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.

Thirty years since 'Ghost' changed pottery wheels forever, Tony Goldwyn looks back at playing the loathsome Carl opposite Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.
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.

Like, Whoopi is the anchor of the show and my life there and she always picks us up if we’re down,” she added.Read original story Meghan McCain Lashes Out at ‘Cruel’ Coverage of ‘The View’ Drama: ‘We All F– Up on the Show’ At TheWrap
