The live studio audience at 'The View' exploded with loud cheers when host Joy Behar read the breaking news about Michael Flynn pleading guilty to charges of lying to FBI agents on Friday.

A video clip from the ABC talk show shows the 75-year-old Behar being handed a small card live on-air from a production team member with the memo about Flynn that she anxiously read aloud. 

'ABC's Brian Ross is reporting, Michael Flynn promised full cooperation to the Mueller team, and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald directed him to make contact with the Russians. Yes!', she excitedly read. 

The comedian and actress then tossed the memo card into the air and began clapping while smiling wide with nothing but pure joy - perfectly enacting the definition of her first name.
