The View, the longtime liberal gabfest just turned on two Democratic frontrunners. Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker and Beto were mercilessly mocked for pandering by speaking Spanish.
Can you imagine one of those two clowns trying that stunt onstage with Trump? Trump would destroy them.
Look, last night was embarrassing for the Democrats for many reasons. They will need to do much better to have shot at Trump in 2020.
The View hosts weighed in on the first part of the 2020 Democratic presidential debates, roasting Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Cory Booker, and Julián Castro for their attempts to speak in Spanish during the
“The debates seemed to quickly go viral. Folks start speaking Spanish. Señor Beto O’Rourke was working it,” Whoopi Goldberg joked.
“I thought Trump was going to deport him,” Joy Behar joked after they played a clip of the Texas congressman speaking Spanish. “Wow, you’re going south.”
“To me it was a little bit pandering, off the top,” Behar added, to which Meghan McCain agreed.
Sunny Hostin said that Beto is fluent in Spanish but said “his accent isn’t great.” Behar added that it was a “high school” accent.
Hostin started laughing at Castro, who is Hispanic, after she said he was not fluent in Spanish.
The hosts then made fun of Booker who glared at O’Rourke when the former Texas congressman started speaking Spanish.
“It’s kind of, ‘What the hell,'” Goldberg said of Booker’s glare.
“I think Cory was like, ‘You took my moment, man. I was about to break out my Spanish,” Hostin said.
“That’s exactly what happened,” McCain agreed.
The Spanish by the three candidates come as the trio struggle to poll about the low single digits or in the case of Castro, less than 1% according to RealClearPolitics. The second part of the first Democratic presidential debate is Thursday night on MSNBC.
