The View Vomits Up More Lies About The GOP, Endless Garbage
The View hates former Vice President Mike Pense but that hasn't stopped them from singing his praise. The segment begins hitting Pence with a backhanded compliment from host Sonny Hostin. Hostin followed that weird moment with a handful of lies about the elections and the GOP.
First, she began by repeating Biden's talking points, claiming that the midterms were about democracy and abortions. She didn't cite a single poll but nearly all of the exit polls showed inflation and crime were top priorities for voters.
Hostin then claimed that the GOP wants to move the legal voting age up to 28 after spouting an unfounded statistic that the majority of voters in 2022 were 18-29.
The BS came as the cast was discussing former vice president Mike Pence's new book. Hostin interrupted saying that "certainly it does take courage to uphold the law, but it doesn't take a whole lot of courage to come out with your story when your book is coming out tomorrow for which you made $3 million to $4 million. So for me, he again, is not the savior of the GOP. I suppose he's going to try to run again. I know my dear friend [Alyssa Farah Griffin] here is going to disagree with me because she worked for him."
She continued, "But I think the voters made it loud and clear that the first thing that was important was that democracy was on the ballot and the second thing that was important was women's rights to health care, and that's it."
Later she went on to say that "we need to really understand that we are supposed to leave this world in a better place than we found it. When you look at the youth voter turnout in the 2022 midterms, they delivered key wins for the Democrats. Younger voters aged 18 to 29 which by the way, now the Republicans want to raise the voting to age 28. Younger voters were the only voter group by age to overwhelmingly support Democrats in the midterms. 63 percent of voters voted for Democratic House candidates."
Do you see how she set that lie up? Hostin provided an age group without backing up her claim and then said that the GOP would ban 99% of the group from voting.
