Joy Behr openly admitted Tuesday that there is a double standard in how Joe Biden and Donald Trump are handled on ‘The View’ and in the media. A recent example surrounds the discovery of classified documents from Biden’s vice presidency in a private office.
Reports broke earlier this week that Biden’s personal attorney found classified material in his office at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, a “think tank” at the University of Pennsylvania where he was an emeritus professor from 2017 to 2019. In November.
Although it seems like an eternity, Trump has long drawn attention for his handling of classified documents.
Trump raids FBI for classified documents
You may recall the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in August 2022. The FBI raid was unprecedented and was executed on a DOJ search warrant based on a referral from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in connection with an effort to collect presidential materials. Taken from the White House.
In fact, President Biden himself called Trump’s declassification of documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate “irresponsible” just a few months ago.
Hillary Clinton – blacklisted for mishandling classified data – weighed in on Trump’s attack, declaring that “no one is above the law, and the rule of law must be our standard in a democracy.”

President and Vice President are not the same
While the media and Democrats continue to downplay the importance of the incident, CNN reports that Biden’s records on his tenure as vice president under Obama and “Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom” are related to sensitive global issues.
Aside from the topic’s potential global implications, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene highlights another key difference.
Only the President has the authority to declassify documents. Green points to the fact that Biden removed these documents from the White House as vice president, a crime neither DOJ nor NARA could overlook.
Joe Biden took classified documents out of the White House when he was vice president.
The VP does not have the power to classify, only the POTUS.
Joe Biden stole classified documents.
This is a very serious crime.
DOJ and NARA cannot sweep this under the rug and harass Trump.

Despite this major difference, prominent liberals continue to condone Biden.

The Justice Department is now reviewing classified documents found in the President’s Penn Biden Center office.
Will FBI Now Raid Biden’s Residence Like Trump’s?
Given the reported content of classified documents and the fact that these documents were taken by the Vice President, should the public expect a similar response from the DOJ?
“When is the FBI going to raid Joe Biden’s multiple homes, possibly the White House?” President Trump asked the truth on a social media platform. “These documents are definitely not classified.”

Donald Trump Jr. suggests a double standard.
Why the delay?
The discovery was reported to the National Archives on November 2.
That means this new report on classified document mishandling comes hot on the heels of Trump’s high-profile FBI raid. Yet it took more than two months for this discovery to hit the news cycle?
November 2, 2022 is the day before the interim period. Some questioned whether the report was deliberately kept out of the news after those critical intervals.
Representative Dan Bacon (R-NE) said on the matter, “Those classified documents were known before the election and were deliberately hidden from the American people. I think that is wrong. “
Joy Behr Declassified Document Double Standard At ‘Feet Of Donald Trump’
But ultimately ‘The View’ host Joy Behar demonstrates this double standard best. Behar may ramble and flub GOP Rep. Byron Donald as she tries to smear him, but she’s on full display of her hypocrisy.
In response to Whoopi Goldberg, Behr maintains, “There are differences in what happened.” Only to declare that a double standard exists because Trump is a “liar” and Biden deserves the “benefit of the doubt.”
“We all know Trump is a liar and a thief. We know that. So it’s not a big leap to say that he messed up and he lied. We don’t think Biden is a liar and a thief, so we give him the benefit of the doubt.
Ironically, the overzealous host argues that it’s conservatives who “spin” the incident and lie “like that Donaldson guy.” Joy Behar doesn’t even know Byron Donald’s name but feels entitled to bash him on national television.
“You can lay it at the feet of Donald Trump,” Behr ends her soapbox.

After Behr’s candid admission, co-host Sarah Hines tried to downplay the existence of a double standard.
“Well, about everything [Donald Trump] It was unprecedented. So, I think when you see the intention.
