The View’s Joy Behar: “Outrageous & Stupid to Call Black Person Racist”

Liberal television host says Trump wrong to call out Rep. Elijah Cummings' failed leadership

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View,” made another ridiculous statement on Monday when she claimed black people cannot be racist.

The discussion revolved around President Trump’s Twitter feud with Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) where POTUS was criticized as racist for calling Cummings’ district “a disgusting, rat and rodent-infested mess.”

Trump defended his comments about Cummings, saying it’s not racist to state what people already know about Baltimore’s poor leadership.

The president then turned the table on Cummings, saying he is the true racist.

“If racist Elijah Cummings would focus more of his energy on helping the good people of his district, and Baltimore itself, perhaps progress could be made in fixing the mess that he has helped to create over many years of incompetent leadership,” President Trump lashed out on Twitter.

Kicking off Behar’s remark was an ironic statement from co-host Whoopie Goldberg who said Trump called Cummings racist without knowing what it actually means.

Meanwhile, the entirety of America’s political left has been screaming racist at anyone who supports the president without any justification, ultimately taking the sting out of the accusation.

“Elijah is the black man,” Behar told Whoopie. “He’s calling the black man the racist. I mean, I don’t think people understand that particularly. It’s outrageous and stupid to call a black person a racist.”

Even Whoopie seemed to disagree with Behar, only responding, “…okay,” while looking out of the side of her eyes.

Behar is perpetuating the odd liberal position that minorities cannot be racist despite the dictionary definition confirming otherwise.
