President Obama has received harsh criticism from both sides for refusing to meet with any world leaders during the United Nations General Assembly in New York City this week. He did, however, agree to appear on "The View" for a sit-down interview.

But at least one person is on Obama's side. Joy Behar, an outspoken liberal and co-host of "The View," stood up for the president via Twitter on Tuesday.

"Obama is being bashed for doing the View instead of meeting world leaders. Maybe he'd rather talk to me than Netanyahu. Ever think of that?"

Included in another tweet was a photo of Obama's appearance on "The View," referred to as a "lovefest" by Behar.

President Obama, for the first time of his presidency, chose not to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while he was in the United States.

Multiple media reports have asserted that Obama rejected his meeting request, however, the Obama White House has rejected that claim.
