“The View” co-host Joy Behar left her liberal audience stunned when she defended Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) on the show.
Behar was responding after Greene said she was “attacked” by “insane” people, as Slay News reported.
Greene said on social media: “I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son.
“They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.
“They are self righteous, insane, and completely out of control.
“I was sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons.
“People used to respect others even if they had different views.
“But not anymore. Our country is gone.”

Behar shocked the world by declaring that she supports Greene on the issue.
“I have to say I’m on Marjorie’s side on this one,” Behar said.
“I don’t believe that anybody should be going up to any of us in public and and harassing us and that goes for you too, Marjorie.
“She does this and now it’s been done to her.
“I have to say I think it’s deplorable that anybody would do anything like that, including her and the person who did that to her,” she said.
Co-host Sunny Hostin wasn’t so supportive though.
“She’s this professional troller,” Hostin said of Greene.
“She was disrespectful to the president of the United States during the State of the Union.
“She heckles people all the time.
“I need more information.”
“Let’s just take her word for it in this case,” Behar said.
“I can’t do that,” Hostin said.
