Watch: The Women of 'The View' Just Turned on Spoiled Elizabeth Warren

Ah, “The View.” Bastion of liberalism. Bosom of the left. Mouthpiece of … reason?

Yes, on the selfsame week that they actually made Beto O’Rourke look foolish, “The View” hosts took Sen. Elizabeth Warren to task for turning down an appearance on a Fox News town hall.

The Massachusetts Democrat was invited on the same network where fellow 2020 presidential candidate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, actually did pretty swift business — with a simpatico crowd, no less.

Instead, Warren turned it down and called the network a “hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists” in a series of tweets.

“Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money — big ad money.” Warren wrote on Twitter.

“But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox—no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not),” she said.

In a related story, a quick search of Fox News’ television listings by our researchers could find no mention of a show hosted by Louis Farrakhan.

They could, however, find several members of Warren’s party willing to defend him. But I digress.

Do you think Elizabeth Warren should do a Fox News town hall?

Rep. John Delaney of Maryland — who’s actually running for the nomination along with Warren, but is one of the lesser known candidates in a field that includes Andrew Yang, John Hickenlooper, Judge Crater, Steve Bullock, Roger Ebert and John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt (some of whom aren’t running and/or are dead, but you wouldn’t notice) — said that he would take her place for the town hall, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

The women of “The View” first tried to figure out who Delaney was, and then found he was actually more sensible than Warren, at least in this one respect.

“It may be a minority opinion, but I think that it’s being very dismissive of so many Americans for her not to go on Fox News,” co-host Sunny Hostin said of Warren, noting the network’s strong ratings.

“I think if you want to be the president of the United States, for everyone, then you need to speak to everyone.”

Meanwhile, Meghan McCain said that the move was “shortsighted on [Warren’s] part.”

“If you can even change one mind in a Republican household, that to me would be worth it for Elizabeth Warren,” McCain said. “You’ve got to go to spaces that are uncomfortable.”

Whoopi Goldberg agreed.

“If you can’t face the Fox audience, you can’t face the U.S.,” she said. “It’s that simple.”

Well, we could have told you this, but we’d rather leave it to Goldberg and company.

In the meantime, Warren will continue to rant about Fox and their “hate” machine. That’ll play great in the primaries. Good luck in the general.
