The hosts of ABC’s “The View” freaked out during Tuesday’s broadcast, panning The New Yorker’s latest cover art over its apparent insinuation that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was “too old” for elected office.

Cohost Joy Behar started the conversation about the cover, which was meant to show politicians too old for public office and included — alongside Pelosi — President Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).


Whoopi Goldberg referenced the Axios report published early Tuesday — which said Biden’s team was pulling out all the stops to remove trip-hazards from his path and keep him from falling and getting hurt — and then pivoted to the magazine’s cover art.

“I hate that cover. Why do they have to put Nancy Pelosi in there?” Behar asked. “Nancy Pelosi, if you watch any of her interviews, she’s as sharp as a tack, as they say. She makes sense, she keeps getting re-elected by 80% of the constituency.”

Goldberg suggested that it didn’t matter whether or not Biden fell down, adding, “Joe Biden can fall down 55 times, that’s not going to make me think he can’t do the job.”


Cohost Sunny Hostin once again complained that Americans didn’t revere their elders the way other cultures did, and argued that Pelosi’s experience made her more valuable.


Behar jumped back in then, pivoting to Trump and arguing that Biden’s age was of no consequence — the only thing that mattered was preventing Trump from winning a second term in office.

“Let’s say Joe Biden, God forbid, dies in office,” she said. “Isn’t that still okay for the country? The country will survive it, but if Trump wins, the country will not survive it. That’s a fact.”
