Oldheads like me remember the great Elizabeth Hasselback vs. Rosie O’Donnell feud on The View back in the day. We may be looking at an Episode VII-esque reboot. In the blue corner, Joy Behar. Traditionally responsible for most of the shrill stupidity seen weekday mornings (see Joy Behar: ‘Caitlyn Jenner’s Support of Ted Cruz is Like Jews Supporting Hitler…’ and Joy Behar Takes Smugness to New Levels. Claims to Speak For Jesus…).
In the red corner, Meghan McCain. Who I suspect producers expected to be more RINOy than past token conservatives. Jokes on them!
Here’s a clip from today’s show. They were talking about the Rob Porter scandal. McCain wanted a respectful conversation. Behar missed her Metamucil in the morning and just wanted to whine about Republicans. At which point McCain got all honey badger don’t care on her.
“I’m actually going on the Van Jones show on Saturday and I’m looking forward to talking about this in a way that is respectful and not being told that just because I’m a Republican I’m offending you. We are not going to move a needle throwing out platitudes like that, and I would like to have a real conversation about it.”
So do we.
And Meghan McCain is making The View waaaaay more interesting. She’s giving us a reason to suffer through watching clips of the wrinkled saddlebag that is Joy Behar.
