‘Prove a Point’: The View Wants Trump in Gitmo for Violating Gag Order

News & Politics

No one has ever accused the liberal ladies of ABC’s The View of having rational, measured responses to political happenings. Last year, they decried the legal notion that former President Trump was entitled to a fair trial; then on Tuesday, they wanted him sent to “Guantanamo Bay” with the terrorists because he violated the gag order for his hush money trial and was held in contempt of court.

Moderator Whoopi Goldberg had a bit of a breakdown after playing a soundbite of Trump outside the New York City courthouse condemning the gag order as a violation of his constitutional right to free speech. “When did you read the Constitution?” she screeched.

“You know, you could’ve had – you had four years to read the Constitution and figure it out,” she added before her words broke down into indiscernible animal noises: “But I – He just read it now. He just read it. It’s a ba gah [gags and hisses].”

Feigning high-mindedness, staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) bloviated that she was “conflicted over whether or not he should be held in contempt and … put in jail for it.”

Hostin came down on the side “put him in the clink” in order to “prove a point” about how it’s the judge who controls the trial and not Trump:

HOSTIN: The other thing I will say. We all saw, many of us are old enough to have seen the O.J. case. Remember how Judge Ito lost complete control of the courtroom. And I think that had a lot to do with the win. You cannot let Donald Trump be a runaway train in that courtroom.

GOLDBERG: No. No.

HOSTIN: It’s not his courtroom. It’s the judge’s courtroom. And so, I think to make a point, to prove a point, put him in the clink! Why not? Put him in the clink!

This turn in the conversation got Goldberg so excited she started doing a little peepee dance.

“But which prison would be best?” Goldberg wanted to know. “Rikers” Island was “number one” for both Goldberg and Hostin (the latter was so excited they were on the same page that she did her own unhinged convulsions). Goldberg then floated some other prisons including reopening Alcatraz and the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay:

GOLDBERG: But you know, I’m okay if he goes to Alcatraz and they re-open it.

HOSTIN: Maybe.

GOLDBERG: You know? What about Guantanamo Bay? Okay. (…) That’s right! What about Supermax? Supermax would be interesting. El Chapo was in Supermax, you know, hey now, he wants to be with the hip people, come on.

Faux-conservative Ana Navarro loved the idea of sending Trump to Gitmo because it “would be close to Mar-a-Lago. Melania can come and visit.” She followed that up with mocking laughter.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: When did you read the constitution?

[Laughter]

You know, you could’ve had – you had four years to read the Constitution and figure it out.

[Applause]

But I – He just read it now. He just read it. It’s a ba gah [gags and hisses] –

SUNNY HOSTIN: Even if he read it, it didn’t matter to him. Right, Whoopi?

I’m sort of conflicted over whether or not he should be held in contempt and put in pri — he’s already been held in contempt but put in jail for it. But I do think that 71 percent of Americans have said that he should be put in jail if he is convicted.

The other thing I will say. We all saw, many of us are old enough to have seen the O.J. case. Remember how Judge Ito lost complete control of the courtroom. And I think that had a lot to do with the win. You cannot let Donald Trump be a runaway train in that courtroom.

GOLDBERG: No. No.

HOSTIN: It’s not his courtroom. It’s the judge’s courtroom. And so, I think to make a point, to prove a point, put him in the clink! Why not? Put him in the clink!

[Applause]

GOLDBERG: Ooh, ooh, oh! If – I don’t want this to sound like I’m doing wishful thinking.

HOSTIN: Yes.

GOLDBERG: But which prison would be best?

[Laughter]

HOSTIN: I know which one.

GOLDBERG: I’m going to give you—

HOSTIN: Rikers.

GOLDBERG: Well, that’s what I – That’s number one; is Rikers! But you know, I’m okay if he goes to Alcatraz and they re-open it.

HOSTIN: Maybe.

GOLDBERG: You know? What about Guantanamo Bay? Okay.

ANA NAVARRO: Oh, that would be close to Mar-a-Lago. Melania can come and visit. [Mocking laughter]

GOLDBERG: That’s right! What about Supermax? Supermax would be interesting. El Chapo was in Supermax, you know, hey now, he wants to be with the hip people, come on. So, these are my suggestions in case anybody wants to know.
