The View's Joy Behar on Thursday has once again come out with what some people are calling a tone-deaf comment on the ongoing situation in Ukraine, where Russian troops have invaded.
Behar is devastated that she might have to put her Italy travel plans on hold because of the situation in Ukraine as NATO puts defense plans into place.
"Well, I'm scared of what's gonna happen Western Europe too," Behar said.
"You know, you just, you plan a trip, you wanna go there," she said.
Behar then implied that the situation in Ukraine could somehow reach the borders of far-away Italy, and the idea scares her:
"I've wanted to go to Italy for four years, and I haven't been able to make it because of the pandemic, and now this, you know, it's like, 'what's gonna happen there too?"
Pivoting to talk about Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Behar opined:
"And, you know, this guy [Putin], he's a singular sensation in a certain way, you know what I mean?"
"I don't know that the whole, that he has that much support in his country, like you're saying. And, maybe that has to be addressed, because we've seen this movie before."
As of publishing, the Biden administration has imposed some sanctions on Russia, but hasn't taken any non-economic actions.
