  • Joy Behar: Benghazi Mom’s RNC Speech ‘Completely Inappropriate’

    07/20/2016 4:03:09 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 108 replies ^ | July 20, 2016 | Katie Yoder
    A mother speaking out about her son’s death is “inappropriate” for the RNC, according to The View’s Joy Behar. But will she say the same about the DNC’s speakers? On Tuesday, The View ladies discussed the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. At one point, co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked the panel about an RNC speech delivered by Patricia Smith, “a mom who lost her son in Benghazi [and] still blames Hillary for her son's death.” Fox News analyst Jedediah Bila began by defending Smith: I think she feels that Hillary Clinton – you know, and she said this, wrote...

    Far-left host Keith Olbermann appeared on The View, Friday, to warn that while the threat of a nuclear ISIS is “theoretical,” the danger of Donald Trump becoming President is a “distinct” possibility. Olbermann wondered aloud, “Somebody said the other day...’What would happen if ISIS got nukes?.... So, I said, ‘What would happen if Donald Trump got nukes?’" Joy Behar mused, “Who would use it first?” Olbermann explained his comparison: “But also, which is the more realistic concern for us at the moment? I mean, the second one is a distinct, visible possibility and the first one is theoretical, but very...

    The ladies of The View discussed the terrorist attacks in Brussels during Tuesday morning’s episode, with co-hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin commending Donald Trump’s response to the attack and fellow host Raven-Symoné warning Americans to be mindful of speech that could “fuel the fire” of international terrorism. “I’ve been saying this for a while — it’s not official for the government to obviously say — but we’re in a kind of a World War situation,” Symoné said at the start of Tuesday’s episode. “It’s everywhere. And we need to definitely see what’s going on and what’s coming out of...

    It turns out the "war on women" exists after all, and it's being carried out by women like Joy Behar and other pagan progressives like her. This week Behar's TV show, The View, provided proof that a male creep/perp need not be anywhere in the room for real life victims of sexual assault to be thrown under the bus. Sure, Bill Clinton is "a dog," admitted Behar, while being confronted with his past infidelity and its impact on Hillary Clinton's presidential hopes. But hey, according to Behar taxpayer-funded birth control and satisfying the blood lust to kill innocent babies (millions...

    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. 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 [Hillary's] going to vote for." This came after co-host Paula Faris reminded, "Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey. They say that he [Clinton] either exposed himself to them, raped them...

    Donald Trump wasn’t too popular on The View a couple months back. Trump had disparaged Republican rival Carly Fiorina’s appearance, and Joy Behar called him out, asking, “Why don’t you talk about her brain, instead of her face?” Behar made clear that attacking someone’s looks is just unacceptable. Well, except when she does it; then it’s totally fine. Following a televised debate, Behar said Fiorina’s face resembled “a Halloween mask,” while co-hosts Michelle Collins and Whoopi Goldberg joked that she seemed “demented.” Of course, they didn’t just insult the former CEO. When she came on the show, they also took...

    Conservative political pundit Ann Coulter spiced up Friday’s episode of “The View,” holding court on immigration, Donald Trump — and Raven-Symone‘s apparent hypocrisy. Coulter took Raven-Symone to task after the “View” co-host attempted to grill Coulter on her abrasive rhetoric. Noting that her mother had taught her as a child that, if you don’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all, Raven-Symone asked, “Why do you think it’s important to mudsling?” Coulter didn’t miss a beat, bringing up Raven-Symone‘s controversial statement on a recent “View” episode, when she said that she would discriminate against people with...

Hasselbeck, who has since moved on to a cozy job with Fox News Channel, was known for her conservative opinions, which often resulted in heated debates between her and the show’s other hosts. Wallace, who has been labeled a conservative, peculiarly finds herself in the favorable opinion of Behar: "I like that little Republican over there.

    The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza has posted footage from comedian Joy Behar's awkward and uncomfortable roasting of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie last week. In a lengthy piece on Christie published Monday morning, Lizza included details of the recent roast of former New Jersey Gov. Brendan Byrne. Behar, Lizza reported, focused much of her time on stage lampooning Christie. Her quips seemed to get under Christie's skin, and, at one point, he got up from his chair and even motioned as though he might take her cue cards. Behar's first joke in the clip combined digs at both Christie's weight...

Of course, you can always count on the usual suspects (in this case, Joy Behar and her Weird Sisters of The View) to leap to a grossly overstated moral equivalence: “A lot of people watching are too young to remember Kent State in this country, where the police shot a couple of students,” observed Behar. “It’s outrageous, this type of behavior cannot be tolerated by the police!” Right.

    WHY THIS MATTERS POLITICALLY. There are two games Governor Palin is fighting: one is the battle to take control of her political narrative, the other is taking control of her PERSONAL narrative--and this includes everything surrounding her FAMILY. Having Bristol go on The View is BRILLIANT, and does more for raising Governor Palin's political profile and stature than one may think! With Bristol giving the whole scoop about the details surrounding her pregnancy, she takes the narrative of the "dirty details" and "dirty secrets" away from the mouths of Levi Johnston and rumor-makers in the press, who would try to...

Co-host Joy Behar belittled Osteen about his conservative Christian beliefs on the matter.

She referenced a previous quote made by Osteen on the show about homosexuality not being "God's best" for a person's life.

    Forgive the indulgence, but my wife sent me the following email today. She had to get this off her chest, in writing, to clear her mind for painting. And I think it’s a great story: One woman’s decades-long journey from indoctrinated liberal to free-thinking conservative. These are the kind of women that Joy Behar insulted when she called Nevada Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle “a bitch” who should “go to hell.” Enjoy the tale of how the left pushed away a woman who was trained almost from birth to be a liberal. In the spirit of this 2010 election...
  • Democratic Strategist: Behar Right to Call Out Angle's 'Xenophobia'

    Democratic strategist Robert Zimmerman defended View host Joy Behar on Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360: "I'm standing with Joy Behar because she nailed it when she went after Sharron Angle for the xenophobia, for the racist type of campaign she has run, and for, in fact, exploiting prejudice and bigotry" [audio available here]. Zimmerman, a one-time political analyst for CNN and a member of the Democratic National Committee since 2000, appeared on a panel with Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway, Huffington Post founding editor Roy Sekoff, and author Michael Maslansky. Midway through the segment, co-host Eliot Spitzer played a radio ad from...
  • Joy Behar, take three: I shouldn’t have called Sharron Angle a bitch because, hey, I like bitches

    Via Mediaite. One of these days we’re going to stop doing Behar/Angle “bitch” posts. But that day is not today, my friends.I wonder what Joy’s motivation was here. Did Barbara decide to have a word with her after watching the train derail two days in a row? Did the heat from women’s groups about her favorite term of endearment finally convince her to back down? Or did she wise up and realize that, at the rate she’s going, she’s going to help Angle bank another half million in donations before the weekend’s out? Not that it much matters at this...

    Whenever the GOP wins an election, the Democrats and the media always go through predictable stages of recrimination, self-pity and bizarre rationalization. The most amusing of them is when liberals question why they’re so, well, just so darned nice. “If we were to take the gloves off – to fight dirty, like our opponents, we’d win,” liberals tell themselves. Why must we be the Nancy Kerrigan to the Republicans’ Tonya Harding? This, of course, is nonsense. Democrats are original bearers of guns to knife fights. They are the true believers, and their ends justify their means. To liberals, conservatives aren’t...

    If you’re a left-of-center media personality and you use your national TV platform to call a candidate for the United States Senate a “bitch,” how might you be rewarded? Apparently in this day and age, you’re granted an interview with a former sitting president of your political party. Even though he wasn’t one of the most distinguished presidents of the United States, former President Jimmy Carter appeared on Joy Behar’s HLN program to promote his book, “White House Diary.” During his interview, Behar asked Carter to offer his assessment of Barack Obama’s performance as president. ...more (w/video)...

    Republican Sharron Angle has surged to a four point lead in the Nevada Senate race, leading Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) 49 percent to 45 percent, according to new polling. The CNN/Time poll, released Wednesday, is particularly striking because it is the first public, live caller poll conducted in the Senate race in about two weeks. In previous polls, Reid and Angle had been in a statistical dead heat.

    The Corner ^ | 10/27/2010 | Katrina Trinko
    Yesterday, The View’s Joy Behar said “She’s [Sharron Angle] going to hell, this bitch!” Behar also compared Angle’s latest ad to a “Hitler Youth” commercial. So today, Angle sent Behar flowers, with a note thanking Behar for helping her raise $150,000 online yesterday. So what was Behar’s gracious response? “I’d like to point out that those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants,” she tartly said. “And they’re not voting for you, bitch.” (One would hope they’re not voting at all, actually.) And when Barbara Walters told Behar she shouldn’t be saying that anyone was going to be in Hell, Behar...
