Joy Behar Compares Trump Supporters to 'Lemmings Going Over a Cliff’
'The View' Co-host slams President's 'herd mentality' remarks
Co-host Joy Behar likened supporters of President Donald Trump to "lemmings going over a cliff" due to “herd mentality."
Behar made the comments during ABC’s “The View" on Wednesday referencing Trump's comments saying coronavirus would “disappear."
When Behar was asked about Trump’s performance, she said:
“His lies come fast and furious."
"I have whiplash, but I want to give kudos to George Stephanopoulos because he did fact-check him on the BS about having the new health plan and how Obamacare doesn’t work, etc., whatever," she said.
"So I think that’s a good standard for all the reporters to follow," Behar continued.
"Just fact check in realtime. Of course, he lies so much that it would be a 26-hour interview.”
“What interested me also was his use of the term herd mentality."
"Now, it’s really herd immunity that he meant to say, but it’s an interesting Freudian slip, isn’t it?"
"It kind of describes the people that continue to follow him," she added.
"They’re in a herd mentality kind of like lemmings going over a cliff.”
“I might add that as Howard Stern said, he has nothing but contempt for this herd," Behar stated.
"He put it out there because he secretly thinks that they’re horrible people. That’s what I think," she added.
'By the way, in the last 48 hours, this is what we learned from him, exploding trees cause wildfires, a mask mandate is a bad idea because waiters don’t like them, and he has a plan for health care."
"Which if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you.”
