The star of The View, Joy Behar, says that people really shouldn’t feel sorry for the First Lady Of the United States, Melania Trump after she mocked her in an interview, as well as her husband.
During an appearence on CNN’s Van Jones Show, the 75-year-old mainstay talked about Meghan McCain and her speech at her father, John’s funeral. As it was previously reported, John McCain passed away recently after a long battle with cancer.
Behar said that the president of the United States appears only to be concerned with himself. “We’ve lost that whole feeling of, you know, the great country, because of him, and I resent it,” Behar remarked.
When speaking about Melania, the star described, Trump supposedly dropped by her old HLN series to “hawk her jewelry.” During her time on the show, Behar explained, she insinuated that Melania and her husband were both birthers – referring to the media scandal during the Obama administration where people accused him of not being a real American citizen.
According to Joy, Melania said that Obama didn’t have the correct birth certificate of Hawaii. Additionally, Joy explained that Melania is “enjoying the fruits of the American country,” which according to her, not everyone gets to experience because of the decisions of her husband’s administration.
Joy said that she doesn’t know what Melania is doing here, considering she’s from Slovenia. However, as most media pundits fail to recognize, Trump’s criticism of immigration is mostly of the illegal kind.
His travel ban has only been enacted on seven different countries who were flagged as a threat to national security by the Obama administration, countries which, typically, don’t cooperate with American policy.
The widespread media mischaracterization of Donald Trump’s statements only increases political polarization. Perhaps, media personalities such as Joy Behar should actually listen to what others have to say.
