Joy Behar Says Abortion Is A Privacy Issue, But COVID Vaccines Aren’t

On Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” cohost Joy Behar had yet another deranged meltdown. This time, she said that while abortion is a privacy issue, COVID-19 vaccines are not as she defended the concept of vaccine passports.

“If I have to get a vaccine on my passport, so be it,” Behar said. “You know, I mean, if you’re so scared or so intent or you’re a Republican male with wants to screw around with the libs or something, then don’t come on the cruise with me. Leave the buffet to me. Get a rowboat. Don’t even go there with me.”

“Also, this idea that it’s a privacy issue, why is this a privacy issue?” she added. “The same people who say it is overreach are anti-choice. Roe v. Wade was settled on a privacy issue. It’s the law. This is an invasion of my privacy when you are sick in the same building as I am in. I’m against that. I am totally against you coming anywhere near me without a vaccine. I would like you to prove it. Don’t the kids have to get vaccines to get into school? Don’t you have to get a malaria vaccine to go to certain countries? Come on!”

When it came time for the conservative cohost Meghan McCain to speak on this, however, she had a different point of view.

“My first big issue that I really don’t believe that the White House and Democrats are doing a good job to get Republicans on board with getting vaccinated,” McCain said. “So much of this is political. And I think Republicans being screamed at like they’re dumb rednecks that are trying to be super-spreaders, of course they’re not going to want to get the vaccine. I don’t make the rules. This is just the world we’re living in.”

“Conservatives and Republicans, part of our DNA is questioning big government,” she added. “It’s questioning being told what to do. It’s questioning our privacy.”
