“The View” co-host Joy Behar has claimed that President Donald Trump “would’ve been in jail” if he had been in office in “other countries” such as Peru or Germany.
The co-hosts were discussing comments by Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) about the Jan. 6 rioters.
Speaking during an event Saturday, Greene said: “Then Jan. 6 happened.
“And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon here,” she said, mocking the Democrats and their Jan. 6 Committee.
“And I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won.
“Not to mention, it would’ve been armed.
“See that’s the whole joke, isn’t it?
“They say that whole thing was planned and I’m like, are you kidding me?
“A bunch of conservatives, second amendment supporters, went in the Capitol without guns, and they think that we organized that?”
Behar said in response to Greene’s comments:
“I was reading this weekend about other countries.
“In Peru, the President of Peru, this is so interesting to me.
“He tried to dissolve the government and seize power.
“They arrested him that day — that day.
“And in Germany this week, there was a group of people who tried to overthrow the government in Germany, they’ve all been arrested.
“One of them was from a noble family before the war, the big one, when he was in power and he was the nobility, and he was the aristocrat.
“Now he’s selling real estate, so he’s very annoyed.
“And he was one of those people trying to overthrow the government.
“In those countries, which are democracies, Trump would’ve been in jail three years ago,” Behar said.
