“I’m only saying this because Alec Baldwin is a target for Republicans. They cannot stand him, OK? I’m just saying”
Joy Behar of ‘The View’ falsely claimed on the air on Friday that the DA who is prosecuting Alec Baldwin for the ‘Rust’ shooting is a Republican.
Even if that were true, why should it matter? It matters to Joy because she is a typical leftist. Everything must be politicized and used for leverage. Alec Baldwin is a high-profile Trump hater, so Behar sees him as one of the good guys.
FOX News reports:
Joy Behar suggests charging Alec Baldwin in ‘Rust’ shooting was political: He’s ‘a target for Republicans’
ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested Friday that actor Alec Baldwin was criminally charged over the accidental on-set killing of a cinematographer because of his liberal politics.
During Friday’s episode of the daytime talk show, Behar was unsure whether Baldwin deserved being charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and claimed that the person who indicted him is a “big Republican.”
“The DA who is indicting him — or whatever the legal term is right now — she’s a big Republican. I’m only saying this because Alec Baldwin is a target for Republicans. They cannot stand him, OK? I’m just saying,” Behar said.

She is not a Republican.
The DA is a Democrat

Later in the broadcast, Behar offered a flippant apology for getting it wrong.
Behar defended Baldwin earlier in the show, dismissing criticism of him as a producer on the movie, claiming he was only a “creative” producer. She cited her own history in film to claim that an actor can only think about one thing on a set, and it’s apparently not safety.
“As a person who has been in a couple of movies, all you’re thinking of is your part when you’re an actor,” she said. You’re not worried — I was not worried that my brassiere is going to fall off me or whatever. Somebody else has to worry about that.”
Carmack-Altwies actually a Democrat. Behar corrected herself later in the show and said she got the district attorney mixed up with Andrea Reeb who assisted in the Baldwin investigation as a special prosecutor. She now serves in the New Mexico House of Representatives and is a Republican.
“It’s the special prosecutor who’s now the Republican politician in New Mexico and not the current DA. I get them mixed up sometimes. So sue me,” she said.
I don’t know if it has always been this way, but ‘The View’ has become one of the most politically toxic, garbage shows on television. It’s also a consistent source of misinformation.
