"The View": Week of 9/2/2019

I think Whoopi equating a list of people at a Trump fundraiser to McCarthyism is wrong.  People are free to support Trump just as people are free to not want to be associated with people who support Trump.

I can't watch reruns of Everyone Loves Raymond because of Patricia Heaton.

I agree.  I want to make sure I am not supporting anyone who will donate to him because in a sense then *I* am contributing to him.  

I am not anti gun but I am for reasonable/common sense laws.  The way Meghan acts about them is no different than a little girl and her doll (near tantrum and talk of taking them).  I know people hunt for food due to need.  Meghan will never have that need.  The glee she seems to have over killing an innocent creature baffles me.  But then again, I will NEVER understand sport or hobby hunting.  I gave yesterday a whirl and may try again today but like other shows I am getting tired of, it is on the cusp of being permanently cut.  I don't need to see Scowling Barbie everyday.

Meghans face is rounder.  Her jawline is softer. 

The last time I noticed this, I speculated that she might be pregnant.   And she was. 

Just saying.

Does no one challenge Meghan's comment, "The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun, in America, by far (sic)."

I'm not going to waste my time doing research, but can an assault rifle truly be the most popular gun in the United States of America?   

We have hunters, shooting clubs, shooting competitions, target shooters, etc.  Is she allowed to include mandatory military weaponry in her "popular" comment?

So by that logic, if meth were the most popular drug should that make it legal?  She is a really stupid woman who does not deserve this platform.

What WAS her point, anyway?  she wants the media to have a "gun beat", gun-owning reporters assigned to cover gun-related stories.  BUT - the only time guns are in the news is when people are shot.  So, we need gun-owning gun advocates to put a positive spin on these stories?   Or will they exclusively cover the few "good guy with a gun defeats bad guy with a gun"  stories?  Or is it just so they can drone on about classifications of automatic, semi-automatic, assault, etc. guns, and how an AK 47 is not the same as an AR 15, as though THAT is the important thing to report on when there are dead children?  

Maybe Meghan just hinted at what she wants as her next job - covering the "gun beat"  for a major media outlet.  

Wasn't that kind of the job that Dana Loesch held?  What feel good stories can they actually tell about guns?  No one cares if so and so hit the target right in the middle, people don't want to see the animal you just killed, no one wants to see you successfully carry your AR into an Arby's.  Really, what does she expect this gun beat person to report on?

When they were on hiatus, I had the show on in the background. It could have been old or new-difficult to tell. They rehash the same shit over and over. Nothing new at all to see there.

I'm so bored already that I haven't even bothered to tune in.  And judging by all your comments here, nothing has changed; same old same old.  In fact, all of your comments thus far this new season of the show could have been taken from any previous one of our threads from any random week last season.  Yay, show.  Way to keep things fresh!

 It never ceases to amaze me how some people are incapable of any empathy until it touches them personally.

Think of the thousands and thousands and thousands of parents who ridiculed, attacked, and made life dangerous for gay human beings...until they learned THEIR child was gay.  Whole 'nother story (usually).

Reading this, Natalie68, reminds me of the publicity photos of Eric and Donnie Trump with the beautiful (sometimes endangered) animals they've killed.  When I come across them and am horrified--when she sees them, does Meghan's little heart beat faster and she considers calling her travel agent?  "Trump and his brother Eric, both avid game hunters, were featured in a series of controversial photos posted online posing with animals they had killed in Africa in 2012, including an elephant, crocodile, kudu, civet cat, leopard and waterbuck."

Amen and WTF was Whoopi on about? (My god, her comments are maddeningly elliptical and confusing and so full of "ums" and "you knows" I want to shake her until her bones rattle.) McCarthyism was a government witch hunt bent on stripping citizens of their constitutional rights; this is about citizens deciding if they want to spend their disposable income (and attention) on someone supporting a political figure they find abusive and reprehensible.

If you don't want anybody to know you've given money to Trump (or anyone else) that's an issue for the actor to ponder long and hard, not information to be hidden from consumers.

Sunny continues the freeze-out of MeAgain, but in a more subtle way.  MeAgain seems to be in on it, because she all but has turned her entire body to face the audience and not Sunny.  

I was impressed with Sunny; she was throwing out an icy hauteur worthy of The Women (jungle red!)

Yes, but during the hiatus, she posted to Instagram and a lot of us commented that she looked as if she'd lost some weight. My pet theory is that the makeup artists reverse-contour her to make her face look rounder because she's so rude to them.

You have a good point. On Tuesdays show, when she was wearing white, her face looked very big and round, like a full moon.

I forgot about that! It reminds me of the episode of Friends where they are comparing traumatic Thanksgivings and Chandler talks about the butler who was sleeping with his dad and Phoebe goes "Oh did the little rich boy have a little problem with the help?" or something to that effect.

I can see where it grates, but I'd rather she be honest about her wealth growing up than pretending to be a middle-class kid.

I already throw up in my mouth a little when she affects a Western drawl every time she talks about being a "good ol' girl" (pay attention, you'll notice it). I'd rather not have her pretend to be Susie from P.S. 18, too.

And Meg continues to spout the lie that Elizabeth Warren “pretended to be a Native American.”  Over the break I read EW’s book and this is just not true. She does have an ancestor (great gma?) who was NA, which is a far cry from “pretending” to be NA. 

Just about every family that's been in this country for a while has a story about a Native American ancestor. That's how we used to learn things, stories passed down from our older relatives. It was only with the advent of commercial DNA kits that we learned more about our genetic makeup.

1.  I'm disappointed that not ONE panel member challenged Meghan's calling Elizabeth Warren a LIAR!

2. My ex-husband told everyone (especially our children) that he/they were part Native American because his mother was born in Oklahoma.  My boys got their DNA tests and learned they are NOT Native American.  I saw the ex's mother's birth certificate and she was born in Idaho. I don't think even HE believed his own "stories."

I didn't catch the name of the book Meghan mentioned.  It was during the discussion about the "exorcism" of the Harry Potter books by a Catholic elementary school.  Meghan said that when she was 11, her nanny took a book away from her because of the title--which included "Witch."

She probably made an exception because I'm sure a lot of the art created after Meghan was born was done in blue states.

There isn't a Warren supporter on the panel.  Joy loves Biden, Sunny is hard to pin down, the 2 republicans are idiots and Whoopi is still reeling from the fresh new insight that major corporations don't pay a penny in Federal Income Tax!  WTF?!?!

This is why I can't watch the discussion part of the show.  I deleted the first show of the new season because it had no guests.  I only watched Bernie's segment yesterday.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around any of them equating this to a blacklist in any sense when the information is always made part of public record. Whoopi often talks out of her ass and doesn't seem to think that use of appropriate words and being coherent is all that necessary for her job. Whoopi was effectively arguing against (and Meghan co-signing with her sound effects in the background) the freedom of an individual to make informed personal and professional decisions that they feel is consistent with their integrity and values because that essentially was their point - they have their eyes on that fundraiser and will be paying attention to who is spending what and maybe that will shape their own personal decisions of who they work with and what corporations they support as a consumer. That is within their right. At least wait for them to start calling for collective boycotts before getting incensed over the request to have public information shared.

Yes, Meghan has a little thing she does when she's portraying herself as a down-home American/Arizona/Wyoming gal.  At times it's obvious, other times it's subtle.  She cocks her head slightly to one side, talks out of the side of her mouth (like she's got a cigar) and has a slight drawl.   Most often, it's when she's talking about whiskey, guns, or understanding "trump's base".

I'd comment on the show so far but I could not decipher one single word that was said.   They ALL talked at the same time; they ALL talked over one another; all I heard was blah blah blah blah blah.    The whole first segment was a hot mess.   I hope that before they come back from break, all their mothers text them about taking turns.

Was Meghan trying to say soupçon, when (during the Hurricane Sharpie discussion, she referenced Trump's nuking hurricane plans and) she said she watched every episode of Chernobyl, and '...anyone with the faintest "say sahn" of logic knows that that's insane'."?

PRO TIP: it's pronounced soo-sohn

I think she wore it hoping she would be criticized for it and get tons of press. She was trying the 'tan suit effect' but in white. As she squeezed her haunches into it, she dreamt of her face being on all the tvs in the tv store as every talking head across the world reported on her faux pas-ah but not so fast. Then she would have her mic drop moment where she revealed to all the plebes that she wore white to represent white in the flag and everyone criticizing her hates America and besides, that rule doesn't apply to the princess of Arizona.  Then she would do finger guns and say Pew! Pew! pew! and we are all dead.
