'They Do Nothing': Joy Behar Shuts Down Abby Huntsman's Claim That Republicans Take Election Interference 'Very Seriously'

The View co-host Joy Behar pushed back against new conservative co-host Abby Huntsman on Friday when Huntsman suggested it wasn't fair to suggest the entire administration of President Donald Trump didn't take election interference seriously.


The spat began after Behar said that conservatives "like" meddling that works to their advantage.

Huntsman suggested that Behar's characterization was unfair.

"There are people in the administration who take it very, very seriously," Huntsman said, offering no examples.

"Who should we talk about?" Behar shot back. "The Republican leadership? Mitch McConnell? Paul Ryan? They do nothing."

"They're an embarrassment to the country," Behar concluded.
