After two days stressit’s safe to say that conservative commentator Lauren Wright did not receive a stamp of approval from To watchco-host. On her second and final day at the table, Wright, a political science lecturer at Princeton, spent a full 30 contradictory minutes with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines, the who seemed exasperated by her conservative talking points and selective usage. the truth. Although the ladies never mentioned Meghan McCain by name, Wright seemed to be letting them know, as Behar muttered under his breath at one point, “Oh my, if I hear that again. “

For the second day in a row, Wright briefly clashed with her co-hosts during the discussion about lifting COVID restrictions, though she spent several minutes fighting off the “inconsistent” policies of the group. the Biden administration and the “left-wing” CDC. “Tell me how the CDC makes behavioral and social recommendations that are scientific,” she said. “They get tough questions about ‘Why are you texting inconsistently? How scientific is it that when I’m sitting at a restaurant, I breathe and I can take it off, and then I have to put it on. the bathroom?’ … It’s political because it takes into account assumptions about human behavior, which epidemiologists are sometimes not very good at. It’s not consistently applied. It really treats everyone. people like children.”

Whoopi replied: “One of the things people forget is that we don’t know anything about this. Referring to McCain, the longtime moderator continued, “We have a person here who used to get very upset with people who said you should wear a different type of mask, or that you shouldn’t wear a mask. They didn’t. “I know! So I can give them that. “

After Wright advocated getting rid of federal mandates – “We can be smart, competent adults about this,” she said – she did exactly what Whoopi just warned her not to. should do. “By the way, this whole thing started with Dr. Fauci saying, ‘Masks don’t really work, we don’t really need them,’ Wright said as the whole table protested.

“The truth of the matter is that nobody knows what this is,” repeated Whoopi (which Wright insists “he did”). “Fauci said, ‘Listen, this is what I suggest.’ He didn’t say, ‘You have to do this.’ He said, ‘Here’s what I recommend for what I’m seeing.’ That I appreciate.”

Things only get more nasty in the next segment, a Hot Topic about a police video appearing to discriminate against a Black teen while breaking up a fight in a shopping mall. in New Jersey. Wright opened his monologue by agreeing that the video was “a clear example of racial prejudice”, but then again reverted to talking point “Democrats are at fault too”. “In the summer of 2020, when we had our best chance after the death of George Floyd, we had our best chance in Congress, and Democrats used the opportunity to block it,” she said. Tim Scott’s police reform bill.

“It was only after Republicans blocked the reform bill introduced by Democrats,” Hostin replied. “It’s just after. It’s not chronological.”

Wright then pivoted on “Decoding the Police,” saying, “The estimates are that white libertarians favor ‘Rescue the Police’ over African-Americans.” The guest co-host was immediately met with resistance from Whoopi and Behar, who asked her to provide some kind of citation for her remarks. “Do you have a statistic about that? Do you have an actual number?” Behar asked.

“No, the white Democrats -” Wright said. “I’m a white Democrat,” Behar replied. “I don’t believe in bringing down the police.”

“Okay, I’m not talking about you unless you take the survey with thousands of people in it,” Wright said. “I’m just saying that these are not based on real neighborhoods and real experiences where people are going through these things.”
