'The View' Panel Praises Buttigieg as 'Antithesis' of President Trump


During a discussion about white privilege and Mayor Pete Buttigieg on The View Tuesday, co-host Joy Behar tried to argue that even poor "white guys who don't have a lot" have white privilege: "even though you're having a hard time, you still have a privilege if you're white, even if you're poor only because of the things I just said. If you have some money, you can buy a house wherever you want. You can shop wherever you want. You can go to the school in the neighborhood that is a good neighborhood for you." Co-host Sunny Hostin brought the conversation back to Buttigieg: "I adore him...I really do. I think he's sort of the antithesis of what we see in the White House because he has empathy, he can seemingly walk in other people's shoes." Co-host Meghan McCain approached the conversation from a slightly different angle, arguing that Buttigieg has victim status because he is gay: "I love the fact that he's married to a man. It's not something we're talking about but I also think it's something that we shouldn't ignore...He couldn't legally marry his husband until recently so it's okay to say that there's also some privileges that he didn't have up until recently."
