While discussing the aftermath of Tuesday night’s confrontational and chaotic first debate between the two, Behar said on the ABC talk show that Biden should “stay away” from any further head-to-head events with Trump. 

“Joe Biden has nothing to gain from this,” she said. “It’s a fiasco, it gives Trump a platform to lie, to give dog whistles to his base, to sort of instruct them to be violent in this very sort of semi-subtle way.”

Behar added that “Biden is too much of a gentleman to be talking on the same stage with this neanderthal.” 

The "View" co-host's comments add to a wave of criticism against Trump for his repeated interruptions during the Cleveland debate, with Biden telling the president to "shut up" and stop his "yapping."

“Americans have seen enough” to make a decision, Behar said. 

“We don’t need to see any more,” she continued. “If you’re still undecided out there, you need to see a shrink.” 

Behar also responded to debate moderator Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceBiden adviser: 'He does not have any concern' about Trump lawsuits Public health expert: Americans no longer acting 'with common purpose' on pandemic Anti-Defamation League criticizes White House appointee 'who has consorted with racists' MORE telling The New York Times on Wednesday that he “never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did.” 

“Really? Are you kidding me? Where has your head been for four years, Chris?” Behar questioned. “I’m sorry, my grandson who’s 9 years old could see this was going to be a mess.” 

During Tuesday’s debate, Wallace was forced to talk over the candidates multiple times, telling Trump at one point, "I think that the country would be better served if we allowed both people to speak with fewer interruptions.”

"That was the worst debate I have ever seen, in fact it wasn't even a debate,” Tapper told viewers. “It was a disgrace."

In response to such complaints, the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Wednesday that it would be looking into implementing changes ahead of the next two debates. CBS’s Norah O’Donnell reported Wednesday afternoon that among the changes is an option for moderators to cut candidates’ microphones.
