Joy Behar, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” said on Wednesday that she hopes that former President Donald Trump beats Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the 2024 Republican primary because Trump is the candidate that Democrats can beat.
Behar made the remarks after other co-hosts on the leftist show took shots at DeSantis, who has not announced whether or not he will seek the White House in 2024.
Cohost Alyssa Farah Griffin said that she believes that DeSantis “is the most over-hyped politician in America.”
“I want to see him sit down with a neutral interviewer like George Stephanopoulos and actually answer tough questions,” Griffin said. Stephanopoulos served as White House press secretary for former President Bill Clinton.
“DeSantis is what they call a dweeb,” Behar exclaimed. “And Trump is the one who needs to get the nomination because then the Democrats will win.”
Faux conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin claims "Ron DeSantis is the most over-hyped politician in America."
She claims his reelection was simply "good" and suggests he's never taken a shot a Trump. "I want to see him take a punch at Trump."

Conservative commentators weighed in online saying that Behar had said the quiet part out loud regarding what Democrats would like to see happen.
“These 🤡’s debase themselves every day,” commentator Dave Rubin said. “She wants DeSantis to sit down with a ‘neutral journalist like George Stephanopolous’, who was press Secretary for Bill Clinton and happens to work at the same network as her.”

“Also the brain melting way she tries to pretend DeSantis’s victory wasn’t a record setting landslide, and how Joy says the quiet part out loud … they actually want Trump … because DeSantis is the real threat,” he added.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh tweeted, “They openly admit that they want Trump because they think he’s easier to beat.”
Political commentator Stephen L. Miller tweeted, “Joy Behar putting on a masterclass of saying the quiet part out loud.”
