Joy Behar gleefully fantasizes about ‘President Nancy Pelosi’ during gushing interview with House speaker

Joy Behar, co-host on “The View,” was in virtual ecstasy while fantasizing about an imaginary world in which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was president.

What are the details?

On Wednesday, Behar spoke to Pelosi in a livestream interview and she admitted that she’s “dreaming of the day when we say ‘President Nancy Pelosi.'”

“Nancy, I’m dreaming of the day when we say ‘President Nancy Pelosi,'” Behar told the 80-year-old House speaker. “I think that sounds really good.”

Pelosi appeared to revel in the compliment, and issued a throaty chuckle in response.

During the exchange, Behar discussed unnamed polls that she said show Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden ahead of President Donald Trump, but admitted that she is still concerned that somehow the incumbent president will “steal” the 2020 presidential election.

“The polls are showing that Biden is ahead in key swing states,” Behar said. “It’s very encouraging in many ways — Pennsylvania, et cetera — but I’m still worried that they could steal this election. I know that the Russians are still involved. Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security just released a report warning that Russia is a key threat to the election. Now we knew this going into 2016 too, and we saw how that turned out.

“That’s why I’m not counting my chickens at all,” Behar fretted. “I’m still nervous. People have to vote, and we have to win in a landslide. … How concerned are you about that?”

‘Joe Biden will be inaugurated and Kamala Harris inaugurated’

Pelosi responded, promising Behar that Democrats would do their best to be prepared for the Nov. 3 election.

“Well, I’m concerned,” Pelosi admitted, “but my motto is ‘We don’t agonize, we organize.’ And I have no doubt that the president, in typical fashion, will lie, cheat, and steal to win this election, so we are prepared for that. I’m sorry to have to say that … but that is the reality.”

Pelosi added, “He’s trying to dismantle the Postal Service to undermine vote by mail. He’s welcoming — inviting practically — the Russian interference into our elections. But again, we’re ready. We’re ready, and I will do everything in my power to make sure that matter how he tries to declare victory, or undermine the Electoral College, or try to win in the House — he’s bragging now he’s going to win in the House — I will assure you of this. A free and fair election, Joe Biden will be inaugurated and Kamala Harris inaugurated.”

Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Joy Behar Nursing home scandal Ny gov andrew cuomo Ted Cruz The View Videos

Sen. Ted Cruz triggers Joy Behar on ‘The View’ after he brings up Cuomo’s COVID-19 nursing home scandal

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) appeared on Monday’s episode of “The View” and explained what he said was a colossal COVID-19 failure on the part of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D).

He made the remarks in response to co-host Joy Behar’s concern over Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ announcement that he would be removing all COVID restrictions across the state.

What are the details?

During the later part of the broadcast, Behar accused Cruz of deflecting from the topic of DeSantis’ statewide announcement when he brought up Cuomo’s COVID-19 nursing home scandal.

In March, Cuomo drew wide condemnation after he ordered nursing homes to accept patients who tested positive for COVID-19.

As Newsbusters’ Kristina Marsh pointed out, “As each host tried and failed to trap the Republican senator with liberal talking points [earlier in the show], Joy Behar lost her patience at the end of the interview when talking about shutdowns and coronavirus.”

“[Behar] fretted about how Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis had let bars and restaurants open back up and asked [Cruz] if Texas would do the same,” Marsh said.

“He said they won’t be closing anything going forward,” a clearly worried Behar told Cruz during the exchange.

Cruz responded by pointing out that he does support a reopening of the economy, adding that the COVID-19 death rate in Florida — and in his home state of Texas — has been comparatively low when pitted against death rates in Democratic states.

“New York in particular has led the country in death rate, and I think it had a lot to do with the Democratic governor there — Gov. Cuomo — sending people who had COVID into nursing homes,” he insisted.

Behar snapped, “That’s not true!” and attempted to talk over Cruz, but he apparently would not permit it.

“Well, the death rate [in New York] is three times as high as the death rate in Texas or Florida,” he stated.

A clearly upset Behar did not want to talk about New York and pressed, “I asked you about DeSantis. Answer me about DeSantis, please. I’m talking about Florida right now, not New York. New York got hit very early, and a lot of people were coming in without any kind of sanctions on it.”

Cruz, who apparently didn’t see the relevance of her remark about Gov. DeSantis, added, “The policy of the governors of New York and New Jersey of sending people who were COVID-positive into nursing homes was catastrophic. And it resulted in a horrific death rate.”

Behar fired back, “Deflection! You are deflecting, sir! You are deflecting the question!”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg was primed to pile on at that point and directed the responsibility to President Donald Trump.

“Had the man who is running the country right now given us this information in January when he had it — when we could have maybe done something a little differently — it might have worked differently,” Goldberg snapped. “I just wanted to point that out. It’s not about whose people died more. People died, and they didn’t have to.”

Intelwars Joy Behar Meghan McCain Ruth Bader Ginsburg Scotus nominees Supreme Court The View Videos

Joy Behar concedes Democrats’ SCOTUS loss: ‘We’ve lost that battle’

Joy Behar, co-host on “The View,” said Tuesday that Democrats have lost the fight for the Supreme Court.

What are the details?

Behar said on the daytime show that Republicans won the battle for the control of the Supreme Court during a segment about replacing late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday.

“You know, I was thinking about the Supreme Court, because we’ve lost that battle,” she admitted. “I don’t want to talk about the Republicans anymore. We’ve lost the battle. That doesn’t mean we lost the Senate. There are states up for grabs — Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas … and Arizona, too.”

Behar added, “Those states could become Democratic, help the Democrats win the Senate.”

She insisted that she personally doesn’t need to worry too much about what the Supreme Court does because she’s “white.”

“I don’t have to worry about the Supreme Court that much because I’m white. Because I’m post menopausal so I can’t get pregnant, thank God,” she continued. “I happen to be straight. I have money because I’ve been working on ‘The View’ for so many years.”

Behar pointed out that those in more precarious situations should worry about what the Supreme Court will be like in the coming years.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg voiced her agreement and admitted that she didn’t want to think about the Supreme Court all that much, either — but she couldn’t help taking a backhanded swipe at purported top SCOTUS pick, Amy Coney Barrett.

“Well, here’s what I’ll say about — you know, talking about the woman who has the seven kids,” Goldberg said. “She’s up for becoming a justice. You know, you can’t really Kavanaugh her because Kavanaugh was Kavanaughed because he was accused of rape and people wanted to make sure that that wasn’t the case. No one’s going to accuse her of anything. And I haven’t really seen people going after her for her religion.”

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney indicated Tuesday that he would vote to confirm a qualified Trump nominee, which would likely kill any chances Democrats had of obstructing the nomination.

Baltimore blackface Coronavirus COVID-19 Intelwars Joy Behar Kimberly klacik Maryland The View

‘The View’ segment descends into chaos after GOP House candidate Kim Klacik calls out Joy Behar for blackface

An interview on “The View” with Kimberly Klacik, a Republican running for Congress in Maryland, ended badly after Klacik called out host Joy Behar for her blackface scandal.

Klacik is running in the 7th Congressional District in Maryland, a heavily Democratic district formerly served by the late Elijah Cummings, and has been endorsed by President Donald Trump.

When discussing President Trump’s COVID-19 response, Behar asked Klacik to answer for Trump’s admission to reporter Bob Woodward that he downplayed the virus early on.

“Excuse me, I have to say something to you,” Behar began. “He told Bob Woodward that it was a very serious issue. That it was airborne, and that it was terrible. Then he went out and told the American people, ‘Don’t wear masks, it’s all gonna go away. You have to put some blame on your president, I’m sorry. You’re putting it on something extraneous here. Talk to the point, please.”

“Is this Joy speaking?” Klacik responded. “The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago? Come on, Joy, I don’t think you should be asking these questions.”

Behar responded angrily to Klacik’s topic shift.

“Excuse me,” Behar interjected angrily. “The black community had my back. They know that that was not blackface, that was an homage. Oh, please. Just answer the question.”

As Behar was talking, Klacik responded that the black community had her back as well, leading host Sunny Hostin to jump in.

“The black community has your back?” Hostin interjected, incredulously. “The black community has your back? The black community did not vote for you. What planet are you living on? What planet are you living on? Wow.”

As Klacik attempted to explain the circumstances around the special election that she lost in February to Democrat Kweisi Mfume, who she is challenging again, Hostin turns around in her chair and Behar dismissively ends the interview.

“Listen, Kim, good luck to you,” Behar said as she ended the interview.

A photo of Behar wearing darkening makeup and dressing as a “beautiful African woman” in the 1970s was released by The Wrap in 2019.

Americans Coronavirus COVID-19 Donald Trump Donald Trump Jr. food and drug administration Forecasting Government Headline News illusion Intelwars Ivanka Trump Joy Behar LIES Medical Tyranny Military PANDERING propaganda right left paradigm Safe take the vaccine Vaccine

Ivanka Trump Says She’ll “Take The Vaccine” on The View

President Donald Trump’s daughter claims she will be vaccinated with the coronavirus concoction on the TV show The View after Joy Behar announced she has no intention of taking a Covid-19 vaccine before Ivanka Trump. Not only will Ms. Trump attempt to convince us to take the vaccine, but she also says we should “trust” the FDA.

Trust the FDA? Yes, she wrote that on Twitter. Everyone, including politicians on the right (who want to use the military to roll out this vaccine in a “powerful way”), wants you to get vaccinated. This should be a major red flag.

According to RT, most of the reactions to Trump’s offer have been slams against her and her father, she was offered some support by her brother, Donald Trump Jr, among others.

Trump declared this week that a Covid-19 vaccine could be ready by October and will be “very safe and effective.” Critics have pushed back against his claim, citing a rushed process as a reason to be distrustful of the efficacy of any such vaccine.

“As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America, in case we don’t know this because I looked all this up for you, the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries,” Behar said on Wednesday. –RT

This is all just more propaganda using the left/right paradigm illusion to convince you to suspend your critical thinking, roll up your sleeve, and take the shot.  Even with all of the politicians on all sides demanding we get vaccinated, around half of the country is still skeptical.

Trump Administration Is Stockpiling 3 Different Types Of COVID-19 Vaccines

President Trump himself has offered to take the vaccine “first or last,” depending on what is better for his political standing. “Well, you know the way it works. If I’m the first one they’ll say ‘He’s so selfish. He wanted to get the vaccine first. Then other people would say ‘Hey, that’s a very brave thing to do,’” he told Fox News in July. “I would absolutely if they wanted me to and thought it was right, I’d take it first or I’d take it last,” he added.

Sadly, this is just more evidence that they are all in  on it and they all want you to get vaccinated.

Covid-19 vaccine Intelwars Ivanka Trump Ivanka trump coronavirus vaccine Joy Behar The View Trump vaccine

Ivanka Trump calls Joy Behar’s bluff on COVID-19 vaccine — and says she’ll take it live on ‘The View’

Ivanka Trump says she’s not only ready and willing to take a COVID-19 vaccine — she’ll take it live on “The View” to call co-host Joy Behar’s bluff.

Behar said Wednesday that she had serious doubts about the efficacy of a rushed vaccine and would not take any vaccine approved by the Trump administration unless the president’s daughter took it first.

What are the details?

In a Thursday tweet directed at the liberal TV co-host, the president’s daughter
wrote,”Deal @JoyVBehar. I would come on your show to do so. I trust the FDA and so should all Americans. Vanquishing this virus should be our collective top priority.”

‘It’s not a simple thing to do’

On Wednesday, Behar suggested that any Trump administration-approved vaccine for COVID-19 could be faulty and unsafe.

The Trump administration has furiously been working to get a coronavirus vaccine approved and distributed to the American public by the end of 2020.

“[President Donald Trump] will push anything to get re-elected,” Behar spat. “Don’t fall for it. And by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”

Earlier in the segment, Behar explained, “As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America — in case we don’t know this, because I looked all this up for you — the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years, and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries. It was developed initially in 1796 when they started to think about it, and it became useful in the 1950s. OK? It’s not a simple thing to do.”

Fox News reported on Thursday that a source purporting to be close to the production “would welcome Ivanka Trump [on the show] and attempted to book her prior to the start of the current season.”

Behar has yet to respond to the first daughter’s tweet.

Coronavirus vaccine Covid-19 vaccine Donald Trump Intelwars Ivanka Trump Joy Behar

Joy Behar says she won’t trust the COVID-19 vaccine until Ivanka Trump takes it: ‘Don’t fall for it’

“The View” co-host Joy Behar said she doesn’t trust a COVID-19 vaccine that may be released to the public by November, and she won’t take it unless President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, does, according to The Hill.

The Trump administration has been working to get a vaccine approved and distributed by the end of the year through a public-private partnership initiative called Operation Warp Speed. Behar pointed to the amount of time it took for other vaccines to be developed as reason for concern.

“[Trump] will push anything to get reelected,” Behar said. “Don’t fall for it, and by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”

“Under Operation Warp Speed, we’re producing a vaccine in record time,” the president said at a rally in North Carolina. “This is a vaccine that we’re going to have very soon, very, very soon. By the end of the year, but much sooner than that perhaps.”

From The Hill:

“As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America — in case we don’t know this because I looked all this up for you — the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years, and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries,” Behar said on ABC on Wednesday morning.

“It was developed initially in 1796, when they started to think about it, and it became useful in the 1950s. OK?” she added of the smallpox vaccine. “It is not a simple thing to do.”

“He will push anything to get reelected,” she added later, referring to President Trump. “Don’t fall for it, and by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention alerted states to be prepared for a vaccine as early as the end of October, although that doesn’t necessarily mean one will be approved by then. Several U.S. companies, and others around the world, are working on a vaccine.

An AstraZeneca vaccine trial was recently halted due to an unexplained illness in the trial that may or may not be related to the vaccine.

“As part of the ongoing randomized, controlled global trials of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine, our standard review process triggered a pause to vaccination to allow review of safety data,” an AstraZeneca statement read. “This is a routine action which has to happen whenever there is a potentially unexplained illness in one of the trials, while it is investigated, ensuring we maintain the integrity of the trials.”

Auto zones Daytime tv Domestic terrorist Intelwars Joy Behar President Donald Trump The View Whoopi Goldberg

Joy Behar loses it and calls President Trump a ‘domestic terrorist’ — Whoopi has to talk her down from the ledge

Joy Behar, liberal co-host on “The View,” referred to President Donald Trump as a “domestic terrorist” during Thursday’s airing of the hit daytime TV show.

Fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg, however, reined in Behar and said that she surely couldn’t mean such a thing.

What are the details?

The popular panel of women on Thursday discussed the protests in Seattle, which took center stage in this week’s news. At one point this week, demonstrators took over Seattle’s City Hall, and later declared one area neighborhood — “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” or CHAZ — as a police-free autonomous zone.

Trump railed against Washington state’s government about how it has been handling protesters and rioters, and specifically this week, referred to people who have “taken over Seattle” as “domestic terrorists.”

“[Trump] doesn’t help anything,” Behar spat. “As a matter of fact, he has the nerve to call anybody a domestic terrorist. He’s the domestic terrorist. He’s the one who’s been impeached for obstructing justice in this country.”

She wasn’t done there.

“He’s worried about the people in Seattle? By the way — if he wants to do something in Seattle, somebody better show him where it is on the map. I doubt he even knows where it is. Get back in your bunker. Get back in the bunker,” she ranted.

What did Whoopi do next?

Goldberg, seemingly taken aback by Behar’s remarks, attempted to bring the train back onto the tracks.

“Joy, I need you to clear up one thing: You were not calling the president a domestic terrorist. You were just saying that his take on this is a little crazier than you thought, is that right?” Goldberg prompted.

Clearly frustrated by having to discuss the president in a rational manner, Behar groused, “Um, yeah. I guess. I mean, I’m not calling anybody names like he does. It’s just that it seems ironic that he would be calling people domestic terrorists. I mean, I’ll get in trouble for calling him a domestic terrorist, [but] he won’t get in trouble for calling innocent people domestic terrorists.”

Behar relented, however, and said that she misspoke.

“That’s the irony of the situation,” she complained. “So I take it back. I take it back.”

Joy Behar says she won’t leave her house till November due to COVID-19 — and Trump, of course

“The View” co-host Joy Behar says she won’t go out in public until at least November — mainly because of COVID-19, but also because of President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

During a Friday panel discussion, piped in from the co-hosts’ at-home livestreams, Behar discussed the conditions in America.

On Friday, ABC News/Ipsos announced a poll finding that the majority of Americans aren’t ready for the immediate reopening of America.

Pointing to the poll, co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “A lot of people don’t seem to be ready to step outside yet according to a survey. Forty percent say they plan to avoid public spaces as much as possible until long after everything is over, but I don’t think you can actually do it like that.”

The poll found that Americans, “by a large 30-point margin,” are resistant to reopening the U.S. in the immediate days.

“[N]early two-thirds of Americans said they more closely align with the view that opening the country now is not advantageous since it will result in a higher death toll, while slightly more than one-third agree with the belief that an immediate reopening is beneficial to minimize the negative impact on the economy,” a portion of the report read.

Behar said that until everyone in her space was tested for coronavirus — including people in places she might deign to visit — she would be staying under elective lockdown.

“I’m prepared,” Behar boasted, “I think I’m going to have to stay put at least until November when Trump is out of office because he is not — he’s not putting the tests out there.”

She continued, “Until everybody gets tested or certainly people that I’m going to be visiting or places that I’m going to go to, I am not leaving this house.”

Meghan McCain said that she would refuse to co-host “The View” with Elisabeth Hasselbeck because of her comments telling people to pray against the coronavirus pandemic.

McCain made the comments on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”

“Somebody actually sent me a screenshot of my face when she said that,” McCain said to Cohen.

“I took this virus seriously from the very beginning, and I thought a lot of this rhetoric was really dangerous. I think it’s really, really unfortunate and dangerous that she said that,” she added.

Hasselbeck had returned to the show in early March and commented that people needed to pray against the coronavirus in addition to taking personal precautions.

“I think there can be a fine line between what is precaution, what is taking precaution, and what is panic,” said Hasselbeck on the previous show. “Yes, we’re going to take precautions, we’re going to Purell, pray that God’s got us in our tomorrows. We pray that this coronavirus is extinguished, that it stops in its tracks.”

McCain can be seen in the video grimacing at Hasselbeck’s comment.

Later McCain accused her of putting out misinformation about coronavirus.

“I don’t need to co-host with her again, and it’s unfortunate, because I’ve been a huge fan for a long time,” McCain said. “Anybody who is screwing around with this virus and putting out sort of misinformation, I don’t really have a lot of time for right now.”

There are nearly 900,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., with more than 50,000 deaths.

Coronavirus Pandemic COVID-19 Daytime tv Intelwars Joy Behar Protesters Stay-at-home protesters The View

‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar likens lockdown protests to terrorism: ‘Terrorists … bring guns to things’

“The View” co-host Joy Behar said that gun-toting protesters were like terrorists for bringing their weapons to protest lockdown orders.

What are the details?

During Monday’s broadcast, Behar blasted Americans engaging in the protest of stay-at-home orders, and suggested they leave their guns at home if they want to demonstrate.

During a segment, Behar — blaming “right-wing media” — said that while it is understandable people are upset about closed state economies, it was inexcusable to protest in public amid the COVID-19 crisis.

“These people are being egged on by right-wing media,” she insisted. “People like Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh. And why are you bringing guns to a rally? You want to call yourself protesters, leave your guns home. Those are terrorists who bring guns to things. To rallies. I don’t trust that at all. And don’t listen to these people.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin, however, said that President Donald Trump was to blame for inciting an insurrection as well as condoning violence.

“What really disturbed me was the president’s tweets, you know, you have the president saying things like ‘Liberate Virginia’ and then also, in the same sentence, bringing up the Second Amendment,” Hostin said. “And, to Joy’s point, you saw protesters with guns, and I think, you know, he’s in a sense, implying an incited — an insurrection.”

She continued, “I think the argument can be made that he is inciting violence by these tweets. He’s inciting government insurrection, and many are saying, ‘Well, it’s his free speech,’ but the Supreme Court has found many times that if you are inciting lawlessness that’s leading to violence, that that type of speech isn’t protected.”

Hostin pointed out that she was “shocked” that Trump would be “inciting this kind of behavior,” and “inciting these protests.”

What else?

Behar later turned the focus back on the media, and said that Limbaugh and Jones were both part of an “extreme right-wing media” that is to blame for the insurrection.

“There’s so much, you know, lying and negativity coming out of this extreme right wing media, you know, between Limbaugh and Infowars and all that other stuff, that it’s very hard for the media to counteract all of that,” she fretted.

‘The View’s’ Joy Behar tries to get Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom to blast Trump — but he hits back with only praise for the president

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) appeared on “The View” Friday, where he sang President Donald Trump’s praises over the COVID-19 outbreak.

What are the details?

During an exchange about coronavirus in the U.S., co-host Joy Behar asked if Newsom was sucking up to President Trump in order to avoid retribution.

Newsom, however, lauded the president’s efforts as “proactive” and refused to say anything negative about him.

“Governor, it’s no secret that you’ve had a combative relationship with Trump in the past, but lately, you’ve been praising him for the help he’s giving,” Behar said. “Of course, you have to, because look at how he treats governors who don’t kiss the ring. The governor of Washington, the governor of Michigan, he said they were not appreciative and told Mike Pence, ‘Don’t call them back.’ Do you feel like you have to feed this guy’s ego to get the respirators, to get the PPEs? Is that what’s going on?”

Newsom admitted that he’s had issues with the president in the past and has had differences of opinion as well.

“Let me just acknowledge the frame of your question,” he responded. “We’re involved in over 68 lawsuits with the Trump administration, and so there’s no question we have had our differences of opinion on many issues, but I just want to remind you that you and many others that maybe are not aware of this.

“We have been at this since late January. California got a head start in many respects, where no one was really paying much attention. We started working with the administration directly to get these repatriated flights from mainland China into the state of California. Many states turned their back on those flights and those repatriation missions. California embraced them,” he continued.

“We also had that Grand Princess, that large cruise ship, where we worked very collaboratively with the federal government and developed strong relationships of trust with emergency planning and how we can bring those passengers back into our diverse communities and all across the rest of the country,” he added.

“As a consequence of that, our relationship began earlier than most. And so from that perspective, all I can say is that, from my perspective, the relationship has been strong,” Newsom noted. “I’m not doing it to kiss the ring — I’m not doing it in a way, you know, I’m just being forthright with the president. He returns calls, he reaches out, he’s been proactive.”

Newsom concluded, “We got that Mercy ship down here in Los Angeles. That was directly because he sent it down here. Two thousand medical units came to the state of California, these FMS, these field medical stations. That’s been very, very helpful, and to the extent, we’re going to need more, and I’ll let you know in a few weeks if that relationship continues.”

Community spread Coronavirus Intelwars Joy Behar self-quarantine social distancing The View

Joy Behar to sit out from ‘The View’ because of coronavirus: ‘I’m in a higher risk group’

Joy Behar, one of the hosts of “The View,” will announce Friday that she will be taking a break from the show because she’s in a “higher risk” demographic for coronavirus, according to Variety.

Behar is reportedly pausing her participation on the show at the urging of her daughter. No one who works on “The View” has tested positive for coronavirus, and the show will be filmed without a live audience to lower the risk. But Behar, who is 77 years old, will take extra precaution.

“I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy,” Behar will say on a pre-taped segment of Friday’s show. “I don’t look my age, but I’m actually up there. The number makes me dizzy.”

The other hosts: Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain, and Sunny Hostin, will continue to appear on the show.

Behar has been critical of President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis, and has suggested that Trump resign to let Vice President Mike Pence take over the issue.

“You know, don’t you think that this is a good time for [Trump] to resign?” Behar has said on the show. “I mean, Pence has been shown to be rather capable, I believe. I feel a little more confident with Pence and [National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony] Fauci at the helm. I do not feel any confidence with this guy.”

The coronavirus known as COVID-19 is highly contagious, and is particularly dangerous to adults over the age of 60 or people who have underlying health conditions.

A study in China found that the overall fatality rate for coronavirus patients was around 2.3%, but it spikes to 15% for adults over the age of 80.

In the United States, health officials have not yet told people they have to fully self quarantine, but federal officials have encouraged “social distancing” methods to minimize contact with big crowds, and governors of several states have enacted bans on large gatherings of varying sizes.

2020 presidential election Democratic debates Intelwars Joy Behar Meghan McCain Michael Bloomberg The View Whoopi Goldberg

Sparks fly on ‘The View’ after Meghan McCain blasts Joy Behar: ‘You guys have done a p***-poor job of convincing me that I should vote for a Democrat’

Co-hosts Meghan McCain and Joy Behar squared off on “The View” Tuesday over whether former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would make a good Democratic presidential nominee against President Donald Trump.

What are the details?

The co-hosts discussed the news that Bloomberg will be in Las Vegas on Wednesday for his first Democratic presidential debate.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg pointed out that Bloomberg will likely take fire for controversial statements and stances that have emerged over the last week.

McCain added that Bloomberg clinching the nomination is hardly a sure bet, and insisted that it will be “a lot harder” than what his team might think.

Clearly disturbed her fellow co-hosts’ critical remarks against Bloomberg, Behar spat, “[I]f we keep taking the Democrats down, Trump is going to win.”

McCain fired back, “If Democrats don’t take [Bloomberg] out, Republicans will. … You want to go up against Trump and you want to take the moral high ground, I don’t know if [Bloomberg] is going to be the guy.

“I’m supposed to give Bloomberg a pass? Not on this show,” she added.

‘Who are you voting for?’

Behar, apparently taken aback by McCain’s disdain for Bloomberg, demanded, “I would like to know who you are going to vote for. Who are you voting for?”

McCain responded by pointing out her vote was none of Behar’s business.

“Who I vote for is none of your business,” McCain quipped, “but I am not voting for Trump and I sure as hell am not voting for Bloomberg.”

Behar took it as McCain wouldn’t be voting.

“So you’re not going to vote. So you’re not going to vote,” Behar griped. “You’re not voting for Trump and you’re not voting for a Democrat. You said that already.”

McCain, undaunted, fired back, “[Y]ou guys have done a p***-poor job of convincing me to vote for a Democrat.”
