“We all know that Trump is a liar and a thief,” Behar said to laughter and applause, noting that she and her leftist media comrades plan to give Biden a free pass.
“We know that. So it’s not that big a jump to say that he obstructed and he lied. We don’t think Biden is a liar and a thief, so we give him the benefit of the doubt.”
“That’s probably what’s going on,” she continued, adding that the Right-wing media will likely demonize Biden for his carrying of sensitive documents out of the White House.
“No matter what the truth of the matter is, they will spin it… the lie gets out there and people believe it just like that Donaldson person.”
Behar also took shots at Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., for his role in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives.
This is why Joy Reid & @MSNBC rarely bring republicans on their network. They are hit with facts & have no choice but to cut the guests off.

“It’s actually not true,” she repeated 12 times, interrupting Donalds as he tried to explain his claim that Social Security would soon be insolvent.
Reid also attempted, unsuccessfully, to get Donalds to commit to privatizing social security.
“What the Tea Party have proposed is privatizing social security which would actually subject social security to winds of the market,” she said.
“Just to be clear, you’re in favor of privatizing social security,” she pressed, ultimately unable to secure any commitment from the congressman.
