Leftist celebrities often demonstrate a proclivity for political correctness when it comes to discussing public figures.
However, while addressing the issue of former President Donald Trump’s exclusion from ballots in Colorado and Maine, co-host Joy Behar on Tuesday’s episode of The View made her feelings abundantly clear without mincing words.
Behar’s outspokenness about politics first oozed out in the early 2000s when she made controversial statements regarding the Iraq War, President George W. Bush and other Republican politicians.
Since then she has become increasingly whiny about her far-left positions on a variety of topics ranging from healthcare reform to climate change.
In recent years Behar has become one of the most prominent voices on the American left, appearing frequently as a guest or panelist on news programs such as Real Time with Bill Maher and CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.
Behar’s advocacy for liberal issues goes beyond just talking about them, she also donates money to various leftist political causes such as Planned Parenthood and March For Our Lives. She also regularly speaks out against President Donald Trump’s policies.
In a recent episode of ‘The View’ her colleague Sara Haines suggested that the recent court decision decisions to remove President Trump from state ballots could give off the impression of an “unfair election,” to which Behar responded predictably.
“I actually agree with Gov. Gavin Newsom and David Axelrod — these are Democrats, leading Democrats — that say this would really cause a division that’s almost insurmountable,” Haines said.
“So what are you saying?” Behar responded, rudely interrupting Haines.
“I don’t think the Supreme Court is going to hold this,” Haines said, trying to finish her point despite the interruption. “I think they’re going to overturn it and it won’t just be the originalists — I bet it’s a 9-0 vote.”
“So you think they should leave it to the voters?” Behar asked.
“I think they should leave it to the voters,” Haines responded.
“Oh no!” Behar lamented.
