Joy Behar: Talking About On-Air Fight With Bill O’Reilly
Joy Behar, the departing co-host of “The View,” joined comedian Judy Gold for a night of laughs at 92Y on March 12, 2013. In this clip, Behar dished about her much buzzed about on-air confrontation with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in 2010, where she walked off set after O’Reilly made controversial comments about the 9/11 terrorists.
On our stage, Behar pulled no punches:
O’Reilly is another joke…the day I walked off the show on him, I was really pissed at him. Here’s a guy that’s saying the most stupid thing as far as I was concerned, implying that all Muslims are terrorists.
“That is incorrect logic, it’s impossible, so stop saying it and be quiet…and he wouldn’t stop, and he kept going, so I didn’t want to deal with him.”
Behar also shared details about co-host Barbara Walter’s reaction:
“Barbara did not like it: ‘No, you sit here.’”
Behar shot back, “No, I don’t sit here… I don’t!”
