Joy Behar Laments Republican Election: ‘The Only Checks and Balances is The View’

Riiiiiiight, because that show is so fair and balanced.

Most of the ladies on The View were discontented with Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton. Of course, co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg took it the hardest.

But what Clinton apologist Behar said might take the cake for the stupidest thing ever said on the ABC show. Her rant began like this:

“It was a rough night for everybody, I think. You know, we’re worried. The people are worried, you know. Okay, he’s the president. Now what? We’re watching you, okay?

“What scares me the most… is that, not since George W. Bush has there been a White House, a Senate, and a House of Representatives all from the same party. And then the FBI stuck its nasty little nose in the middle of this. Plus the Supreme Court; who knows where that’s going to go. So, the only checks and balances we have are us, The View. That’s it.”

Nobody contested this ridiculousness and the audience gladly applauded.

The resident conservative on the panel, Candace Cameron Bure, admitted to being nervous to speak of her happiness that Clinton wasn’t elected knowing the backlash her colleagues would dish out. Not helping matters was Goldberg who wasn’t too interested in Bure’s clinging to her Christian faith as she promised to pray for the direction of the country. 

“Yeah, God says a lot of wonderful stuff, He really does,” Goldberg said a bit sarcastically. “And I like God a lot, but I have to say that given the bigger picture of what Donald Trump represents, it is not so comfortable for me.”

“But for those who don’t have a relationship with God… what do they do?” Goldberg asked.

As the conversation shifted again, Behar chimed back in with something she learned during this election:

“I learned that, as usual, men can get away with anything and women can get away with nothing. That’s what I learned.”

Which could rank as the second stupidest thing ever said on The View because at last count, Clinton wasn’t charged with breaking a serious federal crime. That is, she got away with it for those dumbed-down by watching this show.
