The View’s Joy Behar surprised her audience by offering support for Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she said she was attacked while dining at a restaurant Monday night.
Greene, in a Twitter post late Monday, revealed she was “attacked” by a “completely out of control” and “insane woman.” The Georgia Republican claimed she was “sitting at my table, working with my staff, and never even noticed these people until they turned into demons.”
Greene went on to call her attackers “self righteous, insane, and completely out of control,” and accused them of possessing zero “respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.”
The congresswoman said the eye-opening attack made her believe “our country is gone.” “People used to respect others even if they had different views. But not anymore. Our country is gone,” Rep. Greene wrote.
I was attacked in a restaurant tonight by an insane women and screamed at by her adult son.
They had no respect for the restaurant or the staff or the other people dining or people like me who simply have different political views.
They are self righteous, insane, and… https://t.co/cJWLIAKiyp

On Tuesday’s The View show, the typically Left-leaning hosts actually defended Rep. Greene. Co-host Joy Behar criticized Rep. Greene’s attackers and said nobody “should be going up to any of us, anybody in public, and harassing us.”
“I have to say, I’m on Marjorie’s side for this one. Because I don’t believe that anybody should be going up to any of us, anybody in public, and harassing us and that goes for you, too, Marjorie, because you were harassing AOC and you were stalking David Hogg, the kid that survived the Parkland shooting,” Behar explained.
Fellow host, Sunny Hostin echoed Behar’s comments. “I didn’t like that experience, and I don’t think she [Greene] should experience it. But she’s this professional troller, you know, she was disrespectful to the President of the United States during the State of the Union, she heckles people all the time. I need more information on this,” Hostin stated.
“What does she mean by attack?” Hostin said before Behar interrupted her with a call to simply believe the Georgia congresswoman. “Let’s take her word for it, in this case… totally agree with her, it’s incorrect, it’s wrong. It’s not okay,” Behar said of the attacks.
