Despite backing a President whose greatest hits include “grab ’em by the p****y” and “knock the crap out of him,” Trump supporters often chastise Democrats for not being palatable enough, calling them to respond to disagreements with civility.
So when musician and Trump supporter Kid Rock called Joy Behar a “bitch” live on Fox News, comedian and longtime co-host of The View did just that.
It all started when Fox host Steve Doocy interviewed Kid Rock at a Conservative gathering. Amidst calls for coming together and hearing different ideas, Rock said:
“I would say, Y’know, Love everybody. Except, I’d say screw that Joy Behar bitch.”
As the crowd cheered on his comments, horrified Steve Doocy admonished him, the grinning Kid Rock corrected himself.
“I mean lady! I mean lady!”
The following day, Behar used her platform on The View to call him out:
“All I can say is this ‘bitch’ and these ‘bitches’ would be happy to have you on the show and have a beer.”
Watch it all go down below:
Behar’s co-hosts were quick to back her up as well, with Conservative strategist Ana Navarro saying:
“I’m happy to hash it out with him, but he’s gonna have to do better than beer with me. If he’s gonna call you a bitch, the least he can do is show up with blue label.”
Twitter felt the same, praising Behar and roasting Rock.
GO JOY!!! 👍🏿🌟❤️🎉👊💪🏽🤗

She was much more gracious than I ever would have been. She certainly showed more class than Bob.

Always looks like he needs a shower, some deodorant and a defense attorney.

Meanwhile, Republicans and Democrats alike were conflicted at whether The View should go through with it if Kid Rock were to agree.
I am torn whether or not I want Kid Rock to go on Behar's show. I want him to go but I don't want him to help them with their lower than standard ratings.
What should he do? https://t.co/UYg1nnyeWS

Keep in mind, there is no vaccine for Kid Rock. To prevent a health crisis everyone should avoid any place that kid rock is present.

As often happens on The View, the event opened up a passionate discussion.
