Joy Behar, host of the program "The View," once again took shots at president-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday, this time focusing on his mental health. President-elect Donald Trump must “step down before the inauguration before they give him the nuclear codes,” Joy Behar said.
Joy Behar Talks On President-Elect Donald Trump's Mental Health
“Do we have to wait until the hammer and sickle is on the American flag before we stand up to this guy?” Joy Behar asked. Josephine Victoria "Joy" Behar is a well-known American comedian, writer and actress. She is currently a co-hosts the ABC daytime talk show The View. She hosted The Joy Behar Show on HLN from 2009 to 2011 and Joy Behar: Say Anything! on Current TV, from 2012 until the channel switched formats in August 2013. Behar's new weekly late-night talk show, Late Night Joy, premiered on TLC in November 2015.
Behar's show named “The View” has a panel in which they are discussing a Washington Post report that claimed the CIA believes strongly that the foreign government intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help Trump win. According to Daily Caller, the FBI has done its own investigation and has yet to find any conclusive evidence to support that finding. “It’s like they are discrediting the CIA, his campaign and he, the president-elect of this country, is discrediting the organization that basically protects us from foreign invasion,” Behar said.
Joy Behar is deeply concerned about Donald Trump, not only because of his policies but because she doesn’t believe he’s mentally stable enough to serve as the Commander in Chief, as per Raw Story. “This new administration is bringing something in we haven’t seen in a long time and that is—” Whoopi Goldberg began, before being cut off by Behar. “Mental illness,” Behar said. She then apologized, saying that she couldn’t control herself from making the quip. “It’s not that I don’t agree with him. He’s not right in the head.
What Is Mental Health?
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected.
On the other hand, as warned by Medline Plus, mental illnesses are serious disorders which can affect your thinking, mood, and behavior. There are many causes of mental disorders. Your genes and family history may play a role. Your life experiences, such as stress or a history of abuse, may also matter. Biological factors can also be part of the cause. Mental disorders are common, but treatments are available.
