First: thank you, thank you, thank you Whoopi for making it clear - there is no such thing as "late-term abortions."

This was very interesting to me.  NutMeg backed right down when Whoopi told her this.  But where was Whoopi when NutMeg was going off on one of the candidates (Klobuchar?), demanding she answer whether she supports late term abortions, aka infanticide, according to NutMeg?

"ABC executives apparently hired Huntsman to offer some emotional support to McCain, whose polarizing presence on the show regularly receives online backlash and scrutiny, and the show's research on her scored extremely low.

The source said: 'The network felt as though hiring Meghan's best friend would make her more likable."

So, basically...Abby was brought in as a emotional support/therapy animal for Meghan?

If Meghan is fired, she would be furious if  Abby stays there.

Anyone else think of Bitsy when NutMeg got defensive when Sunny asked her to define conservative values?  Plus, she snarled and oddly used the word "professorial". Bitsy used to freak out when the panellists asked her to define her beliefs, saying that she wasn't expecting a "pop quiz". 🤣

Quote

Well, no disrespect, I’m not here to teach a professorial class,” McCain said, looking toward the audience.

NutMeg snarls at View Cohosts, she's not there to teach a professorial class

I like that the site Raw Story is now using the word snarl in relation to NutMeg. ❄️

Meghan needs Self Awareness 101

That and a producer shutting off her mic and buzzing in her ear whenever she interrupts the guest or cohost who is speaking.  She'd bark a question at Ana and then interrupt before she got half a sentence out.

That was exactly what I thought too.  Meghan was very flustered.  It was a joy to watch.

Meghan didn’t really push back on Whoopi at all, you’re right. And I agree with your second point as well. I suspect Whoopi can’t take Meghan’s lies on that particular subject  anymore? I have no clue but it was interesting to see how quickly Meghan backed down from Whoopi during that exchange. Without her emotional support in the form of Abby Huntsman at the table, she only has Whoopi. Once she loses Whoopi, it’s over. That’s my only guess.

I can't believe Meghan tried it again with Ana. Last year, Ana handed Meghan her ass on a dinner plate when they were talking about DACA!

 Also loved Ana correcting McCain in that same segment that her Arizona senator is not a Republican—and it’s the Republican Majority that are the Straight Pride Parade her joke referred to.

I found this moment so funny, MM brought up her Dem. senator when  Ana clearly said Republican. She just had to find a way to make it about her in some way.

--

It's also humorous when she brings up snowflakes because she is the biggest snowflake at the table.

The Mindy Kaling interview felt weird. I wonder if it was pre-recorded before the live show.

The whole show was pre-recorded.  Not sure why.  And when they do that they shouldn't talk news or politics because things change quickly.  Biden switched his position on federal funding for abortions last evening, so maybe he is now too far left for NutMeg.😱

Yes.  A woman who was 9 months pregnant with twins, gave birth to twins.  It was a miracle and they announced it on a very special episode of The View.

When she said she was "culturally" attacked I furled my brow.  Having thought about it I take it to mean she does not like the melting pot that is NYC and how different groups can co-exist together.  WOW!

Because she doesn't know what to think.  It wasn't on her blue cards.

Meghan could not answer Joy’s question about far left/socialism without Ana’s help, or what Conservative values are.  Ben needs to spend more time providing her with better talking points, rather than tweeting that late night tv hosts are gay.

I think the problem she has, and many other Trumpers have, is that the idea of the Democratic tent where all ideas have merit and then goals are set to best achieve the ideals that provide the most impact on the whole tent, is foreign.  A few years ago even the GOP had a tent, a pup tent perhaps, and ideals were bandied about.  Even if I didn't agree with their ideals there was merit to the process.

What kills me is that MM finally said she believed in 1. smaller government; 2. not having healthcare for all; 3. anti-choice.  Just those three points are in disagreement with each other.  How do you accomplish one of those points while allowing the other two?

She has no idea that without healthcare/prenatal care/nutrition/food/clothing/education then we would be rolling back to the days of women as property, living in squalor, and children being sent to the factories, just for a family to survive.  She has no idea how real people, anywhere, live.

Good grief - not sure how long MM has worked in NYC (on FOX) but she also went to Columbia for 4 years. 

I truly think she thinks she is attacked because she is a R and not because of her nasty personality.

I love the respect Ana gets from W, J, and S. They can discuss and any interruptions by any of those 4 is immediately a clarification rather than a fight. Like most interruptions by Meghan which is never for clarification but rather an attack by MM.

McCain Republican!!  Where did that come from?  I think she put it out there, hoping it’ll catch on.  Her dad was a politician, maybe a good one, but hardly the god she’s tried to turn him into.     What is wrong with her?

Btw, how rude was it when Joy said we do agree on some things and Meghan shot back “we agree on nothing” and looked horrified at the idea. Gosh, I hate when people go that deep down the rabbit hole that they can’t find any shared humanity with the “other side”.  Off the top of my head, LGBT rights is an area where she is in agreement with Joy. Also some women’s issues. And she had the nerve to say she liked Biden because he was willing to work with Republicans when she can’t even admit she and Joy could have one value in common! You couldn’t make it up sometimes. 

Also, when Joy said she had the same curriculum at Queens college as Meghan had at Columbia, does anyone else think that a little subtle shading?  I mean she had just said Joy was the most radical leftist she ever knew and claimed to be from a deep red state and an outsider in NYC. I think Joy brought up Columbia to let the audience know that Meghan quickly got out of her red state, was educated in Columbia and was not a newcomer to liberal idea, to the city or to living in a blue state. It was a more subtle and polite way of letting her know that no way were her art history Columbia professors right wingers that made Joy seem like a scary radical.

I think Joy needs to educate herself before asking someone she doesn’t agree with to disabuse her of her political beliefs. Meghan was right that Joy is far left. The simplistic answer is the far left wants more regulation, more taxation, more spending...more government. Every relevant issue doesn’t easily fit the left/right paradigm. It’s more a matter of what you think the role of the government is and what policies and candidates you support.

I don’t think that’s what she said or meant. If you’re going to have a political discussion, you kind of don’t get to sit there and play dumb and ask people to explain things to you. Meghan isn’t quick on her feet, but neither is Joy when it comes to politics.

Oh god!  Meghan can talk a lot and say NOTHING!   

So every democrat except Biden is too far left.  Joy asks what exactly that means.  Ana says the hyde amendment, health care.  Meghan interrupts to say JOY is far-left, and so is every dem candidate except for Biden. (wait, isn't this where we started? you can't explain something by stating it again)  Joy asks why - and Meghan says there are SO MANY things - but then al she can think of is to repeat the same two things that Ana just said!   Oh - let's also throw in that democrats favor late-term abortions, because that's Meghan's favorite lie.  (thank you whoopi, for pointing it out!) 

Then Meghan starts naming which candidates are moderate, and how they're "blowing the others out of the water."  On and on and on.... 

the question - if Biden is moderate, and the others are "too far left"  WHAT is the definition of "far-left?"  Oh, the definition is "everyone except Biden."  Meghan's circular reasoning. 

Sunny was correct that the "far-left" is a republican talking point (yeah, we just heard that from the republican scoffing next to you while you are talking.)

so the second segment, Joy wants clarification on why Meghan thinks Joy is far-left.   Meghan says "she thinks I'm far right!"  As if that answers anything!   They never really got an answer, because Meghan has NO IDEA, at all, what the hell she's talking about.   The question was about what policies or IDEAS are "LEFT", Meghan wants to answer in terms of PEOPLE.  JOY BEHAR is the "most radical left person she's ever known."   STILL - no explanation.  Just "I am a conservative, from a deep red state, you are radical."  (insert bullshit about NYC and feeling so alone)   Then Sunny asked AGAIN for clarification, what are "conservative values?"  Meghan scoffs, says she's not there to teach, then, 18 minutes into the show, she FINALLY gives a bit of an answer,, not about the "far left" , but about her own "pro-life, small government, national defense, America is a shining beacon."  then she starts naming names again.  

Meghan talks more than anyone else, interrupts everyone, but still says NOTHING.  

You all got me curious. Great posts. So I watched, damn Meghan really does talk a lot but actually says NOTHING.

"McCain Republican" is not a thing Meghan.  You can't make it a thing. You will try. I'll bet that phrase is repeated over and over in the coming months.

I also thought it was interesting that Meghan was offended and said she wasn't there to teach (or whatever she said) when asked what she sees as Republican Values.  But again  asks Ana to define herself, and why she considers herself a Republican.

Meghan speaks in talking points. Democrats are many many things,  she may or may not know this but mostly she doesn't care. 

On a funny note. Does she not feel embarrassed when she talks about snowflakes? She really has no grip on reality if she can't hear everyone snickering at the biggest whitest coldest  most delicate snowflake talking about how much she hates snowflakes 🤣

I think it's because Joy had cataract surgery and didn't want to moderate Friday's, and Whoopi only does 4 days a week. They must've recorded after Thursday's show.

I can't get over how strange Friday was. First Whoopi takes them to commercial prematurely at the end of the first segment, saying they'll continue talking about this. My first reaction was, "Yeah, right." That's code for, "We're trying to prevent the baby from having a screaming meltdown and this topic will never be heard again." Then for once they actually did come back talking about it still, except they were only on for like 1 minute before back to commercials again. Then after the break for some reason they were still talking about it. LOL My guess is they were trying to give Joy a chance to record what she wanted to say without being shouted over in that 1-minute second segment. I'm sure McCain was screaming in rage at everyone during those commercials--producers, co-hosts, audience, etc.--for daring to ask her to explain her beliefs even though she didn't have the answers on her blue cards and then she was barely containing herself when they were on-air. She really needs to see someone over her anger issues. Her behavior is not normal.

Even with the rest of the show being a trainwreck, Mindy Kaling was a lovely interview as expected.

It was like a couple of weeks ago when she was telling a guest about how wonderful The View is because it welcomes all views and lets people speak, when she is the major offender cutting off everyone else who is trying to express their views while she screeches.
