‘The View’ Hosts Cut Off Kim Klacik For Confronting Joy Behar Over Wearing ‘Blackface’

The liberal co-hosts on ABC’s “The View” cut off Maryland Republican congressional candidate Kim Klacik after the political newcomer confronted Joy Behar for once wearing blackface at a Halloween party.

“Is this Joy speaking?” Klacik asked as Behar was finishing a long rant attacking President Donald Trump over the media’s non-story regarding alleged revelations from Bob Woodward’s latest book. “The same Joy that paraded around in blackface not too long ago?”

“That’s not true,” Behar interrupted, despite her own program covering her costume controversy several years ago.

“The black community had my back!” Behar declared, going on to keep talking over Klacik.

“The black community has my back as well,” Klacik said.

“The black community has your back?!” co-host Sunny Hostin broke in. “The black community has your back?! The black community did not vote for you. What planet are you living on?”

The co-hosts kept rambling until Behar finally excused Klacik from the program while the single conservative on the show, Meghan McCain, who is routinely cut off on air pleaded for her colleagues to be respectful of their guest.

“That was very immature but thank you for having me,” Klacik finished as Behar ignored her and wrapped up the segment.

Donald Trump Jr. also confronted Behar live on air for the costume during a December appearance.

Klacik, a 38-year-old businesswoman rose to political prominence this year following the release of a viral campaign ad challenging the narrative of Black Lives Matter.

Klacik is running as the Republican nominee in a deep-blue district surrounding Maryland to unseat Democratic incumbent Rep. Kweisi Mfume who replaced deceased Rep. Elijah Cummings. No Republican has ever held the Maryland seat.
