Joy Behar, the loudest and farthest left voice on ‘The View’ is apparently taking some time away from the show due to Coronavirus fears.
Behar does not have Coronavirus, she is trying to avoid getting it.
‘The View’s’ Joy Behar Takes Time Off Due to Coronavirus Concerns (EXCLUSIVE)
Joy Behar is taking time off as a co-host of “The View” as a safety precaution against coronavirus, Variety has learned.
Behar, 77, announced her decision Thursday during a pre-taped episode of “The View” that will air Friday. Neither she nor any of the staff members that work on the ABC daytime talk show have tested positive for the coronavirus. But Behar has decided that she’s staying home for now — at the urging of her daughter — to keep herself safe from the threat of getting sick.
“I’m in a higher risk group because of my age, but I’m perfectly healthy,” Behar says on the show. “I don’t look my age, but I’m actually up there. The number makes me dizzy.”
Behar will not be on “The View” next week, and then she’ll decide when to return after that.
The remaining co-hosts of “The View” – which includes Whoopi Goldberg, Meghan McCain and Sunny Hostin – will continue to appear on the talk show. This week, “The View” followed many other daytime and late-night programs that stopped allowing a live studio audience at tapings.
Because Joy Behar is Joy Behar, she couldn’t resist trying to blame Trump for the disease and demand that he resign over it.
Joy Behar Declares Trump’s Presidency Is Over: ‘Time for Him to Resign’
Joy Behar, who certainly doesn’t like Vice President Mike Pence, pretended like she wouldn’t mind if he was president now and recommended Trump call it quits:
“Don’t you think this is a good time for him to resign? Pence has shown to be rather capable I believe,” she stated, adding that she feels “a little more confidence” with Pence and [Dr. Anthony] Fauci at the helm.
Just in case you were keeping count, this is at least the fourth time she’s demanded Trump resign since he took office.
We hope Joy Behar enjoys her time off and takes as much of it as she needs.
