ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar declared that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is “probably guilty” of decades-old sexual assault allegations and slammed “old,” “white men” in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
“These white men, old by the way, are not protecting women,” Behar said of congressional Republicans who stand by Kavanaugh. “They’re protecting a man who is probably guilty.”
California professor Christine Blasey Ford claimed Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than 35 years ago, but it’s been unclear if she’s willing to testify on Capitol Hill because she’s asked the FBI to investigate first – which would delay the hearing.
Behar – an outspoken liberal and regular critic of President Trump — urged Kavanaugh to take a lie detector test to prove his innocence.
“Let’s see that from you, or are you a coward?” Behar asked before claiming Republicans are “vehemently for overturning Roe V. Wade.”
Ford went public on Sunday, alleging that Kavanaugh forced himself onto her and covered her mouth in the 1980s, when Kavanaugh was 17 and she was 15. A growing number of Republican senators are saying it’s time move ahead to a vote if Ford doesn’t show up for Monday’s planned hearing.
Behar isn’t the first ABC News personality to weigh in on the controversy swirling around the vacant Supreme Court seat. Earlier this week, Behar’s colleague — ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd – was ridiculed after he called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas a “sexual predator” when attempting to smear Kavanaugh.
“It was despicable and outrageous what happened to Anita Hill more than 25 years ago, and a sexual predator was given a lifetime seat on the SC. Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself in 2018,” Dowd tweeted on Monday, obviously referring to a sexual assault allegation against Kavanaugh.
Justice Thomas, a conservative appointed to the bench by President George H.W. Bush, faced an accusation that he had sexually harassed attorney Anita Hill during his confirmation process back in 1991. Hill’s accusations resulted in last-minute hearings, but Thomas denied the claim and was confirmed. He has spent the past 27 years on the bench.
Last week Behar apologized after saying “God forbid” President Trump lives another 20 years during a conversation about the president’s recent comments about Hurricane Florence and his response to last year’s tragic storm in Puerto Rico.
“Unfortunately the real power is in the presidency… he’s the one who calls the shots,” the ABC star said. “This man will never apologize, if he lives another 20 years, God forbid, not God forbid.”

Earlier this year on the hard-left propaganda show “The View,” co-host Meghan McCain said if President Donald Trump fired special counsel Robert Mueller, there would be riots in Washington D.C. “at levels we haven’t seen.”
Several years ago, Whoopie even spewed her love of Communism to the world in the video immediately below.
Scroll down for Whoopie hoping for riots.
You’d think they’d have learned their lesson by now, but what can you expect from Democrats?
After all, the bitter old redhead on the show thinks she’s “too important to be criticized.”, and not long ago, McCain infuriated Alinsky-Democrats when she said “the Clintons are a cancer on the Democratic Party”, and even once, washed up former comedian, the uber-leftist Joy Behar did something a lot of other Democrats should do. She apologized, even if it was half-assed.
In short, you never know what kind of nonsense you’re going to hear on The View, and once again the Wildebeests of Propaganda, the crew of The View, top themselves with stupidity…
“We are sitting around pontificating about something that hasn’t happened, that’s going on a lot of unnamed sources so I don’t think we should get too far ahead of our skis. I do think everything you’re saying about what would happen if he does fires Mueller, I have said, Lindsey Graham has said it’s political suicide. I one hundred percent think there would be — I think there would actually be rioting in Washington, D.C. I think it would be at levels we haven’t seen.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg interjected,
“Now that would be fun to watch I have to say.”
“Yeah I mean — I think it would take levels that we can’t comprehend since the Nixon era, and I don’t think we should get too far ahead because it hasn’t happened.”
