‘The View’ Audience, Hosts Celebrate News Of Flynn Guilty Plea: ‘Lock Him Up!’


‘The View’ Audience, Hosts Celebrate News Of Flynn Guilty Plea: ‘Lock Him Up!’

The hosts of ABC’s ‘The View’ celebrated upon hearing a breaking news report by ABC’s Brian Ross that Michael Flynn had promised his full cooperation to the Mueller team and is prepared to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.”

“Yes!” host Joy Behar exclaimed. “Yay!”

“He goes to jail! He goes to jail! He goes to jail! Lock him up, lock him up!”

“Take this moment, Joy, take this moment,” said co-host Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain. “I give this to you.”

“For me, this is the antithesis of election night,” Behar said. “On election night, I had to wear a veil, I was in mourning. So this is like the antithesis of that hideous night, and that is why I am happy.”

“There is no legal definition for collusion, but there is a legal definition for conspiracy,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “Conspiracy requires an overt act from one person to another, I could prove an overt act, easily.”

“I remember Richard Nixon, and Richard Nixon stepped down, and so should Donald Trump,” Behar said.

“If he is going to be taken down for what he did, and this country can start to heal… that is a happy day,” she said later. “Justice is messy.”

“To me it is not a happy day, it is a sad day,” former Jeb Bush staffer Ana Navarro said. “For me what it is, first of all, we’re still in this process, it is a scary day. The idea that this guy, he was having contact with the Russians, during the election, was then named National Security Adviser — the power that that has. The intelligence, the clearance, the access, the influence, the profile, the international implications — this guy, this former general who knew what he was doing, had been having contact with the Russians and was able to get that position, and that Donald Trump continued protecting him, over and over again… is scary as hell.”
