Joy Behar Bashes GOP Leaders For Staying Silent on Trump Rhetoric: ‘They Are the Perpetrators Also!’

‘I think that it’s incumbent upon the Republicans in this country to start to speak out’

EXCERPT:

BEHAR: “I was going to say that I was watching Kasich speaking just before we came on, Governor Kasich, and he was speaking out against this type of thing and he basically named Trump as being one of the people — at least the big star of the show — as being very, very divisive. And I think it’s incumbent upon the Republicans in this country to start to speak out because as long as there is silence from McConnell and Ryan and Barrasso and Hatch and all those guys, there will always be a reaction. They have to now speak out against this. They did not open their mouths when he attacked your father. They did not open their mouths when he attacked a Gold Star family or when he said he was going to grab women by their genitals or when he said the Second Amendment will take care of Hillary Clinton. They stayed silent and they are the perpetrators also.”
