organizations, though, that did hybrid education. They did some in-person education. They gave home school parents the resources that they need. The idea that we just give up on kids for a year – You can protect their health while educating them

GOLDBERG: No you couldn’t! If we could’ve figured out how to do that – If we had known what we were dealing with, if we had that crystal ball I asking for we would have had this information but we didn’t.

They’re so scared of Republicans winning big in November, and are so poorly informed on COVID, that they trying to get people to subscribe to a psychosis that says there are no reasonable ways to live.

This open hostility to open schools and DeSantis were made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Purina and Red Lobster. Their contact information is linked.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: I do think that Florida is where Democrats may be misreading the political mood more than anywhere. Ron DeSantis has consistently performed ten points up over Charlie Crist. Even on the issue – which I’ve spoken out against. I hated the flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, I thought that was ridiculous theater. 50 percent of Hispanic voters in the state of Florida supported that action.

By in large, Florida is the state that the most people are flocking to, four times more than any other state. So, you can call him “DeathSantis,” you can call him whatever you’d like, he’s going to win the state of Florida.

SARA HAINES: But I thought that was for tax relief?

FARAH GRIFFIN: [Tries to answer]

WHOOPI GOLDBERG [interrupting]: Well, you know what? Until you can say that you can see the crystal ball, nobody knows who’s going to win the state of Florida.

JOY BEHAR: No.

SUNNY HOSTIN: That’s true.

GOLDBERG: Nobody knows. I mean, that’s the thing – And I always say this to everybody for a reason, because I feel like, it is a responsibility for us to remind everyone that it’s your job to get out and vote in your state, it’s your job.

[Applause]

[Crosstalk]

FARAH GRIFFIN: And you absolutely are right. And we’re still a couple weeks out from [the] election and we’ve seen crazy things happen in the final days.

But one of the things that I feel very strongly about that I think DeSantis has done right is he tried to keep kids in the classroom during COVID. I know many voters who have said, “I will never vote for a politician who kept kids out of the classroom.” We’ve seen the stats now about how much it’s put our kids behind, losing nearly a year of education.

[Crosstalk]

BEHAR: Well, they should have listened to me—

[Crosstalk]

GOLDBERG: Except the children are alive now because we kept them out of the schools!

FARAH GRIFFIN: Yeah, but there was a way to do it right.

GOLDBERG: No, there wasn’t a way! If there had been a way to do it right, the guy that you were over there would have done it right.

FARAH GRIFFIN: Well, we pitched him a lot of ideas he didn’t take. There were a lot –

GOLDBERG: I know you did but the people that did it right saved those kids’ lives. Yeah, it’s going to be a little harder to get them to pull them up where they are. But they’re here and that’s the difference.

[Applause]

FARAH GRIFFIN: But I think kids deserve better –

BEHAR [interrupting]: At the time that that was happening, I said why can’t they just leave everybody back a year. Now, in some situations they are exactly doing that, not everybody, but most kids who are falling should be held back a year, that’s all, you graduated at 18 instead of 17. What’s the big deal?

HOSTIN: It’s more important to kid keep those kids safe.

FARAH GRIFFIN: I work with all of school choice organizations, though, that did hybrid education. They did some in-person education. They gave home school parents the resources that they need. The idea that we just give up on kids for a year – You can protect their health and while educating them

GOLDBERG: No you couldn’t! If we could’ve figure out how to do that – If we had known what we were dealing with, if we had that crystal ball I asking for we would have had this information but we didn’t. And people did the best they could; in the great states that did it, in the bad states that didn’t get it together the way they should’ve. Everybody did their best.

[Crosstalk]

HOSTIN: And their best [inaudible] misinformation from the Trump administration!

BEHAR: Trump didn’t do his best! I’m sorry [to Haines].

GOLDBERG [to Haines]: I’m sorry.

HAINES: The people that took the biggest hit though were the ones without money, the socioeconomic lowest among us are the ones because they didn’t have the access of the electronics to do —

HOSTIN: But at least they have their kids.

GOLDBERG: We’ll be right back.
