Joy Behar doesn’t like all the criticism President Obama has received for going on The View while refusing to meet with any world leaders at the United Nations meeting in New York City this week.
“Obama is being bashed for doing the View instead of meeting world leaders,” Behar, a co-host of The View and outspoken liberal comedian, tweeted. “Maybe he’d rather talk to me than Netanyahu. Ever think of that?” She also tweeted a photo from Obama’s appearance on the show, which she described as a “lovefest.”
Behar was referring to the fact that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will, for the first time, visit the United States but not have a personal meeting with President Obama. Reports have suggested that the Obama turned down his meeting request, but the White House has denied that claim.
Behar also appeared to tweak the Secret Service over their recent Colombian sex scandal. “The Secret Service was very nice to me,” she said. “And I mean that in a good way.”
