Former Utah GOP Rep. Mia Love has made her debut on “The View,” and she’s already drawing praise from the show’s fans.

Love — a former congresswoman turned CNN commentator — has appeared on the show throughout the beginning on September. She has already been involved in heavy political conversations on the daytime talk show, including discussions around abortion because of the new Texas abortion law, and she has spoken about the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccine deniers.

According to Decider, Love has presented a calm demeanor on the show, even as she talked about vaccine deniers.

“It’s a slippery slope,” she said on the show, according to Decider. “Do we say that to people who have been smoking and they’ve got emphysema? And do we really want people who are not vaccinated that are sick out there in the public not treated?”

Of course, co-host Joy Behar confronted Love about her opinions, presenting opposite sides of the argument.

“I think you have a good point about it,” Behar said. “But (smoking)’s a long-term habit that somebody’s gotten into. This is a decision that somebody makes based on false information. I say, if you have a case, go to Tucker Carlson and make your case. Because he’s telling you lies.”

Still, social media has been lit up with discussion about Love. Fans have suggested that they’ve enjoyed the show thus far with Love in the role.

Love is one of several new guest hosts who will fill in for former host Meghan McCain, who has often been the show’s conservative voice, according to the Deseret News. The rotating lists of hosts includes national security adviser Condoleezza Rice, 2016 GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and former Trump administration official Alyssa Farah.
