Vicious ‘View’ Cast Smears Sen. Britt: ‘Get Some Medication, Katie!’

The hypocrisy displayed by the cast of ABC’s The View is never more apparent when their “support all women” shtick clashes with their disdain for actual conservative women. That scenario played out again on Friday as they viciously attacked the mental health Alabama Senator Katie Britt (R) for her less-than-stellar and unusual rebuttal to President Biden’s State of the Union address the previous evening; suggesting that she needed to be pumped full of “medication” and thrown in a “padded room” away from “knives.”

“Get some medication, Katie!” moderator Joy Behar screeched. “I’ve never seen mood swings like this. One minute she’s like [pretends to cry], then she’s like going to take a knife and stab you! Then she’s laughing like an idiot. What’s wrong with her? She’s like Sybil!”

Faux-conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin called the rebuttal “a disaster from start to finish” and had a meltdown over Britt doing it from a kitchen:

FARAH GRIFFIN: And actually Katie Britt is somebody who’s a serious person with policy chops. Democratic senators will tell you they respect her. But it’s Women’s History Month, it’s International Women’s Day and we put the senator in the kitchen!

BEHAR: Where the knives are!

FARAH GRIFFIN: Like women can be wives, they can be moms, but they don’t — her in front of a podium. I mean, it was — I was hearing from Republican women everywhere like, what — why did they choose this? Why did she say, “put me anywhere else?”

She added that the scene gave off “creepy Lifetime movie” vibes and Behar chimed in again to proclaim that Britt “needs mood elevators!”

Co-host Ana Navarro, infamous for her wild and unhinged emotional outbursts, had the gall to say she was “worried” about Britt being in a kitchen because “she had knives so close” to her. “I thought she could go Chuckie on me at any time,” she proclaimed; being unoriginal and parroting Behar’s Sybil reference and explaining the mean-spirited joke: “Sybil the movie from ’76 about a lady with multiple personality disorder.”

“And I’m thinking to myself this lady shouldn’t be in a kitchen; she should be in a padded room!” Navarro shrieked.

Staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) suggested that Britt was a Karen who “wanted to call the manager on America.” Her criticisms seemed to stem from her well-documented hatred of white women (for examples, click here, here, here, and here). “It was giving me fragility. It was giving me those tears that are often weaponized,” she warned.

Co-host Sara Haines, who’s been very public about her battles with mental health, didn’t object to her friends weaponizing mental health smears against the conservative woman. Instead, she flipped out over Britt saying “bless your heart” to Biden.

JOY BEHAR: Get some medication, Katie! I haven’t seen acting that bad since my wedding night.

[Laughter]

So, which genius in that party decided that she was the perfect spokesperson? I’ve never seen mood swings like this. One minute she’s like [pretends to cry], then she’s like going to take a knife and stab you! Then she’s laughing like an idiot. What’s wrong with her? She’s like Sybil!

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: A disaster from start to finish. And actually Katie Britt is somebody who’s serious person with policy chops. Democratic senators will tell you they respect her. But it’s Women’s History Month, it’s International Women’s Day and we put the senator in the kitchen!

BEHAR: Where the knives are!

FARAH GRIFFIN: Like women can be wives, they can be moms, but they don’t — her in front of a podium. I mean, it was — I was hearing from Republican women everywhere like, what — why did they choose this? Why did she say, “put me anywhere else?”

SARA HAINES: What is she auditioning for though? Because I don’t think she’s going to get a callback!

SUNNY HOSTIN: No.

FARAH GRIFFIN: And I think they were thinking Ronald Reagan, like, “All great change in the America happens at the dinner table,” but instead, it gave like creepy Lifetime movie.

BEHAR: She needs – she needs – The girl needs mood elevators!

ANA NAVARRO: I don’t even know how you were able to notice she was in a kitchen because I was so incredibly distracted by what I was watching. Right? The only thing that worried me about being in a kitchen is that she had knives so close because I thought she could go Chuckie on me at any time. You know, when she started, it was giving me like a –

[Laughter]

Real housewives —

HAINES: Or Get Out.

[Crosstalk]

NAVARRO: And then it went from real Housewives confessional having a breakdown to Sybil the movie from ’76 about a lady with multiple personality disorder. And I’m thinking to myself this lady shouldn’t be in a kitchen, she should be in a padded room!

BEHAR: Go ahead. Sunny, hit it!

HOSTIN: You know, it was giving, like, she wanted to call the manager on America. You know what I mean?

BEHAR: Karen. Karen.

HOSTIN: It was giving that for me.

HAINES: You can’t say that!

BEHAR: You can’t say Karen? Why not?

HOSTIN: No, you can’t say that.

BEHAR: Why not?

HOSTIN: It was giving me fragility. It was giving me those tears that are often weaponized. It was giving me what the young people are calling “trad-wife” or the “trad-woman,” the traditional woman from the ’40s or the ’50s that was the homemaker. And I think a man made that decision. I think a Republican man realized, “You know what, the whole DeSantis like angry man thing didn’t work.”
