Bryan Griffin the deputy press secretary to Governor Ron DeSantis stated that “The View” may actually want to hear from the Florida governor on Monday.
Griffin tweeted a clip that showed DeSantis actually being approached to make an appearance after ABC had once more blasted him.
“@TheView requested our office Friday to make arrangements with Governor DeSantis for an appearance on the show. Thoughts? Griffin tweeted.
.@TheView emailed our office on Friday asking for us to arrange an appearance from Governor DeSantis on the show. “We would be honored,” they wrote.

We obtained images of the email. The email showed Todd Polkes (supervising talent producer), reaching out to DeSantis’ media team on Friday.
“I hope you’re having a good summer. I am reaching out to invite Gov. Ron DeSantis to be our special guest on THE VIEW next season, which starts Sept. 6. We would be honored to have him join us in the studio sometime in the Fall,” Polkes wrote.
He stated, “It will only be a few weeks before the midterm elections and THE VIEW could be an ideal spot for millions to recall what’s at stake during this election. “Our show, which is the most important and influential TV show for women, will reach millions of female viewers via social networking and television.
The message continued, “We will likely have a new conservative host joining us at that time in addition to Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, and Sara Haines which will bring even more attention to THE VIEW. They are very concerned about such issues as the economy, environment, abortion, and voting rights.”
He said, “Please let us know if we can discuss, happy speaking over the phone as well.”
DeSantis has been prominent in the Republican Party’s rise to prominence. The panel criticized DeSantis in April as “punishing Disney,” for removing the company’s self-governing status in response to opposition to the Parental Rights in Education bill.
In September, co-host Joy Behar suggested that DeSantis was putting “political ambitions” above the safety of children by prohibiting mask mandates in schools.
Behar stated that “He should be criminally liable for that.” When you allow people to die under your watchful eye, you are guilty of negligent murder. ”
DeSantis also has repeatedly criticized mainstream media efforts to discredit him or his administration.
DeSantis insists that he is not intimidated by the legacy media’s smears.
We reached “The View” in an effort to get their opinions, but we did not receive a response immediately.
In December, a Politico report claimed that the show was struggling to find a replacement conservative co-host after the departure of Meghan McCain. Sources familiar with the show stated on Tuesday that Alyssa Farah Griffin, who served in the Trump administration as a White House director of strategic communications, has been tapped as the new host. Despite Griffin’s position under Trump, however, she has been a vocal critic of both the former president and Republicans.
