  1. Meghan out here being like: "Won't someone think of the rich old people!"
  2. Yes, because clearly people like Jeremy Lin are clearly just part of the PC mafia! What would someone like Jeremy Lin know about racism? To be clear, I am being sarcastic. This isn't just the "PC" or the "Left", it's actual Asian people who have already dealt with this racist BS and now see it being said by the President. For Meghan to fail to see this shows that she clearly needs to expand her circle of friends.
  3. From The Daily Beast Really? She actually SAID this? Meghan's the type of person that requires being affected personally by an issue to care about it (See: LGBT rights, COVID19, etc.) However, I didn't know her capacity for empathy was so limited that she can't understand why the President dog-whistling to racists is A BAD THING. Many people already experience racism and bullying in America on a regular basis, and it's only gotten worse lately with the disgusting discourse coming from the White House.
  4. Given the choice between "Dr. Phil" and Dr. Oz to give COVID19 advice on The View, Dr. Oz is leagues ahead the better choice. At least he's an actual doctor. I liked today's episode. I'm glad they're prioritizing the hosts health by having them stay six feet apart. At the end of the day, their health is more important than keeping up appearances just for the audience at home. I'm sure eventually they will not be able to gather anymore as it gets worse, but I imagine it is giving people a sense of normalcy while in quarantine to see The View everyday. I thought what Dr. Oz said about politicians having to balance both medical opinion and public opinion was very interesting, that unless you can sway public opinion, government actions will likely not be effective. It's just sad that more people will likely die just because of other people's false perceptions.
  5. I've heard Jed has gotten WAY crazier than Meghan AND Elizabeth, and that she's a complete mess on Twitter (according to the Deja The View podcast). Hard to admit, but out of the three Meghan is probably the best.
  6. Now what does that statement remind me of? I feel like someone very famous sometime ago said something very similar...
  7. This whole thread about Sunny being homophobic or not has been headspinning. At this point, I'm probably going to guess that Sunny is your typical liberal Gen Xer. In general, they're respectful of gay people, but when they were young in the 80s, they probably believed some ignorant stuff about them, and maybe they are still working on deconstructing some of those toxic beliefs. Nothing too shocking about that.
  8. I generally agree with your comments about her going on twitter since I think she generally does not engage healthfully with it, but as someone who has lost both a brother and a father, the grieving process for me lasted longer than a year. Although everyone is different, I met many people who had also lost a family member and the process was much longer than a year for them. I even knew some who said they never really felt "normal" again until after 5 years. There are numerous reasons to critique her, but how she expresses grief is not one of them I think.
  9. I kinda understand what Meghan was trying to say, but the point she actually made was pretty ridiculous. Like none of the hosts seem to understand how Twitter or online fandom culture in general works, so seeing them argue about it is incredibly frustrating.
  10. Seems like more people are starting to feel the same way I've been feeling for awhile: that this primary is bringing out the worst in the cohosts. I hope they can get back to what they do best: discussing real issues and presenting a variety of views with a lively and entertaining debate. Right now, all the hosts seem to be, for a lack of a better term, overwhelmed by the ever-changing dynamics of this election. The general lack of familiarity with some of the most important factors shaping this election, such as social media and technology, is glaringly obvious, especially when discussing topics such as online harassment and misinformation campaigns. As a result, the political "predictions" are becoming less and less insightful and more outlandish.
  11. Today's show was okay. I'm looking forward to the primary elections being over, them discussing the candidates have become less and less interesting to me. LOVED Joy today. Loved what she said about cancel culture, that was hilarious to me. And I'm glad she mentioned Parasite and the need for more people to accept subtitles.
  12. This is hilarious because whenever they talk about reality shows on the view, Whoopi makes it very clear how stupid she thinks they are. I'm sure she was very professional on set, but on the inside...LOL.
  13. Sizes are so messed up, like can someone standardize them already?
  14. I love Sunny, and I do think Kamala was unfairly treated in many ways, but on this topic I really disagree with her. The reasons are too off-topic, but it came off to me like whataboutism. If she didn't like Amy's record, just say that. I don't think the comparison to Kamala was needed.
