Joy Behar Celebrates White Nationalist’s Opposition to Trump

ABC's The View cohost Joy Behar on Wednesday celebrated white nationalist Richard Spencer opposing President Donald Trump because of the president's actions against Iran.

"You were saying what's some good news. This is a tiny thing that I noticed," Behar said. "You remember Richard Spencer? He's basically the organizer of Unite the Right, the white nationalist group that was marching in Charlottesville. He was all in for Trump. Not anymore."

Behar read Spencer's tweet renouncing his prior support for Trump in reaction to Trump's decision to eliminate Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani.

"Wow," Behar said, as the audience applauded. "That's big, that's interesting."

"Do you know why?" cohost Abby Huntsman asked.

"It's like I said yesterday, Trump ran on not invading and not being a warmonger," Behar said. "These people, they're the ones who are going to go."

Soleimani led the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps which trained, funded, and armed Iran-sympathetic terrorist groups in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, and around the Middle East, killing thousands, including hundreds of Americans.
