Watching ABC / Disney’s daytime chat show The View is like opening up a copy of Vanity Fair.

With pretty faces and intriguing product placement, the glossy magazine’s slick presentation builds a sense of anticipation for celebrity interviews and feature stories.

Then, however, we find the poisonous tropes on inside pages, reeking of partisan hatred. And in this case, perhaps I should say poisonous dopes.

Yes, I AM going there.

Starring the elderly Joy Behar, liberal activist Whoopi Goldberg (aka Caryn Johnson) Paula Faris (who?), Jedidiah Bila, formerly of Fox News and well, sorry, but I lost count during all the turnover since Barbara Walters, (the husband stealer, google it) departed the show.

Seated around a table, hot coffee poised nearby, the five gals of The View are ready to have at whatever topics of the day spring to mind.

It’s meant to be a casual look at their lives and priorities, except that is all crap.

More on that in a moment, but first, full disclosure: I worked for ABC / Disney for over 25 years (through different ownership changes) so when I take shots at its production, talent and direction, I’m peeing inside my own tent.

One more thing: I stopped watching The View not long after it debuted in 1997. At first, I was intrigued with the idea of women talking about things that matter to other women.

It didn’t take long before I discovered that they were talking to and about LIBERAL women.

And that is the problem, according to TV reviewer Barbara Jane, who noted “how disgraceful [the show is] and no real consideration for bringing the country to a higher place. They are playing to their left-wing base. Surprised that is enough to keep on the air. But nothing surprises me anymore. I thought the hatred and sour grapes would end but media, Hollywood, late night talk shows, cable news besides Fox leaves a lot to be desired.”

Freeway Kat48, another Internet critic, was only a tiny bit less hostile: “I fast forward through the first 30 minutes of The View. I can ALMOST stomach that show. I wrote a letter to the Disney Corporation basically telling them that this forum contradicts the family values that Disney has stood for all these many years and that a good majority of country doesn’t ascribe to these women’s views; but then when they recently honored Whoopie with another award, I realized that my letter probably was put through the shredder. What a bunch of rotten hypocrites!”

This hen cackling does not represent ALL women. The programming geniuses at ABC Disney treat us like a monolithic liberal rain barrel that they shower dogma and vitriol about President Trump, his administration, the people who support him, the military, global warming, birth control, abortion, homosexuality, transgender, higher taxes and did I mention-how-much-they-all-hate-Donald-Trump?

Making millions of dollars a year, living inside their liberal bubble of Manhattan, View panelists don’t have the first damn clue what is happening to the middle class in America.

We worry about the future of our children who attend crappy schools, many in dangerous neighborhoods, while they finance the very finest private education for their lovely little darlings, all of whom have healthcare that their mommys can afford.

I am really, really trying hard to not throw shade personally on Behar, Goldberg and the other no-name people I have never heard of (and no snide cuts about their make-up, hair or plastic surgery, although I am dangerously close to doing so.)

And I haven’t even discussed their guests like Senator Bernie Sanders. Wow. The socialist Democrat was on recently and and a lot of women were very upset because Sanders was “complaining about people going after politician’s families.”

Really? Really, Senator Sanders? The Democrats, liberal media, and Hollywood go after all of President Trump’s family, including a 12-year old child. That’s while trying to paint a Russian conspiracy rap on Don, Jr. AND the cranks and crackpots of the Left insinuating an incestous relationship between Ivanka and her Dad.

Nope, I’ve had enough of The View and I know the rest of America has as well.

I think I’ll just turn off the TV. I find the world is a lot nicer place. Besides when I listen to the conversation, it sounds like English, but I can’t understand a word they are saying.
