Rumors have been swirling this week that Joy Behar is preparing to retire from the ABC talk show “The View.” During today’s episode of the morning talk show, she finally addresses these rumors specifically.
One day after Variety reported that Behar would retire from “The View” in the summer of 2022, the 77 year-old liberal claimed that there was no truth to this.
“I’m not leaving the show,” she said. “Let me say the rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated.”
Behar went on to suggest that the coronavirus pandemic has forced her to change her retirement plans.
“You know here’s the thing, what am I going to do?” she said. “This pandemic has changed the game. At one point, you think, gee, I could retire and take a cruise around the world. I won’t even watch reruns of ‘Love Boat’ at this point, so where am I going to go? What will I do? I need to be on television.”
She then took a dig at the conservative media outlet Breitbart News, saying, “Also, let’s not forget I provide employment for right-wing media. I mean, I am a job creator over at Breitbart. Everything I say appears on Breitbart.”
“So funny,” the supposedly conservative Meghan McCain said. “When I read it online yesterday, I just called Joy immediately, and I was, like, so this isn’t an option. You’re not leaving. I’m not leaving. None of us are leaving. There’s a pandemic and an election, and the world is insane. Also, I’m pregnant, and I need advice from you about being pregnant from someone that probably does pregnancy similar to how I’m going to do it. So it’s not an option, Joy. You’re not leaving. None of us are going to let you go.”
“All right, all right, all right,” Behar replied. “The answer is no, I’m going nowhere.”

Conservatives everywhere rejoiced at the prospect of Behar leaving “The View,” as she is known for mouthing off about her ignorant liberal views on the program. Unfortunately, it looks like we are going to have to put up with Behar’s nonsense indefinitely, because it doesn’t seem like she’s going anywhere anytime soon.
