The View Talks Stormy Daniels

Hot Topics On The View: Was Stormy Daniels physically threatened?

"The reason that Fire and Fury sold over two million copies is because [Trump] tried to stop it," Ana Navarro weighs in on the porn actress' lawyer's comment that she was threatened with physical harm. 

"The best thing that could happen to somebody is for him to try to stop something — it gives it much more oxygen!"

"Stormy," Sunny Hostin says of whether Trump should be more worried about Stormy or the Russia probe. "I think it makes the [Steele] dossier allegations more plausible... he's gotta be very scared of that!"

"His base does not care," Navarro says of the Daniels scandal. "The Republican congress says it's not on their radar! ... They don't care about Donald Trump's morals."

Hot Topics: Larry Kudlow named Trump's next chief economic adviser.

Joy Behar says: "He just picks people from TV! Everyone at this table is qualified at the Trump administration!"

"It comes from the top," Sunny Hostin says. "[Trump] didn't have experience for this particular position, and so he doesn't think anyone has to have experience or training or education for the role they're playing."

“I can say thank you for that,” Whoopi Goldberg says of Kudlow's economic experience. “Now we can at least argue about economics with someone who can actually explain what they're doing, or you can question them and they won't look at you like they don’t know.”

Hot Topics: Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to be fired?


Hot Topics: What's behind craze over the royal wedding?

"Well, that's never going to happen to you because they don't marry folks like you," Goldberg remembers people telling her as a child. She shares why she's "really happy" about the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: "The little kid in me says, 'You know what, even you could be a princess!'"

The View welcomes back co-host Sara Haines from maternity leave.

She shares how life is at home with baby number two, Sandra Grace — and how her 2-year-old son Alec is adjusting to being a big brother.

Hot Topics: Betsy DeVos struggles in interview on education

"It hurts me to my core," Sunny Hostin says, remembering how education gave her opportunity growing up in the South Bronx. "Kids like me don't have a chance with Betsy DeVos as the person taking care of their education."

Hot Topics: Trump insults Chuck Todd, Maxine Waters, Oprah at rally

"The president said that he would be boring if he didn't talk this way," Joy Behar weighs in. "What's 'boring' is the Constitution, foreign policy, understanding the economy ... it wouldn't hurt to be a little more boring!"

Hot Topics: Oakland coffee shop won't serve police

"It just doesn't help," Whoopi Goldberg reacts. "It divides and it also makes [the police] not feel good about protecting the neighborhood — so maybe the idea is to do a little town hall at the coffee shop and have a conversation."

"It's really about relationship building." Hostin says. "If you're a new coffee shop and you have police officers coming in and trying to bridge the gap — to kick them out, it's just the not the way to go about it."

ABC'S THE VIEW -- Rep. Schiff calls on his colleagues in the Intelligence Committee to "compel" witnesses who have refused to answer questions about their time on the Trump team — including Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski: "They need to be subpoenaed."

Guest co-host Condoleezza Rice tells Rep. Schiff: "If the Russians did it to us the first time, shame on them. If they do it to us again, shame on us."

Rep. Schiff says "not nearly enough" is being done to combat Russian attempts to interfere in future American elections: "We need to send a clear message to Russia that any further meddling won't be tolerated — they'll pay a heavy price for it."

"I appreciate what you're doing for the country — but I really hope you can wrap it up," Rice tells Rep. Schiff her hopes for the Russia probe: "The country needs to get back to business, so... my greatest hope is that this gets done."

"Bob Mueller will make the decision whether there's proof beyond reasonable doubt to indict and convict people," Schiff said. "It is not his responsibility to tell the country what happened... indeed, no guarantee that the country will ever learn what Bob Mueller finds apart from an indictment."

Mo'Nique On The View

Mo'Nique explains why she called for a Netflix boycott over what she says was "gender bias and color bias": "When [Netflix] says ... 'Mo'Nique is a legend, too.' Well if I'm a legend, why wouldn't I get what the legends are getting?"

Mo'Nique tells her side of the story that damaged her reputation: "For 8 years, my family has suffered, and my career has suffered, because ... I would not allow those entities to ... bully me."

The View Talks Gun Violence

Hot Topics: Youth across the country mobilize for gun control

"It's their lives at risk!" Sunny Hostin says. "They're growing up in this mass shooting age ... why can't the grown ups do something about this?"

"Young people taking to the streets changes things," Goldberg says. "People can make change happen — and it's a good thing to have folks do it!"

"The people who are ... at risk are the ones who take to the streets," Joy Behar says, recalling protests against the war in Vietnam: "There was an actual threat, and I think that's what these kids are responding to..."

Sen. Paul says he's "absolutely" in favor of releasing the controversial GOP memo: "We need more sunshine and we need more oversight."

Sen. Paul on partisanship of intelligence agencies: "I think maybe the FBI should do their job, but maybe be a little quieter during election season so they don't influence elections one way or the other."

Jorge Garcia's Family On "The View"

Jorge Garcia, the undocumented father of two deported to Mexico this week, speaks out along with his family.

On why Jorge was deported

"The system failed us." Jorge's wife, Cindy Garcia said. "It's a broken immigration system and it needs to be fixed."

On their family's dread knowing Jorge's deportation date was coming.

"We didn't want to let him go." Jorge's wife and children emotionally share their experience: "It was devastating, because we knew our nightmare was coming to life... We were grieving. It was a death."

Jorge's message to Pres. Trump

"We're supposed to only deport people that are criminals. That's not what's going on. They're only basically hurting the economy and separating families just like mine."

On losing the family's primary source of income

"God is gonna pull me through this." Cindy discussed how she will support her family after her husband Jorge, who has been the family's primary source of income, was been deported to Mexico. "[God has] given me the power to speak up for everybody."

Additional Highlights From The Show

Hot Topics: Porn star Stormy Daniels gives interview on alleged Trump affair.

"We're at a point now where he's done so much stuff, it's hard to even pinpoint the most shocking thing he's done — I wasn't surprised by this at all," guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown said.

"I don't know if the evangelicals will care about it because they don't care about what he does," Joy Behar said. "It goes against their religion, they don't care — as long as he gets whatever they want."

Hot Topics: The co-hosts reflect on the Garcia family's story

"We were all immigrants at one point in time and throwing people out who have become Americans, who are not a threat to society, no criminal record ... it goes against ... the values that our country is based on," Meghan McCain said.

"The party of family values needs to step in and keep this family and others like it together and stop preaching lies about family values!" Behar said.

"We are better as a country [because of] our diversity," Sunny Hostin said. "But we know that. The man that is in power now does not know that ... even though he wants his wives to be imported in..." Yvette Nicole Brown added.

Rep. John Lewis On The View

The View honors Martin Luther King Jr. with Rep. John Lewis, Common, and Charlottesville's first black female mayor.

Singer-songwriter Jordin Sparks joins as guest co-host.

Rep. John Lewis talks skipping Trump's inauguration, Charlottesville, experience in civil rights movement.

On Charlottesville: "What happened there made me very sad — I cried. I don't wanna go back. I wanna go forward. I want to continue to be part of an effort to make America one."
"We all live in the same house! The American house, the world house. And we must learn to live together as brothers and sisters, as Dr. King would put it, or we will perish as fools."

 Lewis explains why he skipped inauguration: "I never felt that his election was legitimate."

Lewis says he disagreed with King's daughter's comment that MLK would have met with Trump: "I knew her father very, very well. Meeting him, working with him, and getting to know him — I think he would have taken the same position that I did."

Lewis says that Trump wouldn't have been elected had King been alive: "Dr. King would have been able to lead us to a different place and our country would have been different and the world community would have been different."

On his experience protesting: "We studied, we prepared ourselves," Lewis said. "So [if] someone spit on you, poured hot water, hot coffee, hot chocolate, call you everything but a child of God, just keep your cool and you hold your head high, you stand with dignity or you kneel with dignity and pride."

"You cannot become angry — you cannot become bitter or hostile," Lewis said. "Dr. King told us never to hate. Hate is too heavy a burden to bear."

Sen. Lindsey Graham

Sen. Lindsey Graham discusses fallout from Fire and Fury, Russia probe, Trump's mental fitness, DACA, North Korea and more.

On Trump's mental fitness

Graham reacted to Pres. Trump calling himself a "a very stable genius": "If he doesn't call himself a genius, nobody else will."


On investigation into Trump campaign's involvement with Russia

"I think Mr. Mueller should be able to do his job without being interfered with." Graham said. "There's no evidence of colluding yet — but I think Mueller should look." "Let Mr. Mueller do his job, and Mr. Trump, our president, should focus on his day job," Graham added.

On backing Mueller

"An attack on one party is an attack on all," Graham explained why people on both sides of the aisle should support Mueller's investigations: "In a democracy, if you don't have each other's backs in stuff like this, then you lose control of democracy."

On watching Meghan McCain grow up

Graham said McCain advised her father not to go after Barack Obama over Rev. Jeremiah Wright: "Meghan said, 'Dad, don't do it. It's not right.' And all the smart people shut up."
"She was brave enough to say something."

Lindsay Graham On The View

Hot Topics: Oprah's stirring Golden Globes speech

Reports say the media mogul is thinking of running for office — Sunny Hostin said while she strongly admires and praises her work, she has some reservations: “Don't we already have someone in the White House who has no political experience — and it's not going that well." "I don't think you can just step into this role even if you're as beloved as Oprah."

Sherri Shepherd

NEW YORK — Actress and Emmy-Award winning former co-host of ABC’s “The View” Sherri Shepherd has joined Aldis Hodge (Underground) and Greg Kinnear to co-star in biopic Brian Banks, directed by Tom Shadyac (Liar Liar, The Nutty Professor, Evan Almighty) for producers Shivani Rawat’s ShivHans Pictures and Amy Baer’s Gidden Media. The biopic tells the story of Banks (Hodge), an All-American high school football player committed to USC by his junior year whose life was upended in 2002 when he was falsely accused of rape. Despite maintaining his innocence, Banks was railroaded through the system and sentenced to a decade of prison and parole.

With the help of the California Innocence Project, spearheaded by Justin Brooks (Kinnear), the criminal defense attorney and CIP co-founder, Banks’ conviction was overturned in 2012. He briefly played with the Atlanta Falcons in the 2013 preseason. Shepherd will portray Banks’ mother, Leomia, who was the glue that kept Banks together during his trial.

The script was written by Doug Atchison who wrote and directed the critically acclaimed Akeelah and the Bee.

The production takes place in Memphis, where Shadyac lives. He will bring in local film students to shadow and learn while he shoots the film.

The project was originally developed through Baer’s development fund Gidden Media. She will produce alongside Shivani Rawat and Monica Levinson (ShivHans Pictures) who also financed. Banks, Brooks, Derrick Tseng and Neil Strum are executive producers.

Shepherd’s film credits include co-starring with Katherine Heigl in "One for the Money" and with Chris Rock in "Top Five." Additionally, she has co-starred in such movies as the award-winning "Precious," "Woodlawn," "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," "Guess Who," "Who's Your Caddy," "Beauty Shop" and "Ride Along 2," starring Kevin Hart.

Shepherd will begin shooting the second season of NBC sitcom “Trial and Error,” starring John Lithgow in March 2018 where she will reprise her co-starring role as legal secretary “Anne Hatch.”

Shepherd is represented by 3 Arts Entertainment.

Tweeden read the note: "It says, ‘Dear Leeann, I want to apologize to you personally. I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture. But that doesn't matter. There's no excuse. I understand why you can feel violated by that photo. I remember that rehearsal differently. But what's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions, and for that I apologize. I have tremendous respect for your work for the USO. And I am ashamed that my actions ruined that experience for you. I am so sorry. Sincerely, Al Franken.'"

According to Tweeden, Franken also asked to meet with her personally.

Hot Topics: Re-examining Accusations Against Bill Clinton.

"This bothered me because I think kids get it right and adults get it wrong — this is not something people are born feeling," Sara Haines says.

"They're not looking at color," Whoopi Goldberg says of children.

Meghan McCain explains how she has an adopted sister of color, saying if her parents had ever implied that she would have a different relationship with her sister because of the color of their skin it would have been "so absurd, gross, and deeply irresponsible": "When people are writing things like this, you have to understand that being friends also can mean being family."
