“The View” cohost Joy Behar is unlikely to be accused of fact-checking before making accusations.
According to the host, who has drawn the ire of conservatives numerous times, the district attorney who charged actor Alec Baldwin with involuntary manslaughter only charged him because she’s a Republican.
Baldwin is accused of accidentally shooting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico Rust film set in October 2021. Baldwin, who is also a producer on the film, repeatedly insists that he does not deserve blame and points the finger at other experts.
However, as noted by the Conservative Brief, there is just one problem. The attorney general is a Democrat.
When the show came back from commercial break, Behar was forced to fix what she said.
She said, “Clarification! Something I said last segment. It’s the special prosecutor who’s now the Republican politician in New Mexico. And not the current DA. I get them mixed up sometimes. So, sue me!”
“The View” is notorious for making people angry, but this week, it was its own viewers that were upset after ABC News interrupted the show to report on Alec Baldwin’s involuntary manslaughter charges. Fans expressed their frustration on Twitter.
The accountability of justice is taking a backseat as leftists are desperately trying to defend Alec Baldwin from charges levied against him. The ladies of ‘The View’ have become completely unhinged over the news. Joy Behar was forced to apologize for making a mistake in claiming the District Attorney was Republican, when in fact she is Democrat, simply because she and her viewers were so outraged at the news report that Baldwin had been charged. While Baldwin’s fate is still yet to be seen, it’s clear that The View’s fans will not allow the show’s hosts to stray away from supporting Baldwin at any cost. It comes as no surprise to many conservatives as they know the left will do anything to protect their pet Hollywood darlings even if they have been proven guilty of wrongdoing.
