Joy Behar, who has defended “dog” Bill Clinton’s mistreatment of women because “he votes in my favor,” on Monday got angry at Donald Trump for being a “liar” and “sexually harassing” women. The View co-host reacted to a story in the New York Times that Trump has been inappropriate with women.
On Monday's The View on ABC, as the group discussed GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump making an issue of Hillary Clinton's treatment of women who had been assaulted or harassed by or had affairs with her husband, co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Paula Faris got into a heated debate in which Goldberg ranted in defense of Hillary Clinton, and at one pointed bizarrely seemed to blame women for trying to have affairs with Bill Clinton. Goldberg: "She didn't do anything. It was done against her. Those women had tried to have affairs with her husband, the married part of that twosome, you know?"
Hours before the announcement that actor Will Ferrell would not star in a smear film portraying Ronald Reagan as a dementia-addled invalid, the women of The View discussed the potential movie. Liberal co-host Joy Behar insisted that the concept could be making a “larger point” and also repeated a smear about the 40th president. Speaking of Ferrell, she sneered, “He might be making a larger point about the fact that the man was in office with Alzheimer's and that reflects our political system to a T.”
The hosts of ABC's The View on Thursday spent almost four minutes fretting over Dr. Ben Carson and Donald Trump suggesting Harriet Tubman be placed on the $2 bill as an alternative to replacing former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin in particular portrayed placement on the $2 bill as an insult, betraying an apparent lack of knowledge that the $2 bill that is still in circulation features no less than former President and Declaration of Independence author Thomas Jefferson's likeness.
Posted below: the April 18 edition of Notable Quotables, MRC’s bi-weekly compilation of the latest outrageous quotes in the liberal media. This issue: The “first-rate” Hillary Clinton is just like Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams, according to journalists.
Meanwhile, Chris Matthews told Bernie Sander’s campaign chairman that the socialist candidate stimulates his “erogenous zone.” Over on CNN, Chris Cuomo gushed to Bernie Sanders that “thousands of young people” are “shouting your name.”
Just moments before Hillary Clinton appeared on The View, Tuesday, the co-hosts speculated on the “bias” people have against a female president. The panelists blamed it on “talk radio” and “religion.” Joy Behar ranted, “The Catholics, there are no female priests for example. In the orthodox Jewish faith, the women stay upstairs. The men stay downstairs. So, religion certainly contributes to sexism.”
The women of The View on Monday predictably lashed out at critics of Barack Obama’s trip to Cuba, making morally equivalent arguments between the communist country and the United States. Co-host Joy Behar described the President’s deals with despotic regimes like Cuba and the United States as “reaching across the aisle.”
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday furiously denounced fellow co-host Joy Behar for suggesting that the family of Antonin Scalia might know of a conspiracy theory to kill the justice. Goldberg went ballistic at her fellow panelists on the show for speculating on such possibilities, condemning, “We don't actually know what happened! This just happened over the weekend. Let's hold off before we decide that somebody murdered him!”
Joy Behar, who has previously said she is “aroused” by the “hot” Bernie Sanders, on Friday advised the self-admitted socialist to stop calling himself a socialist. During a discussion of the Democratic primary on The View, Behar complained, “He calls himself a socialist. He’s just a liberal. He’s a liberal. He's as liberal as Obama.” (Whether that said more about Sanders or Obama, Behar didn’t explain.)
On ABC's The View on Friday, the ladies discussed the Republican debate. They actually discussed both debates, going after Carly Fiorina's Hillary wisecrack in the undercard. She said: "Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”
Co host Joy Behar made a meowing sound and said, “I wonder who she’s talking about? Who do you think she’s talking about?”
The View’s Joy Behar on Tuesday insisted that, regardless of whether Bill Clinton raped a woman or Ted Kennedy drowned someone, she would vote for these liberal politicians. Behar and her fellow co-hosts were discussing how Clinton’s past would impact his wife in 2016. She justified, “Republicans have voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Now, that to me, is more important than anything that Bill Clinton did or didn't do because it's what she's going to vote for.”
