On The View, Whoopi Goldberg asked why so many in the media and celebrities jumped to conclusions about the viral video with the Covington Catholic students.

Without skipping a beat, Joy Behar confirmed what everyone already knew: “Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office.”

From RealClearPolitics:

WHOOPI GOLDBERG, HOST: Many people admitted they made snap judgments before these other facts came in. But is it that we just instantly say that’s what it is based on what we see in that moment and then have to walk stuff back when it turns out we’re wrong? Why is that? Why do we keep making the same mistake?

JOY BEHAR: Because we’re desperate to get Trump out of office. That’s why.

ABBY HUNTSMAN: Not everybody though.

GOLDBERG: What does that have to do —

BEHAR: I think that’s the reason. I think the press jumps the gun a lot because we just — we have so much circumstantial evidence against this guy that we basically are hoping that Cohen has the goods and what have you and so it’s wishful thinking.

GOLDBERG: Right, but let’s talk about the kids in this particular confrontation since that’s the question at hand.
