Multiple co-hosts on The View showed their ignorance and their idiocy on Tuesday by making fun of Kelly Johnson during a particularly unfunny segment.
Johnson represented Colorado at this year's Miss America Pageant.
Instead of showing off a talent such as singing, dancing or juggling, however, Johnson appeared on stage in her nurse's uniform and talked about the challenges and the rewards of her profession.
You can watch her speech above.
Pretty cool, right? Nice and different and inspiring?
Not according to The View.
“There was a girl who wrote her own monologue and I was like 'Turn the volume up, this is going be amazing, let's listen,’” said Michelle Collins.
“She came out in a nurse's uniform and basically read her emails out loud and shockingly did not win."
Collins went on to say it was "hilarious."
Joy Behar then inquired as to why Johnson had a "doctor's stethoscope on," a remark that drew ire and consternation on Twitter.
For the record, nurses around the world nearly all wear and use stethoscopes on a daily basis. They always have.
In the end, Betty Cantrell was crowned Miss America 2016, partly due to her opera singing.
She gave an impressive performance and all... but why The View panelists chose to focus on a nurse's inspiring speech, as opposed to the mere fact that beauty pageants (with evening gown and swimsuit competitions) still exist is rather depressing.
