“The View” co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday backtracked on a statement that appeared to call for violence against Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.
Behar and co-host Sunny Hostin joined to criticize Fox’s top-rated host after they said he claimed there was no evidence of “white supremacy” during the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot.
“You have Tucker Carlson on television last night saying that there was no evidence of white supremacists at the riot. Well, the evidence was clear at the riot, at the insurrection. I was disgusted by what Tucker Carlson said. How dare he say there was no evidence of white supremacy there? There was evidence everywhere,” said Hostin, referring to Confederate flags and black Capitol Police officers who were subjected to racial slurs.
Behar said Carlson should be “tied up” and put in a corner somewhere “so we never hear from him again.”
“Tucker Carlson needs to be, you know, tied up and put in the corner somewhere so we never hear from him again,” said Behar before she started attacking Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the Daily Caller reported.
“I have a couple of questions. It’s, like, there’s no logic to what he’s saying, Ron. Why would liberals disguise themselves as Trump supporters to protest an election they just won? And according to him, Nancy Pelosi planned death threats against herself and then she broke into her own office to pose for selfies,” said Behar. “None of this makes sense. He’s making Marjorie Taylor Greene look normal, this guy.”
At the end of the segment, Behar walked back her remarks about Carlson, saying: “I do not mean to imply that anything harmful should happen to Tucker Carlson. I just want him to stop saying stupid things. That’s all. So let me just get that straight. I don’t want to be perceived as someone who is violent in any way. I’m not.”
