Joy Behar Takes the Bait on Trump-Russia Collusion Story, But What Followed Next is Amazing [VIDEO]

If there ever was a time when ABC’s Joy Behar jumped to conclusions, it is certainly now. One of ‘The View’ co-hosts was forced to apologize and retract a story regarding President Trump and ‘evidence’ of him colluding with Russia in light of the 2016 presidential election.

Last week, ABC’s Brian Ross released a story, stating that Robert Mueller busted Trump on communicating with Russia back when he was still running for president.

“[Flynn is prepared to testify, we are told by a confidante, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House,” Ross claimed on the air on Friday. “He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate Donald Trump, ordered him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”

Ross was actually horribly wrong in his statement since it was proven Trump spoke with Russia after he won the election, which points to no law violation or a cause for suspicion. Here is how Ross tried to mend the situation:

Ross’ narrative ultimately cost investors millions of dollars, while the stock market faced a 350 point drop on Friday.

Driven by Ross’ rhetoric, Joy Behar took the train going nowhere as well and showed up on The View ‘s latest episode proudly bragging about having caught Trump right in the act.

Here’s the video moment if you missed it Friday:

It wasn’t too long that many pointed to Behar’s obvious delusion as far as transparency is concerned, forcing her to apologize to the public for making assumptions.

“On Friday’s show, apparently I was guilty of premature evaluation. I hear they have a pill for that,” she seemed aloof, according to Fox News.

Shortly after, ABC News said the report “had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.”

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience,” the statement continued. “These are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday.”

“People are slamming this as fake news, I think it’s a mistake,” Behar added.

“I will say that fake news and what we did on Friday, that’s what I was being accused of being a part of. I don’t want to sit on a show where I feel like we’re giving fake news or acting irresponsibly.” McCain said.

It is only natural not to let the left get away with stories of this sort, especially since it puts America’s integrity into question.

    Surprise, surprise….Joy the idiot, shows nothing but disdain for the POTUS, than want’s to tell everyone it was “a simple mistake” that led her to get all giddy over FAKE NEWS, the only one with half a brain on the show is the RINO’s daughter, and she’s only working with half of what the rest of them have none of. Liberal gossip, is what this BS show should be called!

Last week, reports indicated Stefan Halper, a Cambridge professor and longtime aide to some of Washington’s most powerful figures, was outed as an FBI informant planted inside Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. The New York Post writes: Halper made his first overture when he met with Page at a British symposium. The two remained in regular contact for more than a year, meeting at Halper’s Virginia farm and in Washington, DC, as well as exchanging emails. The professor met with Trump campaign co-chair Sam Clovis in late August, offering his services as a foreign-policy adviser, The Washington Post reported Friday, without naming the academic. … Days later, Halper contacted Papadopoulos by e-mail. The professor offered the young and inexperienced campaign aide $3,000 and an all-expenses-paid trip to London, ostensibly to write a paper about energy in the eastern Mediterranean region. Here are a few fast facts about Halper’s history in politics. Got His Start in Nixon/Ford Years The Stanford and Oxford-educated Halper started his career in government in 1971 as a member of President Richard Nixon’s Domestic Policy Council. The foreign policy expert served as the Office of Management and Budget’s Assistant Director of Management and Evaluation Division between 1973-1974. Halper then served as an assistant to all three of President Gerald Ford’s Chief of Staffs — Alexander Haig, Donald Rumsfeld, and Dick Cheney — until 1977. Accused of Leading a Spy Ring Inside Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Campaign The Reagan-Bush presidential campaign hired Halper to serve as Director of Policy Coordination in 1980 and would later be embroiled in the Debategate affair, a scandal in which CIA operatives were accused of leaking the Carter campaign’s foreign policy positions to the Republican ticket. The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald reports: Four decades ago, Halper was responsible for a long-forgotten spying scandal involving the 1980 election, in which the Reagan campaign – using CIA officials managed by Halper, reportedly under the direction of former CIA Director and then-Vice-Presidential candidate George H.W. Bush – got caught running a spying operation from inside the Carter administration. The plot involved CIA operatives passing classified information about Carter’s foreign policy to Reagan campaign officials in order to ensure the Reagan campaign knew of any foreign policy decisions that Carter was considering. Halper also worked as Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Had a Stint as a Bank Executive In 1984, Halper was chairman of three financial institutions — National Bank of Northern Virginia, Palmer National Bank, and George Washington National Bank. White House official Oliver North wired loaned funds from the Palmer National Bank to a Swiss bank account, which were later used to aid the contras. Believed Hillary Clinton Would Be a Better Steward for U.S.-UK Relations In March 2016, Halper told Russia’s Sputnik News that he believed then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton would prove to be a steadier hand in preserving the “special relationship” enjoyed by the United States and Britain. “I believe Clinton would be best for US-UK relations and for relations with the European Union. Clinton is well-known, deeply experienced and predictable. US-UK relations will remain steady regardless of the winner although Clinton will be less disruptive over time,” Halper said.
