Joy Behar, one of the far-left co-hosts on ABC’s “The View,” was apparently less than pleased with fellow far-left co-host Whoopi Goldberg after Whoopi brought up the time in March of 2022 when Joy took a tumble out of her chair.
As background, Joy aimed for her chair and missed at the very beginning of the episode and had to be hoisted off of the floor and back into place by her fellow hosts as the audience watched and tried not to chuckle.
Then, during a recent broadcast of the show, during which the co-hosts were discussing the extremely awkward moment where Mitch McConnell went completely silent for half a minute in the middle of a press conference, Joy got visibly annoyed with her co-hosts for joking about the incident and not believing her excuse for it.
Particularly, Behar tried to claim that it was the swivel chair that caused her to take the unfortunate tumble, but the co-hosts didn’t believe her. Rather, Whoopi and the rest of the panel, including Sara Haines, Alyssa Farah Griffin, and Rachel Lindsay, a guest host, burst into laughter when she tried making that excuse and then teased her about it.
The discussion of her fall bean when the co-hosts and their guest watched the incident where Mitch McConnell froze at the podium, with Goldberg saying, “I mean, that is scary, that is scary to watch.” That’s when Behar chimed in and brought up her fall, saying, “He’s not well. He keeps falling too. Remember when I fell on stage?”
Whoopi then started the joking about the incident, saying, “I do! I wasn’t even going to bring it up.” Behar claimed, “I don’t care,” though that was quickly belied by her reaction into the giggling that came when she said the swivel chair was at fault. “You act like it’s not true!” Behar snapped while they laughed at her after she claimed, “Why? My tush missed the seat! That’s all. I was trying and the thing swung and I went down.”
Whoopi, explaining what the co-hosts saw when Joy missed her seat, said, “We saw you trying to figure out how to not fall onto the floor and that was scary because we didn’t know whether to catch you and annoy you because we’re touching you…”
Joy kept trying to claim the seat was at fault, saying, “The chair was moving! It was like a ride at Coney Island!” Whoopi, mocking her by pretending to agree, said, “Uh-huh. No, the chair was moving…” Meanwhile, everyone else continued to laugh.

And watch the fall here:
And here’s the video of McConnell freezing:
In addition to sparking a fight between the clucking, leftist hens on “The View,” McConnell’s frozen moment has Americans discussing the advanced age of many of America’s politicians, leading many to argue that America is a gerontocracy and some, such as Elon Musk, to call for a constitutional amendment to keep people from being in the legislature for a long time or into advanced age.
