“The View” co-host Joy Behar is blaming Trump supporters for the toxic train derailment disaster in Ohio by trying to connect the incident with the Trump administration’s safety regulations.
During the show, the co-hosts were talking about the sorrows of the locals of East Palestine and discussing the visits to the place of incident by Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and former President Donald Trump, when Behar suddenly started ranting.

“Can we talk about regulations for a second? Because it seems to me that Republicans are obsessed with this notion of the free market and they don’t like a lot of regulations.”
Co-host Sara Haines added:
“Because it means profit. When you deregulate, you get profit.”
“Yeah! I know, but for example, there were very few plane crashes, thank God! And that’s because the industry is highly regulated. We have to pay for regulations and safety standards, otherwise, where are we? We’re all gonna go up in flames!”
“I don’t know why they would ever vote for him, for somebody, who, by the way, he placed somebody with deep ties to the chemical industry in charge of the EPA’s chemical safety office.”
Behar pointed into the camera and yelled:
“That’s who you voted for in that district!”
“Donald Trump, who reduces all safety. He did in those days.”
Co-host Alyssa Farrah Griffin tried to raise a point as she said that President Biden made a terrible mistake by not visiting East Palestine.
However, Behar ignored her statement and said:
“They need to look past the photo ops, these people, and say, ‘Who’s doing the job here?’ Forget about the photo ops!”
