Behar: Covington Catholic Incident Happened Because "We're Desperate To Get Trump Out Of Office"


On Tuesday's edition of ABC's 'The View', co-host Joy Behar said the Covington Catholic incident at the Lincoln Memorial this weekend occurred because "we're desperate to get Trump out of office."

WHOOPI GOLDBERG, HOST: Many people admitted they made snap judgments before these other facts came in.

ABBY HUNTSMAN: Not everybody though.
