Joy Behar took her hatred for President Donald Trump to a whole new level this week when she had the nerve to blame him for the tragic California synagogue shooting that took place this past Saturday.

While discussing the shooting at the Chabad of Poway Synagogue on Monday’s episode of “The View,” Behar said that Trump was the “culprit” behind the tragedy.

“I want to say something about Trump. Last week Biden introduced a video where he brought up Charlottesville. We all saw that. It was very well done. It reminded me we’re losing the soul of America,” Behar said, referring to her show’s interview with Joe Biden last week. “The next day Donald Trump defends Charlottesville once again. Says that these people were historians, they were more interested in Robert E. Lee then the fact that they were saying ‘Jews will not replace us,’ they were just historians.”

“Then on Saturday in the morning this assault on the synagogue. Then Saturday afternoon ‘our hearts are with the victims.’ He talks out of both sides of his mouth,” she continued, according to Fox News. “He’s provocative. He gives dog whistles constantly to these people. Then Kellyanne goes out there and defends him and says ‘no no no,’ and he is like ‘no no no.’ Take responsibility for your actions. Mr. President, you are the culprit.”

It should be noted that Trump paid tribute to the victims within hours of the tragedy while speaking at a Wisconsin rally.

“Our entire nation mourns the loss of life, prays for the wounded and stands in solidarity with the Jewish community,” Trump said. “We forcefully condemn the evils of anti-Semitism and hate, which must be defeated.”

For Behar to place blame for this shooting on Trump and imply that he is anti-Semitic is incredibly ignorant. Trump’s own daughter and grandchildren are Jewish, and he has made relations with Israel a far bigger priority of his presidency than the left’s precious Barack Obama ever did. Since taking office, Trump has made fighting against anti-Semitism one of his top goals, yet the left continues to try and portray him as anti-Jewish.

It’s these baseless and melodramatic attacks on Trump from the left that have alienated moderates who might consider voting Democrat from ever going that way. This is a prime example of the media trying to blame Trump for absolutely everything they can, even when they have no evidence to support their claims. If Behar continues to keep this up, she might just end up contributing to Trump winning the next election, just as she did in 2016.
