No one wears egg on the face like Joy Behar: Watch her correction after giddy fake news … with a twist

No one wears egg on the face quite like Joy Behar.

“The View” host and former comedian made news on Friday for her knee-jerk, over-the-top reaction to a false report by ABC’s Brian Ross that presidential candidate Donald Trump had instructed his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials.

Behar would soon find out that the joke was on her when hours later ABC had to retract the “bombshell” portion of its story with the correction that it was president-elect Donald Trump who allegedly instructed Flynn to contact the Russians.

In other words, standard operating procedure.

“On Friday’s show, apparently I was guilty of premature evaluation. I hear they have a pill for that,” Behar said on Monday.

Behar read a portion of ABC’s statement about the correction and tried as best she could to cover for network’s colossal “mistake.”

In a statement read on “The View” Monday, ABC News said the report “had not been fully vetted through our editorial standards process.”

“It is vital we get the story right and retain the trust we have built with our audience,” the statement read. “These are our core principles. We fell far short of that yesterday.”

Behar’s excuses and attempt to make a joke out of Friday’s embarrassing display did little to quell the backlash she continued to receive on social media:
