On Friday, President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI regarding his communications with Russia, and has now agreed to fully cooperate with investigators. For many Americans, this turn of events represents a much-needed ray of hope — a feeling epitomized by Joy Behar's reaction when she first received and read the news on ABC's The View.
Live on the show, Behar read a card with the breaking news:
With increasing excitement — not unlike how Grandpa Joe read the instructions on the "Golden Ticket" to Charlie Bucket in Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory — she read:
ABC News, Brian Ross is reporting. 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 then exclaimed "YES!" and flung the card in the air in a show of Joy-ous celebration.
