The View Ivanka Politics


On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Ivanka Trump saying she tries to “stay out of politics.” Watch the video below.

At the start of the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg said she saw something last night that left her so flummoxed, she had to email the other panelists to find out if she was “crazy.” What was it she watched? A clip of the First Daughter, who is an official adviser to the president, saying in an interview, “I try to stay out of politics.”

“How can a presidential adviser not want to talk politics? Am I crazy?” Goldberg asked her colleagues. Responded Jedediah Bila, “No. You are not crazy, in my opinion. When I heard this I was very confused.” Bila pointed out that Trump has said she wants to work on various issues, but those are policy matters. “What is she not getting? All of these things are political,” Bila said, adding, “If she didn’t want to be in politics, she shouldn’t have taken the job.”

Declared Joy Behar, “That goes double for her dad!” Sunny Hostin commented, “What’s misleading is she’s benefitting from her political appointment,” pointing out Trump’s meetings with various foreign leaders who do business with her company. “She is in fact extremely political, but she’s political and she has a lot to gain personally, and that’s a real problem,” said Hostin.

Sara Haines agreed, saying that Trump can’t just talk about issues, because “they need policy instituted to further them.” She also objected to her and her father repeatedly talking about how they pulled off the presidential campaign. “But that doesn’t give him a credibility of policy, of politics, how to lead,” she argued, insisting, “You can’t keep saying that.”

Behar assured Goldberg, “So the answer is, you’re not crazy, Whoopi.” The moderator replied, “I’m thrilled. Because sometimes I think to myself, ‘Really? Does anybody else see this?'” Behar went on to say, “It’s interesting that Jared and Ivanka were supposed to be the liberal counterparts. They were supposed to be the sanity in the White House. P.S. They’re not!” Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
