The View Clowns Demand Libs Cut Ties With Twitter: Come Back When We Can 'Get Control'
The clowns on 'The View' brought on recently humiliated actress Alyssa Milano to bash on Elon Musk some more. Milano just made a fool for herself by publicly announcing that she had ditched her Musk-made Tesla for a German-owned VW. The humiliating part is Milano linked Tesla to 'white supremacy' without knowing the Nazi-run history of VW.
Needless to say, Milano was humiliated as Twitter users jumped all over her for ditching a car developed by an African immigrant for one with Nazi ties.
For whatever reason, this put Milano on the list to talk to the clown on 'The View'—Birds of a feather?
Milano said that liberals need to stick it out on Twitter and fight out this make-believe 'turf war', but host Whoopi Goldberg strongly disagreed:
"No, no. Not that. There’s other ones you can come and grab, leave that to them because that is what that is meant to be now. It's not meant to be any better than what we’re seeing."
Joy Behar complained that liberals would be just 'handing it over'.
Goldberg argued, "I'll tell you, some things you have to walk away from until you can get the control you need of it. Right now there's no way to get this control. And so find the ones that you can get and fix and then come back and run that run over."
JOY BEHAR: So, Sam, you've also been known to clap back at politician or two in your day, which I enjoy. What do you make of what's happening now that Elon Musk has taken over Twitter? I’m a little frightened for Twitter, frankly. What about you?
SAMUEL L. JACKSON: I just quit it.
JACKSON: But there are so many more important things that we have to deal with. Like we're busy trying to get --
LATANYA RICHARDSON JACKSON: Raphael Warnock!
JACKSON: Raphael Warnock elected.
RICHARDSON JACKSON: Please go to the polls and vote!
JACKSON: As opposed to an idiot who probably doesn't even have a Twitter account that can’t use Twitter.
BEHAR: Yeah, but that's a big audience, these Nazis can come in on those social media outlets. I don't like that.
JACKSON: People need to understand, everything that happens, Twitter is not a real world.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: You can actually not look at it.
RICHARDSON JACKSON: You can. And Brittney Griner lives in the real world. She lives in the real world.
JACKSON: Those are real world things that we need to do.
RICHARDSON JACKSON: Tweet that!
JACKSON: Elon Musk is Elon Musk. I have no idea what he is. I don't even know if he is a real person.

ALYSSA MILANO: I'm kind of like – like I'm so annoyed with all of these billionaires, with like the exception of a few, but especially with Elon Musk. Like, you buy Twitter to destroy it for $40 billion, right, $40 billion, Elon Musk – imagine if he donated that money to UNICEF. He would change the world. There would be no hunger.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: He could go in his pocket and donate that money.
MILANO: He could go in his pocket and it wouldn't cost 40 billion, but these guys—

SUNNY HOSTIN: What happens if things continue the way they are on Twitter? I think it's become a hellscape. But its’ been a hellscape for a minute.
MILANO: I mean, I was always on the receiving end of trolls. Right? So like, to me it doesn't feel any different. But you know, I always open Twitter with like – such – with like helmet on, because I'm so scared like something's going to come out and hit me.
HOSTIN: Do you think you'll stay only it?
MILANO: Yeah because we can't cede that territory. It's like turf war now. That's how I look at it.
GOLDBERG: No, no. Not that. There’s other ones you can come and grab, leave that to them because that is what that is meant to be now. It's not meant to be any better than what we’re seeing.
MILANO: If we're not representing our side of – of the political discourse, aren't we just saying, you know what you can have Twitter?
BEHAR: You’re handing it over.
GOLDBERG: I'll tell you, some things you have to walk away from until you can get the control you need of it. Right now there's no way to get this control. And so find the ones that you can get and fix and then come back and run that run over.
GOLDBERG: But, do yourself.
MILANO: I know, it is about self-care.
BEHAR: Well, don't read the comments, for one thing. Do not read the comments.
HOSTIN: Never read the comments.
MILANO: I always read the comments.
MILANO: Who doesn't read the comments? Everybody reads the comments.
HOSTIN: Whoopi and Joy taught us when we each joined the show.
MILANO: Do you turn the comments off?
BEHAR: No. I just don't read them. I’m not interested unless it’s someone that I respect.
HOSTIN: I have another question.
GOLDBERG: I left.
HOSTIN: She left.
GOLDBERG: Because I can't take it anymore.
MILANO: I respect that. Listen, I spent many, many days with my therapist talking about Twitter and social media.
HOSTIN: What so anonymous person said about you.
MILANO: Right. And it's hurtful.
GOLDBERG: Someone who doesn’t know you. Someone who doesn’t know you, hasn't met you, doesn't know your family, doesn’t know your – doesn’t know anything about you. But we let them – We let them in and say you have that power. Oh, no!
MILANO: It's the accessibility.
HOSTIN: It is. I stopped reading it when people came after my kids about the way that I mothered. And I stopped. I was like, because I'm going to go out there and I’mma find these people.
SARA HAINES: Liam Neeson those people.
