And my god, the way she said it -- as if ready to spring into the opening lyrics of some demented Broadway show tune cross between 1776 and Hamilton  ("I'm dumb as a post and screech like an owl - I'm John McCain's daughter!  He was a hero and I am not - I'm John McCain's daughter!  I braid my hair! I run my mouth! I speak for every soul in the south! I'm a fool and tool and a blowharding mule -- but I'm John McCain's daughter!" )

BRAVA!!! I think this was from Film Noire. My apologies. I couldn't get the quotes to work for me. And I can't spell.

ABBY highly recommended the Bravo mini-series, "Dirty John."   I do too!  It's a true story and very interesting.  I don't know that I've seen Eric Bana in anything but I don't want to from now on.

What's even better is a follow-up.  A documentary on Oxygen, "Dirty John, the Dirty Truth."   Enlightning.

*Meghan scratching her head* I'm not a lawyer, I don't understand this (in reference to them discussing the Buzzfeed story that Trump directed Cohen to lie to Congress).

Oh, I agree with you Megz! You're definitely not a lawyer and you don't understand many things! (:

Also, why is she so upset about Joy bringing up Nixon? As Joy and many historians have noted, there are a lot of similarities between the two. Since Meggie "The Political Analyst" McCain claims to know so much about politics, one would think she'd understand the comparison. 

And why is she, once again, screeching about people in the audience clapping? 

I didn't mind the intent of Meghan asking for a concise soundbite. It was a lot of legal jargon. I was able to follow it because I am an insomniac and read the Buzzfeed article when it dropped in the middle of the night and then I fell down the Twitter rabbit hole, but it was a lot of information if someone had just woken up to hear about it. I am so tired.

But her delivery, like everything, just comes across as hostile and as if she's over the topic.

You probably copied @Tammee's post, quoting @film noire's original post,which is one page back. And since the quote was in the former's comment, the quote is attributed to Tammee and not Film Noire.

Talk about thirsty. Look in the mirror, Nutmeg! And Lord, what was she wearing? A giant bedspread?

I loved that for most of the show 'resting bitchface' was silent. I heard her try to interject herself into discussions but the women slammed the door on her - and it was GLORIOUS! Ana talked right over her with the tweets/Cardi B. Nutmeg was in 'VIEW JAIL'. Sigh. I'm happy now.

Yes watching body language she was solemn on occasion saying “ I will say that”  then looking down on blue cards to repeat someone’s else’s opinion. The first time she said it today she repeated it within seconds in that blue card spiel.   And screw you for the we all talk about Nixon everyday.  I know it’s off topic but what her husband tweeted about Ana is Bitchy and I don’t know how Ana can sit there and be pleasant to her in anyway. Shall we take bets on who gets an invite to the wedding they did talk about today ? How did I miss Abby recommendation do Dirty John ? What was it in context to?  I was addicted to the case also, plus the creep was originally from my home town.

It was in "Abby context," which doesn't always make sense--within the "Red Flag" discussion...what negatives to look for in your man--just before Ana mentioned that her fiance is a "heterosexual Liberace."

Asked which voice she was going to use ( meaning accent is phony) the one she uses on stage or the one backstage

Fairly new "View-er" here, so apologize in advance if this has already been discussed, but seriously...is Whoopi 3-years old? How childish is it not to say Trump's name?  She says "the guy in the White House" or "the (whatever) one" instead of his last name. I can understand if she doesn't want to call him (her) president, but come on...stop acting like baby, Whoopi. Nobody's forcing you to address Trump with a prefix (Mister or President), but not using his last name is silly for a grown woman.

I love that she does that.   She doesn't accept that he's a legit president, so she won't call him "president."  

 

Nobody's asking her to call him "president". He has a surname. It's not difficult to pronounce.

It annoys me when Whoopi doesn't say his name only because I think there are people out there who don't watch The View regularly (and may not realize she doesn't say his name, causing confusion) as well as people for whom English is not their first language (it was said recently people watch it overseas on Youtube) and they may not realize who she's talking about.  The "guy in the White House" is not too bad, but when she says "the new guy," I'm sure there are people out there who have to think about to whom she's referring.  Like Joy said this week, he's not "new" anymore.

My theory for Whoopi's  trump euphamisms is that, even though she NEVER lets go of anything she thinks brands her, it's also one of her zillion time-fillers. There's always a thoughtful pause after she says it which helps her avoid having to misread the teleprompter for an extra few seconds.

I agree, it is annoying and extremely unprofessional in my opinion. The View is part of ABC News so the “experts” on the panel should behave accordingly. Whoopi is a just being immature.  She can’t get over the fact that Trump won the election and won’t let anyone forget it. Instead of getting angry, she should proactively work towards promoting  a candidate who could replace Trump in 2020.

Whoopi confuses everyone and herself quite often.  Refusing to say "his" name adds so little to the problem...especially for the viewers described above.

Whoopi doesn’t work for the Administration and neither is this show a news broadcast, where she would be required to say his name. She can say whatever she wants and if it was an issue, I’m sure the suits would tell her so.

Her refusal to say his name has nothing to do with her not being able to pronounce it. I see it as her way of protesting. It may bother some, but it’s her right to do so. Just as no one says anything when Meghan vilifies those she doesn’t like with nicknames she’s come up with.

I agree 100%.

(With you and with whoopi)

Her wardrobe is as bipolar as she is.  One day she is dressed like school marm and then the next day she is dressed like oh hell i can't even describe what she wore yesterday.

I'd love her to go toe-to-toe with Rachel Maddow, who would be able to explain to her WHY it's important to study Nixon. 

I just realized Meghan wasn't there when Rachel Maddow came on in 2017. God I hope they have her on the show again ASAP.

The suits have always had a "whatever" attitude when it comes to The View panel.

That isn't entirely true.  Pretty sure it was the suits who made Joy apologize to nurses a few years ago when she made a joke about the nurse at some pageant.

Are these HER choices...or is the Wardrobe Department having a bit-o-fun?

Castro is a light weight, but he will be a heavy hitter one day.

I think both Castro brothers have an odd look which (hopefully) will become more handsome as they get older.  Rather than their slicked-down hair, I'd like to see a more natural look.  These days politics is too much about "optics."

I love their looks, due to the fact that they don't look  like everybody.  I love their deep voice...

I find the “joke” that calling him “the new guy” or anything else is so stale at this point that it’s just clunky to hear her say it all the time.  Why not just call him Trump? No need to say president trump.

It IS stale, but aren't all her "jokes."   How long ARE those breasts?  That Valley Girl voice.  An impersonation of Carol Channing that no one got.   Here's the thing...........
