'Price Is Right,' 'The View' fans outraged at timing of President Obama's speech on VA scandal
NY Daily News ^ | 5/21/14 | Michael Sorrentino

Call it the ultimate “first world problem.”

President Obama responding Wednesday to alleged misconduct at Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals has infuriated fans of TV game show "The Price Is Right" and talk show "The View."

Obama's speech --- addressing claims that VA hospitals rigged records to make it seem as if wait times were shorter than they actually were --- interrupted the 11 a.m. television hour via breaking news interruption. These interruptions are typically decided on by networks, but angry Twitter posts from fans were aimed at the President nonetheless.

"If Obama takes up one more minute of my Price is Right, I'm going to throw the remote at my tv," tweeted one fan.

NEVER FORGET:



Read an article from Tom Fife and a comment from thefife.


The ILLEGAL ALIEN IN CHIEF is happy with his results, but feining anger.
The Fabian Fascist and Arab-Kenyan would just love to rebuild the United States into a turd-world country, like his home country of Kenya.

Watch Glenn Beck with Trevor Loudon & his book "Barack Obama and the Enemies Within".
Then watch that 29 minute 13 seconds video Trevor Loudon- An Urgent (and chilling) Message for America.

Years ago, daytime tv was dominated by soap operas. I can remember my mother having a hissy fit every time one of her favorite shows was interrupted by a presidential speech.

Don't worry. Barry's busy taking the "first world" out of our problems.

Why do they even bother to interrupt television to broadcast Obama’s nonsense. He didn't say anything important, and nobody expected him to say anything important.

President Narcissist needs to appear wherever he gets the most people viewing him. Interrupting TPIR and The View simply means he didn’t have a football broadcast to taint.

The media is an arm of the Obama propaganda ministry. They have to broadcast Il Duce’s every word.

True. Didn't the MSM stop broadcasting some of Bush's speeches because they deemed them “not newsworthy?”

Another day of propaganda by Obama, who really never cared until the media blew up the thing (finally).

REMEMBER this November, folks....

VOTE AGAINST DEMOCRATS WHO BROUGHT YOU THIS MAN.

This is just the kind of thing that Rush said would hurt Zero with the low information crowd....nothing policy-based will hurt him, but some pop-culture faux pas would cause damage.

I have a friend that uses “The Horns of Defeat” for his cellphone’s ringtone for whenever his wife calls.

I was driving to a lunch time meeting when Herman Cain was interrupted for this “speech”. The POS was even on Fox Business so I was happy there was one network which did not carry him: PGA Network. I blissfully drove along without the desire to slam my car into a bridge abutment.

No kidding...what the hell has happened to our people?

It’s almost as if we’ve totally forgotten who we were.

Average American. Around here they are whaling. But around here it seems that on leaving their house they do this sort of ‘now, how can I make my appearance worse than this?’
And that’s at Mass. On Sunday

I have to see men in baggy shorts and yes I have to have full sight of their toes

The price is right?

I can understand that. It takes cutting edge intellect and real skill to maneuver that game....makes chess seem like tic-tac-toe. But, the View. That’s for dummies. /sarc

Foolish, foolish Barry. He should have gone on The View to talk about the problem rather than interupt it. Walters, Goldberg and the other pannelists would have asked a couple stupid, softball questions. He would have given a stupid, banal answer and the brainless hausfraus who watch it would have thought he was doing a great job dealing with it.

Fpr those of us on the West Coast, we missed most of the ‘after finale’ interviews with the winners of Dancing With The Stars.

I was so delighted that Maks won- & I missed most of that interview to get to listen to Obama flap his gums endlessly.

Can you remember when CBS interrupted “As The World Turns” to report that President Kennedy had been shot? ATWT was live back then, and when they cut back to the show, the live actors had no idea what to do, they were all upset about the President.

I don’t remember that. Stupid of the network to expect the show to go on after that announcement.
