Wednesday might have been “the saddest day in the history of the White House since the British burned it to the ground in 1914,” according to Joy Behar and the women of “The View.”
The panel unloaded on Kid Rock, Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent’s visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, after the trio posed while smirking in front of Hillary Clinton’s portrait.
After Behar compared their visit to the Burning of Washington, the rest of the panel dove in with their own comments.
“What was so offensive to me was Sarah Palin said that she brought them because Jesus wasn’t available, so she’s sort of comparing these folks with Jesus,” said Sunny Hostin. “The other thing that was interesting, remember when President Obama had Common the rapper and the poet come in to celebrate poetry in the White House? Sarah Palin tweeted, ‘The judgement is just so lacking of class and decency and all that’s good about America with an invite like this.’ Really? Because Ted Nugent called our former president a ‘subhuman mongrel.’
“You’re in the White House, bring a little class with you,” added Sara Haines.
“I do agree there has to be a certain sense of reverence, but I do think there’s selective outrage and I think free speech is free speech,” Paula Faris chimed in.
Fellow conservative Jedediah Bila said their actions didn’t do anything to help her own cause.
“If you’re making political arguments against the Obama administration or for the Trump administration, it undermines what you’re saying when you do stuff like this,” she explained. “If you’re out there and you’re also hurting people like me or conservatives out there who are arguing for free market systems, for policy and then you see representatives supposedly ‘of the right’ making a mockery of a picture of Hillary Clinton, it undermines my ability to do my job.”
Behar went on to call the group “sore winners.”
