Joy Behar got into a horrid confrontation with “an entitled b*tch” on The View, screaming, “I’m quitting this damn show!” In fact, the 75-year-old Behar shouted her ultimatums. If they are not met, she won’t return to the ABC show. The live audience heard the entire cat-fight, and we have all the details everyone is dying to know. You’ll love this.
It all started on Monday morning’s episode of The View. Joy Behar used what was supposed to be a tribute to President George H.W. Bush as an opportunity to trash President Donald Trump. Breitbart reports, “After [Behar] praised the late president for signing the Clean Air Act as president, Behar turned that praise into a club against Trump and a soapbox for her own left-wing politics.”
“This president that we have now is trying to unravel everything that he did and Obama did, and if I ever become a one-issue voter it will be about pollution and the greenhouse eff–,” Joy ranted before being cut off as Meghan McCain jumped in.
And, McCain went bonkers — not so much over the trashing of Trump, though. The 34-year-old Senator’s daughter is perfectly fine with Trump-bashing. McCain yelled at Behar, “Can we focus on the president [Bush], please? I don’t want to talk about Trump. We’re honoring a great president’s past.”
Well, that’s really rich coming from McCain, isn’t it? Wasn’t it Meghan herself who used her own father’s funeral to trash President Trump? The shrews of The View are a bunch of hypocrites. But, I digress. This is where it really got ugly:
Behar: “Excuse me a second, please. I want to talk about–”
McCain: “We’re honoring a great president who passed and I’m not interested in your one-issue voting.”
Behar: “I don’t care what you’re interested in. I’m talking!”
McCain: “Well I don’t care what you’re interested in either, Joy.”
Whoopi Goldberg quickly went to a commercial break. But, it’s what happened during that commercial break that everyone is talking about. In fact, as the camera moves away, you can see Joy and Meghan lean into each other. It happens very fast as the camera cuts to the break. Then, the real fireworks started, as Joy-less attacks Meghan McCain.
According to a Daily Mail source, immediately after, while off the air but still in front of the studio audience, Behar blew up:
Behar threw her hands in the air, yelled ‘My God!’ and ‘Get this b***h under control.’
‘If this s**t doesn’t stop I’m quitting this damn show. I can’t take this much more,’ Behar allegedly fumed.
Producers ran to the stage in an attempt to de-escalate the situation, but Behar continued to rant, the source said.
‘I’ve tolerated a lot of s**t on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled b***h. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer,’ Behar shouted, despite the studio audience being able to hear it all.
On Tuesday’s show, Joy Behar started out seated at the table. But, when GOP Representative Steve Scalise joined the shrews, big mouth Behar was surprisingly absent. It’s quite possible Joy got heated once again and walked out after Abby Hunstman and Meghan McCain blew apart her premise that Fox News is President Trump’s private TV network.
“Here’s what I think. I want to say one thing about it. He’s the only president who has his own TV channel in history. Nixon didn’t have it. So, he has Fox News, and Fox will just back him up,” Behar stated, according to the Daily Caller.
“I would be careful about that though,” co-host Abby Huntsman warned.
“Let me finish the thought,” Behar insisted. “His failure as a president means their failure as a station. They have everything invested in propping him up and backing his lies. So that is a very, very unusual position for someone to be in.”
Joy would soon be made to regret her assertion.
Huntsman easily gave an example where Fox News wasn’t easy on Trump. “Did you watch the Chris Wallace interview with President Trump a few weeks ago?” Huntsman asked. “Did you think there were some hard-hitting questions there?” she furthered, to which Behar begrudgingly admitted there were.
“That was Fox News. There are a number of folks that very much push back on him, and not in his camp that are great journalists,” Huntsman pointed out.
Then, McCain, seemingly refusing to meet Joy’s eyes, said sarcastically, “Bret Baier, Kennedy, Harris Faulkner, Shep Smith, I could go on, and on, and on. There are a lot of great people at Fox News.” The look of disgust on her face was apparent.
Then, during the following segment with Scalise, Joy was gone. I bet the producers begged loudmouth Behar to re-join the show, which she did at the end. But, it sure looks like it’s just a matter of time before the former comedian quits for good.
The ABC show is terrible. Maybe Joy got one thing right — The View is a bunch of entitled witches screaming leftist lies at the top of their lungs — and people tune in for the Jerry Springer-like atmosphere it has become.
