“The View” Not Forthcoming to VP’s Staff Over False Positive COVID Tests

CNN reports that someone familiar with the issue states that VP Kamala Harris’ staff are concerned with “The View” handled the situation.

Last Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris made an appearance on “The View,” but the interview with the show ended up not being done in-person as it was initially intended. 

After co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro had false COVID-19 test results, the show went into chaos, pulling the two from the set. CNNs Oliver Darcy reports that “The View” hosts were required to take a PCR test within 24 hours of the interview.

The night before the Harris’ appearance, the tests had come back negative. The vice president and her staff didn’t know the truth until the tense moment on live television when Hostin and Navarro were abruptly removed. 

Following the bizarre moment, the Harris’ team was left perplexed and inquired about what happened, considering a spokesperson for “The View” provided the “all clear,” implying that the show had completed the conditions to continue with the taping.

CNN is also reporting that someone familiar with the issue states that Harris and her staff are concerned with how “The View” handled the situation.

“According to a person familiar with the matter, “The View” has not been forthcoming with the vice president’s office, leaving Harris’ staff “deeply concerned” about what happened,” Darcy reported. 

“People familiar with the matter also said that ABC News President Kim Godwin, who was in attendance for the taping, was irked and embarrassed by the whole fiasco.”

Emerald Robinson’s Days at Newsmax Are Numbered

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role.

Newsmax’s White House reporter Emerald Robinson could be counting her days with the network as The Daily Beast reports that there’s a replacement lined up to replace Robinson. 

According to the information, Newsmax will be tapping former Fox News chief D.C. correspondent James Rosen to take over the role. Rosen is currently a political reporter for Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

Twitter banned Robinson following a tweet regarding the COVID-19 vaccine stating that it carries a “bioluminescent” tracking device with satanic powers. As a result, the social media platform handed her a seven-day suspension.

The network would then pull her off any on-air duties, and then after her suspension was over it resulted in the permanent ban from Twitter. 

The Daily Beast spoke to a current staffer who stated that the consensus view amongst Newsmax employees is that “she’s just going to be gone” but “nothing definitive.” Another source told the media outlet that Robinson is almost unquestionably done with Newsmax. 

Furthermore, two sources also told The Daily Beast that Newsmax is negotiating with Rosen to become their new chief D.C. correspondent. “Unfortunately, we cannot comment on personnel issues,” a Newsmax spokesperson stated on the report.

The tweet read, “Kyle Rittenhouse testified in his own murder trial yesterday, breaking down in tears as he told the jury he murdered two men at a Black Lives Matter protest last year in self-defense.”

Last week, Rittenhouse testified that he was running to put out a fire when a man named Joseph Rosenbaum allegedly ambushed him.

Rittenhouse claimed one man, Joshua Ziminski, walked toward him with a pistol while Rosenbaum was closing in on his right side.

Closing arguments in the trial are scheduled to begin on Monday.
