“The View” Slams Donald Trump Easter Tweets, Poor White House Egg Roll Planning – WATCH VIDEO
“The View” co-hosts on Monday all slammed Donald Trump for his Easter tweets and his poor planning of the annual White House egg roll. Check out the video below.
On Sunday, one day after the “Tax March” protests against Trump, the president fired off tweets complaining about the demand for his returns and questioning whether the demonstrators were all paid. He also once again touted his election win, and tweeted about North Korea and military action. Now on the ABC talk show, Sunny Hostin took offense to Trump’s rant, given the holiday.
“What really got me is he ran on this faith-based campaign, and Easter Sunday, Resurrection Sunday, is the most holy, religious day of the Christian faith. And the fact that rather than tweeting about new beginnings and hopefulness… he’s tweeting about taxes and protests and North Korea… I found it so disrespectful,” she complained. Hostin also wondered how Evangelicals who have supported Trump felt about the timing of his missive, but Sara Haines pointed out that his devout supporters “looked past” many questionable things during the campaign.
Still, she acknowledged, “I was just surprised he was tweeting. Even Jesus rested on the seventh day.” Jedediah Bila also admonished, “He needs to understand people have a right to protest… He needs to ignore it, he needs to respect it, and he needs to get to the work he’s supposed to be doing.” And if he wants to the tax topic to disappear, she asked, “Wouldn’t it make sense for him to just stop talking about them?”
As the live show aired, Trump was at the White House Easter event, and the program showed footage of Melania Trump nudging her husband to put his hand to his heart during the National Anthem. “What is wrong with him?!” a disgusted Joy Behar asked after watching the clip.
The panelists also ripped the First Couple for their belated planning of the annual event. “There are some traditions you have to pay attention to,” Whoopi Goldberg insisted, further saying of Melania, “Someone needs to get her with the program.” Watch below.
