The View co-host Joy Behar stated on Tuesday’s program that what concerns her most about Donald Trump is that he is mentally unstable.
Whoopi Goldberg said “this new administration is bringing in something we haven’t seen in a long time,” and Behar interjected, “Mental illness.”
“Sorry, I couldn’t control myself,” she added in a tone somewhere between anger and joking.
Goldberg offered some counsel fellow comedian Jon Stewart gave to those who are upset at the prospect of a Trump presidency. “Just like President Obama didn’t change and fix everything when he was in office, President Trump can’t ruin everything,” she said.
Conservative co-host Jedidiah Bila agreed with Goldberg that those who are concerned about the new administration should trust in the wisdom of the Founders, who set up checks and balances, dividing the power of government.
She pointed out that Republicans were able to check President Obama on a number of issues, including gun control.
Behar disagreed: “Do you know how much damage [Trump] can do in four years? Do you have any idea? Trump has no experience, [Steve] Bannon has no experience in politics.”
Obama also brought very little experience to the White House, having served in the Illinois state senate and part of a term as U.S. senator.
Behar further explained her position. “It’s not that I don’t agree with [Trump], he’s not right in the head,” she said.
She found President Obama and the first lady to be “mentally stable ” when they appeared on The View prior to him taking office.
“Donald Trump has never appeared stable to me when he has come on the show, no he has not,” the co-host said.
Behar seemed almost inconsolable the day after the election last month, when she said on the program, “I don’t know what scares the rest of you the most, is that not since George W. Bush has there been a White House, a Senate and a House of Representatives all from the same party.”
“And then the FBI has stuck its nasty little nose in the middle of this. Plus the Supreme Court, who knows where that’s going to go? So the only checks and balances we have are us, The View. That’s it!” she joked.
Behar’s statement about neither party having a unified government since President George W. Bush was wrong and likely reflected her liberal bias. During the first two years of the Obama administration, the Democrats held not only the White House, but both chambers of Congress.
In fact, they had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate for most of those two years, which Trump will not enjoy at the beginning of his administration, with the Republicans only having a one- or two-seat majority.
