‘The View’ Goes Nuts Over Hillary Comments in India: ‘The Clintons Are a Virus’

‘I don’t know why she was answering these questions….I don’t know why she was there’
By Grabien Staff


GOLDBERG: “I don’t know what’s worse. But between Steve Bannon and Hillary Clinton, they’ve got folks all fired up over comments that they made about the election, particularly with Hillary when she spoke at a conference in India over the weekend. Here’s hat she said.”

CLINTON: “His whole campaign, make America great again, was looking backwards. You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You don’t like women getting jobs. You don’t want to see that indian-american succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it. So it was — a symptom. It was also a cause.”

GOLDBERG: “Now — she also said she should have been more entertaining on the campaign trail.”
BEHAR: “Yeah.”
GOLDBERG: “What you to think?”
HAINES: “I think her whole answer was looking backwards. That was in 2016. Why are we still talking about the campaign? She wrote the book. It gave a — [ applause ] A bit of catharsis. Her side of what went down. That’s great. I think part of what people discovered in that election, if you Lind democratic is that the party didn’t have messaging. It missed a lot of things.”
BEHAR: “Why can’t she talk?”
HAINES: “She can. But she’s very influential.”
BEHAR: “Probably. I’m sure she was there for a reason.”
HAINES: “The best answer the to give would be this. You know what. We have a lot of problems. I would like to talk about those. That was yesterday.”
GOLDBERG: “Either for that, too.”
HAINES: “I would much rather see a leader come out and talk about the things that are broken. That aren’t working.”
McCAIN: “She ran one of the worst campaigns ever. Didn’t do the ground game in Wisconsin and North Carolina she could have. I think at this point, if you can’t stop making this about virtue signaling an race. A lot of it was about poverty. The economy. A lot of it was anti-washington sentiment. Anti-establishment sentiment we should have seen growing with the tea party. Honestly, I have to tell you. It’s one thing to lose to President Obama. It’s an entirely other thing to pull off losing to president Trump. And you gotta come up with a better excuse than this. Ky say one thing.”
BEHAR: “Some of the things she said, all those things are true. Don’t forget Comey interfered in the election. And the Russians were interfering 100 percent in the election. And —“
McCAIN: “She’s blaming married white women.”
BEHAR: “You don’t like to hear me say this, but she did win by 3 million more votes.”
McCAIN: “And I’ve told you — (Applause) — Is that the commentary of someone who feels good about themselves in their lives and their future? We had Chelsea Clinton on last week. The Clintons are very omnipresent in politics still right now. If your messaging is that you want to go back in time, that women can’t think for ourselves, that our husbands, bosses, and our sons tell us what to do, that’s quite a message going forward in the midterms and the general election.”
HOSTIN: “I was wondering where she got that from. I was like, ‘Why are you saying, as a feminist, someone who likes to uphold women’s rights, why are you saying that women are just voting the way their men vote?’ But what I found, and hopefully —“
GOLDBERG: “They said that about Obama.”
HOSTIN: “Here it is. So — a study from the Institute for Social and Economic Research, that’s what she’s referring to, reported that married men tend to favor Republican presidential nominees for economic reasons and their wives in general join them in support of their husbands’ economic interest. That’s where she’s getting that argument from.”
GOLDBERG: “Yes, but the argument doesn’t hold water whether you say black people voted for Obama because he was black or you were going to vote for a woman because she’s a woman. It doesn’t hold up. Things were missed. This was the best poop storm you could have. This last election was a poop storm. You had the Russians involved, you got this involved... But then I think everybody just needs to stop talking. I don’t know why she was answering these questions. I don’t know what was asked of her, I don’t know why she was there. And — yeah, we have to stop looking back. But, it’s impossible not to look back because you have to look back to see where we stumbled.”
HOSTIN: “Yes.”
GOLDBERG: “You have to look back and see.”
McCAIN: “I have to tell you some hard truth. The Clintons are a virus in the Democratic Party. You have to move on. If this is your messaging going into 2020 — Joy agrees.”
BEHAR: “I thought it was time for them to back off right now. Right now. I don’t think they’re helping the party right now.”
HOSTIN: “Her message is —“
McCAIN: “Bill Clinton with his me too —“
HOSTIN: “Wait a second. Can I say something? Her message resonates with me, at least. And I think many people. She’s saying that trump is talking about making his campaign promise was making America great again. That was very dog whistle for me. When was America great? When my community didn’t have civil rights? [ Applause ] When my community was a slave? When women didn’t have rights? When, President Trump, was America great?”
McCAIN: “As joy and I talk about often off camera. Politics is a street fight. You want to win, this message is losing. You just lost an important election to a reality television star. If the Democrat party is the party of the heathens, it’s not your — we’re going to have trump for another four years.”
[ Bell ringing ]
GOLDBERG: “Okay. Okay. Okay. We’re going to take a break. We’ll be right back”
