On Tuesday morning’s episode of the ABC talk show “The View,” liberal cohost Joy Behar blasted Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), calling him a “negligent, homicidal sociopath” for his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Governor DeSantis is banning mask mandates even though Florida has more kids in the hospital than any other state. I mean, where’s the logic?” said cohost Whoopi Goldberg. “What am I missing here, Joy? What am I missing?”
Behar Sounds Off
“Nothing. Nothing,” Behar replied. “You’re just short of calling him a negligent, homicidal sociopath. Because that’s what he is. This guy — first of all, wasn’t he popular just a little while ago, silencing critics, no mandates for anything, covering up data, rescinding mask mandates?”
“And now, 10,000 new cases yesterday of COVID,” she added. “Eighty-seven percent increase in kids under 12. And then this sociopath, this dangerous criminal, he tells schools that they will rescind funding if they insist upon a mask mandate. So now the Broward County school board says you don’t have to wear a mask.”
“I mean, what is he doing? What is he doing?” Behar continued. “He’s risking the lives of children, children’s parents, their grandparents, anyone they may come in contact with so that he can appeal to his white supremacist base and continue in his career and get re-elected? I don’t know. Sunny, maybe you know whether this is negligent homicide. That’s what I call it.”
Behar’s leftwing cohost Sunny Hostin agreed with her, saying, “Well, I think it’s really difficult to hold public officials accountable for things like that, Joy and Whoopi because a lot of times you have qualified immunity in many instances.”

Behar Attacks The Unvaccinated
Last week, Behar lashed out at Americans who are not vaccinated against COVID-19, saying that they are taking away her “freedom to not get sick.”
“Why is their freedom more important than my freedom to not get sick? I don’t understand that idea that I am taking away their freedom. They are basically taking my freedom away by not getting vaccinated. Can I get an amen on that?”
