They say that politics makes strange bedfellows, but this is ridiculous!
If there was any question that Behar was one of the most awful partisan hacks on television, she removed all doubt today.
Like CNN, Joy Behar decided to amplify the racist leader of the alt-right, Richard Spencer.
Finding the silver lining in the conflict with Iran, Behar said that there was “some good news” — Richard Spencer has tweeted out that he regrets supporting Trump in 2016.
Behar said, “Remember Richard Spencer? He’s basically the organizer of Unite the Right, the white nationalist group that was marching in Charlottesville, he was all in for Trump. Not anymore.”
After reading his tweet, she said, “Wow. That’s interesting.”
If that wasn’t weird enough for you, the audience applauded.
It just goes to show you how ignorant the audience of The View actually is… what are they applauding?!

I’m so confused.
Did Joy not know that Spencer hasn’t been a fan of Trump for a while? That’s what got him on CNN in the first place — he said he wasn’t happy with the way that President Trump’s actions haven’t been the white supremacist utopia that he imagined.
Is Joy happy that a racist has disavowed the Bad Orange Man that she hates so much?
If so, why?
Is she just grateful that Trump’s policies have alienated a white nationalist and he’s down one vote in 2020?
Is this “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” kind of a deal?
Is she welcoming Spencer into the Resistance?
Is she ignoring his white supremacy to “own the cons”? Or is just that racism is ok if leftists do it? Because that does seem to be the case. Just look at Virginia.
Hell, Joy, if you want that guy on your side so badly, you’re welcome to him. We don’t want his racist ass on our side of the political spectrum. Besides, he’ll fit right in with 1/2 of “The Squad” — they apparently share similar views.
Behar was dragged on Twitter for making note of this on The View.
DO NOT DO THIS, GUYS. https://t.co/P1gzlYdpti

And the audience clapped…Neo-Nazis are hardline nationalists that don't believe we should be spending money on anything to do with brown people.
If Austria was under attack by Iranians, Richard Spencer would have no issue with the US sending in troops https://t.co/eXMC6GvMN6

Y’all can say that Trump Derangement Syndrome™ isn’t real, but it obviously is, and Joy Behar just might be Patient Zero.
