The hosts of “The View” had no kind words for Dana Loesch on Wednesday morning, after Loesch said this week that “skanks” get abortions. The women went off on the conservative host, asking “What the hell was that?” and saying she “exposes the moral rot” of the party.
Loesch made her comments on “The First” on Tuesday, saying that “If ‘The Daily Beast’s story is true, you’re telling me Walker used his money to reportedly pay some skank for an abortion, and Warnock wants to use all of our moneys to pay an all bunch of skanks for abortion.” She added that, even if the report is true, she doesn’t care. “I don’t care if Herschel Walker paid to abort endangered baby eagles. I want control of the Senate,” she said.
In response, the women of “The View” were heated, with Whoopi Goldberg needing to bite her tongue a bit.
“First of all, ma’am, there’s a lot of women who find themselves in the position of having to have an abortion. How dare you call them skanks, first of all,” Whoopi said. “And I believe the whole point is that Walker is saying ‘I believe that this is murder, I believe that — ‘ and has paid, supposedly, for women to have abortions. That’s the point. If we’re gonna have these discussions, please stick to them, and not go off calling people names.”
Whoopi added that she had plenty of names she’d like to call Loesch herself, but actively stopped herself because “it’s not the right thing to do.”
Newcomer host Alyssa Farah Griffin added that Loesch’s words were entirely indefensible, and shows how far the Republican Party has fallen under Trump.
“It just exposes the moral rot that’s taking over my party,” Farah Griffin said. “Like, listening to that, I can’t defend that for a second. And, as a pro-life woman, to hear someone else like Dana, who is pro-life, call women who get into situations where they need abortions skanks is just shameful and I will not defend that.”
Meanwhile, host Ana Navarro questioned Loesch’s logic at large.
“I hate it when women attack other women,” Navarro said. “So if she’s calling the woman who got an abortion, the women he sleeps with — which are many — if they are skanks, then what are you suggesting ma’am? That we send the man who sleeps with skanks to the U.S. Senate? Because his judgment is oh so good? Are we letting him off scot-free?”
