With the Department of Energy and the FBI now admitting that evidence was pointing to the virology lab in Wuhan, China as the origin point for COVID-19, the cast of ABC’s The View was finally ready to start accepting that idea as the best obtainable version of the truth. But to combat the fact many conservatives and Republicans had been focused on the lab for years, the cast found fault in former President Trump; blaming him for liberal hostility to the lab leak theory.

The show opened with a clip of comedian Jon Stewart blasting the left for calling him racist and alt-right because he made the obvious connection between the virus and the lab, but Whoopi Goldberg still wouldn’t let it be. “No, he's right that politics got in the way of a lot of looking for the truth. But they still are not saying definitively and that's a problem. They still don't know for sure,” she tried to dismiss the theory.

She then bashed Stewart for spreading the lab theory out of ignorance of what it was doing to Asian Americans and suggested, without evidence, that Trump attributed the origin of the virus all Asian people.
