Joy Behar of ABC’s “The View” admitted that many people on the left jumped to a conclusion on the viral video of an encounter between a Native American activists and students from Covington Catholic High School, “because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office.”

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg questioned, “So many people admitted they made snap judgments before all these other facts came in. But is it that we just instantly say that’s what it is based on what we see in the moment and then have to walk stuff back when it turns out we’re wrong? Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?”

Behar replied, “Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office. That’s why.”

Goldberg stated, “But what does that have to do —”

Behar added, “I think that’s the reason. I think the press jumps the gun a lot because we just have so much circumstantial evidence against this guy that we are basically hoping Cohen’s got the goods and what have you. It’s wishful thinking.”
