I saw that video live on Instagram, and she appeared to be high as a kite on something. Just awful.

Why must every thought be expressed on social media, people need to learn to keep things to themselves, especially if you are a celebrity. If I was a celebrity, I would use social media to promote my projects and have limited interactions with my fans under the watchful eye of my management team and agents..

Well..I guess it's because social media is the thing now. In the old days you would drunk call someone maybe (or go pee on their lawn, or something..I don't know.)

Ps still no excuse for that video she did.

I was intrigued with the Jarvis segment where she was warning everyone about a possible recession on the horizon, and how hard it's going to be financially for average Americans who are trying to make ends meet, but have jobs which have been cut due to closures. 

I just wish she would have ended it with:

"So next time this show is trying to sell you 'Oprah's favorite bubble bath' half off the regular price  for the incredible price of $99,  and her favorite spa robe at just $200 regular $600, don't fall for this shit! Just keep that $300 in a savings account and don't spend it on this Garage Sale crap! Oprah's robe and bath bubbles won't pay your bills for you! "

Of course Meghun doesn't care about the racism/xenophobia. Of course she doesn't view herself as a racist. She has said that one to the worst things to call her is a racist. Well guess what Meghun you're a DOT DOT DOT

The smirk on her face when she told Whoopi that trumps messaging was effective was so gross.

“No one’s yelling,” Goldberg replied. "I’m just trying to make sure you can hear me. I’m simply saying it’s the same thing as saying Mexicans and rapists are coming here to get Americans.”

And you know that that was,” McCain shot back.”It’s effective.

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.

No, I think that was tongue in cheek by @Blissfool.  Sara was suggesting that people buy gift cards for restaurants to ensure they are getting revenue, and then you can use them later when restaurants are re-opened.

Not just restaurants, but small local businesses in general, wasn't it?  

Not to beat this to death, but I see it was mentioned again on today's show.  Yes, it's a lovely gesture, but I hope they spare us the complaints and the "Who's crying now?" when these businesses go belly-up and their benevolent dollars are lost.  You know it's coming.

"WAAAAAA - I spent $200 on these cards and now they're no good.  They left me high and dry."  There's not a restauranteur or small business owner who's strapped to the max who will say "I CAN'T go out of business...Sara bought all these gift cards and she'll be disappointed."  Not gonna' happen.

Patronize them while they're open.  Even buy some extra To Go meals and pop them in the freezer for future use.,  Win-Win.

Yeah, that was weird.  How was it the "left" that had concerns?  I think that is what Whoopi was trying to get at, as well.  And did MeAgain actually say "PC" when she was referring to the "left" citing concerns about racism?  At the same time as she lauded her own self for calling out racism on twitter?  WTAF???

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.

Yep. I’ve heard stories of horrible things being said/done to American Asians because of this. I’m only half Asian so I’m not outwardly perceived as being non-white but my father is all Asian and I worry about him in his town where he is one of the only Asians. Asians are one of the minorities where it still seems to be ok to scapegoat and stereotype. 

I wonder if trump said it was the “elderly virus” if MM would’ve started screaming AGEISM since that seems to be the one group she is so protective of for some reason.

OK, I'll explain what REALLY happened here...

This is when Jarvis did indeed say, "Stop pushing that Oprah shit on your show because your viewers should put that $85 towards their  mortgage or rent instead of Oprah's favorite beeswax candle". 

Meghan snapped her head to producer Brian, to see if he was going to shut Jarvis up,  because Meghan knows 'View Your Deal' pays the salaries around there, with all the kickbacks they get from each product sold. And no way is Meghan going to throw a tantrum every day on the show without getting paid!

Exactly! Even in my city there's a push to buy 'gift cards' now from small restaurants, and use them later. I disagree, because chances are the restaurant won't be around 'later' - many of them close abruptly when the economy is great, as the industry itself is tough and very competitive. Not going to take that chance. If anything, I will be buying take-out from them as often as possible.

Or if he said it's the 'military virus' since some Asians are trying to blame our military. Meghan's head would be spinning around like Linda Blair's in 'The Exorcist'.

This is a quote from Susan Sontag about why it diseases shouldn't be said to be caused by someone.

Another reason may have to do with the tendency of people in Western societies to seek meaning in diseased states.[8] This phenomenon was recognized by Susan Sontag as a form of punishment, and in her book Illness as Metaphor, she wrote: "Nothing is more punitive than to give a disease a meaning".[9]

For Meghan to think it's no big deal COVID 19 is being called the Chinese virus and to think Trump referring to Mexican immigrants as racists was an effective message shows her true character. As if we didn't already know.  She needs to remember that back in the 80's when AIDS first became an outbreak it was referred to as GRID (Gay related immune deficiency) and how that caused gay men to be demonized and ostracized.

ITA! I think the gift card thing is stupid. Tired of being cooped up at home and cooking every day? Order some carry-out meals from your local restaurants that are struggling now but still staying open to bring in some revenue and keep employees working. And tip generously if you can! Also don't forget the Chinese restaurants which I expect are suffering the most now.

Now we see her as some very vapid, very ill-informed bimbo. I think she was some D-Lister on a long since cancelled reality show but I also know her from her classy nude modelling days that were all over the Internet and no, they were anything but "tasteful". These were gross, skanky porno shots and let me tell you.....she obviously didn't believe in waxing....THAT!

This show is more of a train wreck than it was before!  You've got the three of them sitting at the giant table.  Whoopi at home first with something on her head, then nothing on her head.  Time lags due to Whoopi being there remotely.  MeAgain simply not understanding that talking over people when someone is remote does not help the situation.  MeAgain being very pissy toward Sunny.

She's an actress from High School Musical and she didn't do nude modeling, someone leaked her private nude photos. There's nothing wrong with having pubic hair--I imagine the majority of women do, both now and in 2007, when the photos leaked. Her comments about the coronavirus were incredibly stupid, but there's no need to traffic in misogyny to criticize her when there's plenty to criticize that doesn't involve her body or her sexuality.

It'd be important to note that she was on the Disney payroll for quite sometime, starring in each of the High School Musical installments.

More recently she starred in the made-for-tv Grease Live as Rizzo. Her dad died the day before the live taping and much ado was made on whether she'd be able to perform. 

She was also on Rent Live.

I think Whoopie is making sure nobody moderates better than her. I don't think she has a problem with Joy doing it because Joy's refusal of being a moderator got her the job after Rosie left.

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.

I do believe it. She nearly died of pneumonia and sepsis last year. Aside from her age, she's a particular risk because of her history. She probably got a house call.

Would 64-year-old random woman (black or white or otherwise) be ABLE to see their doctor right now (without money or influence of some sort)?  Probably not, but what doctor would want to be the person who refused to see Famous Patient who almost died last year?

First of all, the idea of no studio audience makes the studio much quieter, of course. Which means, when Warren was on, I heard Whoopi whispering something about 'not the right time' for something - whether she was talking to someone in the room with her, or someone in the studio - I don't know, but it came through loud and clear to me. Same with the host who took a deep sigh when Meghan was talking on-camera. Someone took a deep sigh off-camera (Sunny? Sara? Whoopi?) which just showed me they had zero interest in what McCain had to say (can't blame them). This has happened before, too.

Second - who in God's name did Sara piss off in the make-up room this week,  that they are playing this horrible trick on her? Let's face it - she looked like she was dipped in wax today, before she took her seat. her face was pale and shiny - what is going on ??? And the hairdresser decided to join the make-up artist and give her that awful hair style (if you want to call it that). Sorry Sara - someone doesn't like you there.

TPTB should have MM Skype from home so they can turn off her mike when it is not her turn to talk.  Too bad we didn't get a reaction shot of Sunny when MM mentioned Bethanny Frankel.

I don't know if home sewn masks are okay to substitute for the "everyday" masks health care workers might use (is there even a shortage of those?) but they wouldn't help at all in stopping the spread of coronavirus.  There's a special kind of mask needed for that.

Meghan had it wrong about the "floating hospitals".  Those will be used for for the sick people with other ailments, not coronavirus patients.

What Meghan was doing with her hands when she was first talking to Elizabeth Warren looked so odd.  Maybe that's why she's always holding a pen - so she won't do that.  She must've forgotten to bring it out with her. 

Oh, next segment, there it is - she got her pen back.  Now I really do think she might hold a pen so she doesn't fidget with her hands.  

And for the second day in a row she has to make an announcement about the question that she's not going to ask!!!  

Whoopie - "We as adults told young people they weren't at risk"?  "All the adults were wrong"?  I never heard anybody put it that way.  They've always said that senior citizens were most at risk of serious illness or dying, but no one ever said they were the only ones. 

The experts have always said that young children seem to be the least susceptible, but if you're old enough to go away for spring break, you're old enough to figure out that they're not talking about you.  Anyway, so many in that age group have a tendency to think they're invincible, no matter what.

Remember Rosie left after that fight with Bitsy. Barbara stepped in for a while in her place and she had asked Joy to become the moderator and she had refused the offer and it was later offered to Whoopie down the line.  Whoopie has always said that Joy is part of the reason that she got the job..

I always felt that Joy had refused because of Meredith Vieira. They were super close and I think a part of Joy did not want to take her friend's place..Meredith's departed really devastated Joy. Joy was the happiest when Meredith reunited with her Starr and Debbie in 2016 for that show. I have never seen Joy smile so brightly in my life..
