'The View' Co-Hosts Make Shocking Admission About Supreme Court Ruling

On Monday, "The View" co-hosts acknowledged the Supreme Court's unanimous decision to keep former President Trump on the Colorado ballot as correct.

Sunny Hostin labeled it the "right decision" but critiqued the justices for seeming partisan. She highlighted opinions by Justices Sotomayor, Kagan, Jackson, and Barrett, indicating the court overreached by addressing issues not directly before them.

"They are saying the Supreme Court went too far here because they answered a question that wasn’t before them. The only question that was before this court was, can a state do this? Instead, what they did was they insulated all alleged insurrectionists from future challenges to their holding federal office," Hostin said. "I have far too much hope that the court would be united in this and not overstep in favor of Donald Trump, and I think what we saw was a court where justices that behaved in a partisan manner and that disappointed me." 

Hostin expressed disappointment in the court's approach, suggesting it protected alleged insurrectionists from future disqualifications from holding federal office. She had hoped for a unified court stance without perceived favoritism toward Trump.

Sara Haines appreciated Barrett's alignment with Kagan, Jackson, and Sotomayor, viewing it as a sign of overcoming partisanship. Haines stressed the importance of respecting the judicial process, even when disagreeing with its outcomes.

"It didn’t surprise me. I started to gain faith as Sunny would tell us, like, this is going to get him," Haines said. "But seeing it, I now get the chaos which would ensue and I think it’s important when you don’t like the outcome, which I’m not saying I don’t, but that you look at the states that you would disagree with, and what they could do in turn."

Ana Navarro concurred with the court's decision, emphasizing voter decision-making over judicial rulings. She criticized the notion of a few states potentially dictating election outcomes and suggested Justice Thomas should recuse himself in related cases.

"I agree with this. I think it needs to be up to the voters. I think it was opening up a Pandora’s box, and one of the things that John Roberts said earlier was, you know, how do we know that then elections don’t end up being decided by just a few states?" she said, before arguing that Justice Clarence Thomas shouldn't be allowed to rule on cases involving Trump.

Whoopi Goldberg reluctantly agreed with the ruling but expressed frustration over Trump's "normalization" and his controversial behaviors becoming accepted.

Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump aide turned critic, also agreed with the decision, though with reservations about its implications.

The Supreme Court's ruling, favoring Trump unanimously, impacts similar efforts in various states to exclude him from ballots. The ruling interpreted the 14th Amendment's Article 3, stating states cannot disqualify individuals from federal positions, including the presidency, based on alleged insurrection involvement.
