“Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister.
I’ll go along with the “idiot” part, regarding Joy Behar, but I wouldn’t say she’s particularly “useful.”
Sam Dorman of Fox News reported that, “Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, got into a testy exchange with “The View” co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday [during a show in October of 2019] as the 2020 candidate confronted Behar over her claim that she was a ‘useful idiot’ for the Russians.”
This, of course, stemmed from Hillary Clinton’s outrageous claim that Tulsi Gabbard is being “groomed” as an “asset” by the Russians.
We now know that Gabbard is accusing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of deliberately spreading false accusations that Gabbard is a Russian asset in a lawsuit seeking upwards of $50 million in damages.
Good for you, Tulsi!
Hit her where it hurts most…, in her ill-gotten bank account!
And Joy Behar, of course, didn’t waste any time regurgitating and promoting Hillary’s idiocy.
She may regret parroting Hillary in the end. If Tulsi is successful in her suit against Clinton The View and Behar may be next!
Oh, be still my heart!
‘“Some of you have accused me of being a traitor to my country, a Russian asset, a Trojan horse, or a “useful idiot” I think was the term that you used, [which basically means that I am naive or lack intelligence].” Gabbard told Behar.”
‘“Well, useful,’ Behar said. ‘But that’s a Russian term, they use that,’ she added.”
So Joy Behar is implying that her feelings that she is an “idiot” still stand.
Joy Behar is also seemingly implying that she is some sort of an expert regarding the Russians and the Russian language.
Neither of which is true, of course.
She, Joy Behar, is the real idiot here.
“After Gabbard defended herself, Behar cited compliments of Gabbard that she saw as objectionable.”
‘“Franklin Graham finds you refreshing. He doesn’t find me refreshing. Richard Spencer, the white nationalist leader, says he could vote for you,’ she said.”
Franklin Graham notwithstanding, who on God’s green Earth could ever say they find you, Joy Behar, “refreshing?!”
“Gabbard laughed and responded: ‘This is why I’m here — because you and other people continue to spread these innuendos that have nothing to do with who I am.’”
“She went on to accuse Behar of doubling down on ‘baseless accusations’ that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton appeared to make about Gabbard. Clinton previously claimed that Gabbard was being ‘groomed’ by the Russians to be a third-party candidate and was an ‘asset’ of the Kremlin.”
We have all come to realize that it was Hillary Clinton who became an “asset of the Kremlin,” regarding policy, favors, and the transfer of U.S. uranium to the Russians.
‘“I’m a soldier — because of the attacks on 9/11,’ Gabbard said. ‘I enlisted in the military to go after and defeat and destroy the evil that visited us on that day. I’ve served now for over 16 years. I deployed twice to the Middle East during the height of the war where every single day I saw firsthand the terribly high human cost. It’s why I ran for Congress.’”
Matt Wilstein of The Daily Beast website says, “The 2020 Democratic candidate [Tulsi Gabbard] lashed out at ‘The View’ host for echoing Hillary Clinton: ‘That is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color.’”
Wilstein echoes that, “In an attempt to ‘set the record straight,’ Gabbard defended herself as a ‘patriot’ and a ‘strong and intelligent woman of color’ who has ‘dedicated almost my entire adult life to protecting the safety, security and the freedom of all Americans in this country.’”
“Over two segments, Behar and Gabbard went at it over everything from her endorsements from white nationalists to her regular appearances on Fox News. After the show replayed Clinton’s comments, Gabbard said, ‘It’s offensive to me as a soldier, as an American, as a member of Congress, as a veteran, and frankly as a woman, to be so demeaned in such a way.’”
“When Gabbard reiterated her attacks on Hillary Clinton as a ‘warmonger,’ Behar asked, ‘What’s your evidence of that?’ Gabbard shot back, ‘Are you serious?’”
“Things got even more heated between the two women after a break when Behar suggested that Gabbard might be an ‘unwitting’ asset of Russia, ‘not that that means you’re stupid, but people can be used.’”
‘“That’s exactly what that means though,’ Gabbard replied. ‘Let me start with how offensive it is to say that I’m a witting or unwitting asset of a foreign country, working against the interests of my country, a country that I am willing to lay my life down for. So if you are saying it’s not deliberately, then you are implying that I am too stupid and too naive and lack the intelligence to know what I am doing. And that is extremely offensive to me and to every woman of color.’”
Let me respond by asking, WHO THE HELL DOES JOY BEHAR THINK SHE IS?!
Where does Joy Behar get off questioning Tulsi Gabbard’s patriotism?
Where does Joy Behar get off questioning Tulsi Gabbard’s integrity?
Where does Joy Behar get off questioning Tulsi Gabbard’s intelligence?
How Joy Behar is allowed to sit there and accuse an American hero, like Tulsi Gabbard, of treason, is way, way, way beyond me.
Joy Behar should be ashamed of herself.
ABC should be ashamed of itself.
And Joy Behar should be out of a job and pursuing a different line of work.
Like I said, Behar may regret parroting Hillary in the end, and if Tulsi is successful in her suit against Clinton, The View and Behar may be next!
Let the games, and the lawsuits, begin!
