Sparks flew on "The View" Thursday as the co-hosts clashed over whether or not CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta should have appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast to discuss the coronavirus vaccine.
Co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin slammed Rogan, agreeing they wouldn't be making attempts to reach out to his vast audience because of his refusal to take the coronavirus vaccine, as well as some of his past remarks, while co-hosts Sherri Shepherd, Ana Navarro and Sara Haines agreed it was beneficial for listeners to hear the two discuss the topic.
Rogan suggested getting natural immunity from contracting the coronavirus was better than taking the vaccine. Rogan later claimed to Gupta it would be best to actually take the vaccine and then get sick to better your immunity.
"Yes, let’s listen to a radio talk show host instead of a scientist and a doctor," Behar said sarcastically. "Clearly Dr. Gupta did not change Joe Rogan’s mind."
"He's so arrogant," Behar said before co-host Sherri Shepherd chimed in, describing how she knew Rogan as "a very smart man" and thought it was great the two had respectful discourse on the subject.
"Sanjay said he went there to understand his thinking … I’m not so interested in understanding the Trump mind, I’m not so interested in understanding the anti-vax mind, because I’m not interested in understanding crazy. I don’t think you can make sense of crazy. I have zero interest," Hostin retorted, appearing upset.
“I’m hoping Dr. Jill becomes the Surgeon General, his wife,” she exclaimed, prompting Karl to awkwardly laugh.
“Joe Biden’s wife,” Goldberg continued. “She would never do it but, yeah, she’s a hell of a doctor. She’s an amazing doctor.”
Liberal co-host Joy Behar appeared entirely confused by Goldberg’s claim, and McCain chimed in that she believes Biden isn’t actually a medical doctor.
“I could be wrong,” Goldberg replied.

Their comments are pretty scary and show how dangerous the left can be. They won't debate because they don't even acknowledge that someone can have a difference of opinion. It is almost like you are less than so there is no point even acknowledging you. This is why the left is so comfortable with violence against dissenters.

The one thing we have to keep in mind is that there is a difference in the human form and the horse form. So horse form, no do not take. Human form, yes do take.
The fact this stuff is not more available tells you all you need to know. They are not doing it because it's likely not as profitable as other options.
I don't think I have ever had a conversation that long with anyone. Seriously -- think about that.
In fact, when I told Joe early in the podcast that I didn't agree with his apparent views on vaccines against Covid, ivermectin and many things in between, part of me thought the MMA, former Taekwondo champion might hurtle himself across the table and throttle my neck. But, instead he smiled, and off we went.
It was like Joe and I were now in the octagon, circling one another. He stared at me intently now, eyebrows raised. I admitted that the vaccinated could still carry the virus at similar loads as the unvaccinated, but swiftly added -- before he could claim victory -- that there was more to the story.
Even as he sometimes railed against masks, "The Joe Rogan Experience" masks emblazoned with his logo are available for sale on his website. I even bought one ahead of time and gave it to him as a gift. He looked surprised.
His mind was made up, and there would always be plenty of misinformation out there neatly packaged to support his convictions.
