“The View” host, Joy Behar, is once again facing criticism for her leftist stance on the show. She is getting blasted on social media for saying that Democrat President Joe Biden gets “the benefit of the doubt” over the recent scandal involving classified documents found in an office he used while serving as vice president.
Behar maintained that Biden should get the “benefit” because he is not a “liar and a thief” like former President Donald Trump.
The show dealt with the documents found last fall in Biden’s private office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington, D.C.
Some of the documents were labeled “top secret.” Behar’s show played a clip from CNN that showed Florida Republican U.S. Rep. Byron Donalds criticizing how the media is dealing with this story compared to when classified documents were found at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.
“Number one, what was [Biden] doing with classified information in his possession?” Donalds asked. “Number two, why did it take six years? I want to stress this for the American people: Joe Biden left the vice presidency in 2017.”
He went on to stress an even more important point and reminded the American people about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. Donalds wants to know why Trump was handled so differently than these Democratic leaders.
Whoopi Goldberg, another leftist host on the show said that Donalds needed to calm down and she stressed the differences in the stories.
Behar jumped on board with Goldberg’s defense, “I think what you just said is right, that there are differences in what happened. We all know that Trump is a liar and a thief, you know? We know that. We don’t think that Biden is a liar and a thief, so we give him the benefit of the doubt.”
The hypocrisy is palpable, watch:
Are we seriously supposed to let Biden get away with this, especially when his infractions are WORSE than that of Trump’s?
