Joy Behar has made it pretty clear over the last year or so that she doesn’t really follow politics. She skims through Facebook. Reads the occasional article or two on Buzzfeed. But, there’s just no way she actually follows what’s going on.
Here’s her reaction to the Flynn nothing burger that dropped last week.
This video of Joy Behar cheering the Flynn news this morning is a good case study for how partisans disseminate information. She has only the smallest, most basic idea of what has happened, and she treats it as a game changer anyway. You wonder how "fake news" spreads? Watch: pic.twitter.com/NFVUIMj2K2

That’s nothing new for Joy, though.
When Elizabeth Warren was on the program, the level of insanity that was reached was off the charts.
From Fox News:
On “The View,” comedian Joy Behar and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) compared President Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
Warren was asked about the increasingly tense situation in North Korea.
Warren called Kim an “unstable man who has nuclear weapons,” when Behar interjected and asked if she was talking about Trump.
Warren smiled and said the dictator was about to deal with another “unstable man who has nuclear weapons,” referring to the president.
Simply put. Joy Behar is out of her mind.
On Monday, Joy Behar finally admitted what we all know. She doesn’t care about what happens to the country. In fact, she wants bad things to happen to the country because Trump will get the blame.
From The Daily Caller:
Joy Behar admitted on “The View” Monday that she hopes President Donald Trump doesn’t succeed.
“I’m not so sure I want him [Trump] to succeed at destroying the environment, playing chicken with Kim Jong-Un,” Behar explained. “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.”
“I still at the end of the day, I love America,” McCain responded. “I’m a true patriot. I want Trump to succeed. I want Obama to succeed. I want America to continue being the greatest.”
“I love America too, it’s him I can’t stand,” Behar snapped back and then threw to a commercial break.
Here’s the clip. It’s definitely a difficult one to sit through.
It’s one thing to say you want specific policies to fail but Joy seemed to go a step further than that. Joy basically admitted she hopes Trump fails which means the country fails. You want Trump to fail with North Korea? What does that mean? You want war? You want more nukes in North Korea? There’s just no way that Joy actually thought through what she was saying.
Joy represents everything wrong with politics today. Conservatives hated Obama. For good reason. The guy was in way over his head and he did an incredible amount of damage to the country. However, most conservatives wanted America to succeed despite his ineptitude. Liberals today aren’t the same way. Liberals today hate Trump so much that they seem perfectly willing to let bad things happen to America if it means they can joke around about it or pile on Trump for it.
That’s just wrong.
