(PresidentialHill.com)- Last Monday, “The View” got into hot water after the hosts accused the conservative group Turning Point USA of supporting Nazis.
During Monday’s show, the hateful broads kicked off the program by discussing TPUSA’s recent Student Action Summit in Orlando.
In addition to mocking the event for taking “a page from the WWE,” co-host Joy Behar brought up the cosplaying “Nazis” that gathered outside the event.
Behar blasted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for not doing anything about the idiot cosplayers, despite DeSantis attending the summit.
Later during the program, “The View” read an on-air legal disclaimer noting that Turning Point USA had condemned the cosplaying Neo-Nazis who had “nothing to do” with the event or the organization.
But Whoopi Goldberg wouldn’t let it go. She falsely claimed that Turning Point USA “let them in, and you knew what they were.”
That forced the panel to read another legal disclaimer explaining that the pretend Nazis were not let into the Turning Point event, but were outside.
Rather than leave it alone, Whoopi continued, claiming that she was trying to make a “metaphorical” point.
The following day, TPUSA’s in-house counsel Veronica Peterson sent the cease-and-desist letter to ABC News, accusing the hosts of “intentionally and falsely” associating Turning Point USA with the Nazi cosplayers outside. Peterson said the hosts placed TPUSA “in denigrating and false light and negatively impacting its public perceptions.”
In her letter, Peterson gave “The View” until July 27 to retract the comments or face legal action.
So on Wednesday, “The View” was forced to apologize on air.
Co-host Sarah Haines read a statement making it clear that the cosplaying Nazis were not part of the Student Action Summit and “were not invited or endorsed by Turning Point USA.”
Despite Haines reading the on-air apology, TPUSA also demanded Whoopi retract her defamatory remarks.
So Whoopie also had to apologize:
UPDATE: The View has issued yet another formal correction to TPUSA and its students LIVE on air. The apology was issued by Sara Haines. Whoopi remained silent and has not retracted her comments that TPUSA “metaphorically” embraced “Nazis." https://t.co/rcTawUTbpX pic.twitter.com/rANUlmXZwO
