Joy Behar Responds To Michael Flynn Guilty Plea With Pure Joy

A producer interrupted “The View” co-host so she could share the breaking news on air.

Say hello to your new favorite GIF.

On Friday, a producer for “The View” interrupted co-host Joy Behar on air to deliver some breaking news. Behar read from a notecard the producer handed to her, sharing the news that President Donald Trump’s former security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

“Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the [Robert] Mueller team,” Behar read in disbelief, “and is prepared to testify that, as a candidate, Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians.”

However, the news Behar read appears to have been taken from ABC News’ Brian Ross, who was later suspended for four weeks without pay for an error in his reporting. Late Friday, Ross informed viewers on “World News Tonight” that Trump asked Flynn to contact Russians during the transition after the election, not before as was originally reported.

Still, the news of the guilty plea caused Behar to fling her arms in the air and yell “Yes!” as the audience cheered.

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and it’s beginning to look a lot like collusion,” guest Ana Navarro said.

Co-host Meghan McCain immediately compared the audience’s response to the reaction when Oprah Winfrey famously gave out free cars on her show in 2004.

To this, Behar retorted, “No, no, [it’s like], he goes to jail! He goes to jail! He goes to jail! Lock him up!”

Honestly, it’s just pure Joy. You can check out the full video above.

This post has been updated to include Ross’ correction.
