‘The View’ Removes 2 Hosts On-Air For Testing Positive For Covid As Kamala Harris Waited To Appear

Two hosts of “The View,” Sunny Hostin and Ana Navaro, were taken off stage after they tested positive for breakthrough cases of the coronavirus while on-air, moments before Vice President Harris was set to appear on the show.

Key Facts

Hostin and Navaro were asked to “step off” by a producer in the middle of a segment, before the show cut to an unexpected commercial break.

Though Harris was in the building, a producer announced that the interview would be done remotely “just to be safe.”

During her interview with Joy Behar and Sara Haines, Harris said the incident speaks to the “importance of vaccines,” which make “all the difference.”

Key Background

Host Joy Behar said that Hostin and Navarro are vaccinated “up the wazoo.” On the ABC talk show, Harris urged viewers get vaccinated. She also mirrored President Biden’s comments made Friday morning about the mistreatment of Haitian migrants at the border, saying she was “outraged” and said the actions evoked horrible moments from our country’s treatment of indigenous people. Harris said the U.S. “needs to do more” to help Haiti to recover from the assassination of their president and the devastating earthquake that hit the country last month.
