Behar: Men Who Criticize Kamala ‘Fear’ ‘Funny Women,’ Are Bad in Bed

News & Politics

In addition to circling the wagons for President Biden earlier in the week, ABC’s The View spent part of Wednesday’s episode defending Vice President Kamala Harris from former President Trump’s jokes about her inappropriate laughing fits. According to co-host Joy Behar, such criticism was indicative of a man uncomfortable with Harris’s comedic mastery and that he was bad in bed.

After playing a soundbite of Trump ripping “Laughin’ Kamala,” Behar exclaimed: “Ugh. He’s so stupid!” She proceeded to rant how making funning fun of Harris’s (and Hillary Clinton’s) “cackling” was “sexist.”

Behar’s rambling quickly expanded to all men who criticized Harris’s inappropriate laughing fits. According to her, they had a “fear” of “funny women”:

What really ticks me off about him though is this “Laughing Kamala” remark. It’s such a sexist remark because a guy I was with over the weekend, a friend of mine. They said, “Kamala’s laugh annoys me.” Remember they said that about Hillary’s laugh, that she was cackling. And men, you know, they don’t like a funny woman. They’re afraid if you laugh or you make a joke, that maybe you’ll do that when they’re in bed with you. It’s like this fear. This fear of women’s laughing and comedy.

“Interesting. That’s very good psychotherapy,” staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) commended. “You’re on fire today,” faux-conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin declared.

Ironically, if they were right, Trump seemingly didn’t fear The View. Over two years ago, Behar led the cast in pitching a series of jokes about Republicans for Biden to use at the White House Correspondents Dinner that year, but even with an audience filled with their liberal fans, all the jokes bombed.

Further on Wednesday, according to Hostin, Trump’s quips about “Laughin’ Kamala” were a sign that he was afraid of the her and the Democratic ticket:

HOSTIN: Let’s face it, the reason he brings up Kamala, the vice president, is because he’s afraid of her. Because he knows what a strong candidate she is.

BEHAR: Yes, you smell fear when he comes up with a name for somebody.

HOSTIN: He understands how her popularity rating is going up, he understands how her approval rating is going up, and he understands as part of the Biden/Harris team that is going to be very difficult for him.

In reality, Harris had dropped out of the 2020 Democratic Party primary long before the Iowa caucuses, which didn’t corroborate Hostin’s claim that she was as “strong candidate.”

“But I think that we have sort of distorted what this election is really about,” Hostin bloviated. “And Whoopi has mentioned it many times. This is about saving democracy; Joe ran on trying to restore the soul of this country. This is really about making sure that we have a democracy to live in.”

In the following segment, moderator Whoopi Goldberg obliged Hostin’s praise by proclaiming, “There’s a lot at risk” this election cycle. “You know? And young people, old people, doesn’t matter. Your American citizenship is at risk. Your rights as a citizen are at risk!” she shouted without evidence.

DONALD TRUMP: Laughin’ Kamala.

[Cuts back to live]

JOY BEHAR: Ugh. He’s so stupid!

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: So the question is: is Biden’s performances like this going to help silence doubters? I mean, nothing — when people doubt, they just — they doubt. But and my question is: why is you-know-who still get a pass for these kind of insane rants? What is –

BEHAR: Cause his side doesn’t care, that’s why. Our side cares. There’s a conversation going on right now with Biden about Biden and his cognitive abilities, and their side doesn’t care if he has no cognitive abilities, apparently. Because all they want to do is retain power and keep him in office.

What really ticks me off about him though is this “Laughing Kamala” remark. It’s such a sexist remark because a guy I was with over the weekend, a friend of mine. They said, “Kamala’s laugh annoys me.” Remember they said that about Hillary’s laugh, that she was cackling. And men, you know, they don’t like a funny woman. They’re afraid if you laugh or you make a joke, that maybe you’ll do that when they’re in bed with you. It’s like this fear. This fear of women’s laughing and comedy.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Interesting.

BEHAR: Yes.

HOSTIN: That’s very good psychotherapy.

BEHAR: And what was that reference to the Washington Monument. Looks very much like a penis to me.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: You’re on fire today.

BEHAR: Just saying.

HOSTIN: I think it’s interesting. Let’s face it, the reason he brings up Kamala, the vice president, is because he’s afraid of her. Because he knows what a strong candidate she is.

BEHAR: Yes, you smell fear when he comes up with a name for somebody.

HOSTIN: He understands how her popularity rating is going up, he understands how her approval rating is going up, and he understands as part of the Biden/Harris team that is going to be very difficult for him.

But I think that we have sort of distorted what this election is really about. And Whoopi has mentioned it many times. This is about saving democracy; Joe ran on trying to restore the soul of this country. This is really about making sure that we have a democracy to live in.

GOLDBERG: I’m going to jump in here because there’s a lot at risk. There’s a lot at risk. You know? And young people, old people, doesn’t matter. Your American citizenship is at risk. Your rights as a citizen are at risk!

[Applause]

All those women who can get pregnant who might get pregnant who want something, your rights are at risk. All those men who maybe feel like this is my lover, this is my husband, this is my man, your rights are at risk. Doesn’t matter your age, your color. This is risk time! So if you sit back and say, “Well, you know, they just don’t get it.” It’s going to be your behind. It’s going to be your behind.
