Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Joy Behar called President Donald Trump a “disgusting racist” while discussing his exchange with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang.
In a clip, Trump said, “Well, they’re losing their lives everywhere in the world. Maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me. Ask China that question. OK, when you ask them that question, you may get a very unusual answer. Yes, behind you, please.”
Jiang said, “Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?”
Behar said, “You know what, Whoopi, we all know now that he’s a racist. He’s a disgusting racist. We knew it when he attacked Mexicans. We knew it when he defended Charlottesville people. And we know it when he goes after China and he goes after a Chinese-American girl. He is a racist. He throws red meat to his base on a regular basis, and anybody who still supports this guy needs to look in the mirror and ask themselves if they are racist also. That’s all I have to say about him. I’ve had enough of him.”
Guest co-host Ana Navarro said, “Good for those two women for standing up. I think they’re doing us proud, and the question that he was being asked was not a challenging question. It was a normal question. It was a rational question. It was a logical question. If you don’t have what it takes to answer even the simplest of questions, really, you’re better off going on your tirades and tantrums on Twitter.”
