Unfortunately, most of the time Jedediah Bila plays her role as the token conservative on ABC’s daytime political talk show The View exactly how ABC executives want her to play it. She pretends to present a conservative point of view, but almost always caves to her flaming liberal co-hosts like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
However, Bila managed to actually find a backbone when it came to two-time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and why she lost to Republican Donald Trump in the 2016 election. The impetus was the announcement that Hillary Clinton had decided to name her upcoming memoir What Happened. Bila dug into Hillary for still refusing to take responsibility for her election loss.
Said Jedediah about the title of Hillary’s book, “They don’t need her to put most of the blame on Russia. What they do need is for her to acknowledge she was a bad candidate. I don’t think she would have been the candidate if the DNC hadn’t worked so hard to push Bernie Sanders out of the way and put her in. She wasn’t charismatic. She skipped a whole bunch of states, she skipped the ground game in important states, she didn’t have a solid, cohesive message and many Democrats have come forth and said we need you to acknowledge these things so that we can fix them within the party so next time it doesn’t happen.”
Summed up Bila about Clinton, “I want to hear her say the primary reason that I lost this election was because of me.” Of course, Joy Behar came to Hillary’s defense, saying, “She takes responsibility in one of the interviews.” Shot back Bila, “No. She said Russia, Comey, the kitchen sink, and then herself!”
Then the ABC show had liberal co-host Sunny Hostin shoot back at Bila, saying, “The bottom line is I know how you feel about that she lacks charisma and the e-mails, the e-mails, the e-mails, the e-mails. But the bottom line is she was defeated by some forces that were outside of her control. There was the Comey letter sent out October 28th, a week before the election.” After the audience finished cheering, Hostin added, “You also have the factors that there were many voters afraid and they were tired of diversification of America. You have the tide of sexism. There are all of these factors and then her opponent is someone who had sexual harassment claims, who talks about grabbing women by the you know what, who refuses to release his tax returns and you’re concerned she used the wrong e-mail address?” Are you glad Bila stuck to her guns on this liberal show?
