Tuesday morning’s The View featured the ABC co-hosts being proponents of several conspiracy theories about former President Trump’s classified documents case, particularly pushing the debunked assertion that he intended to sell them. Alyssa Farah Griffin, the show’s faux “conservative,” also expressed her belief that the judge would have to have been “fundamentally screwing up the case” if Trump got “less than five to ten years” in jail as his penalty.

The segment began with racist Sunny Hostin asking Farah Griffin why she thought that Trump had kept the documents. Hostin’s loaded question included her conjecture that he had kept them because “he thought that he could sell them” or “leverage them” to his own advantage. She hurriedly assured the audience that she was “not saying it,” because she did not “want to get sued,” but she had already betrayed her convictions.
