The View’s Joy Behar broke ranks and called out this liberal

No one ever accused Joy Behar of being anything other than a Democrat shill. But now she’s singing a different tune.

And The View’s Joy Behar broke ranks and called out this liberal.

Joy Behar, co-host of The View, lashed out at Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on Thursday’s episode, fearing the third-party candidate would steal votes from President Biden.

“Someone has to ask him why are you doing this? Why do you want to destroy the election and hand it to Trump if possible?” Behar scolded.

“He’s a Kennedy. His forefathers are rolling over in their graves. His own family is telling him — we already have one clown in the race. Do we need two of them?” she added.

Behar’s remarks come as Democratic strategists and Kennedy family members warn that the candidate might gravely jeopardize Biden’s re-election bid.

Co-host Sara Haines pushed back, claiming Kennedy was not attempting to “ruin the election” on purpose, but rather to appeal to voters like herself who believe a third-party candidate should be considered in the future.

“I just don’t think it’s this election,” she explained.

Behar maintained that RFK Jr.’s candidacy would destroy the country if it helped former President Donald Trump win re-election.

“Well, I think many times delusion has destroyed a country and that’s what we’re dealing with here with this. The polls are too close,” she feared.

“[P]eople are starting to focus and realize the danger that Trump poses. I believe that,” Behar continued.

Democratic strategists have warned about the third-party threat to Biden’s re-election, citing polls that show a close race between Trump and Biden.

On Monday, Paul Begala, a former Bill Clinton aide, claimed that Kennedy would hand “the whole election to Donald Trump.”

“Third parties elected Donald Trump in 2016, about six to seven percent of Americans voted third-party. That third-party vote dropped to less than two, which is how Biden won. So, anything over two, Democrats are in trouble. Kennedy alone is getting 15 in some of these places. So yeah, my view is third parties, they’re like cockroaches in the kitchen, OK?” he said on CNN.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s sister, Rory Kennedy, expressed concern on Monday that his candidacy could jeopardize President Biden’s re-election chances.

“It’s really about siphoning votes from Biden,” Rory went on to say.

“The polls I’m seeing, Bobby takes 70% of the votes from Biden and 30% from Trump. I feel strongly that this is the most important election of our lifetime. There’s so much at stake and I do think it’s going to come down to a handful of votes in a handful of states.”

“I do worry that Bobby just taking some percentage of votes from Biden could shift the election and lead to Trump’s election,” she went on to say.

Last October, members of the Kennedy family officially condemned RFK Jr.’s campaign, calling it “perilous for our country.”
