The View: Eddie and Brian Holland, Hot Topics

Full panel

Eddie and Brian Holland

Holland brothers are Hall of Fame songwriters for everybody important from Motown. They’re promoting their book Come and Get These Memories.

More clips and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]

They talk about why they decided to become songwriters instead of singers. Singing is hard work! But publishing songs made good money. BH was in love with Diana Ross but then it ended for whatever reasons. They were both married [lol]. Lawsuits with Barry Gordy. They don’t think they were given a break because there was nothing to give at the time. You made your own way. He provided opportunity but you had to hustle. Otis Williams from The Temptations is in the audience. He talks a bit from his seat. Says he’s proud of what the Holland brothers became, stayed humble.

Bop in your seat and sing along time

The Broadway cast of Ain’t Too Proud to Beg does some of their most famous songs.

Hot Topic What a Clusterf’ck Debate

That was the absolute worst moderated debate ever!11!1! What a complete shitshow.

Plays clip. Warren was vicious to Bloomberg. Meghan scolds the View audience person whose phone was not on silent. She thinks Warren is angling for VP and a misfire. Panel liked Biden. Meghan called out the moderators [she is right, good god they were horrible]. Sunny felt issues to black community were prominent since they were in SC and that’s good. Lists several topics. Panel talks about Biden again. The coveted Clyburn endorsement was announced just before the show re/Biden. Clyburn feels like Sanders would lose in a landslide. Whoopi gives her speech about voting your heart.

Joy wonders why Meghan has a visceral hate towards Steyer, lol. Sunny thinks everyone buys their way into the election. Whoopi disagrees. Voters choose. People aren’t buying votes. The panel is talking over each other. Sunny doesn’t care if candidates use their own money. Joy is glad that Bloomberg used his own money to help 2018 midterms. Meghan is still worked up about Steyer. Sunny takes down Meghan that Steyer didn’t say anything of consequence, because Steyer mentioned reparations (which are important to black community). Whoopi has another rant. People who say things, but don’t do things, that’s who and what you should focus on.

Hot Topic Bloomberg Girlfriend Says Get Over It

Plays clip. Bloomberg g/f says things. Bloomberg has released 3 women from NDA (Idk how many there are in total). G/f suggests that it’s locker room talk. Panel talks about how to properly apologize vs being dismissive. Sunny talks about the g/f and doesn’t like her tone. Bro culture was prevalent decades ago but not everyone behaved that way. Whoopi wonders what does someone have to do to apologize. Panel thinks he learned from his mistakes. Panel wonders why Warren went after Bloomberg again, after making the point last debate. Whoopi gives her speech again, no one is ever just one thing. Meghan thinks Bloomberg needs to get messaging tight and strong, otherwise don’t use g/f as surrogate.

Hot Topic Coronavirus

The same idiot who thinks windmills cause cancer and drew a hurricane in Alabama on a map with a sharpie thinks coronavirus is a media conspiracy from the deep state Democrats. The whole admin is an epidemic of incompetence. Nobody believes this admin, so no one knows what to think. Even Acting DHS couldn’t answer basic questions. We’re in a free fall of fending for ourselves, including getting the right information, because we can’t rely on the dum dums in the WH to handle things.

***A doctor is joining panel on Friday to provide coronavirus facts and advice.

Programming note T45 is allegedly going to talk at 6PM eastern about the fake hoax flu, so that’s the best time to do your laundry, shovel snow, stare at the ceiling in silence, you do you, boo.

Hot Topic Don’t Mention Weight Changes

Mentioning someone has lost weight might be seen as a compliment, but now it’s a no-no because you don’t know why the person may have lost weight and it could be related to a serious illness or eating disorder. The phrasing is tricky and everyone is sensitive. Meghan complimented Joy before the show started, so they revisit that and talk about whether that was ok.

Simone Arianne Biles is an American artistic gymnast. With a total of 30 Olympic and World Championship medals, Biles is the most decorated American gymnast and the world's third most decorated gymnast, behind Belarus' Vitaly Scherbo (33 medals) and Russia's Larisa Latynina (32 medals). At the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Biles won individual gold medals in all-around, vault and floor; bronze in balance beam; and gold as part of the United States team, dubbed the "Final Five". Biles is a five-time World all-around champion (2013–2015, 2018–19), five-time World floor exercise champion (2013–2015, 2018–19), three-time World balance beam champion (2014–15, 2019), two-time World vault champion (2018–19), a six-time United States national all-around champion (2013–2016, 2018–19), and a member of the gold-medal-winning American teams at the 2014, 2015, 2018, and 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. Additionally, she is a three-time World silver medalist (2013 and 2014 on vault, 2018 on uneven bars) and a three-time World bronze medalist (2015 on vault, 2013 and 2018 on balance beam).

Biles is the gymnast with the most World medals (25) and most World gold medals (19), having surpassed Scherbo's record 23 World medals by winning her 24th and 25th, both gold, at the 2019 competition in Stuttgart. She is the female gymnast with the most World all-around titles (5). Biles is the sixth woman to win an individual all-around title at both the World Championships and the Olympics, and the first gymnast since Lilia Podkopayeva in 1996 to hold both titles simultaneously. She is the tenth gymnast and first American gymnast to win a World medal on every event, and the first gymnast since Daniela Silivaș in 1988 to win a medal on every event at a single Olympic Games or World Championships, having accomplished this feat at the 2018 World Championships. Olympic Champion Mary Lou Retton called Biles the "greatest gymnast ever"; other observers have echoed the sentiment.
