The media’s non-stop meltdown following President Trump’s refusal to appease North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was on full display Wednesday, with comedian Joy Behar saying Trump needs to be “medicated and hospitalized” before he “just kills all of us.”
‘The View’ hosts were discussing the President’s tweet to Kim Jong Un earlier this week, when the Commander-in-Chief warned the dictator that he too has a “nuclear button,” but unlike Kim’s, his “button works.”
“Trump needs to be medicated and hospitalized at this point or he’s going to just kill all of us. My feeling is that probably they’re getting closer to him in the Mueller investigation, and that’s what this is about,” said Behar.
“He’ll blow the whole world up so his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail,” the liberal host added.
The President made national headlines earlier this week when he issued a stark warning to Kim Jong Un regarding America’s unwillingness to co-exist with a nuclear-armed North Korea; saying the US has a much “bigger and more powerful” arsenal at its disposal.

WATCH: Sarah Huckabee Sanders DESTROYS The View's Joy Behar On-Air
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went head-to-head with the View’s Joy Behar on Wednesday, telling the liberal comedian she was “pushing a false narrative” and that all patriotic Americans should want the President to succeed.
Fireworks exploded after Behar pressed the Press Secretary over a recent report that baselessly claimed that 95% of what President Trump says is “not factual.”
“Is the media supposed to not report on the fact that 95% of what he says is a lie?” asked the liberal host.
“The problem with that Joy is that you are doing exactly what we’re talking about and pushing a false narrative,” fired-back Sanders. “95% of what the President says is not a lie.”
“It’s not just the dreaded New York Times. It is other outlets that say it. 5% of his statements are true,” responded Behar. “I feel sorry for you that you have to go out and defend those lies every day.”
“Again, I completely disagree with [you]. I know that is simply not accurate and I think that’s one of the dangers that we have right now. We are pushing so many false narratives every day, we’re creating false perceptions about the President, and frankly, inhibiting his ability to succeed,” said Sanders. “I think America should want him to succeed. He is the President whether they voted for him or not, and I think that we have to get behind him.”
“We should be championing for his success, because his success is America’s success,” she added.

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.
