“The View” got a bit heated on Tuesday as the co-hosts responded to former Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC), who formally announced that she planned to seek the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
Republican co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin defended Haley — saying that she was happy to see someone ready to take on former President Donald Trump — but her co-hosts piled on almost immediately.
Whoopi Goldberg attacked first, saying, “Since you have been asleep this whole time and you just woke up, you’re just finding out that there are things about our country that are not perfect and for us to pretend that it is and that nothing happened is ridiculous, so you’re not saying anything new. And you of all people should know better because you used to actually have some sanity and knew right from wrong and then you lost your mind and went into some new direction, so don’t do that!”
Joy Behar weighed in next, calling Haley “part of the invasion of the bodysnatchers” and saying that the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations was one of “these politicians on the Right who now have become like mentally crazy.”
Behar went on to call Haley an “election denier” and criticized her for supporting Senate candidate Herschel Walker (R-GA). Griffin jumped in.
Sara Haines took issue with Haley for saying that Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Vice President Kamala Harris, and former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) were all part of the “socialist Left.”
