This week, ABC’s “The View” made headlines when the panel discussed former President Donald Trump’s indictment on charges related to his management of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
However, the panel and audience were left gasping and astonished after co-host Ana Navarro compared her “excitement” to reading the Trump indictment using a grossly inappropriate sexual reference.
“I haven’t had this much fun reading anything since I read ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’” she said, drawing an array of responses and sounds from the crowd. “I mean, this was the best reading you can imagine.”
Navarro then criticized the lavatory facilities at Mar-a-Lago, where documents were allegedly stored.
“People, have you seen that toilet?” she said as a picture of the fixture flashed up onscreen. “They don’t even sell those low-to-the-ground toilets anymore.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is a book series that describes a relationship between a man and a woman that entails a significant amount of sexually charged bondage, torture, and suffering for “pleasure.”
Navarro believed that reading these novels gave her the same “excitement” as reading the indictment against Trump.
This is the second time in a week that a shocking remark has thrown the program into disarray.
A few days ago, things became strange after co-host Sara Haines reportedly made an inappropriate remark for which her audio was removed.
The segment began with the women at the table discussing ABC’s recent announcement that the Bachelor universe will be expanded to include “golden years.” In The Golden Bachelor, a senior citizen will date women with “lifetimes of experience,” according to the description of the program.
Whoopi Goldberg kicked things off by saying, “I’m calling it the ‘Old People’s Bachelor,’” which triggered many of the hosts to also make a slew of inappropriate comments about a senior citizen having the opportunity to date women with “experience.”
Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin shared that she thought this was “a good idea,” adding, “A lot of couples on The Bachelor don’t stay together, it’s people in their young 20s, a lot of 23-year-old girls… I think having a 60+ bachelor and bachelorettes will actually be more likely to last in a relationship because you know who you are and what you want.”
Sunny Hostin and Joy Behar escalated the situation by making a joke about the elders using “the Fantasy Suite,” which prompted Haines to make a remark that was deemed so inappropriate that producers cut it before it was broadcast live.
“You guys, these are only 60-year-olds!” she said. “Do you know how young 60 is? I know 60-year-olds, they run marathons. They do –” Haines said before her mic was cut.
The camera panned to Goldberg, who displayed a stunned expression.
