HomeTVABC DaytimeThe View Politely Weighs in on Government Shutdown (VIDEO) Jamey Giddens October 10, 2013 4 Comments ABC Daytime's The View recently tackled the first big political scandal du jour since allegedly polarizing former co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar were put out to pasture. Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and guest host Jason Biggs discussed the ramifications of the government shutdown. I have to say, I miss Hasselbeck and Behar's respective hawk and dove takes on things. The chat was much too tame and one-sided. Who wants to watch everyone agree on The View? At least bring back Rosie and her split screen. Watch a clip after the jump! 4 Responses heddalee October 10, 2013 A partial shutdown of the federal government is not a “political scandal.” Please don’t trivialize what isn’t trivial.
