Joy seemed miffed when Ana pointed out that she is the same age as Biden.

by Anonymousreply 2June 28, 2024 4:41 PM

Fuck Joy. All she did was deflect back to Trump and use the cold excuse for his lackluster performance. As Sara said if a cold can take you out then maybe you shouldn't be POTUS.

The video of him at an after-party did show him to be much more animated. I'll bet he has debate anxiety and you could see some of his speaking patterns were to hold back the stuttering. Still, optics matter.

It's weird how Biden was perky and spry not much longer after his brutal debate showing. It occurred to me he could have been given something to fuck his head up. Anyone else suspicious that a drop of something gnarly was given to the old man prior to the debate?

Did Trump get something from Putin for pooting?

Surprised that Sara was so adamant that Biden step down. And that she called the show out for contributing to the minimization of Biden's problems.

Sunny of course retweets an article after the show implying that the debate was racist because it only focused on the problems of old, white men. Did she bring that up at all during the show?

Tired of Whoopi’s “We all poop our pants” analogies And not what you want to say regarding Biden at this point. And Ana and Whoopi proclaiming they know Biden personally? Why does everyone on this panel think they can end a discussion by saying they know that said person they’re talking about?,

And Sunny why did you push so hard for a black woman VP if you don’t think she can win as President? That was a fence sitting response.

Sara gave the most reasonable view out of all of them.

At least Joy wasn’t there today.

They're turning into the type of people they mock. They now sound like Trump supporters except they're for Biden.

I also caught that new talking point dropped by Alyssa how Biden is becoming like Trump in he only ever says he's the only man for the job as opposed to talking about his platform in 2024. Maybe if he didn't look and sound like walking death, he'd be able to talk about his platform instead of constantly repeating "I can do the job for four more years." NO YOU CAN'T.

Whoopi is not only a celebrity apologist she has now fanned out to include politicians.

Ana is just a name-dropping ass-kisser. Fuck off with your Biden hugs.

Sara is the voice of reason at the table so they all try to drown her out or dismiss her opinion.

Alyssa went stealth Republican today. She sees the writing on the wall. I hope she's not on Trump's hit list come 2025.

Biden promised to be a transitional bridge for the next generation of politicians. He said he was running in 2020 to save the soul of our nation. Now he (and his wife) refuse to relinquish power for the greater good. He should have served for one term and then bowed out for '24. Now we're less than four months out and we're screwed. Thanks Joe and thanks Jill. Thanks a lot.

The idea that we shouldn't even be talking about Biden's declining faculties is what really pisses me off. Maybe if it was October I'd agree, but it's July and we're still weeks away from the convention. Now is exactly when we should be talking about it while there's still something that can potentially be done. And I agree the staunch Biden supporters are becoming just as bad as the Trumpers, telling everyone to not believe they're lying eyes and insisting he'll rise to the occasion once he's elected. What happened to when someone shows you who they are, believe them? Biden has showed us he's too old. But we're supposed to pretend he's fine and will still be fine at 86? Give me a break.

Biden is barely running a campaign and the one he is running sucks. I think anyone who seems vaguely normal and coherent would be considered electable to most of the public. And anyone who becomes the nominee will instantly become recognizable nationwide--I really don't think lack of name recognition prior to the nomination matters. And, franky, relying on name recognition is how we got saddled with Biden the last time.

Sunny is pushing for Kamala as President. Thus her constant emphasis on Biden-Harris. I would vote for Harris in a second but Sunny is greatly overestimating her appeal to voters. I had to laugh when she says that people fear her. Come on. And Bidens black support has decreased for a while now.

Joy said she’s conflicted about the whole thing. As much as she is annoyed, I think she would jump on board quickly with any nominee.

Whoopi is another story, In the Elizabeth- Sherri years she often brought up her friendship with Biden and how they often wound up riding the same Amtrak train together back to their respective homes. She’s visibly pissed every time this story is brought up.

Then we have Alyssa trying to suppress her glee at the idiocy that is now the Democratic party. I told you so. Yes, you did, Alyssa.

Then there's Sunny pounding the table demanding we take the black vote seriously. Going full-bore for Biden/Harris '24. She can't wait for Biden to bite the big one so her sister from another mister can assume her rightful place in (unemployment line? No?) Oh, the Oval Office.

And finally, there's Sara who refuses to keep quiet with her doubts about Biden's ability to stay upright for the next four years. You give those old broads hell, Sara. Keep speaking for those in the party who have concerns about the old boy.

If The View is going to lose any of the panel, I would hope for Sunni to get the axe. Her general demeanor during (especially) the past 5 years or so has been tough to swallow. Aside from the fact that everyone in showbiz is somewhat narcissistic, she rides this obnoxious personality trait to the limit every day. She has become intolerable and completely self-absorbed. Yes, I complain about her her a lot here, but for good reason. She is like a panel dominatrix. She controls conversations by refusing to look others in the eye. She has this thing whereby if she never looks at anyone while speaking, they do not exist in her narcissistic mind. She will simply continue on rants until the others tire of attempting to get her to look, pay any attention, and much less .. shudder .. get a word in. fukdat shit.

Whoopi knew she wouldn't last with Rosie, especially as the moderator, and wanted an 'out' - so ABC agreed this was the bet strategy for Whoopi's exit. Instead, Rosie took everyone by surprise and announced she was leaving the show in early February. Plans for Whoopi's late night talk show were put on hold, and she has yet to leave the show.

Joy looked absolutely pissed off at Anna on Monday when she (as the moderator) moved on from Trump / Gun control to talk about those notables who died over the weekend. Anna cut her off after she mentioned the last name, and said "Can I say something in the last 40 seconds?" which unpleasantly surprised Joy, and then Anna went on and on again about gun control. Camera goes back to Joy to close the segment and she looks disgusted.

R122, Ana ALWAYS tries to undermine Joy when Joy is in the moderator's seat. She'll say something as they're all getting settled at the table before Joy has a chance to start the convo. Or she'll go off-topic by saying I know we're talking about this but I 'd like to talk about this for a moment.

Yesterday she went way over in her allotted time during the Trump attempt segment. The show is not free-flowing as some would believe. Each co-host is given a specific talking point and they're supposed to stick to the topic and then yield to the next co-host.

I understand those that seek out careers in front of the camera have egos but man, Ana is beyond the pale.

I, for one, am glad she does this. Look at what happened in 2016, when the media / every poll had Clinton winning over Trump by a landslide. Americans stayed home, rather than vote, as the media assured them that Clinton was going to win. Whoopi needs to keep reminding us about this.

R128, Whoopi is dead weight who wastes valuable time dropping her perceived pearls of wisdom. Anyone who was old enough to vote in 2000 knows that a few people can make the difference between a win and a loss (and the SC stepping in.) They also know not to be swayed by polls.

R130, that's not true. Hillary did not campaign in solid blue states throughout the Rust Belt, arrogant in the assumption she had them in her column. Trump knew these people felt their concerns were not being addressed so he swooped in for the kill. Electoral votes guaranteed. Game over. He worked the electoral college map to perfection.

Plus during both campaigns in 2008 and 2016 Hillary had the worst possible campaign managers.

I feel the same way about someone like Mike Tyson. You might not like him, but when he's getting interviewed, he listens to the question and gives you something thoughtful that you might not have expected to hear from him. (He gets wacky sometimes, but he's given some good interviews.)

Can you imagine those two trying to have a conversation with each one losing their train of thought as they desperately grasp for words. You know. Look.

I am so sick of Sunny. She's practically salivating with her delusions of Kamala grandeur. She cannot win a GE so fuck off with your black women will stay home bullshit threats.

The way they went ballistic today when Christie refused to commit to a candidate was ridiculous. This is why Whoopi (absent) Joy, Sunny and Ana should not be allowed to do serious interviews. Sunny says she does not lose her composure yet look at the way she reacted when Christie said he may not vote this November. Joy also. And Ana with her ridiculous name-dropping allowed Christie to go in for the kill.

Can you imagine Barbara Walters treating a guest the way these women do?
