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.
