(SNews) – The audience at ABC’s The View gasped loudly after co-host Joy Behar suggested the people in East Palestine, Ohio got what they deserved with the train derailment disaster because they voted for Trump.
“I don’t know why they would ever vote for him, for somebody who, by the way, he placed someone with deep ties to the chemical industry in charge of the EPA’s chemical safety office,” said Behar.
“That’s who you voted for in that district,” she added pointing directly into the camera. “Donald Trump, who reduces all safety.”
Nicholas Fondacaro, Associate Editor for The MRC and News Busters broke down what happened on The View:
Joy Behar implies that the people of East Palestine voted for Trump, so they got what they deserve.
