ANALYSIS – On the day Russian forces brutally invaded Ukraine, leftist TV mouthpiece Joy Behar complained that the war might derail her lavish Italian vacation plans. This provoked a serious online backlash against “The View” co-host.
Barstool Sports writer Kevin Clancy, slammed liberal ‘Karen’ Behar with snark on Twitter for her callous selfishness:
The true horror of the worldwide pandemic and Russia invading Ukraine? Joy Behar hasn’t been able to take her trip to Italy. Thoughts and Prayers for Joy. We hope she makes it through this tragedy.
What’s the story?
On Thursday, the show’s left-wing panel began discussing the escalating war with several of the panelists worrying about the casualties and the Ukrainian people.
As The Blaze reported, co-host Sunny Hostin was rightfully concerned for the many Ukrainians who might end up injured or dead due to the war. Hostin said:
What I also thought about was the fact that estimates are 50,000 Ukrainians will be dead or wounded and that this is going to start a humanitarian crisis, a refugee crisis in Europe. We’re talking about 5 million people that are going to be displaced. It’s heartbreaking to hear what is going to happen.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg agreed, adding that the conflict was “so disheartening.” She continued by saying that “The people in Russia, they don’t want this war. [Putin] wants it because he’s trying to hold on.”
So, what did the cold and clueless Behar think of Putin’s deadly, unprovoked war of aggression? Not much about geopolitics, or death or destruction. She was instead very concerned that her long-awaited trip to Italy might be derailed.
The Blaze quoted ‘no-Joy’ Behar as saying:
Well, I’m scared of what’s going to happen in Western Europe, too. You know, you plan a trip, you want to go there. [I wanted] to go to Italy for four years. I haven’t been able to make it because of the pandemic — and now this. It’s like, what’s going to happen there, too?
And the internet did not like it. One Twitter user, Sarara, said it best about ‘joyless’ Behar:
Can you even imagine being so privileged, so removed from reality, so far up your own colon that you’d respond to a massive humanitarian crisis by complaining about your hypothetical vacation being disrupted? Seriously, what the hell @JoyVBehar?
