Joy Behar, co-host on the popular morning talk show “The View,” tore into President Donald Trump and questioned his mental stability — prompting backlash across social media (video below).
During a discussion on the show that followed the release of the controversial new book “Fire and Fury,” Behar made shocking statements about the president.
“Trump needs to be medicated and hospitalized at this point or he is going to just kill all of us,” Behar says in a clip of the remarks. “You know, my feeling is probably they’re getting closer to him in the [Robert] Mueller investigation, and that’s what this is about, a lot of it.”
Behar also criticizes Trump in her comments for wanting to “blow the whole world up so his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail.”
After the episode aired, Behar’s comments sparked intense backlash across social media.
“Dealing with Joy Behar is like dealing with Rosie O’Donnell. They are not worth the time or the energy. I think most women are smart enough to see through the vulgar set of Lies that Joy Behar attempts to portray about our president. Sickening and disgusting,” one Twitter user wrote following Behar’s comments.
“Joy, you are joyless! You really need to check yourself into a Mental Health facility! We haven’t watched your show in years. You are [completely] out of touch with what’s really going on! Surprised The View hasn’t been canceled with such low ratings,” another viewer commented on Right Stuff’s Facebook page.
“The economy is the truth maybe if you quit listening yo the view and read the news paper particularly the money and stock market sections, then you would learn the truth about the job he’s doing… the view is opinion and bias and there for ignorant dumb a**es who are followers of trash news,” another wrote.
“Joy, the audience hates your rhetoric. You are vicious and narcissist. It’s stressful to hear what you blab up every day. I don’t watch but your venom gets spread like rat poison. What a bitter, vile, s**tty person you are,” another added.
“How about the morons that tune into this piece of trash every day? Has anyone ever checked out their mental capabilities? Just like the Oprah viewers, they read what she tells them to read, buy what she tells them to buy think what she tells them to think. It’s not possible that they have a thought process of Their Own. If they were to do any research or fact checking on their own, they would turn off the show in a heartbeat,” another viewer commented.
Meanwhile, Trump has continued to be defended by the White House as more insider information is leaked — most recently the revelation reported by Axios that Trump’s start time in the morning has gradually become later and later due to the fact that he needs time in the morning to go on Twitter and watch TV. The report stated that the president often starts his work day as late as 11 a.m.
“The time in the morning is a mix of residence time and Oval Office time but he always has calls with staff, Hill members, cabinet members and foreign leaders during this time. The President is one of the hardest workers I’ve ever seen and puts in long hours and long days nearly every day of the week all year long. It has been noted by reporters many times that they wish he would slow down because they sometimes have trouble keeping up with him,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Axios in a statement responding to the report.
