When the co-hosts of The View discussed the Meryl Streep–Donald Trump feud, things got totally heated. Whoopi Goldberg absolutely blasted Jedediah Bila for bashing the Florence Foster Jenkins actress for getting political during her acceptance speech.
When Jedediah Bila was asked how she felt about the awards show, she took all the anchors by surprise by saying that she wanted to change the channel during Streep's speech.
"[Meryl Streep] made me turn it off if I'm being honest," Bila said. "Not because I don't respect her right to an opinion, I think she's a phenomenally talented actress. When I turn on an award show, I don't want to be lectured about politics, climate change or the NRA or a left-wing issue or a right-wing issue. I want to appreciate your talent as an actor. I want to appreciate these films and I want to leave the politics out of it."
After Bila expressed her opinion, it was evident that all of the other women strongly disagreed.
Bila continued by saying: "I hate when this happens because 9 out of 10 times the views do shift left and there are people out there who love Meryl Streep and love her acting but don't want to be made to feel like they're being marginalized for their politics in a moment that's not about politics."
Joy Behar then weighed in on the subject to criticize President-elect Donald Trump.
"He is supposed to be the president of the free world. He's not there to tit for tat over every little slight that goes through his thin skin," Behar said.
As you might imagine, social media had a wide range of reactions to the debate on The View.
Most Trump supporters like Jedediah Bila will rationalize any offense Trump commits. No sense of shame #TheView— Stephanie. (@qsteph) January 9, 2017
Whoopi tells people not to mock others, but she is constantly making fun of Jedediah. Typical liberal hypocrite. #TheView— gab.ai/FreeMedia (@FreeMediaNow) January 9, 2017
Oh Jedediah you turned it off simply because Meryl Streep spoke the TRUTH about a man-baby you voted for! Get over yourself! #TheView— Wayne Pittman, Jr. (@Sony12Play) January 9, 2017
