Well, that’s an hour of my life I won’t get back. The show started with Sherri Shepperd talking about her first Jewish wedding where she exclaimed, “Jews party like it’s 1999!” — whatever that means.
Michelle’s segment wasn’t until the very end, which meant enduring 40 plus minutes on weddings, pregnancy weight gain (somehow Whoopi Goldberg blamed hers on a potato chip factory), Cookie Monster, and, finally, air turbulence. Then came Michelle, who did a fantastic job.
At one point, Whoopi misquoted Michelle, which Michelle knocked down pretty strongly. To the point that Whoopi, who had not read the book, blamed someone off-stage for the error. The segment ended, but during the credits, a visibly angry Whoopi shot back at Michelle over the quote. Here’s Michelle in her own words describing the incident:
Just finished up on The View, where I sparred with the ladies about Culture of Corruption.
Best part: Every single member of the audience got a copy of the book!
Second best part: Whoopi Goldberg, who didn’t read the book, asserting that I called the administration the most corrupt ever in the book when I was on the set — and then waiting for me to leave to falsely assert that “that young lady” said it on the Today Show.
No, I didn’t. Here’s the video.
As I said on the show, my argument is that the Obama administration needs to be held to its own standards and rhetoric — and by that standard, it is one of the most corrupt in recent history — a point I made on the Hannity show last Monday when I launched.
You know you’ve won the argument when the ladies of the View are reduced to arguing how corrupt Team Obama is, and not whether.
