The hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” were celebrating the indictment of former President Donald rump until they were faced with reality..
Not only is the case weak, not only did Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg not present an underlying crime, not only are there serious questions about the statute of limitations, but there is even a question of Bragg having jurisdiction to bring the case.
Which is why on Wednesday, the day after the indictment, there was not as much celebrating for the hosts..
“Yesterday, you-know-who made the trip downtown to a Manhattan courthouse to face justice,” host Whoopi Goldberg said at the start of the show.
But she was visibly disappointed when co-host Sunny Hostin had to read a legal note from the Trump team.
“I have a legal note: Trump has pleaded not guilty and denied any criminal wrongdoing and said he never had an affair with Stormy Daniels or Karen McDougal,” she said.
“I’m not saying a thing,” an annoyed Goldberg said.
