‘The View’ Co-Hosts Criticize Women Voters Alongside Clinton for 2016 Loss: ‘Hope That Does Not Happen Again’

The hosts of ABC’s “The View” talked about Hillary Clinton’s recent comments on how some women voters chose Donald Trump over her in the 2016 presidential election.

Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar criticized White women voters for supporting Trump instead of Clinton during Tuesday’s episode.

Hostin said, “53% of White women voted for Trump. I don’t understand that and hope it doesn’t happen again.”

She pointed out that President Biden won most women voters in 2020, which helped him defeat Trump.

The discussion started with the hosts saying Democratic voters should take Clinton’s warnings about Trump seriously.

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin slammed White female voters for choosing Trump over Clinton in the 2016 election.

Hostin mentioned Clinton’s point that women voters were the key group that didn’t vote for her in 2016. “Hillary talked about the sexism she faced, being the most qualified candidate ever.

She was a senator, Secretary of State, lawyer, and valedictorian. But she said women didn’t vote for her,” Hostin said.

These comments came from a New York Times interview with Clinton for the book “The Fall of Roe: The Rise of a New America.”

In the interview, Clinton said women voters didn’t support her because they felt she needed to be perfect, unlike Trump.

She said, “They were willing to take a risk on Trump because he was a man, and they could imagine a man as president.”

Hostin added, “90-some percent of Black women and 60-something percent of Hispanic women voted for Clinton. But 53% of White women chose Trump. It’s important to understand how dangerous Trump is to women.”

Behar agreed and said the same thing happened with former President Obama.

“People, including women, think a woman or a Black man has to be perfect to run for president. Obama was very smart, loved his wife, and was a great person,” she said.

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin joked, “Just say you think he’s sexy.”
