Over the past few weeks, the liberal ABC talk show The View has seen their ratings plummet as audiences have become bored with watching their nitwit hosts attack Donald Trump on a daily basis. Now, even the show’s creator Barbara Walters, a proud liberal herself, has made it clear that she is embarrassed to even be associated with The View.
This week, a source close to The View told reporters that Walters believes that ABC “ruined” her show by hiring ignorant loudmouths like Whoopi Goldberg to sit on the program’s panel.
“She feels they’ve ruined the franchise that she and Bill Geddie built. Instead of focusing on smart, educated women with strong talent, they cast uninformed child actors on the show. The legacy has been compromised because of poor casting and bad leadership under ABC News,” a source told Page Six.
Walters is allegedly so desperate to distance herself from the ABC talk show that she ditched a post-election special which reunited original hosts Debbie Matenopoulos, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar and Star Jones. Her representative claimed that Walters was simply vacationing in Florida with her daughter when the show was scheduled to film.
“It was a prearranged vacation for the two of them. She calls the control room multiple times a week to offer her suggestions. She has a wonderful relationship with the show,” Walters’ representative said.
It says a lot that even Barbara Walters no longer wants to be associated with this ridiculous talk show. SHARE this story if you think The View should be CANCELLED!
