Joy Behar defends Obama’s ‘View’ appearance; ‘He’d rather talk to me than Netanyahu’

We don’t normally find ourselves agreeing with Joy Behar, but we’re with her on this 100 percent. Of course the president would rather talk with her — or David Letterman, or Jay-Z, or Beyoncé, or Glamour magazine or the Pimp with a Limp — than the prime minister of Israel. And why not? The “View” host correctly described the appearance as a “love fest.” The president and first lady even brought gift baskets of White House beer and M&Ms.

At least Behar was aware enough of events outside the TV studio to know that Obama was being bashed for blowing off face-to-face meetings with the world’s leaders.

Behar was very likely joking around, but the topics on the floor of the U.N. this week are anything but a laughing matter.
