Hot Topic We Did It Kids!
The panel reacts to the great news. Whoopi has a mini rant about the conspiracy theories about election fraud. Joy and her family celebrated in a safe way, had T45 won, it would’ve been the end of this country. Sunny cried, loves that Kamala Harris will be the first woman and woc as Vice President, had a great moment watching Harris speech with her daughter. Sunny also calls out Stacey Abrams and other Black women who turned losses into voter turnout. Black women 91% voted for Biden, and Black men 80%. Sara got emotional and took a deep breath and felt like a huge weight had been lifted. Liked Biden speech, felt it struck a good tone. Felt that while we’re still in the midst of pandemic, we have reason to be hopeful. Ana was struck by this lightness-of-being. She had been personally attacked by T45 and his minions, and now to see Kamala win. Thanks Black women, the MVP of the election. Also thanks Latinos, Navajo nation, indigenous people. Sings, O Happy Day. Whoopi goes back to a rant, said Hillary never asked for a recount, she conceded and didn’t whine. Quotes Gore v Bush, where it was difference of only ~500 votes in one state, then he did concede. Tells Trump Cult to suck it up and deal with it.
Hot Topic Madam Vice President-elect Kamala Harris Makes History
A series of clips of all the women who ran for election, ending with Kamala and a snippet of her speech
Hot Topic Will You Shut Up, Man
Pouty McFussypants won’t concede. Plays golf, fires Secretary of Defense via twitter, otherwise has no public schedule. Rudy Colludy held a press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping (by Fantasy Island adult book store and a crematorium) with a guy claiming Philly voter fraud evidence, who is actually from NJ and a convicted ped0phile. Later, Corona McDaniel and Kaleigh Macaroni got cut off by FOX News for claiming voter fraud with no evidence. 3 GOP Senators and some GOP House have congratulated Biden-Harris (Romney, Murkowski, Collins, Hurd, etc) but most are still bleating T45 fraud claims. They will huff and puff but there’s no legal standing, it’s done. Ana thinks it’s being run by the Keystone Kops. Sunny brings up the GSA which hasn’t released $$ for transition team. None think he will go quietly but media needs to pivot and ignore him (4-5 years too later, but whatever).
Hot Topic Cindy McCain
Talks about her joy for Biden-Harris winning, the voter turnout, she likes the Covid task force that was announced (via web) last night. They talk about McCain concession speech to Obama which is what is expected of the losing candidate vs Pouty McFussypants who is having a tantrum. Concession isn’t legally required so let him seethe, who cares. Says she doesn’t feel she was the impetus, but feels how poorly T45 has handled everything is what inspired voters to choose Biden over T45. Ana asks Cindy if there is room for people like them (GOP who support Dem candidate). Cindy is on the transition team and her role is to help with inclusion from the political spectrum.
They talk about Kamala Harris being the new VP and what it means for little girls and women. Cindy says she knows Kamala and thinks she’ll do well and as a country we’re lucky to have her. They talk about the GOP Senators who stuck by T45 still winning their own re-election. Cindy says all politics are local, so it takes a different strategy to break each incumbency. AZ voters flipped one Senator (Kelly beat McSally; the other AZ Senator is already Dem). Felt that for a long time AZ has shifted particularly with younger voters. They talk about grandbaby Liberty. She hasn’t been able to hold her yet due to covid, but they facetime. Cindy thanks The View panel for being a voice for Biden campaign and helping persuade voters.
