Joy Behar said Friday that Democrats need to abandon any notion of bipartisanship on gun laws and “seize the day” while they control the White House and both chambers of Congress.

The co-host of ABC’s “The View” made the comments one day after President Biden incensed gun rights advocates by saying “no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.”

“If you ask me, Democrats have to seize the day,” the comedian said on the show. “You know they will never possibly have control of the House, the Senate and the White House again. So I say push through whatever is needed and hope Congress comes to their senses.”

Ms. Behar‘s fellow liberal activists have cheered Mr. Biden’s vow to end an “epidemic” of violent crime through executive orders and, ultimately, legislation passed by a Democratic-led Congress.

“When [Biden] says it’s an international embarrassment — I watch a lot of foreign TV — and they will have a joke in the show like somebody got shot and then the cop will say, ‘What are we in the United States?’” Ms. Behar said. “We are an international embarrassment, just like he says.”
