‘The View’ co-host Joy Behar compared Sen. Tim Scott to Clarence Thomas on Tuesday and argued they both don’t ‘get it.’

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and others including Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., blasted “The View” co-host Joy Behar on Tuesday after she claimed Scott “doesn’t get” racism while comparing him to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. 

“He’s one of these guys, like Clarence Thomas, Black Republican, who believes in pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, rather than understanding the systemic racism that African Americans face in this country and other minorities. He doesn’t get it. Neither does Clarence. That’s why they’re Republicans,” she said Tuesday during “The View.” 

Responding to a clip of Behar’s comments on Twitter, Scott said that he is the candidate the “radical Left fears the most,” echoing a statement he made during his 2024 campaign announcement. 

“When a Black conservative who believes in the future of this nation stands up to be counted, they lose their minds,” he said.

Congressman Donalds called out Behar over her comments as well and noted photos of “The View” host dressed up as a Black woman for Halloween, which resurfaced in 2019.

“Joy, dressing up as a Black woman for Halloween with dark paint on your face doesn’t magically make you Black or make you an expert on what it’s like to be Black. From one Black person to another White liberal who got a pass for wearing Black face, sit this one out,” he wrote in response to a clip of Behar. 

Other conservative commentators took issue with Behar’s remarks as well. 

“Attention black Americans: don’t even *think* about having a mind of your own or else this wealthy white lady will come for you,” Scott Jennings, a senior CNN commentator, wrote on Twitter in response to a clip of Behar’s remarks.

Scott officially launched his 2024 presidential campaign on Monday and referenced multiple instances of criticism from the left during his announcement speech. 

“I’m the candidate the far left fears the most,” Scott said. “When I cut your taxes, they called me a prop. When I re-funded the police, they called me a token. When I pushed back on President Biden, they even called me the n-word. I disrupt their narrative. I threaten their control. The truth of my life disrupts their lies!”

“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin also criticized Scott on Monday

“One of the issues that Tim Scott has is that he seems to think, ‘Because I made it, everyone can make it.’ Ignoring, again, the fact that he’s the exception and not the rule. And until he’s the rule, then he can stop talking about systemic racism,” Hostin said.

Goldberg said he had “Clarence Thomas syndrome.”

Scott told Fox News that Hostin had it backward when she claimed his story is “the exception, not the rule.”

“We have to ignore the far left by disproving their lies by our actions. Here’s the funny thing: The host, Sunny, she wants to be judged by the content of her character, not the color of her skin. The fact of the matter is America is a story of evolution — a never-told story of evolution in too many of our schools that are indoctrinating our kids instead of educating our kids,” he added.

WATCH: Joy Behar Admits To Wearing Blackface — Should She Be Fired?

Written by Wes Walker on February 7, 2019

And before you answer, keep in mind what it was that ended Megyn Kelly’s career. We didn’t make the rules. We just want to see them enforced equally. That way, when the OTHER side decides they don’t like being judged by them, we can ALL stop using them. 

Otherwise, it’s like what they’ve done with adultery. They sweep THEIR candidates’ indiscretions under the rug while making sure all the world hears every juicy rumor. Why? Because it’s easier to bully and shame an opponent into quitting — or at least putting him on the defensive — that it is to battle in the arena of ideas.

With stories about Blackfaced White Democrats in Virginia (and elsewhere) popping out of the woodwork almost with every passing day, suddenly everyone is talking about who wore Blackface and when.

Since the internet is forever, that can take us to some interesting places…

Like that time Joy Behar talked about dressing up as a black woman.

Here’s the photo of her in costume.

Weird that she was allowed to stick around when others were deep-sixed over less.

After all, look what happened to Megyn Kelly, who never even dressed up in the costume, but just talked about whether dressing up as a SPECIFIC individual was different than dressing up, as it were, as a ‘generic’ person of another race.

Even suggesting that someone ELSE dressing up as Diana Ross for Halloween — a star someone admired, not a person she was trying to parody — might be more acceptable than appearing to be of another race got her fired.

“‘Megyn Kelly Today’ is not returning,” according to an NBC statement. “Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other TODAY co-anchors.”

During her 9 a.m. hour of the Today show Tuesday, Kelly claimed that blackface was acceptable in the context of Halloween costumes, saying it was “OK when I was a kid as long as you were dressing like a character.” The backlash was swift and even drew criticism from longtime Today co-host Al Roker, who said, “While she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country because this is a history going back to the 1830s.”

During her Wednesday show, Kelly tried to make amends, saying, “I want to begin with two words: I’m sorry. I defended the idea [of blackface], saying that as long it was respectful and part of a Halloween costume, that it seemed OK. Well, I was wrong, and I am sorry.”

Despite the apology, NBC decided to call of Kelly’s show for the rest of the week, choosing instead to air reruns on Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, Kelly dropped her talent agency, CAA, over several issues, including concerns over conflicts of interest stemming from CAA’s representation of other NBC talent and executives. Kelly signed with a different agency, UTA, soon after, and hired entertainment attorney Bryan Freedman.

Since ‘admiring a singer’ was not an acceptable defense for Kelly defending someone ELSE wearing a racially insensitive costume, and her apology was not accepted, it seems strange that Virginia’s Governor Northam thinks it’s ok for HIM to have rubbed shoe polish on his face to perform as Michael Jackson. How could he possibly get a ‘pass’… unless he’s hoping he can skate by virtue of being a Democrat that the Media won’t touch.

Normally, he’d get EXACTLY that kind of a pass. But this time, even a complicit Media(D) would have trouble saving Northam’s bacon.

Since we’re busy throwing people under the bus here, can we talk about Joy Behar’s future?

She’s thrown TONS of people under the bus. She led the charge on getting Roseanne not only canceled but ‘erased’ from television history. It’s pulled from syndication over a careless tweet mocking Valeri Jarett. And she was no defender of Megyn Kelly’s innocence, either.

Why should such a vindictive graceless troll get treated differently than the political rivals she uses her power to destroy, especially when her behavior was a greater violation of the rules she ruthlessly enforces on others? Does Joy’s career need to pay the same price that Megyn Kelly’s did?
