Fiery 'Preaching to a Very Stupid Choir': Watters, 'The Five' Hosts Sound Off on Joy Behar
Jesse Watters ripped Joy Behar over her comments that Kim Jong Un and Vladimir Putin have more sanity than President Trump, saying she is "preaching to a very stupid choir."
Behar, a co-host on ABC chat-fest "The View," made the comments Thursday in response to Trump's tweets threatening military action against Syria.
Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!

“We have gotten to the point in this world now where we have to rely on the sanity of Kim Jong Un and Putin over the president of the United States,” she said.
Watters noted that Trump's tweets had nothing to do with any confirmed action, and that he was just responding to the chemical attack in Douma.
"[Any] person that knows anything about the news knows this," Watters said. "[Behar] is preaching to a very stupid choir."
Behar went on to ask conservative co-host Meghan McCain if she thought Putin and Kim were less "moral" than the president, and "on what topic."
"Chemical gassing of children," McCain answered. "Last time I checked, America isn't doing that to anyone."
Greg Gutfeld said that Behar "has PTSD -- that's 'President Trump Stress Disorder. That means no matter what he does, it's through this emotional this emotional prism that makes her upset."
"Joy needs more joy in her life," Gutfeld said.
Kimberly Guilfoyle added that Behar's remarks were inappropriate and disturbing, noting the "horrific" type of leadership Kim has cast on his own people.
"You might as well throw [Syrian President Bashar] al-Assad in there," she said.
