Despite Romney's Trepidation About 'The View' -- Captured on Stealth Video -- He Books Appearance on the Show THR
Mitt Romney describes most of the hosts of ABC’s "The View" as "sharp-tongued" in a hidden video that surfaced this week -- but that hasn't kept him from booking an appearance on the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As previously reported, the video captured some of Romney's views on the media, as well as his criticisms of President Obama's supporters. Among the revelations, the GOP candidate refers to “The View” as “high risk," noting that only one of the show's five co-hosts is conservative -- presumably a reference to Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
Romney will appear on "The View" next month. He has been on the show three times before.
The Romney campaign sent a statement to the show, noting that presidential hopeful Romney and his wife would "love to once more join the sharp-tongued chatter in October.” The statement was read by Hasselbeck, the piece notes.
His comments about the show were discussed on the program, with co-host Sherri Shepherd saying, "If you can’t handle four sharp-tongued women, how are you going to handle the country," according to the story.
Co-host Barbara Walters said they would love to have him back on the show, and she was confident he could handle their questions, the piece notes.
