This was really something….
No, not that I was actually watching The View (I would rather gouge my eyes out with sharp sticks and then turn the sticks on my eardrums) but I did get an alert that something big had happened.
Hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro appeared to find out live on the air that they had both tested positive for the COVID and they were immediately asked to leave the stage.
And then the kicker: they were both fully vaxxed.
Watch it happen right here:

Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro have to leave The View after the A block upon testing positive for COVID. Both indicated they are vaccinated. Meanwhile- Vice President Harris apparently is waiting backstage. Behar now taking questions from the audience. An absolute train wreck.

It all happened right before the Vice Resident was scheduled to come on the show.
Talk about awkward!

NBC News had more coverage:
Two co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” tested positive for the coronavirus in the middle of the show Friday, right before a scheduled interview with Vice President Kamala Harris.
The announcement that co-hosts Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro had tested positive came as the show was already underway. A White House official told NBC News the vice president “had no contact with hosts prior to the show.”
“I need the two of you to step off for a second,” a producer told the pair just as Harris was about to come on stage.
That two remaining co-hosts, Joy Behar and Sara Haines, began taking questions from the audience as they scrambled to fill airtime.
“Okay, so, for those of you who are just tuning in, we’re both sitting here now because Ana and Sunny at the last minute we realized that they tested positive for Covid. They’ve been taken off the show,” Behar said.
