It’s official — Hillary Clinton has conceded to President-elect Donald J. Trump after the GOP nominee stunned America with his election win Tuesday night.
Though voters on both sides of the aisle still seemed in shock Wednesday morning, few were as “colorful” in their commentary as the ladies on “The View.”
Whoopi Goldberg called it “shocking,” while Joy Behar said she was “slowly getting drunk” throughout their election night coverage:
“It was a rough night for everybody I think. We’re worried, the people are worried.
You know, okay, he’s the president, now what? We’re watching you, okay?”
Behar went on to explain what really scares her, which is a Republican-controlled White House, Congress, Senate and, potentially, the Supreme Court.
Former Fox News contributor Jedediah Bila was quick to jump in and explain that, within the Republican Party, there are “bold differences” among conservatives:
“You have a Libertarian wing of the party, I’ve always said, ‘How does John McCain and Rand Paul wind up in the same party?’ They disagree fundamentally on foreign policy issues. I mean, Hillary Clinton was far more hawkish in her speech than Donald Trump was. So, I think there are a lot of checks still. I think the Republican Party is trying to figure out who they are and what they stand for, and Donald Trump will want to do some things in that party that some people will not approve of and will stand up against.”
Co-host Sarah Haines said she had an “ah-ha” moment as the results poured in, admitting that maybe her critics are right and she is out of touch with what “the world’s all about”:
“It was like a punch in the gut.”
I know who I voted for, but only because it was the better option between the 2…not because I am super psyched this year:(

The only woman who seemed happy about the results was Candace Cameron Bure, an outspoken evangelical Christian and Republican.
Bure said she was even a little afraid to speak her mind Wednesday morning, knowing that she was in a room full of people who weren’t thrilled about Trump winning:
“I was a person that voted on policy, and so in that sense, I am happy with the result.
And yet, if anything, I hope, no matter what side you were one, it brings all of us as a people to a horizontal posture — brings us to our knees, our face to the floor, that we pray for our country.
That we pray for him, whether you think he could turn this upside down, or you’re praying he will uphold the positions he said he would.”
Whoopi had a scathing response about Trump’s character.
