President Donald Trump has made no effort to keep his thoughts on the trial of his former advisor, Roger Stone, a secret.

Stone was convicted of lying to Congress, obstructing justice, and threatening a witness last year. When prosecutors recommended a seven to nine year prison sentence, Trump fumed on Twitter and the Justice Department subsequently overrode the opinion of its prosecutors, who resigned in response.

Today, Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for his crimes, leading everyone to ask: Will Trump pardon one of his most vocal allies?

President Donald Trump's eldest son, Don Jr., appeared with girlfriend and political analyst Kimberly Guilfoyle on The View to promote his new book, Triggered, but a number of tense moments during the show upstaged it.

Though the prince of trolling did his best to turn the entire panel into a YouTube comments section, cohost Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), confronted Junior about his attacks on the Khans, a Muslim Gold Star family whose speech at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 sparked attacks from the Trump family.

It is no surprise that the ladies of The View are not fans of President Donald Trump. Liberal hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin remain on brand while conservative pundit Meghan McCain has a more personal reason—related to the President's treatment of her father—for disliking Trump.

The day after the President held a MAGA rally in Orlando, Florida to officially launch his next presidential campaign, the hosts discussed the similarities between the campaign rhetoric of 2016 and the 2020 campaign launch.

Whoopi Goldberg stepped in and rebuked her co-host Meghan McCain for her views on abortion during a contentious moment on The View.

It all began when McCain dismissed actress Alyssa Milano’s call for a “#sexstrike” in protest of Georgia’s new law banning abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected, saying “people like Alyssa Milano need to understand…women aren’t just one section of the population like her. I feel like pro-life women are completely left out of conversations like this.”

Things got heated on Tuesday night's episode of Late Night with Seth Myers when guest Meghan McCain was asked if she still stood by her comments about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Omar in March criticized the powerful pro-Israel lobby, which some interpreted as a swipe against Jews. Though she meant no offense, Omar later apologized. But McCain still tried to connect her to the synagogue shooting.
