Sunny Hostin & Ana Navarro Test Positive For COVID Live On The View – Moments Before Kamala Harris Interview!
It has not been an easy day for the ladies at The View!
For starters, moderator Whoopi Goldberg has been out of the studio since Tuesday — meaning she was missing out on a HUGE in-person interview with Vice President Kamala Harris on Friday’s episode. Talk about potentially having some major FOMO!
But it turns out what she was missing was a giant clusterf**k. Because that was only the beginning of the daytime talk show’s problems…
Following the first commercial break, producers abruptly asked Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro to leave the set just moments before Harris planned to grace the stage. Of course, the two ladies understandably looked pretty perplexed as they walked away. After someone told the co-hosts they were “gonna bring you back later,” Joy Behar asked if she should introduce the vice president for the next segment, to which one producer replied “yes” while another shouted “no.”
The show eventually cut to commercial, and when they returned, Joy explained Sunny and Ana’s sudden exits to the audience:
“Since this is going to be a major news story any minute now, what happened is, Sunny and Ana both apparently tested positive for COVID.”
Oh, s**t! She continued:
“No matter how hard we try, these things happen. They probably had a breakthrough case, and they’ll be okay, I’m sure because they’re both vaccinated up the wazoo!”
In terms of the Veep, the 78-year-old comedian promised Kamala would still be stopping by to chat once everything was good to go:
“The vice president is being prepped for her arrival. They cleaned the table, they washed the hands. Everybody is getting all cleaned up, and she’ll be out here in a second.”
Take a look at the crazy moment (below):
Joy may have spoken too soon! A producer later informed her and Sara Haines that they would be interviewing Harris remotely — even though she was still in the building — out of an abundance of caution.
However, the 56-year-old politician took her sweet time and reportedly didn’t appear on the show until a lot later. When she did finally come on, Joy immediately expressed:
“I just want to say, I hope that you’re in a safe spot right now. We did everything we could to make sure you’re safe because we value you so much.”
To which Kamala replied:
“Thank you, Joy, and to everyone and, listen, Sunny and Ana are strong women, and I know they’re fine. But it really does speak to the fact they’re vaccinated, and vaccines really make all the difference because otherwise, we would be concerned about hospitalization and worse.”
True and all, but… if they’re just doing it remotely anyway, couldn’t Sunny and Ana have also joined in remotely?
Anyway, you can the resulting interview (below):
Wow, this surely will be an episode that the hosts will never forget! Though they’ll wish they could…
In all seriousness, though, we hope that Sunny and Ana are getting their rest at this time, and we wish them a speedy recovery. Please, do your part and get vaccinated because, as Kamala said, it truly makes a big difference.
Get well soon, y’all!
