On Friday’s episode of The View, co-host Joy Behar called all Republicans “racist” because they support President Donald Trump. Seconds later, she was smacked with a brutal reality check that you don’t want to miss.
Friday’s discussion on The View revolved around Rob Porter resigning from the White House, which Joy Behar appeared to find humorous. Meghan McCain, on the other hand, did not see it as a laughing matter at all.
Porter was accused of physically abusing both of his ex-wives after they shared their stories — and black-eye photos — with the media. He is currently dating White House Communications Director Hope Hicks and has adamantly denied the allegations against him.
Behar wondered why White House chief of staff John Kelly was shocked about the domestic abuse report surrounding Porter. “Why is Kelly so shocked? Shocked? I tell you all of a sudden,” Behar said with a giggle.
“We are talking about the abuse of a woman,” McCain shot back. “I mean look at that photo. We should not be laughing.”
Behar cut McCain off, saying, “We are talking about Kelly, we are not talking about abuse right now. Don’t say something like that.”
McCain shot back, saying, “It’s very serious, and as a Republican, I am offended.”
“As a Democrat, I’m offended by Republicans,” Behar retorted.
“I don’t think we should be political,” said a level-headed McCain. “I don’t think this should be about Democrats and Republicans. Obviously, if I had been working in any administration or any job anywhere and I was dating a man that people knew had had a long record of serious abuse of women, obviously I would want to know,” she continued.
“She’s in a really tough position,” added McCain, in reference to White House Communications Director Hope Hicks. “The president is angry with her. About how all this was handled because she was allegedly part of the statement, the nice statement they put out about him. This is a mess.”
“You’re offended by Republicans. So all Republicans, probably, and everywhere. Offended by me sitting here, because I’m a Republican,” said McCain.
Then, just to meet her daily race-baiting quota, Behar said, “I’m offended by a party that backs a racist.”
“Oh my God,” McCain said before Behar kept going.
“Oh, come on, Meghan. 72 percent of the Republican Party thinks he’s a good role model,” responded Behar.
Then, McCain took the gloves off, serving up a brutal reality check for her liberal co-host. She noted that this is not the first time Democrats have resorted to race-baiting to demonize a prominent Republican they do not like.
“I’m actually going on a Van Jones show on Saturday. And I was actually looking forward to talking about this in a way that is respectful. And not being told that just because I’m a Republican I’m offending you,” said McCain. “We are not going to move the needle one way or another just throwing out platitudes and hubris like that. And I would like to have a real conversation about it,” she continued.
“I don’t know why you’re sitting here saying you’re offended by all Republicans. I’m trying to give you my perspective. Did you know that my father was accused of being racist and [Mitt] Romney was accused of being racist and Jeb Bush was accused?” she asked.
According to IJR, the only defense Behar could offer in response is that all three of the people Meghan McCain named, who are still members of the GOP, are “not part of today’s Republican Party.”
This just goes to show that liberal elites like Joy Behar will literally stop at nothing to attack President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. They will literally laugh at the abuse of a battered woman if it means that, in the same breath, they can attack the GOP. What model feminists they are.
Quite frankly, the “ladies” — I use that term loosely — on The View should avoid talking politics altogether. They simply aren’t knowledgeable enough to have a mature debate without resorting to bogus accusations of racism. They should stick to discussing pop culture. Truthfully, the Kardashians are more in their wheelhouse than the Trumps. What happened on Friday serves as proof.
