‘The View’ Co-Hosts Panic Anti-Israel Protests Will Distract Voters from Jan 6

The co-hosts of “The View” raised concerns that the ongoing anti-Israel protests on college campuses could distract voters from the Democrats’ anti-Trump Jan. 6 narrative.

Tension flared during Friday’s broadcast of the controversial ABC show.

The co-hosts discussed the anti-Israel protests on college campuses nationwide and panicked about how it could impact the coming November elections.

They clashed with each other on multiple points concerning the demonstrations.

While brushing aside the victims of these protests, the hosts’ main concern was that the imagery of the chaos on campus would help President Donald Trump’s re-election chances.

Co-host Sunny Hostin sparked the debate on both topics.

Hostin expressed visible anger at co-host Sarah Haines for bringing up the fact that people may be distracted from the January 6 Capitol protest because of these new chaotic images.

Elsewhere, Hostin causing a stir by saying the pro-Hamas student protesters are being “victimized” by police.

The arguments over the protests began after a discussion of an upcoming Trump donor event.

As Slay News reported, the 45th president has invited several possible running mates to the event and will be looking to vet his potential vice presidential nominee.

Despite most of the co-hosts on “The View” mocking Trump’s legal woes and his potential running mate picks, Haines burst the bubble.

Haines noted that many are being driven to attend the fundraiser because of the chaos they’re seeing on the news stemming from the campus protests.

“One of the people with this event said donors are flocking to this event due to the horror of nightly images they see on TV,” Haines said, which appeared to frustrate Hostin.

The co-host interrupted Haines, asking:

“Do they not remember the visuals on January 6th?

“Do they not remember those visuals of chaos?”

“I think – I think, in the human – literally, humans look at the recent visions,” Haines argued.

“So, nightly image right now matters more to them than January 6th.”

Hostin forcefully shot back, “January 6th is ingrained in my memory and it should be ingrained in every single person’s memory in the United States of America.”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin acknowledged Hostin’s point.

However, she bolstered Haines’ argument, adding:

“It should be, but while there are completely different –  a lot of the imagery looks similar and it was, you know, you’re going to see Republicans seeing windows being smashed, things being defaced on college campuses and it evokes that same sense of lawlessness.”

After discussing some of the violence and destruction that has gone on during the campus demonstrations, Hostin said the anti-Israel agitators have faced violence and fear.

“There are also anti-protesters that have come in and caused violence to these encampments,” Hostin said.

“Let’s not forget that part of the story.”

Co-host Joy Behar cut in, stating, “You know what?

“There are a lot of parts to this story.”

Hostin continued, “Can I just also say this?

“Let’s also remember that these kids that are protesting grew up with active fire drills, and for them to be subjected to the type of police violence that we are seeing on the nightly news is something also…”

She was then cut off.

Sympathizing with the university students who can’t get to class because of the protests, Haines pushed back on Hostin’s point.

“There are also students that can’t get across campus,” she said.

“The antithesis of freedom of speech is threatening someone, they have to say what you believe to cross the campus.”

“That’s also problematic,” Haines declared.
