In an early episode of “The Simpsons,” Homer Simpson turns on the television to a show titled “Afternoon Yak” to which he immediately says “Boring” and changes the channel. This came out years before “The View” made its broadcast debut. However, the title “Afternoon Yak” is far more apt of a title than “The View” because all the hosts on the show actually do is yak. They spew uninformed information to their viewers and try to pass it on as fact. Of course, the fact that any of these individuals are even on a talk show is beyond the point.
On one of the most recent episodes, a co-host on the show called for Donald Trump to step down because of Russian hackers affecting the election. Here’s the thing about that. Even if we believe Russia had something to do with gaining access to the DNC’s emails, what came out revolved around the Democratic Party blocking Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, informing senators how to speak towards black people and so on. So Democrats are calling foul on this. That’s like calling out someone else for stealing while you’re shoving items into your own pockets to shop lift. So the fact that these individuals on The View want Donald Trump to step down because their own party was called out for attempted cheating is laughable at best.
If you really want your blood to boil, which the hosts of The View (or should we say Afternoon Yak) talk about it in full in this video.
