Moments ago Republican candidate Kim Klacik had a wild interview on “The View” that was highly contentious.
At one point after Behar scolds Klacik, saying she needs to admit Trump’s failures, Klacik asks Behar “Is this the Joy… who paraded around in Blackface not too long ago?”
Behar is infuriated and says it’s not true and claims the black community has her back. “They know that that was not blackface, that was an homage” Behar says. “The black community has my back” Klacik fires back.
At this point “The View” co-host Sunny Hostin mocks Klacik by saying “What planet are you living on?”
Hostin then makes weird whining sounds to drown Klacik out.
Klacik asks “Can I speak or are you just going to scream over me?”

This is what Kim Klacik was referring to as “Blackface.”
Judge for yourself.
The Associated Press, in a piece by Mark Kennedy February 7, 2019 writes “‘The View’ host Joy Behar under fire for use of blackface”
The segment where Behar is accused of wearing blackface comes from 2016. During the segment, Behar shows a 1970s photo of herself dressed up at a Halloween party with darkened skin. Behar then says she had dressed as a “beautiful African woman.”
More from Klacik on “The View.”
“President Trump has shown nothing but… the opposite of racism,” congressional candidate @kimKBaltimore says.
