The View: Nick Offerman, Anthony Daniels, Cory Booker, Hot Topics

Full panel

Nick Offerman

Nick Offerman is promoting his show Devs on Hulu

Another clip and summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]

NO voted for Warren. Now he wants Sanders. Talks the candidates in generalities. Feels everyone would be better, explains it in analogy we had a full meal (of candidates) which is better, than what we’re being served now (T45). Talks about Parks & Rec. Talks about not gender-izing everything. Yes he can chop firewood, but so can his sister, stay openminded.

Married 16 yrs to Megan Mullally, shows photo. They wrote a book, and have a podcast In Bed with Nick and Megan. Says they record in their bed, talks about why their marriage works. Podcast is about everything, not just relationships, and the guest has things they want to talk about. Moves on to his new show, explains the premise.

Hot Topic Coronavirus

Matt Gaetz is a putz. First he mocks the virus by wearing a gas mask on the floor of the House. Now he’s been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed. Then he was in proximity with DonaldDumDum© and thought he should self-quarantine on AF1. WaPo released a montage of all the mixed messages from this Dum Dum admin. [Proof there are no alien visitors because we’re too stupid to be bothered with]. Plays clip. T45 hasn’t been tested, despite being in contact with multiple people who may be carriers. All T45 is thinking about is his re-election, because he’s worried he’ll go to jail. [lol accurate] Sunny thinks it’s dangerous. It would be cataclysmic for T45 to have the virus. Average age Congress 57.6, where Pelosi and McConnell are both in 70s, take this seriously. Whoopi talks Italy. Her business partner was in Italy, when he returned they were like, welcome back and didn’t ask him anything or test him. 59% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. 1 in 4 don’t have sick pay leave. People can’t self-quarantine because they can’t survive. Meghan says blah blah. 43% of polled are members of the cult who think T45 is doing a good job handling the crisis. Meghan brings up the cuckoo alien lady Trish Regan on Fox. Their hoax theories are coming back to bite them. Whoopi clarifies her business partner is self-isolating, because she was so sick last year, so No she hasn’t been possibly exposed by him. Panel debates all the same questions we all have that still haven’t been answered.

Hot Topic Booker on Biden

Plays clip. Booker joins by satellite. He’s in Michigan (with Harris) stumping for Biden. Booker says all the things you’d expect him to say, so I’m not going to summarize it all. Joy asks what is Booker’s issue with Sanders. Booker says normal nice human things about Sanders, then explains why he feels Biden is the one who can unify and win the election.

Meghan pivots to coronavirus and asks about candidates and their campaign rallies. Booker says things, repeats everything we’ve already heard. Mentions some Biden events stopped doing rope lines, or are doing elbow bumps (also there was hand sanitizer squirt for one event, as each person entered). Joy asks about VP slot. Booker loves his job, he was vetted by Hillary. Likened it to a deep cavity exam. Ducks the question. He wants to serve and make a difference but he’s going to support the Biden ticket. Whoopi jokes that she’s turned it (VP) down.

Rosario Dawson isn’t discussed, bloop. Click for related post here by trancexperiment

Hot Topic Megxit

Whoopi brings up (possibly but not really) awkward exchange at last Royal event. Then goes to news clip where London woman actually says many British feel Meghan is “5-clicks up from trailer trash”, which gets a frinkle-face reaction from the reporter. Yikes, these f’ckers. Panel is aghast at that woman’s comment. Trashes the London woman. Loathsome and shocking. It’s why they’re leaving, it’s ridiculous, how they treated her. It wasn’t overblown. They said the same about Wallis Simpson but in different terms back then. Kate isn’t from royalty but she didn’t get trashed [more than “Katie Waity”]. Meghan reads some British tabs, the treatment of her (Duchess) is atrocious.

Hot Topic C3PO Anthony Daniels

Anthony Daniels is the only actor to appear in all Star Wars films and he’s promoting his book I am C-3PO: The Inside Story AD says he was a ~serious actor, so he didn’t want the part when he first met with George Lucas in 1975. Explains his evolution, how grateful he is. Talks about why he think it’s such an iconic character. They talk about his character voice. Everything about it was good for him as an actor, the physicality and voice tone and embodying the character’s nature. Talks about the impact of having video or downloadable viewing options where you can pour over scenes and watch them again and again. They surprise him with Chewbacca and R2D2. With offer of sanitizer. Everyone gets a digital download of The Rise of Skywalker.

This was a missed opportunity. There’s no explanation what the book really covers, or why it would be interesting to read.
