  • Obnoxious Nicolle, and Too Liberal of a show

    Nicolle Wallace has an annoying voice and laugh, and she constantly interrupts. I am surprised that the producers of The View let this obnoxiousness continue. Although she supposedly is a Republican, she often agrees with the other cast members who are very liberal. I think the producers of the show, chose her for that reason. I have been watching The View for the last 7 years since I retired. I DVR it, and watch it later in the day, and I have enjoyed watching it. However, this season with the new cast , I am very disappointed. I think it is terrible how the cast supports Michael Brown, even after all the factual evidence has been presented to the Grand Jury, and the Grand Jury made their decision on that evidence. It is totally one sided. Today The View's cast commented on how great it was that some of the Rams came out on the field raising their hands in support of Michael Brown, when in fact according to testimonies and evidence, Michael Brown did NOT surrender to the officer. These Rams players along with Michael Brown, have total disregard and disrespect for the police.

    Also, Rosie O. is totally obsessed with Frozen which is quite weird, and she constantly talks about her kids. Rosie P. is obsessed with her Latino heritage, often talking about her heritage and "Latinos", and she has an annoying voice and laugh. How much worse can it get?

    Today The View showed a RERUN regarding the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases. Discussion was at the beginning of the show and towards the end with Nancy Grace. They are all so anti police. The producers have many shows to rerun, yet they choose this rerun apparently to continue to incite the public.moreless
  • Nicole and Rosie P farewell hopefully

    I don't watch the view anymore I use to love it Rosie P and Nicole have to go. Who decided on them they are awful. With so many talented people that is the best they came up with; I actually could tolerate McCarthy more God forgive me hope they change those two hosts soon I miss the show
  • Whoopi, has Hollywood made you unrealistic?

    Last week, Whoopi said she did not believe this is a racist country. She is entitled to her beliefs, but she lost my respect.
  • How does the View continue to stay on the air ?

    With all the T V shows that has been canceled lately, how does this show stay on?

  • Wishing Whoopie Would Go AWay

    I will not watch this show until Whoopie Goldberg is off it. She is the most wishy-washy boring person ever. I was so happy when Rosie O'Donnell returned but even she couldn't make up for Miss Goldberg.
