The View’s Joy Behar ripped into President Trump after he told CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang, who is Chinese-American, to “ask China” about the rising coronavirus death toll, before abruptly ending his Monday press conference.
“He’s a disgusting racist!” said Behar. “I’ve had enough of him!”
Jiang had asked Trump why he has presented the United States’ coronavirus response as “a global competition” even as thousands of Americans die every day. “Maybe that’s a question you should ask China,” said the president.
When Jiang pushed back and asked why he was “saying that to [her], specifically,” Trump got flustered and promptly ended the press conference.
Trump later took to Twitter to call Jiang and two other female reporters the “enemy of the people.”
“We all know now that he’s a racist,” Behar said. “We knew it when he attacked Mexicans, we knew it when he defended Charlottesville people, and we know it when he goes after China and he goes after a Chines-American girl.”
“He is a racist! He throws red meat to his basis on a regular basis,” she continued. “Anybody who still supports this guy needs to look in the mirror and ask themselves if they are racist, also. That’s all I have to say about him!”
