The View's Joy Behar Trashes Fox News' Tomi Lahren for Ranting About Immigrants: 'What Are Her Skills?'

“The View” co-host Joy Behar on Monday slammed Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren after she complained that immigrants are coming into the country with “low skills” and “low education.”

Lahren on Saturday defended comments made by chief of staff John Kelly, who last week claimed immigrants don’t “assimilate” into the United States.

“When did the perception of immigrants go from people trying to find their American dream to isolated freeloaders?” co-host Whoopi Goldberg asked. “We all come from immigrants, including you, Tomi Lahren.” 

In response to the Fox News personality’s rant, Behar zeroed in on Lahren’s own skills and education.

“I have a question, she talks about low skill: What are her skills? Does anyone know?” Behar asked.
