On Wednesday's The View, the vile leftist coven invited former Secretary of State and failed two-time presidential candidate Hillary Clinton so she can continue her publicity tour for her pathetic Apple TV series Gutsy. After spending the first segment bashing former President Donald Trump (who Clinton famously lost to in hilarious fashion), the cackling coven fawned over Clinton, claimed President Biden has been very successful, and shrieked that Democrats need "to win for the survival of the union."
First up, faux conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin with glee in her eyes thanked Clinton and her daughter Chelsea for coming on the show, and admitted that she believes protecting American democracy is "one of the biggest issues facing our country." This is despite the fact that the United States isn't a democracy (it's a republic), nor is our system of government under any threat.
Griffin then asked if "the President met the right tone," in his demonic speech in Philadelphia where he called anyone to the right of Republican Maryland Governor Larry Hogan a "semi-fascist", or if it "was divisive and could have been framed better?"
Hillary wailed that she "thought it was a strong and necessary speech", and "would not second guess any of the language." She went on to bemoan how "fascism is a very big word." "But so is socialism, and the Republicans call every Democrat who wants people to have health care a socialist," Clinton nagged.
Then the always nasty Joy Behar jumped in to discuss the upcoming midterm elections. "We keep hearing about this red wave," Behar kvetched. "But things are turning around lately. I mean Biden has been very successful on healthcare, the climate, the gas prices went down almost overnight."
Behar then claimed "women are registering to vote in record numbers because of Roe v. Wade and other things," and admitted, "I want the Democrats to win for the survival of the union."
Chelsea Clinton butted in to lecture that she doesn't want Democrats to "feel complacent or in any way that we don't have to work as hard as possible for people to know what the stakes are in this election," and claimed, "momentum on our side and we do need to lean into people understanding the stakes and helping people get to the polls because we know when that happens, Democrats win."

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: Thank you. Madam Secretary, thank you for being here. Chelsea. So this past week as President Biden gave a speech on democracy and the threats to it, as a Republican, I have been outspoken that I think it's one of the biggest issues facing our country, but I did worry that by using the language saying many who support the former President are semi-fascist or leaning toward it was divisive. I know you experienced this when you used the term deplorables, quite a bit of backlash from the right. Do you think the President met the right tone or do you think this was divisive and could have been framed better?
HILLARY CLINTON: You know, I think he did a very important service to the country in giving the speech that he gave because too many people are not yet aware of how fragile our democracy is, and I'm not going to second guess the language he used because there has been so much that has gone beyond anything I ever would have dreamed of, starting with January 6, but so many threats of violence and, you know, concerns that people are expressing about the country, you know, coming apart and all of that.
So I think he did a real service, and I personally thought it was a strong and necessary speech, and I would not second guess any of the language. The final thing I would say is, you know, look. Fascism is a very big word. I know that, but so is socialism, and the Republicans call every Democrat who wants people to have health care a socialist. So I think we need to be careful with our language, but I think the problem is if you go through the hallmarks of authoritarian regimes, you see too many characteristics unfortunately on our Republican side, and my most fervent hope is that Republicans themselves will begin to reject all of that verbally, vocally, in their voting, and, you know, kind of reconstitute the Republican Party to where it used to be, and not the, you know, party of Trump which I think is very dangerous to the country.
JOY BEHAR: Party of Eisenhower.
BEHAR: So we are only -- we are less than 65 days away from the midterm elections.
CLINTON: Right, right.
BEHAR: And you know, we keep hearing about this red wave, this red wave, but things are turning around lately. I mean Biden has been very successful on healthcare, the climate, the gas prices went down almost overnight. Women are registering to vote in record numbers because of Roe v. Wade and other things. Should we be feeling better? Should the Democrats -- I'm a Democrat. I want the Democrats to win for the survival of the union, frankly.
CLINTON: No, I agree with that.
BEHAR: Do you think we will?
CHELSEA CLINTON: Joy, can I just say as a woman of a slightly different generation than my mom, you know, it's not only women who are registering to vote in record numbers. It's young women who are registering to vote, women my age and younger.
CLINTON: Who are not only registering to vote in record numbers, but showing up to vote in record numbers and we saw that certainly in Kansas decisively, and we saw it in the special election here in New York and Alaska. And so I certainly don't want us to feel complacent or in any way that we don't have to work as hard as possible for people to know what the stakes are in this election, you know, as a woman for a democracy for any issue we all care about. I also think that we have to recognize we do have momentum on our side and we do need to lean into people understanding the stakes and helping people get to the polls because we know when that happens, Democrats win.
