Joy Behar Issues Public Apology For Accusing Amy Coney Barrett Of Being In Hate Group
Joy Behar was forced to issue a groveling apology on ABC’s The View after the co-host of the hit show accused Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barret of being in a hate group.
Joy wanted Amy to recuse from some case before the court and this is how she made her case: “Now, here’s my question. She is, you know, a religious person. She belongs to the People of Praise group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled a hate group, and their founder has questioned the so-called separation of church and state.
“They believe that sex should occur only within marriage and, of course, between a man and a woman. They’ve got very specific things that they believe.
But Joy was wrong, the Southern Poverty Law Center does not have it on its list of hate groups.
A day late and a dollar short.
Joy Behar is made to walk back a false statement she made yesterday when she lied about Justice Amy COney Barrett being a member of a "hate group."

On Tuesday’s show, Whoopi Goldberg began the show by saying:
“Before we get to hot topics, Joy, do you want to clarify something?”
“I have to clarify something I said yesterday.
“I want to correct something I said on-air when I stated that People of Praise had been deemed a hate group.
“I just got them mixed up with another group, it was inaccurate.
“So I don’t think that’s right, I have to say, you know, sorry about that.
“Anyway, I conflated them.”
“It’s easy to do. You know, sometimes I call Joy, Sara,” Goldberg joked.
“Because we look so much alike,” Sara Haines said.
“Because you look identical to each other,” Goldberg said.
