The View: Week of 5/3/2021

Recommended Posts

Oh, spare us the outrage, Meghan.  I have never seen someone talk out of both sides of her mouth, as she does.  Take a breath, and chill.   And, please...you are comparing yourself to Liz Cheney, other than they both had famous, political fathers, the comparison ends there.  It is always me, me, me, and it is getting damn tiresome. Who made her the Greatest Woman Republican Conservative Political Analyst, Daughter of John McCain, in the Universe?

While the Billy &Tiff segments were funny and delightful, i don't think the panel talked about the movie at all hahaha.  There's just so much stuff to gab and catch up about. Billy was looking a lil perturbed there hehe

I thought she threw out a “Jesus”, then I second guessed myself. 

She did it was in the beginning of the rant.  I've heard it thrown around a couple times.  first time here.

Not only that, but when you sign up with facebook or any other social media platform, you agree to the terms and conditions.  Most people do not read every word, but you have to check the box that you read and agreed with the terms, and understand that if you violate the terms, you can face being kicked off the platform.  

It's basically like inviting people to your home.  If they start yelling nonsense, or saying something you don't agree with, you have the right to ask them to leave.  It doesn't violate anyone's free speech to say "you can't talk like that in my home."  

I’m surprised that no one brought up the fact that social media platforms are also required to meet the rules of their hosting company. If they don’t make the attempt to moderate their users then they get shut down just like Parler. I have no problem with a user getting banned permanently if they continually break the rules.

MeAgain is getting lots of coverage for her tirade today, which apparently was 3 minutes long!

She's mighty happy with herself. Here is a tweet of her from a couple of hours ago.

(1) Meghan McCain on Twitter: "#CheetoJesus is trending. You guys... 😆🤣" / Twitter

That Tim guy is on it...  He's got a few choice opinions on her "realization". 

Meanwhile she's bragging that she said Cheeto Jesus and it trended?  A phrase that variations of have been out there literally for years now?  Good lord. 

MeAgain really IS the most fitting nickname for her....

Exactly!  It just bothers me when I hear Americans complain about censorship when we have the most liberal free speech rights in the world. No other country allows its citizens the freedom of expression like we do. You can spread lies on social media and not get in trouble. We can say anything we want without fear of reprisals from the government. Dissenters in our country of the government are not murdered imprisoned tortured or driven into exiles.   Americans need to take civics classes because it is embarrassing to hear people whine about facebook censoring their first amendment rights.

Errr, Canada's free speech laws are legendary.  LOL.

What I heard was Cheeto Jesus…which I actually hadn’t heard before but kind of like.

Re the Whoopie references…haddish said it as she was being informed about winning and wasn’t on the show yet.  I much prefer some sucking up to Whoopie, who has actually earned some sucking up on her own (and during times that wasn’t easy for a black somewhat non conforming woman), than AZ Princess getting it second hand through MyFather…she hasnt earned any of that sucking up and it’s a lot more frequent.

That’s true.  Whoopie is an icon and Meghan is basically famous adjacent.

ITA. I have my criticisms of Whoopi, but I'd be hella starstruck seeing her. She's Whoopi Goldberg! She is an icon and a very talented one at that. As anyone who's paid attention to my posts might guess, I wouldn't exactly be stoked to meet the princess.

I've seen Trump referred to as a Cheeto literally dating back pretty much to the famous escalator ride.  Mostly in YouTube comments, but I'm supposing that reflects Twitter too, which I don't habitually read.

I've seen it in comments at Huff Po. 

Should we accuse Meghan of appropriating it?  It's not like her tribe uses that term.  The other side uses it.

Whoopi and Joy are spot-on about that stupid Atlantic article.

Meg, as always, is an idiot. Hating Trump had nothing to do with it. I want to get back to normal more than anything, but the fact that people haven’t gotten vaccinated because her ilk keeps disparaging it because it’s “personal freedom” to choose not to makes it fucking harder!!!!!

Who the hell cares if people continue to use strict safety protocols?  What’s it to them?  It’s not distrusting the science if you continue to wear a mask. Joy is right, it’s a distraction and not a real story.  And of course Meg slams Fauci for not feeling comfortable in public.

Can someone tell Meganutz she didn't have to wait to get double vaccinated before she went drinking in Vegas or visiting her family ? Travel has been open for the past 14 months - she could do whatever she wants, especially in republican cities and states who didn't give a damn about mask wearing, social distancing, etc. She could have partied on the beaches of Florida like she was 18 again for the past 14 months. It was her patriotic American choice not to - just like others have choices in the country.

I don't feel comfortable in public because I live in a state with lots of people not getting vaccinated. That is not Dr. Fauci's fault.  I blame @Spartan Girl what she said.

I have a co worker who refuses to get vaccinated.  Says if our employer mandated it (which would not happen) he would quit.

McCain's hatred of Fauci is irrational--like most of the time. There's really nothing that he could say or do that would be "correct" in her eyes, because her priority is disparaging him. She's following her talking points and those center around attempting to tear down the face of the CDC and government guidelines as much as possible. Her abuse of The View's platform--and ABC allowing that abuse--is part of the reason they're now talking about people still wearing masks because those people know there are people who refuse to get vaccinated. It's mind-breaking for someone to act deliberately to cause a problem and then blame other people for then acting wisely in response to the problem they helped to create.

Whoopi used to make the casino rounds and she did a few shows at a casino near me a couple of times.  The first time was before she joined The View and I really badly wanted to go see her because she was Whoopi Goldberg!  The second time she came around was a few years into her View gig.  Husband asked if I wanted to go.  Meh.  No thanks.  Best sums up the Whoopi Goldberg experience for me.

This is true.  Which IMO makes ABC complicit in helping her spread disinformation. The garbage she spews isn't just a difference of opinion.  It's garbage that is harmful to people who believe it.. Which makes it harmful to all of us who come into contact with people with people who believe it.  As I always say too bad being stupid isn't painful.

I think most of what she says is for affect.  She wants people to talk about her and doesn’t seem to care why.  She tries to appear angrier and  harder everyday.  As far as being hard or tough😂😂, she’s a spoiled brat who’s never had to deal with anything  that would make her either of those.     Her idea of being tough is shooting helpless animals, drinking too much and smoking cigars.

On a happier note, Sara looked absolutely stunning. That shade of green is absolutely perfect on her. The hair and makeup were flawless. Her hair looks much better down than it does pulled back. Then she looks too severe.

People like The Princess don't seem to realize - or care - that they're part of the problem and not the solution. I understand ABC tolerates her for the buzz she brings to the show, but they need to come down on her more harshly when she slams the likes of Dr. Fauci. It's not right.

The most frequent forms have been Cheeto Mussolini and Cheeto Hitler.  If MeAgain innovated with "Jesus"... big deal.  She's still way too impressed with herself. It's not even funny, because he and his followers are the only ones who see him as Jesus. 

But yeah.  I recall the Randy Rainbow near version to that now too.

Re Will .... I think he’s great. My wish would be that his initial funny post was simply what it seemed and that he was approached later for this partnership (and that there’s no profit to him). I’m probably being naive though in which case I think both Sunny and Sara were right on with their comments.

You just won the internet for me today.  When I was a believer he was a favorite and this week going through my father in laws jewelry found myself bewildered to find a St Chris medal in the collection. 

You all cover the important points from the show so since I’m west coast I sit here continuously distracted by MEeAgain’s upper lip, leading me to believe she’s been out and about for injections or has new veneers. 
 I don’t know how I feel about returning to the studio, her disrespect in person is harder for me to take.
