Ana Navarro Updates Guest Rick Klein On Poll Results
On Friday, Rick Klein, the political director of ABC News appeared on the show to discuss politics and the forthcoming midterm elections. Ana Navarro informed him that back in the summer the Republicans were ahead in polls. However, after the overturn of Roe v. Wade, the Democrats have jumped ahead in numbers.
She enquired the guest what his predictions for the upcoming elections were. However, as he was about to start talking, Joy halted him and asked, “…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?”
Joy Behar Interrupts Guest Panelist Rick Klein
Rick started explaining the situation when Joy interrupted again and said, “It’s a follow-up question.”
“Do you want the job? We’ll send you out there right now,” joked Rick as he continued his explanations.
However, Joy conveniently ignored the joke and asked her question stating it wasn’t an argument, but a follow-up question during the tense on-air moment.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a conservative host on The View panel, chimed in and said, “We need to give Joy a cameo on the show.”
Rick joined in, “Seriously. You’ve got a permanent invitation from me.”
As the other hosts continued talking on the subject, Joy simply smiled and shared a glance with the guest.
Joy Behar Celebrates 80th Birthday With No Plans To Retire
Earlier this month, Joy celebrated her 80th birthday and doesn’t wish to retire anytime soon. The View panelist first appeared on the show in 1997 and has been a part of the talk show ever since. However, given how long she has been associated with the ABC show, she still doesn’t wish to opt for retirement.
Talking to People, she said, “I just signed a contract so I’ll be here for a while. I have no plans to retire.”
As she gushed over her time at the morning talk show, she said, “It’s really, you know, something that is an important show in many ways. Sometimes I don’t believe that, as I’ve been here since the beginning, but we’re the most-watched show in the 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.”
Although Joy has been a part of the show for quite a long time, she was fired from the talk show in 2013. Later on, the comedian was asked to return and take her place on the panel in 2015. Yet, the host claims that she doesn’t know the real reason she was fired from the show.
