Watch: Joy Behar Tells Dems What They Need To Do To Get Into The White House
Joy (Joyless) Behar from 'The View' thinks that the only thing that failed candidate Beto O'Rourke did wrong was telling Americans he wanted their guns upfront. “They should not tell everything they’re going to do,” Behar said. “Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time.”
“That’s what people like me think you’re going to do,” co-host Meghan McCain swiftly responded.
They were discussing Beto's wise decision to step his extreme viewed self out of the race. He didn't stand a chance after a few of the outlandish comments he made about law-abiding gun owners. Even moderate Democrats had lost interest in his insane rhetoric.
“Beto, when my husband told me he got out of the race, I think he’s actually like a beta test for why going so national and being beloved by the media is so dangerous,” McCain said before noting that the former Texas lawmaker generated a massive war chest while running to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during the 2018 election cycle. Accordingly, he received more campaign contributions in one quarter than any Senate candidate in American history, ultimately ending up with approximately $80 million, according to DailyWire,
McCain also noted that O’Rourke drew national media attention and fawning coverage prior to his entry into the race, including comparisons to former President Barack Obama. O’Rourke subsequently hired a host of Obama’s previous staffers to work on his 2020 campaign.
O’Rourke’s demand to seize millions of firearms from law-abiding American citizens came as his presidential candidacy had been struggling to gain traction. Both his fundraising and polling numbers were relatively stagnant over the last two quarters despite relaunching his campaign for a third time in August. O’Rourke had not broken 5% support in any nationwide polls since April 2019, and when he ended his bid for the presidency, he was receiving less than 2.% of the vote on average, according to Real Clear Politics.
So he never stood a chance in the presidential race.
But apparently according to Behar, Dems need to stop telling Americans that they're coming for their guns. To get into office and just take them. How Nazi-Germany of her.
