From one of the sages on 'The View'

“We’ve got a solar eclipse, we’ve got an earthquake… also, I learned that cicadas are coming!” Hostin said, as she didn’t have the time to do a quick Google pronunciation lookup of how to actually pronounce cicadas since she butchered that as well.

“Si-CAH-Dahs ar coming!” Hostin said again, prompting Whoopi Goldberg to correct her as “Si-CAY-Duhs” and the TV control room executive producer probably throwing their hands up in the air.

It didn’t stop there though. “For the first time in a hundred years or so [the cicadas are coming], for the first time in many, many years actually” before Whoopi then had to cut Hostin off again. “No, no. Every 17 years this happens,” Goldberg cut in as if she was back filming Sister Act and scolding a student.

“That’s not what I read,”noting before then brilliantly… and I mean brilliantly, saying the solar eclipse, earthquake and cicadas “would lead [people] to believe that climate change is happening.”

One of the qualifications required to be a panelist on The View is a complete lack of brain function. All that is required is a mouth functioning totally independent of actual thought.

'Human sacrifices, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!'

When you think she's hit bedrock on her stupidity, she just grabs a jackhammer.

Pretty bad when Whoopi is the voice of reason.
