Let The View And Antifa Both Have Their Say

While scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, from time to time I come across posts asking if The View should be canceled. No doubt, the talk show format consists of a heavy amount of Trump-slamming. The hosts take every opportunity granted to them to ridicule and condemn President Donald Trump. When strong conservative women like Ann Coulter make an appearance presenting legitimate facts, the panel not only dismisses her viewpoints but also tries to shame her with short rants by washed up comedian Whoopi Goldberg followed by thunderous applause from the left-leaning audience.

Short and accessible, polemical and jargon-free, speedily produced and mass-marketed, these pamphlets examine any number of policy issues from immigration and climate change to gun control and Obamacare.
