With the midterms fast approaching, the Monday edition of ABC’s The View looked to seize on apparent bickering within the Republican Party to try and drive a wedge, with co-host Whoopi Goldberg pushing for the party to split, forming a third party, and cementing Democratic Party supremacy. Surprisingly, there was some pushback from unlikely members of the panel but one of the so-called “Republican” co-hosts admitted she’s willing to swing for Democrats.
This conversation was spurred on by comments from Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) over the weekend where she declared: “I'm going to make sure Donald Trump – I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he's not the nominee, and if he is the nominee, I won't be a Republican.”
After the wildly liberal and masked studio audience was done cheering, Goldberg pressed the two “Republican” co-hosts Ana Navarro and Alyssa Farah Griffin on the idea of a mass exodus from the party. “Is that what it's going to take to sort of get this straightened out? Is it going to take people saying to the party, I'm out if you can't get your act together?” she wondered.
