The View co-hosts blasted Republicans for being those not fully vaccinated and the reason the United States is still dealing with the pandemic.
“This notion of personal freedom seems to be trumping, you know, the public health of our fellow citizens,” co-host Sunny Hostin said.
Meanwhile, co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who had announced on the show that she had received her booster shot, was out for the second day in a row due to a COVID-19 scare. Co-host Joy Behar told the audience on Wednesday that Goldberg had been exposed to someone who tested positive.
The co-hosts blamed the unvaccinated despite recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that show the omicron variant is most prevalent in those who are fully vaccinated.
“If they haven’t gotten it, they’re not going to get by what people are saying. So you keep doing what you’re doing,” co-host Sara Haines said.

Behar also touted that the U.S. is going downhill. She shared her disgust for how the country is behind “the people we fought in World War II: Germany, Italy, and Japan.”
“Imagine that — I never thought I’d live long enough, which I have, to see us behind the Axis powers in democracy. We fought to save democracy in WWII, and now they are beating us in democracy. It breaks my heart,” Behar said.
ABC News's Deborah Roberts joined the show today and acknowledged the fatigue that people are feeling regarding COVID-19.

“I think we have to have a little bit of grace. We have to mask up, and I’m boosted, too. I just got my booster a week ago. We have to recognize there’s a lot of fatigue out there,” Roberts said.
