Joy Behar snapped on the ABC talk show The View once again on Friday, this time on a guest who suggested she needs to find another job!
Behar Snaps At Guest
The Sun reported that Rick Klein, Political Director at ABC News, made an appearance on The View to discuss the November midterm elections. Co-host Ana Navarro asked for the political pundit’s opinion on the midterms after she claimed that Democrats have pulled ahead in the wake of the overturn of Roe v. Wade.
As Klein tried to give his predictions, Behar abruptly interrupted him, inquiring, “When your reporters say they’re worried about gas. They’re worried about that, do they follow up and ask if people think the Republicans will be able to fix this?”
Klein tried to answer Behar by saying that his reporters don’t want to have arguments with voters, but she interrupted him again and said, “It’s a follow-up question.”
Kline fired back, proposing, “Do you want the job? We’ll send you out there right now.”
Behar didn’t seem to take this well, and the moment got tense as she said that she didn’t see this as an argument, and instead felt that it was only a follow up question.
“We need to give Joy a cameo on the show,” conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin interjected.
“Seriously. You’ve got a permanent invitation from me,” Klein then said to Behar, who finally stopped talking as the segment continued.
Check out the tense exchange for yourself in the video below starting around the 3:22 mark.
I Have No Plans To Retire’
This comes after Behar turned 80 earlier this month and celebrated by taking a cruise to Spain. Though she’s now an octogenarian, the radically liberal Behar has no plans to give up her gig on The View.
“I just signed a contract so I’ll be here for a while,” she told People Magazine as she celebrated her birthday. “I have no plans to retire.”
Behar went on to gush over the morning talk show, which she was an original panelist on when it premiered back in 1997.
“It’s really, you know, something that is an important show in many ways,” she boasted. “Sometimes I don’t believe that, as I’ve been here since the beginning, but we’re the most-watched show in daytime. Most-watched!
I’m happy to be a part of it. So no, I’m not going anywhere. I’m having a good time.”
‘I’m A Powerful Person’
Conservatives everywhere will certainly be disappointed to see Behar say that she’s “not going anywhere,” as she regularly enrages them with her ignorantly liberal take on things. She told TIME earlier this year that she “favorite target over at Breitbart and Fox” because she is a “powerful person” with a platform.
“You have a power when you have that microphone,” Behar said. “People don’t like it. They don’t like it that I’m a powerful person on The View, saying things that they don’t like, but I’m sorry, that is where I’m at. I’m a powerful person on The View; I was a powerful person as a comedian holding a microphone. Too bad.”
If Behar keeps snapping at people like she did at Klein, however, she may find that her days on The View could be more numbered than she thinks.
