The women of The View heard the Michael Flynn news live on air Friday morning and the #reaction in the studio was jubilant to say the least.
Host Joy Behar got the honor of revealing the bombshell that Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty about lying to the FBI about working with the Russians.
During the episode, she was handed a card from a member of the production team and read out the news with increasing excitement.
“Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team … and is prepared to testify that as a candidate Donald Trump directed him to MAKE CONTACT WITH THE RUSSIANS,” she shouted before throwing her prompt card in the air with, well, unfettered joy.
The crowd erupted with cheers and applause and chants of “lock them up” filled the studio. Behar in her excitement mimicked the Oprah refrain with, “He goes to jail, he goes to jail!”
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it’s beginning to look a lot like #collusion,” Ann Navarro added.
Conservative host and daughter of Sen. John McCain, Meghan McCain wasn’t in such a celebratory mood, but she conceded that “this is significant” and that she would give Democrats and liberals this moment. She also warned that any indictment would seriously divide the country.
What a morning.
