Discussing the aftermath of Scooter Libby’s conviction, “View” co-host Joy Behar said “Dick Cheney is in trouble now…which is a delight for me.” Continuing, Behar asserted the Vice President’s blood clot was triggered “psychosomatically” because of all the “lying he did.”
So why doesn’t Bill Clinton have a blod clot the size of Texas? Anyway.
Joy Behar: I think it’s not a coincidence that he has a blood clot this week, which is Spanish for I’m going to go down next, I think I’ll retire.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Well that’s harsh
Behar: It’s not harsh, it’s a way out. I’m not making fun of the blood clot, I think probably, you know, psychosomatically might have a blood clot. Who wouldn’t have a blood clot after the lying he did? Talking about a back up of blood.
Of course, psychosomatic diseases aren’t actual diseases at all. They’re symptoms reported that have no physical explanation. Cheney’s blod clot is an actual, physical thing. So, as usual, Behar doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
