Joy Behar and other hosts of “The View” defended controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) on Tuesday after the congresswoman reported being “attacked” at a restaurant by a woman and her adult son, according to the Wrap.
Greene, 48, tweeted about the alleged incident Monday, saying the pair were “self-righteous, insane, and completely out of control.”
“But not anymore,” Greene concluded. “Our country is gone.”
The ladies of “The View” seemed empathetic Tuesday.
“I have to say, I’m on Marjorie’s side for this one because I don’t believe that anybody should be going up to any of us — anybody in public — and harassing us,” Behar, 80, said.
And Behar was quick to point out that Greene needs to remember this sentiment considering her track record of slamming President Biden, including shouting “liar” at him during this month’s State of the Union address.
“She does this, and now it’s been done to her,” Behar noted. “And you know, I have to say that I think it’s deplorable that anybody would do anything like that, including her! And the person who did that to her.”
Host Sunny Hostin, 54, said while she was sympathetic to Greene’s plight, she would need more information about the alleged confrontation.
