Hosts on ‘The View’ tried making a claim against Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, suggesting his donations are a recurring charge. However, it only took a few seconds for people to debunk their suggestion because Ron DeSantis’ WinRed page does NOT have the box checked for people to automatically make a recurring donation. That box has to be checked manually, meaning it is YOUR personal choice to make, not done automatically. DeSantis also fired back, saying “and they tried to say that like, we had auto-donate where it keeps going every month. We do not do that in my [campaign]… They were lying about that. We do not do that.”
WATCH The View hosts try to shame DeSantis for a bogus reason:
Alyssa Farah Griffin said: “It is so unfair. It is a grift. It is terrible…” Sunny Hostin chimed in: “Who are these people giving money to these people?” The guy called it a ‘warchest’ and said it’s a lot of people with a lot of big money making the big donations and also suggested that a lot of them could be Trump donors.
Reporter Jerry Dunleavy pointed out how DeSantis’ recurring box is not automatically checked, completely debunked Farah Griffin’s suggestion. Dunleavy posted: “Putting aside Alyssa Farah calling something a “grift”— I just checked & the WinRed donation page for DeSantis’s gubernatorial campaign does not automatically make a donation a recurring one, but instead it’s a box you have to voluntarily select yourself.”

Don’t forget, co-host Joy Behar said she would retire in 2022. It’s July and she’s still not retired.
After being on the show for 21 seasons, Joy Behar suggested she would scheduled a departure date from “The View.” Behar, 77, is reportedly hoping to eventually step down as the liberal resident of the ABC daytime talk show after the end of her contract in the summer of 2022. She disclosed her plans in a new interview for the paperback of the nonfiction book “Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of ‘The View'” by Ramin Setoodeh of Variety.
“I have a three-year contract,” Behar stated in the book. “But that doesn’t mean I can’t leave if I want to, because they can’t really do anything to me at this point. I don’t see myself staying for more [time]. That’s it! I could be wrong. If I’m as fabulous in  as I am now, I’ll think about. But the chances of that happening…” She stopped to reflect. “You know, time marches on. I’m not a kid.”
Several sources on “The View” confirmed that Behar was suggesting an exit from the show in 2022. A spokesperson for ABC denied that Behar would leave. “This is not true,” a network rep said. “Joy was asked what happens at the end of her contract and as she herself made clear in the interview, if she’s ‘as fabulous in  as I am now,’ she will be in her seat at the table.”
If Behar proceeds with her plan, she will leave “The View” just before her 80th birthday. Creator Barbara Walters left the series at age 84 in 2014. Behar has remained on “The View” for a longer time than any other co-host. She joined the talk show when it first launched in 1997 after auditioning for Walters, and she withstood endless exits and reboots over three decades as the TV landscape changed.
In 2013, Behar was sacked when the daytime executives at ABC decided that “The View” should be less political (an idea that sounds ridiculous now). However, two years later, in 2015, she was brought back to the Hot Topics table as ratings plummeted without her, and she is still thriving with her swift commentary on the latest Trump White House scandals.
