Joy Behar is an idiot. While the panelists on The View were discussing the protests in Iran, Behar expressed outrage that Trump is talking about it. Of course, she would express outrage if he wasn’t talking about it, too.
She also stupidly implied that gay people could be killed on American streets, just like in Iran.
The Washington Free Beacon has the details:
Behar Suggests U.S. on Verge of Killing Gay People in the Streets
“The View” host Joy Behar suggested Tuesday that the U.S. is on the verge of stoning gay people in the streets during a conversation on Iran that went off the rails, saying “not yet” when a co-host said it was silly to compare America to Iran.
President Donald Trump has weighed in on support of the protesters in Iran, who are angry at the Islamic Republic’s regime over high prices and economic mismanagement. Trump has also tweeted criticisms of the regime’s support for terrorism.
Behar objected to this, saying he should stay out of it and keep playing golf…
Behar drew a comparison between the Iranians rising up against the regime and Americans rising up against Trump. Co-host Meghan McCain blasted the comments, saying such moral relativism was a conversation-ender.
“It’s not apples and apples. It’s not equal,” Behar said. “But we’re on a very slippery slope in this country toward throwing democracy out the window every single day.”
“We have to defend the freedom of the press and civil rights here,” Navarro said.
“We do, but you’re not being stoned in the street for being gay!” McCain said.
“Not yet,” Behar said. “Not yet.”
