    • Quit changing the rules for Hillary

      5.0
      Men vote for men all the time because they don't believe women can be or should be leaders. Isn't that voting based on genitailia? There is no such thing as a perfect candidate so stop trying to disqualify Hillary because she's not perfect. Ask yourself this question, Are all generations are the same? I don't think they are. There are some black youth that don't grasp the struggles their parents went through for them, the same could be said for Latino youth not fully understanding the sacrifices of their parents. I believe a lot of the young women today don't fully understand or appreciate what women like Gloria Steinem and others went through in the 60's and 70's for gains in equality for women. Look at Sanders support, he has more men supporting him, aren't they supporting him because of his genitailia? Why is it men can vote for men and that's not even questioned but let women vote for women and they are questioned about it? It's because it's a strategy to put doubt in the minds of women about their motivation all the while the men are doing the same thing and it's not even questioned. Obama took money from Wall Street and he had PAC and he explained it was because the GOP had them so he wasn't going to run with one hand tied behind his back. Now Hillary is doing the same thing for the same reason and Sanders says it's because she is selling influence. If it was OK for Obama why is it wrong for Hillary? Is Sanders saying Obama sold influence? The same can be said for the email server, other secretary of state have had personal servers why aren't they being investigated? This is all an over all strategy to stop Hillary and Sanders is part of it along with all of the GOP. If the rules are different for Hillary only because of her sex than what's wrong with a woman voting as one of your host put it, ' voting because of your genitailia'?moreless
    • Forget Michelle!

      10
      Michelle is so busy trying to be funny ... she often misses the point and doesn't get the laugh she is aiming for. She speaks so fast that I rarely understand her attempts at standup comedy. .I do not think her attitude and manner is a good fit for The View.

      Please, no more of Sherri Shepherd. I try to appreciate her humor, but there is nothing funny about her anger against the world. There are countless other talented, beautiful women of color and we would like to see them get a chance on The View.

      Whoopi is a bully, has no class whatever, and even though I respect her awarded performances - The View is not meant to be her private soapbox for racial inequality. Her language is crude and upsetting, and she is not respected or liked as much as she believes she is. Go home.

      Paula often has an attitude, seems to enjoy poking Whoopi for a violent reaction, and does not belong on an entertainment show.

      Candace is too cute, too dimpled and petiite, yet is opinionated without knowing how to be a viable member of the panel. Being a Christian is a personal matter, and I do not appreciate her preaching

      Joy is Joy ... likable, intelligent, but becoming less funny and attentive as the years go by..

      Raven is not representative of the American youth of today. She is all about herself and pushing boundaries for no apparent intelligent reason other than to focus attention on herself. Lose her.

      Actually, that being said ... I'm going to stick with the much better The Talk.moreless
    • NO CLASS!

      1.5
      What a horrible show! No class whatsoever. Why did you bring Joy back, when she doesn't agree with a guest she cuts them off! What in the world are you thinking? Either take the show off the air or revamp the whole show again. Well maybe not just end the show get it over with.
    • Stop Bashing Christians

      4.0
      Today they were talking about how people who are opotomistic are depressed when what they wanted to happen didn't. well Raven took that opportunity to say that you need to make things happen instead of trusting in a power in the sky to make it happen she needs to shut her mouth because she doesn't know anything
    • The shirt that Joy Baher has for Mr. Carson.

      3.0
      The insult that Joy has but out for Mr. Carson is sad for the View. A blue shirt is like Joy putting on a bikini and then saying how good she looks!!!! Mr. Ben Carson deserves a white shirt ladies.
