Joy Behar turned the observation of MLK Day into an attack on President Donald Trump during Monday’s opening segment of ABC’s “The View.”
Whoopi Goldberg opened the show with a question about how far America had come with regard to racial division, and Behar trotted out two fake news stories in order to pin the blame on Trump.
“We began with Dr. King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech but a lot of people are wondering if we’re close to realizing that dream since last week’s Democratic debate didn’t have a single person of color on the stage,” Goldberg began. “Does this concern you?”
Behar immediately turned on Trump, first falsely claiming that he had “created” the birther rumors about former President Barack Obama and then adding in the debunked claim that he had been referring to the white supremacists in Charlottesville when he said there were “good people on both sides.”
