On Wednesday’s airing of “The View,” Joy Behar declared that Tucker Carlson should be “tied up and put in a corner somewhere,” presumably because the Fox News host is not covering “white supremacy” the way she prefers.
Behar also angrily ranted that Carlson should be sent somewhere “so we never hear from him again” before hastily backtracking and insisting that she does not advocate violence.
At the end of the segment, the left-wing comedienne awkwardly interrupted Whoopi Goldberg to walk back the statements in case they’re misinterpreted.
“I do not mean to imply that anything harmful should happen to Tucker Carlson,” she said. “I just want him to stop saying stupid things. That’s all. So let me just get that straight. I don’t want to be perceived as someone who is violent in any way. I’m not.”
Earlier this week, Carlson drew condemnation from the left for claiming, “there’s no evidence that white supremacists were responsible for what happened” at the Capitol insurrection.
“How dare he say there was no evidence of white supremacy there! There was evidence everywhere!” far left co-host Sunny Hostin shouted Wednesday. “You have Tucker Carlson on television last night saying that there was no evidence of white supremacists at the riot. Well, the evidence was clear at the riot, at the insurrection.”
Behar and Hostin then went on to attack Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson and mock Republican Florida Gov. Ron Desantis.
Behar claimed Johnson “has become the perfect face for the Republican Party” because he’s a “liar, a denier” and “floats crazy conspiracy theories.”
