Joy Behar Calls Caitlyn Jenner 'He' on National Television

(Lorenzo Bevilaqua/ABC via AP)

On The View, Joy Behar served up something not much heard on network TV.

As you likely know, California’s oft-maligned (and, possibly, soon-to-be-recalled) Gavin Newsom has a new challenger: Ladies and gentlemen, I give you potential Gov. Jenner.

Caitlyn certainly splashes some color onto the political scene.

Personally, I love the move — the worst thing about politics as usual is…politics as usual.

Where will Caitlyn’s official filing leave those who hate Republicans but hold to identity politics?

Apropos, on Friday, Joy and the gang discussed Caitlyn’s candidacy.

The woman went rogue: She called Caitlyn — formerly Bruce — “he.”

Multiple times.

Behar as bold:

“He’s got this guy, Brad Parscale, running his campaign. What do you think about that? I mean, that guy was accused of using campaign funds to enrich himself.”

 

Then:

“That’s who’s running his campaign — or her campaign, rather.”

Plus:

“I think that he should — she, rather — should take a seat and let somebody with the credentials take over a major state like California.”

To that point, she pointed to evidence:

“I mean, look at Biden, who has so much experience, and he’s doing a fantastic job. There’s your evidence right there.”

Joy was tuckered out; so went her apology:

“[F]irst of all, let me apologize for my pronoun mix-up. I think I just didn’t get enough sleep last night.

She also went with “whatever”:

“I had no intention of mixing them up. And I tried to correct it immediately but, whatever, it just came out.”

Again:

So I’m sorry if anybody was upset by that.”

Surely many were shocked by Joy’s jawing.

She’s a known devoted Democrat, and the aisle’s left side has potently prioritized pronouns.

See for yoself:

And, perhaps, most notably:

In fact, in January, Nancy Pelosi rolled out new congressional rules conspicuously free of gender-specific terms.

And you’re surely aware of pronouns being proudly placed in Twitter bios — a prominent reason fired The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano was initially condemned:

Will Joy be derided for her problematic pronouns?

She apologized, but — as we’ve perpetually seen — where outrage is concerned, repentance’s power appears to have been plundered.

I hope she’s forgiven.

Going forward, will the mistake repeat itself? Time will tell — especially if the West Coast soon gives rise to Governor Caitlyn Jenner.
