Just chiming in after only reading the first page of this thread, but thinking, "Peoople still watch The View???"
I saw a few shows while working out at the gym and was bored silly with the "fluffiness" of the show. I don't like, nor dislike, Rosie O'Donnell, but her comment was definitely ignorant. I like Barbara Walters, but IMO, being on The View was a few steps down for her.

Just to clarify...this was not Miss America...it is Miss USA. The difference being that Miss USA does not have the prestige as Miss America...it is known to be a little racier. Just a FYI.

I used to love Rosie, but it seems that near the end of her tv show and when all the stuff was going on with her magazine, she became a very nasty and angry individual.
Personally, I think that outright name calling by both her and Donald Trump are just mean spirited and shed a bad light on both parties.
As far as the comments about PA, I really didn't appreciate it. I get it that she is a comedian, but there are some topics that are inappropriate to make fun of. For example, would she make a joke about someone bound to a wheelchair and say something like, no big deal, she can walk...she just is too lazy or she's making her situation a bigger deal than it is? Or would she make fun of a cancer patient? No, most people understand these situations and would be mortified....the way we are when we hear jokes about PA.
I think that she is really pent up these days and is very dark and negative.
I have never watched the view, mostly because I didn't like Star Jones. I also don't really like the girlie pow wow thing.
I think that her time on the View will be short lived. She can't seem to shut her piehole....

I saw parts of the news conference that "outed" Miss USA. Got the feeling Trump was missing some of the coverage "The Apprentice" brought to him. Like he was feeling left out of the media given more important news like the war in Iraq.
Sure, he provided jobs - how many companies had to lay people off because he defaulted on loans when filing bankruptcy? How many companies went under when counting on the "Trump" because he can do "no wrong"? May as well call me sad and bitter, I feel the same way about Trump's "moral compass." Rosie and her girlfriend/wife have a loving relationship and have opened up their home to several children. Donald Trump has broken up two families (and despite the smiles you may see in the tabloid pictures) has messed with the lives of 4 children. Now he has a fifth child...how long before he decides Melania isn't enough and leads his life with his lower brain?
MADD made a point as well, they pulled their sponsorship of Miss USA and Miss Teen USA in a much more dignified way IMO

Um.....you believe Melania expects her role as Wife #3 to Trumpster is final? Is expecting deep committment from him? Well, you know, emotional committment. But a woman who puts her baby in a gold pram and wears taffeta while holding an infant?
Alrighty then.

they severed ties with Miss Teen USA. Miss Teen USA was seen partying with Miss USA apparently and MADD did not want to seem to condone that behavior. perfectly justified for THEIR organization.
trump's forgiving Miss USA perfectly justified for HIS organization (so, again, what's rosie's mouthing-off about?)>
