Joy Behar said Tuesday that no one was “changing their mind” with regard to former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial.
Behar weighed in on ABC’s “The View” just before the impeachment trial was set to begin in the Senate, saying that she believed Republican Senators such as Rand Paul (KY) and Lindsey Graham (SC) would remain loyal to Trump no matter what he did.

“Let’s talk about impeachment, really, what does this really, really mean, Joy? I’m going to start with you. What does it mean?” co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the segment.
“Okay, you know, no one’s changing their mind,” Behar replied. “These Republicans, particularly Rand Paul and Lindsey Graham, they wouldn’t vote against Donald Trump if he threw them off of a roof, literally threw them off a roof, they would be going down, down, yelling, ‘The wind, it was the wind.'”
Behar concluded that it was all a calculated effort to keep their seats in Congress, adding, “You know, there’s no way to get around this with these people, they do not want to go back to their other jobs. And that’s where they’re at. That’s all I have to say.”
Cohosts Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain commented on the imminent impeachment trial as well, with Hostin saying she hoped to see the requisite 17 Republicans vote to convict. McCain said her interest lay in the potential political fallout, as she noted that, traditionally, impeachments tended to backfire on the party that drove them.
