Republican Presidential Candidate Tim Scott’s Appearance On “The View” Got So Unraveled That Whoopi Goldberg Asked The Crew To Step In
Because many of us are clenching our butt cheeks together in foreboding of Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis slipping into the White House to strip large groups of their rights, it’s easy to forget that there are several more Republicans who’ve thrown their hat into the 2024 presidential ring. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is one of that motley crew of probably far-fetched contenders, and he took to The View yesterday to do that typical Republican thing where they deny the existence of systemic racism and rail against government overreach while simultaneously calling for the government to ban things it shouldn’t concern itself with. And like many segments on The View, Tim’s didn’t go well, and bitch got booed. At one point, it also got so chaotic that Whoopi Goldberg eventually asked a crew member to get Tim to stop talking so they could go to a commercial break.
We can’t credit Alyssa Milano for the creation of the #MeToo movement but we can acknowledge that she was one of the first celebrities to inspire my usage of the hashtag #TookToTwitter, which, despite my considerable efforts over the years to make that a thing, continues to languish from disuse, forever criminally underused and hanging by a thread much like the fate of Twitter itself since Elon Musk took over (or #TookTwitter, for those keeping track) and fired all the adults. But ever since Alyssa got a little bit of credit for helping #MeToo spread like wildfire on Twitter back in the early days of our current end times, she’s used the platform as a virtual soapbox (yes, her avatar is STILL standing on a literal one, megaphone in hand) for her burgeoning career as a leftist rabble-rouser. And she’s not going down without a fight.
Spooky Season is in full swing, and if Terrifier 2 making people faint and vomit wasn’t disturbing enough, now we have to find a way to reconcile the mental image of Joy Behar having sex. And not just sex with anyone–because like Paz de la Huerta, Anna Nicole Smith, and Bobby Brown who came (wah-wah-wee-wah!) before her–Joy has rubbed uglies with a ghost. And not just one, several.
Whoopi Goldberg Responded To A Movie Critic Who Said Her “Till” Fat Suit Was “Distracting” By Clarifying That She Wasn’t Wearing One
These days, it seems like Whoopi Goldberg’s full job description at The View consists of saying something truly ignorant (like this) or saying something true, but considered mildly contentious (re: Lindsey Graham), and then having to backpedal or explain herself; keeping people guessing about whether or not she actually just farted on air; OR having to stay cool, calm, and collected while addressing people’s blunt critiques and questions about her physical appearance. First, there was that time when Shark Tank’s Barbara Corcoran basically called her a fat ass right to her face on the show. Then, Whoopi explained to the panel why she doesn’t rock eyebrows. And now, Whoopi had to clear up a comment by a movie reviewer that her “fat suit” was “distracting” even though she wasn’t wearing one in the new movie Till, which she appears in and produced.
Whoopi Goldberg Apparently Got A Talking To After Making A Gay Joke About Lindsey Graham On “The View”
Today’s episode of And Whoopi Sighed finds our beleaguered co-host of The View, Whoopi Goldberg, once again questioning her life choices after presumably getting an earful at the commercial break after making a crack about Senator Lindsey Graham’s sexuality on yesterday’s show with guest White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. Unfortunately for Whoopi, the joke wasn’t that Senator Graham would fuck the devil himself in exchange for a discernible jawline, instead it was a lazy quip suggesting that his sudden reversal on regulating abortion and gay marriage at the federal level instead of leaving it to the states to decide, means he’s in a rush to get gay married before it’s too late. The joke was about as spicy as the mayo that leaks out of Lindsey’s pores when he sweats, but got a polite chuckle from the audience and panel. But after the break, Whoopi came out and said she “got a whole conversation about people misunderstanding the joke” and said, “I should probably never do this show again, if this is what it’s coming to.” My God, she’s this close to saying what we’re all thinking, if she’d only said “we” instead of “I.”
The View is on The Hunt, but they have their work cut out for them. Ever since the Victimhood™ and Nepotism™ MVP, Meghan McCain, left the show back in August after four years of interrupting everyone to say some Bullshit™, the show has been looking for a conservative to permanently replace her. Hopefully with fewer interruptions. But the thing is, in this political landscape they want a co-host who is a conservative and has credibility with Republicans but doesn’t think Joe Biden won the presidency through voter fraud, is against the attack on the Capitol, and won’t ever get caught wearing a QAnon t-shirt. And sources tell Politico that person doesn’t exist.
