Joy Behar dumped on Queen Elizabeth II for living too long and not allowing her son King Charles to have his time in the sun, a typically trashy take from the queen bee of the leftist hive on “The View.”
On Tuesday’s edition of the long-running ABC daytime gabfest, the ladies around the table were discussing the newly crowned British monarch’s cancer diagnosis, news that comes less than a year after his official coronation.
Buckingham Palace announced that the 75-year-old son of the beloved queen had cancer and would be undergoing treatment as he seeks to recover and while as the world offered up thoughts and prayers, the foghorn-voice redhead groused that he’s somehow been cheated by his mother’s longevity.

After co-host Whoopi Goldberg expressed hope that having Prince Harry – who flew back to England – and Prince William at their father’s side would be beneficial to the king, Behar took a cheap shot at the beloved former queen who held the throne for a record 70 years until she passed away in 2022.
“I hope that will help his prognosis because sometimes, less stress can help,” Goldberg said.
“Poor Charles,” Behar clucked, as Goldberg moaned “He waited so long,” to get his chance.
“So long,” Behar agreed, “I mean, the woman was in the position for 70 years, you know, and the longest reign. I think that she could have used some term limits,” she said, drawing laughter from the live audience.
“You know what I mean? “It’s like, why not step down and let Charles have his day in the sun?” Behar asked. “The poor guy, he finally gets to be king, and now he has an illness. That doesn’t seem fair…there’s something wrong about it.”
It was a stunning clueless statement from the 81-year-old host who didn’t seem to realize that there are no term limits for monarchs, much like members of the U.S. Congress who also hang around until they die, like Dianne Feinstein.
Behar then upped the ante on tackiness after Goldberg used the opportunity to urge people to get their affairs in order before they die.
“There’s this thing called Swedish death cleanup,” Behar said. “That says you should clean everything up before you die so you don’t leave all this mess for your kids.”
Even though Behar’s cheap shot at the deceased queen was tasteless, it was far from the worst thing that the co-hosts have said about her when Sunny Hostin exploited her death to make one of her usual anti-white racist points.
What’s Sunny’s take on the death of Queen Elizabeth? “She wore a crown with pillaged stones from India and Africa.”
“I think though we can mourn the queen and not the empire,” she said.

“I studied in London, and so I lived in London for a while, and I got caught up in the pomp and circumstance of it all as well. I wanted to see the changing of the guards. I wanted to see everything. I wanted to meet the Queen because I think we all love glam and pageantry.” she said after the queen’s death. “And I think, though, we can mourn the queen and not the empire.”
“Because if you really think about what the monarchy was built on, it was built on the backs of black and brown people. She wore a crown with pillaged stones from India and Africa, and now what you are seeing, at least in the black communities that I’m a part of, they want reparations,” she added, calling for newly crowned King Charles to dole out reparations to the former colonies.
“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement announcing the news.
“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual,” the statement read. “His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”
