Joy Behar Attacks Supreme Court: ‘I Don’t Trust It! … I Don’t Trust Them!’

News & Politics

On Thursday, ABC’s The View’s Joy Behar responded to the recent Supreme Court decision to not restrict access to the abortion drug Mifepristone by attacking the institution itself, proclaiming: “I don’t trust it. But I don’t trust them!”

Surprisingly, co-host Sunny Hostin initiated the segment as she expressed that the Supreme Court’s decision “does restore a little bit of my faith in the court.” Her support for this was the fact that not everyone can “bring a case in front of the Supreme Court.” Hostin alluded to Justice Clarence Thomas opinion on the decision and concluded that this was “black-letter law and they stuck to it.”

Co-host Ana Navarro did not hesitate as she exclaimed, “Well I just have to wonder what flag Mrs. Alito is going to fly today.” The audience cheered and laughed like usual.

Later in the segment, Joy Behar noted that you can get this medication in the mail “just like women have been doing.” But she made it evident that even though decision was 9-0 in her favor, she did not approve of the Supreme Court’s decision as she interrupted Hostin and declared: “I don’t trust it. But I don’t trust them – if Donald Trump gets in, don’t trust this.”

Sarah Haines chimed in as she remarked “Some people don’t remember that justices have to prove their case. It’s not like math where you put in an answer. You have to show us how you got there through the letter of the law so it’s not as simple to have just corrupt judges running around in the Supreme Court.” She emphasized that this case decision was a reminder that judges “can’t just decide based on their beliefs.”

But Behar interjected with the same comment: “I don’t trust the whole thing. I don’t trust them.” Hostin, who even seemed to be surprised by her continued reaction, asked Behar “you don’t trust the whole thing?” Behar simply responded “No.” Navarro agreed with Behar as she asserted “Well neither do most Americans right now, unfortunately. Which is don’t trust the Supreme Court.”

Hostin, still a little confused by Behar’s comments, asked her if she found any comfort in this case decision. This is when Behar decided to lay it all out on the table as she concluded:

“I don’t trust the extreme religious right because they’re very adamant about this and they’re gonna do their best to change everything around and women need to be very vigilant. They want us in the kitchen with ten kids that we can’t feed. Just remember that.”

Navarro quickly contributed to Behar’s statement as she declared that “Women need to vote.”

SUNNY HOSTIN: It does restore a little of my faith in the court because the legal standard is: do you have standing to bring a case. Like can anybody bring a case in front of the Supreme Court? No. You have to have to prove that you have injuries resulting from it and so you’ve got a group of doctors and group of citizens and all of these people bring this challenge to the FDA and say, we don’t want this – this – pill.

And what Kavanaugh, he was the one that wrote it, said they do not — what’s called standing, in legalese and Justice Thomas in a concurring opinion and it’s only 25 pages, it was pretty — it’s really easy to go through. He says, “I join the court’s opinion in fault because it currently applies our precedents” — we didn’t know he stuck to those — “to conclude that the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine and other plaintiffs lacks standing.” That is black-letter law and they stuck to it.

ANA NAVARRO: Well I just have to wonder what flag Mrs. Alito is going to fly today.

[Laughing and applause]

JOY BEHAR: So you can get this medication in the mail now? Right?

SUNNY HOSTIN: You can get it in the mail —

BEHAR: — Just like women have been doing.

HOSTIN: And one thing I want to mention that I thought was very important – Kavanaugh says opponents of the pill have other avenues – as Alyssa just mentioned – to object. They can always take their concerns to the executive and legislative branches and seek greater regulatory or legislative restrictions on certain activities.

BEHAR: Translation?

SARAH HAINES: Please.

HOSTIN: So the translation is states’ rights. Translation, it is a little bit of a dog whistle to Congress. It is a little bit of a dog whistle to different governors, say, listen, if you in your 14 states want to keep abortion even from this pill being used then you need to legislate for it, and, quite frankly, that’s why we have three branches of government —

BEHAR: — I don’t trust it. But I don’t trust them –

ANA NAVARRO: And you shouldn’t because if —

BEHAR: — if Donald Trump gets in, don’t trust this.

NAVARRO: I mean what are — we’re kinda like celebrating that it was 9-0 but it was on standing which is like a — it’s a very — it’s an easy one.

[Crosstalk]

HOSTIN: It’s black and white law.

NAVARRO: If this had been — if these had been plaintiffs that had standing and the issue had been in front of the Supreme Court, God only knows.

HAINES: Yeah but it’s a reminder they can’t just decide based on their beliefs. Some people don’t remember that justices have to prove their case. It’s not like math where you put in an answer. You have to show us how you got there through the letter of the law so it’s not as simple to have just corrupt judges running around in the Supreme Court.

BEHAR: I don’t trust the whole thing. I don’t. I don’t trust them.

HOSTIN: You don’t trust the whole thing?

BEHAR: No.

HOSTIN: This doesn’t give you any —

BEHAR: I mean —

NAVARRO: Well neither do most Americans right now, unfortunately. Which is don’t trust the Supreme Court. Which I think is a terrible thing.

BEHAR: I don’t trust the courts.

HOSTIN: This decision though, doesn’t give you comfort?

BEHAR: I don’t trust the extreme religious right because they’re very adamant about this and they’re gonna do their best to change everything around and women need to be very vigilant. They want us in the kitchen with ten kids that we can’t feed. Just remember that.

NAVARRO: Women need to vote.

BEHAR: We’ll be right back.
