Two presenters of the program “The View”, of the ABC network, were removed from the set during the live broadcast of the program this Friday after learning that they had tested positive for COVID-19, when they were preparing to conduct an interview with the vice president Kamala Harris.
The context: Presenters Sonny Hostin and Ana Navarro had to leave the presentation table in an untimely manner. The rest of the anchors later explained that Hostin and Navarro had tested positive.
- It was decided to do the interview with Harris remotely, from another room in the building, about 10 minutes before the end of the program.
- Joy Behar and Sara Haines spoke with Vice President Harris about border patrol, Afghanistan, and anti-abortion laws before the program ended.
What do they say? “Sonny and Ana are strong women and I know they are fine,” the vice president responded of The View hosts. “It really speaks to the fact that they are vaccinated as well. Vaccines really make a difference, because if not, we would be worried about hospitalization and worse. “
- “We did everything we could to make sure you were safe because we value you so much,” Joy Behar said after welcoming Harris.
- Harris did not interact with Hostin or Navarro prior to the show, according to a White House official. Both presenters are fully vaccinated, Behar said.
