Liberal TV personality Joy Behar said she would like to see Mitt Romney’s “house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down.” The comment came during an interview with the website Mediaite.
Behar lamented that Romney, along with Sarah Palin, has never come on to the talk show she co-hosts, “The View.”
Behar is going to be hosting a show on Al Gore’s network, CurrentTV. When asked if Romney would come on the show, she responded that she did not believe he would be willing.
The interviewer informed Behar that Romney did not think more public workers should be hired by local governments, and she responded: “Oh, less government? That is an idiotic statement. Can I just say that? I mean, I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. Who’s he going to call, the Mormon fire patrol?
“These statements are so stupid and they sound so ridiculous to the average American person,” she said in regard to conservative ideas.
Behar was asked what five people she would like to interview. She responded with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Abraham Lincoln, Mohandas K. Ghandi and Jesus — in that order.
“He [Obama] knows I’m a big fan,” she said. “I love Joe Biden very much.”
