Last Tuesday, the odious Joy Behar of “The View” suggested without a shred of evidence that former President Donald Trump planned to sell the classified documents seized during the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
During Tuesday’s broadcast, after co-host Sunny Hostin sanctimoniously lectured people for calling the August 8 FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago a “raid,” Joy Behar jumped in saying the “main thing” she’s concerned about is Trump’s intentions.
Asking what Trump might have planned to do with the documents, Behar said with Donald Trump you always have to “follow the money.”
Admittedly, Joy Behar isn’t the only TV personality to make the unfounded claim that Trump planned to profit off of the documents in his possession. She’s just the stupidest TV personality to do it.
In late August the panel of talking mid-wits from “Morning Joe” also suggested Trump planned to “monetize” the documents, with one guest host, Mike Barnicle, asking what Saudi Arabia would pay for the documents Trump had in his possession.
Absent any hard facts, the American corporate media has no problem trafficking in speculation, innuendo, and outright lies.
It is ironic how the people who do that are typically the ones who shriek the loudest about “disinformation.”
