On Thursday’s episode of “The View,” cohost Joy Behar took a shot at Eric Trump, saying that she doesn’t understand why he doesn’t have a conservator if the singer Britney Spears does.
After it was announced that Spears was being given the freedom to choose her own attorney as she fights her father’s conservatorship over her, Behar said that she’s glad to see the singer getting some freedom over her life. Her conservative cohost Meghan McCain began by saying that Spears’ family members were partly to blame for her situation.
“If this were happening to a family member of mine, I would have beaten a door down and done anything possible to remove them from that situation. None of them did enough … Go to hell, everyone,” McCain said.
That’s when Behar chimed in to somehow link the Trump family to this.
“I’m glad that this is going to be over for this girl because there’s something weird about a 39-year-old woman being in this situation,” Behar said in agreement. “Eric Trump is out there acting like an idiot and nobody has him in a conservatorship. I don’t understand the whole thing, frankly.”
“I love that Matt Gaetz is getting involved in this. That is my favorite thing about the Britney Spears story right this minute,” she continued. “He certainly knows what a grifter looks like, darling, out there. He’s under investigation for sex trafficking and he’s sticking his two cents into Britney Spears’ grifter father.”
“You can’t make this stuff up after a while. It sounds so ridiculous,” Behar concluded. “But good luck to her. She’s a nice girl. I guess. I don’t know her.”
BRITNEY WINS RIGHT TO HIRE OWN LAWYER: Britney Spears scored a major legal victory on Wednesday when the court ruled that she can hire her own attorney, and she’s calling for her father to be investigated for conservatorship abuse — the co-hosts react. https://t.co/v2XtBLfIcO pic.twitter.com/CeYJUHET3G

Behar spent four years relentlessly and obsessively attacking former President Donald Trump and his family, and she has not let up at all despite the fact that he is out of office. Many would argue that she has one of the worst cases of Trump derangement syndrome of anyone on television, which is saying a lot given how many TV personalities are hopelessly infected with it.
