ABC News Hit With Cease and Desist Over Comments on

“The View” Hosts SERVED – Lawyers Were Called In!

( – Turning Point USA (TPUSA) held a Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida, beginning on July 22. Groups of protesters showed up at the venue on the event’s second day, including White supremacists who argued with a group of far-left activists. Turning Point’s attorneys have hit the hosts of ABC’s “The View” with legal notice after they made comments about the conference.

On Monday, July 25, the ABC hosts discussed the neo-Nazis who attended the protests outside. Joy Behar accused Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) of doing nothing to stop them. Yet, he didn’t participate that day; he gave his speech on Friday. Whoopi Goldberg claimed the conference let them in the venue, but that was also incorrect. Later in the show, the hosts clarified that the supremacists were outside of the conference and never let in.

TPUSA Attorney Veronica Peterson wasn’t pleased. She sent the show a cease-and-desist order, accusing the hosts of “intentionally and falsely” associating the conservative group “with neo-Nazi protestors outside the event” and “denigrating” the organization in a way that “negatively impact[ed] its public perception,” according to the New York Post.

On Wednesday, “The View” issued a correction and apologized for linking the White supremacists to TPUSA, even though the organization tried to have them removed from outside of the venue.

It’s unclear whether the apology will be enough to stop TPUSA from taking further legal action.
