On "The View," Joy Behar criticized Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-MI, on Tuesday for her consistent refusal to acknowledge that Israel wasn't behind the explosion at a Gaza hospital, likening her to Trump by saying she spreads "lies like Trump."
During a discussion about antisemitism in the context of the conflict between Hamas and Israel on "The View," co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin pointed out that some Harvard graduate students, among others, were making allegations that Israel was solely to blame for the escalating violence.
"That is what Jews have faced since before the Holocaust, but since the Holocaust. They are one of the only groups whose right to exist is constantly questioned and they have to defend it. It's right, left, center. I've called it out when it's on the right, so I'm going to call it out when it's on the left. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, they have dabbled in dangerous antisemitism," Griffin said.
Behar said Tlaib "still will not admit that that attack on the hospital came from Hamas."
"They have videos showing it, but she goes out there and lies like Trump," Behar continued.

Co-host Sara Haines cited Barack Obama, mentioning that past Israeli administrations have tried to establish a two-state solution, but faced consistent resistance from the opposing side.
"You can say Israel has questionable policies. Jewish people feel that. I’ve seen that, they have questionable policy. Where is the rage when people talk about them living, Palestinians, living in an open air policy that the governing body intercepts aid? Whereas Israel built bomb shelters, Hamas built tunnels to further attack its neighbors. This is what it comes down to, you are either pro-co-existence which means Israel has a right to exist, and Palestine. Obama quotes in his speech that there have been instances in which previous Israeli governments made meaningful efforts to resolve the dispute and provide a path for a two-state solution, efforts ultimately rebuffed time and time again from the other side," Haines said.
Co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out to the audience, "Hamas hasn’t had a free democratic election since 2005."
