Joy Behar used an awkward moment of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to attack First Lady Melania Trump on Monday during a segment on the ABC talk show “The View.”
The Daily Caller reported that the female cohosts of the talk show were discussing Biden’s cringeworthy viral moment over the weekend in which he was caught nibbling on his wife Jill’s finger. Though the moment went viral for all the wrong reasons, the cohosts of the notoriously liberal talk show tried to use it to paint Biden in a positive light.
“I thought it was silly and, like, they clearly still love each other and are playful,” Meghan McCain said, with guest host Yvette Nicole Brown adding, “I think it’s adorable, and it’s just kind of a reflex. You put your finger in someone’s face, they kind of go for it. It was a reflex. It was sweet.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
“That’s what I did with Bernie Sanders when I did Bill Maher with him years ago,” Abby Huntsman stated. “He kept going like with his with his hands. I did not nibble. You have to do something. Everyone sees it’s uncomfortable. I thought in that moment, they look like they’re very happy, and frankly he needs to do more of that. That’s his soft side.”
That’s when Behar jumped in to use the moment to bash Melania.
“They seem to like each other though, still. Melania looks like she’s at a funeral half the time,” Behar said as the audience burst out laughing. “Not for nothing.”
This is far from the first time that Behar has gone after President Donald Trump’s family. After Trump won the election in 2016, Melania decided to remain in New York City until June of 2017 so that her 11 year-old son Barron could finish out his school year. Behar was not a fan of this decision, and she resorted to disrespecting Barron on her show by referring to him as “that child.”
“Somebody find this out for me, the price that we’re paying for losing the NEA, the National Endowment for the Arts, because we are paying for this woman to live in New York with that child,” Behar said at the time.
Behar is known for being a vocal critic against President Trump, but some viewers think she takes things too far when she goes after members of his family.
