"The View" on Michelle Wolf

It was just this past Saturday night when the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner took place in Washington, D.C. The event has been a yearly tradition since 1921 when the sitting president and his administration gather together with the media in a show of unity and support for journalism.

Since the early 1980s, the event has included a comedian who takes humorous jabs at the press and the president, with the commander in chief returning the favor with a roast of his own. However, due to Donald Trump's feud with the media, he decided to once again skip the dinner for the second year in a row.

White House Correspondents' Dinner host Michelle Wolf continued with her routine, poking fun at Donald Trump and his administration, including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Wolf has since faced massive backlash due to her jokes, which were highlighted on the May 1 edition of "The View." "This is a big gift to Trump supporters," co-host meghan mccain said, before citing a poll that found that 89 percent of Republicans believe that the majority of the mainstream media is "fake news." McCain then went on to add that right-wingers feel that the media "hate(s) the people in the middle of the country."

"It might be a big fat gift to the Republicans but I take issue with you saying that we hate the middle of the country," co-host Whoopi Goldberg added, stating "that's not true." Meghan McCain attempted to clarify her remarks, saying she wasn't accusing Goldberg of hating the middle of the country.

Whoopi doubles down

"Sometimes I think that conservatives and Republicans forget that the tone of all of this began several years ago with Republicans making statements that felt not-inclusive," Whoopi Goldberg pointed out. "We got passed that. We got through Obama then we get somebody who comes in and begins this dialogue," she added, in reference to Donald Trump.

Ever since Donald Trump announced his campaign for president back in June 2015, the issue has been a hot topic on "The View." With Meghan McCain being the only conservative on the panel, she often clashes with the more liberal-leaning hosts like Whoopi Goldberg, though her spats with fellow co-host Joy Behar have received the most attention in recent months. As the Trump administration moves forward, it's expected that heated debates on political issues will continue on "The View" for the foreseeable future.
