  • RAVEN!!!!!

    She has single handedly brought The View down to levels where it is unimaginable. Every time she opens her mouth she makes no sense. She may be the new generation, but I am guessing that ABC could do so much better than her. She's a joke. No class. Probably doesn't even know what that word means. Whoopi has gotten so much better (thank goodness, it was touch and go there for a long while). I am getting used to Michelle. She has gotten much better. Love Joy, always did. Very intelligent. And Paula is OK. (much better than Elizabeth). They need to bring Sherri back! Then they would be set. And as for Candace, she definitely needs to go. Everything about her is annoying. I realize Paula is political too (different views from myself), but she doesn't come across so harsh like Candace. Don't get me wrong, I love a political debate. Sorry for the rant.

    Today's show mentioned Obama and what he has done to change our country. I his great Obama healthcare plan. My daughter and son in law are a young couple small children

    They both work and my daughter is going for her second college degree. She was told when she was sick and seeking insurance,not to go to the Obama healthcare website because she would not receive help. I don't care what the race of our president is,but when is one going to really change our healthcaremoreless

    Raven Symone is single handedly taking the VIew even further down a hole. She actually thinks it's ok to say, "I can't express myself with words sometimes so, you know, just try and understand what I'm thinking ok guys" Huh??? Who the hell put her there in the first place? This is a show where people articulate their views, so if you can't master the English language, you need to go! She is too ignorant to know how to act when speaking to presidential candidates like D Trump and Dr Carson. She talks right over them, making raised eyebrow faces like a 3rd grader at Ben Carson yesterday as he is giving answers! She is too dumb to know how dumb she is. And an insult to what Barbara Walters created 19 years ago. What's worse, you can tell no one is telling her to wise up as every day she feels freer to act even more arrogant than the day before. It reminds me of watching the 'held back' girls table at middle school lunch time and it is not at all entertaining or appropriate.moreless
  • Raven needs to go. Now.

    I can't stand anything about her. I used to like this show, and I like Whoopi and Joy, but I can't watch it anymore with Raven in the mix. I don't know which is worse: Looking at her or listening to her, but it is all bad. I wonder what the other hosts actually think of her, if I were them I would seriously be considering why I would be on the same show with trash like that. It's insulting to even watch her.

    There are so many other people in her age demographic that could represent with class, edge, intelligence and depth on the show.

    ABC: Get your head out of your ass and get rid of her. That will start to solve your ratings problem. Do America a favor. Thank god there are other channels to watch!moreless
