Ex-Democrat Congressman Vernon Jones reached his limit with Joy Behar and ABC after “The View” co-host made some astounding comments about black conservatives.
During a broadcast of the show earlier this week, Behar claimed Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, both black men, don’t understand African Americans.
“Tim Scott’s one of these guys who, you know, he’s like Clarence Thomas, black Republican who believes in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps rather than, to me, understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country and other minorities,” Behar said on the show.
“He doesn’t get it, neither does Clarence.
“And that’s why they’re Republicans.”
Vernon Jones said: “Queen bigot Joy Behar said Sen. Tim Scott and Justice Clarence Thomas do not know what it’s like to be black.
“What a racist liberal white supremacist.
“She should be removed from The View.
“I’m sick of her being the Blacks-pert.
“And @sunny and #WhoopiGoldberg sat there and without taking issue.
“Next she’s gonna say Black women don’t know what it’s like to be black.
“The View let her get away with a Black Face, now this.
“If she said something about trans, she would have been dumped.
“Joy is disgusting!
“ABC supports racism and targets conservative blacks especially!”

GOP Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) also fired back at Behar, calling her “ridiculous” and a “buffoon.”
“Joy Behar doesn’t understand that she is a buffoon,” Donalds said.
“She’s paid to spew these things.
“Nobody really pays attention to anything that she believes in or what she talks about.
“And this is all so that she sounds good on the Upper West Side, but the rest of America looks at her and says she is utterly ridiculous.”
Tim Scott took the high road saying:
“I believe in the Gospel.
“I believe Matthew 5:44 says ‘Love your enemies’ — but if you break in my house, I also believe in the Second Amendment.
“The fact of the matter is America is a story of evolution – a never told story of evolution in too many of our schools that are indoctrinating our kids instead of educating our kids.
“Every parent who wants a choice.
“Look to the Republican Party.
“Look to the GOP, but more importantly, look at Americans, African-Americans, Hispanic Americans – the majority of Americans all agree on school choice.
“I say, not on my watch. Let’s tell the whole story of America rising.
“My life disproves the lies of the radical left,” he said.
