Joy Behar calls Kellyanne Conway ‘delusional’ to her face: Trump’s ‘rhetoric is off the wall’
Joy Behar, host of ABC’s The View, told Trump Kellyanne Conway she was “delusional” on Wednesday after the campaign manager downplayed Donald Trump’s “cavalier” comments about using nuclear weapons.
“Your guy, Donald Trump, he’s very cavalier about using nuclear weapons,” Behar noted. “Aren’t you petrified? You have four children. That scares me more than any other stupid thing he has said.”
“I’m concerned for everyone’s children,” Conway replied before pivoting to President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
“You’re not answering the question,” Behar pointed out. “A lot of people believe [the Iran deal] will prevent nuclear war… But that’s not my question, my question is that his rhetoric is off the wall on this topic.”
“No, it’s not actually,” the campaign manager stated. “Donald Trump is winning.”
“No, the nuclear thing,” Behar interrupted. “He doesn’t mean it? What do you think?”
“Here’s what I think,” Conway replied. “As commander-in-chief, he will not strike a deal with Iran.”
“Is his rhetoric reckless?” Behar exclaimed. “What’s the point of not using them if you have them, he said. What kind of talk is that?”
“He doesn’t mean that he’s going to go and use them,” Conway insisted.
“I like you,” Behar remarked. “But I think, right here, you’re being delusional.”
“I’ll tell you what scares me,” Conway quipped. “The fact that Hillary Clinton always puts Hillary Clinton first. It scares me.”
