“The View’s” Liberal TV host Joy Behar said that late-night comedians and others who did not discuss the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal should not be attacked. She commented that GOP supporters and conservatives shouldn’t attack “important” comedians because they’re “on the right side of things.”
As the co-hosts on ‘The View’ were talking about the media going after late-night hosts who continue to go after conservatives but did not discuss anything after Weinstein’s accusers came forward.
“Last week, everyone was saying the late night hosts didn’t mention the Weinstein scandal,” said Sunny Hostin. “But you know they were always making jokes about Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly. SNL took a hit for not saying anything. Now you have SNL doing something. You have James Corden doing something, and now it’s, ‘Oh, it’s in poor taste, it’s too soon.’”
“Why?” asked Behar. “Rose McGowan particularly singled-out Corden. I really don’t think that it’s appropriate to attack comedians. I mean, we’re on the right side of things.”
“Also, the comedians are there to say the emperor has no clothes,” Joy added. “We’re important people right now. So, I don’t know why attack comedians.”
