The ladies of The View claim they never intend to offend anyone, but that's exactly what happened then the co-hosts made light of eating disorders on Thursday's show. The trouble began when Michelle Collins mentioned that presidential hopeful Donald Trump had revealed People that campaigning "has been so good to him that he has lost 15 lbs., ladies!" Paula Faris wasn't too surprised, explaining, "I thought something was different about him. It's the weight loss." Collins agreed, telling her, "It's the weight loss. His hair's looking great. But he says that it's all the chatting...Why am I not getting thin? I do this every day and I've not lost a pound."
Joy Behar teased Ben Carson, joking, "He says it's because of the excitement at his events that causes him to lose weight. So, by the logic Ben Carson should be 400 lbs. Right?" The co-hosts and the audience laughed, and Collins added, "I would love for him to big. Like wheel him around on a bed. Remember that guy in TLC who had that special and he couldn't get out of bed? Anyways, you guys...DVR it."
