Joy Behar and the gang at The View outdid themselves with an unhinged attack on Brett Kavanaugh.
They were trying to make sense of what happened during the Corey Lewandoski debacle and predictably refused to blame the Democrats for holding a disorganized kangaroo court.
Instead, they ripped on Corey – look, administrations have always stonewalled Congress, Trump’s team may be taking it farther than others but this is not new in Washington.
What is new is the Democrats seem unwilling or incapable of doing anything about it. The GOP held Eric Holder in contempt and made other power moves the left seems unable to pull off. Their caucus is divided with the key moderates trying to protect their flank by not attacking Trump too much.
But the real villain, as Joy made clear, was not Corey or the Democrats but Brett Kavanaugh. That is the problem when the NYT’s must issue a correction to its smears.
The false story traveled around the world before they could even issue the correction and thus we have the misinformed Joy Behar attacking Brett in her typical nasty fashion on national TV.
JOY BEHAR: I couldn’t stand watching it or listening to it on the radio hearing it, is the snarkiness of it. I’ve taught juvenile delinquents who were more respectful in a class room than this guy!
ABBY HUNTSMAN: I thought the same thing.
BEHAR: –Than Kavanaugh, remember Kavanaugh? And others who are in this administration who working for Trump. I have had kids who were murderers and pimps who behave better than this! [applause]
HUNTSMAN: I thought the same thing, Joy.
Apparently Behar saw nothing wrong with how rude and insulting Democrats always behave towards Trump campaign or administration officials during these hearings. Clearly seeing with rose-tinted-glasses, Behar thought these hearings would only get more Americans supporting impeachment:
“I think that the American people are watching this, and maybe that’s the answer. Let’s just indict and show what they’re like. That’s why I believe maybe Nancy’s going to move towards impeachment soon. Put it on TV. Let’s see what it is!”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg agreed, saying that we were in “basically a lawless country right now,” because the Trump administration and campaign thought it was “above the law.”
“And if you don’t see it, it’s because your eyes are closed. Open your eyes!” she warned.
