After much discussion, the cohosts of ABC’s “The View” have determined that the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic “wasn’t in this country” — and Joy Behar even said that she’d heard somewhere that it might have come from a lab.

In a segment from Tuesday’s live broadcast — years after most Americans had determined that COVID had most likely leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China — the show’s cohosts embraced the pandemic’s foreign origins in an attempt to attack Republicans for continuing to question the roles played by American officials like Dr. Anthony Fauci.

Joy Behar began by complaining about Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who had objected to referring to Fauci as “doctor” during a Monday hearing, saying that she was disrespectful and not very smart.

“She’s really stupid, and so disrespectful,” Behar said.

Sunny Hostin went on to criticize Republicans in Congress for investigating American officials, saying that it didn’t make sense to scrutinize their roles if the pandemic had originated outside the United States.

“Fifteen months of an investigation — we have real problems in this country,” Hostin began. “Fifteen months of an investigation, spending real taxpayer dollars, it really really just gets to me. And I think that people like Marjorie Taylor Greene and other people really need to start doing the work of the people, as opposed to trying to send these messages.”


“They say that they cannot find out what happened here in the United States in terms of the origin of COVID — well, maybe because the origin wasn’t in this country. Maybe it was in another country, and maybe they need to now start looking at other countries.”

“They say it possibly came out of a lab,” Behar interjected.

Whoopi Goldberg concluded the segment by reminding everyone that “people died” during the pandemic and suggesting that Republicans were saying “people made it up.”
