‘The View’ Guest Seth MacFarlane Calls Hosts’ Disney Costumes ‘Corporate Vertical Integration’

“This is why we need Bernie Sanders,” the “Family Guy” creator jokes while dressed as a lobster

“The View” forwent its usual Hot Topics and political commentary in a special Halloween episode Friday, but that didn’t stop guest Seth MacFarlane from cracking a few jokes on some of the ladies’ favorite topics.

While each “View” host came out dressed like a Disney villain – Whoopi Goldberg as Cruella de Vil from “101 Dalmatians,” Paula Faris as the stepmother from “Cinderella,” Raven-Symone as the witch from “Into the Woods,” Joy Behar as the queen from “Snow White” and Michelle Collins as Ursula from “The Little Mermaid – the “Family Guy” creator joined them dressed as a lobster.

When asked if he still enjoyed Halloween as an adult, he quipped, “Do I look like I like Halloween as an adult?” before asking, “How much of this is corporate vertical integration, by the way? This is why we need Bernie Sanders.”

MacFarlane also couldn’t resist making fun of the most easy to make fun of presidential candidate, joking that under a Donald Trump presidency, everyone would be required to dress like a lobster, or as he called his costume, “sunburnt Paul Giamatti.”

The “Ted” and “Ted 2” director, who is also a singer, was on the show to promote his new album of jazz standards, “No One Ever Tells You,” on sale now.
