The View Co-Host Joy Behar is no stranger to controversy as she and Whoopi Goldberg are known to be liberal firebrands on the show who frequently attack former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

On The View’s Thursday show, Behar stooped to a new low when she said that residents of East Palestine, Ohio ‘deserve’ the potentially deadly consequences of a train derailment that happened in the town earlier this month because they voted for Trump.

She claimed that Trump voters in Ohio deserve to suffer from poisoned drinking water and air because Trump supposedly supported the deregulation of the rail industry and opposed overreach by bureaucrats at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The shocking statement received widespread condemnation on social media as one user said that called Behar ‘psychotic’ and said that her hatred for Trump has corroded her ‘brain and soul’.

On Thursday’s episode of The View, co-host Joy Behar suggested that the residents of East Palestine, Ohio, who are reeling from the February 3 Norfolk Southern train derailment that released toxic chemicals into the area, got what they deserved after voting for Donald Trump, who “reduces all safety,” including in their hometown.

“I don’t know why they would ever vote for him,” Behar said. “For somebody, who, by the way, he placed someone with deep ties to the chemical industry in charge of the EPA’s Chemical Safety Office.” Behar looked directly at the camera, pointed, and added, “That’s who you voted for in that district. Donald Trump, who reduces all safety. He did.”

Behar had previously said, “it seems to me that the Republicans are obsessed with this notion of the free market and they don’t like a lot of regulations” and “We have to pay for regulation and safety standards.”
