Sunny Hostin: ‘I Wanted Statistics and Pushback’ From Leslie Stahl With Marjorie Taylor Greene

During Monday’s episode of “The View,” the co-hosts criticized CBS’ Lesley Stahl for her interview with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, saying Stahl did not push back enough. Co-hosts Sara Haines and Ana Navarro believed the interview was wrong for “60 Minutes” and argued that CBS gave Greene a larger platform than she deserved. 

According to Fox News Digital, Sunny Hostin said she expected more pushback from Stahl during the interview, and Alyssa Farah Griffin agreed.

“I don’t have a problem with her having that platform because I thought she looked like an idiot,” Hostin said. “I hate doing this because I think Lesley Stahl is a great journalist. I wanted statistics and pushback. ‘Well, why do you say that? Who have you heard say that? What about this statistic? What about that?'” 

According to Alyssa Farah Griffin, the discussion was somewhat of a “chicken or egg” situation.

“I feel like it is a little bit of a chicken or egg discussion,” she said. “MTG is in our public consciousness, she’s been mocked on ‘SNL,’ she’s a staple of it, everyone knows who she is, she’s a household name, but her actual authority and power, voting power, legislative power in Congress are pretty small.”

Whoopi Goldberg ripped up her notes and disclosed that she did not see the interview.

“I want to remind people that that woman says she’s a protector of children, but she wants more guns in schools. She saw the Parkland shooting as a false flag and said, ‘oh no, somebody on my team did it.’ If it is on your stuff, you have seen it and are aware of it,” Goldberg began.
