'F*** Your Kumbaya!': Joy Behar Isn't Here for Van Jones' Approach to Politics

Comedian and The View co-host Joy Behar had some choice words for Van Jones on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher.


Jones believes that Democrats needs to take the the high road with Republicans, echoing former First Lady Michelle Obama's mantra: "When they go low, we go high."

Behar says Democrats actually need to "go lower" and go "for the jugular."

She set her sights on Jones specifically.

“You’re the first perpetrator of this. He wants the kumbaya,” Beher said. “F*ck your kumbaya! These people on that side are crazy. Don’t you understand? They’re crazy! You don’t deal with white supremacists."

Watch the exchange below.
