Instead of talking about President Biden’s interview with CNN the previous night, where he falsely claimed the U.S. was not in a recession, the Wednesday edition of ABC’s The View kicked off their birthday bash for co-host Joy Behar with a special video message from the President and First Lady. Wishing Behar a happy 80th birthday, the Bidens made laughable declarations about how much Behar and The View mean to American society.
“Some famous friends and well-wishers are sending their best to you like this cat who is a pain in the butt. What can we do? We talk about him all the time. It’s embarrassing,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg announced ahead of the video.
After a “happy birthday” wish “from the whole Biden family” via Joe, Jill made a quip about Behar’s name. “No one is better named than you. You brought joy to so many of your friends and admirers with your trademark humor and that smile that lights up the room,” she said. “And as a former teacher, I know that there are so many students out there whose lives you've changed.”
