Joy Behar to retire, join Virginia Democrats in Motown tribute band

Joy Behar announced her retirement from “The View” today, saying she will join the “Motown Democrats” tribute band on a North American tour that seeks to honor black American musicians.

The band reportedly includes Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring, along with Shaun King and Elizabeth Warren. The “blackface boy-band” known as “The Two Jimmys” — Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel — will join the tour at a later date.

“I know I’m not a beautiful African woman, and it was wrong of me to dress like one back in the Motown days,” said Behar. “But we’re going to ‘lean in’ to our apology to our black sisters and brothers by lip-syncing to the best music in history.”

Herring, who once dressed up as a blackface Kurtis Blow, admitted that the tribute band “sounds ridiculous” but insisted that “we see this tour as reparations to the black community, to atone for our ignorance.”

Gov. Northam, whose support for post-birth abortions has conveniently been forgotten in the blackface debate, will front the group as Michael Jackson, but Elizabeth Warren is reportedly resisting the group’s identification with Motown.

“Motown may have been the best black music in America, but it was much less multicultural than the Village People,” said Warren. “As a woman who has apologized for pretending to be American Indian, I think we should be paying tribute to disco.”

White black activist Shaun King said he wants to identify as Al Green while playing the bass like Bootsy. “I don’t care what we call ourselves, I just want to get down with my bad self,” he said.
