Joy Behar, alleged comedienne and current co-host of The View, believes Hillary Clinton actually won the election in 2016, and it took Meghan McCain to set her straight.
Behar, subscribing to the theory that ‘if I keep saying it, maybe it will come true,’ repeatedly asserted that Clinton was the true winner this past election, not President Trump.
The comments came during a discussion on Senator John McCain’s comments that the former First Lady made a mistake by writing a book of blame regarding the election.
“With all due respect to your father and to whom I like very much, I think he’s wrong,” Behar responded. “I think a woman’s place is in the resistance. The woman won the election.”
Hmm … I’m looking at the White House website right now and I’m not seeing Hillary’s name alongside the number 45.
When another host discussed the election loss, Behar chimed in again, “But she did win and I won’t give that up.”
That’s when Meghan jumped in and put the liberal host in her place, explaining basic concepts such as the electoral process in the United States.
“She didn’t win,” McCain responded, seemingly more aware of reality than her co-host.
“She did win,” Behar insisted for the third time.
That’s when McCain lit her up, asking Behar if it makes her feel better to pretend Clinton won.
“We don’t elect presidents of America on the popular vote,” McCain explained. “Does that make you feel good at night like when you’re so angry about [President Donald] Trump? Does that make you feel better? Because if I were you it would not make me feel better.”
The pair continued to argue following Behar’s admission that “no, it doesn’t” make her feel better to pretend Hillary is in the White House.
Dear delusional @JoyVBehar – If Clinton won the election, as you so ridiculously suggest, why isn’t she in the White House? You’re a fricken whiny mouthed idiot. SHE LOST. HE WON. https://t.co/UB8eIHzLag

It’s honestly quite embarrassing to watch Behar resort to living in a fantasy world to soften the blow of a Trump presidency.
Earlier this year, she pulled the same delusional stunt until former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld shut her down.

“Well, [Donald Trump] lost by more than three million votes in the popular vote,” Behar told Rumsfeld.
“What counts?” he retorted.
“Well the electoral vote counts,” Behar responded.
“I thought so.”
That’s the problem – Rumsfeld and McCain think, Behar finds that an unattainable attribute.
What would you say to Behar if she insisted Hillary won the election? Tell us below!
