The View’s Whoopi Goldberg wasted no time shutting down cohost Ana Navarro on Monday’s show in defense of absent cohost Joy Behar.
The harpies at the table were talking about the death of Bill Geddie, who cofounded the daytime talk show with Barbara Walters in 1997 — Geddie died last Thursday reportedly from “coronary-related factors.”
Sherri Shepherd was sitting in for Behar as a guest host to pay tribute to Geddie and was recalling the time when the cofounder confronted her for not being more vocal when the late John McCain appeared on the show.
“Bill called me and he said, ‘Why didn’t you say anything? You sit at that table, you have an opinion, you jump in, you make yourself known,'” she recounted. “He was so harsh and I was, like, “You’re not going to hug me or…?”‘
And that’s when Navarro piped in to say, “He hired Joy and fired Joy. And she still loves him!”
“He didn’t fire Joy,” a very serious Whoopi Goldberg said while shaking her head. “No, he did not, that was … yeah.”
But is this just another case of the left deciding what words mean or do not mean?
US Weekly explained what took place when Behar was “temporarily let go.”
“In 2013, Behar — who was one of the original hosts alongside Barbara Walters — was temporarily let go from The View for two years. Her cohost Elisabeth Hasselback was also fired at the time,” the magazine noted.
“Joy Behar has been instrumental in the success of The View from the very beginning,” ABC said in a statement at the time, according to US Weekly. “We wish her all the best in this next chapter, and are thrilled that we have her for the remainder of the season.”
Certainly sounds like Behar was fired — albeit not for good as she returned in 2015. In the real world, that is known as being “rehired.”
Even Behar acknowledged that she was fired during a 2018 appearance on “Good Morning America.”
“But it gives hope to people. You know, you could be fired from a show, and they hire you back on the same show. They know that they made a mistake!” Behar told anchor Robin Roberts at the time.
