“The View” announced that Alyssa Farah Griffin, who oversaw communications for the White House during the Trump administration, and Ana Navarro were named as the program’s new co-hosts in August.
Whoopi Goldberg, the co-host, stated that by including many viewpoints, they were paying homage to the show’s original creator, Barbara Walters. Daily appearances by Farah Griffin will replace Navarro, who will still host the program but less frequently. Farah Griffin and Navarro, who are both Republicans and scathing critics of Donald Trump, were featured in an ABC montage of important appearances.
To attract more “squishy” viewers who are unsure of what socialist Democrats are actually doing to the country, the show definitely wants “token” Republicans aboard.
The host of ABC’s daytime talk show, Joy Behar, has recently lost some of her enthusiasm.
It might be related to the upcoming midterm elections and her knowledge that the polls do not predict her party’s win. The 80-year-old ultimately lost her cool with her producer Brian Teta during a live television broadcast when he attempted to cut her off and transition to a commercial.
She said that “the Democrats need to get behind John Fetterman because he’s qualified, and Mehmet Oz is a loser.” as they discussed the Pennsylvania Senate race between Republicans Dr. Mehmet Oz and John Fetterman.
As she fixed her gaze on the audience, she murmured, “Let’s just talk”
As her producer announced off-camera that the show needed to transition to a commercial, she stated, “Brian doesn’t like that I called him a loser.”
“No, I don’t like that we’re out of time,” the producer responded. “We’ve gotta go to break … we can come back.”
Whoopi Goldberg, her co-host, questioned her, “Would you like to come back and say what you wanted to say?” She replied, “Alright.” Infuriated, her co-host answered, “Sure.”
“I mean, you should actually be sitting up here today!” Teta responded “no” and shrugged in response to Goldberg’s joke.

She admitted to being depressed this week because she finds it difficult to understand why people would choose to support the Republican Party in this election, despite the fact that she and the Democratic leadership want voters to think Republicans pose a threat to democracy. Unlike the peasants who watch the show and are unable to continue voting for socialism, Behar has a net worth of $30 million and earns a salary of $7 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
She would therefore struggle to understand why others consider costs to be the most important factor when making purchases of goods and services. Behar informed her audience on her program that “the Republican Party is not going to help you.”
“Well, what’s depressing is that the New York Times released a poll today that says that 70% of voters agree that democracy is under threat,” the cohost exclaimed.
“I find that so depressing, I can’t begin to tell you. The Republican Party is happy to let corporations never pay another tax the rest of their days, they will cut Social Security, they’re going to cut lunches for children,” she proclaimed without providing evidence.
“They are not going to help you, so why would you vote for them? And yet, I see that it’s very close, that people are not understanding what the stakes are. And I find it, I find it sad and depressing.” she complained.
Sunny Hostin, her co-host, was behind her.
She continued, “What I found depressing because I was riveted to the debates I think they’re so interesting,”
“I realized from this morning that something like 10% of voters change their mind based on debates, going into the midterms, you know most people have already decided – two months in, they’ve decided who they’re going to vote for,” she added in.
“So it’s almost as if they don’t matter about the policies, they don’t matter what about people have done, they don’t matter, the character doesn’t matter, it just matters which jersey they’re wearing.”
Republican Alyssa Farah Griffin tried to reason with her fellow cohosts to calm them down.
Griffin remarked, “I want to say this respectfully, I worry there might be a blind spot about at this table is the fact that the average American family lost $6,000 in annual wages last year due to inflation.”
“Blame Biden or don’t but there is a reason that Tim Ryan is running in Ohio away from Biden and away from Nancy Pelosi,” she continued.
