ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar went off on President Trump on Wednesday for a recent exchange over nuclear weapons with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, implying that Trump could start a war to avoid sending his sons to prison.
Donald J. Trump
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

The dependably liberal Behar then took things a step farther.
“My feeling is that probably they are getting closer to him in the Mueller investigation, and that’s what this is about,” she said. “A lot of it. He’ll blow the whole world up so that his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail.”
She added, “If truly he’s playing a game of chicken with a dictator in North Korea, we really are in trouble. People are talking about the 25th amendment and they’re saying he’s not mentally fit to be the president. If you’re doing this, is there a mental fitness problem. We all know the ramifications of nuclear war.”
Even so-called conservative Meghan McCain joined in the anti-Trump frenzy, saying, “Not to bring too much levity to this, but when I first read the tweets last night I was like this is an intensely phallic thing to say. This seems to about who is bigger in what context or another. Which is why Nikki Haley needs to run for president. We need have a woman one way or the other taking over.”
Meghan McCain asked, “Do you want him impeached right this second?”
Behar answered, “I want him out of office immediately. I do. No matter how they do it. I don’t know how they’ll do it — maybe the 25th Amendment.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended Trump’s tweet on Wednesday: “I think, if the president can’t respond aggressively to an individual, like the leader of North Korea, that continues to threaten Americans, then that’s a dangerous place that we don’t want to go down.”
