https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMaZk5VOL6s

Stuber is an action comedy film which stars Kumail Nanjiani, Dave Bautista, Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin, Jimmy Tatro, Mira Sorvino, and Karen Gillan, and follows an Uber driver who unwillingly becomes part of a police officer's arrest operation. The film is 45% rotten on RT. It made $11M on opening weekend against a $16M budget.

Drax was his wing man for interview. Whoopi asks Kumail about the quake, he was in LA at the time. Story, cat was confused, story, story. Sunny loved Dave in the movie, said he was so funny. Brings up his WWE days. Said he tried out, failed miserably, retired. Likes that he has a fan-base that remembers him, but also those who had no idea. Kumail explains plot. Guy had lasik so he calls an uber driver. Sunny laments that she uses uber and is polite but she has a low rating, doesn't know why /sadface. Whoopi has a perm driver, because her sight won’t let her drive.

Celebrity reaction post here by saintclaire87

There's really nothing to do but rage.

Panel vents over Tr/mp racist tweet. Lindsey Graham called them communists. Squad: born in Detroit MI, born in Cincinnati OH, born in NY, plus Somali refugee naturalized since age 17. Whoopi says if they have to go, then he has to go. Joy says he needs to be medicated. Sunny is appalled that these are words that she’d hear from a potus. Mam talks about her sister, who wasn’t born here (Bangladesh), calls out Lindsey Graham. While there are legit political criticisms, don’t make it about race or what is truly American.

Over 168.6K people liked that tweet because of course (surprised it wasn’t higher). Joy goes after Lindsey Graham again, plays clip of his flip-flop. The panel uniformly vents, vents, vents. Mam is mad that no elected GOP has come out against his comments. Whoopi wants to know, where are black republicans. She tries but mangles the “...then they came for me” quote.

The poem is supposed to be [Spoiler (click to open)]
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak for me.




Hot Topic Scarlett Johansson Google Alert

Two previous posts here and here by hewontgo

She said something dumb again, then backtracked.

Played an Asian role in Ghost in the Shell, then she backed out of role playing a trans man. Said some stuff. Said some more stuff. Whoopi elaborates on history of white people playing other races or nationalities, before those demo’s of people were allowed to be offered roles. But that isn’t the case anymore. People who didn’t used to have an oppty want that now. Joy mentions movies also need to sell tickets. Sunny talks stats on representation. Not only actors, the writers are responsible. Mam feels Scarlett Johansson Google Alert needs to think more about her words, not the first time she’s gotten blowback. Be more self-aware.



Hot Topic Worst Career Advice



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re8cepHlipI

@AdamMGrant blue check author made a tweet, it went viral. Joy said her agent told her not to take The View job. She didn’t listen, he was fired. He’s also the agent of a very big star (she didn’t name agent or star). Sunny was told by a TV producer to stay in her lane. Her lane was to talk a little about the law, then go home to her children. Mam was told to warm up and smile more. She responded would they say that to a man. Whoopi says she’s gotten so much stupid advice, that she’s forgotten it all. She says best advice to give yourself is to follow your instincts.



Hot Topic Gestapo Raid Distraction



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Hsj0Xy6Kc4

For the reality show hell in which we live, RacistInChief needed a distraction from Epstein and Acosta and flailing polls, so the raids that were threatened but cancelled a few weeks ago were ~promoted again.

Largely didn’t happen, no more so than normal activity. Folks were in the streets all over the country protesting. People were prepared, hunkered down. [There was a tweet for place in Florida, the bar advertised they were a sanctuary from ICE and wives har har, totally punking the absurdity]. Sunny felt it was so cruel, making people feel that way. Canadians make up the most of over-stay visas. Hungarians, Greeks also have high over-stay visas. They’re never mentioned. HE IS RACIST. Joy said if he was interested in rounding people up, it wouldn’t have been announced. Only a dog whistle. Mam says he’s doing the same thing as he did last campaign but on acid.



Hot Topic Aliens Take Out NY Power

J/k
Or maybe 😝
NYC had a blackout Saturday, Manhattan West Side. JLo had to stop during her show at Madison Square Garden. Lots of Broadway shows affected. Joy is petrified during blackouts, biggest fear stuck in elevator with KellyAnne. That’s it. The whole clip.
[Con Ed who runs power for NYC have not said what caused the blackout, it remains a mystery 😉]



Hot Topic Hurricane Barry Louisiana

Short version it was over hyped by media due to Hurricane Katrina catastrophe. Most levees held (good news), lots of flooding and people do need help, but whew thankfully not as bad as expected. It made landfall as Cat 1 then weakened to Tropical Storm.
