Unhinged Behar Hijacks Segment to Rant About ‘Thug’ Trump: 'Shameful!'

Is there no conversation Joy Behar won’t hijack to turn it into a rant about Donald Trump? The liberal View co-host on Thursday co-opted  a conversation with actor Tyler Perry from Black History Month to ranting about the “thug” Trump. She started shouting, “It’s Shameful! It’s shameful.” 

With a picture in the background of Barack Obama and Perry in his L.A. home, the celebrity explained, “But we're standing there in front of those chairs. They were once owned by Abraham Lincoln.” He added, “So we both had an opportunity to sit in those chairs and have a conversation, a sitting president, a president in the past who freed the slaves, two African-American men sitting in the chairs having a conversation.” 

At this point, Behar swooped in with a rant: When I saw this picture and I knew the story, I said, you know, 'We had Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama and now we have a thug in the White House!' It's shameful! It's shameful!” 

 

 

Behar’s co-hosts seemed shocked and quickly wanted to move on: 

ABBY HUNTSMAN: Can we talk about your new movie? 

PERRY: Please. Please. Please. Please. 

But Behar is the person who used George H.W. Bush’s death as an excuse to rant: “This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did!”     

In November of 2018, she slammed the Country Music Awards for not attacking the President: “Emergency!... Everybody should be speaking up!”

JOY BEHAR: Tyler, it's Black History Month and I understand that you had president Barack Obama at your house. 

TYLER PERRY: Yeah, yeah.

BEHAR: And that -- you read a lot. 

PERRY: Yeah, I read a lot. 

BEHAR: You can see that. 

PERRY: Yeah. 

BEHAR: I understand that this picture has special significance. Tell us what this is about. 

PERRY: This is in 2012. He was a sitting president. He came to my house in L.A. This was the day that the shooting happened in South Carolina. But we're standing there in front of those chairs. They were once owned by Abraham Lincoln. So we both had an opportunity to sit in those chairs and have a conversation, a sitting president, a president in the past who freed the slaves, two African-American men sitting in the chairs having a conversation. 

BEJAR: Amazing, that is something. 

PERRY: Wonderful moment. 

BEHAR: When I saw this picture and I knew the story, I said, you know, “We had Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama and now we have a thug in the White House! It's shameful! It's shameful. That's all I have to say. 

ABBY HUNTSMAN: Can we talk about your new movie? 

PERRY: Please. Please. Please. Please.
