Don't piss off the nurses. They give you shots, and they have a powerful social media presence.

Earlier this week, the hosts of The View got in Internet Trouble for their comments about nurses while discussing the Miss America pageant. Michelle Collins mocked Miss Colorado's monologue about being a nurse, while Joy Behar asked why she was wearing "a doctor's stethoscope." (It was...of course...a nurse's stethoscope.)

On today's episode of The View, they tried to make amends. Collins explained:

We love nurses. We adore you. We respect you. You guys are wonderful. You're the most compassionate people. I was not talking about nurses, we were talking about the talent competition, and it got misconstrued.
