Is it my imagination, or are Meghan's extensions a different color than her hair?

Also, I missed the first segment.  Did Whoopi explain the hat? Her Bernie impression is even worse than Valley Girl Voice. 

Mr Peanut must have left it to her.

Very prescient of Joy to mention Trump's heavy breathing and contacts with people who've been exposed to coronavirus. At least one Brazilian official Trump dined with at Mar A Lago last weekend tested positive. It's time, really past time, to #TestTrump.

They can't.  We don't have any test kits.

He is always a heavy breather.

Also if Bernie can't win the competitive states like Michigan and Missouri during the primaries how would he win  them in November?

I would assume they're figuring that people will 'vote blue no matter who' when it comes to november.

Meg is “really good” at giving “bomb ass” speeches. Yet another item on her resumé. 

And then she demonstrated for us, and it just her usual lunging forward and shrieking that she does on The View.  That is what she calls a bomb ass speech.

Apparently Joy is taking a break from the show due to concerns about Coronavirus at the urging of her daughter, according to this article.

I would think Whoopi would be at greater risk with her recent health crisis.  But I don't blame Joy for staying home.

I wanted to say something nice about MeAgain.  The outfit she had on today was very flattering, and it proves she doesn't have to look as bad as she does on  99% of the shows.  I have to assume the stylist who hates her is now on vacay or staying away due to the coronavirus.

Of course her personality is still odious.

I don't blame Joy either. And I agree Whoopi should also consider it given her health issues in the past year.

As for the past discussion of Elizabeth vs. Meghan, I cringe to admit I would pick Meghan. It's funny, because I didn't like Jed, then I liked Meghan even less, but Bitsy...less than those two combined!

yeah, I really disliked Jed, but I would welcome her back over these 2 in a minute!

Why not Whoopi? Aside from being pretty old, she was in the hospital with a lung-related illness just a year ago. But maybe it's because Whoopi already took a lot of time off to film The Stand as it is.

Either way, I'm taking this as God wanting me to have a break from this shitshow. I'd like to think Joy is taking off because McCain's about to get the ax and she doesn't want to have to deal with her when she gets the news. I believe Elisabeth was fired around this time of the year back when, too, wasn't she? And, speaking of Elisabeth, perhaps the other day was a test run and they offered Elisabeth Meghan's seat again, and she said yes this time. That might explain why McCain has been on good behavior this week, too, if she feels her job is threatened...

Someone needs to tell Meghan that pounding your hand on the table, lowering your head, blinking your eyes and yelling at the top of your lungs does not make someone a 'bombass' speech deliverer. 

By far. 

Sad to see Joy will be taking at least a week off. I'm curious if WG will follow suit, since she has the compromised health issues and is in her 60s?

I don't blame Joy at all for taking precautions. Will miss her.

 

Especially since I think there will be few guests willing to come on in the near future.

Yeah I agree with everyone who mentioned Whoopi. I’d be the most worried if I were her, especially after her most recent health scare. I guess Joy’s daughter convinced her that it wasn’t worth taking any chances and I don’t blame her for taking what looks like an indefinite hiatus from the show. I mostly only watch because Joy’s on the show, but since I haven’t really been tuning in lately, I’m not sure I’ll be doing anything other than reading the comments here until further notice...

Duh, Whoopi, obviously the person on the plane probably got tested before traveling. They may have been told to quarantine but didn't listen. I'm not familiar with the story she was telling.

So they recorded tomorrow's show today. Good for Joy for staying home, she is able to.

I don't think Whoopi's business partner was tested in Italy.

Nor the US.

Or was this the other person that landed in Palm whatever? I didn't understand that discussion.

With no audience and down one host, I wonder how many guests The View will have in the future. I wonder if most of their shows will be Hot Topics instead of interviews.

Yeah I wonder if they’re going to fill that third seat or march on with just 2 co-hosts and Whoopi as moderator for a week. I wouldn’t be surprised if they decide to air repeats next week though...

A couple of the late night shows are going on hiatus now, so the View will probably follow suit.

She has been different this week. I loved when she invoked Elisabeth Hasselbeck's name when they were talking about Trump's devout followers who think he is doing a good job. When EH was there spouting her gibberish even Meghan was looking at her like WTF is wrong with you.  And she complimented Governor Cuomo (a Democrat!!!!!) for handling the cornonavirus outbreak well.  Now of course once this crisis is over she will go back to being her usual obnoxious self but right now she is annoying me a lot less than she normally does.

Many shows are going on 'hiatus' for a while - including Wendy WIlliams. I can understand why  (aside from the obvious, of course) - March /April is not a 'ratings sweep' period, so they're not concerned. Nice time for them to take a break, return the end of April and start May sweeps. (JMO)

Shouldn't Whoopi take a break too? She's more at risk than Joy, especially with her more recent health scare.

It does seem like the View will continue on during this crisis, which makes me think that they may have wanted a hiatus but Adam Glassman was like "And miss out on all of Oprah's favourite things?" And everyone decided to continue on because View your Deals are the heart and soul of the VIew.

It's frustrating when Whoopi says something to the affect of "This is an important conversation, so let's continue it when we come back." Only for her to talk about completely different.

I feel the same as Whoopi, as far as feeling like Biden should pick Hillary if he’s going to pick a woman, but deep down knowing it won’t happen. I agree with Sunny, the Hulu documentary is so good. But I like all the other women they brought up, too: Harris, Demings, Abrams.

I’ve thought about what McCain said about Trump replacing Pence with Haley in that case, and I can believe that would happen…

They might as well. Without Joy, they're down to three people and we know McCain won't allow Ana to be there. Just cancel it until Joy can come back, I say.

Guys, I have those mugs on VYD, and can't recommend them enough.  I use them all the time, mainly for soup, which is what I got them for.  They're porcelain, but feel more weighty, like stoneware.  I love them so much, I've thought about contacting the company and asking them to do more colors,  or make some with the reverse of these colors (the colors don't look as bright as they did on tv; the photograph online is accurate.

I got these year last around Christmas from Amazon, when they have Oprah's Favorite Things.  The day they were out for delivery, they were on VYD!  I couldn't believe it.  But I figured out that I would have only saved $15, not $25, if I had returned my Amazon order, and it wasn't worth the hassle.  The VYD price really is a great price for these.

I believe Joy's son-in-law is a Physician's Assistant in NYC and is working on the front lines in this pandemic.  Because of this, I think Joy's daughter's fear for her mother and husband is understandable.  Her husband is a healthcare professional and needs to be there to help his patients.  On the other hand, she does not want her mother risking her health for a talk show.  Joy is doing the right thing for herself and her daughter.

I would love it to be Hillary but she is too polarizing for some people.

With Trump it's different. He's considerably overweight, when someone's that heavy they can run out of breath before even finishing a long sentence. With Bernie, he's just so damn worked up all of the time, IMO, but I never noticed him breathing heavily.

She made a great Sec of State, i didnt think her polarizing then.  I have learned alot about her in these last couple years.  VP needs to be strong , ready to take office if need be.  Could she do it? Absolutely. Would people 'let' her?  Course not.  But she could hold her own i bet with any foreign leader.  Even the jerk ones lol.  They wouldnt though.  I bet she would be degraded at every moment.  Cant win.  Evah.
