The View: Bernie Sanders, Rick Ross, Hot Topics

Today’s panel is Whoopi, Abby, Joy, Sunny, and Meghan

Bernie Sanders

Summary of convo [Spoiler (click to open)]
Whoopi calls him “B”. Wants to know how this day is different from the last time. B says last time was one candidate, this time is many candidates. Talks ideas he mentioned last time are part of dialogue this time. Talks uber wealthy in comparison to most Americans, who live paycheck to paycheck. Joy wonders why people aren’t voting in droves, doesn’t understand low turnout. Sunny feels people don't think that their vote counts. Sunny thinks B was a vanguard in ideas. Sunny brings up Warren, who shares the same ideas plus she’s his friend. Is there room for both of you, which may split vote, giving Biden a clear path. B says tv ads don’t win campaigns, touts grassroots support.

Whoopi brings up Yang, and mentions his universal income. B talks tax breaks to 1% is obscene and that he’d change that. Whoopi says that he hasn’t changed it so far (in Senate). B talks corporations and their tax exempt status. B talks giving every American a job, sidesteps giving every American universal income. Whoopi says B agenda is the same as basically everybody else’s agenda. Joy brings up Pelosi, that a moderate will be needed to beat Tr/mp. B says he likes Pelosi but he disagrees. Meghan asks about bipartisanship, wants B to name people he will work with. B names people. Meghan says Isakson (R-GA) is retiring, McCain is now gone (dead), name someone still in office (ok, lol). B mentions Lamar Alexander (R-TN) then diverts to how bad Tr/mp is.

Abby brings up Biden leading the polls, had a rough month with gaffes, are media too rough on him. B says media has job to do but says he’s friends with Joe, has differences, points out things Joe voted for that he didn’t vote for. Abby wants to know if B would criticize Tr/mp for telling the same stories. B says they’re not the same, Tr/mp is a liar but he doesn’t feel Joe is like that. Meghan brings up Tr/mp claim that DNC screwed over B for Hillary, will do the same for Joe, so will B have a contested convention. B talks superdelegates, says he’s feeling good about his own campaign. [Does not answer question about contested convention]. Meghan brings up Gabbard who was excluded from next debate [because of hinky polls criteria]. B says he’s friends with Gabbard, talks about debates need to have rules and how productive is it with 20 people, wants to talk issues vs time limits. Sunny brings up Walmart gun policy change vs TX loosened laws. B says his admin won’t be intimidated by the NRA, talks recent shootings.
