Whoopi takes down Meghan in the Impeachapalooza section third clip /cheers/
Robert De Niro
Robert De Niro is promoting his film The Irishman
Two more clips and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
[Putting aside his Oscar© roles, I also liked him in The Intern with AnnE Hathaway 😃]
Whoopi starts with his political perspective. RD says we know T45 is not likely to get convicted in the Senate, but we must go through this because he has to be held in check and take that punishment and pay the consequences. Abby starts to say, even if (election impact)... RD says we don’t have time for that, he did something wrong. Joy reverts back to his filmography of characters, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull. RD talks about (paraphrasing) what an inhumane cretin T45 is. He's a lowlife, and T45 knows it. He’s always projecting, what awful things he says about others, he thinks about himself. Meghan MyFather™ blah blah. RD says if his kids did what T45 kids did, he wouldn’t want them to be related, and he’d have a conversation, he’s fortunate that his kids are nothing like this trash family. T45 jokes about 3rd term, King for life, but T45 isn't joking, he really wants that. The bigger sting isn’t impeachment, but voters getting rid of him. RD says don’t be apathetic, get out there and VOTE.
Abby loved Meet the Parents brings up the parody sketch when RD played Mueller on SNL, they chat about how that happened. Sunny brings up The Irishman, says it’s epic, a trifecta of him, Pacino, Pesci. It took over a decade to get developed. RD explains that evolution. Abby says her family is promoting the film to all her other family.
Meghan brings up RD working 9x with Scorcese. RD talks about his professional and personal relationship. Whoopi and RD were both in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Whoopi asks about the Netflix vs cinema debate. RD says it was better to watch on a big screen in a theatre. RD says but it’s different now because (home) screens are bigger. RD read an article where a woman with kids could only watch it on her phone, sent an apology to Scorcese, chuckles. Joy asks about de-aging technique. Whoopi likes how you could see how time passed. His younger eyes looked blue (his eyes are green). Abby says he’s getting a SAG lifetime achievement award, congrats. RD makes a plug for the Anonymous book. Their insights seem pretty damn good. Whoopi thinks it might someday be a good movie to make.
Hot Topic #Impeachapalooza is Dumber Godfather© Stupider Watergate™
[Meghan should be fired, do us all a favor ABC. Third clip @ 1:30 mark]
Full House vote to proceed on Impeachment is expected Wednesday. The GOP controlled Senate is trash, openly admitting that they’ve made up their mind (no surprise), and following the lead of Herr Fuhrer, instead of operating on their oath to the Constitution. Plays clip. Even if they’ve secretly determined their position, to publicly say they’re not even going to consider evidence is unconscionable. Meghan says blah blah. Sunny went back to her days in front of juries, looked up the oath Senators take. Reads the oath. Expresses her dismay about their derelict of duty. Whoopi says when it’s your job, you need to hold yourself to the proper standard. Meghan says blah blah. Abby says they’ve lost her, because they won’t even acknowledge that something bad happened. Says she needs more proof, gives example. Her whole weekend was consumed by T45, he represents the opposite of what we’re taught about human beings. Lie, cheat, bully, he gets away with all of it.
Whoopi brings up Clinton comparison. Meghan interrupts. Whoopi listened to Graham, it’s the exact opposite of what he argued against Clinton. The Constitution isn’t flexible, follow the rules. It’s more than hypocrisy. Meghan says she hangs around conservatives and they think this is partisan. Brings up Clinton, again.
Joy elaborates about Clinton, who did testify and give evidence under oath, whereas T45 refuses any participation. Biden isn’t being investigated, so why would he testify, it’s not relevant. Sunny talks more both-sides because, again, 27 Senators who voted against Clinton are still in office, who are refusing to vote against T45 against far more egregious acts against our country. MEGHAN GOES FULL BRAT. Overtalks Sunny and interrupts. Whoopi steps in.
W: Girl, please stop talking, please stop talking right now, ‘cause you know what
M: No problem, I won’t talk the rest of the show
W: I’m ok with that. I’m ok with that. If you’re going to behave like this.
M: I’m not behaving like anything
W: You are, you’re talking over, yes, but what you’re doing

Hot Topic Hallmark Messed Up
See related post here by hewontgo and another related post here by brennans
Hallmark needs media training. Outraged viewers threatened to boycott after Hallmark pulled ads from Zola that featured same sex marriage. Ads were originally pulled over conservative backlash, then the majority kicked in, Hallmark reverted. Brings up previous era opposing interracial couples, where is the line drawn. Abby talks about reasons she left Mormon church, if you’re supportive of family values, then you should be able to love who you love. Joy mentions talking about (same sex marriage) to her 8 yr old grandson, he’s like Yeah I know (eg kids get it and don't care). Sunny says similar things about her Catholic faith. Glad that Hallmark reversed course. Didn’t like they were persuaded by 1M Moms (actually about 12, but who’s counting) and got it pulled to begin with. Whoopi says things about how we interact. Sunny reads Hallmark legal disclaimer.
Programming note I think this is the last week of live shows this year, back after New Years
