    "The View": Week of 5/20/2019

    My niece had to borrow her entire four years at a state school. She is $100K in debt. We forgive foreign debt and corporate debt all the time. Loan forgiveness (until we fix the problem -- because the system is broken) would also be a boon to the economy. Suddenly, a bunch of 22 to 32 year olds have that much more disposable income. What irked me about the topic (ABOVE and BEYOND Whoopi's crazy lack of understanding) is that Elizabeth Warren has been a major consumer champion on credit card debt (which was also mentioned in the segment) for at least 15 years, and her plan to fix how we structure the financing of higher ed is one of the cornerstones of her campaign, and not only did none of the co-hosts think of that, none of the producers from the ABC News Division did, either. Instead, we just had to listen to Whoopi Word Salad.

    A friend and I were talking about this, and I do think the producers are somewhat to blame. It's not like they don't review the day's topics before taping. (EDIT: I mean in a different sense than what @deaja mentioned, but yes, that too!) They either should have told the panel not to reveal Game of Thrones spoilers, or they should have told Whoopi to issue a spoiler warning before the topic. I don't really expect a panel of 35 to 75-year-old talk show hosts to know the ins and outs of fannish culture (although Meghan is the one, because of her age and her own pop-culture interests, I would expect to understand it.) Everyone screws up. What's so Meghan about this one is that she then gets mad at everyone else, instead of just saying (and meaning), "I'm sorry." I just -- can you imagine if it had been the other way around, and Sunny had spoiled Meghan? She'd be shrieking about that for the next year.

    Too little too late, Joffrey.

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    I know it wasn't, but I like to imagine that "only daughter" thing as a little shout-out to us. What do you mean by it appears she shut off Twitter? Like -- what are you seeing?

    I think it's hilarious that Meghan spoiled people, and then turned around and got mad at everyone else. You think the woman would be used to making mistakes by now.

    The Chew

    If since he was on GMA Strahan and Sara (ABC) on May 1st, he probably doesn't have any exclusive deal with NBC, unless there's something new I missed. (Very possible.) Generally speaking, if you're not a regular, you do can other stuff. Depending on your role with a show or network, they might have the right of first refusal -- that's if there's any kind of recurring deal at all, and you're not just a guest on a given episode.

    I hate her hair today. And I think her eye makeup looks ridiculous on daytime TV. The makeup artists do the same thing to Sunny, sometimes. It's like they're sending these two women to a nightclub or an awards show, rather than a morning talk show. That said, I agree with everything else you said. I don't know. I mean, nobody is obligated to disclose their personal history on TV or elsewhere, but what kind of impact might that have on Meghan? She clearly idolizes Whoopi. She'd have to integrate that information into her narrow worldview. It might do some good. Was it Amber Tamblyn maybe?

    The Chew

    I'm excited about the new Facebook episode. Thanks for letting us know, @TVFan17 and @jcbrown. Michael was on Today with Hoda & Jenna, this morning. I caught it after the fact, or I would have posted here. (My DVR was tuned to NBC. I caught the last few seconds and was able to rewind the whole segment.) He appeared with Jenna Bush and Savannah Guthrie in a segment called "Today Food." He essentially cooked two "Five in Five" meals, in about four minutes. It was possible, because they already had the components at different stages of cooking. The first meal was Pan Roasted Chicken Thighs with Ramps, Peas and Mushrooms. The second was Spaghetti with Pea Pods and Lemon. I feel like I've seen both on The Chew, before, but it was still nice to see him. When Jenna introduced him, she noted that he owns 17 restaurants around the country. Michael cracked, "You wanna buy a couple?" The Today website has versions of the recipes: https://www.today.com/recipes/chicken-thighs-ramps-peas-mushrooms-recipe-t154128 https://www.today.com/recipes/spaghetti-pea-pods-lemon-recipe-t154134 I was hoping he'd mention something about an upcoming TV project, but he didn't (or I really need more caffeine). I checked, but as of right now, no videos have been posted to the Today site or on its YouTube Channel.

    Dang. I missed this post. I would have watched it. I wonder if it is still online. Off to check.

    Dear Whoopi, Michael Cohen is going to prison for tax EVASION not tax AVERSION. Even pinkos like us could wind up imprisoned, were tax aversion a crime. Love, Genny D

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Yeah, but both SNL and Seth Meyers are on NBC. If that were the case, wouldn't she be on Kimmel? Here's the listing from the NBC PR site: Tuesday, May 7: Guests Meghan McCain and musical guest A R I Z O N A. Phillip "Fish" Fisher sits-in with the 8G Band. Show 0834. OF COURSE she's on when the musical guest is A R I Z O N A

    Meghan McCain: "Both Sides" Wannabe Tough Chick

    Last night, Democratic presidential candidate, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington was the top of the show guest on Real Time with Bill Maher. Inslee's campaign is heavy on combating climate change. He mentioned arguing with Meghan McCain about green initiatives. Bill Maher gets on my nerves, but his succinct dismissal of the Princess of Arizona was perfect. Watch!

    The second time I posted the video, I cued it up to when Whoopi started talking about Joy, so you'd miss that.

    At the top of the show, Whoopi said, "As you notice, we are one down. Joy went home ill, today. So Joy, get better quick and get your behind back here."

    I suspect Joy is actually sick. I thought Meghan had the work blues last week and took off, but since she's been back, her eyes have been glassy, and she still looks like she's fighting off something. I don't think Joy would just refuse to appear on the show, because Meghan's being Meghan.
