Joy Behar is used to constantly being able to attack President Donald Trump on her ABC talk show The View without being challenged by anyone. That’s why it came as a surprise to her on Friday when top conservative strategist Roger Stone silenced her after she called Trump a liar on her show.
Gossip Cop reported that Stone describe the fixation on Trump’s alleged Russian ties as a “scandal without evidence so far.” Though he acknowledged that it took 18 months for the Richard Nixon investigation to “boil,” he argued there was “smoke” back then.
“We don’t even have smoke here. We have nothing,” he said.
Behar then jumped in to grill him about Trump recently tweeting that he hasn’t spoken to him in a while, despite Stone saying they talked recently.
“Who’s lying: you or the president?” she asked rudely.
“I’m not going to contradict the president,” Stone responded, but then he did just that, adding, “I will say I talked to him very recently.”
He went on to deny that Trump ever threw him under the bus.
“I want to testify,” he explained. “I don’t need a subpoena. I’m not asking for immunity. I’m already thinking about what I’m going to wear. I want to testify in public so everyone can hear what I have to say. I’m anxious to do it.”
Behar tried to pressure Stone to address rumors that he urged Trump to fire James Comey, but the strategist refused to submit to her demands.
“I’m not the source of the story,” he said. “Nor would I comment on it. I’ve always taken the position that private conversations between myself and the president… are confidential.”
“I have declined to talk about conversations I’ve had with him, and I’m not going to contradict him today,” Stone went on. “That said, he knows my views on Comey. I would’ve fired him five seconds after I took my hands off the bible.”
