During the discussion, Joy Behar said, "Were these people watching TV on January 6? This is a depressing, depressing time we're in."

"When people cannot make up their minds between somebody who wants to destroy democracy, wants to destroy this country, the Republican Party will get rid of your Social Security, all sorts of things," she added.

Joy Behar says Donald Trump should be put in an 'isolation booth' if he talks after his mic shuts during debate

Speaking about Donald Trump and Joe Biden's debate, Joy Behar said, "Now, this idea that there’s a sound that when Trump keeps talking, his mic is shut, that’s not enough because Joe Biden can still hear him….He’s like where you are to me."

"If you keep yammering, I can still hear you. They need to be in one of those quiz show isolation booths. But also Joe Biden should fact-check him. That’s how it works. I think he has a minute to rebut, I believe," she continued.

Arguing that many of the undecided voters do not support Trump, 'The View' co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said that the undecided voters also find Biden's policies problematic.

"You guys are like he should be so proud of student loans," said Griffin, adding, "People like me don’t think it was the government’s job to do it, or he should be so happy about what he’s doing with the border. We think he waited too long."

Biden and Trump are set to debate for 90 minutes in Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, June 27.
