    • Lack of respect

      Joys treatment of Bernie Sanders was absolutely appalling , tried giving this show a chance but this is it . Should be called The Narrow View . And Joy my moms a nurse bitch
    • a panel change-up and revise show

      I would like to see 4 female republicans and Whoopi one day instead of the lop-sided panel it is now. No one that has anything to say other than what Whoopi or Joy like, ever gets a chance to get one sentence out. The panel is so one-sided that I don't really enjoy the show anymore. Maybe you could do a new line up one day a week until the election. WHY did you get rid of Nicole Wallace???? Worse decision you have made. At least she had a brain. It should be called the Whoopi View because that is what we get, when she isn't getting beeped out! Seems to be happening a lot more often lately! How can ABC put up with this behavior? Has anyone else noticed how Whoopi talks over everyone and when they try to say something, she jumps to a commercial?moreless
    • I'm done!!

      I used to respect Whoppi, but have always despised Joy Behar. I've lost all respect for the whole show. The unending trashing of Trump and the pumping up of Hillary have caused me to look into the things they've been saying. I've learned the truth about both Hillary and Trump and, because of the view, I am now going to vote Republican for the first time in my life. Thanks for waking me up and causing me to do in depth reviews of both candidates.moreless
    • A Washed Out Non- Relevent Cast

      The view (no pun -ha) from here is that I am looking at a cast of washed out has-beens holding on for dear life for their last moment of fame. Whoopi and Joy are just a pair of old rabid dogs making a lot of noise with no intelligent connection to anything but hatred of anything good or wholesome and add to that their radical political views, how can ABC, owned by Disney, expect any reasonable people not to be offended or sickened. Add Michelle and Raven and you have to ask yourself is there any intelligent life there. Paula has succumbed to the pressure and becoming a lite version of them. Then they bring on a lawyer(Sonny), hoping to raise the IQ of the show, but they end up with a polished, slick talking Whoopi in disguise. Candace needs to get out before she is contaminated for life. When Barbara was in charge there was class and reasonable discussions most of the time, except during Rosie's tenure, but now ABC shows they have no class nor anything in work to replace the show. Get your act together ABC, and get something that has some reasonable, intelligent content for the viewers as a ladies forum.moreless
    • Hypocritical cast and racist show

      Whoopi is such a liar. I don't believe anything she says. Many times she has said that she doesn't take

      phone calls in the evening, and she turns her phone off Then today when talking about Trump, AGAIN, she said that she gets phone calls in the middle of the night from people in Europe asking her if she needs to move. Paula asked her if people should know better than to call her in the middle of the night, and Whoopi said it's not a problem. Also, today she was mocking in a very aggressive and volatile manner that Hillary should not be asked questions about Bengazi. Whoopi just disregards that 4 Americans were unnecessarily killed in Bengazi, because Hillary did NOT do her job, then Hillary and Obama blamed the killings on a video.

      It was great on an earlier show how Jedediah Bila spoke up against the liberals. When Sonny Hostin compared Trump to Hitler and said that Trump wanting border security is like Hitler's extermination of the Jews, which is a totally stupid statement, Jedediah Bila spoke up and told Sonny, that you can't compare the two, and sarcastic Sonny said, "I just did. Sonny is racist toward whites and she is VERY sarcastic. She is so arrogant and acts like she is perfect. Also, she constantly puffs out her lips when showing disapproval or even when she is just listening. What's with that Sonny?

      Paula has a little more courage when Whoopi isn't there to bully and intimidate her. Whoopi is a very angry person and racist towards whites. Every View show has a very negative commentary about the Republicans especially against Trump, mocking and ridiculing him, now calling him Hitler, while they defend everything about Hillary. I know Trump has made stupid comments, but the cast goes overboard with their rudeness and mockery. It is a very liberal and onesided show, and the producers should have equal representation of both liberals and conservatives. It would make for more interesting conversation between the cast,

      It is so nice when Whoopi isn't there to bully people and act like her opinion is the only one that matters.

      Michelle Collins makes venomous statements against people she doesn't like. Today when Jedediah was speaking against Trump, Whoopi said to let her talk. Then when Jedediah starting speaking against Hillary, Whoopie cut her off and went on a rant about something else. Whoopi is a terrible person.

      Candace says she is a Christian, but she dresses and dances very provacatively, I wonder what the pastor of her church thinks of her sexpot actions.
