Joy Behar, co-host of “The View,” has been known to say some pretty ridiculous things, but this might take the cake.
The largely liberal discussion panel was talking about one of their favorite topics, impeaching President Trump, when Behar compared President Richard Nixon to Trump, according to the Media Research Center.
“You know what I was thinking? Nixon would be — he would say ‘I was in the wrong period of history’ because he would have gotten away with everything just like this corrupt president is getting away with,” Behar claimed.
She then said: “This is an unbelievable corrupt president, corrupt administration, and the Republican party is right behind him and they all should be thrown into jail as far as I'm concerned.”
The audience erupted in cheers.
“Look ‘em up!” Behar shouted.
She didn’t specify if she was referring to the Republican establishment, which has not been very supportive of Trump, or all Republican voters. Republican co-host Meghan McCain called her out on it, to which Behar claimed she was simply using “hyperbole.”
But the hate for Republicans continued as co-host Whoopi Goldberg tried to incite fear that the GOP would push for racial segregation after fighting Roe v. Wade.
“My question remains, you know, are they [Trump supporters] rallying around him because they like this idea that the law is no longer the law?” Goldberg asked. “That worries me.”
“The idea that some of the things that have been coming out of the woodwork are problematic, you know,” she continued. “Voting rights and whether Brown v. Board of Education is something that is going to be in question!”
Yet it’s liberal college campuses that are increasingly encouraging segregation, according to Forbes. Administrators are giving black students the option to segregate themselves from white students and non-black minorities with separate dorm rooms, activities, gyms, and even graduation.
Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz, who is running for president as a Democrat for the sole purpose of debating Democrat candidates on national television, recently did man-on-the-street interviews with students at Columbia University to get their take on the segregation trend.
Many liberal students — white, black, and other minorities — were fine with it. In fact, they thought it was healthy. But when he interviewed black people several blocks outside the campus, they thought it was a terrible idea.
“Why?” asked one shocked woman. “You going back in time? Why are you separating? We’re all together.”
“Discrimination might not be the ultimate goal, but people take it that way,” said a black man. “It’s all about social skills, and if you can’t converse with people who are not of the same skin color as you, then there’s no reason for you to be social at all.”
