For viewers of The View, it is hardly surprising to hear co-host Joy Behar expressing her far-left political views.
At one point during a recent interview with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), however, she turned up the sycophancy by gushing over the thought of her guest becoming president, as reported by Breitbart.
“Dreaming of the day”
The remark came during Wednesday’s broadcast of the daytime talk show.
“I’m dreaming of the day when see say ‘President Nancy Pelosi,'” Behar said upon introducing the guest on air.
That was just the beginning, though, and Behar continued planting her partisan positions in the minds of viewers throughout the interview.
The following day, Pelosi referenced a possible path for removing the president, which she seems to have initially began formulating during her conversation with the co-hosts of The View.
“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow — come here tomorrow,” she told reporters on Thursday. “We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”
“Something that should be viewed”
Given her speculation that Trump is in an “altered state” due to the treatment he has received for the coronavirus, Pelosi is expected to make the case that steroids have impacted his mental capabilities and could constitute sufficient cause to remove him from office under the narrow limitations outlined in the Constitution.
Of course, Democrats have previously signaled a desire to pursue the 25th Amendment as a way to achieve their ultimate goal of getting rid of the president. In response to one Trump tweet nearly two years ago, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) bluntly addressed the option: “25th Amendment?”
Pelosi offered her armchair diagnosis during her appearance on The View.
“I said yesterday to my colleagues, I said there are those who say that steroids had an impact on people’s thinking, I don’t know, but there are those health care providers who say that,” she said. “Also, if you have the coronavirus, it has an impact, as well. So the combination is something that should be viewed.”
While the actual probability that lawmakers will actually pursue 25th Amendment provisions remains low, the renewed rhetoric might be a paltry attempt to land an October surprise against the incumbent president.
