Host of ‘The View’ Wonders if Fighting Over Trump Is Foreplay for Kellyanne and George Conway

Joy Behar got a little racy on The View Wednesday morning.

The hosts were discussing the ongoing saga of Kellyanne and George Conway and the latter’s war of words with the former’s boss, President Trump. George has long been a critic of Trump. But his arguments with the president on Twitter in recent days have been particularly harsh, with the well-known conservative lawyer suggesting the president has a mental health disorder and Trump firing back that George Conway is “a wack job.”

Kellyanne had discussed the ongoing battle with Maria Bartiromo on the Fox Business Network on Wednesday morning. This led the women of The View to talk about the weird and uncomfortable nature of playing out this disagreement in public, which naturally leads to speculation about the state of their marriage, and to wonder about the effect of it on the couple’s four children.

Then Behar decided to lighten the mood by wondering at the possibility that the Conways are “getting off on this.”

“What!” one of her co-hosts exclaimed off-camera.

Behar responded, “All that fighting and then at night she’s like, ‘He has a narcissistic personality, yes, yes!'”

In case anyone missed her point, she threw her head back and flung her hands in the air. Then, amid the groans from her co-hosts and the audience, she rocked back in her chair while crying, “No collusion! Yes!”

Ms. Behar, please. Any children not in school might be watching.
