'The View' explodes after Ted Cruz calls out past Democrats on questioning election results

Cruz asked the hosts, 'So it's illegitimate when Republicans win, but not when Democrats win?'

"The View" panel erupted on Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, on Monday after he confronted the hosts about election deniers and political violence on the left.

The Republican was initially heckled by environmental protesters within the audience before co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin grilled him about the January 6 Capitol Hill riot and whether he viewed President Biden as legitimately elected. Cruz confirmed that Biden was the president before calling out "The View" and the media for giving Democrats a pass for floating "stolen election" claims.

"There are a lot of folks in the media that try to, any time a Republican is in front of a TV camera try to say, ‘the election was fair and square and legitimate.’ You know who y'all don't do that to? You don't do it to Hillary Clinton who stood up and said, ‘Trump stole the election.’ You don't do it to Stacey Abrams who said the election was 'stolen.’ They sat here and said it was illegitimate and you guys were fine with it!" he said.

Before Cruz could finish speaking, the hosts tried to talk over him.

Whoopi Goldberg said, "That's right! It was!" after Cruz cited Clinton and Abrams' statements about stolen races.

Cruz confronted Goldberg on her apparent hypocritical stance. "Oh, so it's illegitimate when Republicans win, but not when Democrats win?" he asked before she cut in again.

Goldberg argued it was different for Democrats because they "don't storm," referring to the January 6 Capitol riot.

"We don't do that," she insisted.

Again, Cruz sought to flip the host's accusations.

"Whoopi, did I miss an entire year of Antifa riots where cities across this country were burning and police cars were being fired upon?" he asked.

As he was speaking Goldberg denied knowing what the senator was referring to, saying "I don't know what an Antifa riot is."

"Your position is the left doesn't engage in violence, really?" he scoffed.

The discussion continued to spiral out of control, with the hosts defending Clinton and Abrams, while Cruz quoted Clinton questioning the legitimacy of both the 2000 and 2016 election results.

During a speech in 2019, Hillary Clinton claimed the 2016 election had been "stolen" from her. Stacey Abrams never conceded her 2018 gubernatorial race against Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, at various points saying "we won."

Last month while on "The View," one co-host even praised Abrams for not accepting the election results.

Sunny Hostin told the Democrat, who is running against Kemp once more in November for governor of Georgia, "When you lost in 2018, you didn’t traditionally concede, which I appreciated because you cited voter suppression."

Last December, the hosts also touted Clinton winning the popular vote in 2016. "She won, yeah," Hostin and Joy Behar agreed.

I admire Cruz for wanting to put up with the fetid air in that stink hall filled by batshit crazy leftist lunatics.

That ain't something I'd do, but then again I'm not a senator and I'm not a Republican.  :stoner:

Guess he's hawking a new book, and at least that morning post-menopausal harpie show invited him. I can recall in 2015 and 2016 that the late night clowns at least invited Republicans on their shows. Cruz, Carson, Huckabee, Rubio, and others were welcome.  Then Jimmy Fallon tossled with future President Trump's hair and "normalized him". :stoner:

As part of his MAGA plan, the one result that he didn't make great again was late night comedy. Other than Gutfeld of course, and Greg was not even originally much of Trump fan. The Jimmies and COAL-BERT went way way way left after Trump beat Cankles like a rented mule on November 8th, 2016.
