It takes a lot for Joy Behar to remain silent on The View. The veteran co-host has been on the talk show from the start and isn’t afraid to say what she thinks. She often does without Meghan McCain because their political views are completely opposite. The conservative co-host finally said something that left the comedian speechless and things became very embarrassing.
The ladies were in their “Hot Topics” segment, where they talked about Elizabeth Warren retiring from the presidential race. Although Meghan McCain was never a Warren supporter, she felt sad that no other women remained in the race.
My father said, “You could be president Meghan.” I feel like if I had a son right now, and it was a girl, I don’t know what I would say anymore because… where’s my female president? Why are we still here as Americans?” she said.
“Like, it’s frustrating. I wish she was a conservative woman, happy it’s Nikki Haley or somebody else.” I think women are better leaders because we’re more compassionate. Where’s my female president? I’d like a woman to be president during my lifetime,” Meghan McCain continued.
That’s when Joy Behar stepped in and said, “Then maybe you should run for president.
“Would you vote for me, Joy?” Meghan McCain asked.
Behar was speechless, and from his reaction, Meghan McCain should not count on his vote anytime soon.
The View: Are Meghan McCain and Behar friends?
Despite their heated debates at the “Hot Topics” table, Meghan McCain and Joy Behar have a nice friendship in contrast to the rumors circulating about them.
“That really hurts.” Meghan McCain told Entertainment Tonight she doesn’t like Joy Behar. “It really hurts me because our dressing rooms are next to each other and you and I have the same emotional reaction to things – sometimes in different ways – but we’re both upset the same way, the same amount of the same things. And I would like people to give us a break, for real”.
Joy Behar had nice words to say about Meghan McCain and he also said that he influenced her on some issues.
“Like today, I was talking about how, you know, I think a moderate needs to win the election to beat [President Donald] Trump. Originally, I would have said I wanted Elizabeth Warren because she was an exciting new person. But I’m not sure she could do it. So, now I’m back in reality and I think she changed her positions a little bit, moderate them, change them,” Joy Behar said.
