I think the comment he made at the correspondents' dinner which was directed at BW had to do with a spin on tweet/treat (dog).
As for why I think she stopped Whoopi, I think it was her way of saying that she decides when hot topics start. She's self destructing by staying on TV.
I think you are right Deb70. I think that Barbara brought it up because she was so excited that she was one of the people at the dinner important enough to be mentioned in a joke. She is pretending to be offended, but I think she's just excited over the attention. I heard the joke. Jimmy Kimmel was talking about things that were so different 15 years ago, and among them said that a "tweet" was something Barbara Walters gave her dog (implying that she can't say her R's, so she'd say treat tweet). Honestly, I heard the joke over the weekend and didn't understand it. It took Whoopi asking Barbara to say treat three times in a row for me to get it, so if Barbara hadn't brought it up, I would have forgotten it!
The average dog is a nicer person than the average person
I wonder who is really in charge with The View. It's Barbara's baby, but there has to be someone who can tell her the truth. Who will say to Barbara, "You are ruining your show. Either get out or we will take it off the air." I think that is the only thing she may understand. And she may wish to have it cancelled than to go on without her.
I don't record the show everyday the way I used to do. I now see it once in while. If Barbara happens to be on that day, I change it. I can't bear to listen to her anymore. It's ruins the show IMO.
From what I have seen on The Talk, it may be the better of the two shows presently.
I know the perfect person to tell her the truth. Her good friend Judge Judy.
I thought the "tweet" joke was hilarious!!! I also think she was flattered, while she pretended to be offended. I want to see a rerun of that dinner!
And I hate "mommy" shows, which is how The Talk started out. Don't know where it is now. I think the tall, slender black girl is a lousy comedienne, too.
