CNN's Van Jones Called Out By 'The View' Hosts' for Political Flip-Flopping

CNN commentator Van Jones was called out by the hosts of The View while making an appearance on the show on Friday morning (February 5) to talk about his new documentary.

Jones co-produced a documentary about American “unity” with The View co-host Meghan McCain, but his record was called out by some of her co-workers.

Sunny Hostin said, “Now Van, you do spend a lot of time threading the middle and trying to unite people. But there are those who accuse you of being a political opportunist—a chameleon, so to speak—who provided racial cover for former, disgraced, twice impeached President Trump.”

Sunny brought up how Van said Trump doesn’t get “enough credit” for his work helping the Black community. She continued, “Yet just recently you cried on CNN when Joe Biden was elected the 46th president, and you said it’s easier to be a parent now, character matters now, truth matters. You even mentioned George Floyd and said a lot of people felt they couldn’t breathe. People in the Black community don’t trust you anymore. What is your response?”

Sunny Hostin Reveals Both Her In-Laws Passed Away from Coronavirus

Sunny Hostin is opening up about losing both her mother and father in-law to complications caused by coronavirus.

On Friday (January 8), The View co-host shared that both of her husband’s parents passed away during the holidays.

Sunny told viewers that even after rigorous contact tracing she still doesn’t know how they contracted the virus. “They were both physicians and they were both very careful,” she said. “They didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving with us because we all decided it wasn’t safe.”

She went on to thank the healthcare workers who took care of her in-laws and her fellow co-hosts for their support, as well as remind viewers to take the pandemic seriously. “We want everyone to know that you may think you’re healthy and you won’t be impacted,” she said, “But you may be an asymptomatic carrier. You could put someone you love at risk.”

Joy Behar did not hold back on The View in a moment that has now gone viral on Tuesday (January 5).

The longtime co-host sparred with Meghan McCain, who returned from maternity leave on Monday (January 4).

“On the one hand you have the Republicans,” Joy said, “and on the other hand you have the seditionists…Among the Democrats you have the progressives and the moderates which is de rigueur.”

Meghan interrupted, saying, “Are you kidding me?,” but then, Joy responded, “Excuse me, I’m not done.”

“Well it’s just that’s completely inaccurate. Joy you missed me so much when I was on maternity leave – you missed fighting with me,” Meghan said.

“I did not,” Joy said in response. “I did not miss you. Zero.”

“That’s so nasty,” Meghan retorted. “That’s so rude. That’s, like, so nasty.”

Whoopi Goldberg then interjected, “This is not the way to do it and I’m going to now become Whoopi and say Sara I’d like to hear from you right now.”

The Real Reasons Why Abby Huntsman Quit 'The View' Reportedly Revealed

The View hasn’t been without controversy over the years, it appears as if one of the show’s most recently departed co-hosts, Abby Huntsman, left over a reported toxicity.

In the new book, “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View” by Ramin Setoodeh, we learned about the conversations Abby had with producers.

Abby, who had spent just over a year on The View, reached her decision after multiple conversations with ABC executives about the toxicity at the root of the show,” an excerpt from the book read (via Us Weekly). “When they didn’t respond to her, she told them that she’d like to move on, according to sources with knowledge of those conversations. Abby didn’t think that anyone at ABC was looking out for her.”

Abby announced her decision to leave the show earlier this year, and this is the reason she gave at the time.
