‘The View': Joy Behar Rips Donald Trump for Ted Cruz ‘Pussy’ Comment (Video)

“He’s like a stand-up insult comic, this guy. His campaign stops should have a two-drink minimum,” co-host says

The panelists on “The View” were not amused by Donald Trump’s reiteration of a comment made by a rally attendee who referred to Sen. Ted Cruz as a “pussy.”

Co-host Joy Behar said that such a roundabout way of insulting another candidate is a move Trump has employed before.

“He retweets things that are vile and he says, ‘I didn’t do it. I retweeted it,'” Behar said. “He’s like a stand-up insult comic, this guy. His campaign stops should have a two-drink minimum.”

“The more I see him, the less I want to see him as president,” Whoopi Goldberg said. “Because I just sort of feel like, you know, I think if you were to win, you would actually think that people would think this was OK.”

Goldberg went on to say that Trump’s appeal is due to pushback against political correctness.

“A lot of people think, ‘I should be able to say whatever I want to say,'” she said. “And you know, yeah, I know you feel that way, but this is what change is. And that’s why he appeals to them, because he can say it and get away with it and they feel like, ‘Oh, see? He’s saying it and nobody is doing anything.'”

However, co-host Candace Cameron-Bure called out her fellow panelists for what she viewed as a double-standard.

“How is this different when we talk about name calling when at the table we — and I don’t like that. I would like to be called … I’d rather be called uplifting words,” she said, without citing the particular word at which she took offense.

“Of course, I don’t take personal offense to it. I never have said, ‘Please don’t say that around me,’ but I don’t care to be — that women are referred to that word even in a friendship kind of way. I don’t understand it so I don’t see that it’s that different. It’s derogatory.”
