"The View": Week of 3/16/2020

Recommended Posts

"When they write wrap behind your head, should I wrap?" -Dr. OZ

I found it that moment so humorous. For like the first time ever Meghun wasn't paying attention to the monitors, she had her back turned to them while speaking with the Dr OZ.

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.

Yeah, but they didn't need her or Elisabeth last week and yet they both appeared. And there was also that Campos-Duffy woman that cancelled her guest co-hosting appearance. Looks like auditions to me. Personally, my hope is they fire McCain, bring back Elisabeth to fill that seat, and bring Sara back to fill Abby's seat for a panel of Whoopi-Joy-Sara-Sunny-Elisabeth.

No no no.  As much as I despise Meghan I despise Elisabeth more. At least with Meghan at that table it isn't bible study.  And even though I pretty much disagree with Meghan on just about everything politically her answer to everything isn't pray and faith in god like Elisabeth.

I think the makeup artist(s) at The View are just not that good at their job. We've all mentioned Joy's atrocious eye makeup. Every day I notice that Sunny's hands are a totally different shade than her face. We all remember Abby's blood red lipstick. And now, Sara! Come on, she's a natural beauty. 

I agree. There has got to better makeup artists out there. I find this show is more “miss” than “hit” with makeup.

I've mentioned before that the contouring job they do on the bridge of Sunny's nose some days is way too severe.  Contouring 101:  If we can see the contouring stripe running down the middle of her nose, you aren't doing it right.  And if I can see it on my 100 year old dinosaur tv that isn't even high def than they are really, really doing it wrong!

Look at what they used to do to Abby, slapping on bright neon lipstick and gooey lip gloss., so much so that it was downright distracting! You would look at her and only see a pair of full, greasy, shiny lips. 

I tried to look away....but I couldn't.

And don't get me started but what the hell is up with Mags' hair extensions these days? Is the lighting so bad in the make up room that no one has clued in that they don't match the colour of the hair on her head?!!!!

At least Dr. Oz was somebody before he was on Oprah's show.  I remember seeing him on tv talking about his specialty, cardiology, years before that.  Didn't Dr.Phil become a part of Oprah's circle during the trial where the beef industry sued her? 

It looks like the show might be interrupted again today.  The White House has again picked that hour to have it's daily press conference.  If that's going to be the new schedule, the show might as well take a break (which they probably should do anyway) if half the country can't watch live.  

Added - Thankfully, the press conference started late.

He did but recently his credentials have fallen somewhat under suspicion. There's even talk that he's not even a real doctor.......<GASP>. When his show first started, it was watchable and he seemed to continue on his Oprah path but then it radically changed and now it more resembles Jerry Springer or Maury Povitch with guests that were recruited straight out of a trailer park and now all he deals in are asshole out-of-control teens, sons or daughters who live in their car or just freeload off the parents and victims of catfishing. Real intellectual fare!

Good, Whoopi Skyping from home.

I’ve read about the Chinese authorities blaming the US military, but Trump’s comment was still childish. Meg has no problem with slurring a whole ethnicity though, saying it’s a luxury to argue verbiage.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the make up people have been sent home and the ladies are doing their own as a social distancing measure.

Whoopi isn't any more effective at stringing words together that make sense from home than she is in the studio.   It's awkward and painful to listen to.
Meghan is trying to wrestle control of the panel without WG actually being there in person to put a stop to her.   She's staging a coup!   She wouldn't even shut up when Whoopi was talking in her earpiece.

Your on a damn talk show Meghan.  That’s what your there to do is talk.  She argues that they are sitting around talking while people are actually dying?  (I think that’s what she was trying to say). And I’m barely paying attention, but how did this become about the left?  I swear, this is the first episode I’ve watched in weeks, and it will probably be the last for awhile.

Goodness.  I didn't think the talking over everyone else could be any worse, but, damn, Meghan, could you please shut up when someone else is talking. I don't understand why the powers that be can't just turn off her mike when she does this or tell her to do it.

Are we to believe that Whoopie had no symptoms but scheduled an appointment to see her doc to check her out? The last place I want to be if I am feeling ok is around people who are feeling sick. Of course, I guess being a big star, she doesn't sit in the waiting room with the rest of the world.

Does Meghan think Klobuchar would know she's Biden's vp pick, like he's offered it to her already?  And why mention that she has this question on her blue card, and that she's not going to ask it?  Just don't ask the question.  She thinks we all need to know every single thought that crosses her mind.

It's one thing to have Whoopie there by satellite, but she shouldn't be moderator if she's going to have an even harder time than usual (for a better reason, though) knowing what's going on.

I think Dan Abrams was the first one to mention "the left" when he was talking about them criticizing the language the president was using to characterize the virus - "Chinese". "Wuhan".  Pointing out when a politician does something wrong is supposedly only for political reasons so it therefore shouldn't be done in these particular circumstances?  That language started being used only after the situation became more serious here. 

Lol - Meghan looked like some kind of bird with the way her head was moving when that phone rang.  You would think she'd never heard one before.

I almost would've liked to have seen Sunny moderating, just to see McCain pissy that she has lower seniority than even Sunny, but this show is unwatchable on a normal day without Joy and I am no fan of Dr. Oz either.

 

Please please no Elizabeth!!!!!  I will definitely stop watching and stop recording if she's on.  She's basically a parrot for everything that's said on Fox.  I'm not even sure that she thinks about things and makes up her own mind.  Also the religion thing drives me crazy--and she can't seem to not talk about it and be super preachy.

To be fair I think she said fans were asking about political movies that she could recommend.  

 

And speaking of Miss McCain, she says she doesn't agree with cancel culture then she states she'll never support Vanessa Hudgens ever again about the statement Vanessa made.  Meghan seems like the most unforgiving person ever.  And this is over a statement.  I remember when Megan was freaking out to Whoopi over some criminal being forgiven for some heinous crime, getting out of jail or something like that.  It's like it's her way or no way.  I guess this is what a bad ass bitch does.  When will her reign end on this how?

I  know you are being facetious but that is exactly how Meghan sees herself. When in reality she is nothing more than a spoiled child who acts out when she doesn't get her way.  When she says she hates cancel culture what she means is she hates when people cancel her when she does something offensive.

I haven’t watched today’s episode yet...

For me cancel culture isn’t a bad thing if the actions of someone are that deplorable. There are individuals out there who’ve gotten away with horrific behavior far too long before getting “canceled.” I don’t think someone’s career should be over simply for rumors that could very well be untrue, ignorance, a bad joke, or making a mistake that didn’t cause serious harm.

I think most of us want truly awful people off our screens and such.

I really don't have an opinion of cancel culture.  For me it falls into the "So what, who cares?" department.  But when one espouses a view against cancel culture, and then gets into a twitter feud with QE's Bobby Berk, which ends with her literally saying "but clearly I won't be changing your mind. I also guess I won't be watching queer eye anymore. 😞 Have a nice day.", I feel very comfortable calling that person a hypocrite.

Different strokes. I could take Elisabeth any day over McCain. And reading all these comments about how today must've been another episode where McCain screamed over everyone nonstop and tried to usurp control of the show just reinforces my opinion. I would prefer a show without either one, but clearly that will never happen. A show with both is probably more likely.
