She must be confusing the Clinton crime syndicate with Republicans, in our view.
Joy Behar (shown above left), a co-host of “The View,” believes President Donald Trump and any Republicans unwilling to play along with congressional Democrats and their relentless, baseless investigation of the administration, should be “thrown in jail.”
The latest topic to amplify Behar’s battle with Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) was that of former White House counsel Don McGahn, who defied a subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee at the behest of the president.
On Monday, in a letter issued to committee chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), administration officials argued that McGahn is “absolutely immune” from being forced to testify.
The president himself explained that McGahn had already testified with the special counsel’s team for over 30 hours, and he has repeatedly told the resistance party there will be no do-overs on the collusion investigation. As such, McGahn did not appear before the committee on Tuesday, leaving Democrats fuming.
As any self-loathing member of the Left would do, Behar responded to the news by throwing a temper tantrum on the show.
“This is an unbelievably corrupt president, corrupt administration, and the Republican Party is right behind him, and they all should be thrown into jail as far as I’m concerned,” she hyperventilated.
She added, “Lock ’em up!”
For her part, co-host Meghan McCain (above right) hit back at Behar, saying, “You’re clearly frustrated this morning.”
Well, to be fair, uncontrolled frustration is a major side effect of TDS.
“You’re saying to the American public that all Republicans holding office should be in jail, so I want to know …” McCain continued.
Behar interrupted, claiming, “Well, you know, it’s what you call, hyperbole.”
Go ahead and watch that video above again. When Behar begins talking about jail time, watch her clenched right fist shaking as she speaks. That isn’t hyperbole. She means what she’s saying, and McCain is right to call her out for the incendiary talk.
“It doesn’t sound that way to the Republican at the table, for what it’s worth,” McCain responded. “It sounds a little aggressive.”
Bitter Behar has been longing to see somebody, anybody, thrown into jail that is a prominent member of the Trump family or the Republican Party.
She previously said that President Trump needed to “save the pardons for his children,” assuming either Donald Trump Jr. or Ivanka would eventually be indicted.
That didn’t pan out for her.
When she’s not fantasizing about the Trump family or Republicans being hauled off to jail, she openly expresses her support for the forced sterilization of conservative men for daring to pass a pro-life bill in Alabama.
Just a couple of weeks ago, she demanded that all supporters of the president remove their flag pins because they’re clearly, in her mind, unpatriotic.
Perhaps all of that was hyperbole, too?
