The View: Biden’s ‘Incredible’ SOTU Didn’t Trigger My ‘Depression, Anxiety’

News & Politics

President Biden’s angry, bitter, and shouty State of the Union address got rave reviews from the Cackling Coven of ABC’s The View on Friday. Co-host Sara Haines enjoyed that it didn’t trigger her “depression” and “anxiety,” while faux-conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin proclaimed it “the first time” she felt “he could beat Donald Trump.” And those were some of the more lucid takes.

Following a highlight reel that featured old man Biden shouting for no reason, moderator Joy Behar proclaimed: “So, pretty good. Right? I thought he was fabulous. I pictured Trump just going nuts watching it.”

Farah Griffin claimed it was an “Objectively good night for Joe Biden” and that it was “the first time” she “felt like he could beat Donald Trump in November.”

Ignoring Biden’s senior moments of bumbling through lines, mispronouncing names, and praising Russia’s prescription drug prices, Farah Griffin suggested: “Listen, the Trump camp did him a huge favor by setting expectations so low. They put out this ad the morning of that basically is ‘he’ll keel over and die’ so by not tipping over at the dais he was already outperforming expectations.”

Haines loved the address because it didn’t trigger her “depression [and] anxiety.” “Because for me I need hope and inspiration…I don’t need anyone else to tell me gloom and doom and we’re one step from burning from Hell because I already feel that way some days,” she explained. “So, I need a leader that will call me and say, step up, we can do this together.”

Calling the speech “incredible,” staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners“loved” that Biden brought up January 6 “at the scene of the crime” and how it made her feel like she was at her black church (Click “expand”):

I loved that he brought up January 6th, because they were at the capitol. They were at the scene of the crime. And if I were running for president I would be mentioning that scene of the crime every single day! So, he needs to continue to do that.

[Applause]

I also noticed he said” future” 20 times. This is a forward-looking president! He may be 81 but he’s looking towards the future! The other thing that I want to say is, I mean I felt like I was at my black church. There was call and response and we love that! I mean, he had audience participation with the State of the Union! That’s incredible!

Hostin lauded Biden’s attacks and threats against the Supreme Court justices in attendance. And as if it was a ‘gotcha moment,’ Hostin flaunted her profound ignorance by exclaiming: “Clarence Thomas wasn’t there” as if he was hiding from Biden. But Thomas had not attended a State of the Union address since 2006.

The other faux-conservative co-host, Ana Navarro also ignored Biden’s senior moments as she declared: “I have been saying for months and months and months that Joe Biden is old, yes, he’s slower of step, yes, but he is far from being incoherent, from having dementia, from not being in charge. Yesterday he showed he is engaged. He was impassioned.” She touted that “Scranton Joe” was “pissed off” and “had his gloves on from moment one.”

One of Biden’s worst moments of the night was when he invoked Laken Riley, the Georgia college student who was killed by an illegal immigrant who was in the country because of Biden’s open-border policies, and butchered her name by calling her “Lincoln Riley.” Navarro ignored that fact and praised him anyway. “He took [a button with her name on it] and he looked at her parents and he offered condolences,” she boasted.

Navarro also led the cast and audience in a chant of “four more years.” Just as a reminder, The View is an ABC News product.

JOY BEHAR: So, pretty good. Right? I thought he was fabulous. I pictured Trump just going nuts watching it, you know. What do you guys think?

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: Well, Trump was going nuts on Truth Social watching it. But I have to say—

BEHAR: What did he say?

FARAH GRIFFIN: And then it finally came up in all – and everything he was posting was like – well, I’m not going to even amplify it, but it was crazy.

Objectively good night for Joe Biden. This was the first time that I felt like he could beat Donald Trump in November.

Listen, the Trump camp did him a huge favor by setting expectations so low. They put out this ad the morning of that basically is ‘he’ll keel over and die’ so by not tipping over at the dais he was already outperforming expectations.

SARA HAINES: Because for me I need hope and inspiration. As someone who deals — I have to remind all the time, depression, anxiety, I don’t need anyone else to tell me gloom and doom and we’re one step from burning from Hell because I already feel that way some days. So, I need a leader that will call me and say, step up, we can do this together.

BEHAR: Like Reagan, morning in America!

HAINES: Yeah, but the thing that I loved about him was his tone. And these are the things that always speak to me. There was that time when he talked about Republicans and their infrastructure and the money and, like, if you don’t want it, you — you don’t want it? But kind of playfully when he jousted with Lindsey Graham and Lindsey Graham laughed. When he quoted a Republican president. When he said at one point Republican presidents and Democrats, he added.

Because when you can — I will trust you if you’re able to look at yourself too. I don’t believe in party, party, party all the time. So, I felt that tone was great but it was really the inspiration. He talked about America being an ideal that we’re always working toward. We haven’t arrived there but it’s also not carnage and hell. Like, we are in progress and the intention was always there but we can only do it together.

SUNNY HOSTIN: He was hopeful and I also think it was important for him to joke about his age. He also said the thing about my predecessor, my predecessor. The guy who’s like my age, so he took that — he brought that together. That was really strong. I loved that he brought up January 6th, because they were at the capitol. They were at the scene of the crime. And if I were running for president I would be mentioning that scene of the crime every single day! So, he needs to continue to do that.

[Applause]

I also noticed he said “future” 20 times. This is a forward-looking president! He may be 81 but he’s looking towards the future! The other thing that I want to say is, I mean I felt like I was at my black church. There was call and response and we love that! I mean, he had audience participation with the State of the Union! That’s incredible! And how about the fact that —

BEHAR: Well, there was some heckling as if they were at Haha’s in –

ANA NAVARRO: That’s the best thing they could do to him.

HOSTIN: The heckling just seemed to gin him up. And the last thing that I’ll say is, when you say to someone, “no disrespect, but,” you know something mad disrespectful is about to happen.

[Laughter]

So, he says – with the Supreme Court justices sitting there – ‘the Supreme Court majority wrote the following and with all due respect, justices, and women are not without electoral or political power. You’re about to realize just how much you were right about that.’ And you know how he’s got that lopsided grin and he’s like.

[Laughter]

And they literally pan over to the Supreme Court justices. Who’s not there? Alito who wrote the Dobbs decision.

BEHAR: He wasn’t there.

HOSTIN: No!

NAVARRO: He rarely shows up.

HOSTIN: Clarence Thomas wasn’t there! And —

NAVARRO: He was probably — he might have been on a yacht somewhere.

HOSTIN: Maybe. And Amy Coney Barrett wasn’t there.

BEHAR: Really?

HOSTIN: It was fascinating to me. I loved it!

NAVARRO: As you all know, I have been saying for months and months and months that Joe Biden is old, yes, he’s slower of step, yes, but he is far from being incoherent, from having dementia, from not being in charge. Yesterday he showed he is engaged. He was impassioned. He was pissed off. Scranton Joe showed up and fought. He had his gloves on from moment one. He was knowledgeable about policy.

He turned the immigration issue, which I agree with you, is the most difficult issue he’s facing and he turned it into one of the most strongest moments of that speech. They thought they were going to rattle him by wearing the buttons of Laken Riley. He took it and he looked at her parents and he offered condolences.
