'This Is Not a MAGA Rally!': Joy Behar Barks at Audience After They Clap for Don Jr.

"The View" host Joy Behar snapped at the audience during Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle's appearance on the show when they clapped in support of a point Trump made.

Trump was defending his decision to quote tweet a Breitbart story that contained the alleged name of the Ukraine whistleblower, who sparked the impeachment inquiry into his father, President Donald Trump. Trump said he did not regret sending the tweet.

"I don’t regret doing it. No, I don't think I should have to forego my First Amendment rights. It's out there. I read in an article. I've been reading it for a week. I saw it on the Drudge Report. Like this is not some secret. But then to say, 'Because it’s Donald Trump, and he’s an outspoken guy.' Why was there no outrage when the Drudge Report, which is a major website, probably the largest aggregator of media news, he puts it to it there, and crickets? No problem with that," he said.

When the audience clapped after Trump Jr. made his comment, Behar turned to the audience and said, "Listen, this isn’t a MAGA rally, okay? Calm down."

During the same episode, Trump said there is hypocrisy in outrage over whistleblowers because CBS has fired the former ABC News employee who the network believes leaked video of anchor Amy Robach venting her frustration that ABC "quashed" a story about convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein three years ago. 

Robach said in the video their story would have implicated former President Bill Clinton and the British Royal family.

"ABC is right now chasing down a whistleblower about all of the Epstein stuff because those stories were killed. So if we’re going to have the conversation about the outrage about whistleblowers. You work with CBS to oust the whistleblower to come up with a story. That's kind of shady," he said.
