Joy Behar Jokes ‘Body Snatchers Have Gotten to Maria Bartiromo’ After Trump Interview (Video)

”I mean, what the hell happened to her?“ asks ”The View“ co-host

“The View” co-host Joy Behar hopped on the bandwagon of fierce Maria Bartiromo critics Monday, both puzzled and disturbed by the Fox News anchor’s interview with President Trump in which she let his baseless claims of a rigged election and voter fraud go unchallenged.

“First of all, can we just say that the body snatchers have gotten to Maria Bartiromo?” Behar jokingly asked.

She was referring to, of course, the 1993 film “The Body Snatchers,” in which people at an Alabama military base start to be replaced in the middle of the night by perfect clones that grow out of mysterious pods. The only difference between the real person and their clone is that the latter shows no emotion.

“I mean, what the hell happened to her?” Behar added.

Whoopi Goldberg chimed in: “She was a great financial woman and now I don’t know who she is.”

Goldberg also aired some of the audio from Trump’s interview with Bartiromo, which began with Bartiromo throwing a question to the president about election fraud and telling him “the facts are on your side.” Trump then went so far as to suggest that the FBI and the Department of Justice may have been involved in what he believes was a “rigged election.”

“This is total fraud, and how the FBI and the Department of Justice —  I don’t know maybe they’re involved — but how people are allowed to get away with this stuff is unbelievable,” Trump said in part but then went on at length.

Bartiromo’s response to his accusations was not to ask what evidence existed but rather to say, “This is disgusting, and we cannot allow America’s election to be corrupted.”

But Whoopi Goldberg had the last word.

“Let’s not get into what’s disgusting here, please,” she said. “I’m sick of this.”
