Joy Behar jabs Daytime Emmys after Rachel Maddow praises “The View ”on the air: 'Where is the Emmy?'

"It's rigged," Maddow joked, invoking Donald Trump.

Joy Behar and Rachel Maddow invoked Donald Trump's reaction to the 2020 presidential election when the former jabbed the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences over The View's performance at the 2024 Daytime Emmys.

Maddow joined the show Tuesday morning to discuss the current state of American politics, but before she got there, the MSNBC host took a little time to enjoy The View's current run as she praised the cohosts' work.

"I like talking with you guys. I feel like your conversations are getting smarter and smarter and smarter. I always learn something, and I love the way you guys talk to each other and how decent you are to each other. The View is better than it has ever been," Maddow told the panelists as she took her seat at the Hot Topics table.

"So, where is the Emmy?" Behar asked, referencing the show's loss at the June 7 ceremony in major categories, including Outstanding Daytime Talk Series (which went to The Kelly Clarkson Show) and Outstanding Daytime Talk Series Host (Live's Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos took the honor).

"Yeah, well, that's a whole other thing," cohost Sunny Hostin said, as Maddow referenced Trump by turning to Behar and exclaiming, "It's rigged!"

Behar smiled and echoed Maddow's sentiment, telling the audience, "It's rigged!" while Hostin also said "rigged" from her seat.

Before the interview began, Behar joked: "I'm just gonna say that, every time I lose something, I'm going to say it's rigged. Why not. [Trump] says it."

"Say it in advance, so that when you lose it, people know it's not your fault," Maddow said, inadvertently teeing moderator Whoopi Goldberg up for another joke that segued the group into the actual interview: "Yeah, but you can't say it about your virginity," she said, and the audience laughed.

Though The View didn't win big at the 2024 Daytime Emmys, it has triumphed with the Daytime Emmys in the past, as Goldberg, Behar, Sherri Shepherd, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, and the late Barbara Walters won for hosting the program in 2009.

The View airs weekdays at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.

Correction: A previous version of this story indicated that Behar jabbed the TV Academy, which bestows the Primetime Emmys. It has been updated to reflect that the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences is the body that hands out the Daytime Emmys.
