"The View": Week of 4/6/2020

Recommended Posts

Just when Meghan becomes somewhat tolerable, she starts her question this morning by reminding us all that she’s a conservative, her husband runs a conservative paper, and that Karl is not a hack because conservatives trust him. 🙄🙄🙄 Why would he even care about any of that shit? Just ask the damn question.

Just where do you get glasses THAT big? Are they custom made like her bras? 

I have never seen frames that big in any optical store. There are glasses like Anderson Cooper wears which are fine. But those monstrosities that Meghan has are wrong.

I wonder if they are just fake lenses and not correcting her eyesight.

Oh, shit.  I hate that Meghan and I had the same thought.

And Meghan shouldn't take from this the idea that she and Lady Gaga are in any other way comparable.  Gaga is more articulate, talented, and compassionate on her worst day than Meghan will ever be.

Hah! Yup annoys the piss outta me too 🤪

I love seeing “third rate” Jon Karl’s Emmys lined up behind him. 

The president also told him right after that, "You'll never make it".

I'm glad they had him on.  I was sure after seeing the press conference that the show would talk about it, but thought he might've been on too recently to have back.

Of course Meghan had to spend the first half of her question talking about both herself and her husband, just to make sure everyone is aware of where they stand.

"Existential" two days in a row.  Do you suppose she has a book of philosophy on her nightstand now?

And she managed to get a “my father” onto the show too.

Probably the reason with everyone's issue with the view.
"Confidence is super high...actual knowledge is low."

I wonder why this is trending again--it happened several weeks ago, didn't it? It was all over Twitter, too, with a bunch of people saying people with doctorates shouldn't call themselves doctor, like Jill Biden apparently does. I'm defending my dissertation very soon and BELIEVE YOU ME I will use my title whenever it's appropriate. I earned it!

 Whoopie might've unknowingly added a spice she didn't mean to use.  My mother did that when she was about Whoopie's age.  She added something to creamed spinach one holiday and it was inedible.

No, Whoopie!  There she goes playing expert again, less than an hour after discussing people who who claim to be experts.  Joy's right.  Unless it's a person you're living with, you shouldn't get that close to someone.  The virus isn't coming through your fingers.  Gloves can also get the virus on them.

Did anybody catch whose grandmother died?  The closed captioner skipped that.

Whoopi is the only one with a crew. I keep wondering if it's family/business partner that are doing it or if actual crew from the show are staying with her.

I still think it's family myself. She comes across much more comfortable, more likely to listen to whoever's directing her, than she ever does in studio, so I don't think it's a View employee.

I enjoyed today's show, too. Really sad another person Joy knows has passed. That's three now (including the View stylist whose memory she shared with several of the other co-hosts). :(  I thought McCain's nodding when Joy was talking during one of the topics about being stuck with this kind of a leader in a crisis like this one and how terrifying it is was surprisingly genuine. It's hard to truly know what is genuine when it comes to Meghan McCain though, so much of what she says and does is a pretense.

I also had the thought, when Meghan said, "I miss you terribly, Joy" that she truly meant it.

Joy mentioned that a friend of hers, a comedian in his 50s or 60s, died of a pulmonary embolism.  I didn't recognize his name (which I don't remember).  I don't think he was well-known nationally.

They aren't saying Jill Biden shouldn't call herself doctor, or she has a Phd.  No one is knocking her field of education.  They are saying that she isn't qualified to be a surgeon general, since her field has nothing to do with medicine.

There are actually some people who are saying she shouldn’t be allowed to call herself a Doctor though...

I know they've been mentioning the controversy over churches wanting to hold Easter masses this weekend, but why are they ignoring the other news right out of NYC - that of Hasidic Jews continuing to hold funerals for the past few weeks, gathering in crowds? I'm reading about it in the media and social media - but no mention from these women ?? It's happening right in their city.

Only caught a bit today. But a quintessential moment. Whoopi talks about holding each other by the arm or hand and walking through this together. Lovely. Joy goes for the joke, chiming in about not touching each other. Cute. WTLF?Megan dumbshit'splains to Joy that it was a metaphor. Oy.

Navy Captain Cozier was not “fired” from the Navy. He was relieved of his Command. Big difference. He remains in the Navy and remains a Captain. 
I’m surprised MM was not able to explain this for the audience. She was conceived in the Military.

I, too, do not understand Megan's 'look"....the turban & huge glasses make me think its a "beatnik" or "Hipster" look...or maybe its easier than trying to style her hair extensions...or maybe she thinks this is a new Maternity look.  On the other hand, Joy's remote feed always seems so poor quality compared to the other ladies. And Joy kept breathing deep sighs, I think she is just Over everything...she is just disgusted by the whole situation we are all in.

Meghan, in those glasses looks like a little girl dressing up and wearing her daddy's glasses.  they're just too big for her face, like going to the optician and asking for the biggest glasses frames they have.

MeAgain also said this whole Navy Commander controversy cut close to home for her because "my father" was buried at the Naval cemetery (sorry, don't know the actual term).

She also used the word "wrapped" incorrectly, but I cannot remember the sentence and def don't want to watch it again.

Since Jonathon Karl flogged his book on last week's show (was it last week? It's a blur), I bought it and started reading it last night. He and Trump go back to 1994. It makes it very silly to hear "you'll never make it" from someone who you've been interviewing for 26 years.

Couldn't Nutty wait until the break to guzzle her soft drink, or whatever that was.

I like Whoopi's jacket/sweater, although it looks all crooked on her.  

Now I can't watch Kamala Harris using her hands to talk without picture Maya Rudolph's caricature.  

MM looks like a giant bug in those huge glasses.

Apparently Megun thinks the glasses make her look intelligent, like Sherman from Mr. Peabody and Sherman.     She’s  also very stern when  wearing them.  What an idiot.

Due to Mags now being stuck at home and bored, her constant and excessive petting of said hair extensions have caused them to escape one night in what was a very well executed plan worthy of a military operation along the lines of the D Day Invasion.

They were last seen travelling under an assumed identity, heading south.

I remember that.  That's when I learned the correct pronunciation.  If we can remember, why can't WG?  (Oh god, she just said "We'll come back when we come back", when going to break.   And again said, KaMAla.)

 

I think it might have been The View where Mayor Pete explained how to say his name, too:  Boot Edge Edge.    -    This should be good, watching Whoopi mangle that.

Have I mentioned how inept Whoopi is as a Moderator &, frankly, a normal, functioning adult.

I missed the first five minutes ... was there any mention of Trump being associated with the outfit that manufacturers the drug he's been touting.  (Jimmy Kimmel mentioned it last night!)

Me too.  It is a name that does have a few possibilities, but once she's explained to you how to pronounced it, there's no excuse.

Oh, I think she said it right when they came back from break.  By chance, or did somebody let her know she was saying it wrong?

Added - Ladyrain, you're right.  I rewound, and while Whoopie got the accent on the right syllable this time, there's still a little more work to do.
