ABC News star, Joy Behar, says Kim Jong Un, Putin has more & # 39; sane & # 39; that Trump

ABC News star Joy Behar caused an uproar on "The View" on Thursday when he said President Trump is more hostile than North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un or Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"We have reached a point in the world now where we have to trust Kim Jong Un and Putin's sanity over the president of the United States," Behar said, commenting on recent tweets sent by Trump threatening military action against Syria.

"That's where we are at," Behar said before praising a Russian official who condemned diplomacy through Twitter.

Co-host Sunny Hostin intervened, saying he does not believe that Trump is capable of compartmentalizing things "like a president should", and thus he gets easily agitated.

"Bill Clinton was famous for being able to compartmentalize," Behar replied.

Conservative anchor Meghan McCain disagreed, saying there's no way Trump could win because people would get angry regardless of whether or not he made threats on social media.

"I know it's kind of funny to laugh at this, but we're talking about genocide in Syria," McCain said, noting that he has a problem with his colleagues in invoking a "moral relativism between someone like Kim Jong Un and Putin and President Trump. "

The reliably liberal Behar joined in, "Do you think Kim Jong Un is less moral than Trump?"

"Oh, my God … chemist gassing children," McCain replied. "The last time I checked, the United States is not doing that to anyone."

Behar defended the North Korean dictator and said: "Kim Jong Un does not do that, what are you talking about?"

McCain said that although she often does not agree with Trump, anyone who compares him to evildoers Murderous dictators lose all the arguments in their eyes.

"What I'm saying is that I see both of them backed by war, and I see President Trump provoking war," Behar countered.

Behar has mocked Trump on a regular basis since the former real estate magnate joined the political world. She was recently forced to apologize after being criticized for mocking the Christian faith of Vice President Mike Pence. Their frequent anti-Trump outbreaks have even resulted in guard dogs questioning whether "The View" should be under ABC's news division.
