I don’t know about you, but when I’m jonesing for a healthy dose of Comedy political stupidity the first place I look is the most recent episode of “The View.” Reason being, the Lady geniuses of the ridiculous talk show take stupidity strong to the paint — every damn day.
Tuesday’s episode did not disappoint. A little background.
As reported by the BBC on Sunday, 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II is “experiencing mild cold-like symptoms” after contracting COVID. BBC reported that several people tested positive for COVID at Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth’s home, which also houses Prince Charles. The monarch expects to continue “light duties” and “receive medical attention and …. follow all the appropriate guidelines.” In other words, yawn.
As if it were a clock, the intrepid of our team are always on top. Emerging and Infectious Disease Experts — Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sarah Haines, and Sunny Hostin — promptly discussed whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson should remove COVID-19 mandates for the U.K, as announced on Monday, in light of the news of the Queen’s diagnosis.
Sunny Hostin is the best quote in the below clip.
It’s kind of tone-deaf, right, at this point, to announce this on the eve of the Queen announcing that she’s contracted COVID — I mean, they have one job. And that’s to protect the Queen, and they couldn’t even do that.
Um, Sunny? “Tone-deaf,” babe? Have a mirror, just in case?
Below commentary to be labelled comedy goldThis would be an exaggeration.

An expert relative who didn’t see the above commentary as comedy gold was Fox News medical contributor Dr. Janette Nesheiwat, who on Wednesday blasted Whoopi & Co.’s “ridiculous” drivel, as transcribed by Fox News:
It’s ridiculous. Really. It is important to consider the potential words for fear and anxiety in your speech. Boris Johnson’s actions are perfectly right, I believe. That’s what the United States should be doing.
[Queen Elizabeth] likely picked up omicron from her son because it’s extremely contagious. She did what she had to do, she’s triple vaccinated, and her symptoms are mild.
The number of positive case reports in our community is very low, and it’s almost non-existent. Our mitigation efforts must be reduced. We can’t live with masks and mandates forever.
Amen to the good doctor’s last line.
To be sure, “The View” geniuses have, time and time again, gotten out over their low-information left-wing skis on any number of issues, taking turns embarrassing the hell out of themselves, individually.
But when the addled, old clueless dude in the White House histrionically warns of a “winter of severe illness and death” for the unvaxxed, and the
COVID Gnome Anthony Fauci declares “I am science,” only to continually attempt to move the science goal posts, is it any wonder loons like the ladies of “The View” follow in these ridiculous footsteps like the silly leftist lemmings they are?
No, it isn’t.
