On Wednesday afternoon’s episode of “The View,” host Whoopi Goldberg pressed presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders on why he remains in the race against former vice president Joe Biden.“I’m told that you intend to stay in this race because you believe there is a path to victory. I want to know what that path is because this feels a little bit like it did when you didn’t come out when Hillary Clinton was clearly the person folks were going for. So, can you explain why you’re still in the race and what this path is that you see?” the ABC host asked while broadcasting live from her own home, which she began doing in mid-March as the coronavirus spread through the country.Also Read: Sanders Wants to Delay April 7 Wisconsin Primary, Calls Situation 'Dangerous' (Video)Sanders, also calling into the show from his home, told Goldberg that when Clinton became the Democratic nominee in 2016, he “worked as hard as (he) could” to get her elected and Goldberg demurred, saying that while that was true, she felt it took him a “very long time to hop in.”When Sanders said he didn’t “accept that characterization,” she interrupted to ask, again, why he is staying in the race.“People have a right, last I heard, people in a democracy have a right to vote and they have a right to vote for the agenda that they think can work for America, especially in this very very difficult moment,” he countered. “We are assessing our campaign, as a matter of fact, where we want to go forward, but people in a democracy do have a right to vote and right now, in this unprecedented moment in American history, I think we need to have a very serious discussion about how they go forward.”In another interview conducted from his home Wednesday, the senator expanded on his position that Wisconsin’s April 7 primary should be delayed and voting should be done by mail-in ballots to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.Read original story Whoopi Goldberg to Bernie Sanders: ‘Can You Explain Why You’re Still in the Race?’ At TheWrap
During his appearance on Thursday’s episode of “The View,” Joe Biden responded to comments made by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh about Pete Buttigieg, saying that Buttigieg has “courage” and is “smart as hell.”On Wednesday, Limbaugh questioned Buttigieg’s electability on his radio show, describing the former Indiana mayor as “a 37-year-old gay guy kissing his husband on stage, next to Mr. Man, Donald Trump.”“What’s going to happen there?” Limbaugh postulated. He then prompted his audience to imagine Trump having “fun with that” during a general election battle against Buttigieg.Some, including “The View” host Joy Behar, felt Limbaugh’s “Mr. Man” comment was homophobic. During the Hot Topics section prior to Biden’s appearance, the panel reminded viewers that Buttigieg served in the military, while Limbaugh and Trump were disqualified from the draft due to medical reasons.“Pete and I are competitors, but this guy has honor, he has courage, he’s smart as hell,” Biden said of his rival. Both men are seeking the Democratic nomination for president.Also Read: Rush Limbaugh Diagnosed With Advanced Lung CancerLimbaugh’s comments came one week after he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Trump, the highest honor a civilian can be bestowed. Biden said the bestowment was “part of the depravity of this administration.”Returning to his defense of Buttigieg, Biden added: “We used to say in Claymont, Delaware, ‘He ain’t a…'” Biden trailed off. “I won’t get into it. I shouldn’t say it. I shouldn’t say it.”“We get it,” Whoopi Goldberg assured the candidate as the panelists pivoted to another topic.Watch the exchange below:.@JoeBiden reacts to Rush Limbaugh questioning Pete Buttigieg’s electability because of his sexuality: “Pete and I are competitors, but this guy has honor, he has courage, he’s smart as hell.” https://t.co/f8u2wbJuik pic.twitter.com/1ohsu7Wdpu\- The View (@TheView) February 13, 2020Read original story Joe Biden Responds to Rush Limbaugh: Pete Buttigieg Has ‘Courage’ and Is ‘Smart as Hell’ At TheWrap

During a chat with Andy Cohen on Wednesday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Meghan McCain criticized media coverage of inter-host drama on “The View,” and called Whoopi Goldberg her “anchor” at the show.“It’s really cruel,” she said of the way she sees the media handling her “very small fight” with former co-host Abby Huntsman, who stepped down from the show a few weeks ago. McCain insisted the two are very good friends to this day and that she found it “bizarre” to see a single fight, which she admitted did happen, blown up publicly and “weaponized” by the media.McCain also downplayed the fight with Huntsman, a fellow conservative, and the reports that she was going to leave the show before Huntsman did. McCain assured Cohen if she had plans to leave the ABC show, she wouldn’t be cryptic about it, so Cohen moved on to the next headline-making fight she had on the show: The time Goldberg said to her in December, “Girl, please stop talking.”Also Read: Watch Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain Make Nice After 'The View' Spat: 'Things Get Heated on This Show'“It was rough and I will say that she was having a bad day and we talked about it that night and the next day.
