Joy Behar Trying To Explain Wearing Blackface Is Simply Ridiculous. Watch Below…

Looks like an old blackface video has finally caught up with liberal host Joy Behar.

The Wrap media editor Jon Levine shared the old video of “The View” from 2016 which showed the co-host trying to explain a Halloween costume she wore when she was younger.

Behar shared the picture of herself when she was 29 during a discussion about curly hair.

After the picture appeared, Raven-Symoné who was a co-host at the time asked her, “Joy, are you black?”

From Fox News:

“I was so cute,” Behar said.

“Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair.

“Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

This comes at a time when a scandal involving wearing blackface has embroiled Democrats in Virginia. Both the Governor and the Attorney General have admitted to wearing blackface at parties in the 1980s.

Comedians like Jimmy Kimmel have worn blackface in the past and faced no pushback for it.

Megyn Kelly spoke about people wearing blackface when she was a child and she was let go after it.

ABC News has not responded about what they think of the Joy Behar incident.

NBC’s Megyn Kelly looks like she is out at the network and the reason centers around a “blackface” statement she made.

Since then, she has apologized and not only did she say she was sorry, she did it with tears. However, that still wasn’t enough for the execs who have seemingly removed her from the LIVE show for the rest of this week.

The View’s Joy Behar dressed as an African-American woman back in the 70s and was proud to talk about her curly hair and skin tone that she worked on to make the look authentic.

Behar talked in adoration of trying to look the part of a ‘beautiful African woman,’ even down to the makeup for her skin. Kelly brought up dressing to look like Diana Ross during her discussion, and her panel threw her to the wolves as if she should have never brought it up.

We’ve seen a lot of white women dress up like black women and vice versa over the years. White woman tan while black women use fading cream to lighten their skin. NBC went overboard with this “blackface” thing, but I still think it was more about Kelly defending Judge Brett Kavanaugh over Christine Blasey Ford than anything.

In an attempt to make some sort of point, Joy kept saying: “That’s my hair! That’s my hair!” which, yeah, we get it. What’s your point, Joy?

Clearly she’s trying to draw some sort of similarity between her short curly haircut and an afro, which, nope never nah. Joy looks like a white lady with white lady hair. That’s about it.

Joy helpfully notes, after being asked by Raven-Symoné if she was wearing tanning lotion, that she was in fact wearing makeup “little bit darker than [her] skin.” Yikes mcyikes.

If the timing is correct, that would date this photo around 1971. I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016.

What do you think about Behar dressing up like a black woman for Halloween? Do you think she should be fired today from the view for what happened back in 1971? Do you think Megyn Kelly should be fired for thinking it’s ok to dress up like this for Halloween if she wanted to?

A long forgotten video clip from ABC's "The View" resurfaced on Wednesday that showed co-host Joy Behar trying to explain a Halloween costume from when she was younger.

The clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine. Behar was seen discussing a New York Times op-ed about the resurgence of curly hair during the show in 2016. Behar showed her colleagues and the audience a picture of herself with curly hair when she was 29 years old.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked, "Joy, are you black?"

"I was so cute," Behar said.

"Joy... are you my auntie, Joy?" Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a "beautiful African woman" and stressed that it was her actual hair.

"Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?" Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup "that was a little bit darker than my skin."

The video resurfaced as Democrats in Virginia face intense scrutiny over their use of blackface decades ago. On Friday, Governor Ralph Northam offered an apology after a photograph emerged on his medical school yearbook page that featured a man in blackface and another in a KKK robe. He reversed course the next day, claiming he wasn’t in that photo but did admit to wearing blackface when dressing up as Michael Jackson for a costume contest.

Democratic Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who had previously called on Northam to resign, released a statement Wednesday that he also wore blackface in college.

ABC News has not responded for comment.

Hey so, remember when Joy Behar dressed as a black lady for Halloween? No? Well, now you do.

During the “Hot Topics” segment on The View Friday, Joy brought up a recent New York Times op-ed about how naturally curly hair is making a comeback. (Unrelated side-eye to that little diddy.)

As a way of, I guess, proving that she has or had naturally curly hair, Joy dug up an old photo of her dressed as, in her words, “a beautiful African woman” when she was 29 years old.

In an attempt to make some sort of point, Joy kept saying: “That’s my hair! That’s my hair!” which, yeah, we get it. What’s your point, Joy?

Clearly she’s trying to draw some sort of similarity between her short curly haircut and an afro, which, nope never nah. Joy looks like a white lady with white lady hair. That’s about it.

Joy helpfully notes, after being asked by Raven-Symoné if she was wearing tanning lotion, that she was in fact wearing makeup “little bit darker than [her] skin.” Yikes mcyikes.

If the timing is correct, that would date this photo around 1971. I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016.

Someone should have suggested that no, Joy’s hair is not an afro and does not look like an afro and a printed toga does not an “African” costume make. Good thing there was a sensible black person on the panel to kick off that dialogue.

Oops, wait, sorry, there was just Raven-Symoné.

So, there you have it. Now you know.

Sarah Palin is hitting back at Hollywood goon Alyssa Milano. Milano joined the chorus of the ignorant and piled on the Covington kids.

Make no mistake the motive was to destroy these kids and harm Trump – Joy Behar admitted as such. Alyssa actually compared MAGA hats to the KKK.

Enter Sarah Palin. From People: In a scathing response on Instagram, Palin wrote that Milano was wrong to link supporters of President Donald Trump to the KKK’s history of violent bigotry.

Not so, said Palin, pointing to her children, who are of indigenous descent. She also singled out her youngest son, Trig, who has Down syndrome.

“Alyssa, did you not know white hoods represented hatred for minorities and ‘handicapped’ children and adults whom the hooded KKK and white supremacists deemed unworthy of life?” Palin, 54, wrote along with two photos of her with Trig.

She continued, “So… from your warped Hollywood perch are you including MAGA-wearing moms of Native American kids (like mine) AND ‘different’ children (like mine) in your intolerant, prejudiced, gag-inducing rhetoric?” (Palin’s husband has said he is an Alaska Native on his grandmother’s side, according to the New York Times.)

Milano, 46, originally tweeted on Sunday: “The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.”

Earlier today Nick Sandmann destroyed the false media narrative with the simple truth.

“Well, now, I wish I would’ve walked away. I didn’t want to be disrespectful to Mr. Phillips and walk away if he was trying to talk to me,” he said. “I was surrounded by a lot of people I didn’t know that had their phones out, had cameras, and I didn’t want to bump into anyone or seem like I was trying to do something.”

“People have judged me based off one expression, which I wasn’t smirking, but people have assumed that’s what I have,” he said. “And they’ve gone from there to titling me and labeling me as a racist person, someone that’s disrespectful to adults, which they’ve had to assume so many things to get there without consulting anyone that can give them the opposite story.”

“I see it as a smile, saying that this is the best you’re going to get out of me. You won’t get any further reaction of aggression. And I’m willing to stand here as long as you want to hit this drum in my face.”

“Our school was slandered by the African-Americans who had called us all sorts of things. And I think I was perfectly fine with standing there and not letting the hate that was directed at us continue.”

“I have the utmost respect for Mr. Phillips as another person that freely used his First Amendment right. And I want to thank him for his military service as well. And I’d certainly like to speak with him,” he added.

Let me be direct about this: You people are a bunch of hysterical ninnies, and it is time for you to grow the hell up.

You know who you are.

The Covington fiasco has proved to be a clarifying moment. And here is what has been made clear: Much of the American media is no longer engaged in journalism. It is engaged in opposition research and in what is sometimes known among political operatives as “black p.r.”—the sinister twin of ordinary public relations. As Joy Behar, as profoundly dim and tedious a person as American public life has to offer, forthrightly confessed: The hysteria and outright dishonesty surrounding the Covington students had nothing to do with them. It has to do with narrowly partisan, selfish, deeply stupid, entirely unpatriotic, childish, foot-stamping, fingers-in-the-ears, weeping, cooties-loathing, teary-eyed, tremulous, quavering, pansified, gormless, deceitful, dishonorable, and cynical politics of the lowest kind — the politics of Us and Them.

We’ve all seen how this goes, 10,000 times. Some character does — or at least is said to have done — something in the range between unseemly and horrifying, and he has some political attachment, however vague. Cynical political operatives and the low-minded partisans who enjoy being treated like idiots engage in what in normal times would forthrightly be regarded as a smear: “That mad bomber had pro-Trump posts on his Facebook page, ergo President Trump bears some kind of responsibility for this.”

Here are some of the idiots and idiotic institutions who engaged in that recently in the matter of Cesar Sayoc. Chris Truax in USA Today: “Trump bears moral responsibility for pipe bombs. Denying it just makes things worse.” Jonathan Chait, New York: “Bomber Cesar Sayoc is a By-product of Trump’s Party.” Even Rick Wilson debased himself, writing in The Daily Beast: “Of Course Donald Trump Inspired Cesar Sayoc’s Alleged Terrorism.” That’s a particularly asinine headline: For Trump’s culpability, it’s “of course,” while Sayoc’s crimes are “alleged.” That isn’t the kind of stupidity that happens by accident. These claims are pure intellectual dishonesty. They are smears, and there is no good-faith case to be made for them. All of these writers should be ashamed.

It is always easier to appreciate when the roles are reversed. Democrats know that there is a big difference between would-be mass assassin James T. Hodgkinson embracing Bernie Sanders, and Bernie Sanders embracing would-be mass assassin James T. Hodgkinson. The fact that Hodgkinson is a progressive doesn’t tell us anything about progressives.

And the fact that a couple of children in MAGA hats engaged in boorish behavior — which isn’t even a fact, as it turns out, but a lie constructed and wholesaled with malice aforethought — wouldn’t have told us one damn thing about Donald J. Trump, his administration, or his political supporters at large. The fact that we had a momentary national moral crisis over the (as is turns out, fictitious) actions of a couple of nobody teenagers is all the evidence anybody needs of the fundamentally hysterical and unserious times in which we live. In a sane world, nobody cares about whether a 16-year-old boy somewhere . . . smirked.

Everybody who has pretended like that smirk tells us something serious about the state of the world is a liar and a fraud. I don’t mean the people who were legitimately taken in by the deceit — especially those who have had the honor and self-respect to admit their errors and correct them — but those who willfully persist in the lie. I’m talking about you, Ruth Graham of Slate, still trying to justify by whatever pathetic means are available what everybody with any sense knows to have been an exercise in pure horses***. I’m talking about you, editors of the New York Times. You sorry specimens are poor excuses for journalists, which, of course, we already knew. What’s more relevant here is that you are bad citizens. Trafficking in lies and distortions because you think the guy in the White House is kind of gross is unworthy of adults with responsible positions in a free society that depends on honest and functional institutions.

As some of you may recall, I wrote a little book called The Case against Trump. I didn’t think much of him in 2016. I don’t think much of him now. But we aren’t three tweets away from the Holocaust. Nobody seriously believes that we are, unless they are insane. Sane people who insist that the United States in 2019 is something like Germany in the 1930s are liars. They don’t really believe it. They have an investment in hysteria.

Those of you who play along with that — who enjoy being lied to and manipulated — are pathetic in the literal sense of that word. What the hell is wrong with you?

Of course Alyssa Milano is an idiot for insisting that those stupid red hats are “the new white hood.” You know who is even more idiotic than Alyssa Milano? Anybody who gives the furry crack of a rat’s patootie what Alyssa Milano thinks about anything. She’s a moron at 500 yards and a lunatic at a thousand. You know it. If she happens to be a moron and a lunatic who is on your side, that doesn’t make her any less of a moron and a lunatic. And making common cause with morons and lunatics can backfire: Ask a conservative about Ted Nugent.

We all have our jobs to do in a republic. Newspaper reporters are supposed to cover what’s going on in the world. I don’t know what you call people who cover what’s going on on Twitter. I have a few ideas, but I don’t think I can print them here.

My own suspicion is that this moment of mass hysteria, like other hysterias before it, eventually must collapse under the weight of its own tediousness. But I cannot say with any confidence that I expect that to happen soon. And it will not happen at all until Americans start deciding to take on the difficult responsibilities of citizenship, which starts with acting like a goddamned grownup. Nicholas Sandmann is a 16-year-old kid — but the people who made this empty episode into a national crisis are not. They are grown adults, and answerable for their actions.

It’s time for them to start acting like it.

Abraham Lincoln, who endured harder times than any of you idiots are likely to see, insisted: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.” And you’re out there trying to get some obscure nobody fired from her job at a bank because her son was standing 20 feet from a guy who had a look on his face you don’t like? Grow up.

For God’s sake, do us all a favor and knock it off.

And who could possibly be more unhinged than Joy Behar, the Trump hating, anti-Christian bigot with a voice like a foghorn who presides over the snakepit of hate and ignorance that is ABC’s “The View” that has poisoned the minds of millions?

The comments by Behar, a staunch critic of the president, came after a viral video of Tlaib making the provocative comments at a MoveOn.org event Thursday night, hours after she was sworn in to Congress.

“People love you and you win,” Tlaib said in the video in which she does not name the president specifically. “And when your son looks at you and says ‘Momma, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘baby, they don’t.’ ”

“Because we’re going to go in there and impeach the motherf—er,” Tlaib added as the crowd erupted in cheers.

On Monday, we posted about a fiery clash on The View between Joy Behar and Meghan McCain which — even by the show’s normal standard for heated debate — could only be considered intense. According to a report, the real fireworks began after the show went to break — leading one of the hosts to threaten to quit.

The Daily Mail claims that Joy Behar continued to fume as the show cut to commercial on Monday, and said she would leave the show if “this shit doesn’t stop.”

“I can’t take this much more,” Behar reportedly said.

Behar took aim at McCain — whom she reportedly called an “entitled bitch.”

“Get this bitch under control!” Behar reportedly said. She added, “I’ve tolerated a lot of shit on this show but I’m at my wits’ end with this entitled bitch. Enough already! Enough already! I’m not playing nice any longer.”

In the on air portion of the clash, which can be viewed above, Behar can be seen shouting at McCain even after her microphone was shut off. The friction bubbled to the surface when Behar invoked President Donald Trump during a discussion of former President George H.W. Bush‘s legacy — over McCain’s objection.

“I’m not interested [in debating Trump].” McCain said.

“I don’t care what you’re interested in!” Behar shot back.

“Well I don’t care what you’re interested in!” McCain replied, before colleague Whoopi Goldberg threw to commercial.

And just like that…poof! Peter Strzok’s former FBI boss is about to walk off into the sunset with full taxpayer-funded retirement benefits, and without a care in the world.

The last man standing…

The enigma man, E.W. “Bill” Piestap is retiring from the FBI. Bill Priestap is the FBI Asst. Director in charge of all counterintelligence operations. Priestap was FBI Agent Peter Strzok’s boss; he was also at the epicenter of the story surrounding every action taken by the FBI in the Clinton investigation and the Trump campaign investigation.

Bill Priestap was copied on every email of consequence including the writing of the Clinton exoneration talking points delivered by FBI Director James Comey. Priestap was the central figure on the FBI side of both Clinton and Trump operations. “Bill” is mentioned in hundreds of text messages sent by Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

In short, Bill Priestap was everywhere – except where you would most likely expect to find him, in media discussion.

Joy Behar has a history of making controversial remarks in defense of her left-wing beliefs. Earlier this year, she mocked Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian beliefs by suggesting he had a “mental illness,” while declaring that Republicans have a “penchant for Nazis.” She has also attacked Fox News, describing it as a “sleaze factory.”

On Friday’s edition of The View, Behar responded to the controversy by saying that she would be happy to invite Rock on the show.

“All I can say is this bitch, and these bitches will be happy to have you on the show and have a beer,” she said.

Leftist Sunny Hostin admitted on Wednesday that she does not care about the poor treatment the Obama administration gave to migrants because she only cares about what the Trump administration is doing.

In a segment on ABC's "The View" talking about the recent incident where tear gas was used on migrants who threw rocks at U.S. Border Patrol agents, conservatives Abby Huntsman and Meghan McCain highlighted the media's hypocrisy in their coverage for largely ignoring worse actions from the Obama administration. NewsBusters reports:

Citing the National Review, Whoopi began by pointing out that the conservative outlet argued that when President Obama tear-gassed illegal immigrants crossing the border, no one made a fuss like they are doing now in the media. But co-host Joy Behar was reticent to believe that Obama did such a thing.

"Do they have a photo like that when Obama was in office?" Behar asked while showing a picture of a woman running from tear gas with her two kids.

"Homeland Security data does validate that, that it happened multiple times, more than once a month, in fact, during the Obama years," McCain responded.

Huntsman went even further, saying: "In that piece, it said over a period of four months in 2014 under the Obama years HHS allegedly placed a number of unaccompanied children into the hands of a ring of human traffickers, who forced them to work on egg farms in and around Ohio, leading to a federal and criminal indictment. According to the indictment, the minors victims were forced to work six and seven hours a week, 12 hours per day. These are the things we don’t talk about."

Hostin exploded.

"The last I checked President Obama is no longer in office," Hostin said, as she became visibly angry. "President Trump is in office!"

"And he's destroying the country!" Behar added.

"I don't care what Obama did!" Hostin continued. "I care what Trump is doing right here right now!"

Joy Behar threatened to quit ABC's "The View" Monday after a testy exchange with co-host Meghan McCain, saying she would leave the show if the "entitled bitch" was not pulled back into line, according to a report.

Behar, a 20-year veteran of the daytime talk program, allegedly launched into the expletive-laden rant after she and McCain clashed during a segment about former President George H.W. Bush's life that turned into a critique of President Trump's environmental policies.

"My God!" Behar said during the commercial break following the confrontation, according to the Daily Mail. "Get this bitch under control."

"If this shit doesn't stop, I'm quitting this damn show. I can't take this much more," Behar said, the outlet reported. "I've tolerated a lot of shit on this show but I'm at my wits' end with this entitled bitch. Enough already! Enough already! I'm not playing nice any longer."

McCain, an outspoken conservative voice on the program, has frequently gotten into fiery on-air exchanges with her colleagues since joining the cast last year. Monday's disagreement was sparked after McCain insisted that she did not want to discuss Trump as Behar was complaining about how the current president was working to "unravel" some of the environmental protections introduced by Bush when in 1990 he signed amendments to the Clean Air Act into law.

"I'm not interested in what you're interested in, I'm talking," Behar said before co-host Whoopi Goldberg cut to a commercial break.

But a source close to the show pushed back on the Daily Mail's report, particularly Behar's alleged use of expletives.

"Sometimes the conversations get more passionate and heated than others, but when they get up from behind the table they talk it out," the source said. "They are friends and they are friendly behind the scenes. That's the case with Meghan and Joy, and all the women. They are pros. They have a good working relationship."

Former President Obama took more veiled shots at his successor Monday night, suggesting that the reason the U.S. is not taking more direct action against climate change is because of “hate, anger, racism — mommy issues.”

Obama appeared at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago, where author Dave Eggers interviewed him about ways to mobilize Americans toward creating social change.

When the topic of global warming came up, Obama’s criticism was particularly pointed.

“The reason we don't” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism — mommy issues.”

The comments drew laughter from the audience.

“I mean, we — we are we are fraught with stuff,” he continued, “And — and so if that’s the case then the single most important thing that we have to invest in is not all — and look I’m a huge supporter of science and technological research and social science and, you know, evidence-based learning and all that good stuff. I’m — I’m — people call me Spock for a reason, I believe in reason and logic and all these enlightenment values, but the thing that really we have to invest in is people. We got to get people to figure out how they work together — in a — you know, how do we get people to work together in a cooperative, thoughtful, constructive way.The erstwhile commander-in-chief did not explain what meant by “mommy issues,” or how these related to countering climate change.”

“I was having a conversation with a friend, who was depressed about the current course of our country — it’s a conversation that happens a lot,” Obama said later [Video]. “I had to remind him that this is what happens. Societies are these incredibly complex, organic things that sometimes moves forward and sometimes takes a step back.”

“This is a heavy burden,” he said [Video]. “But what a joyous burden to have this grand adventure where you can literally remake the world right now because it badly needs remaking. If you could blindly choose when you wanted to be born, you’d choose now … Or — maybe two years ago.”

Before the election, Obama attacked Trump for “immigrant children … in pens.” He’s also mocked the Trump Administration over Robert Mueller’s indictments, boasting “nobody in my administration got indicted.” And in another campaign rally, he suggested Trump is “fanning” “forces of anger.”

Matthew Whitaker’s tenure as acting attorney general may only be able to be measured in hours, but he’s already made a huge impact in how asylum-seekers are processed at the southern border.

According to a new interim final rule from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, those who enter the country illegally and are captured will no longer be able to claim asylum and will instead be returned to their country of origin on an expedited basis.

“Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so,” Whitaker said in a joint statement with DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

“Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum.

“Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it. Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.”

TRENDING: Watch: Ignorant Joy Behar Doesn’t Know How Senate Elections Work, Humiliates Self on Nat’l TV

Translating that out of federalese, this is basically saying that those who cross into America illegally and then are captured cannot claim asylum as pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act — the same act that the president used to craft the travel ban, which was ultimately upheld by the Supreme Court.

That law holds that “(w)henever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

The only way to gain political asylum, therefore, is to present oneself at a port of entry to the United States.

The New York Times crystalized the arguments for and against the move in their article on the new rule.

“Lawyers for immigration advocacy organizations said they violated a founding principle of federal asylum: to judge each person’s asylum claim on its own merits. And the lawyers said federal and international law made it clear that the United States must provide immigrants the opportunity to claim asylum regardless of whether they entered the country legally or illegally,” the Thursday article read.

“Trump administration officials defended the new approach, saying the president is responding to statistics that show that most migrants who seek asylum are eventually denied — but not before many of them skip their court hearings and choose to illegally stay in the United States.”

That last part is generally true. Few asylum seekers are able to establish a credible fear based on political persecution in their home country, which is why their application is typically denied. If they do have a realistic claim, presenting themselves at a port of entry is the proper way of doing things.

As for the legality of that, Bill Hing, general counsel at the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, told Newsweek that, “U.S. and international law does not specify that you have to go to a certain port.”

Whether or not this stands is going to be a matter of considerable debate. Whether it specifies you have to go to a certain port or not, under American law, seems again like it would be subject to the Immigration and Nationality Act — although that will certainly be a matter for the courts.

As for international law, that and $35 will usually get you an oil change. While there are obviously certain international legal norms everyone is expected to follow, the unsecured southern border represents an especial challenge to the United States. The abuse of the asylum process by individuals who have chosen to broke the law to get into the country in the first place, thus placing a strain on a system that already struggles to deal with legitimate asylum claims, should be an overriding concern in this case.

The Trump administration has also said those illegally in the country could apply for two other smaller programs as opposed to asylum, which would technically satisfy our treaty obligations. Whether treaty signatories buy this, and whether it ends up meaning anything, again remains to be seen.

No matter how this shakes out, it’s a sign that Whitaker is putting his stamp on the office posthaste — even if one gets the idea that President Trump had more than a little to do with the formulation of this policy. Say what you will about that, but Sessions certainly wasn’t willing to take this step.

Upset over President Trump firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is organizing mass marches.

The protests are slated for today at 5 PM.

“It’s happening,” she wrote online. “This is a ‘break the glass in case of emergency’ plan to protect the Mueller investigation.”

“We knew this would happen at some point,” she added. “The day has arrived.”

Maddow posted the messages to her Twitter account, which has 9.54 million followers.

The marches are being sponsored by Indivisible.org, a liberal activist group made up of former congressional staffers.

The group is demanding Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker disclaim any authority over the Robert Mueller’s Russia probe:

Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel's Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller's boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice.

Maddow’s MSNBC colleague, Matt Miller, earlier Wednesday called for “taking the streets” in response to Sessions’ firing.

“This is a national emergency,” Miller said during an appearance on Deadline: White House. “I don’t think you can overstate the gravity of the situation. And it’s incumbent upon everyone in public life to respond to this like it’s an emergency. This isn’t like all of Trump’s other attempts to interfere with the investigation. He’s reached over and found the one person among dozens of political appointees at the Justice Department who has a preordained hostility, publicly stated hostility to the investigation. I think for people in Congress, they need to step up and object to this. I think people — the broad public, this is the time to maybe take to the streets and say this is not what you expect out of the government.”

Maddow shared a website where people can organize protests:

Maddow also retweeted a Boing Boing posted marketing the protests:

Maddow’s activism comes as Fox News’ Sean Hannity was recently criticized for appearing at a Trump rally.

UPDATE: Maddow has responded to Grabien News’ article. The MSNBC host says her tweeting about these marches is merely “reporting” on them, not encouraging participation:

The most recent example of ABC News’ apparent liberal bias appeared during Sunday’s “Good Morning America” show when co-anchor Dan Harris pondered why Republicans even have a chance in the midterm elections.

During a discussion about Trump’s approval rating with Bill Clinton spokesperson-turned ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Harris asked ”If President Trump is so unpopular, 40 percent in our new poll, which is historic low in this context, why is this not a blowout?”

Stephanopoulos explained to his colleague that “the economy is doing very, very well” and Republicans “appear to be engaged, ready to vote.” NewsBusters analyst Nicholas Fondacaro wrote that Harris “was perplexed by Trump’s strategy of sticking with the issues important to his base.”

Fondacaro continued: “On top of the network questioning why Republicans still had a fighting chance on Tuesday, national affairs correspondent Tom Llamas took to the set to hype House races Republicans were struggling in… while Llamas called out struggling Republicans by name for those races, he didn’t call out Democrats struggling in their Senate races.”

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that ABC News has “an unquestionable left-wing bias” that is visible in its coverage.

“Like far too many media outlets they have blurred the line between opinion and hard news journalism. Unfortunately, ABC’s blurring of these lines is exacerbated by the fact that they have almost no diversity of opinion among their network’s voices,” Barron said.

In fairness, ABC News hired former Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie as a political commentator – but the former Trump collaborator’s presence hasn’t silenced critics.

Esteemed media critics and DePauw University professor Jeffrey McCall told Fox News that “ABC decided years ago that it was going a certain direction when it hired George Stephanopoulos to do the work of a traditional journalist, as opposed to being a commentator or analyst.”

“ABC is welcome to do that, of course, but it does indicate a lean. The viewers who watch ABC surely know what they are getting and watch with that understanding,” McCall said.

Disney CEO Bob Iger has long been rumored to have political aspirations and recently was named "the most powerful person in entertainment” by The Hollywood Reporter. Both ESPN and ABC have been accused of having a liberal agenda under Iger and the Disney honcho admitted his sports network become overly political.

While ESPN has taken steps to back away from left-leaning politics, ABC continues to make showcase its agenda. ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd recently called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a “sexual predator” on Twitter, while “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir has also been accused of skipping pro-Trump news in favor of Disney promotional content and putting an emphasis on angles that aren't favorable to the president.

ABC News’ “The View” makes headlines on a regular basis as liberal co-hosts Sunny Hostin, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar frequently use over-the-topic rhetoric to condemn Trump and members of his administration. The daytime talk show even announced last week that anti-Trump pundit Ana Navarro would be a regular guest host.

“When Ana Navaro being hired by ‘The View’ is what passes as ideological diversity, you know you are in deep trouble,” Barron said.

Last year, then-ABC News reporter Brian Ross botched an "exclusive” report that sent the stock market tumbling when he reported incorrectly on live television that fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn would testify that Trump had ordered him to make contact with Russians about foreign policy. The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.

After ABC was forced to retract the report, ABC News President James Goldston said on a staff conference call that he’d never felt more “rage, disappointment and frustration” in his entire career. Ross was suspended for the debacle before being demoted and eventually leaving the network.

Back in 2016, ABC News anchor Martha Raddatz appeared to get choked up on Election Night when it became clear that Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton – although both Raddatz and ABC News denied that she was visibly upset.

Stephanopoulos’ ties to Clinton also became a source of embarrassment to ABC during the presidential campaign, when he was caught secretly giving money to the Clinton Foundation. He had to recuse himself from hosting any presidential debates.

ABC News did not respond to requests for comment.

Federal authorities are investigating a string of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats and CNN, and “The View” co-host said those threats were similar to heckling faced by Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials in public.

U.S. Secret Service agents intercepted possible explosive devices sent to former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama after a similar package was detonated near the home of philanthropist George Soros, and another forced the evacuation of CNN’s headquarters in New York City.

“I’ve been texting with my former colleagues at CNN, and they’re scared,” said co-host Sunny Hostin. “One former colleague said, ‘This is what happens when the president calls you the enemy of the people.’ I thought, my gosh, you know, the tone is coming from the top.”

Co-host Abby Huntsman urged caution in assigning a political motive to the bombs, saying there wasn’t enough evidence to make any such claims — but Joy Behar said she’s seen enough.

“Fox News hasn’t gotten a bomb yet,” Behar said. “I don’t want them to get a bomb, by the way.”

Behar said the Republican Party needs to push back harder against Trump’s provocations before someone was killed or injured.

“Every time he says things like the press is the enemy of the people, his entire party needs to stand up against him and say something,” Behar said. “Mitch McConnell, where is he? He’s the leader of this party.”

McCain broke in to say the Senate majority leader was already facing similar threats as the Clintons and Obamas — and so are “The View” panelists.

“He’s getting harassed and heckled when he goes out in public to have dinner with his wife,” she said. “So are we.”

“The View” is adding Republican strategist as a guest co-host one day a week, Variety has learned.

Navarro will fill in on “The View” every Friday, rounding out the Season 22 panel with Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, Sunny Hostin, and Abby Huntsman. Goldberg takes Fridays off as the moderator, which is why the show needs a sixth rotating cast member at the Hot Topics table.

According to sources, Navarro had been in talks to join “The View” as a full-time co-host in the fall, but those negotiations fell apart due to salary demands. In addition to her latest job, Navarro will continue as a contributor on CNN, talking about politics. Although she identifies as a Republican, Navarro has been critical of President Donald Trump’s policies and she voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

Ratings for Season 22 of “The View,” which was created by Barbara Walters in 1997, are up. The ABC talk show averaged 2.8 million viewers for the week of Oct. 22, beating out CBS’ “The Talk” (2.2 million viewers). That’s the biggest lead “The View” has had over “The Talk” in six years. In the coming weeks, the show has booked big guests from the political world, including Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and John Kasich.

Navarro is expected to announce her new position on “The View” on Friday morning’s taping of the show.

Several weeks after delaying the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh only to vote in the judge’s favor, Republican Sen. Jeff Flake on Tuesday admitted that he’s not actually sure who he believes: Kavanaugh or his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

“You know, she was very compelling,” Flake said during an interview on ABC’s The View, in response to being grilled over his eventual support for Kavanaugh after calling for a week-long delay to allow an FBI investigation into the sexual-misconduct allegations leveled against the judge.

The retiring Arizona senator continued: “[Kavanaugh] was very persuasive. I don’t know. I don’t know. I wish I had the certitude that some of my colleagues expressed. But I said on the [Senate] floor before that hearing, we’re likely to hear the hearing with as much doubt as certainty. And that’s how I felt afterwards.”

Co-host Joy Behar asked the conservative lawmaker why Kavanaugh was the only option and not another nominee previously included on Trump’s shortlist. Flake explained that a “mere allegation” was not sufficient evidence to disqualify Kavanaugh from serving on the Supreme Court.

“If the mere allegation with no corroboration is sufficient to disqualify someone, we’ve entered a new phase that we probably don’t want to enter,” Flake added.

During his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by three separate women, including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who said that, in the early '80s, when they were teenagers, he allegedly pinned her down on a bed at a house party and attempted to sexually assault her.

Following the FBI investigation, brought on by Flake’s request, Kavanaugh was confirmed in a 50-48 vote, despite widespread protests.

And when View co-host Sunny Hostin asked Flake, point-blank, whether he believed Ford, he delivered a stunning response.

“I don’t know,” Flake admitted.

“I don’t know if I believed him either.”

Whoopi Goldberg criticized Donald Trump Jr. Thursday on “The View,” saying that if he was concerned about his sons, he must think they are likely to assault someone. “You only worry about this for your child if you think your child has these tendencies,” she claimed.

“If you think your child is not someone who is assaulting people, it shouldn’t be a concern for you,” Goldberg continued.

Abby Huntsman jumped in then, defending Trump Jr.’s position by pointing out that, sometimes, innocent men are falsely accused.

“Not necessarily though, right?” Huntsman asked. “Isn’t that the point — in a not tactful way — he was trying to make? And I think [what] a lot of people are concerned about today is: you could be accused when you have been raised the right way — when you did nothing in that situation. We have countless … examples where that has happened.”

“Like who?” Joy Behar asked.

Hunstman responded immediately with, “Like the Duke lacrosse players, for example.”

Behar shrugged, “That’s one.”

Huntsman continued, explaining, “I grew up and I knew stories of that happening where I had a crazy friend in high school, and she would rally the girls around a guy she was dating, and we all hated him, and she was the one that needed serious help. It opens up the conversation to say evidence matters.”

ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar raged against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday, calling him a “coward,” “guilty,” and demanding that he take a lie detector test to “prove” his innocence.

The off-the-rails segment began with the panel discussing the overall situation with Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who claimed Kavanaugh could have “inadvertently killed” her during a party in the early 1980s. She alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her while she was wearing a bathing suit. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations and said he doesn’t even remember the party.

Lisa Banks, Ford’s lawyer, said on Tuesday night that her client will not accept Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley’s invitation to testify on Monday about the allegations. Conversely, Kavanaugh has accepted the invitation and will appear to testify. Grassley also cancelled Thursday’s committee confirmation hearing for Kavanaugh, and will allow him to testify on Monday about the allegations before moving forward.

Apparently believing that people are guilty before innocent, Behar slammed “old, white men” in the Senate Judiciary Committee who aren’t doing more to “hold Kavanaugh accountable,” who she said was “guilty.”

“They’re protecting a man who is probably guilty. If you’re not, Judge Kavanaugh, take the lie detector test. Prove it the way she did and the way Anita Hill did, that they were not lying. Let’s see that from you, or are you a coward?”

Co-host Sunny Hostin jumped in and demanded that the FBI take over the case and launch an investigation. Of course, Hostin failed to mention the FBI stated last week that it would not be opening an investigation into the claims, a sign to many there’s not enough evidence to warrant a probe.

Watch below:

There are serious issues with Behar smearing Kavanaugh as “guilty” and then demanding he take a lie detector test.

Kavanaugh strongly denies assaulting Ford and says he doesn’t even remember the party. Another friend who claims he was there has also indicated that what Ford has claimed never happened.

On top of that, Kavanaugh has agreed to testify on Monday about the allegations. Ford has stated that she will only consider testifying after law enforcement conducts an investigation. The FBI revealed last week that it would not be probing the claims. Ford refuses to testify, so what do Democrats want Republicans to do?

Sadly, this is how far liberals are going to attack Trump and stop Kavanaugh’s nomination. And now, Behar is calling Kavanaugh a “coward,” “guilty,”

and demanding that he take a lie detector test.

Why is he being smeared and labeled as guilty? He’s never been charged with anything and the FBI has already declined to open an investigation. Kavanaugh is set to testify on Monday, yet Ford refuses to show up and will not speak with lawmakers.

This entire ordeal shows how far liberals are willing to go to resist and oppose President Donald Trump.

In what may the most nauseating spectacle of the week, now-former Senator John McCain’s funeral has devolved into a ghoulish orgy of Trump bashing.

McCain’s body has spent time in the rotundas of the capitols of both his home state and Washington and today will be the final one that he spends above ground before he is laid to rest at the Naval Academy Cemetery on Sunday.

The contempt for Trump has not only driven millions to madness but has turned what should be somber events to mourn the dead into political events.

It was only yesterday when a thunderous Al Sharpton hijacked Aretha Franklin’s funeral service which devolved into an anti-Trump hatefest and the same thing has happened at McCain’s services this morning.

But who would have thought that it would be his own daughter to use the eulogy to make a political speech in which she blasted the president’s trademark “Make America Great Again” campaign promise in a classless tirade during which she only cheapened herself.

Meghan McCain: "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great."

— Ryan Saavedra ?? (@RealSaavedra) September 1, 2018

Via the Associated Press, “Meghan McCain’s eulogy: ‘America was always great'”:

John McCain’s daughter opened his memorial service, her voice rising from tearful to impassioned tribute, by posing her father’s legacy as a direct challenge to President Donald Trump.

Meghan McCain said her father was a “great man” and she encouraged others to live up to his example, setting a tone that echoed the senator’s own fighting spirit as services began Saturday at the Washington National Cathedral.

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served,” she said, her voice first choking back tears then raising to anger.

She said to applause, “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great.”

Trump is not on hand for the ceremony, after McCain’s family made clear he was not invited.

It’s both sad and disgusting but this is what happens when someone spends their days hanging around with bigots and America-haters like Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on “The View” where Ms. McCain works as the token “conservative” and has much in common with her co-hosts than she would admit.

How McCain’s daughter is able to foist herself off as some sort of sanctimonious moral conscience of America has always been laughable but those are the benefits of having a man who owed his entire career to the fawning media coverage that he received from the charlatans who masquerade as journalists. U

But in using his funeral to take potshots at the man that he loathed with a purple passion, Meghan McCain did her father proud and is well positioned to carry on his spite now that he is finally gone.

Here is her entire eulogy – if you can stomach it.

Following the complaint, an online petition has been created asking ABC to fire Whoopi Goldberg for assaulting the outspoken conservative judge.

Breitbart.com reports: Pirro recounted, “As I was exiting the stage, [Whoopi Goldberg] was already off, and she said, ‘F you. F you,’ and then I said, ‘Whoopi, I can’t believe it. I have fought for victims my whole life.’

She got in my face to the point where she was actually spitting at me and she said, ‘Get the f out of here. Get the f out of this building,’ and she’s pointing to the door. It was almost as though I was a dog, and she cursed me out and said, ‘get the f out of this building.’”

Pirro added, “I have to tell you guys, as a prosecutor and judge and a DA, I can go toe-to-toe with the best of them. Well, I have never been treated like this in my life. They invited me on The View. I didn’t ask to go on, and people said, ‘Don’t’ go on it.’ I said, ‘You know what? As far as I’m concerned, I can defend my book.’ I wrote it. I’ve got hundreds of footnotes. I’m going to go on. I like them. I don’t have a problem with them. They were gunning for me.”

Pirro cast Goldberg’s belligerence as part of a broad trend of widespread left-wing hostility towards conservatives. She said, “Americans need to understand that in 2018 they’ve got to stand up for what they think is right and what course is the best that this country is going to take, because the more and more the left starts approaching people in restaurants and abusing them in public spots, the more this becomes normal, the more we’re going to be victimized by it. … They can call us fascists all they want, but I have been shut down in my attempt to answer questions in a place where I was invited on. I mean, the whole thing is stunning to me.”

Pollak asked if any of The View‘s producers subsequently apologized for Goldberg’s hostility.

Pirro replied, “As the segment was abruptly ended, Meghan McCain mouthed to me, ‘I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.’ Honestly, I didn’t even know if I should get up from the table because I knew it wasn’t over, but the host just pushed the chair away and stormed off. It was almost surreal to me. As I walked out, people started coming around because they heard her cursing at me. At that point, I just walked it out as I was being thrown out. As I was walking out, she was following me cursing at me. .. All I can tell you is that I was shocked. I always like Whoopi Goldberg [and] Joy Behar. I co-hosted that show before, and I’m not afraid to talk to anybody. But this is a real problem in this country and it’s happening from the left to the right all the time.”

Pirro concluded, “I would never do that to anyone. I would never invite anyone on my show and then abuse them in an obscene way. That’s not the way we do it in this country. Liars, leakers, and liberals, that’s who the left is. They want socialism. They want communism. They want to shut us down and they call us fascists? Really? Enough of this.”

Jeanine Pirro said she was told to “get the f**k out of here” by ABC’s Whoopi Goldberg following her Thursday appearance as a guest on The View, recalling how she was berated on-air by the show’s most senior host.

Pirro, host of Fox News Channel’s Justice with Judge Jeanine and author of Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, joined Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with co-hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

Pirro recounted, “As I was exiting the stage, [Whoopi Goldberg] was already off, and she said, ‘F you. F you,’ and then I said, ‘Whoopi, I can’t believe it. I have fought for victims my whole life.’ She got in my face to the point where she was actually spitting at me and she said, ‘Get the f out of here.

Whoopi Goldberg and Jeanine Pirro got into an explosive argument backstage at “The View” on Thursday — after an intense on-the-air exchange got even more heated behind-the-scenes, sources exclusively tell Page Six.

The confrontation ended with liberal Goldberg allegedly shouting, “F–k you, get the f–k out!” at President Trump supporter and Fox News host Pirro.

During the screaming match, Pirro told Goldberg, “I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do,” we hear.

The trouble, sources told us, started before Pirro even went on-air to promote her new book, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy” — when Pirro arrived at “The View” to learn that anti-Trump CNN contributor Ana Navarro was filling in for Joy Behar.

“When Jeanine arrived on set she was looking for a fight and refusing to be on with Ana, demanding [Ana] not be in the segment,” an insider said. “[Pirro] was yelling at [‘The View’] executive producer and her staff like, ‘You need to handle this.’”

Another source told us that Pirro “was upset that Ana was there because she wasn’t told until the last minute. Ana is 24-7 anti-Trump. Jeanine wasn’t yelling, but you could tell they felt like the segment was being hijacked by shoving in an anti-Fox, anti-Trump person.”

Navaro did appear in Pirro’s segments, and things came to a head on the ABC show when the “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host accused left-wing Goldberg of having “Trump Derangement Syndrome.”

Goldberg responded of Trump, “I have never seen anybody whip up such hate.”

A shouting match started with Pirro declaring, “You know what’s horrible? When people who shouldn’t be here end up murdering the children of American citizens!” and Goldberg shot back, “What is horrible is when the president of the United States whips up people to beat the hell out of people … Say goodbye. I’m done!”

Goldberg left the stage, but the fireworks went off again with the cameras off: Backstage when the two crossed paths, a source told us, “Jeanine tried telling her she’s fought for victims her whole life.” That’s when “Whoopi got in her face and said that they’ve known each other a long time, but still, ‘F–k you, get the f–k out of this building.’ Jeanine looked stunned.”

Another source told us, “Jeanine could have walked by her. There was one more segment to do. She could have walked by her easily, she put her finger in her face and said, ‘I’ve done more for abused women than you will ever do’ and that’s when Whoopi said, ‘You and I have never had a problem,’ before everything else was said.”

We hear the ABC show’s producers and Goldberg have reached out to Pirro to have a conversation about what happened.

Reps declined to comment.

Goldberg apologized to the audience for the on-air blowup, saying, “You saw me do something I very rarely do … I very rarely lose my cool and I’m not proud of it. I don’t like it. But I also don’t like being accused of being hysterical because that is one of the things I try not to be on this show.”

“Raging Bull” and “Goodfellas” star Robert De Niro had a bit of a meltdown in front of cameras on Thursday afternoon following a court date in which the actor was trying to hash out the details of his impending divorce.

De Niro left the Manhattan courthouse to find that his driver was not there to pick him up.

The director called the driver and began yelling into his phone in front of cameras — while trying to shield his face with a newspaper.

“You’re not in front! You’re not where you dropped us off,” De Niro yelled into his phone, according to Page Six.

The New York Daily News captured part of the action outside the courthouse. De Niro was angry with the driver because he was mobbed by reporters and photographers the moment he left the building

“On Worth Street! Then you’d see all the photographers here! You’re not where you dropped us off!” De Niro yelled into his phone.

De Niro’s lawyer eventually convinced him to wait for his car inside the courthouse, away from cameras.

De Niro, 75, is currently going through a divorce from his wife Grace Hightower, 63.

The two were married for over 20 years. They share two children, son Elliot, 20, and daughter Helen, 6.

De Niro was previously married to Diahnne Abbot, with whom he has a son and a daughter.

In addition, the actor has twin sons with Toukie Smith.

De Niro can next be seen starring in “The Irishman,” in which he re-teams with director Martin Scorsese (“Goodfellas,” “Casino”) and actors Joe Pesci and Al Pacino.

“The Irishman” is expected to be released through Netflix before the end of the year.

He can also be seen in DC’s “Joker,” which will be released in October.
