The co-host of "The View", Joy Behar alongside her dog, Bernie Sanders, wished followers a Merry Christmas as shared in a snap. Earlier this year, Behar denied rumors of her resignation from the show. 

"The View" co-host, Joy Behar donned a festive hat and posed alongside her dog, Bernie Sanders, extending seasons' greetings from the dog's Instagram account, to their followers. 

Yes, her white pooch is named after Senator Bernie Sanders and was fitted with an adorable Santa Clause outfit with a matching hat for the photo.

Behar was dressed in a black sweatshirt, with no make-up on, while holding Sanders in her arms and flashed a wide smile as she captioned the post: 

"Bernie and I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let’s hope that 2021 will be better than 2020." 

Senator Bernie Sanders first met Behar's pet in July during an interview on the ABC show, upon which he delighted that he looked like a "very smart dog" after the introduction.

In early December, Behar touched on the sensitive subject of white privilege, following the scandal around Lori Loughlin. Her parents, Olivia Jade and Mossimo Gianulli confessed to paying $500 000 to get their daughters recruited into USC. 

 The former school teacher joined the show when it first launched in 1997 and has served as the longest-running member of the panel.

Loughlin cited white privilege as the reason behind her family's antics in a "Red Table Talk" interview, which Behar believed to be true, saying schools failed to educate white learners on black history, Jim Crow, and slavery.

Back in April, Behar rubbished reports by "Variety" Magazine that she would be retiring from "The View" in 2022. The comedian joked that she needed to stay on television to help provide the right-wing media with content, adding: 

“The rumors of my retirement have been greatly exaggerated.”

Behar explained that her contract will run until 2022, but that she was free to leave at any time before that if she so chooses. She mentioned that time ticks on by and that she is not getting any younger.

However, in 2013 she was relieved of her duties, with executive producers seeking to make the program less political. They suffered from a drop in ratings, and Behar was reinstated within two years of being fired.

Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Meghan McCain shared nice sentiments in the light of the earlier rumor of Behar's departure from the show, with Goldberg equating it to a music band going their separate ways.

McCain, who is Behar's sparring partner, revealed she needed Behar's motherly advice to guide her along with her own pregnancy at the time.
