The View hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar admitted they were still in denial over Hillary Clinton’s loss to Trump.
It seriously begs the question, and I’d like to quote Clinton herself, ‘At this point, what difference does it make?’
Honestly. To what end will the blame be rather than admit she was the problem and it was her that lost.
We’ve blamed almost everyone and everything. We’ve blamed it on Russia. We’ve blamed it on the DNC party. We’ve blamed websites and news outlets.
The fact that we’re still even talking about this is… How does Trump put it? #SAD
Some not-so-interesting quotes from the video should you not wish to stab your eardrums at the sound of their voices:
But let’s be realistic. Do you really think she was going to win? Based on everything that the Democrats did when they let Obama — left him out there floating and the flotsam and jetsam and all this stuff that Fox News did and all those folks. You know, there have been very few eight years of one party and eight years of the same party. It doesn’t generally go back to back. The last time I think was Nixon and whoever came in after him was the last. Ford. And he pardoned. That was the last time we had a long stretch. When it wasn’t Democrat, Republican, Democrat Republican. So given all the crap that Obama had to eat from his own party, I don’t think Bernie was going to — I don’t think any Democrat was going to–people were going to vote —
Whoopi on the idea that there was some sort of secret as to why Clinton would lose –
I believe that was not going to happen. The truth of the matter is, if this election happened in any other country the way it happened here, we would have sent people to go and check. To see what was going on.
Behar taking a page from Clinton’s book on playing the blame game –
But don’t forget the things that we do know are that Comey released this information about her two weeks or a week before the election. That was very detrimental to her campaign and everybody who was on the fence said well — and they’re saying crooked Hillary. And they’re saying ‘Oh yeah crooked Hillary’ and he confirms it in a way and he says nothing about the Trump investigation and then you have the Russians interfering with our election. There were so many things that went against her that I think she has every right to write a book and speak about it.
Exchange between hosts that it was rigged –
FARIS: I think at some point you also have to take responsibility and I think if she would say, you know what, I lost fair and square, I think the problem is —
WHOOPI: But we don’t know that she did lose fair and square. See that’s the thing. That’s what I’m saying.
FARIS: Hence when you play a game, you’re gracious in victory and you’re gracious in defeat. There’s nothing more annoying when you start to blame everybody else. You need to take some responsibility for what you did on the field.
WHOOPI: But your children aren’t playing on a game field where the parents are coming and hitting the ball for them. And then saying we won. My simple point is this, had this election happened anywhere else the way it did, we as America would have gone in to check and see all the checks and balances. We’ll never know what happened and now is the time for her to say ‘this is how I feel about what went on and I don’t like this happened and this is how I feel and this is how it felt to me. This is how I see it’ and she has a right to do that.
