Since even before the president ascended to the White House, the hosts of ABC’s infamous daytime talk show The View have taken aim at Donald Trump. But if that isn’t your preferred style of daytime television, the Trump campaign is now offering up a replacement.
According to the Washington Examiner, Trump’s re-election campaign began streaming episodes of a new program called The Right View with hosts including Lara Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle this week. Trump campaign senior advisers Mercedes Schlapp and Katrina Pierson also star in the show, which will air at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesdays, the Examiner reported.
“Make talk shows great again”
The show’s hosts say the weekly program seeks to provide an alternative for women who don’t feel their views are represented on ABC’s daily talk show, which features commentators like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
“For too long, women on ABC’s The View have believed they represent all women’s views,” Schlapp said in a recent interview with Just The News, as the Examiner reported.
The Trump campaign senior communications adviser also alleged that The View‘s co-hosts “project the fake news’ narrative to viewers across the country and are obsessed with their blatant hatred of President Trump.”
She went on: “Our new series — The Right View — will make talk shows great again by breaking through the mainstream media’s deception and providing the facts about President Trump’s clear record of accomplishment.”

A refreshing perspective
The first episode with Schlapp and her co-stars, including the president’s daughter-in-law Lara and Guilfoyle, first son Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, can be viewed on the Trump campaign’s official YouTube channel. The program primarily focused on presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, but also touched on the history of hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that some studies suggest may be effective in treating the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19.
“Many people, including children, have also taken this drug, and it’s been out there for decades,” Pierson remarked early in the broadcast. “If you have rheumatoid arthritis, if you have Sjogren’s syndrome, any type of autoimmune disease, likely this is the drug that you will be taking.”
At the beginning of this week, President Trump announced that he has been taking a combination of hydroxychloroquine and zinc as a preventative measure after several members of the White House staff tested positive for COVID-19, as Fox News reported.
Nationwide, more than 1.5 million cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed, according to a tracker from Johns Hopkins University. More than 95,000 Americans have died from the disease.
