Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s The View, dropped a shocking insight into the lives of privileged white Americans on Monday that her underlings didn’t know. They evade jurisdiction under the Supreme Court while the rest of the huddled masses must bow.
Behar was bemoaning the death of uber-liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, while criticizing the push by President Donald Trump and the Republican-led Senate to seat a conservative replacement before the November election.
Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney demolished any fantasy Democrats had of peeling off votes to block Trump’s nominee when he announced Tuesday that he supports Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s decision to move forward.
“You know, I was thinking about the Supreme Court, because we’ve lost that battle,” Behar said. “I don’t want to talk about the Republicans anymore. We’ve lost the battle. That doesn’t mean we lost the Senate. These are the states up for grabs: Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.”
“Arizona too,” her cohost Meghan McCain chirped.
“Arizona too. That’s right. So those states could become Democratic, help the Democrats win the Senate,” Behar added. “I don’t have to worry about the Supreme Court that much because I’m white. Because I’m post menopausal so I can’t get pregnant, thank God. I happen to be straight. I have money because I’ve been working on The View for so many years,” the haughty comedienne explained. “It’s for those people who are not privileged that we have to worry about.
“That is who you’re voting for. It’s like you wear the mask for someone else and you want the Supreme Court to be a steady force in America for someone else, not for you when you’re privileged,” she claimed.
This strange flight of fancy begs the question, just how far up her keister is her head and how long has it been lodged there? She seems to have been inhaling way too much sulfur.
The Supreme Court justices hear and decide cases that have broad legal and political significance and its opinions have far-reaching impact on American society, which does not exclude Behar.
The feisty TV icon has come under frequent attack for her racial pomposity. On a 2016 episode of The View, she recalled wearing a “beautiful African woman” costume for Halloween when she was 29 years old, noting that she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”
Behar got an earful Monday from Kim Klacik, a black Republican candidate for the U.S. House who is running to represent Maryland’s 7th Congressional District that includes part of Baltimore. She appeared on the show to talk about her candidacy, but the pleasant banter turned sour when she accused Beyhar of wearing blackface because of her “white privilege.”
“Is this Joy speaking? The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago?” Klaycik asked in response to Behar’s caustic questions.
The cackling co-hosts pulled her welcome mat almost immediately after rushing to Behar’s defense.
“Listen, Kim, good luck to you,” said Behar, rudely cutting her off in mid-sentence as the show broke for commercial.
Klacik later tweeted that the co-hosts abruptly ended the segment because they did not agree with her.
“Why are they silencing black women?” Klacik wrote. She took a full frontal shot at Behar: “I think your white privilege is showing through your blackface!”
