New! Listen to our weekly View in Review podcast.
Joy Behar was in rare form Wednesday morning on The View as the ladies discussed handling political differences within a marriage. Unlike Cheryl Hines, who condemned husband Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for comparing COVID-19 vaccine mandates to the Holocaust but has continued to stand by him, Behar said she could never be with someone who doesn't agree with her "fundamental worldview" or political ideology. "I could not do it," said the longtime co-host. "If you're a Trump supporter, I'd rather be in a convent, frankly."
"I feel like marriage is difficult enough," said Behar, as the co-hosts discussed Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers "agree to disagree" philosophy and the Hines-RFK Jr. debacle. "You disagree on so many things. Where to send your kids to school, where do you want to live? Should we visit the in-laws this weekend or next? There's a million things to disagree on, but the fundamental worldview, you should agree."
Behar went on to say that while disagreeing can be "fun," it's how you disagree that matters. "Would we be married?" asked Whoopi. "I think we would all be fine to live together," replied Behar. "We're not violent people. No one here is crazy — well, maybe one of us."

Elsewhere in Joy-isms... In the first Hot Topics segment, Behar appeared to be picking at something on her face when Whoopi interrupted herself to ask, "Did you just give me the finger?"
"No!" replied Behar with a laugh. "This is the finger I pick my nose with."
Their funny interaction begins at the 6:34 mark:
