WATCH: Joy Behar claims “I think we’ve been respectful to Melania”

Monday on “The View” co-host Joy Behar made the claim while defending Jill Biden that “I think we’ve been respectful to Melania.”

“Can I jump in here?” Behar asked “Yeah. I was going to say, you know, first of all, don’t call her kiddo. She’s not somebody you met on Tinder, okay? She’s the next first lady of the United States.”

“I think that we have been respectful to Melania, and we will be respectful to Jill,” she added.

However, Behar herself has not always spoke of Melania in positive terms. In fact, many times she failed to hide what appears to be a personal dislike for the First Lady.

During a May 2017 episode of the view, guest Chelsea Handler and Behar gossiped whether Melania would divorce President Trump.

Handler said “I think, like, if Melania, like if I have a fantasy, like I want Melania to just finally come out and divorce him, and she would be an American hero. We would embrace her if she said, listen. This guy is disgusting, and I know all his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.”

Joy Behar then asked “Wasn’t there a rumor if he didn’t win they were going to get a divorce? Don’t quote me. It’s a rumor.”

Handler said “Well you can quote me. I believe that to be true.”

Appearing on CNN in 2018, Joy Behar said to Van Jones of Melania “She is now enjoying the fruits of the American country.”

She continued “Her parents are now enjoying chain migration…. why shouldn’t she go along with it? She was in Slovenia doing nothing. I don’t know what she was doing. What was she doing there? OK, she was a model. Now she’s the first lady.”
