Albert Brooks on 'The View'Comedian, filmmaker, actor and author Albert Brooks' new novel is provocatively titled '2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America.' Tuesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) he gave a few predictions and riffed on current news stories, including the Arnold Schwarzenegger/Maria Shriver break-up (Brooks thinks she gave him an ultimatum: "You do one more of those 'Terminator' movies and I'm outta here').

Brooks was once a great stand-up, and he's quick on his feet. He looked at guest co-host Teri Hatcher and said, "I don't know what she did, but I have never seen Whoopi look more radiant." When Barbara Walters asked what was going to happen in 2030, remarking she wouldn't be there, Brooks reassured her that she would. "You will be here, because I didn't realize how young you were," he said, folding his arms and rolling his eyes.

But the most important question about the future came from Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Would Donald Trump be president? "I don't know how much I could say 'no' to that," he said. Hopefully, Brooks just saved us all a lot of aggravation.
