Unethical Quote Of The Month (With Bonus “What An Asshole!” Points): Joy Behar

“You know, you just, you plan a trip, you wanna go there. I’ve wanted to go to Italy for four years and I haven’t been able to make it because of the pandemic, and now this, you know?”

—“The View” co-host Joy Behar, explaining why she was upset about Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

The full exchange:

Co-host Sonny Hostin: “Estimates are 50,000 Ukrainians will be dead or wounded and this is going to start a refugee crisis in Europe,”  said. “We’re talking about 5 million people that are going to be displaced. It’s heartbreaking to hear what is going to happen.”

Behar: “Yeah, I’m scared of what’s gonna happen in Western Europe, too. You know, you just, you plan a trip, you wanna go there. I’ve wanted to go to Italy for four years and I haven’t been able to make it because of the pandemic, and now this, you know? It’s like, who’s gonna, what’s gonna happen there?”

Now, Behar is allegedly a comic, and maybe she’ll try the “It’s was just a joke!” excuse, but heavens to Betsy! Has there ever been a statement that more perfectly encapsulated the ugly, rich and privileged American narcissist celebrity’s “it’s all about me” attitude than the total lack of compassion and empathy in that clueless word-barf? It is signature significance for a terrible human being with dead ethics alarms; nobody who isn’t would say something similar out loud, much less on television. It’s like Ebenezer Scrooge saying that if the poor would rather die than go to a London work-house, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.

Behar is a moron and an asshole, and pretty much proves it every time she opens her mouth, but even I never suspected she was capable of this.

Now I almost wish I had been a loyal viewer of “The View” so I could write ABC in disgust and promise never to watch again.

Almost.

    • Comment of the day Brendan.

      Word on the street from those who know is that Behar is just another frustrated, sour, miserable, dry hole.
      I’m just the messenger.

  1. Jack, if you were a loyal viewer of “The View”, then almost by definition you’d be too stupid and ethically crippled to be offended by this…

  2. In terms of refugees – I think it’s worthy noting that *some cultures*, when they flee warzones seem to have 90% of the refugees be young men – while Ukraine has specifically told it’s population that no men will be allowed to leave.
