“The View” co-host Joy Behar described former President Trump as the “most dangerous” president in her lifetime Tuesday.
Behar, a liberal voice on the talk show who frequently criticizes Trump, said the former president is a perfect “target” for humor because he is so “stupid,” during a discussion on whether the United States has lost its sense of humor about politics.
“The guy looks at the eclipse, and they tell him, ‘Don’t do that,’ and he does exactly that. It could’ve blinded him. He believes Frederick Douglass is alive. He has no information at all. He is an incredible target for humor,” she said.
Behar then added that although the former president, is in her view, an easy target to make fun of, she still regards him as the most dangerous commander in chief she witnessed.
“He is one of the most dangerous people of my lifetime to ever be in the Oval Office,” Behar said. “He is probably the most dangerous, so you have somebody … he does not have a good sense of humor.”
The ABC host then referenced the famed incident at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, when then-President Obama joked about Trump at a time when the businessman was pushing birther conspiracy theories about Obama.
Behar disparaged Trump for being thin-skinned and called him a “menace.”
“We all know that at the Correspondents’, or when President Obama made a joke about him, his skin is thinner than his hair,” Behar said. “He got so pissed off that he had to run for president and go after poor Obama, who was born in this country. He is a menace.”
Behar is a frequent Trump critic. In 2016, she made similar comments about Trump when the then-GOP presidential candidate said he would arm Japan and South Korea, North Korea’s enemies.
“This is the most dangerous man alive right now, in my opinion,” Behar said. “It’s like, weren’t you around — didn’t you read your history books? You don’t want nuclear proliferation. You want fewer — fewer, not more nuclear weapons.”
