“The View” co-host Joy Behar has tried to compare Democrat President Joe Biden to action movie star Liam Neeson’s character in the 2008 movie “Taken.”
Behar was talking about the killing of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a drone strike in Afghanistan this week during Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “The View.”
She then continued by making the bizarre comparison between Neeson and Biden.
During his speech Monday, Biden said:
“Justice has been delivered, and this terrorist leader is no more.
“People around the world no longer need to fear the vicious and determined killer.
“The United States continues to demonstrate our resolve and our capacity to defend the American people against those who seek to do us harm.
“We make it clear again tonight that no matter how long it takes, no matter where you hide if you are a threat to our people, the United States will find you and take you out.”
The co-hosts of “The View” discussed the operation and praised Biden as a hero for the move.
“He’s like Liam Neeson,” Behar gushed.
“I will find you, and I will kill you.”
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said:
“He took a lot of heat for pulling troops out of Afghanistan.
“I mean, does this not show that, you know, with drones, we apparently don’t need boots on the ground to target terrorists?”
Behar said, “I hope the irony is not lost on us that while Biden was taking out this terrorist from 9/11, Trump was playing golf with some of the with Saudi Arabians who are behind the 9/11 attack.
“I think that’s an important contrast to make.”
"A Democratic president did this. Not a Republican. Just like a democratic president took out Osama bin Laden."
Whoopi Goldberg seems to suggest Republicans aren't supporters of killing terrorist leaders.
