Liberal television host Joy Behar called-for civil unrest over the Trump administration’s undemocratic policies and regulations on Tuesday; saying the US is on a “slippery slope” towards “throwing democracy out the window” but failing to name any specific policies are laws that violate the constitution.
‘The View’ host was discussing the daily street protests that swept across Iran over the weekend, predictably turning her sights on President Trump and his tweets regarding the demonstrations.
“They told Donald Trump to stay out of it and not to tweet, of course he did. Telling him not too tweet is like telling a five-year-old not to eat the candy,” said Behar. “Just stay where you are in Mar-a-Lago, keep playing golf.”
“If –somehow- they are able to get themselves free from the chains that bind them, from this autocratic regime, it would be a huge game-changer the world over,” said guest Ana Navarro.
“I think that’s true in this country also, if we can get away from [Trump,]” added Joy. “We’re on a very slippery slope in this country towards throwing democracy out the window every single day… It’s a relative thing. We have other reasons to protest in the streets in this country.”
