Donald Trump Slams ‘The View’ As “Total Disaster” That’ll Be “Taken Off The Air”
Donald Trump slammed “The View” on Thursday, calling the show a “total disaster” that “will soon be taken off the air.” The GOP presidential frontrunner targeted the daily talk show again after the women on the show went after guest Dr. Ben Carson for endorsing his former rival.
While the show was still airing live and Carson was in the midst of defending his support of Trump, who was called a “liar” and “racist” by the show’s panelists, the Republican candidate hit back in a series of tweets. Trump first said that the show “is failing so badly that it will soon be taken off the air,” adding that producers are “constantly asking me to go on. I TELL THEM NO.” That was followed up by a second message that read, “Explain how the women on The View, which is a total disaster since the great Barbara Walters left, ever got their jobs. @abc is wasting time.”
As Gossip Cop reported, this is not the first time Trump has blasted “The View.” Back in January, the panelists took Trump to task for wanting to see the birth certificate of Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada. In response, the Republican presidential candidate went after his two biggest critics on the show. He wrote, “Joy Behar, who was fired from her last show for lack of ratings, is even worse on @TheView. We love Barbara [Walters]!” He added in another tweet, “The @TheView @ABC, once great when headed by @BarbaraJWalters, is now in total freefall. Whoopi Goldberg is terrible. Very sad!”
