HELL FREEZES OVER: Joy Behar APOLOGIZES for Phony Trump Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.07.17

Liberal comedian Joy Behar did the unthinkable on Monday, apologizing for touting a false ABC news report that claimed President Trump asked former National Security Adviser to contact Russian officials while he was actively running for the presidency.

“On Friday’s show, apparently, I was guilty of premature evaluation,” said Behar. “Here’s what happened: ABC News reporter Brian Ross released a story claiming that when Trump was a candidate he told Michael Flynn to contact the Russians. Ross later corrected himself saying it was actually when Trump was President-elect.”

“Brian has been suspended for a month,” she added.

Her ‘View’ co-host read the official statement by NBC News, saying Ross had made a mistake and would be suspended for four weeks without pay.

“That’s ABC’s statement. Brian Ross has released a statement, saying ‘My job is to hold people accountable, and that’s why I agree with being held accountable myself,'” added Behar.

“I would say that this is not fake news, it’s a mistake. He didn’t deliberately put out a false piece of information, he made an error,” she deflected.

Watch Behar’s half-hearted apology.
