"The View": Week of 3/23/2020

Recommended Posts

Also - I don't get the first few minutes of the View; local station gives corona updates then.   Is NutMeg in AZ or NY?   Did she say?    And yellow is supposed to be a warm cheery color.   And the flag should be a positive symbol, right?   Why then do those two things together give off such an icy vibe in her house.   She is such a cold beeyotch.

So, Megaphone is preggers. Don't care.

Nor I. Rumor has it it's human.

For some reason, the whole motherhood thing doesn't seem to fit our little Mags. Serene, glowing, maternal. Nope. I just can't picture it. And if it was a "surprise" - eye roll here - then maybe she should pay more attention to what she's using for contraception cuz it obviously aint working!!!

I really wish the Governor of Maryland and the DC Mayor would vary the time of their press conferences.  I never thought I'd miss The View so much, but, it hasn't been on here all week and a break from the pandemic would be welcome.  I don't mean to minimize what's going on, or, be disrespectful to anyone, but, a little normalcy would go a long way.

I have disagreed with Gov. Cuomo in the past, but I'm grateful for a) his leadership during this pandemic b) his interruption of Newt Gingrich's blather.

This week is shaping up to be a write off as far as watching a complete show goes. Why don't they just go right off the air until things have settled instead of putting out this disjointed mess, which gets interrupted every single day?

So you would think it's okay to talk about children now, but I guess it's too soon.  Meghan didn't even crack a smile after Sara told that story about her two older kids, and showed a clip.  And at the end of the show, when they played the video of the little girl crying, she kind of half-heartedly laughed, but had a look on her face like, "This is what I have to look forward to?"

The average age of a senator as of December 2018 according to senate.gov is 61.8.  Not seventy something like Meghan said.  She loves to spout "facts" to seem smart, but she doesn't care if she's right or not.  

More Meghan wisdom - "it's not that people can't go out and work; it's that they are unable to".  "People dying all over the beds".   

Contrary to what Newt said, just because the numbers are low in a few states doesn't mean those people shouldn't be staying home.  You can't assume those numbers will stay low since you don't know who has the virus until you can test everybody, and quarantine  the people who test positive, and the people they've come in contact with.

For the second day in a row, after Whoopie throws the questioning to Meghan by saying, "Hey, Meghan", Meghan says, "(Whoever), it's Meghan".  She just doesn't think, at all.

The reason some state's numbers are low is because they aren't doing a lot of testing.  In my state they have only tested a little over 1000 people. Only 50 positive but we don't  know how many people those 50 people have interacted with.

And...they aren't testing people until they have symptoms and a doctor's order so they likely have exposed others while they were asymptomatic.

I have - thankfully - never been unemployed, but my understanding is you have to be involuntarily removed from your job in order to be eligible for benefits.  True?  If so, why did no one push back on Newt’s regurgitation of the Republican talking point that people would be quitting their jobs because the unemployment benefit in the stimulus bill might be higher than their salary???  Whoopi was “offended” at what Graham said but why does no one refute these false claims with FACTS?  Oh who am I kidding? ☹️

I couldn't make it through the whole show today, which seemed to be The Meghan McCain Show.    Lord, when that baby gets here, that's all we're gonna hear about.   Was Sunny bragging about her children?  Maybe I'm just cranky from being holed up for weeks, but she was playing on my nerves.   Back in the day when my sons were growing up, I knew too many mothers like that.    Whoopi couldn't find words in her head that she needed; I'm really starting to think there's something wrong there.   Sara, who was booted from her original seat at the table, was the only one who kept me around for as long as I stayed.  Then Nutty started braying again........

Sara H talks about her kids yet I never get annoyed with her.  I think it's cause she doesn't have the know it all mom vibe, plus she's warm.   And she's logical with facts and common sense.  I've missed her.  Meghan, Joy and Sunny are sometimes too into emotion vs fact and Whoopi alternates between the 2.

Sunny is what my co worker would call a 'braggy mom'  she brags about her life, her kids, etc non stop..and sometimes can be judgy (I like when Whoopi bursts her balloon sometimes).

This is true. My daughter’s company (a medical practice) laid everyone off so they could apply for unemployment. They’ve been assured they will all be rehired as soon as is safe.  Newt is an ass.

There is a fine line between bragging about your wonderful life and telling people about your life. And Sunny crosses that line a lot.  She might not even mean to do it but it does sound like she is saying look at me, I have a doctor husband two great kids and blah blah blah.  Sara on the other hand just seems to relay stories about what is happening at her house.  Meredith was the same way.

Normally, this would be true. But I think (and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) that if someone decides to self-isolate for whatever reason (high risk or high risk household member), they are eligible for unemployment, at least for now. I guess Graham et al are afraid people are going to take advantage of the system. Please. Maybe some will but I think that is the least of this country's worries right now.

Take Joy for example. She chose to self-isolate and isn't even really attempting to show up remotely. I know it's probably a bad example because I doubt she'll be filing for unemployment (although Whoopi probably would lol) and will likely continue to be paid. In any case, she can afford to take the time off out of caution for her health. And I don't think anyone can be denied unemployment or get fired, for trying to protect their health. That is the whole purpose of the stay at home orders.

I agree. Such bull she isn't on this show; unless it was her choice for some reason? I really don't give af what Whoopi or Meghan have to say about anything, tbh. And where is Ana if they're not going to allow Joy on anyway? I keep tuning in at the opening to see whose faces are on the screen and then it's back to other things.

Ooh, they both started talking at the same time after Lisa Ling finished answering a question, and Meghan said, "Wait a second, Whoopie".  I think she's bolder because they're not in the same location.

According to Meghan, Lisa Ling's husband, as a doctor, "hasn't seen anything like this in a long time".

Meghan doesn't know what the word "blasphemous" means.  This is the second time recently that she's used it incorrectly.

So everybody else was smiling and cheerful when they were wishing people happy birthday, but Meghan looked pissed off.  Was the make-up artist they mentioned the one she tried to get fired? 

Speaking of make-up, Meghan is not very good at applying her own.  Her blush, especially on one cheek, wasn't blended in, and her eyebrows are giving me visions of Joan Crawford.  I was wondering if her eyebrows had always looked like that, and it was just more obvious in a head-on view, but looking at the promos they showed, no, they aren't normally that heavily penciled in.

I think this is the normal republican one that people don’t want to work, especially those in lower income brackets, and if unemployment is enough they’ll never work again.  The same old welfare queen trope/dog whistle.  It’s not based on any facts or evidence...in fact studies show the exact opposite. For years I ran a free civil legal aid program for low income workers and it was a rarity to have a client who wasn’t working at least one job if not more.  They weren’t sitting around enjoying unemployment or state benefits like the Rs want you to believe.  This kind of talk just really angers me!  And yes, at least here, nurses earn quite a nice salary.

Whoopies looks ok.  I wonder if Whoopie has a team there...she’s obviously being remotely filmed as opposed to MM who I assume is on Skype or something similar.  In all fairness I don’t think anyone looks very good in front of their computer camera but she does look a bit harsh.  Maybe we’ve been blaming the makeup team all this time but it’s really just the way she looks?

A lot of us speculated that Meghan was freaking out about COVID19 because it affects her now, so she was shaming anyone who was treating it lightly and telling them to stay home. Now that we know she's pregnant, and far enough to know the gender, it makes perfect sense why she was so enthusiastically working herself up whenever the topic came up. She probably wants people to stay at home and be diligent so that her hospital appointments are hassle free.

(She's also being affected regardless, but it makes more sense why she's so passionate about it at the moment)

As for Newt, I recommend listening to season two of Slow Burn. It's all about the Clinton impeachment and how Newt went out of his way to go after Bill. Being partisan usually means going with Republicans while they can do whatever they want. That's what Newt wants more of. The fact that he is against giving nurses more money proves that he doesn't even care about people.
