The View: Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Impeachapalooza, Hot Topics

Panel is Whoopi, Abby, Joy, and Sunny.
Meghan is on vacation, back Wednesday.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon

Benny and Mikey are promoting their film The Current War

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
Joy talks she was just in London, and went to Betchley Park, talks Enigma Code, re/BC previous film, Alan Turing The Imitation Game. Topic for both of them, they’re both climate change activists. MS took his daughter to see Greta Thunberg. Talks joining protests at Trafalgar Square. Joy says some are calling those in the entertainment business hypocritical. BC says sure, he lobbied to do the interview by webchat, talks details of what dire circumstances we’re facing. Felt the media wanted to attack the messenger rather than listen to the message.

Whoopi talks MS being on Broadway with Audra McDonald. Moves to the film, talks Edison vs Westinghouse. They talk the history of the film, the men’s rivalry. Gets a little science-y. Sunny says in the battle of getting the technology out to the masses, it resulted in (example) the invention of the electric chair. BC says the heart of the film is when you work together. People revere Edison but he was actually a grouchy puss. Sunny brings up The Shape of Water, says MS first film was Groundhog Day.

Fun fact: The film premiered at TIFF in 2017 (!) then it was tabled because it was previously under The Weinstein Company. Another distributor picked it up, and it will be released this weekend 25 October in US.

Hot Topic #Impeachapalooza is Dumber Godfather© Stupider Watergate™

Mulvaney recap. Plays clip. He tries to say he didn’t say what he said. Abby says he’s an idiot. Nobody else on Sunday shows could defend Mulvaney. Abby talks about TRE45ON walking back Doral*. GOP Senators are pushing back. Leaving troops in Syria for whatever reason, too late, the people have been assaulted and or murdered. Day late, dollar short. Joy said they did know they locked up parents and separated children. One atrocity leads to another. Whoopi says all the GOP should’ve stood up and said No re/Syria.

Sunny adds many GOP admitted to not reading Mueller report, despite 10 clear incidents of obstruction of justice, border separation wasn’t enough, then Mulvaney. Very Orwellian, from book 1984 The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. Gaslighting 101. Abby brings up Romney, Joy says great, whoever he is now (haha). Joy brings up blue collar workers in FL who need medical and dental care, but they’ll vote for Tr/mp because they don’t want others to get access. Cut off nose to spite their face. Whoopi says the economy isn’t working well for the average person, all they can do is pay bills, not live. Abby wants to know why this isn’t a debate topic. Whoopi talks economy trends, Joy brings up deficit, the convo went nowhere after that.

*TRE45ON planned to have the next G7 @ his own resort in June 2020 which is a huge emoluments violation. His resort continues to lose money, that particular one has bedbugs, it's low season, claims he wasn't going to profit, blah blah. He caved. Even today, he is still talking to reporters and on twitter about baby fussy temper tantrum, goddddd this f/cking loser.

Hot Topic You Know Who is a Russian Favorite

Plays podcast clip and shows the quote. Hillary doesn’t name check Tulsi, but she does body slam Jill Stein. Sunny says SHE WARNED US ALL EVERYTHING WAS TRUE. Tulsi is polling 1-2% but still in the race, covered by Fox, endorsed by David Duke, never actually renounced the Russian support (20 bot sites). Joy says, She called Hillary a war monger [which is weird because she uses her war experience?], but doesn’t deny the claim. Hillary isn’t going to run, so what is Tulsi trying to do. GOP knows they can’t win without Russia or voter suppression so Tulsi is a perfect foil. Abby says Hillary is clueless and if you’re a Democrat there is a lot to like about Tulsi. Sunny says um she’s tracking 1-2%, no they don’t like her. Joy brings up that Hillary was right about Jill but we didn’t know the extent of Jill until after the election [has Jill given back all those recount refunds?], with Tulsi now we know in advance. Whoopi says free speech, and if something’s put out there, you got to prove it (right or wrong). [Fun fact = candidates with most Russian bot farm support = Sanders, Yang, Tulsi]

. Hillary didn’t name Tulsi in her remarks so lol @ Tulsi
. Tulsi had a twitter tantrum @ Hillary
. Booker had the best reply to Tulsi
. Tulsi then blocked Booker after his reply 😲 😃
. Hillary replied to Booker looool

Whoopi has the hiccups and talks about her bra. Idk. Plays clip. Meghan is in her feelings about how tough it’s been since she’s been pregnant and gave birth. Joy wonders about nannies, Abby says they don’t really have an entourage. Abby says people assume their life is one way, but no one really knows. No one ever asks the moms if they’re ok. Abby talks mom drain. Shows photo of her as a baby, relates to her children, appreciates her parents.

Documentary with Harry and Megan, which also highlights their trip to Africa, will air on ABC Wednesday @ 10PM.

Hot Topic Chris Pratt Teases Wife About Cooking

See related post here by saintclaire87

Pratt [shared photo of a burnt bagel bite that looked like a scallop] wrote Proud of my darling for trying to cook tonight. Did it go well? No. No it did not. Not at all. To quote Rocky Balboa, “It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get up... and keep moving forward.” As you can tell from the lump of coal in the center of the plate, this bagel bite never stood a chance. I honestly simply cannot imagine what went wrong here. Pretty simple. Microwave. 2 minutes. Maybe she thought it said 2 hours. But I want to commend her for her effort. This is a big step babe. Proud of you.

Katherine replied back Looks like my plan to just have you do the cooking is working out very well 🤞🤷🏻‍♀️😉

Abby says the others are great cooks. She put toast in the oven and remembered it the next day. Joy doesn’t think cooking has any bearing on a happy marriage, gives examples with her family. Sunny says she loves to cook, it’s one of her love languages, thinks she partially snagged Manny with good cooking, Joy says No it was her boobs 😲. Whoopi doesn’t like to cook. The panel chastises Joy about (not) getting her lasagna. Whoopi tells story about gift giving, she wanted scratch-offs, Joy wouldn’t do that, so she made lasagna, Whoopi said it was the best ever, so that’s how the tradition started.

Ontd are you an unwitting Russian favorite?
