The ladies on ABC’s “The View” stunned their liberal audience Friday when they made the case for how Michael Wolff’s explosive tell-all book, “Fire and Fury,” could actually benefit President Donald Trump.
Co-host Joy-less Behar said the book is “like a late Christmas gift,” stressing that the author isn’t backing down in the face of credibility questions. She suggested Wolff did his homework, well, because he said he did.
But co-host Paula Faris noted that there are people who have gone “on record saying he invents or changes quote. He gets some things wrong. ”
She went on to suggest the book “could be arguably the best thing that’s happened for the White House.”
“For all intents and purposes, this was a Steve Bannon book,” Faris said, pointing out that Bannon, who is hated by all sides, authorized most of the interviews used for the book.
She said Bannon was a key figure in many of Trump’s controversial actions, including his remarks after the violence in Charlottesville and the Muslim travel ban.
“This is a clean divorce from a man that’s really vilified, a man that’s hated on many sides,” Faris pointed out.
“You don’t want to be associated with Steven Bannon,” she said. “And you could make a case that the White House is much better without Steve Bannon!”
Leave it to the left’s favorite Republican, noted Trump-basher Ana Navarro, to claim the book is “so credible” and justify Wolff “taking some liberties.”
