Liberal television host Joy Behar called-for civil unrest over the Trump administration’s undemocratic policies and regulations on Tuesday; saying the US is on a “slippery slope” towards “throwing democracy out the window” but failing to name any specific policies are laws that violate the constitution.
‘The View’ host was discussing the daily street protests that swept across Iran over the weekend, predictably turning her sights on President Trump and his tweets regarding the demonstrations.
“They told Donald Trump to stay out of it and not to tweet, of course he did. Telling him not too tweet is like telling a five-year-old not to eat the candy,” said Behar. “Just stay where you are in Mar-a-Lago, keep playing golf.”
“If –somehow- they are able to get themselves free from the chains that bind them, from this autocratic regime, it would be a huge game-changer the world over,” said guest Ana Navarro.
“I think that’s true in this country also, if we can get away from [Trump,]” added Joy. “We’re on a very slippery slope in this country towards throwing democracy out the window every single day… It’s a relative thing. We have other reasons to protest in the streets in this country.”

HELL FREEZES OVER: Joy Behar APOLOGIZES for Phony Trump Report
Liberal comedian Joy Behar did the unthinkable on Monday, apologizing for touting a false ABC news report that claimed President Trump asked former National Security Adviser to contact Russian officials while he was actively running for the presidency.
“On Friday’s show, apparently, I was guilty of premature evaluation,” said Behar. “Here’s what happened: ABC News reporter Brian Ross released a story claiming that when Trump was a candidate he told Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. Ross later corrected himself saying it was actually when Trump was President-elect.”
“Brian has been suspended for a month,” she added.
Her ‘View’ co-host read the official statement by NBC News, saying Ross had made a mistake and would be suspended for four weeks without pay.
“That’s ABC’s statement. Brian Ross has released a statement, saying ‘My job is to hold people accountable, and that’s why I agree with being held accountable myself,'” added Behar.
“I would say that this is not fake news, it’s a mistake. He didn’t deliberately put out a false piece of information, he made an error,” she deflected.
