Is there anyone who folks on the left wouldn’t give a platform to if that person is against President Donald Trump?
“The View” host Joy Behar, who is well known for her dislike of Trump, decided she wanted to test the limits of that theory by citing comments of white nationalist Richard Spencer.
Why? Because he used to be for Trump but now isn’t.

From Washington Examiner:
“There’s one small thing, you were saying, ‘What’s some good news?’ Well, this was a tiny thing that I noticed,” Behar said. “You remember Richard Spencer? He’s basically the organizer of Unite the Right, the white nationalist group that was marching in Charlottesville and was all in for Trump. Not anymore.”
Behar then read Spencer’s tweet from Tuesday, in which he expressed regret for “voting for and promoting” Trump in 2016. “Wow. That’s interesting,” Behar continued, noting that Spencer’s flip-flop is likely due to Trump’s decision to order the killing of Iranian terrorist Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
Welcome to the Resistance! Um, Joy, he’s still a white nationalist you just gave air to on your show.
Can we also mention that it’s not quite new or news that Spencer is not in favor of Trump?
CNN actually put him on the air to attack Trump in July, as we reported at the time.
What’s with the fascination with this character?
This goes with their false narrative that the Trump base is white supremacists, so if a white nationalist stops supporting him, that must mean the support for Trump is cracking.
People just didn’t see the point in airing anything he had to say.
Lesson: Crazed leftists will speak well of literally ANYONE, no matter how despicable, who opposes Trump.

So, applying left logic, that means Behar is herself a white nationalist.

One person says they’re not gonna vote Trump, Joy Behar goes gaga. Thousands of former Democrat voters say they’re going to vote for @realDonaldTrump in 2020; crickets. The hubris is strong in this one…

Why do liberals give white nationalists so much airtime? What sense does saying something like this make? Stop giving these people a platform.
