After Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina’s SuperPAC released an ad responding to Donald Trump criticizing her looks, View co-host Joy Behar attacked Fiorina for daring to invoke “women’s suffrage” given that she is pro-life and opposes ObamaCare. The liberal ABC host lectured Fiorina on women’s issues and proclaimed she should “be ashamed of herself. It’s not your face honey, it’s your policy.”
Liberal View co-host Joy Behar admitted she was attracted to some of Donald Trump’s policy prescriptions. Talking to the presidential candidate on Thursday, Behar gushed, “A lot of people, Donald, think that you're still a Democrat and I'm very interested in that part of you, because a lot of what you say I think is correct.” The left-wing host praised, “You want to tax hedge funders.” She added, “I think you have a heart.” Behar wondered, “Are you a Democrat, really, at heart?”
Liberal comedian Joy Behar will return this fall to ABC's The View, ABCNews.com is reporting. She'll be joined by newcomers Candace Cameron Bure -- best known for her role as D.J. Tanner on the 1990s sitcom Full House, and Paula Faris, a journalist.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe spent considerable time discussing controversial comments made by Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) regarding vaccine mandates in America. During the 8:00 a.m. hour, Morning Joe hosted liberal comedian Joy Behar to discuss the vaccine controversy and the former View co-host eagerly attached vaccine skepticism to the entire Republican Party. Speaking to co-host Mika Brzezinski, Behar attacked the conservative movement as having “neanderthal thinking on the right that is really, it’s scary and dangerous. Climate change deniers, vaccination deniers, I mean they are going to kill us.”
On Tuesday, Joy Behar, former co-host on ABC’s The View, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to discuss a variety of political issues as the 2016 presidential field takes shape and decided to take a cheap shot at Mike Huckabee for his comments directed at pop singer Beyonce. Speaking to co-host Mika Brzezinski, Behar proclaimed “the overriding thing about this conversation with Huckabee is, you know, there's a certain mental midgetness to it that.”
Kellaynne Conway and Joy Behar faced off on Wednesday's CNN Tonight over the future of ABC's The View, particularly in light of Rosie O'Donnell rejoining the cast. Host Don Lemon wondered, "Will the panel reflect American politics?" When Conway asserted that the program didn't need to be political, Behar sarcastically asked if the conservative pollster wanted the job. Conway replied, "No, no, no. I think they're not really looking for a real conservative."
The former View host later underlined that "a lot of the research showed that women did get their news from us." Conway then expressed her concern about this, which led to Lemon and Behar both making the same point about the long-running ABC program: [MP3 audio available here; video below the jump]
Joy Behar, the grating liberal feminist comedian, left ABC’s “The View,” but she’s still being obnoxious. At an April 1 roast celebrating the 90th birthday of former New Jersey Gov. Brendan Byrne, a Democrat, Behar went straight to Bridgegate: “When I first learned he was blamed for blocking three lanes on the bridge, I said ‘What the hell is he doing, standing in the middle of the bridge?”
In a subheadline, Time magazine blamed Christie for failing to enjoy it: “The New Jersey governor appeared to have a sense of humor failure as the former host of The View joked about his ongoing bridge scandal.” As you might expect, Christie shot back (video below):
During an interview on Sunday's edition of the new Fox News Channel program Media Buzz, Barbara Walters told host Howard Kurtz that The View -- the weekday program she created for ABC on August 11, 1997, and is retiring from next summer -- is neither political nor news-oriented since it was intended to be “entertaining and upbeat.”
“The View is not Meet the Press,” Walters said even though she admitted that “a lot of people do get their news” from the show, which features a discussion among five female co-hosts on a wide variety of topics. However, she noted that there was no panel on what Kurtz called “the national melodrama over the federal shutdown” because, the 84-year-old newscaster said, “I didn't think that was entertaining or upbeat.”
Joy Behar used her final appearance as co-host of ABC’s The View Friday to actually drop an F-bomb.
Such was directed at the late ABC News anchor Harry Reasoner and for the benefit of co-host Barbara Walters (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Joy Behar told MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Tuesday, “You sure look gay in those pants.”
Such happened on ABC’s The View when Scarborough showed up wearing pink pants (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Former New York Times columnist Frank Rich showed up on Joy Behar’s Current TV program Say Anything! on Wednesday to chat about some hot news topics – chief among them, the ongoing Anthony Weiner saga. Rich assured Behar that the Weiner situation would not affect Hillary Clinton’s future. On the contrary, he said, it would make people love her husband Bill Clinton even more.
Rich made his remarks after Behar mentioned that the Clintons seem to be distancing themselves from Weiner and his wife, Huma Abedin. Rich remarked, “[L]ook, Weiner had a lot of enemies in the Democratic Party well before the scandals, but I also think it’s not going to have any effect on Hillary Clinton's future, whatever it is.”
Following her announcement that she will be departing the cast of ‘The View’, co-host Joy Behar has taken it upon herself to reach into the depths of absurdity in her final few months on the daytime talk show. On March 11, the five co-hosts were discussing Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s recent book Lean In, and the role women have in the workplace.
Following Whoopi Goldberg quoting Sandberg’s book, where she states that, “working women are not assertive enough. And this quote, they don't have leadership, there's a leadership ambition gap”, Behar claims that, “When Hillary Clinton becomes president, the glass ceiling will be broken.” [See video after jump.
