Joy Behar: ‘The Level Of Cowardice In The Republican Party Right Now Is Despicable’



(Breitbart) – Friday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar said Republicans who thought President Donald Trump was “an idiot,” and do not come forward with that opinion but choose to retire instead are cowards.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “Now we have to go to even scarier stuff like the 2020 election. It’s approaching, and it seems like a lot of folks are tapping out, Republicans in particular. 15 Republican members of Congress are set to retire with only two seeking higher office. Why do you think they’re bailing now, and what is this? What does this mean, or does it mean anything for the GOP?”

Co-host Joy Behar said, “Well, they are in the minority in the House, and they don’t like it, you know? What I don’t understand is if some of them don’t like Trump and you’re leaving anyway, why not just say something about it? The level of cowardice in the Republican Party right now is despicable, in my opinion. If these people are quitting and not standing up against this president, who we all know secretly they think is an idiot. You know that’s true, but they won’t say anything. If you are running for office again and you want to get re-elected, then you need Trump to get re-elected, it’s almost understandable that you would be a hypocrite, but when you are quitting anyway, and you are retiring, and then you say nothing, wow.”

Flashback: Joy Behar: Compared To Trump, Biden Is Albert Einstein

Wednesday on ABC’s “The View,” the hosts discussed 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful former Vice President Joe Biden telling a war story with mixed facts from three separate events.

Co-host Abby Huntsman said, “I think when you’re running against President Trump, facts matter.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg busted out loudly laughing.

Co-host Joy Behar said, “Compared to Trump, who thinks Frederick Douglass is alive and who looks directly into the sun during an eclipse, this guy is like Albert Einstein.”

She added, “If he was running against Abraham Lincoln, he’d have an issue, but he’s not. The other thing about Biden I believe he has a certain amount of Teflon ability, you know? That people know him, and they know the gaffes, and they know that he screwed up with Anita Hill, and they know that he’s touchy-feely and he didn’t mean it. Everything has been out there already, and we’re still voting for him in big numbers.”
