‘The View’ Host Forced to Credit Trump for Attending Wake of Slain NYPD Officer While Biden Fundraises with Celebrities

One of the co-hosts of “The View” was forced to give President Donald Trump credit for attending the wake of slain New York Police Officer Jonathan Diller.

Anti-Trump co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin admitted that Trump understands what “resonates” with middle America.

Farah Griffin acknowledged that Trump understands this better than Democrat President Joe Biden.

Trump attended the wake for Diller on Thursday and met with the late NYPD cop’s family.

Diller was killed by a career criminal during a traffic stop on Monday.

Trump was invited to the event and a campaign spokesperson earlier this week said he was “moved by the invitation.”

The 45th president posted about Diller’s death on Truth Social, offering prayers to Diller’s family and appreciation for law enforcement.

He also called the shooter a “thug” and noted that police said Diller’s alleged shooter, Guy Rivera, had numerous prior arrests.

Rivera “NEVER should have been let back out on the streets,” Trump asserted.

Diller, a married father of a one-year-old boy, was allegedly shot dead by Rivera, 34, during the traffic stop.

Rivera allegedly opened fire on Diller after he ordered the suspect to get out of the car.

Meanwhile, Biden will be busy hosting a glitzy fundraising event at New York City’s Radio Music Hall on Thursday.

The event will be attended by former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton as well as A-list celebrities.

Farah Griffin, a former Trump aide who plays “the conservative” on “The View,” was asked to comment on the “optics” behind these decisions during an appearance on CNN Thursday morning.

The political commentator conceded that it would benefit Trump with the average American voter.

Farah Griffin remarked:

“Donald Trump, the master spinner, is going to say, ‘You, elites in New York with celebrities are raising these high-dollar donor money, while I‘m in New York to honor a fallen New York police department officer, who was killed by somebody who‘d been arrested on 21 times previously.’

“To the average American, the Trump-curious voter, this is what they want to see from him.”

Farah Griffin also claimed the decision to attend the fallen officer’s funeral will also serve as “a distraction” from Trump’s hearing in Georgia today.

“I have to say Donald Trump is getting smarter,” she continued.

“This is his third time running now, he knows what he‘s doing in a way that there‘s a sophistication that wasn‘t there.

“And I do think this works.”

Trump was using the same “playbook” he used for his 2016 campaign, she claimed.

This “move” would “resonate” with voters, she added.

“He‘s always had his finger on the pulse of what middle America actually cares about,” Farah Griffin said.

“A slain officer who the person killed him shouldn‘t have been out, that’s something that resonates more than a bunch of celebrities at Radio City Music Hall,” Farah Griffin concluded.


Rivera, who was in the passenger seat when the vehicle was pulled over by Officer Diller, had at least 20 prior arrests, according to New York City Mayor Eric Adams.

A Trump spokesperson said Wednesday that the 45th president was invited to attend the wake.

Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s campaign spokesperson, said in a statement on Wednesday:

“President Trump is moved by the invitation to join NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller’s family and colleagues as they deal with his senseless and tragic death.”

Meanwhile, Biden will be hosting a star-studded fundraising extravaganza in NYC attended by Obama and Clinton.

A conversation between the three Democrat presidents will be moderated by leftist late-night TV talk show host Stephen Colbert.

The event will also feature musical performances by Lizzo, Queen Latifah, Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo, and Lea Michele.
