“The View”'s Joy Behar got so excited by Donald Trump conviction that she 'started leaking a little bit'

All six "View" cohosts sat at the Hot Topics table to slam convicted criminal Trump: "I feared for the safety of the judge," Alyssa Farah Griffin said.

It was a full on View-mergency in the aftermath of Donald Trump's conviction on 34 felony counts, as all six cohosts — yes, including Whoopi Goldberg coming in on her day off — joined the Hot Topics table to break down the historic moment.

A Manhattan jury found Trump guilty Thursday on all counts at the end of a long trial revolving around a scheme to fraudulently impact the 2016 election with hush-money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels after the pair engaged in a sexual relationship. Naturally, Joy Behar celebrated the occasion by revealing that she got "so excited" by Thursday's news that she "started leaking a little bit" while she shopped at a local store. The stunning reveal came as a follow-up to another groundbreaking revelation amid Friday's all-hands View Situation Room, which kicked off with Goldberg breaking her personal vow to never say Trump's full name on the show.

"Do not adjust your TV set. Yes, I'm here on a Friday because this is a very unique moment in history. That's why we're all at the table," the Oscar-winning actress said. "I'm going to say something you've never ever heard me say before: Donald John Trump is a convicted felon."

Panelist Alyssa Farah Griffin — a former Trump staffer who resigned in 2020 and subsequently spoke out against him — remained dead serious about the matter, even offering a sobering prediction regarding the safety of those involved in the trial.

"It was the outcome I expected, yet I was still somehow shocked," Griffin said. "My first thought honesty was, I feared for the safety of the judge and the jury, and I hope they have security. We live in a moment of political violent rhetoric that I think is dangerous."

She also slammed Trump for thinking that "he's untouchable and will get away with everything," and that, since she knew him personally during her time in the White House between 2019 and 2020, estimated that he didn't expect to actually be convicted. "There's a world in which he gets away with this if he becomes president," she continued, warning of potential "rage and retribution" ahead.

Later in the show, legal expert Sunny Hostin — who previously revealed that she sat in on a few courtroom sessions during the trial — noted that she spoke with a source at the Manhattan D.A.'s office, who told her that, during Trump's July 11 sentencing, "he believes that they will recommend a one-year term in prison, and that's because when you spend a year in prison in New York or under, you serve in Rikers Island."

She continued: "The other reason they will do this is because he's shown an utter disregard for our institutions. Prosecutors, when your'e recommending a sentence, you're not just recommending a sentence so they can be rehabilitated or punished, you're sending a message to the community that this is not going to happen again, this is not okay."

Goldberg, who suggested on the May 7 broadcast of The View that Trump be jailed at Guantanamo Bay, stressed that she wants Trump to be sentenced to six months in prison.

"They love him because he has no consequences. He's a man, talking about how manly he is. I feel like, if we're going to treat this man, who used to be president, like everybody else, you're convicted of felonies, you've got to do a little bit of time and say to the judge, 'I did this, I'm sorry,'" she observed. "This is what [everyone else] would have to do if you were tried. Show remorse."

The cohosts' criticisms come weeks after Robert De Niro, who narrated an anti-Trump ad for the Joe Biden campaign, went on a profanity-laden rant about Trump during a broadcast of the talk show earlier in May.

"It's almost like he wants to do the worst that he could possibly do to show this country..." De Niro said before the show censored the words that followed. The Raging Bull star's audio then returned, with De Niro clearly stating (in the video above) that "his slogan should be" before his audio cut another time, with the 80-year-old following it up with "f--- America" and "I want to f--- America." A representative for the star later confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that De Niro was censored as "he said 'f---’ a few times" on the telecast.

Other celebrities who celebrated Trump's conviction included former View cohost and longtime Trump foe Rosie O'Donnell and comedian Kathy Griffin, who faced intense backlash after she posed in May 2017 for a photo in which she held a styrofoam figure covered in ketchup that resembled the decapitated head of Trump.
