She’s overrated. Y’all know that, right? Big superstar reporter an’ all that? Well, here’s an example of how overrated she is.
A transcript, for the video-impaired…
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?
BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.
It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.
So that’s Babbles Walters callin’ Obama a messiah. Specifically, that’s Babbles Walters sayin’ “WE thought he was going to be the next messiah.”
We? Who is we?
That’s funny story number one. You ready for funny story number two?
For Phil Robertson, ducks always come first.
That’s why the “Duck Dynasty” star skipped out on meeting with Barbara Walters for her “Most Fascinating People of 2013” special, according to his wife Miss Kay, who sat down with Walters in his place.
“Tell him I have never been superseded by a duck before,” Walters quipped during the special, according to a transcript of the interview obtained by FOX411. The special will air Wednesday on ABC.
“He would rather shoot ducks than talk to us, yes?” Walters mused.
Miss Kay attempted to explain her husband’s decision to the famed interviewer.
“Oh yes. Between, uh, November and January, I told him I didn’t ever plan to die then, because, he may not be at my funeral,” she said with a laugh.
How much y’all love ol’ Phil? He looks at Babbles, and sees that she’s one o’ those harpies on that View show, and knows she thinks Obama is the messiah, and he ain’t impressed.
He looks at all that and he says “Imma be in the duck blind. New York and Babbles can get stuffed.”
And what’s funny is that even after he tells Babbles to take a hike, ABC still’s gotta get ’em some Duck Dynasty to put on the tube – so they interview Miss Kay in his place. They don’t change their opinion on how fascinatin’ Phil is when he takes a powder; they settle for the missus.
That means – an’ pay attention here – Phil Robertson is a bigger deal than Babbles Walters is. West Monroe trumps Noo Yawk City.
Y’all gonna have to forgive me for findin’ this outright hi-larious.
