(FreedomWire.org) – ABC’s “The View” co-host Joy Behar suggested Friday that actor Alec Baldwin was criminally charged over the accidental on-set killing of a cinematographer because of his liberal politics.
Behar actually suggested that New Mexico prosecutor criminally charged Alec Baldwin because she is a “big Republican.”
“The DA who is indicting him, or whatever the legal term is right now, she’s a big Republican. I’m only saying this because Alec Baldwin is a target for Republicans,” Behar said. “They cannot stand him.
“I’m not saying anything more than that,” Behar boasted, throwing her hands into the air with a smirk on her face.
As Behar was making her accusation, the camera panned out and showed the reaction of co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin and guest co-host Rachel Lindsay. Both women were obviously disgusted at the claim. They rolled their eyes and immediately challenged it.
The actor was charged Thursday with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The armorer on the Western film, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, received two counts of involuntary manslaughter as well.
Hutchins was killed during filming in October 2021 when a gun Baldwin was holding fired a live round at the film crew. According to protocol, there should have never been any live rounds used on set.
Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor appointed by the DA to the case, said in a statement, “The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”
On “The Ingraham Angle,” Harmeet Dhillon gives her opinion on the charges brought against Alec Baldwin. She weighs in on what the DA, Mary Carmack-Altwies, revealed about the case in an interview. The charges brought against Baldwin have nothing to do with politics, but everything to do with state laws.
However, Behar didn’t take the time to review the evidence before she claimed it was political. If she had, she would have realized the DA is actually a Democrat.
