Since “The View” co-host Joy Behar tragically helped spread a false report from ABC News that said previous National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was requested by then-applicant Donald Trump to reach the Russians, she backtracked on her euphoric response Monday when she initially told the audience.
As the co-hosts were talking about the consequences of making a hasty judgment and not doing their part to check data, Behar later confessed to not needing President Trump to succeed.
“I have a lot of things to say about this. When it happened in real time, I think everyone was watching the show could see my discomfort at the room erupting like the Dodgers had just won the World Series,” co-host Megan McCain stated.
“Because I do think holding people to both standards — I remember when Barack Obama was in office Rush Limbaugh saying, ‘I want my president to fail.’ “
“And coming out and saying I could never get behind that because if our president fails it means America fails,” she included.
Behar passionately couldn’t help contradicting McCain, saying:
“I’m not so sure I want Trump to succeed at destroying the environment, playing chicken with Kim Jong Un. So I don’t want him to succeed at a lot of things. As you say, ‘We want our president to succeed.’ No I don’t.”
“Well, I didn’t expect you not to admit that,” McCain reacted.
