'The View' explodes over criticism of drag queens: They 'don't even like children!'

The co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” on Friday trashed conservatives over their legislative efforts and rhetoric against “gender-affirming care” and drag queen performances, with multiple hosts giving impassioned speeches on the subject.

The talk show panel called GOP bills on such issues an effort to promote “fear,” as well as “paranoia and hysteria” about drag queens and LGBTQ issues. 

During the discussion, co-host Ana Navarro exclaimed that drag queens “don’t even like children.”

Navarro mentioned how in previous decades the wedge issues Republicans used to stoke fear with were gay marriage and immigration. 

“In 2024, the issue is transgender, because we’re past gay marriage. That ship has sailed. And it’s this idea of driving people to the polls through fear, through anger, through angst, through the stress, through the — you know, the paranoia and hysteria that drag queens are coming for your children,” she said.

Blasting the idea that drag queens are trying to influence children, Navarro proclaimed, “People, let me tell you this, drag queens don’t even like children. They don’t tip, and they don’t drink, you know!” Her co-hosts and the crowd laughed.

“Leave the drag queens alone, man!” she said, exasperated. 

Co-host Sara Haines jumped in, arguing that drag queen story hours are fine because they are presenting “children’s reading material, and they’re reading and entertaining them.”

The conversation then turned to LGBTQ youth and “gender-affirming care.” 

“You’re making them feel like they don’t deserve to be here and that they don’t deserve to live,” she added.

Goldberg then yelled into the camera, “This is on your hands!”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said the Republican Party is “alienating the LGBTQ+ community” and even conservatives like her who are allies.
