TV personality Joy Behar is attacking Mitt Romney for disagreeing with President Obama’s recent call to hire more firemen and other public-sector workers, saying she would like to see one of his homes catch fire.
“Quite openly we’ve come to expect nothing more than this kind of extremely cheap excrement spewing from Joy Behar’s mouth, says William Blake of The News.
“It is one issue to openly use one’s First Amendment rights under the law, Blake continues; however, for a person working for an elite television network (ABC) to state she’d like to see one of his homes to catch fire is beyond the realm of civility.”
Just for those who care – the heyday of politically motivated “comedians” who couldn’t buy a laugh at the Comedy Club or the Improv for their lack of material – who for the goodness of humankind ought to be relegated out to pasture where they belong.
But I digress…who on earth does Joy Behar think she is? She also is not funny and has very little, if any, political sense whatsoever.
Worse still is her espousing, “I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down,” said Behar, a co-host on ABC’s “The View” daytime talk show, in an interview with the website Mediaite . “Who’s he going to call, the Mormon fire patrol?”
So now she’s bringing in her brand of comedy… “One of his millions of houses burning down” and then she, of all people fires away with a religious taunt like, “Who’s he going to call, the Mormon fire patrol?”
How does ABC even tolerate this kind of rubbish? O’Donnell made a comment about “The Donald’s” comb-over hair style and was hit by the door before the show’s end.
Behar, recently hired to work on Al Gore’s cable TV station Current, is a former school teacher who reportedly got started in show biz in the 1980s as a standup comic. Easy enough for us to see that the company she keeps is further testament to who she wants to be including Mr Internet-the sky’s on fire-global warming expert, Al Gore as well as Eliot Spitzer and some other savory types.
Behar explains about her new show that she would like to interview and challenge conservatives to come on her show, “if they have the balls.”
