Joy Behar calls on Louis CK to stop punching down

“There’s so many targets to punch up to,” Behar said of CK mocking Parkland shooting survivors, on this morning's edition of The View. “There’s Trump, there’s everything going on in the world, there’s Brexit if you want to go there. There’s a million things to go after. Why would you pick kids who are suffering because of gun violence? Pick the NRA, don’t go after the victim. Although maybe he sees himself as a victim so he identifies with the victimhood. But it’s pathetic to see a comedian pity himself, not learn from his mistakes. Somebody as brilliant as Louis C.K. should know better. He needs to find out what’s funny about what he did and turn himself in and stop punching down! That is my advice to him.”

Nashville Christmas Parade drops Kid Rock as grand marshal after he called Joy Behar a "b*tch"
Parade organizers have replaced Kid Rock with Waffle House hero James Shaw Jr. after the singer referred to The View co-host as a "b*tch" on Fox & Friends Friday morning. The move was made after Nashville's mayor may skip the parade due to Kid Rock's involvement. “When you have the grand marshal of what’s labeled Nashville’s Christmas parade saying hateful things on national television, the mayor obviously does not want to be included in an event with someone like that,” said a spokesperson for the mayor.

Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy immediately apologized when an apparently intoxicated Kid Rock said, "people need to calm down, get a little less politically correct and I would say you know, love everybody. Except, screw that Joy Behar b*tch.” Hours later, Behar responded to the musician's slur on The View. “Well, all I can say is, this bitch and these bitches will be happy to have you on the show and have a beer,” Behar said. “Come on down.” Meanwhile, Fox & Friends alum and new View co-host Abby Huntsman praised Doocy for his quick response. “I thought the way he handled it in that moment to apologize and say this should not be said,” said Huntsman.

The View's Joy Behar on Julie Chen: "I think it's going to be hard for her to go back to The Talk"
The View panelists this discussed Chen, Les Moonves and her "Julie Chen Moonves" sign-off from last night's Big Brother at the top of this morning's show. Behar questioned whether Chen could return to The Talk. "I think it's going to be hard for her to go back to The Talk," said Behar. "What topics can they do? They can't talk about the #MeToo movement without her coming clean about her husband." Behar compared Chen to Hillary Clinton sticking up for President Bill Clinton after he denied having an affair with Monica Lewinsky, saying it would even be hard to talk about shows like Real Housewives or anything relationship related. ALSO: The Talk avoided talking about Chen's "Julie Chen Moonves" sign-off on Friday.

Source: Entertainment Weekly
Macdonald's press tour to promote his new Netflix talk show Norm Macdonald Has a Show has turned into an endless apology tour as the comedian appeared on The View this morning. “It’s always bad when you have to apologize for the apology,” a miserable-looking Macdonald said in apologizing for telling Howard Stern yesterday that “you’d have to have Down syndrome” not to feel sorry for victims of sexual abuse. “There used to be a word we would all say to mean stupid that we wouldn’t say any more," he said. "You know the word I’m talking about? Stupidly I was about to say that word and I stopped and (wondered) what the right word was to say, and I said a different word that was equally (offensive). I realized at that moment I said something unforgivable…The remark I made about people with Down syndrome is terrible.” Joy Behar asked him about his comments in The Hollywood Reporter dwelling on the hardships faced by Roseanne Barr and Louis CK. "That doesn't compute," Behar said. "Can you explain yourself a little?" Macdonald explained that he was saying that their victims didn't go through this. "This particular event," he said. "Of course, the victims have gone through worse than that. But am I going to get a victim to phone Roseanne?” Towards the end of the interview when Whoopi Goldberg brought up his Netflix show, Macdonald said, “I feel a little weird plugging it at this point.”

President Trump's grievances with Disney CEO Bob Iger have to do with Jemele Hill, Joy Behar, Keith Olbermann and Kathy Griffin
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said today the White House isn't defending Roseanne Barr's "inappropriate" comments. Rather, she said Trump's tweet this morning about not getting an apology from Iger over "the HORRIBLE statements" said about him was an attempt to point out media bias against him. “The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying the most horrible things about this president and nobody addresses it,” Sanders said. “Where was Bob Iger’s apology to White House staff for (ESPN’s) Jemele Hill calling the President, and anyone associated with him, a white supremacist? To Christians around the world, for Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness? Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the President on The View after a photo showed her holding President Trump’s decapitated head? And, where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the President as a Nazi, even expanding Olbermann’s role after that attack against the President’s family? This is the double standard that the President is speaking about." ALSO: Jimmy Kimmel mocks Trump's tweet demanding an apology from Iger.

Meghan McCain's addition has made The View compelling thanks to her constant fighting with Joy Behar
"When McCain and Behar fight, there’s no one you agree with and no one you adamantly disagree with, because both sides are normally a little wrong," says Kayla Cobb. "There’s just a lot of yelling, gas-lighting, and confusing arguments. It’s like watching the most uncomfortable parts of a Thanksgiving dinner screaming match."
