The View: Stacey Abrams, Hot Topics

Panel is Whoopi, Joy, Sunny, and Meghan

More behind the cut

Hot Topic Black Lives Matter

Seattle is operating one autonomous neighborhood as a police free zone for peaceful protests. BunkerBaby© says stupid things, the Seattle Mayor claps back. Seattle is sorting it out themselves, so shut up. Joy is having low-flow shower hair today. Sunny tackles the distinction of domestic terrorists designation and so on. Whoopi has jello brain today. Meghan explains why she thinks Seattle reminds her of Occupy Wall Street, except OWS got out of hand.

Hot Topic Bye Statues and Confederate Flag

Statues are coming down, not just in America but all over the world. NASCAR is banning the confederate flag. The military had already started banning any display by servicemen of the Confederate flag, now they want to rename military bases that were named after Confederate Generals. It’s illegal in Germany to display the swastika so they march with the Confederate flag instead. Only in America do people cling to celebrating and memorializing the losers. Whoopi thinks they should be renamed for heroes not failures. Meghan reminds American heroes include the indigenous people and Tuskegee Airmen. Suggests one base be named about Lori Piestewa who was killed in Iraq war. All Phoenix references to Squaw Peak (the point, the parkway, etc) was already renamed to Piestawa xxx years ago and well received.

Hot Topic Stacey Abrams

They talk about the catastrophe of Georgia’s primary election last Tuesday, absentee ballot failure, Heroes Act re/mail in votes, coronavirus complications on election day, potential for widespread voter suppression for November, Black Lives Matter protests, changes with police, slipping further into authoritarian regime, her being on the short-list for VP selection, and she promotes her book Our Time is Now.
