The ladies of “The View” found themselves in tears and with chills Thursday morning after former Vice President Joe Biden entered the 2020 presidential election race.

There were across-the-board plaudits for Mr. Biden‘s announcement video, which used the 2017 race protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, to cast President Trump as an existential threat to the nation.

“I had tears in my eyes,” co-host Sunny Hostin said. “It choked me up literally and I felt his message. When he said we at this moment in time are in a battle for the soul of our nation I felt those words in my soul. That’s what I see. I see that there’s so much hate and division and I believe that it comes from the top.”

“I’m so touched, I’m so moved by that video,” added Joy Behar. “We were the good guys in this country [during World War II] and now we’re not. People look at this country in horror and say, ‘what happened to America?’ … America, look at this and say do we want this America back or don’t we?”

Abby Huntsman concurred.

“It gave me chills throughout my entire body,” she said.

Mr. Biden will sit down with “The View” on Friday for his first exclusive interview.

“It’s no secret of my love and friendship with Joe — and I can’t wait to talk to him tomorrow,” Meghan McCain tweeted.
