ABC’s long-running daytime cultural and political gabfest “The View” has finally named two new nominally conservative co-hosts to its line-up.
But perhaps not surprisingly, both are vehement critics of former President Donald Trump and, by default, his tens of millions of supporters.
According to Fox News, “Alyssa Farah Griffin, who served as White House communications director during the Trump administration, and Ana Navarro will be new co-hosts of the show.”
Last month, the outlet reported that the show had selected Griffin as the permanent ‘conservative’ on the panel to replace Meghan McCain, who announced she was leaving the show in July 2021.
Griffin “was one of several candidates who had served as a repeat guest host in a lengthy audition to become the sole ‘conservative’ voice on the liberal daytime talk show,” Fox News noted, adding:
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said they wanted to honor former host Barbara Walters’ vision for the show by representing different voices. Farah Griffin will appear daily, while Navarro will continue to host the show but not every day. ABC played a montage of Farah Griffin and Navarro’s notable appearances; both are Republicans but are sharp Donald Trump critics.
