To the Ladies of The View…

WOW! I missed that episode of ‘The View’. But what’s new? I miss every episode of ‘The View’ because I choose to.

  2. I stopped dealing with the View for similar reasons but on another topic, this season they’ve hit a new low with the ignorance from Raven Symone and beyond stupid comments from Joy Behar. I used to like the different viewpoints when they were actually informed viewpoints.
