Friday’s The View was a chaotic mess, as two hosts left mid-show before their VIP guest even arrived. Vice President Kamala Harris was that guest, and though she has faced strong criticism for basically ignoring the border crisis she’s supposed to be in charge of, she still found time to come talk to the friendly talk show hosts.
After co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro unexpectedly left mid-show because their COVID tests came back positive, Secret Service scrambled to find a “safe space” for Harris to Skype in from. Only Joy Behar and Sara Haines were there to question her in the last 6 minutes of the show and nearly all of the questions came from the far-left.
And even though they asked about the southern border, they didn’t ask the VP why she hasn’t visited since last June. Even though they asked about the unvaccinated, they didn’t ask if she contributed to vaccine hesitancy from minorities by trashing the vaccine when it came out under President Trump.
Joy Behar started off complaining about Republican governors, before asking the Democrat if she could “make life less pleasant for the unvaccinated” by making federal vaccine mandates: “Is it time to get tougher with mandates and make life less pleasant for the unvaccinated?” she hopefully asked. But Harris only urged people to get vaccinated, instead.

Sara Haines pushed the VP from the left on immigration. Speaking of the debunked story that the border patrol used whips on Haitian migrants, she fretted, “We’ve been discussing those disturbing images of U.S. Border patrol agents on horseback inhumanely corralling Haitians at the Texas border, you’ve been tasked with immigration, how do you explain this?”
Harris repeated her previous condemnation of the border patrol, which prompted Haines to follow up by demanding asylum for migrants: “Will the Biden administration halt all deportation of Haitians at Texas border and allow Haitians to apply for asylum?” After the Vice President touted how they were giving temporary protective status to 100,000 migrants, she faced one neutral question from Haines on the Afghanistan pull-out fiasco.
But Behar ended the short interview by going back to the progressive questions. Demonizing the Texas fetal heartbeat law, she whined:
Abortion rights are under attack. You’ve expressed outrage over the Texas law banning abortion after six weeks, women don’t even know they’re pregnant at that point, can you, in 56 seconds can you answer that question? What are we going to do?
Harris voiced support for fighting back against the law, which prompted applause from the hosts and audience.
KAMALA HARRIS: Well, we are going to stand together, unified, and fight for women’s constitutional rights to make decisions about their own bodies. [applause]
BEHAR: Absolutely. I put my faith in you.
HARRIS: Full stop.
As bad polls and stories have come out in recent months about Harris, the View hosts have been desperately trying to salvage the Democrat’s reputation. Last month, the liberal hosts tried to argue Harris’s low approval was due to racism and sexism. In another show, they trashed disgruntled staff for complaining about her “abuse.”
