HomeTVTalk ShowsThe View Wants to Hold a Daytime Republican Debate Luke Kerr November 1, 2011 Talk Shows, The View 9 Comments The ladies of The View have grilled politicians on their couch, argued the latest hot topics at their table and now they want to host a Republican presidential debate. According to The Huffington Post, “A spokesman for "The View" confirmed that requests have been sent to Republican campaigns but declined to speak further about any interest so far.” Just how would a Republican debate on The View work? Would Barbara Walters be the moderator? Would Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd participate? If they did, candidates would surely prepare themselves for hostile questioning from Goldberg and Behar. Hasselbeck, The View’s conservative voice on the panel, would probably feel at home at such a debate, but who would have guessed the one-time Survivor competitor might one day be involved in a Republican presidential debate? Do you believe Republican candidates will agree to debate on The View?

With Whoopie she can decypher when she is in comedian mode and in political mood. Barbara say no more she is pro Elisabeth—I disagree with her on a lot but she has become a critical thinker and good researcher Sheree is not critical thinker. She sometimes does not make sense or she has opinions that are based on convoluted logic. So Sheree and Joy should sit it out. I can actully see the other three really being good at questioning any politician Republican or Democrat. The View reaches a huge group of voters including me.

Maybe they will ask Bakman her opinion on abortion in between dishing the latest tweets of the week.

Log in to Reply giogio November 1, 2011 Tealita – made me laugh. Uggg – you are so right about her. She is offensive. They are all giving me the creeps lately. Since they were eating burgers and such with the people from the CHEW – I dont watch anymore since the mass murder of our soaps. Log in to Reply tealita November 1, 2011 giogio–Thanks. I misspelled, “plans,” though. I refuse to watch anything on abc dt except GH and OLTL. And I rarely watch anything on their primetime networks, either.

I enjoy “The View”–with the exception of that foolish hag, Elizabeth Hasslebitch, but I find it disgusting that they are trying to shove Republican agendas down everyone’s throats. Good thing I have a strong gag reflex……….and a fresh set of batteries in my remote control. Besides, they are all a bunch of idiots anyway, for the most part (both Democrats and Republicans!) and I don’t trust ANY of them How do you know that a politician is lying? Because his or her lips are moving!!! :Sp :Sp :Sp :Sp Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott November 2, 2011 Only time I watched The Few was when they did the AMC tribute on its last day. And that’s all folks… Log in to Reply glowery November 2, 2011 I am a died in the wool Republican and proud of it, but any Republican who would sit down for and interview (and I use that term loosely) with this panel of harpies, doesn’t have the sense to be President. That would go for any Democrat also. And if anyone here is influenced on how they would vote because of ANYTHING this panel of woman would say, then you don’t have the sense to even be voting. Make up your own mind, do your own research, stand by your own convictions, just don’t be a sheep and let someone else lead you to the slaughter. America did that in the last election and let me just ask, is your life any better? Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
