Bill Maher told Behar she was his ally for agreeing with him that Democrats play much too nice. He said Democrats never go for the jugular.
"When they go low," Maher said. "We go high."
"No," Behar said. "When they go low, we should go lower."
Maher agreed as Van Jones displayed a face of disapproval. That enraged Behar.
"Van, listen," Behar shouted. "You are the first perpetrator of this. He wants the kumbaya. F$ck the kumbaya. People on that side are crazy. Don't you understand? They are crazy. You don't deal with white supremacists. I am not talking to him [Van Jones], I am talking to you [Bill Maher]."
"What happened to that gene in the Democrat's makeup," Maher asked. "It wasn't that way with Bobby Kennedy and John F. Kennedy. They were tough. They weren't this kind of 'too nice' Democrat."
Bill went on to say that he believes part of the problem is political correctness. Behar agreed.
Joy Behar recounted a time when she told John Kerry that he needed to be tough among other things. She said he said not to worry, he can handle it. Both Maher and Bahar pointed out that he didn't.
Behar spoke about another flaw in the Democratic narrative. She said Democrats need to get out of the weeds and speak in a simple manner, unlike CNN and MSNBC.
"Go right for the jugular," Behar said. "the way Trump does it. He is smart in that way."
"He is a terrific con man," Bill Maher said.
While I believe in civil discourse and engagement, there are times when one must display their inner boxer.
