None of the harpies who host the worst cable television talk show in history are what you would call stable in a brain chemical sort of way, but the older co-host Joy Behar gets, the more explosive her temper gets, a fact put on display during a recent episode of the program where she blew her top after a colleague predicted Trump would take home a big victory in the 2024 presidential election.
The prediction came via Sara Haines who said she is convinced former President Donald Trump would be placed back on the ballot in both Colorado and Maine, thanks to a decision that will come down from the Supreme Court.
“The point I would say here is that I actually agree with [California] Gov. Gavin Newsom and [political strategist] David Axelrod — these are Democrats, leading Democrats, — that say this would really cause a division that’s almost insurmountable and as someone that believes January 6th was that bad —” Haines said during the program before Behar interjected, “So what are you saying?”
“Just one second … One, I don’t think the Supreme Court’s gonna hold this. I think they’re gonna overturn it and it won’t just be the originalists,” Haines explained. “I bet it’s a 9-0 vote. I actually don’t think they will hold this.”
“So do you think they should leave it to the voters or not?” Behar, beginning to blow steam out of her ears, interrupted.
“I think they should leave it to the voters,” Haines stated.
“Oh no,” Behar replied immediately.
See, here’s the truth. Behar and other liberals don’t want you and I, the voters, to decide who should be president. They don’t believe we are capable of making a smart, well informed decision. Therefore, choice should be stripped from the pleebs and given to the elites, which just so happens to include Behar and everyone who holds the same set of beliefs she does. Convenient, right?
Here’s more from the Daily Caller:
Haines argued if the court upholds the states’ decisions, Trump will become more of a martyr in the eyes of his voters. She said that many Americans no longer “believe in democracy” and that voters will see the 2024 election as “rigged” if Trump is taken off the ballot.
“No, I don’t agree,” Behar fired back. “I think that the law will stand and people should follow the law. Listen, if you’re not gonna follow an amendment, then why don’t we have Taylor Swift run for president?”
Democratic Maine Secretary of State Shenna Bellows and four of the Colorado Supreme Court’s seven justices ruled that Trump was ineligible to appear on the ballot due to his alleged violation of Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which states that no person may hold elected office who has “engaged in insurrection or rebellion against” the United States.
Critics of the decision, including Colorado Supreme Court Justice Carlos Samour, argue that the amendment gives Congress the power to define “insurrection or rebellion” and that Trump has not been convicted of — or even charged with — either.
Behar might want to get some help for that temper.
