On Thursday’s episode of “The View,” Joy Behar took her hatred for Donald Trump and conservatives to a whole new level when she accused the president and his Republican “enablers” of committing “negligent genocide.”
Behar let loose on the ABC talk show in response to President Trump admitting to Bob Woodward that he had downplayed the seriousness of COVID-19 despite the fact that he knew it was “deadly stuff.”
“He is not that bright,” Behar said of Trump. “Who gives 18 interviews to Bob Woodward? That’s really stupid. I was watching the news, and a lot of people are talking about what he said and everything, but I would like to talk about something because as criminally negligent as Trump is, I would like to indict the enablers for a moment if I may.”
She then listed out all the conservative “enablers” that she wishes to indict.
“Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Kevin McCarthy, Senator Kennedy…senator of Louisiana, Senator Cramer of North Dakota, the silence of Republican leadership on Bounty-gate was deafening and on calling soldiers losers, but this is what I would call negligent genocide,” the 77-year-old television personality said.
Not stopping there, Behar shifted back to targeting President Trump.
“Trump knew the virus was deadly, and he held rallies and encouraged people to go out and not wear masks,” she ranted. “He said, go out and enjoy yourselves. It’s going to be gone in a minute. What do the enablers say? I haven’t read the book. This is a gotcha book, or they say nothing. I would like to call on Mitt Romney today to open up his mouth because he’s the only one we can rely on to even say this much. Okay? Find your testicularity, Senator Romney, and speak out today. Thank you very much.”

This comes days after Behar slammed Trump for saying that a COVID-19 vaccine could be available as soon as next month.
“As far as the vaccine is concerned, I’d like to inform America — in case we don’t know this because I looked all this up for you — the mumps vaccine took four years, the polio vaccine took 20 years, and the smallpox vaccine took a few centuries,” Behar said. “It was developed initially in 1796, when they started to think about it, and it became useful in the 1950s. OK? It is not a simple thing to do.”
“He will push anything to get reelected,” she added. “Don’t fall for it, and by the way, I will take the vaccine after Ivanka takes it.”
