Barbara Walters Fawns Over 'Most Fascinating' Hillary One Last Time on 'The View'
NewsBusters ^ | May 16, 2014 | Matthew Balan

Barbara Walters gushed over Hillary Clinton, who made a surprise appearance on the ABC personality's last episode of The View on Friday. Walters wasted little time before exclaiming to Clinton, "Why don't you just take my place on the show?" The host later exalted the former first lady as "someone we admire – and, for me, it's more than admiration – it's very deep affection."

Co-host Sherri Shepherd pointed out that Clinton has been on Walters' "most fascinating" list more than any other person. The retiring View host repeatedly used this label through out the segment, which lasted just over six and half minutes:

Any show espousing Jenny McCarthy as an expert on anything other than sex and how to party isn’t worth it’s salt.

What a blowing-chunks-inducing performance that must have been.

As a teenager, I saw a pic of Barbara Walters all dressed up going into a society wedding (Kennedy, I think). That was my first realization that media figures wanted to belong to the elite or already considered themselves as such. Not exactly “The Front Page”, anymore.

That was back when it was considered a REALLY big deal to marry a Kennedy. How times have changed! ;)

After years and years it is clear that she is just plain sorry, about as sorry as they come.

I never liked Walters but, I never disliked her. Either. Until I saw her involvement in something a few months ago. I now view her as an opportunistic POS.

think about all the women in America that have watched Baba Wawa and the nitwits on “The View” and Oprah all these years and have been literally brainwashed by this anti-American trash and how this has affected the women’s vote.

Darn, I missed the last show of Barbara Waters on the view? How embarrassing? Jeez, I guess working is more important than seeing a few idiots libs talking.

While I enjoy GMA, today's program and ABC in general have been over the top in their love-gush of that liberal slut.........

Make-up artists and filtered camera lenses have extended her camera face time by twenty years........

Good Lord, Barbara, how many ways can an 86 y/o bend over backwards? On second thought, Barb, I don’t want to know.

Did this blithering moron of a woman actually state what precisely it was that is fascinating about this other blithering moron of a woman?

Or is Babs fascinated by Hillary’s gender, which really, isn’t fascinating at all...

If I could think of a voice and face that I would like less on TV than Barbara Walters, it would be Hillary.

All this ruckus for the retiring MSM administration pimpette. If I remember correctly, she is the one who made the term “media whore” popular for her methods of gaining and conducting “exclusive” interviews with politicians.

Hillary Clinton is a woman of probably above-average intelligence, average looks, below-average integrity, irritating voice, and below-average personality. There is nothing at all “fascinating” about her, except the way in which some people fawn over her. THAT is what is fascinating. And Barbara Walters is a vastly-overrated and overpaid moron, so her opinion is worth nothing on any topic.

I can remember her asking Jimmy Carter to “be kind to us”, and asking people what kind of tree they were.

Really hard hitting questions. I am being sarcastic.

I wonder if she ever interviewed William F. Buckley? My guess is no.

Why does it take Bahbwa three years to “retire”? I’m slow but this is ridiculous.

yeah, ‘back then’ marrying a Kennedy WAS a big deal. Now it’s more like signing your own death warrant.

We have to be cognizant of the power of the sisterhood.

I saw a clip on The Five showing all the powerful and influential women who said goodbye on her last show (mostly TV talking heads) and Kimberly and Andrea extolling Walters’ virtues for breaking down barriers and helping to provide more opportunities and more power for women. Like it or not, Hillary gets the same pass from women because women give women more passes because they are women.

It sucks. Somewhere I think there’s a constitutional amendment that needs repealing.
