Senator Mitch McConnell’s exit from his responsibilities has everyone gripped with shock. According to multiple reports, McConnell, the longest-serving Senate leader in history, will formally be stepping down as a Senator in November. His sudden departure from the role grasped the panelists' attention from The View.

The hosts Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Sunny Hostin, and Alyssa Farah Griffin each chimed in with their thoughts. However, it was Griffin whose thoughts had everyone pondering. The co-host alleged that whoever acts as McConnell’s replacement will be ‘far worse’ per The Wrap.

The conversation was prompted by Goldberg when she asked her peers about feeling downcast about his announcement. To everyone’s surprise, the hosts unanimously replied, “No.”

To establish her stance on his leaving, Behar remarked, “I will miss him like I miss bird flu. Is that clear enough?” This earned a light giggle across the table. Shortly after Behar made her point known, Griffin’s suggestion captivated everyone’s attention. With a serious yet cryptic tone, she warned, “My caution would be this: maybe trust the enemy you know.” 



 

Griffin continued to explain her thoughts suggesting, “Who you are gonna get in Mitch McConnell’s place will be more extreme.” Griffin noted that it most likely might be someone who wouldn’t ‘support aid’ to Ukraine. Furthermore, she appreciated McConnell’s ‘迟丑辞耻驳丑迟蹿耻濒’ statements and his ‘willingness’ to cooperate with The White House. 



 

Griffin also had a few suggestions for McConnell now that he’s going to get a whole lot freer. However, she urged him to ‘denounce Donald Trump’ and unpack everything possibly illegal while working with the twice-impeached former President. Griffin was urging McConnell to expose the skeletons in Trump’s closet that he knew of. 



 

 

She suggestively asked, “Why not, at this moment, just say what you truly know?” Griffin also highlighted the fact that they’ve not been on speaking terms for nearly three years. She explained, “This would be a moment for McConnell to say, ‘This is not the right direction for our country, I’m not supporting Donald Trump.”



 

 

To possibly add fuel to the fire, Griffin recalled the time Trump passed a few remarks about his dear wife, much like Ted Cruz, per a 2022 USA Today article. Goldberg claimed that those passes at his wife should’ve been the catalyst for him to abandon his support for Trump.

Earlier on, Griffin and her co-hosts agreed about McConnell’s alleged role in Trump’s administration while he was still in presidential power - something they weren’t very ecstatic about.

Furthermore, they agreed that he did have a big part to play concerning the former President’s rapid rise to power. McConnell’s future remains an enigma for the moment, with many suspicious of his next moves. Would he truly denounce Trump as suggested by Griffin because of his history, or will McConnell remain a pillar of silent support? That is yet to be uncovered.
