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.

Meghan McCain: I contributed to this country's polarization by saying I "hate" Hillary Clinton on The View
Back in July, McCain said "I call her 'Crooked Hillary'" because "I hate Hillary Clinton." This morning on The View, after bombs were sent to Clinton and several prominent Democrats, McCain expressed regret for her words. “I said I hate Hillary Clinton and I called her Crooked Hillary and it’s one of the things I regret doing because I contributed on television," she said. "Now this is not saying that I agree with her. I have many vast differences of opinion on philosophy and ideology and I didn’t think she was a great candidate, but hate is not a word that should be coming out of my mouth on television about someone of a different political persuasion.”

"He started asking me a lot of personal questions and I was stumbling and fumbling and not really knowing what to say,” Douglas told The View co-hosts. “And that, of course, led to him, you know, jumping on top of me and putting his tongue down my throat and pinning me down on the couch.” Douglas said she didn't report Moonves because she thought of him "as a father figure."

Daytime TV had a range of responses to Chen's exit from The Talk. "I think it would be hard to be on that show and if you couldn't share so I sorta understood," Hoda Kotb said on Today. "She'll be missed on that show," Gayle King, Chen's colleague, said on CBS This Morning. On The View, Whoopi Goldberg wished Chen well, while Abby Huntsman said: "What I would love for her to do is to use that as an opportunity to be transparent, to be real, to talk to people about what maybe she's been through." Kathie Lee Gifford expressed sympathy for Chen on the 10am. Today show. "It always bugs me when they say the humiliated so-and-so. I'm capable of humiliating myself…She's not humiliated," said Gifford. "She's heartbroken. There's a big difference. You know what I'm saying?" Meanwhile, Wendy Williams questioned Chen's teary goodbye: "It's nice to know she watches 'Hot Topics,' where I said she should quit because she is a distraction," Wendy said. "She ended up crying towards the end but in my mind, those weren't tears because of the crew. In my opinion, she wasn't crying because of the cast and the crew and the staff and stuff. She was crying because now she has to go back to that compound and deal with that man and try to keep her son out of it. And there is no compound to me that is big enough." ALSO: Chen taped tonight's Big Brother episode on Tuesday, the same day she announced her Talk departure.

The View's Joy Behar on Julie Chen: "I think it's going to be hard for her to go back to The Talk"

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.”
