Did Candace Cameron-Bure feud with Michael Moore on a recent appearance on The View? It sounds like they might have.
As we know, The View has had its fair share of on-air arguments. Some of these tiffs were combative, and other co-hosts played nice with each other on-air. There’s also been instances of co-hosts battling behind the scenes. The Inquisitr reported that the latest feud to hit The View was between Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.
Whoopi Goldberg was allegedly feuding with Joy Behar due to the co-host “grandstanding” when she chose to exit The View in 2013, only to return a few months later. According to a source, Goldberg and Behar were arguing over power on The View, as well. “Whoopi and Joy appear to get along in front of the cameras, but backstage, it’s a different matter. They’re mortal enemies — and Joy wants to be the queen bee!”
Candace Cameron-Bure’s feud isn’t your typical squabble. While we’ve seen co-hosts battle it out with each other on The View, but it’s a rarity to see co-hosts conflict with guests on the show. That said, liberal filmmaker Michael Moore isn’t your usual guest. The filmmaker is known to stir the pot with his strong unapologetic left-wing views, went head to head with the conservative co-host on a subject that she holds close to her — faith.

According to Raw Story, Michael Moore went on The View to promote his documentary Michael Moore in Trumpland, which has been described as a “full-throated defense of Hillary Clinton” by Forbes. The film deconstructs presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, as Moore seems to target the Bernie Sanders voters, who are still on the fence about Clinton. The conversation on The View soon turned to Clinton’s faith. While Michael Moore was defending Hillary Clinton to Candace Cameron-Bure, he said that she could have eviscerated Donald Trump in the debates, but “held back” because, “honestly, when she says she’s a Christian, I think she means it and I think she lives it.”
This was the point of contention that lead to Candace Cameron-Bure’s feud with Michael Moore. The filmmaker went on to explain how Clinton is a true Christian, “The people who talk about it, ‘I’m a Christian,’ you know, oftentimes aren’t. The idea of being a Christian is to just behave that way.”
That’s when Cameron-Bure interjected, “Not all of us!”
Moore seemed like he was open to discussion, even though he and Cameron-Bure were coming from different viewpoints. “Just because you and I disagree politically doesn’t mean I can’t respect you,. I see you as a fellow American. That means we’re in the same boat. We’re going to sink or swim together.”
Cameron-Bure replied, “I wish she played up her Christian — I don’t want to say played the Christian card — but I wish she played up her faith, but I understand why she doesn’t.”

Candace Cameron-Bure’s feud delved deeper when Moore defended Clinton’s life as a Christian, in that she doesn’t have to talk about being Christian, she just has to live her life as a Christian. Cameron-Bure went on to say that she doesn’t believe Clinton’s stances make her a real Christian woman. “With some of her positions, I don’t believe she lives it. For those people that really look to the Bible, it’s very difficult.”
Bure is, of course, referring to Mrs. Clinton’s stance on a woman’s right to choose. Clinton argued her pro-choice stance during the last debate with Donald Trump. At the time, Clinton said, “I will defend Planned Parenthood. I will defend Roe v. Wade, and I will defend women’s rights to make their own health care decisions.”
Of course, this isn’t the only time that Candace Cameron-Bure clashed over her religious views. Cameron-Bure and co-host Raven-Symone went head to head last year when an Oregon bakery denied a lesbian couple their services because of their sexual orientation. The conservative co-host argued that she didn’t think this was discrimination but instead “freedom of association.”
When it comes to Hillary Clinton’s faith, do you agree with Michael Moore or Candace Cameron-Bure?
