'The View' co-host slams media focus on Hunter Biden, Trump trials: 'Convoluted distraction'

"The View" co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin criticized the media on Tuesday for their coverage of the Donald Trump and Hunter Biden trials, arguing that it was distracting Americans from issues they really care about.

"I am frustrated, that this election cycle, the media coverage feels like it’s trial this, conviction this, this trial, him walking into the courtroom. Why aren’t we talking about what people care about, their ability to afford utilities this summer, the economy, addressing border security? It just becomes this convoluted distraction that I worry is making people tune out the news and not wanting to be engaged politically," Griffin said. 

Griffin referred to both Trump, who was found guilty by a Manhattan jury on Thursday, and Hunter Biden, who is facing three felony firearm offenses regarding the 2018 purchase of a .38 revolver from a gun shop in Delaware.

Co-host Joy Behar jumped in and argued that people tune out when the media talks about the accomplishments of President Biden's administration.
