‘The View’ Reacts: Sarah Palin Visits White House With Kid Rock, Ted Nugent (VIDEO)
On Friday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Sarah Palin visiting the White House this week with Kid Rock and Ted Nugent. Watch the video below.
The former Republican nominee for vice president and two conservative musicians spent hours with President Donald Trump on Wednesday night. The group shared dinner with the president, toured the White House grounds and posed for photos in the Oval Office. Naturally, the women of “The View” had plenty to say about the trio’s headline-making visit during a “Hot Topics” segment on the daytime talk show.
Joy Behar opened the discussion by humorously asking the panel, “So is this the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1814?” Sunny Hostin responded, “I think so. I think what was so offensive to me is Sarah Palin said that she brought [Kid Rock and Nugent] because ‘Jesus wasn’t available.’” The lawyer further noted how Palin previously slammed President Obama for lacking “class and decency” by inviting rapper Common to the White House, but her guest Nugent once called the former president a “subhuman mongrel.”
The co-hosts next slammed the former Alaskan governor and two rockers for seemingly mocking Hillary Clinton while posing in front of her official portrait from when she was first lady. “You’re in the White House. Bring a little class with you when you come,” insisted Sarah Haines. But Paula Faris made the counterpoint, “I agree that there has to be a certain sense of reverence, but I do think that there is a little bit of selective outrage and I think free speech is free speech.”
Jedediah Bila, however, went on to argue that showing inappropriate disdain for a former first lady discredits one’s political views. “If you’re making political arguments against the Obama administration… it undermines what you’re saying if you’re doing stuff like this,” the co-host asserted. And finally, Behar simply deemed the trio “sore winners.”
