"The View": Week of 1/25/2021

Recommended Posts

Whoopi's face after Sunny read congresswoman QAnon's legal note was funny. She was stunned.

giphy.gif

I also did it with text included of her saying "oh...ok" but the gif kept coming out glitchy.

Digesting today's show, which I watched on my DVR:

1. I celebrated two birthdays during MeAgain's rant in the opening Hot Topic about coal and clean energy.

2. Whoopi still can't pronounce Q-Anon. She insists on calling it Kwan-in.

3. Between MeAgain, Wendy Williams and Bevy Smith on our TVs this week, one can only guess Greta Monahan has a special 'Feel Good Friday View Your Deal' for XXL big-breasted women. Between Wendy and Bevy, this show should have gotten a stern 'MA' rating on this week's episodes - 'for mature audiences only'.

4. Sara Haines and her little pink top with little lace collar was brought to us today by Hallmark Cards.

Nicolle WHO?   Just kidding (and I don't like when people write/say "just kidding)...  I've read that Nicolle is still a bit sad that she was let go...but just LOOK where she landed!  She's a Top Dog now.  Meghan couldn't handle that job.

Yeah Nicole has two straight hours on MSNBC M-F. With the way Meghan's been speaking lately (rapidly spoken rants without any pauses), she'd probably lose her voice doing a show like Nicole's.

Loved after MM whined about Biden's executive orders in the first week Sunny swooped in and gave the numbers of EO's for 2 term presidents starting with Clinton  forward and 1 term Trump had the most.

MeAgain doesn't want the country to create new clean jobs to help both the economy and the climate, because....John Kerry has a private jet.

MeAgain doesn't believe in solar energy which she herself said has been around for decades because Bill Maher can't get solar panels installed?

This is why I find her much less effective than Ana as a conservative pundit. Ana produces counterpoints, Meghan says these things that seem to come from nowhere.

Hearing the trust fund baby of a trust fund baby calling someone elitist is laughable.  Coincidentally, my tv somehow landed on Fox “News”.  While I almost sprained my wrist in the effort to change the channel, I was entertained by a smirking blonde ranting about elitist John Kerry telling the poor to “suck it up” and flying around in his private jet.  Meghan doesn’t have a single original thought rattling around in that head. 
 

I’m glad they finally covered that raving lunatic from Georgia.  I recently saw the footage of her stalking and yelling at David Hogg, traumatized survivor of a school shooting, making sure he knew she was currently carrying. She proudly had this recorded so the world could see her harassing a teenager and calling him a coward.   

Meghan doesn’t approve of Greene being removed.  She doesn’t approve of Cruz, rabble rouser to the insurrectionists, being removed.  What crime does she deem worthy of removal?

I know someone who got in on the GameStop thing and made a bunch of money. Then he got nervous and backed away.

I can hear Meg scoff each time someone calls Cruz out.

And we're off to the races within the first five minutes of the show ! MeAgain is certainly a delight. (Though she did make the most sense).

In a wise move, they gave Sara a soft-ball question about 'what's happening in the Republican Party ?' instead of going back to the GameStop / stock market topic, probably knowing she'd be a completely out of her league trying to answer that.

Meg repeating the phrase "average Americans" is a big fat dog whistle. I highly doubt the "average Americans" that she's really thinking of don't invest in stocks.

I think they cut Meghan and Ana's mic at the end.

I feel like most will side with Ana...but I kind of on Meghan's side here. The GameStop (which is EB Games for my fellow Canadians) is a big deal and to bring up the topic to just say "I don't care." Is typical for the View but I don't like it when it happens. I do think giving a check is more important, but the topic was about this so....

Meghan did throw a fit though, which doesn't help matters. 

I don't really care about stocks (it's too close to gambling for me, so I just avoid it) but it is a huge story. AMC is the next one the redditors were planning on buying next.

I’ve decided that it’s not fair to give the ladies equal time. Motor mouth Meghan gets out 500 words out a minute to the others’ 100 and she just simply gets too many words, lol. Can she talk! Then after her 10 different point lecture, another person will make one point and she interrupts. Meg, honey, they don’t pay by the word. Take it easy on our ears!

Did Meg site a “Marxist” poll?  (I rewound to check.). Did she mean Marist poll?

Meghan is so concerned with foreign organizations that provide safe abortions, yet she couldn’t care less about the separated children.

my cable provider (comcast) usually posts the shows next day, but they skipped ep 86 (tuesday) with wendy williams. I also checked the abc site and it did not show up until yesterday (it's still not listed on comcast). The cynical part of me (like 95%) suspected that Wendy herself had probably tried to quash it.  I have long considered her a vile creature in general, but after finally seeing her segments, I am pretty convinced that she is not a well person at all (not that I particularly care, but still...)

They did it to make it 100% clear they have no idea what the Gamestop thing is about. (being sarcastic here!)

Meghan is the last person (next to Sara) that they should had TRY to explain it.  If they wanted to get it accurate bring Rebecca Jarvis, the ABC finance person and let Sunny or Ana ask her questions.

I think I should refer to Meghan as Her SOURPUSS TWATNESS from now on.

During Keegan’s first few comments twat barely cracked a smile as the rest of the panel laughed about the time he popped balloons with his butt.

And still she’s muttering when Ana was stating HER opinion about the whole GameStop story. HER SOURPUSS TWATNESS  has NO IDEA of what’s happening; unlike GameStop, Wall Street and  hedge fund managers aren’t interested in making Disney, Apple, etc.,  FAIL. Even Stephen Colbert explained it so a 10 year old could understand.

I wish Ana had told her “I’m talking now” just to shut her up.

Somehow Wendy survives as a long running talk show host. 

Katie Couric, Anderson Cooper, Meredith Viera, Ricki Lake, Harry Connick Jr, Queen Latifah and long list of others have come and gone. Drew Barrymore will likely join that list too.

Wendy is still there in her chair.

Ana made a big mistake as the show was closing today, and she wanted to pay tribute to Cicley Tyson who passed away yesterday. As soon as she cut in with it, Joy quickly shut her up to say 'We're going to save that for Monday with Whoopi'. I guess Ana didn't get the memo ? I knew something was up when they didn't mention it in the beginning (though they didn't mention Cloris Leachman's passing yesterday on the show).

Such a weird day when I agree with both Ana and Meghan in the same argument.

That's actually truly sad, because it's evolved past simply being a fun story of how some Internet people were successfully clowning some Hedge Fund companies and has evolved into a truly revealing look at how much power the Hedge Funds have, and how dirty the whole system is.  

It's reasonable to argue that the joint action of the people on Reddit to boost certain stocks specifically to screw over Hedge Funds who tried to Short the stocks to milk money out of those companies dying was technically illegal. It's not akin to terrorism, like MeAgain apparently tweeted but deleted this morning, but it does arguably break laws, although ones that are apparently rarely enforced against the big guys strategizing between themselves. 

But the followup is even worse. If this was questionable activity, then freezing trading of the stock was probably kosher, while it was allowed to cool down. A totally global freeze, direct from the stock markets, applying to everyone. People would reconsider and reevaluate during such a freeze. 

But what happened instead was that mysteriously the decision of the people who run the Robinhood app most of the Redditers were using (as well as some other services used by daytraders) were set so they couldn't buy more... but COULD sell.  Meanwhile the Hedge Funds could still do whatever they wanted to with these stocks.  Guaranteeing all the stocks could do (especially Gamestop) is crater into oblivion, thus recouping a lot of the loss the Hedge Funds had had. While the small investors on Robinhood were forced to sabotage their own interest in the stock, for lack of any other options. 

The guy who runs Robinhood went on Chris Cuomo's show and transparently lied about how their decision was made. It's clear he was coerced to do it. He claimed it was just to "protect people from volatility of those stocks". Total bull.

It's not Meghan's fault she'll never know what it's like to be poor or middle-class, but I also get annoyed when she acts like she knows the average person so well and better than the other hosts. How many friends does Meghan even have who shop at Walmart? And rich folks who step foot in the store time to time do not count. I mean folks who make $50,000 or less a year, drive Hondas, shop at Walmart over Target because those pennies make a difference for them. Meghan has no clue what it's like to have a tight budget, to have to tell your kid you don't have money for something, how much it sucks when an appliance breaks down, etc. Her biggest problem in life is she doesn't get enough of her political wishes.

The View should have had you on the show to explain it.  Everyone at that table probably  has stocks, whether they are in 401ks or personal investments but I doubt any of them handle any of them themselves. They probably have business managers or whoever who handle all that for them.  What makes me sad is at the end of the day Game Stop is a real company with real employees who don't know if they are going to have jobs next month, next year or maybe even next week.  To some people the stock market might be a game but all that buying and selling affects more than just them.
