Griffin released a footage showing that they had sought out for a proposed appearance after the ABC talk show attacked DeSantis once more.
“Friday, @TheView sent an email to our office requesting that we set up a Governor DeSantis appearance on the program. They wrote, “We would be honored.” Thoughts?” Tweets from Griffin.

“I hope your summer is going well. I’m contacting you to extend an invitation for Gov. Ron DeSantis to appear as a special guest on THE VIEW during the upcoming season, which premieres on September 6. He could come work with us in the fall, and we’d be thrilled to have him “Polkes composed.
Added he, “The View is a great location to remind millions of people what is at stake in the election with only a few weeks until the midterm elections. Our show would be able to reach millions of female voters across the nation on television and social media as the most significant and powerful TV show for women.”
The message went on: “Along with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines, there will probably be a new conservative host joining us at that point, which will increase interest in THE VIEW. Concerns including the economic, the environment, abortion, and voting rights are top of mind for them.”
He ended, “Please let me know if we can discuss; delighted to talk on the phone as well.”

Since DeSantis rose to prominence in the Republican Party, “The View” has repeatedly criticized him and his policies. The panel slammed DeSantis in April for “punishing” Disney by depriving it of its autonomy after the firm expressed opposition to the Parental Rights in Education bill.
In September, co-host Joy Behar said that by opposing mask requirements in schools, DeSantis was placing “political ambitions” over the safety of children.
He ought to be held accountable for that in court, Behar added. When someone dies while you are watching them, you are actually guilty of negligent homicide.
In the meantime, DeSantis has consistently condemned attempts by the mainstream media to malign him and his government.
DeSantis said in June that “I am not discouraged by any smear piece by these legacy media outlets.”

The View was contacted by Fox News Digital for comment, but no response was received right away.
Following Meghan McCain’s departure, a Politico report from December suggested that the show was having trouble finding a new conservative co-host. Alyssa Farah Griffin, who worked as the White House director of strategic communications during the Trump administration, has been chosen as the show’s next host, according to sources familiar with it, Fox News Digital said on Tuesday. Griffin has been a strong opponent of both the former president and Republicans despite her position under Trump.
