  • Nicolle's obnoxious voice and laugh

    1.0
    Nicolle Wallace is obnoxious with her voice and her laugh, and she constantly interrupts. She often talks (brags) about her child. On one of the shows she talked about a woman who told her to quiet her son down while they were on a fight, and Nicolle referred to the woman as a cow, and she also called the woman a bitch. She also said that she felt like punching the woman in the face. All this tells us what kind of a person Nicolle Wallace is. She is supposedly a Republican, yet she often sides with the liberals on the show. Maybe that is why she was hired. While watching Must Have Mondays a while back, Nicolle constantly interrupted the host presenting the items. She has a high pitched strident obnoxious voice. Whoopi is always playing the race card. She so often talks about race issues, yet she so makes an issue and jokes about her race. She is so narrow minded about so many things and refuses to listen to the other side of an issue. Rosie Perez constantly mentions her Latino heritage and seems obsessed with it. Raven Symone walks out on stage shaking her body with her nose in the air acting so arrogant. Also, she rolls her eyes and makes rude gestures as she acts immature.

    The cast was very anti police when they had discussions about Michael Brown. Without hearing the facts and evidence they thought the officer was in the wrong. Also, when The View had reruns during the Christmas season, they played the rerun of the show with the discussion about Michael Brown. Why would they play that rerun again. Maybe to incite the public. There were many other reruns to play. While the cast discussed the case, they thought it was so wonderful that some of the Rams players went out on the field with their hands up, when in fact the Rams had not heard all the evidence, and it was found out from honest witnesses and other evidence that Brown never did raise his hands to surrender. The View should have shown facts of the case, instead of discussing what the media was reporting.

    Whoppi supports Bill Cosby, yet she makes fun and mocks Conservative and Republican politicians. The cast seems to support ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I am not saying that I like Donald Trump, however he is correct that we have an illegal immigration problem. There are immigration laws in our country, and people are to come here legally like millions have for decades. If you come illegally you are already a criminal. I think the producers should have a cast of at least 2 conservatives and 2 liberals. It is way too liberal of a show, and a "turn off", to those who have more moderate to conservative ideals.moreless

    I have watched the show for years and stopped for awhile when Whoopie and Rosie ODonell had their scream fest over race. I started back after Rosie left just to see if there was any change and guess what ? It Is Worse ! I think Whoppie is just rude and we all know she don't care! What a remark to make to your audience! And the Cosby revelation ,really ,you're going to act like you just saw the light ! Now about Raven ( Big Mistake ) eyes rolling ,lip smacking etc. She has no respect for (Old School) advice ! And now you put chips on the table so we really can't understand what they are saying !! I'm done with this circus ! I hate the way it makes me feel after only 15 minutes ! It is now the Whoopies View and I know --You Don't Care !!! The Talk is a much better show (Classy Ladies)moreless
  • Way to go Nicholle

    1.0
    So glad when Nicholle said she was fired. Unlike Rosie Perez who made it sound like she made the choice to leave.. This show is ridiculous with their revolving door of hosts. They need to convince Rosie O'Donnell to come back and replace Whoopi, keep Nicholle, bring Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar back. I like Raven Simone but this program is not a good fit for her. They need one conservative on the show and that would be Nicholle. She is able to state her views but not blindly defend anything and everything that is the popular view to have. She can see all sides of issues realistically.moreless
  • Liberals

    1.0
    I think the show is too frigging liberal. It's all good to talk about topics but y'all's opinion on things suck. I know you will say if you don't like it don't watch it. I watch every once in a while hoping they will get someone like Elizabeth Hasselbeck back on that has the balls to speak up and not kiss Whoopies ass. Why do you have only liberals on there? There should be equal amounts of people from both sides. Nicole is supposed to be on the other side but is wimpy and scared to speak up against the liberals.moreless
  • Like Watching The Titanic Sink!

    1.0
    Okay, so I just can't take it anymore, not one more stinking show and I do mean stinking! "The View," They should rename the show Whoopi's View! I know she doesn't care what people think, she's made that abundantly clear several times, it's like a broken record. I'm so glad she doesn't care because neither do we anymore. Her opinion is the only one that matters, at least to her anyway. I've loved every single thing Whoopi Goldberg has done, up until now.

    I've watched this show since day one and today I couldn't watch more than ten minutes of it and pulled it from our DVR! Done, good-bye, it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion! Moving on to NIcole who's head is so far up Whoopi's "cushion" she can no longer see the light of day. If she kisses her butt anymore it will become an entirely different show. I don't think I ever agreed with anything Elizabeth H. said when she was on the show, however I respected the fact that she had an opinion and was not afraid to express it, after all I told myself over and over, that the show after all was called The View! Nicole, remember when you HAD an opinion that was your own?

    Moving on to Michelle, the first thing that comes to mind is, why? Why, why, why? The the person who hired her for the show, what were you thinking, it's almost as bad as bringing Rosie O'Donnell back. Ridiculous comments, mostly trying to just be funny, emphasis on trying. Hasn't had a thing to contribute since her first appearance on the show. Awkward and uncomfortable to watch. I dare you to try and make sense of anything she says. Raven, nothing against Raven and all but really? The View? She's stuck at age 16, somewhere between, what do I want to be when I grow up and will someone teach me about government, history, current events, and well how about just life? Or how about being a professional when speaking to a guest? Shushing a guest when she's trying to explain HER opinion is not being a such a great host on a show, once again, called The View! The only, and I do mean the only saving grace on that show is Rosie Perez and she's leaving! That's because an intelligent, kind, supportive, understanding, talented, woman with an opinion can't survive with the rest of them. She continually tries to voice her opinion and is never heard! Silly Rosie thought she would be able to speak and be heard. She is amazing, love to listen to what she has to say on many subjects whether I agree or not, her delivery is never hurtful, opinionated or bordering on the ridiculous.

    I bid you farewell bottom of the barrel The View, now I know why shows go off the air way before they hit rock bottom. You missed your window of opportunity for that ladies. Run Forest, run!moreless
