The View Trump Congress Speech

(ABC)

“The View” co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump’s Congress speech on Wednesday. Watch below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump addressed a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night, giving his most important speech since Inauguration Day. It was wildly different in tone, with the president this time embracing a theme of unity. Still, many celebrities reacted to Trump’s address negatively.

Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg kicked off the discussion by saying, “I think he struck a more optimistic tone, but people are questioning — Is this theater?” Joy Behar thought, as compared to his inaugural speech, “This one was de-Bannonized.”

“I think that’s true actually,” Jedediah Bila agreed. She went on to say, “This, for me, was more optimistic. I thought he reached across the aisle on policy.” Sunny Hostin noted, “He talked a lot about Ivanka Trump’s pet projects… I think we saw her hands a lot in that speech, and that was heartening to me.”

But Behar and Goldberg thought Trump was still full of contradictions on things like hate crimes and climate control. “Don’t listen to what he’s saying. Listen to what he’s doing,” the former stressed. Sara Haines, too, wasn’t sure about Trump’s “sincerity,” but said the speech was “better than he’s been.” Still, she admitted, “I don’t think his heart is going to change.”

Bila further said, “I’m hoping that he realizes he is everyone’s president.” Behar shot back, “It’s nice of you to think there’s an actual core of self in the man. He doesn’t care about anything, in my opinion. There’s no there there. [It was] a different speech writer.” Goldberg agreed, and went on to say, “There’s a lot to praise about Donald Trump, but I haven’t found it… I’m concerned.” Check out the video below.
