Joy Behar conceded Tuesday that she actually agreed with Fox News host Sean Hannity when it came to armed protesters.
Behar noted on ABC’s “The View” that “things are bad when even Sean Hannity is telling the crazy people to stop it.”
“Joy, things were weird. You found yourself agreeing with this guy,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said as she introduced a clip from Monday evening’s “Hannity.” (RELATED: Joy Behar Says A Justin Amash Run Will Hurt Trump, But Meghan McCain Isn’t Buying It)
“No one is a bigger defender of the Second Amendment than yours truly. Everyone has the right to protest and protect themselves and get the country open,” Hannity said, adding, “This, with the militia-look here and these long guns, uhh, no. Show of force is dangerous. That puts our police at risk, and by the way, your message will never be heard, whoever you people are. No one should be attempting to intimidate officials with a show of force, and God forbid something happens, then they’re gonna go after all of us law abiding 2nd Amendment people.”
“Joy, what do you make of this?” Goldberg asked.
“First of all, things are bad when even Sean Hannity is telling the crazy people to stop it. Just stop it,” Behar replied.
“Nobody was carrying a gun. Okay? That is not a protest. That is a terrorist action … I don’t say they’re terrorists, but they’re certainly intimidators. They’re trying to intimidate people with this,”Behar added, dialing back earlier comments when she had referred to armed protesters as “terrorists.”
“Radio silence on the right, by the way, about this. Besides Sean Hannity I haven’t heard anybody else say something like that,” she concluded.
