Today on ViewSara Haines and Ana Navarro have completely butchered one of the most tragic and romantic films of all time by comparing the two leads to donald trump and hillary clinton. What in the world? As the panel discussed the Trump family investigation, they broached the subject of the former president’s obsession with “Crooked Hillary.” And as they did, Ang Lee’s 2005 masterpiece Brokeback Mountain was used in a comparison for former presidential candidates. Uh, guys, maybe it’s time to rewatch this movie and see what it’s really about come?
“It’s 2016 again,” Joy Behar began. “Trump rants about fake media witch hunts and spins crazy conspiracy theories about ‘Crooked Hillary,’ of course. Remember ‘Lock her up’? She’ll still be investigated.
While View quickly hijacked the conversation away from Clinton, focusing instead on Trump’s misdemeanors, Navarro and Haines couldn’t help but throw shade at the former president’s ongoing digs at the former Democratic nominee. As Sunny Hostin read a legal memo from Trump that denied all allegations against him, Haines sympathized with Clinton.
“Surprise he didn’t blame Hillary Clinton,” she said.
Behar added: “It’s his next move!”
“Why is he so obsessed with her?” Haines said, pinching her face in disgust.
“He can’t leave her!” Navarro replied “He can’t leave her.”
While the other panelists didn’t seem to catch the reference, Haines surely picked up on what Navarro was writing.
“You went Brokeback Mountain on it,” Haines joked.
And with that, the show had to go commercial, changing the subject to The Tinder scammer in the next hot topic – but what a gonzo comparison. In Brokeback Mountain, Jake Gyllenhaal’s Jack Twist tells his lover, Ennis (Heath Ledger), “I wish I knew how to leave you” in reference to their forbidden gay love. It does not sound whatever like the relationship between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but apparently, View thinks.
