Joy Behar was not impressed by President Donald Trump’s attempts to show the country how great he’s feeling after leaving Walter Reed Medical Center, where he was being treated for COVID-19.
“When I saw him running up those stairs, I thought, this guy thinks he’s Sylvester Stallone in ‘Rocky,’” Behar said on Monday’s episode of “The View,” singing the melody to the movie’s iconic theme song.
“Rocky was not loaded up with, let’s see, Remdesivir and Dexamethasone,” she continued. “This one just got out of the hospital with a million drugs in his system. By the way, he was shaking a little bit and he couldn’t breathe. I don’t think he looked very good.”
Behar added that despite what he says, she doesn’t think Trump has learned anything from his experience with the virus.
“He said he’s learned a lot — he has learned nothing. Not only is he a bad businessman, he’s a bad politician. Because what he should have said was, ‘I learned my lesson, I know how bad this is, I said it to Bob Woodward already, now I’m going to say it again – it’s a very dangerous, dangerous disease, I got it, you could get it, people could die from it, and I want you all to wear a mask and socially distance.’ He did not say that. So he keeps appealing to the same 39% that already is in the cult. Try to get some new cult members if you have a brain in your head.”
