Possibly The View’s most notable, no-nothing, ultra-liberal cast member, Joy Behar sparred with White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the latter’s appearance on the show.
She offered false and sarcastic sympathy for Sanders when she said she felt sorry for the Press Secretary having to represent the President.
Behar, in characteristic form, presented a false fact when she insisted that both Politico and The New York Times provided evidence that President Trump lies 95 percent of the time.
Perhaps Behar didn’t do too well in math in school, as the report by Politico actually claimed that Trump’s claims are untrue – with the designations “mostly false”, “false”, or “pants on fire” – 78 percent of the time. When using only Politico’s stronger categories of untrue – the “false” and “pants on fire” designations – the number was untrue merely 60 percent of the time. This latter number represented the Politico calculation of 95 “false” or “pants on fire” claims out of 158 total claims Politico used in its calculations. Not 95 percent.
Sanders retorted that, “The problem with that, Joy, is that you are doing exactly what we are talking about and pushing a false narrative”.
Sanders went on, “I totally disagree with… what you’re saying, [that] only 5% of that is true. I know that is simply not accurate, and I think that one of the dangers that we have right now, is that we’re pushing so many false narratives every day, we’re creating false perceptions about the President, and frankly, inhibiting his ability to succeed”.
Sanders then brilliantly got to the crux of the issue, “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 it. We should be championing for his success. Because his success is America’s success. And that’s what we should all want.”
But of course, liberals like Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg do not want to see Donald Trump succeed, as they consider him an implacable enemy, as well as all who support his presidency, and seem to be part of the left’s self-described “Resistance”.
A nation that puts its citizens first, with all its citizens treated equally, and that pursues its security abroad, is simply the antithesis of their vision for the ideal U.S.A.
