ABC’s Joy Behar stated on “The View” that President Trump is more hostile than North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un or Russian President Vladimir Putin. Semi-conservative Meghan McCain called her to task for it.
“We have gotten to a point in the world now where we have to rely on the sanity of Kim Jong-Un and Putin over the President of the United States,” Behar said when discussing recent tweets sent by Trump that threatened military action against Syria. “That’s where we’re at,” Behar said before praising a Russian official who condemned diplomacy via Twitter.
The segment of the show began with Whoopi Goldberg mocking Trump for criticizing Barack Obama telegraphing what he would do on foreign policy, then playing clips of Trump saying he liked the element of surprise, then segueing to Trump’s tweet saying Russia had better watch out in Syria for a possible missile strike in Syria. Host Sara Haines said, “I kind of remember the good old days when he was friends with dictators. Now that he’s threatening them, I don’t know which one’s scarier.”
Sunny Hostin said she doesn’t think Trump is able to compartmentalize things “the way a President should,” and therefore gets easily agitated. “Bill Clinton was famous for being able to compartmentalize,” Behar quipped. Meghan McCain stepped in to disagree. She pointed out the fact that there were going to be people attacking the President no matter what he did. “There’s no way for him to win though. When he says nothing about Russia, people get angry. When he’s threatening Russia, people get angry. I think we really need to pick our battles. I know it’s like sort of funny to laugh at this, but we’re talking about genocide in Syria.”
Goldberg said, “I’m at the point where if you’re going to wag yourself around and say that ‘I’m a big guy,’ then don’t not point out that other folks have had to do the same thing. Because you thought you were gong to be able to do this—”
McCain then went on to turn the attack on Behar. “My issue is the moral relativism between someone like Kim Jong-Un and Putin and President Trump. I think it’s easy to sort of sit here and say that …”
Behar could not contain herself, “Do you think Kim Jong-Un is less moral than Trump?” “Oh, my God,” McCain replied. “I think Putin’s aiding and abetting Assad right now.” “On what topic, on what topic?” Behar interjected. “Chemical gassing of children — last time I checked, America isn’t doing that to anyone,” McCain said in reference to Putin’s enabling of Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons. Behar went on to defend the North Korean dictator by saying, “Kim Jong-Un doesn’t do that. What are you talking about?” Point of fact… Kim Jong-Un does that and much worse to children.
McCain stated forcefully that even though she disagrees with Trump frequently, anyone who compares him to evil murderous dictators loses all arguments in her eyes. She added, “If you think that Kim Jong-Un, Vladimir Putin, Bashar al Assad, and President Trump are all the exact same thing, it’s when you lose all arguments with me, in every way.” “What I’m saying is I see the two of them with backing off of war, and I see President Trump provoking war,” Behar fired back. “Trump is not provoking war!” McCain snapped.
The exchange began after Trump’s tweets this week were shown threatening military action against Syria after an alleged chemical attack in the town of Douma injured hundreds, as Russia denied the event ever took place. Nikki Haley says we now have proof that Assad used a mixture of a nerve agent and chlorine gas on his people.
Behar and McCain never came even close to agreeing here. Joy has no problem with communists and dictators… McCain does. President Trump is neither and to compare him even remotely to either Kim Jong-Un or Vladimir Putin is ridiculous and disingenuous. Comparing President Trump to the murderous trio of Kim Jong-Un, Vladmir Putin and Bashar Assad is just vile, which pretty much sums up Joy Behar in a nutshell.
